SECRET SANTA 2020 - Notifications incoming - Let the socially distanced stalking commence!
‹ Previous1234
  • Yes, it's B&B Secret Santa again. And since no one objected, I'm going to get it started.

    So, let's get started. What do you have to do to join in?

    1. All you need to do is send me a PM by the end of 24th October:
    - Let me know you're going to be involved
    - Give me a name and address for your gifts to be sent to
    - If you want, mention whether you could add to any potential gift fund (see below), or whether you might need it
    - Any other important info that either I or your Santa needs to know - e.g. you'd rather not send packages abroad, or your big loveable dope of a dog eats everything vaguely edible that comes through the letterbox

    2. On 25th October I'll see what the situation is with the fund, and if necessary contact those who've offered to help to ask for a small PayPal payment.
    Ideally, you can send the payment by the end of October, so I can pass it on as soon as the draw is done.

    3. On 31st October, I'll do the draw.
    I'll PM you the details of your target on 1st-2nd November.

    4. November is stalking/buying month. Get out there (or stay safely behind your computer screen) and find stuff for your target.
    Contact me if you have any info or questions you want to pass on.

    5. Start posting in early December, or potentially even earlier if you're sending abroad.
    I'll check up on everyone to see how things are going.

    6. It's Christmas. Open your presents.

    Who else is doing it?

    It's far from an ordinary year. I realise that a lot of people will be struggling with work situations (or lack of) and other stresses, so this might seem like the last thing you want to bother with. But it's precisely because it's been such a fuck-awful year and that this always brings a bit of joy into our lives that I want everyone to be involved. So, here's what I want to propose, and I hope it's taken in the right way.

    If you're someone who tends to spend quite generously on this thing and are in a position to do so again this year, I'd like you to spend less than you normally would, but donate a little to a central fund that others can use if they don't have anything to spare.

    When you PM me your details you can commit to the fund, call on its services, or neither. No questions and no explanation required. And then we take it from there.

    As I say, I would love it if everyone who wanted to could take part. I don't want a big gift opening extravaganza where anyone feels left out. Not this year, especially.

  • I'm in
    Cause I'm not getting any younger
    Some new kids trying to steal my thunder
  • Sound like a great plan Jon! Count me in!
    3DS friend code - 4725-7938-9169
  • I think if you’re gonna be Santa, then you can set the rules. Seems fair.

    Count me in too.
  • I'm in if my Santa guarantees they wear a mask and gloves when they package my prezzies.

    Also, DS sent me a WiiU and my flat reeked of fag smoke for weeks after. That was awesome please can I have DS

  • Jon I think your fund proposal is a great idea. 

    Also I'm in, obvs.
    Don't try and place me in a box, you cocks. If there's one thing I'm not, it's fucking rectangular.
  • Im in as long as i can have gonz for my secret santa. Wanna make sure i lick those presents for him.
  • The fund is a cracking idea

    I don't smoke in the home anymore so you're safe. I'll just fart in it beforehand instead.

    Damn it. Back to the drawing board
  • Faecal aerosols are proven to be worse than Covid breath, definitely don't do that. It's been found in sperm too but, you know, YOLO
    Help me Father, I think I am malfunctioning
  • Fuck I didn’t know about the sperm.
  • I am in fo sho
    I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts...
  • So, now I'm part of this irrational feelgood infidel ritual - I do feel like I must be heard. I'm only a foreigner and all, who didn't speak ze English until I was 15 or so, but I think you'll find Christmas is about giving PRESENTS. A gift is something you give your children to reduce their inheritance tax liability. A present is what you give them at Christmas. Usage of gift when we mean present is a hateful Americanism. That will be all

  • I am never confident in what I buy for others. I see others’ efforts and I feel shit. It’s the main reason I’m not minded to take part this year. I’m so bad at buying for others.
    I am a FREE. I am not MAN. A NUMBER.

    Yeah I am in

    Elf, I know I for one don't give a shit about what I get, the joy for me is in giving something I think the person would like or be interested in - some people are just crazy when it comes to present giving and that's fine, as is just getting something from Amazon. It's a trite saying but it really is the thought that counts.

    Great plan, Jon. I'm in.
  • Buying for Elf and Muzzy is easy. Just get their respective planning permission approved by their local council. Or has that happened already?

    If so, then a lego version of their homes with said extentions built. Job done. Boom.
  • Got mine. Structural engineer done. Gotta get building control sorted. Then get cracking.
    I am a FREE. I am not MAN. A NUMBER.
  • I’m in! Top idea with the fund as well.
  • Count me in. This fund idea is a nice plan too.
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • In as ever, for sure.
  • OK, so I'll update the OP later with the formalities.
