It's that time of year again! We did this last year and everyone seemed to have a good time with it, so let's do it again this year.

What is it?

It's a gift swap with your friends here on GTT!

How does it work?

On November 12th names will be randomly assigned, and participants will receive a PM from me with the name of the person they are sending a gift to. Read your person's posts (even the old ones), try to get to know them a bit and think of something they would like. You can buy it in person and pack it yourself, or order it online and have it shipped to them but please try to have your gift delivered by December 18th.

What are the rules, and how do I participate?

To participate, you must be a GTT member and have a minimum of 35 posts.

Post in this thread, and send a PM to me with Secret Santa in the subject line. You must do both of these things. In the body of the message, please include your name and the address you would like the gift you receive sent to. The entry period will close at midnight, Friday November 11th. Names will be randomly assigned the 12th and you will receive a PM with the name of your gift-ee. The person you are buying for may not be the person buying for you!

If you do not wish to receive food as a gift, please note that in your PM to me! Some members may have particular dietary restrictions or allergies and may not be able to enjoy certain food items.

There is no set spending limit, this is meant to be fun. Spend what you like.

If you can, note on the outside of your package that it's a GTT Secret Santa gift, just to prevent any possible confusion when it arrives. That may not be possible if you're shopping online, but please do if you can.

When your gift arrives, please post and let everyone know that it has arrived.

Make sure you PM me with your address! Can't do this without an address. I understand some folks don't want to give out their home address and that's okay- we can use a PO box. However, be aware that UPS and FedEx will not deliver to PO Boxes so you may be limiting your Santa's shipping options by doing so. Even if you participated last year, you must send me your address again this year. We did not retain any of that information.

This is meant to be fun, and not a burden on anyone. If for some reason you cannot follow through, please contact me as soon as possible. That information will stay with me, we just want to make sure everyone that sends a gift receives one.

If you have any questions, please post them in this thread.


Last year was pretty fun, and seeing the stuff people received was a blast. Folks really did get to know their recipients, gifts ranged from Bolt On Hooks to hand forged items to a whole lot of other stuff. Here's hoping for another good time this year, and with a group like this I'm sure it will be! :cheers:
