Gifts are arriving, holiday cheer is in the air!
Chat with your giftees/secret santas!

>Grinched gift signup and check will be on January 15th, 2017, unless you guys decide otherwise.

I felt weird not putting a card in my actual gifts, so all my giftees are gonna get cards as well.

>mfw all my giftees have received their gifts already and I'm waiting for any updates on mine

I think I've only heard from one Santa so far and it's nerve wracking wondering if anything is going to arrive.
>>
>tfw I want to send gifts by tracking but it costs $50 compared to $12 untracked
I'm so sorry international giftees...
>>
>>9280558
I feel you. At least 2 of my giftees are getting stuff sent from Japan and I'm considering just sending the packages to their homes separately to save on shipping, because holy crap is it expensive.
>>
Found out what the problem was with the duplicate assignments and the 0s in the name. Yall are getting new assignment emails. The gift info mixed in with the card assignments due to recycled email template.
>>
Do not send out the cards untiI you get the second email the to you Non-international people.

KP, your items have arrived and I will be mailing them out ideally by Friday after my exams are done! Hope your holidays are going well!
>>
Still not sure what to do for card assignments. Asked about it in the last thread and didn't receive a reply. Do we make our own cards? Are we expected to send gifts to these people? Is it literally just a card? No clue.
>>
>>9280984
Don't overthink it. Its just a card. Make them if you want to.
>>
>>9280984
I think it's really up to you. You can buy a card, or a template and just draw it, put stickers on it, put a note that you hope that they have a nice holiday. It's basically there to make someone's holiday however you'd like.
>>
>>9280906
Good Lord. What countries is that between?
>>
>>9280558
I didn't want to risk it and send it anyways tracked. I hope my giftee is not going to be fucked by customs because of that. My country is having some weird shit going on with mail so I don't want it to be lost or atleast when it gets lost I can get some money back hopefully.
>>
KS from NZ! I sent your package yesterday, please email me [email protected] so I can give you the tracking number and some information about the package.
>>
>EK from NY
Please let me know if you got your gifts yesterday! I never did hear back from you if your USPS corrected address was right and I saw the package got delivered so please let me know!
>>
>just checked email and found corrected card list
>person I got the first time isn't there
>new person is utterly fantastic

I think I'll send a card to the old person I had just because I feel bad not sending one but ME from FL, you are so much like me that it's insane. I wish I had gotten you as a giftee! I'll try and include some tiny little gifts for you with my card. Gonna make you a husbando card and everything!
>>
I'm stressing out because my allocated gift-recievers asked for really specific fandom related things and I don't have time to get that shit shipped to me and then out again so I'm buying general nice things that I think they will like but they are just regular store bought things. stressing about letting you gulls down!
>>
>>9281176
Why not just have the things they actually wanted sent directly to them instead?
>>
>>9281176
There's an anon going out of their country during the deadline that discussed with their giftees whether they wanted gifts sent before or after their trip. If you don't have the time now just ask your giftees if they're okay with it taking longer so you can get them something they want.
>>
>>9281176
Seconding >>9281186 because that's what I did last year. I ordered stuff off eBay and Aliexpress and just had it shipped straight to my giftees. This year I just happened to get lucky and had some stuff already on hand and got faster Taobao shipping.
>>
>>9280551
I feel the same way. My gift has been delivered, yet I still don't have a clue wether it was received and liked. No news from my santa, either...
>>
>>9281220
I got literally no news from the person I sent a gift to last year. Not even an "I got your gift!" Post. Fucking nothing. It looked like she had a lot of matches and did that to all of them too. Still makes me a little salty.
>>
tfw I was an asshole and didn't post last year because I was a lurker

Oh gosh I'm glad you got it alright! I was a little worried there because USPS kept auto-correcting it. Glad you loved your gifts especially the bracelet since it was the most mahou shoujo thing I could find and yesI'llbeyourfriendbutI'manawfulpenpal.

>>9281220
>>9281237
Well with the grinch check this year you're sort of required to say "Hey here's my stuff" because you have to post a photo and the gift ID, don't you?

I would think any giftee that was silent on their stuff and never said what they got or anything should count towards the grinch check, honestly. If Santas should be accountable for sending the gifts and providing proof of sending then giftees should be accountable for posting that they received the gifts and proof of receiving.

I know it's all about the season of giving but to me it's a lot worse to not hear anything from the person you gave to than it would be for me not to receive anything in return. It takes so little effort to just snap a photo or even leave a note saying "__ from __ I got your package, thanks!"

JM from QC, ME from FL, YL from AB, and BD from UK:

All your presents are ready! Sorry for the wait, a lot of things has been happening IRL and I've been super busy with work.
I'm just waiting to meet with someone local to grab ME's present this Saturday.
They should be out by mid next week at latest, and they should all arrive before Christmas.

BD I'll be paying for faster shipping so it should arrive within 7 business days too, even though you're halfway across the world.

I'll post a throwaway after I mail them if you girls are interested in tracking numbers!

Also any of you girls have allergies/food dislikes?
I'm throwing in some snacks I personally like but let me know if there's anything I should exclude.
>>
>>9281908
oh and any of you gulls like sailor moon stuff?
if so what's your favourite sailor senshi?
not guaranteed to be a part of your present, just wondering.

SH, LT, KB, AH from Australia. I have finished your cards and will be posting them out on Monday, pending level of exhaustion from work.

JM from Quebec and NS from Alberta, I want to go a little artistically overboard with your cards and I'm wondering if you could give me a little direction?

JM- do you have a favourite girl from Madoka, or a favourite weapon, item (like the cards, the book, etc), or person from card captor?

NS - do you also have a favourite girl from Madoka, or a character from Overwatch?

I figured since the card assignments came with gift swap details attached I may as well use it to make the card fancy, time pending.
>>
>>9281957
Aw you don't have to! I should have your card sent out by Monday (trying not to go overboard with it since Christmas funds are low) but I will put my return address on the envelope just in case you want to send a card back.
>>
SJS from CA, I'm going to send out your gift in two parts if that's ok?
>>
>>9281908
BD here. m80 thanks for checking on the customs front. If it's marked as a gift with a value less than £34, then customs can't touch it.

I'm not allergic to anything, and Sailor Mercury is my homegirl.

Hooray, I'm so glad you like them!! Thanks for posting, and I can't wait to hear from you pen pal~

YL here! I have a mild allergy to eggs. Cookies and most things are okay, but danishes and mayo, etc are a no go. That being said, I have a christmas tradition of eggnog french toast, so I do have some epipens handy. Send me anything!

I love Pluto and Neptune as far as sailor senshis go. Out of the core group, I'm pretty fond of Mercury.
>>
>>9281908
Hi anon, I'm JM from QC. I might have already mentioned in my description but I don't have any allergies! I love snacks and am looking forward to it.

>>9282722
I'd say my favorite is Homura but I like the aesthetic of the items in the show more, so between a character vs a motif I'd prefer the latter. I really like the way the (egg shaped) soul gems look and the design of Homura's shield.

4231, I got your gift! The donut bracelet is amazing and takoyaki is my favorite umaibo flavor. Thank you!

FK from Denmark!!

Sorry for not posting sooner [after my initial post], but I am just waiting for the final gift to arrive on Tuesday and I will hopefully be able to send your gift out before the end of the week. Since you're quite far from me I will try and get tracking sent to Santa's Seagull to pass to you.

BB from WV and BD from U.K.!! I just got home so I will be sending your gifts tomorrow! Please expect them within the next two weeks and I hope you like them!

Yup totally cool with it apart from the orthodox Jewish but they're a minority as well. Most of the country celebrates other "Christian" (Well, Christian/Pagan origin not very religious.) holidays like new years eve (We have a big Russian population that celebrates novy god.), valentines day and even halloween has gained some steam over the past few years. Only cities with a bigger Christian population like Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv and Nazareth will have actual activities going on though.
>>
>>9282722
NS here, I like all the girls but my favourites would be Madoka/ Godoka and Sayaka. My favourite Overwatch characters are Roadhog and Pachimari. I would totally love if you make some funny or wacky art, have fun with it! I'm sure I'll love whatever you make!

Anais from Texas and HNC from Philly: I am waiting for one of each of your gifts to arrive in the mail (which should be by this week) and because they are tiny parts of the gift, I will give them until the 20th to arrive because I will be shipping out on the 21st no matter what! All other parts of your gifts have been wrapped and I am working on your cards right now! ^^ Let me know if you guys have any questions or concerns~
>>
CD in UK, I shipped your gift today! The post office says that it should take 4-6 business days but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a little slower due to traffic. I hope it get there safely! Also the gift ID is on the back and side of the parcel.
>>
>>9283825
And a (You) for you anon. My address will be on the back in case Auspost does some weird stuff.

>Ordered something off ebay
>Free postage "NICE"
>It gets posted out
>Looks at tracking
>HOW AUSPOST???

So basically the package got sent all the way to where I am. Auspost never left me a card, and it got sent all the way back to the sender from the other side of the country.

Don't worry about it Anon, people are pretty intolerant but not when it comes to fun holidays. Don't get me started on how fucked up it is that we only have public transport 5 days of the week because of religious stuff.

Unrelated, SG crafter and SH Larper from the UK I just sent out your parcels! It's by air mail so hopefully it'll be with you fast. I added a ingredients list for the sweets I sent but if you have any questions about things feel free to ask, I'll be lurking this thread for a while.

Yeah that's exactly how it is, there are mini-taxis that have room for about 8 people and run a set route and cost less then a actual taxi (but three times more then a normal bus... and they don't go everywhere.) People that are fully observant really can't do anything, you can't even tear toilet paper because some rabbi said it counts as work, but most people aren't fully religious and just observe part of it (So the majority of people keep kosher to some degree, and won't drive/watch TV/use the computer but they will turn on lights and such.) Sadly even if you want to work on shabbat you usually can't. The country enforces a extra tax on any place that's open (Not including emergency services of course.) so most stores prefer not to open even if they aren't in a very religious place like Tel Aviv. From what I know about 70% of the people here are at least somewhat religious, and the religious parties are pretty big in the government so these kind of things aren't going to change any time soon.
At least we have great holiday foods.

EM from SC, your main gift finally shipped on Dec. 9. Hoping it gets here by the end of the week. I've wrapped up your other smaller goodies and everything will go in the mail as soon as that last gift has arrived.

JD from GA, I've had all your stuff for a few days but I was hoping to send both gifts out at the same time. I've been waiting for my other Santa's gift for so long that I'm just going to package up your stuff tonight and ship it out. I'll give you tracking info tomorrow if you want it.
>>
Any one else low-key lurking by their mail boxes waiting for any sign of their Santa gifts?
I suddenly have a real appreciation for those that go to the extent of getting tracking sent to their giftees because it's surprisingly difficult to sit here and wait knowing something is arriving but not knowing when.

Do what I did and just name them and ask if they got their gifts alright. If they're still silent after that well... I stand by anon who said not posting you got gifts should count against you in the grinch check.

>last heard from one Santa two weeks ago that gift was sent

Maybe this is a sign to get a higher bracket for Valentines/White Day or something.

KG from WA I also got your gift today too! Your note was hilarious and your presents fit perfectly with my aesthetic so no worries there! The skirt is cute af, the tights are gorgeous and the flower crowns/hat are things I can incorporate into casual wear(but honestly the skirt is basically my favourite thing ever). Thank you! Gift id is 6123.

Is it too early to post suggestions about next years secret santa? aside from the obvious (being organized a month or two earlier), I would really appreciate it that if our santas are from a different price bracket we get alerted? I'm trying not to sound grinchy here, honest, and I do love my gifts (and i'm in it for the gifting mostly) but it does sour the experience a bit when you were expecting a $30-40 or even $50+ gift and get a gift in the $15 range. I wouldn't have minded in the slightest if I had been alerted when we were given assignments, but there was a moment of "...oh" when I received my gift.
>>
>>9288273
Huh? You should receive gifts in the same price brackets you agreed to send out, shouldn't you?
>>
>>9288273
>>9288281
Yeah, you are supposed to be matched by price bracket ie both you and your ss should be spending the same amount.

Did you get something that seems cheap or did your gifter mention something about the price etc?
>>
>>9287990
Yay I'm so happy you liked it!! Also thanks for framing the card in the photo so No one can see how off center it printed haha
>>
>>9288290
I believe a couple threads ago santa anon or santas helper mentioned some price brackets had uneven numbers of people or people only doing domestic so there weren't perfect matches?
I'm assuming that's what happened, otherwise my secret santa assumed I don't know what taobao/aliexspress stuff looks like.
>>
>>9288316
you should post and shame if you feel grinched. or check with santa-anon first.
>>
>>9288001
I'm so glad you liked everything!
>>
>>9288346
Isn't it a bit earlier to claim being grinched? I mean they have until January 15th.
>>
>>9288721
anon was referencing the other anon receiving a gift well below their price bracket as grinching
>>
>>9288316
They did say that the higher brackets were uneven but you should have been compensated with extra gifts to equal your bracket aka $35 bracket gets you $15 + $20 gift or so. (Too lazy to math so I picked an easy number)

If this happened to anon I can see why they'd be disappointed if they expected a higher tier in return to their higher tier but there wasn't really much to be done about it since you can't produce high tier Santas out of thin air.
>>
>>9288144
I'm really excited! Thank you so much anon!

JM from California.

I've been watching the tracking on your package and it seems to have been stuck in one place for a couple days now. I'll keep an eye on it in case I need to call USPS/Canada Post and start asking questions.

Just wanted to give you an update
>>
>>9288273
Are you sure that your giftee is completely done with your present? You might be getting something more too to make up that price difference. I mean, I'm at the $20-30 but I'm not getting my giftees one item

JM from QC, ME from FL, YL from AB, and BD from UK:

These babies are ready to go to the post office today!
I was up until 5am last night packing them all securely, so I have no doubts that they'll arrive safely.

Despite my earlier dilemma of online shopping limitations, I actually think I did really well on all of your gifts.
I'm super excited & pretty confident that you guys will like your gifts!
(Also I overspent by like couple hundred dollars for everyone lol).

I forgot to mention price bracket inside the gift so I did make a small note on the outside of the package about which brackets you belonged to.
I would appreciate it if you would let me know when you receive it!

BD: I accidentally wrote a long letter for you, oops. I started rambling without realizing.

BB of WV, JF of NC and ERD of IL

I sent your gifts but forgot to put the ID number in it. Please email the throwaway to get the ID and the Tracking number.

Maybe also post proof that you are that gull? Address or full name would work.

Holy shit. The size of those boxes. And overspent by hundreds? I wish I was your giftee.

Yep, that description is the one I gave.
I'll leave the package for now until we/you get an update from santa anon (if you haven't already, you should message santa's helper anon too since they seem to be more available)

>>9288273
Depending on who you are, I may have assigned you an extra Santa in a lower price bracket. I haven't check my email as yet if you've emailed me.

The only changes in gift I've made is lowered one person's $50 gift assigment or did not assign the maximum amount of gifts.

However I do welcome any suggestions for next year. I want to be Seagull Santa next year and take over from the start rather than just help out after the fact as well as start accepting applications early October.

