Secret Santa: Who is interested?

Post by TripOpt55 on Mon Dec 02, 2013 4:32 pm

Spiddy suggested the idea of doing a Secret Santa gift exchange of some sort here which I think would be cool. Seems like at least me, Greenman and spiddy would be in so far. Who else would be interested? We could always make it rather cheap if it would get more people involved. I admittedly have only done of these once ages ago, but I'll try and figure out the best way to do one for us if we have enough people.

Participants:

TripOpt55
volvocrusher
KrubixCube
Captain N
KillaAssassin11
TheMatt
Rainjar
pspiddy
Kayshire Cat

If you change your mind about being involved, let me know.

I already kind of went too crazy with Christmas shopping for my family so I'd have to pass until next year when I can plan for it and my credit card balance isn't so horrifying lol (・_・;

I'd be interested, but how would it work in this crazy digital age we live in?

I'm interested, buying something for one of you lot is far less terrifying than having to buy a present for my boss at work ohgod why of all the names to pick out of the hat did I get that one.

If i have a job before the end of the year, sure.

I might do christmas cards if anyone wants one. I'd do that regardless

I'd do it. But how would we decide who gets who without having someone know who everyone has?

Yeah I don't know how we'd pull that off. Best I could think of is having a non-participant from here do the draw for us maybe? Still be worth doing if one person knew though. And like spiddy said, plenty of cheap gift ideas for people looking to get involved, but don't have much to spend.

I want a Christmas card of Spiddy with a bunch of ponies. Would try something original, but you can't get worse than ponies.

Steam is pretty great since you can delay the gift until Christmas as well...

Re: Secret Santa: Who is interested?

Sorry guys this slipped my mind. I think my only idea for how to make it work is for me to write everyone's name down and draw for them out of a hat. Then message people who they got. But then I'd know who had me. Which doesn't bother me, but if anyone has a better solution I'm open to it. I could always get a non-participant to do it I suppose.

Also would anyone be sending something via mail? I was thinking of it, but I guess it'd matter who I drew. So maybe if people have a preference between getting or giving gifts digitially they could let us know in here? I figure some people might not be willing to give their address or something. I don't know. I know we are running a little late here, but even if gifts arrive a little late it wouldn't be a big deal. And if we just go for digital gifts it won't be hard anyway.

Amazon wishlists could work too. You can buy something off of it and it can be sent directly to the owner of the wishlist without even giving anyone their address

Depends on how they have their list set up. You can set it to surprise you. though even if you have that set you can be a scumbag, and click a "spoil my surprise" button

I'd prefer amazon or steam wish list...either or. But I'm still up for it. Might have to wait a LITTLE bit since I need to get back to America first (no money in my American account)! And if we did wishlists no one would be disappointed and it's still a nice thought and yeah.

I'm game. And don't worry Captain N, I've been spending about $10 on my friends, so I'd be happy in the 5-10 range and if someone has even less money than that, I'd be happy to receive one of those <$5 off of Steam as well. It's the thought, not the price, eh?

I EXPECT FUNNY ATTACHED NOTES!

If I was clever and could program I would program a little something that would pair names at random and then automatically e-mail the paired individual of their pick, thus solving our problem.

Alas, the programming brains went to my dad and I got stuck with... ...well, I'll get back to you on that. But there has to be some way around this picking people conundrum.

Also, should we throw up an official signup on the first post so we know who's in?

Here i might have a way to keep it so we don't know who's getting us.

Can we make multiple accounts here?

Participants make a new account with a random name, and I mean random make sure its something people wont automatically connect to you.

We then attach these names to a random number generator or something like that. Post the results to this page. You send a dm to the name you got with your wishlist, info etc.

I think this might work, or I'm really tired and crazy.

btw I'll be in if we can do it a little late

I looked online and there are some sites that do it like:

http://www.secretsanta.com/

Maybe something like that would work. I did not really look into it. If anyone wants to take the initiative to look into that, that'd be cool. Or I will over the weekend.

Will add you on Kay. Late is fine.

I can confirm that the site will indeed work, and only one person has to create an account. We probably will need to know each others emails though.

Bummer. Wish I could have been apart of the thing but have to plan for other things this coming year. Trip, if you ever want to start a sweet tradition of sending each other Funko Pop figures I'm all for it!

That'd be awesome Bret. When things calm down for you next year we could certainly try that. Also my brother grabbed me a couple more and gave them to me as a late Christmas present. Arya and Tyrion have joined my collection!
