HF Devils Secret Santa!




Ho Ho Ho!!! Greetings, from the North Pole (err, the Jersey Shore). I am your Secret Santa coordinator

Another board that I'm a member of does something similar, and I thought it would be a lot of fun to do. Here's how it works:
  1. Send me a PM with the required info below to sign up for HF Devils Secret Santa. Obviously, this is 100% optional, but if you don't sign up, you won't get to participate in the festivities!
  2. I collect the information and randomly distribute the required information to each Santa. Each person will be the Santa for one other person.
  3. Using the information about the person in the PM and from what you know by that person's posts, you buy/make a gift valued at ~$25, and mail the gift to them in time for the holidays.
  4. Someone else mails you a gift
  5. Everyone posts in here what they got and tries to figure out who was their Santa! Hopefully everyone has a good time and will want to do it again next year!
  6. This should go without saying, but people of all religions are welcome to participate in this. It's called Secret Santa because that's what similar things have been called in the past.

Below are the rules for the 2011 Secret Santa event:
  1. Any questions on the Secret Santa process should be directed to me via this thread or via private message (please do not use email). Subject should always be: <your HF handle> Secret Santa 2011. (and yes, you should replace “your HF handle” with your ACTUAL handle) I plan to respond through the PM system so make sure you have PM space if you want to participate.

  2. The expected limit on your gift purchase is $25 USD and does NOT include shipping and packaging costs. Of course, I am sure no one will mind gifts of higher value if you want to go above and beyond. Understand that this is an estimate. I do ask that people view this as an "expected" level so that some people do not get disappointed. Again, this lower limit is exclusive of shipping and packaging costs. Also, plan to send something personal to people. Local-only gifts are greatly encouraged

  3. Secret Santas have the option of remaining anonymous. I will not disclose names nor addresses of anyone who participates to anyone other than their Secret Santa. I expect that any information you receive from me will not be shared with anyone else.

  4. The coordinator assumes no responsibility for delivery or non-delivery of gifts. I want this to be fun and hope that everyone who participates will have fun and get into the holiday spirit. Understand, however, that failure to deliver will result in your being denied participation in future years, and may result in this never happening again, depending on the circumstances. In addition, delivering gifts 6 months after the holiday does not count as delivering. Everyone has a right to expect a gift during the holiday season. If you cannot commit to this, do not participate. I also highly recommend that you include a delivery verification mechanism when you ship, that will take care of a lot of problems.

  5. You must be registered on HF at the time you send your private message. IF you are a lurker, you must register on HF before becoming a Secret Santa participant. You may also want to post a small blurb in here about who you are (no names) and what kinds of things you're interested in so that your Secret Santa can have some clues as to what to get you.

  6. Deadline to participate is December 1st, 2011 at 5 pm Eastern. If you wish to participate, you MUST send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to me. Subject Line: <your HF handle> Secret Santa 2011. For example, it should say "onefatsurfer Secret Santa 2011". In this private message, you must provide the following information and PLEASE answer the questions in the order provided below as that will help me input the data into my spreadsheet. In fact, please just copy the questions below into the private message window and answer the questions. I make no promises of anyone getting into the process if they miss this date and do not follow the process as detailed.

    a. Your full name (first and last name):

    b. Your FULL mailing address for your gift. This address should be one where you can receive a package in December.

    c. Your email address (must be verifiable):

    d. Your HF handle:

    e. Your Gender:

    f. Some facts about yourself that might help your Secret Santa shop for your gift. Please make sure they are helpful hints... (DO not be shy... is there something particular you would like to get? Also, list any food allergies you may have.)

    g. A "Yes" or "No" as to whether or not you are willing to send a gift outside your country. If at all possible, please be willing to ship out of the USA. We have a decent number of members here that reside in other countries.
AGAIN, please help Santa out by using the SUBJECT LINE as requested.

If I receive enough participants early on, I may go ahead and match up members so you can get a head start on your gift buying. I would then provide a second match-up after the December 1st deadline. Santa has to get his rest in before the mad rush of the holiday season!

Please be sure to read Santa updates throughout this thread!!! I also encourage you to have fun and post in this thread often... tell us the fun you are having buying, anything related to this holiday event!


*All data will remain encrypted on my personal computer and deleted on January 1st.

I'd like to do this, but I'm not sure I will have the money. When is this going to be finalized?

If I do this, I'm pretty sure whoever gets the vermont maple syrup will know it's me.
