    Secret Santa 2021 (Real Gift Exchange)

    I am quite late starting Secret Santa this year... Life has been so busy for me, being a first time mom and taking care of a baby. Anyways! Let's get this started, shall we?

    For those of your who haven't done this with us before, this is a real Secret Santa with members on this forum. You will be sending a real gift through the mail. (So make sure you are comfortable giving out your address if you want to join) Please be aware you could be shipping internationally, so don't send super heavy gifts.

    We don't really have a certain price limit, but I think anywhere from $5 to $15 is ok. But it's up to you, you can spend a little bit more, but don't go crazy. Really it's not the price that matters.

    So here is how this goes, if you want to join, go ahead and PM me your email address. I will give people a month to join. So on October 22nd, I will use a Secret Santa website we have been using for years, where I enter in all the email addresses, and then emails are sent to everyone, and in that email, you will get a link where you enter your wishlist and your address of where you want your gift to be sent to. Once everyone has done that, people will get an email with someone's wishlist and address so you can send them a gift! Make sure to send it in time so they receive their gift by Christmas.

    1. Deadline for joining: October 22nd.
    2. How to join: PM me with your e-mail address before the above date.
    3. Suggested price range for gifts: $5-$15
    4. Do not reveal your identity to the person you are buying for. This goes against the aspect of it being a secret. People who reveal themselves will be banned from joining the following year.
    5. It sounds cheesy, but have fun!!

    Hey everyone! Sorry I'm a bit late, but I wanted to let you know I started Secret Santa. You should have all gotten an email that will give you your drawn name.

    I should mention that I won't be home until the 31st (spending Christmas with my gf's family), so if mine gets home I'll have to wait until then to open it ^^'

    I'm looking forward to see what everyone got

    Hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas!

    I received my SS gift about a week ago but didn't open them until Christmas Day so I didn't know who it was from until then. I also posted my gifts out on the 16th I think so hopefully those arrived on time

    I'll hold off saying what I got and from who until more people say what/who they got

    I haven't received my gift yet, but I know it'll come later, because of an unforeseen situation. My secret santa has informed me about it.

    So if you all want to share what you got, you should go ahead and do so. Looking forward to seeing what everyone got.
