JPlop's Secret Santa'17 - Also, card exchange?

Postby boinsie » Tue Oct 24, 2017 3:46 am

Secret Santa in July December!! :rofl:
Image

Welcome to our seventh Secret Santa Exchange! Also new this year if anyone is interested: card exchange!?

"What's Secret Santa?"

A Secret Santa gift exchange works like this: Everyone that wants to participate is randomly assigned another person from the group to get a gift for. A cost ceiling is generally put in place (let's say $20). The identity of the person giving the gift is kept secret at least until the gift is given, though sometimes the sender never reveals him/herself.
In this case we will be mailing gifts, so do keep that in mind when shopping (perishables, fragile things, etc).
***NEW THIS YEAR*** Anyone interested in a holiday card exchange? This can be done separately from the Secret Santa (sign up for one or the other, or both!). I know I like sending/receiving holiday cards!

"How Do I Participate?"

1. Post in this thread with your intent to play. List either Secret Santa, Card Exchange, or both. If you're doing Secret Santa, add a list with your likes/dislikes/allergies to that post. This list should ideally include things outside of the H!P world because, let's face it, idol stuff is for the most part prohibitively expensive. ^^;
2. Send me a PM with your mailing address. Also let me know if you're willing to ship outside of your country. Foreign shipping costs can be expensive and I'll let you know if you can be accommodated.

The deadline to sign up is Sunday November 19th (over 3 weeks from now!). The morning of Nov 20th I'll have my husband match everyone's names up randomly with one another and he will PM everyone their Secret Santa's info. Please refer to this thread for their likes/dislikes!

LET'S KEEP THIS FUN FOR EVERYBODY!
Please only sign up if you're able to participate! :xmas:

I'll participate in both the Secret Santa and the card exchange!

Likes: Candy, snacks. Macha/green tea flavored things. The colors green, brown, white. Nature related-things, both plants and animals. Dinosaurs. Stuff about where you're from (especially if it's a different country... note, I collect foreign coins). Earrings (stainless steel). Needlessly cute things. Puzzles. I'm a HUGE Tsunku/Sharan Q fan. I love Koge Donbo and everything she's ever touched.

Dislikes: Sports, spicy foods. Disney. Coffee. Top 40 music. I don't really wear much jewelry... though, again, cute things are cute.

Allergies: I'm a vegetarian, so no meat or meat products. This includes obvious ingredients like meat, fish, or beef tallow/lard, but also other things you might otherwise think innocuous, such as gelatin, carmine, fish oil, etc. But milk/eggs/honey are fine. And I'm technically allergy-free. Bring on the peanuts! :hehe:

Just send me something interesting/creative/unusual (or whatever looks good to you). XD

One card received already!

I'm running late (as if I wouldn't be :miki: ), but I'll have my cards plus Secret Santa package in the mail by this weekend.

Edit: objects placed in mail. ETA whenever. XD

I wish I'd seen this, I had really good Christmas cards this year! They were made by a local artist.
I used to have a Tumblr about Idols...

I was suuuuper busy this week and suuuuuuper sick so excuse me for the lateness. Also excuse my typing. my hands are like sandpaper right now because i've been washing them constantly. not wanting to get anyone sick. so i've got gloves on trying to bring moisture back in..

I got something in the mail on the day i stayed home from work. A giant purple box sat outside. now, being that I'm also in the imgur secret Santa this year I was wary. They be super crazy with their packages too. But upon checking the return address I realized right away who it was from.

As frosty would say, Happy Birthday! This reminds me of the year i accidentally used birthday wrapping paper instead of christmas. :D
Image

Upon unwrapping I had to laugh. We have a lot of these fans at work. But oh, what could be inside?
Image

Oh, looks like my grocery order from the local Asian market. No biggie. :mikihead:
Image

Thank you Santa. Sorry I flaked and didn't throw up a likes/dislikes list. Again, super busy and I forgot. @-@

My mother wants to know what the dish is. Its rather pretty.

It’s a towel in the shape of an ice cream? I haven’t opened it yet.

Either that, or it's freeze-dried ice cream in the shape of a towel. :fear:

I arrived back from my holiday trip to California to a package at my doorstep. And what a package!

Some things to keep me warm through the winter-y months~
(Also--not pictured because I was sitting against it--a cute s'mores pillow)
Image
And some things to try to get me to be more introspective. The honeycomb will be a welcome distraction. XD
Image
And look! This bookmark has an old NYC subway token on it!! Talk about fun "currency" for my collection! :heart:
Image

Thank you so much, Secret Santa!!
My package is on its way! :fear: :thumbs-up:
