Secret Santa

As we're now in October, I thought it (relativly) safe to bring this up. I just missed out last year, but I would love to join in this time. Please Mods, is anyone giving it any thought?

I could do it if people are happy to pm me their snail mail addresses, and whether they'd be prepared to post overseas.

As I recall the rules were:

that the gift should, where possible, be annonymous,
fit into a shoe box
cost about a fiver (£5 is running at about €5.80 or $7 as I type!), not counting postal charges.

I'll be happy to help, but i dont think i can take part. China's a long long way away!

I asked questions last year:

1. Is there anything that you're allergic to?
2. Is there anything that you would love to receive?
3. Is there anything that you really don't want (ie: soapmakers really don't want soap...)
4. What is your favourite colour?
5. Do you have any pets? (mainly to stop matching cat lovers with people allergic to cats, or to give the sender another idea of what they could send).

Thanks for that info, Fee :hugish:

Maybe I should also ask people their sex, if their boardname gives no clue, (like mine!!!)?

I'm in! I still have my secret santa fairy hanging up from last year!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
