Selfsufficientish Santa

I am sure this has been mentioned before (well last year) we never actually got around to doing it. How do you all fancy setting up a selfsufficientish santa. It would mean that everyone who takes part would get a present and we could all put in a present. I will try and set up people together with people from the same country or at least continent to keep postage down or we could put next to our names if we don't mind sending a little gift to the other side of the world.

Does not have to be big gifts just a seed pack or something would be ok I think. Then I PM each of you with someones address to send off your gift to.

I think we need a time limit on when we have our names in by - have just done a check and its tomorrow for UK to australia for surface mail :shock: PErhaps will have to keep to country specific people. - Shall we say 18th December for last people to apply? - Last posting date is 22nd for UK.

Value limit that is an interesting one also have to consider postage cost, might be able to afford something for just £2 only to discover it will cost £5 to post. It is also hard to put a value on any home made gifts that you give out. Shall we say a limit of £5 just for now though?

I must also add that giving away home made stuff is fine too, even some extra seeds that you might have grown is still a gift. So there is no lower limit either. If you spend £5 great but do remember that you might not get £5 worth of stuff in return, but if it is some home collected seeds or whatever remember that you will probally save £5 on your food bill next year. :cheers:
