PostSubject: Secret Santa Gift Exchange 2014!!    22nd November 2014, 3:24 pm



Welcome to Galaxy Cauldron's Secret Santa Gift Exchange!! This year I, Diana, will be hosting it =D


What is this Secret Santa Gifty Thingy?


Glad you asked random person! It's a cute little thing where people are paired together and then can exchange gifts!


But I don't live near anyone...


That's okay!! We allow both Digital(Online) gift exchanges as well as Postal (Real Life) gift exchanges!!!


When does this thing start and end?


The signups for the Secret Santa will be open from now until December 2nd at 11:59 AM EST!! People will then be paired up and I'll PM members who they got as well as the information they have provided! We ask that all Postal Gifts be sent out by December 18th , so they have to time arrive ^^

Are there any rules for this?


There isn't really any rules for the Digital Secret Santa, but the Postal one does have some rules!

For the Postal Secret Santa

❄ There is not a technical price limit for you to spend, since I can not control how much people decide to spend. However, please keep in mind that times are rough for a lot of people right now. So, if you want to spend a lot for your Secret Santa that's great! But please do not be disappointed if you don't receive a grand gift back.

❄ People will be paired randomly by me! So please be aware that any one person on this forum can read and get your address. I will be deleting the form after this ends, so no worries there, but in order to send a real life gift people kind of need your address xD So just a heads up!

❄ There is a chance you'll be paired with someone internationally! This information will be provided to you ^^


❄  You must take a picture of your package or postal slip and PM it to Diana as confirmation.

I realize some packages get lost in the mail, so this confirmation keeps you in the clear. It is encouraged to get tracking slip if possible.


But how is it kept secret?

Well, there will be a thread where the
receiver will be able to post what they got and the sender can then reveal themselves! For the Digital Secret Santa, please PM me your presents and I'll send them to your Secret Santa so that the surprise is not ruined =D

This sounds great! Where do I sign up?

Another great question, Random Person! Do NOT PM Diana! Instead use this link to sign up! http://goo.gl/forms/VO21kPL1Pe


I hope to see lots of participants for both Secret Santas =D

<3
Diana

The Festibration is the celebration we have every year for the winter holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. We keep it open and friendly to all the holidays ppl are celebrating around the world since we have a variety of ppl on the forum, and we play games, sing songs (over skype! xD), exchange gift and lots more!! It's really fun and one of the bigger celebrations the forum has each year Very Happy

I'm still on the fence in terms of participating. How'd it go other years, if nobody minds me asking?

Also, what if you order something from them online and have it sent directly to their house? Would you just send Diana a copy of the tracking number?

Hmmmm you can sign up for both I guess =o I was just going to do one though so some people dont have like 3 secret sanatas or something xDDD

And yes Cosmos, either a screenshot of it saying it's shipped or the tracking number would work. It's not to be creepy or anything, just that sometimes things get lost and I don't want to have to blame the senders for it ^^;;; so showing me it's shipped to them keeps you in the clear since I know you sent it xD

It's awesome! You should totally join. I missed it last year, but my Secret Santa from year one wrote me a nice little note and sent me a Sailor Venus mug. It was nice to get another gift and I had fun picking out something for my secret Santa. Because it was so much fun, each year I try to get something nice for at least one member of the forums in addition to the secret Santa.

You can send me a picture of what you sent as well if you'd like ^^ But since the person receiving it probably won't know your real name when they see who shipped it, it'll already be secret! And the person you sent the present to will post a picture of it on their own ^^ So you can, if you'd like to!, but it's not required! Just the tracking/shipping slip thing!

Hmmmm...I'd say the deadline for the digital gift December 23rd, since you just have to send me your digital gift so I can gift it to your Secret Santa for you (That way it stays secret =P) Unlike the physical gifts that need time to ship and such ^^

The Digital Secret Santa is just like a normal Secret Santa, but instead of physical gifts you give out a digital one! It can be a handmade comic strip, a drawing, a digital coloring, a video of their favorite characters/couples, etc etc ^^ Then once you've created your gift, you'll send a PM to me with either the link to your creation or you can use the [img] codes ^^ I'll then send it to your Secret Santa for you, this way it'll remain anonymous! Kinda ruins the surprise if you see "Diana has sent you a PM!!!" and it has the present in it xD

I hope this helped clear up a few confusions!!! I'm really excited about the amount of responses I've gotten after only two days =D

In the past, people have given avatars and sigs with their favorite characters or a manga coloring. If you're a writer, you could even do a short fanfic with their fav characters too. Smile
