It's almost December.
Have you send all your gifts and cards already?
Remember to not be late.

Do you guys use any registered letter form for the cards to track them and make sure that they arrived safely or do you not care?

Not anime

>>134007939
Nice meme

>>134007896
>registered
That costs so much.

It'd be cheaper to send as a piece of First-Class Large Envelope letter which has tracking for like $2.
>>
>>134007896
In my country normal letter (with priority at max etc.) costs about 1.25$.
Registered letter costs 5$ so if I have to send ten cards I prefer not spending 50$ on it.
>>
>still only have 2 of 4 cards done
I should probably start on this

I'm in the exact same situation. I'm averaging about 3 hours per card, not necessarily because they're complex, but I'm just a really slow artist.

It's £1 bong to send a card to the states or canada without tracking, not paying a penny more.

Re*** in Not, UK Waiting on last present before I send. If it's not here before the 5th, I'll send what I have and the last part later.

With the company I work with, I can ship for free with UPS. My SS has a PO box, which requires the recipients phone number to ship!

Wait since when does a PO box require a phone number to ship? I sent one last year without issue.

Now I am worried because my anon didnt even use a PO box, just a postal store that probably has some dumb rules

That's only for UPS. With FedEx, I can put my own number, that's how I'm going to ship this year.

3 weeks and my figure has not yet arrived. God damnit, Mandarake. How long does this usually take? I never ordered something before but my Santa wanted a figure.
>>
>>134016391
Anywhere from 1 week to 2 months with RSAL, from my experience. Last package took a month.
>>
>>134016415
Well then I hope it arrives rather soon. If they take another 5 weeks then Christmas will be over before the figure even gets here. And it still has to travel to my Santa too.

You might could deliver it general delivery to them? I mean, if it's a PO box then they would have to go to the post office to pick it up anyway.

I haven't tried that however.

Oh God is it too late. Mine are all international. I haven't even started my cards yet. I don't even know what to draw. I need to get some wrapping paper and chocolate too, and find a box, and bubblewrap too, I hope everything will fit. Does it take longer to ship parcels compared to letters? My cards will probably count as parcels because there's chocolate inside. I hope I have enough money for shipping, I almost drained my account because of the gifts I bought.

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.

Just waiting for late card assignments now.

Jebus, IL femanon here, I got your CD- thanks a lot! It was fun to listen to while driving home for Thanksgiving. Expect a thank you card in the mail some time soon. Looking forward to next year. Are you going to do something similar for V/a/lentines day?

I don't understand how this is an issue. How do you control for something like that? You can't.

Imagine finding out your friend is an anon through /ss/.
>>
>being a late gifter
Jeez these threads make me feel uncomfortable. At least I don't have to worry about arriving on time. I should probably get to work with the card too.
>>
>>134048466
First I have to imagine a friend.
>>
>>134048466
I got someone I already had three years ago last year, so I asked to switch. If someone notices that they got their friend, surely they'd do the same? I like the idea that your /ss/ is someone you don't know.
I still ended up sending the guy I switched a card, though.
>>
>want to make some fag on /a/ happy
>it turns out my anon hasn't received a Christmas gift ever
If it's really true google maps pretty much confirmed it makes this whole thing worth it.
>>
>>134048466
The idea of it just feels wrong.
Why not just give each other presents if you're already cringey fuckbuddies? To me this isn't about showing off goofy funny internet gifts to friends. This event is me giving gifts to friends.
>>
>>134036642
How does that make him a normalfag? The lengths you people go to misconstrue some of these terms, fucking hell.
>>
>>134048711
>This event is me giving gifts to friends.

Yeah, which is literally what he just described.
>>
>>134048725
Having friends seems like a sensible distinction. "I WATCH ANIME I'M SO QUIRKY" is a pretty stupid one. Have you seen pictures of the types that go to conventions? Exactly.

>>134048830
>Having friends seems like a sensible distinction.

You are disillusioned to the point where it's almost unbelievable. The only reason he brought it up is in relation to /ss/ in the first place. Next you'll tell me no one on /a/ actually has friend(s) because they don't actively talk about them. Cue the greentext responses to fit in.
>>
>>134049007
I don't have friends. Why do you think I do this?
Every real friend someone has is one less reason to participate in this.
>>
Thanks a lot to my card recipient for changing your address so late, I already sent the card and wasted so much effort for nothing.
>>
>>134049097
Stop projecting. Since when has /a/ culture revolved around who can and can't participate and for what reasons? The only people you should be concerned about are crossboarders or people off-site.

Not bait: Lion's share of people from even /a/ go to more than one board. How else do you think the references from one board spread?
>>
>>134049655
I don't doubt that but the way it was phrased sounded like you were fishing for replies.

Another reason why /ss/ attempts at dissuading crossboarders from participating never works. Anons have this bizarre perception that only the people that fit in their narrow criteria actually participate besides the grinches when that's rarely the case.

They could be renting.

I'm going to ruin this by mentioning vegemite paste made by mixing with butter/butter-like substances, usually with more butter than vegemite. Shit spreads far more evenly if pre-mixed so you don't get too much caught in air bubbles in the bread/cracker.

Also add cheese. If they still hate it after that they're faggots.

i specifically axed you guys to update my request and said you did but you didnt, and now i got the old request, which would be fine really except now i have two copies of the same fig. also she just sent it to me straight from the retailer, no wrappan paper or nuthin ;-;

The biggest AmiAmi box I have is too small for my anon's gifts. I have another smaller AmiAmi box that I could use as well to ship the gifts in two separate boxes. Would it be better to do that, or to just buy a bigger box at the post office and send it all in one?

Cards are out for:
VG from AZ
MP from NM
JA from Germany
JC from TX

And my gift is out to JB from Australia It's coming in two separate boxes because it would have cost insane amounts of money to send in one box. Still cost a fortune to send. Who knew shipping from Canada to Australia would be costly?

Most of your items are here, just waiting on one more. then it's just a matter of shipping them to you. hopefully they'll get there before you leave. If not I'll send them before you get back. Rest assured you will not be grinched.

Can I just email the organizers to email my S/a/ntas about something? I got two orders I made mixed up and it seems my biggest haul only just got shipped the other day because of backordered items, I'm afraid it might be late.

I have been shocked by how many grade 12 students can't send letters. I have had a few co-op for me over the last few years. What is wrong with the education system that people cannot meaningfully function in society with a high school education?

I spilled my spaghetti yesterday interacting with a cashier. She greeted me with a hello and I opened my mouth like I was about to say something but I just decided to smile awkwardly instead. After she was done giving me my change she handed me my plastic bag and she was like
"Here is your bag. And you are?"
"Good."
Then I accidentally dropped some of my coins on the ground and just left them there.

As I was walking out of the store I realized she was probably asking for my name.

My Anon used a nickname. I've posted the initials of their nickname a couple of times and never had a response back. I've also seen I think two other Anons post the same initials for gifts.

I'm beginning to think my Anon is a grinch.

I hope not. Their taste is good and I enjoyed choosing gifts.

Do the rest of you use your real first and last name when sending your cards/gifts?

>>134092866
Given that cards can take only a day to three to get across the country, many anons might send them a bit late. Plus, the mail service gets slow this time of year.

Honestly, don't worry. It's not like worrying will help anyway.

I did okay making 10, I rushed to have them done by thanksgiving though and I procrastinated a bit so it felt like I was hurrying at times, it's kind of at the peak where if you make any more you are putting less effort into each individual one and just trying to get them all done, but it's doable
