It's finally the weekend so we can have a thread edition!

Remember to ask your local post office about delivery times for international mail - many locations will not guarantee international mail sent in December will reach its destination by Christmas!

If you are concerned about your recipient getting their gift you can forward the tracking number to the organizers.

Better two weeks early than one day late!

You went above and beyond for the bracket man, I appreciate the effort. Last year my guy didn't even bother wrapping and just sent me a gift straight from the seller he had.

This. Cards are to be displayed and increase anticipation for Christmas!

question for you guys on some of the stuff in trying out for cards, would you rather listen to a song with a character you wrote down if it was bad quality, or would you go more for something else that wouldn't be as garbly? basically longer songs are harder to work with and a lot of character songs tend to be longer, so I'd like your thoughts

So I have like 10 of these from the movie screening, should I bother card gifting these to anon or will it just be wasted on people who may have never even seen the movie?
>>
>>133798997
shit, I really should individually wrap mine, I suck at wrapping though, should I wrap two CDs separately or together? what about the tenga? it didn't come with a box so I don't know how'd I wrap

>encouraging others to open cards early to make yourself feel better about opening cards early

Besides, cards often spoil the gift or are clearly intended to be read on Christmas. If you're that impatient, just throw it in a drawer and watch some anime until you forget about the card altogether.
>>
>>133800528
I would appreciate it I know

What's that, Anthem of the Heart? If you've got an Anon that's an AnoHana fan, it might be worth putting in.
>>
>>133800775
They didn't send my gifts with this card, it was on its own.

So I ordered my cards made at a typography, are cards with nice art on the outside and my shitty doodle on the inside a decent alternative to fully handmade cards? Hope the guys getting those won't hate me.

Cards that come with a gift are part of the gift and thus should not be opened until Christmas.
Cards alone are to be opened and displayed. not that anyone will come over to see. ;_;
>>
>>133800528
what movie?
>>
>>133800966
I made card with the intention of it being read before Christmas and purposely was vague about the gift, they'll be sent together and the gift will be wrapped so it's a non issue
>>
>>133800528
Send them, even if anon doesn't care about the movie he might care about one of the people who signed it.
>>
I can't stop people from opening their cards early just because I say it's the right thing to do, but consider holding it off. They're intended for Christmas and not reading a card builds more anticipation than reading one early, anyways.
>>
>>133801220
But if anon spent so much time making it for me, isn't it my duty to display it proudly for as long as I can?

I don't understand why anyone would wait to display a card. I hope my anons don't.
>>

*ahem*

So, NOW it's update time! I think I missed a few threads though so I'll have to go back and check, but anyway:

KO of OH, I'm not gonna lie, I don't know some of the worth of the stuff I bought for you. But since the one seller left the original price tag on an item, even with collector's value I feel like I overpaid for at least one of the things. I dunno. I'll try and stuff some extra stuff in there so you don't feel copped out on for the bracket you're in.

BC of MA, GA of NJ, KW of NY, and MS of CT, I'd like to apologize, I honestly don't even have any cards started yet. Some of it is laziness, but I also was going to a few counseling sessions to get out of this depression I've had the past few months (seems to be working) and [not] dealing with college and playing Yo-kai Watch still, which has also helped with the depression. Gomen. I do however have at least the base materials to make them, and everyone is domestic, so I can start doing my shitty linework soon and things should be okay.

Also in regards to KO of OH and KW of NY, I have the rest of your gifts/little extra goodie respectively still waiting somewhere in the mail. It looks like one of your gifts in Jersey on its way here (I'm in NY, so, not all that far away), but the big haul which includes another gift or so for you, and the extra goodie for you KW has apparently been stuck in JFK since the 12th. Urghhh, I hope I don't have to pay a fee. (If I'm thinking of the right place, JFK is such a bad airport, I remember I had some lady spill coffee on me here right before my flight as a kid.) But if stuff is late, that's why.

Um... I think that takes care of it all for now.
>>
The mugs that I ordered from the Walgreens sale arrived, and they look even better than they did online. My two card and one gift recipients will each be getting one. I hope you like them.
>>
>>133803801
>sale changed from $5 to normal price as I was checking out

Oh well.
>>
Well, I finally found a box big enough for all the shit I'm sending, so I no longer have the bullshit excuse of "it won't fit" convincing me to open one of the figures.

I escaped temptation.
>>
>>133804027
If you ordered everything from the same place then you automatically get a box the right size. At least I'm lucky enough for that to have happened.
>>
2/4 cards done, and I'm still worried if I can make it in time.
>what took you so long for each card
Lots of love
>>
Is anyone else sending a small gift to their assignment from last year?

They made me feel really good about giving them things last year, so I bought them a small figure of their favorite imouto and am sending a card and the Lindt candy they liked.
>>
>>133804136
I didn't. I had 3 shipments and 2 giftees, with any combination of boxes being the wrong size for either.
>>
>>133804027

I had the same problem. I had to repack a bunch of my figure boxes I had in storage to get one big enough.

That's the only problem having someone whos taste is so similar, I wouldn't mind having any of the gifts I bought. But that's the nice thing about giving.

Everything has arrived now, I just need to finish the 2 cards and the one to go with the presents.
>>

I'm excited, I got my first card today!

I'm freaking out cause I suck at making cards. Does anyone know where I can get blank cards, how big they should be, or how I would make my own?
>>
>>133805891
I'd usually try and make them digitally; I'm no photoshop expert, but it's way better than the stick figures I can barely draw.
Too bad I don't have access to a printer this semester. At all. Gotta find a way to make them by hand, somehow.

If you can't find one there, make your own. Cover up an old card or unrelated card, fold a post card in half, use a sheet of construction paper, even if it is a bit light.

Size? As long as you can get it in an envelope or can make an envelope for it. For Valentine's I got a card made of high vis pink printer paper, with another cutout of regular printer paper decorated with glitter. It was very nice.

Dear D O'B of NY

Your gifts arrived yesterday, I'll be sending them soon.
However I will be sending homemade cookies and it'd be better for you to eat them before Christmas so they don't go stale.
Your gifts will be individually wrapped, so feel free to open the box I send the gifts and cookies in when it arrives.

I've been working so much this month.
I have 3 days off in a row coming up soon though.
>>
when sending my gifts and cards, should I use my real name or some random /a/ related nickname?
>>
My recipient is a reddit meme-spouter with really entry level taste. He was also really demanding and unappreciative sounding in his requests. I think he's an underage. If I gift on the low end of the bracket, and tell him he's a shit, do I risk anything in future SS?

In my three years, I've never gotten someone like this.
>>
I forgot this year, I'll try next year.
How much would it cost me to ship something from Europe, to another European dude? I really dislike wasting money on packaging and shipping.
>>
>>133810133
I use my initials. I dont think it matters as long as it wont cause an issue if the package needs to be returned for some reason
>>
>>133810138
As long as you're within the bracket, no, I can't see how they could hold that against you. Especially if he acted like that. How did he even manage to request things in a demanding and unappreciative way? Definitely call him a shit.
>>
>>133810138

What were his requests? Or was it more about the way it was phrased?

Its my first year doing this and I think I got really lucky. I share a lot of quite specific interests with my Anon and he only live 20 minutes walk away.
>>
>>133810138
are you just being mean or is he that bad? What was his wishlist like? No matter what you do you should at least avoid being a complete Grinch, that shit's not cool.

Holy shit I only put like 2 things. It's like I'm trying to make it hard for people to get gifts for me. One of those 2 things was my waifu though, so if I get a whole bunch of stuff about her show I guess it wont be so bad.

It was the way he phrased it. Instead of requesting things or simply telling me what he liked, he was more commanding me to do things.
>Make your cards this way including x and y or I won't like it
>Buy whatever you want, but if you don't buy one of these I won't like it
Like that.

>>133810308
I would never grinch. I always go above and beyond. Usually I get people of similar interest, though, which never has been a problem.

Maybe I'm being too sensitive here.

JM?

I'm working on your cards, JM from UK and CF from NY. I hope you don't mind to receive A3 cards
>>
>>133811132
I'm more excited for my cards if anything, the cards I got last year were amazing and really made me happy, but I also enjoy finding nice gifts for my assignment.
>>
>>133810863
I actually got an anon like this. Instead of telling me about himself a bit, he blatantly said what he likes and that he has X-version of that already and that i shouldn't gift him that.

