Late gift exchange is now closed. If you are still wondering if you are too late to join. You are for sure now. But there is still some time for late cards! That's just over a week to sign up, don't procrastinate if you have been.

Late card signups have been opened for a little now. because nothing is quite like getting a card from ano- Santa for Christmas. Please fill out the form and send it off to me at [email protected], signups for cards end on the 30th, If I'm good assignments should be out by the 3rd.

Name:
Full Address:
Amount of cards:
International? (yes/no)
Information about yourself, this part is given to the people who are assigned to you. Feel free to include suggestions, lists, websites, or whatever:

Anything else you need me to know (sent only to me, also end of card form):

Lastly, I'm not associated with the on time exchanges. So make sure your questions go to the right people.

So lets have a Secret Santa thread. You aren't seriously still waiting on SAL are you?

It's okay, I forgive you.

Hopefully it isn't late for Christmas, I only just got the money for it.

How long does it usually take for international packages to ship? I'm starting to worry because gifts for my anon are scheduled to come to me at 10th december and I don't know if two weeks would be enough.
>>
>>133854772
Depends on where to where, but I'm 90% sure that will be late.
>>
>>133854772
That is going to be really, really tight. Your local post offices will not guarantee it unless you pay out the nose since other country's postal services are out of their control.

You should be stopping in now to find out what you need to do to make sure it arrives on time. If that puts it out of what you can afford, perhaps make something by hand now, send it off in a package and include a note that the "real" present will be forthcoming?

I really feel like it's a mistake to have the late cards end so late and not at the same time as the late gifts. That gives barely over a week before the "send by to reach before Christmas" date.

I assume anyone signing up for the late cards is going to spend the first weekend thereafter making their card, there will be no mini-gift with the card and then they will send it on the Monday to ensure timely arrival.

>>133857712
Getting a heartfelt "thank you" meant more to me last year than receiving a gift did.
so I signed up for three this year and have gone over budget by approximately $400 and have been hugely stressed that gifts won't arrive on time.

I'm trying to design a coffee mug, but I'm not sure if the image might be repeating itself. What do you guys think? This is just a test mug, if you listed spice and wolf as something you like don't look as you might spoil yourself.
>>
>>133861692
Artcow takes like a week for printing then another 2 for shipping.

One thing to keep in mind about mugs is picture placement. You usually want to be looking at the image from a normal point. So to the left or right on the handle depending on the person. That way you don't have to turn the mug so the handle faces away from you to see the image while using it. If it's a mug destined for pens I guess it's a non issue.

I would do two images on either side of the handle.
>>
>>133861692
walmart does mugs too
>>
>>133861938
That's true thanks for the advice. I wanted initially to do multiple images but for some reason it won't add more than one.
>>133862037
Thanks I'll look into it. I would like to have it on time to give for christmas. Sadly I haven't had much time to work on creative stuff.

For some of us, getting a Christmas present from an anon is the best part about Christmas. It may be the only present we get.
I give presents to my friends but they don't have their act together so I will get nothing back. Same with family, there is a "bring a gift get a gift" exchange, so I'll end up with a flashlight or bottle of wine, nothing personal or meaningful. /ss/ last year made it my first good Christmas in a long time, and I hope I can do that for someone else this year. I regularly look at my /ss/ cards for motivation during the year.
>>
I'll be sending out my cards either Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving.

One thing has always bothered me. Why do stares automatically go into Christmas mode a week before Halloween? It's like Thanksgiving is completely forgotten...
>>
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.

I ordered a keychain for my assignment a little over a week ago and got SAL but it hasn't left Nippon yet. Should I just wrap and send the main present or wait on the keychain?
>>
>>133871946
I'd wait a week and see if there's any progress. You still have plenty of time to send your gift.
>>
>>133869387
Because Thanksgiving isn't really anticipated and the only real money made from it is in food. Christmas makes money for everyone since people go all out with lights, decorations, presents, food, and cards. I can tolerate there being a Christmas aisle in November but shopping becomes insufferable once the Christmas music starts being played.
>>
>>133871946
Assuming you're in the US. There's about 3 weeks left to where you could send your gifts via usps standard post and still have it get there before christmas. After that you have to pay up for priority mail for it to get there in time.

So you could wait 2 weeks if you wanted and be safe.

Scammed might not be the right word. One year I got nothing, the last year I got well..basically garbage. One thing was broken, the other thing I already owned (The sender knew I owned it too, mentioned it in the letter and just laughed it off) and even if that wasn't an issue, it didn't fall into the price tier I was in (Was in 150-200 tier, the stuff I got came out to about 65-75).

I mean I know this isn't about getting stuff, it's about giving, but it's really disappointing, especially since it was right after getting nothing the prior year.

Aircushion packets are garbage and bad for the environment. They advertise it as environ friendly because it's better than styrofoam peanuts. They also pop and or tear and can damage your goods. Use newspaper. Easier to recycle. Smells better. Can't ever fail. And good for the environment. Reuse is better than recycle.

Also don't use USPS boxes unless you are shipping what weighs the equivalent of a brick in size. You can mail the same thing for $6 less usually using your own box.

Or do whatever you feel like.

I'm really worried I'm not going to be able to find a gift for my recipient in time, I've got till the 17th before it needs to be posted off but it's getting something good in before then. I've always been useless at Christmas shopping too.
>>
>>133883632
The only reason you won't find anything is because you're procrastinating and worrying about useless stuff.
Just look through the shops listed in the buyfag guide, like manda, and you'll surely find something nice.
If your guy just listed obscure stuff, ask him if there's anything newer he likes.
>>
Okay, this is my first time sending out cards, so I don't know how to do this.
Do I just stick them into an envelope and send them out as regular mail?
>>
>>133884363
Within your country - yes.

If outside your country, ask at the post office.

For example, in Canada:
- normal stamp within the country
- US stamp for Yankee mail
- International stamp for elsewhere

If they are not in the mail this week, or outside of your continent, you should ask to confirm that they will arrive before Christmas.

Do you try to buy as much stuff as you can so your anon has several things that can surprise him or do you spend money on a single, but expensive gift?

>>133885332
Depends on your bracket, what they want and how sure you are that they will like it.

It is all up to you anon! Ganbate!

Just a heads up to everyone sending stuff to Finland.

The postal strike here is still going, and warehouses are quickly filling up. No one can knows when it'll be settled. Parcel's will be delayed, no doubt. You should send your stuff as quickly as possible to avoid further delays. They are saying that they aim to deliver everything before Christmas, but I wouldn't take any risks
>>
>>133889286
Different messages. I even include a separate, short, hand-written letter.

I've gotten fewer cards than I signed up for the past three years.

To the anons who have grinched people before:
Why do you do it?
What's wrong with you?

>>133894141
Every year I have at least 1 card get sent back to me as "undeliverable." I always double check the address before sending cards, so any card grinching on my end is not on purpose.

I try to include something with the cards I give out. Last year I gave out a few art books. I had a great idea this year but if I don't receive them by Dec 4 that is my last date to ensure anon's in North America receive their cards before Christmas and thus their cards will have no gift.

Last year, I got an Amazon gift about mid-January with a pretty disappointing note in it. I was happy that I wasn't grinched, but at the same time, somewhat let down that their idea of a gift was shipping me some cheap anime-related item from Amazon almost a month after the fact. I was in the 25-50 tier. But I just tell myself that something came up which kept them from doing something nicer.

I still keep that Asuka hat displayed next to my figs though.

I got a few really nice cards, and was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of knowing my anon loved the gifts I sent them. So, essentially, it's not about the whole receiving thing, but knowing that you made some other anon's day [or season] that much better. And that's what is most important, I'd say. In an ideal world, that enough should keep people from grinching, but who am I fucking kidding.

>>133910085 here, I ended up ordering more, if for nothing else to show what you can get when you don't order from shitty american sites.

Final tally:
3 scale figure
2 prize figures
2 key chains

And not counting shipping I somehow managed to stay in bracket. Thank you based amiami and mandarake.

V from NH

Just ordered the second half of your stuff, you definitely have some interesting taste. Should be able to get it all to you by Christmas no problem

I pre-ordered kotobukiya's hestia, and regret it.
Do you think my anon would mind? He has fantastic taste, so I don't think he would like her

Or would one of you fags want to do a $70 gift exchange? I'll even throw in some chocolate.

