PostSubject: Hidden Holiday Hombrés 4000   Sun 1 Nov 2015 - 17:32

Hallowe'en's out the way, it's November, we're putting the tree up at work, we want enough time to organise this before we start buying and that, so I feel justified in bringing up the subject of...

Father Christmas  Father Christmas  Father Christmas Father Christmas  Father Christmas  Father Christmas
Father Christmas  Father Christmas GNamer's Father Christmas  Father Christmas
Star  Reindeer  Father Christmas Secret Santa Father Christmas  Reindeer  Star

Yeeeeah!
We had 11 people in 2013 and 9 people last year so by my estimations we should have at least 7 forumites keen to get secretly Santastic this year. Pretty much the same drill as previous years, hit me up with your address in a PM if you're interested and I'll add you to the list in this post.

The Rules


  • Everyone who wants to take part, PM me your request along with your address.
  • I'll pick names from a hat and PM people to let them know who they've got and where they live. This means the only people who'll see your address are me and whoever's sending you a present.
  • I'll draw names at 7pm UK time, the evening of Monday, 23rd of November, so there will be plenty of time to buy, wrap and post presents. It would suck if someone missed out and their present arrived in January.
  • No matter how early your present arrives, we all open them on December 25th and post our thanks/ pics/ disgust.
  • Limit of Ł15, not including postage.
  • I'm taking part! I'm not sitting out just because I'm organising, this is really fun.
  • NO DROPPING HINTS. We all know eachother well enough to pick presents. And if not- Poundland willy warmer!
  • Gifts must be physical, tangible things; no emailing download codes or adopting felines.
  • If you say you're taking part then don't post out your present you'll be totally ostracised from the gang.


Confirmed Santas

  • Drunkalilly
  • Masofdas
  • Balladeer
  • Andyman949
  • ZeroJones
  • Fastpie
  • JayMoyles
  • The Cappuccino Kid
  • Dead Lemon
  • Axis 100
  • Treesmurf
  • The Jaster


Fun fact: This was my 4,000th GNamer Post!

Congratulations Baby Brush God! It's far too bloody early for anything festive in me 'umble opinion (apart from mulled drinks because those are "da bomb"), but count me in as usual. Last year's Secret Santa ranked among the best gifts I've ever received*, so I have high hopes this year!

*No I'm not referring to the Sony goodies, Trolldyman949.

I'm not very good at knowing what to buy people and not as close knit as the rest of you here. Willing to take part if you'll allow me, will understand if not. Will let you regulars/long standing GNamer folk decide.

Last year I got my Santa what was effectively a joke present (then felt bad about it - sorry Mas). You'll be fine. Smile

I do wonder how Axis got on with those Xbox 360 games.

Well, there's our seven! I'll say this now because I end up reminding people every year: your name isn't added to the list in the first post until I receive your address.

I'd be up for taking part, on the understanding that we're all buying stuff for each other that we might actually like.

Don't just punt your old, unwanted tat onto me and call it 'Merry Christmas'.

Other than that, aye, looking forward to this! Father Christmas

Did you like the excellent Bioshock Infinite, or what you got from punting it as you got in a disc only bundle about week after I bought it for ya.

It's getting to the time of year where those two dormant emoticons can actually serve some purpose!

Not yet though. Not for me. Sulk

In fairness that was a good gift. I think I might have recieved that Secret Santa through the post on the same day as I bought it myself - it was just bad fortune, was all. That said, the disc I got cheap didn't work, so I kept the one you gave me. I've still got it at my parents house. Anyhoo, I got a couple of hours into it but just lost my way with it. Seemed all right, mind.

Just a reminder, folks, that I'm still waiting on two or three addresses!

That said, I might still have the Kid's from when I returned Thomas the Stank Engine.

I'll be using a different address from the one I used for the cr@p games thread - I'll send over a PM.

That's the first time I've broken my "nobody goes on the list without sending me their address" rule and it went wrong!

Omg guys! We've now got as many Santas as we had the first time around and if Jaster goes ahead and gets involved it'll be our biggest Secret Santa ever! Huzzah!