If anyone wants to help out next year, please let me know. Someone who has experience with or Access. I'll make more detailed post at a later time about this matter.
>>
>>9289620
Hey, just wanna say that I appreciate you taking on the workload

>>9289620
Seconding this, thanks for your continued help and support! I like the idea of starting early next year, then I can watch auctions and sites for the perfect items.

>>
>>9289620
I 100% support you being Seagull Santa next year and the extra layer of protection in giftee's being required to post proof of gift receiving since a couple so far have been MIA despite having their gifts delivered days prior.

But seriously, thank you for everything this year since original Santa has seemed to have vanished (which I don't hold against them since they only had days off to do this anyway) but I'm really excited that you're volunteering to take over entirely next year.

I'm actually in college for Office Administration and we, ironically, just covered Access a few weeks ago so I do have some basic knowledge on the functions and how to make tables and queries.

I won't fully say I'll volunteer to help the entire event since that's a long way away and you're going to post more detailed info later but for right now consider me interested and willing to offer my time to help at least temporarily during next year's event. Dropping my name as well so you'll have my contact info just in case, I'm JF from NC.
>>
Some of my giftees also haven't posted, but I think they might just be waiting until Christmas day to open. Just saying.
>>
>>9289872
I understand wanting to wait but at the very least they could drop a "Hey, got your gift #___, I'll open it on Christmas!" instead of the multiple radio silences anons have gotten where they don't even know if their gifts arrived safely.
>>
>>9289887
What if the number is inside the gift?
>>
I don't wanna seem paranoid, but I haven't heard from my santa since the very first thread, and I'm just hoping everything's going good for them! It turns out there was another gull with my initials in the same country as me, so I'm a little worried that maybe that was their santa and that mine hasn't said anything at all....

So just to check, if the santa for KB from Aus (VIC, not the WA one!!) is out there, let me know! I just get worried very easily haha.
>>
>>9289892
That might happen as well but from what I've seen so far 99% of the numbers have been written on pieces of paper stuck to the gifts or tucked in the card that came in the gift. And for anons who are spending their purchases direct to their giftees they usually give a heads up to expect something from #___ in the mail.
>>
>>9289892
>>9289905
Forgot to add as well it's just as easy to swap the number out for the name on the return address like "Hey XX from YY.."
>>
>>9289778
Please don't insult Seagull Santa, without them, the gift matches would have gone out even later.

Thank you' Seagull Santa for starting it this year. I would not have helped out at all if nobody took the intial charge.

Seriously though, are any of your guys' bfs pissed at you for giving out your address to random strangers? Cuz mine is.

>>
>>9291423
Just don't tell him you were grinched. After the grinch check January 15th wasn't there a plan to send gifts to make up for anyone who got screwed (sorry I can't remember whether secret santa or santa'a helper offered to do that)? So you'll be fine as long as that's still going to happen.

My boyfriend was just confused, not pissed also.

>>9291459
That's a good plan. I'm sure he'll forget about it eventually anyway lol
>>9291491
He wasn't pissed like "wow ur dumb i hate u bitch" but more like "why did you do that, you put yourself in danger, you need to be more careful". I guess that it is slightly controlling but I think he is actually concerned that something bad will happen, not just trying to ruin my fun. Also he lives with me so he is concerned about himself as well haha. He's just a paranoid dude. And i mean it does go against everything we were taught as kids to not give your address to strangers. But dammit I wanna give and get cgl presents! I'll probably invest in a PO box sometime in the near future.

Eh don't worry about it.

Nothing has happened to me yet, same with some self post pics for China-fash reviews. Just don't make enemies/do lolcow-tier stuff with your email/address connected to you and you'll be fine. Worst I've ever had happen in 5+ years is someone posting a photo from my old Cosplay.com account back in the old wild west days of drama topics 24/7.

tl;dr you'll be fine as long as you don't flaunt your private info. Only people that need to worry are cows and trips who paint targets on themselves.

Your bf is acting like your mom. Tell him to stfu, you should be old enough to decide if it is safe or not. We also live in a world where we have accepted that the internet is actually full of people who are just like us and not people who are going to kill you. By his logic you should never use uber, as it is going into a stranger's car and telling them what could be your home/work address. Also something our parents said not to do, yet tons of people do it now with current tech.

It did indeed arrive safely! The address didn't seem to be a problem. Thank you SO MUCH, this is such a great gift! I love all of it! Also I tried the Vegemite, it was unusual at first but I actually like it! I had it plain on toast, and also made a sandwich with Vegemite, havarti cheese, and salami, and it was super delicious.

Also funny story, I read the card to my family and my mom is like "HOW DOES SHE KNOW YOU ARE SALTY?! HOW DID SHE FIND OUT?" I laughed pretty good.

Just an update for my giftees

ASH from CT, I have shipped your gift two days ago, and it should arrive next week sometime! The post office said 5-7 business days, but I know it can be slower with the rush. Let me know if you want the tracking number, and I can drop an email address for you.

EM from UK, my tracking info says that your package was delivered a few days ago. I hope all is well and it got to you alright!

CD from UK, just in case you missed my earlier post I have also mailed your package last week and it should arrive this week!

SH from NSW, the item I was originally going to send you didn't work out, but I have something on the way for you! You'll be getting 2 packages, one from an Etsy seller and then an envelope from me. I'll have the gift ID on both so there is so no confusion.

GR from IL, I am still waiting for your items to arrive from Japan. Hopefully they will be here any day now, unfortunately I think they got slowed down in customs. Anyways, is it alright if your gift is not there in time for Christmas? If not, I'll send you something else!
>>
>>9292150
Oh man I had no idea, I just figured 1 package = 1 slice of bread. It wasn't too overpowering though, but thank you for the wisdom!
>>
>>9292160
For next time!!

I'm excited about my gift. Been waiting for an update post but it should be here soon!!!
>>
>>9291419
Hey I emailed about not receiving my card people, should I email you again?

NY anon, I just wanted to let you know I got your card in the mail. I actually hoard stickers so it was sweet to find a pack in the card. Thanks a lot and happy holidays to you too!
>>
Seeing people post cards, I signed up for gifts and cards, but I never got an e-mail about cards [just the gift]. Should I get in contact with Santa people as I don't want anyone who is expecting cards to get grinched?
>>
>>9292399
yeah Ditto, I got the email about the gifts, but not cards. I signed up for both too.

Honestly probably too late to sign up for cards though.
>>
>>9292399
>>9292459
If you guys are outside of Murrica or shipping internationally then you won't have cards yet because Santa's Helper has matched them yet, it was mentioned in the last thread. If not good luck to you. I would like to send some soon as well!
>>
>>9292465
*hasn't matched them.

Whoops not enough sleep I guess.
>>
>>9292146
I'm glad you enjoyed it! Also, as >>9292150 said. That is a mighty amount of Vegemite! I'm surprised you could handle such a large serving! Generally one pack should be for 2-3 slices of bread as shown in >>9292204

JM, your gift was amazing, I can't thank you enough either. I must admit I regret putting no handmade! I actually have something of yours favourited on Etsy. (I went back and saved the shop too). The bows and necklace that were handmade are so lovely and the necklaces matches so incredibly well with the dress!! I was ridiculously happy with that, haha. The vintage items are wonderful too and the tea smells nice! Thank you again so much. I loved it all.

Everything is made so well, especially the chiffon bows. it's almost hard to believe that they're handmade! I'm actually so happy about everything, you really took my description into consideration. You're card was super cute too!

So glad you liked everything! You could probably tell from what I wrote that I was a little nervous about the no handmade, but I'm happy it turned out. And how cool is it that two gifts from separate anons go together perfectly!

>>9293553
I'm glad you like everything and it matches your tastes! Also I forgot if I already mentioned in the card but a bunch of stuff is removable from various accessories (eg. the chiffon bow on the comb) so you can mix and match a little. I wasn't sure if I should have thrown in some cute stuff too in retrospect but if this gives you the jumpstart you need for your gothic wardrobe, then I'm happy!

JD! your gift arrived today! thank you very much, i wish this picture could accurately grab the details of the items. i enjoy how you layered components on the clockwork bird ring so that, peering into it, it looks like there is more machinery in there.

Santa HOLY MOLY!! I was so set on just reading the card and waiting until Christmas but after the line about BTSSB, I couldn't resist. I never expected all of this and I'm still overwhelmed.

You mentioned gloves in your wishlist and i saw that pair when browsing closet child for my other giftee and I just couldn't pass them up, since they matched your color scheme and fav brands. I'm so glad you liked everything !!

I wasn't able to participate in the Secret Santa this year, but I can help out after the 15th to help send gifts to people who get grinched. If one of the people is into Pokemon cards, I can send out two gifts. Otherwise I've got a cute sweater I can buy some accessories for to gift out. (I've never worn it. It's sat unused in my closet.)

So I think I may have an issue with card assignments. I replied to the initial email about how many cards I could send, but I never got an email listing adressees. I figured I just got lost in the confusion between seagull Santa and Santa's helpers. But I just received a card in the mail and now I'm concerned that I actually was assigned some gulls for cards. I don't want to Grinch anyone. Santa's helpers, do you have a contact email so I can sort this out? Thanks.

EM from SC, sorry for the delay, I opened your package since the mixup was addressed. I noticed that the top of the candy package had opened somehow, but it didn't damage anything inside or burst all over the place, so it's fine! Everything is great, I love all the bird stuff - the seagull earrings especially. I was amazed that you added some AP jewelry too. Since the plate came with a hanger, I'm going to try to find somewhere in my kitchen to display it. Thank you!

either you are international or I have not found enough people for you to be assigned to or assigned for me to be able to tell you what your assignments are. You got a card because someone in your country could only send a card nationally.

Either way, please consider the card assignments to be New Year Cards. I still do not have a solid eta on the card assignments. I can only say perhaps on Christmas.

Some of you emailed me tracking numbers to be sent out. I will relay the message shortly.

Well we had almost 100 people get involved this year which is twice as much from last year. Hopefully it'll pick up closer to Christmas or just after, depending on how busy everyone is.

If we do White Day, definitely go for that. It's always more intimate with a lot of people spent out from Christmas and you can easily use the Grinch list and apply it to the White Day sign ups to weed people out as well.

I checked the tracking on one of them and it should be there before christmas day. That one in particular I am happy about because it turned out we were mutual giftees, and I hope that particular santa wants to be friends. I'll be sending a thank you letter to each of my santas after christmas has settled down.

Both of the gifts I received were absolutely stellar. I signed up not expecting much at all in return, so to have received such thoughtful gifts has been so lovely. One of my santas got me a make up palette I was going to buy for myself for christmas that I didn't even ask for! I will definitely be participating next year, maybe even to do more gifts.

i'm so glad your gifts arrived safely!! (and relieved that the brand stuff is ok, I'm a bit of an oblivious non-lolita)
I hope you guys have a swell christmas!
>>
>>9294672
what about pooling together all the confirmed gifter/giftees from all the WDs and SSs that we have data for?
>>
KM from NV, ERD fron IL, MO from AZ, and JS from CA:

still working on your presents. likely to mail this week, express shipping if possible. you are not forgotten: i will do what i can so all arrives by Saturday
>>
>>9294704
Holy shit you aren't a lolita? You did such a great job.
>>
>>9294732
Hey anon, I'm JS from CA. I'm actually going to be traveling for a few weeks (starting tomorrow), and putting a hold on my mail anyway, so you can save yourself some money and just ship my first class or priority because I won't be getting my mail for a few weeks anyway. Thanks for the update!
>>
>>9294743
aw man! all right. have good travels
>>
>>9294404
Me too. I easily spent over $100 on my gifts and whenever I posted, they never replied :/ I love shopping for others and don't want anything in return but I couldn't even get a reply when I asked questions or gave them heads-up about shipping.
>>
We might need a new thread soon
>>
>>9294730
That might work since to my knowledge we have last year's Christmas and maybe White Day to go off on? It would depend entirely on who's organizing and the amount of work they want to put into it though.

Personally, if it were me, I would limit the amount of gifts/cards and require everyone over a certain price tier to provide tracking or proof of shipment, no exceptions, to prevent both gift-hoarding and grinching.
>>
>>9294743
actually this means a specific thing i had wanted to get you which would not arrive in time can be gotten. so, i hope you will enjoy and feel free to post the giftpic in the mail thread if the SS threads are not being made anymore, i will be checking on it.

LD from Ontario here. No worries, I'm in no rush! :)
>>
Just received this today, no ID number, but am assuming secret Santa due to contents. 3 very cute, but very small cookie cutters. 2 are goats, and ones a shepherd (i think).
I'm wondering if its like 1 of 2 thing because No ID, and they left a tax invoice in the box.

Still cute, thanks Travis (thats like the only name on the box)
>>
>>9294835
Are you sure that's not a card assignment? The cards didn't get IDs assigned to them.
>>
>>9294846
Theres no card, just a message written on the paper that came from the store. It was shipped from an online store directly.
>>
>>9294857
Oh huh, weird. What bracket did you sign up for?
>>
>>9294860
10 - 15.
According to the invoice, its about 9usd.
>>
>>9294734
Thank you! It was exciting ordering brand, and I'm glad I learnt how for future gift exchanges.
>>
>>9294862
Maybe since it's under the bracket value, your card and ID# will come separately later on. Or someone that's not your SS might have bought it for you
>>
>>9294670
Someone's left without Santa this year, so I'm sending a gift to them. It's not a match really as it doesn't work both ways.
>>
>>9294778
I did up a bunch of metal gear cards and the printers gave me a bunch extra. I will totally send you or any other gull who'd like one one! Lemme get a throw away email to send addresses to and I'll try to have them out before I leave for t the weekend
>>
>>9294880
That's so nice of you, anon!

Thank you so much, I love the gifts! The little octopus necklace is perfect- from one cephalopod lover to another, thank you! The sewing kit is super convenient too, and I love the stickers and cute origami gull. Hope your Santa showers you with gifts!

Throwaway in the name field ayy.
>>
>>9294759
I'm not sure about tracking (i did a few $50+ tiers, and due to my own circumstances ended up having to track and from my country that cost $50 each alone, so i'd like to avoid that in the future) but I agree there should be a limit. I understand generous anons and such but I feel like 3 is a reasonable number. You could always just hardout spoil those three.

EM from the UK! I got your gift today!

>mfw the cardboard was folded in half and it was jammed into the mailbox.

No damage to the super cute print, though! I forgot to take a photo of everything before I pinned it up, etc, so I just gathered it all back together here.
I won't say how excited I was to do the little sticker doll, hueh. She's on my sewing machine now!

Thank you! Hopefully your gift from me arrives soon, too!

VH from UK, I just mailed out your gift yesterday - I doubt it'll arrive in time for Christmas but the royal mail might pull off a miracle.

This just came through yesterday and bless you anon you were far too sweet, you've made me a very happy girl. Thank you kindly and best wishes for Christmas and the new year.
>>
>>9295075
Yeah I definitely understand how expensive shipping can get which is why I suggested tracking or proof of shipment. Even if you don't send with tracking the postal service should give you a receipt when you buy regular shipping so you can use that as substitute. Just basically any proof of shipment.
>>
>ME of FL
Please let me know if you got my package with your card alright. It saw it got delivered on the 19th. I wasn't given an ID for it but your card is >>9290696 and should have come in a bubble mailer.