But me being the submissive loli that i am, I went through with his demands and the gift is at the post office waiting for me to pick it up.
>>
>>133811132
I enjoy the giving as well, but it's really nice when an anon puts a lot of effort into finding that perfect gift for you. So I look forward to that as well, but if it's pedestrian I wouldn't be upset.
>>

same here, but I've faith in my s/a/nta

LB from Switzerland half of your gift is done, the other half is hand-made and in progress.
SM from Finland your gift is ready, just waiting for the proper time to send, so that you don't get it too early.

Cheers to all other hardworking s/a/ntas

Dang. I promised not to worry about seeing if anyone mentions me in threads, but it's hard to stop that heart flutter when you think you spot it.
>>
>>133811967
>SM from Finland
Not that guy, but you should really send it asap. There's a postal strike happening here in Finland, so stuff will get delayed.
>>
>>133812155
Thanks for the heads-up. I'll keep track of the situation there. Does it also affect private companies like DHL/DPD/UPS and the like or is it just the federal post?
>>
>>133812155
I've got a card to send to Finland myself, thanks for the heads up. Don't suppose it'd take too long if it's just coming from Russia though?

I don't think it's with other corporations, but don't quote me on that.

>>133812307
Nobody knows. They try to solve it on Monday, but there's nothing concrete as of yet.
>>
Finally packed my present, will be shipping it on monday.
So this is my first time and I'm still not sure, do I get the present from the same guy I sent my present to or from another person?
It would be nice to get it from someone else since my guy is kind of a pleb and I'd prefer to get a present from someone cool.
>>
>>133812533
Someone else, but don't worry their taste will be just as shit.
>>
>>133812533
Your s/a/nta is different person, not your assignment.
As for the /a/non itself, it's hard to say. I got grinched the first time, but last year my santa was really nice.
>>
>>133812533
You (A) will send your present to (B) and (b) send their present to (C), and so.

But you can send to your santa a Card as thanks for their present.

This is why autists can't get along. Nothing that you've show makes this guy out to be anything other than just another autist who doesn't know how to express himself Some guy thinks he's being helpful, but instead he comes off as too demanding, and ends up get screwed over because you've built this image in your head of a complete asshole. Even if he is, christmas is the time of acceptance and charity, gift to him as you would yourself.

How fast and reliable Amiami backorders generally are? One item I got changed into that status, and it says on the item page that it'll be 1-2 weeks if they can get any more stock.

For Everyone Worried About Initials Being Posted:

You are not required to post your giftee's initials

Some people like to do it, SOME.

Many just focus on the gifts, you just don't see them, so it seems like they don't exist

They do

There are about 450 people in this SS, a majority of people have not been mentioned with initials

Calm down.

Handmades: Shiori Misaka from Kanon. If you could knit her shawl, or make an effort to, that in itself would make my Christmas. If not, however, anything handmade is always nice. Plushes, Cookies, scarves, playlists, etc.
Merchandise (excluding figures, shirts, pants and hats): DVDs, soundtracks, posters, etc. from Preferred Shows. Subtitles for DVDs and frames for posters would be cool too.


Preferred Shows: Clannad (After Story), Ichigo Mashimaro, Isshuukan Friends, Nagi No Asukara, Nichijou, Non Non Biyori, Sakurasou, Haruhi, Working!, Yowapeda, Yuyushike, Yuru Yuri, Zvezda


I was going to make the shawl but time is not on my side this year. I have lost of work around new england this year. so I just made and bought you stuff. Ill be delivering it by hand since I live in the greater boston area.

The one I talked to a bit before? Hello again.
Thanks, I'm feeling better, not as in completely better maybe, but a hell of a lot better. It's all mainly 3DPD and IRL shit of the sort though, so I dunno if it's even spoiler-appropriate.
And yeah, I really do like Yo-kai Watch a lot but I also like traps and Killua a lot too. It motivated me to start studying my kana finally and try to look for more formal lessons. And a lot of other good stuff, but I don't wanna ramble on too much. Finally gathering the courage to have gone to counseling and then have the English game come out the next day probably helped my mood a lot, I haven't broken down in at least a couple weeks or so now. I'm nowhere near caught up with the anime yet though.
I dunno what else to say, but thanks again.

>>133826359
if I had more time I would of went all in on the shawl but alas it is not in the cards.

hopefully the nice present and shit I made will suffice.

TF of NY, all of your gifts have arrived, but I'm making you some neat stuff, so I'll be sending out within the week after Christmas.