I think I may just end up contacting amiami and canceling her, just have to pray they don't ban me.
>>
>>133911636
I heard they won't ban you until you have canceled 3-4 times.
>>
>>133911594
I never thought my santa would pop-up while I was still on!

I hope my taste didn't prove to be to much of a problem, I always worry that I am to specific by listing so many characters.

You didnt have to post on here, but I really appreciate that!

While I have you here, if your still on, can I ask you a question? Will you be wrapping the presents? I like to put them under the tree, but if they wont be wrapped in the box, I will just put the box under the tree until Christmas. No biggie!
>>
>>133856253

No problem man. Sorry I didn't include much in my tastes for what I'd like. But I'm sure you will pick something awesome out!
>>
>>133911805
You're probably right, Ive only cancelled once in the 5 years i've been buying from them.

Im just worried.

[/spoiler] VR from TX

Expect two things, one from the retailer and one from myself. I'll send out the retailer thing next week when I get paid and I'm working on the personal gift.

I feel you. I'm in a bit of a hard situation right now (not financially though) so I feel like spreading cheer will help while I'm feeling down.

Last year I got grinched after giving away some of my prized posessions, including a $200 mechanical keyboard and some really rare vinyl records.
Since I was expecting to get something (and waiting for multiple months for a regift, who also grinched) it really sucked. I'm not going to expect anything this year but I'd like to make it better for some anons, so I'm trying to get in contact with SpoonSanta and see if I can regift for people who get grinched.
>>
>>133914070
I included shipping cost in the total cost for my price bracket.
But not the shipping cost from my house to their house
Only The shipping cost of ordering something overseas.

JK from SG, I've ordered your gift already. Sorry I couldn't get you anything handmade, but I figured I'd screw it up anyway. Still planning to deliver on christmas morning!

I got my CD from Jebus but I'm not sure if it's like a card, intended to be opened and listened to/displayed for the whole season, or if gift rules apply and I should wait until Christmas to open it. Either way I'll probably wait a good while to open it, but I'm still curious.

IL of TW I have ordered the last bit of your present and should hopefully be able to ship by the end of this week.

I think that's the most fun part about cards. Anyone can write a sappy holiday message, it takes true conviction to put pencil to paper and do your best to draw someone's favourite character despite the quality, or lack thereof, it may come out with.

Last year I asked for some nice figurine of my waifu, without realizing that all the nice ones were over the price bracket I was in. It wasn't malicious, just an honest mistake.

Pretty sure if he's asking for a specific gift, he's done some research on where to get it and how much it costs, as opposed to a blanket statement of "a nice figure of my waifu".
>>
>>133934023
It's called price gouging because of not being in production anymore. When it was in production it would've cost within my price bracket.

But hey, knowing that I'm going to make my /ss/ really happy is worth it.

Maybe they signed up for multiple presents?
>>
what's best way to get the proper sized box you need with packing? I have 4 presents wrapped and don't want a box that's to big so stuff doesn't move around as much, most places only have single sized boxes though and I don't know where to get packing material
>>
>still havent gotten a box big enough to ship anons gifts
>still dont have gift wrap

It's called a POST OFFICE.

Explain

they only have like 5 boxes to choose from
>>
Lay them out how you are going to pack them. Then, get a tape measure and measure it. Go to the post office and get closest size above what you measured.

Just toss some newspaper in to fill in the empty space, or pick up some shit at the post office when you get a box

And candy of course.

Ask at supermarket if they have any spare boxes. Dig around in the cardboard recycling box.

Locate an appropriately-sized box genie and duel him for his boxes

From my experience, some people just splurge on others. An anon got me the Yui Hirasawa 1/8 that around that time costed $100. I was only in the $50 range.

I was fortunate all my stuff was from a store that sold stock immediately and didn't leave it open for others to take.

That's their flat rate boxes. They always have a large assortment of boxes in the back for larger shipments, along with packing materials.
>>
Speaking of shipping boxes.
I have 2 posters for my anon as well as the other stuff.
Shipping all of it together would mean using a huge box and having it mainly full of newspaper.

Should I get a extra tube to send the posters by themselves? But that would mean splitting the gift and I'd have to pay shipping for both of the packages.
>>
>>133935826
I suspect shipping a tube and a small box will be much easier than shipping a huge box. Just make sure to cover the ends well, I've had posters come in with the endcaps basically falling out.
