Since Santa sent all of the Secret Santa PMs, I thought it would be nice to have a little ongoing Secret Santa thread going on like we usually do  
Feel free to post anything SS-related here (except of course anything going against the rules of SS, obviously   ).
As a reminder, please wait until Christmas and the reveal thread to show off what you received.

Also, since it has happened in the past, negativity will not be tolerated in this thread.

Anyway, enough warnings and reminders, and time to get Secret Santa-ing!!! (I already have a few ideas for my recipient myself! I think he's gonna love it!!!)

I'm going to have to do a little more research before I get anything for my ss. Lot of options and things I'm not too familiar with.

Oops...

Okay but for real tho, I got a pretty easy one this year. Guy asked for a couple of cheap games, I put in some bids for em on the ebay. If I don't win em in the next few days I'll just buy em. Now all I gotta do is wait for the stores to start rolling out the candy canes and summer sausages and other extra christmasy goodies I can throw in there. Maybe a fruit cake. I gotta make a card too. Last year I made a bunch pearler bead sprite ornaments. I dunno if I'm gonna make that effort this year, it's pretty tedious and I've been exhausted with work lately. Either way I think my secret santee is going to be very happy.

I thankfully had an easy one this year. I got someone who wants NES games and I just happen to have some sitting on my shelf that I was planning on selling. Started cleaning them up, I'll probably have them shipped out by next week. I have to find my tools though...they should be around here in this mess somewhere lol. I'll probably throw in some candy in a snack baggy, hopefully he'll be able to enjoy the candy...I'll put a few different ones just in case he has allergies to one or the other.

Need to find some wrapping paper...or make my own like I did last year since we don't wrap gifts in this house :/

My person asked for games for a few systems I don't collect for for the most part, and from what I can tell I'm guessing he already has whatever games would fit his fancy from my collection. Plan right now is to go to eBay, look for some of the specific options he put, and make some 3D printed goodies of his favorite series  .

Hopefully no one finds this to be too difficult a task! As others have already done, feel free to message me for any clarification needed. I tried to look over every message to make sure it felt like they were clear. But no worries if you want more details or options from your recipient.

-------------------------
Santa is currently on vacation and will return in November. Please direct any communications to a mod until then, as I will not be checking messages. Stay merry!

I'm very happy with who I got. (Is it "who" or "whom"? My English sucks, man. lol)

He's an all out pretty cool dude, and I've always considered him to be one of my good forum friends.   Hopefully I can get him something cool or something he needs to fill in his collection this year.  

As I mentioned in the other thread, I'm not just gonna stop giving gifts with one person.   I might just go with 2 this year, but we'll see how it goes. For any extra peeps this year, I'll provide a note for them stating that I'm not their "official" SS this year to avoid any confusion.

I am super excited about this and it is one of my favorite activities here at NA. I genuinely enjoy trying to put something together and giving a gift. I remember the first time hearing about the secret santa, I thought, WOW, the internet forum actually does this?! And I tried it out not knowing what to expect and had a great time with it. I think things like this are some of the things that differentiate us from other places and are great, positive community-building activities.

Thanks to everyone for participating and just remember, this should be enjoyable and is about making someone smile. Have fun with it and just do your best!

Secret Santa gave me an excuse to hit some game stores this weekend. My recipient's want list was broad but detailed enough I was able to make a nice gift box of goodies. My recipient should be pleased with what I picked up. I just need to finish polishing up & gift wrap what I bought and it should be in the mail by this weekend!

Here's a verbatim example: "OK, there's Ganon and miniature Ganon and there's these things like jelly beans and the miniature Ganon is more powerfuller, because when you touch him the flying eagles come down and the octopus shoots red rocks and the swamp takes longer." And the hell of it is, I know he's right. - Dave Barry

I've pick up a couple things for my person so far, but have been kind of weary. I wish I knew what they already had in their collection, because I don't want to overlap something they already have.

No need to spend money, you can just send me the Kay Bee sign and save yourself the shopping.

Ok, poll time. Which do you prefer. People requesting very-specific items or very-narrow possibilities or the type of giftee who gives a couple of general guidelines and says "go wild!"

When I wrote up my request, I try to be both. I sent a link to my Wants list but also said what items I love and that I like random surprises. I hope that helped you, Santa.

Personally, I like the semi-vague request. You can be creative, and that's always fun.

I wrote my info for Secret Santa in about the same format the year before. I hopefully wrote it in such a way where there are some specific items mentioned, but also vague areas to allow for creativity.