DF of CA, D of MI, M of NH Your cards will be out soon

Thanksgiving break is finally here but I never really considered what I should be doing for cards. I did not sign up for gifts. Do write something nice and send it with christmas card? Can I just print out some fanart of their waifu or should I attempt to draw/trace something and make it christmas related?

see >>133806303
>>
>>133827189
you can do whatever you want, but drawing something by hand and writing something nice is always best.
>>
>>133827189
Do you even read the threads? Don't just buy some cards and write nice messages; don't just print something out and write a message on that either.

Refer to >>133806303. Do something nice and more heartfelt. If you have to resort to tracing, that's fine as well. If you're shit at drawing, just give it your best and it'll show. Try to personalize it and put effort into making your cards. Your anons will appreciate it. Just don't buy something and mail it off thinking that counts. Because it doesn't.

From last year when I made some hats, to watching scarfanon working year after year; there's no doubt this is the best time of the year.

Too bad the archive went down, so people can't see if their gift got posted. Let's hope someone makes a new one soon.

So, since I have stuff stuck in customs, what should I do? It's been roughly 10 days. Do I call and ask for... whatever? It's in my country but I can't physically visit the place it's at.

He didn't just fuck over santas by advertising to crossboard grinches.
He also assigned everyone in card bracket to everyone signed up so even if you sent ten cards you wouldn't receive back more than two.

Recently I've been seeing anons announce that their new like it's no big deal.
Whatever happened to "lurk more"? Or even not showing your newness?

Thats what I mean by mixed results. I got all 20 I signed up for, and others got delivered to as well.

But then you have you poor bastards. Im glad /ss/ has evolved.

I honestly wouldn't mind running /ss/ or V/a/lentines at least once. It can't be that hard. R-right?

Time to be excited.

TF from TN. I'm the same anon as last time since I know you said you were waiting on a second anon. Your gifts have just begun shipment to me. Expedited.

GA from NJ I have all your main gifts.

Will be shipping both out at the same time for convenience so probably expect them in December.

You may have better luck since its the holidays and packages move quicker, but who knows.

I probably couldn't. I can barely get my videos in on time for Christm/a/s and V/a/lentines, much less run the event.

Wait...her?

incase people are waiting to hear things:
Serg of Russia - Gift one arrived, gift 2 should be ready by next wednesday. I'll send tracking details through email.
BG of NL, LT of IL US and JL of Alberta, your cards will be sent out when I send out my gifts, which will hopefully be the end of next week.
>>
>>133832476

MH of CT, your coal should be coming in tomorrow.
I'll maybe be able to send it out this week. If not, next week.

ABW of PA
GG of TX
My badly handdrawn cards will be done at some point and will be sent out the same time I send the gifts.

Well his /ss/ was a rush job since the previous Santa never showed. I think the previous one was someone named Sandy. When Sandy never showed he stepped in and put it together in 2 weeks. With that short time it's no wonder there were mistakes made. But at least we had a /ss/ that year.

Start looking for the first thread in late August. If that's too early there will definitely be threads in mid September. Also look out for the v/a/lentine card threads that will start up in January.

>>133834219
I get what you mean. Someone posted my initials and location a few weeks ago but someone else replied. Didn't see the thread until it was archived too. Kinda apprehensive considering that the giftee said that they were gonna show up at their assignment's house.
>>
>>133834177
I feel this way every year, but to a far lesser extent. There's nothing wrong grammitcally or anything but I'll always read it a week later and kick myself for not including something, putting down too much stuff, or sounding too robotic and boring.

Oh, great. Sorry, I was just getting paranoid. Most of your gifts are here. I'll send them out sometime after the 25th. I'll give you the tracking number through santa.
You may get two seperate packages. I'm still waiting on something, because I accidentally chose SAL like an idiot.

Also you have good taste. It was fun buying your things, so thank you.

For some reason when i read the FAQ i thought i had until november 30th to apply. and so i waited to make sure i'd have enough extra money to spend on a gift before applying. unfortunately by the time i saved enough and decided to apply it was too late.

I guess i can just use the windfall and buy a gift for myself. but that's not nearly as fun.
>>
>>133835822
Yeah, it was moved forward a week to allow more time for buying and shipping.
Hopefully next time they'll go with the earlier date from the get-go.
