abs has been gracious and kind enough to play santa for years on the board and it's at tradition I don't want to fall by the wayside, ESPECIALLY in this dystopic waking nightmare of a year where we need all the joy and small pleasures we can get (in the form of secret boarder curated christmas packages). i haven't heard from her and we usually start earlier in November, so I hope she is well and just busy with life, and I will take the reins on organizing this fun activity this season.

please either PM me or email krixxkringle@gmail.com with your boarder/actual name and address, and i'll update this main OP with the list of boarders participating. in a week or so (i'll set a firm deadline TBA once this gets rolling) i will use a professional secret santa randomizing website to send you the boarder you'll be gifting (i'm doing it this way because I, Gay Santa, would also like to participate)

also at the end of February I WILL reveal the names of people who don't send out gifts. i will probably PM the boarder first to see what happened, but there are several boarders who have been screwed over the past couple of years by slackers who do the most evil thing I can think of and don't send out a secret santa gift. it makes me want to cry thinking of those boarders waiting on their stoops everyday for a package that never came. so i WILL expose you this time around if you do this heinous act. if some unforeseen thing comes up and you are unable to get a gift out, or you just have stage fright or anxiety about getting a gift, just please email me and I'll try to make other arrangements. anything is better than just ghosting on a poor soul.....

also i was thinking maybe we should limit it to boarders with >100 posts only. brand new boarders might be too much of a liability in case they decide to bounce with little risk of repercussion. but i will leave that up to board discussion...

oh and feel free to make posts in this thread about stuff you like, hobbies you do, genres of media you enjoy, etc...basically to make it easier for ur santa to buy you stuff! or don't give any hints at all if you want it to be a total surprise, up 2 U. but i know sometimes it can be hard if you get someone you really don't know anything at all about, so it might help them out !

I'm in.

tips for my secret santa (but by no means requirements):

I like movies, comics, cryptozoology (bigfoot, mothman & the like), working on personal development & exercise in the new year, museums, natural history, animals.

thank you RIXX (and abs from last year.) this is a lot of fun.

Yes please, Mr. Clause.


I like anything created by the gifter, or, if we don't live in the same place, something cheap that gives me a slight glimpse of the place you live.

I realize this may be a lot to ask of a gifter's time.

I'd rather get a postcard with a handwritten anecdote about someone you met on your commute that week or a ziploc baggie full of soil from your town than anything new from amazon or similar.

Am into: history, chocolate, weird sodas, postcards, plot heavy sci fi and fantasy, cats, the Grateful Dead and Phish

Less into: trinkets and stuff that will just clutter up my space

But some of my most enduring fav hpn Santa gifts have come from the latter category so just get whatever

also my t shirt size is L and i like t shirts plenty

I like books, movies, music, art, cooking, video games. I think I have pretty wide interests. I don't drink alcohol or coffee.

I like notes! A nice letter would be enough for me.

I've been so pleased by my requests for art the last couple years. Great gifts from birdsvsworms and pantsoclock.

If my gay santa wants to make me something or patronize one of the board artist, that'd be superb.

hi my name is blab. i like to play chess, write poems, and observe critters (like lizards and frogs). i really love art that my friends make. one thing i like to do is have friends doodle, create a lil sculpture, or write a poem or something when they're over to hang out. i like framing drawings that otherwise wouldn't be framed and put up. i've been reading lots of octavio paz poems and roberto bolaño novels. i'm not super into technology or video games (although i can appreciate both). my fiance and i have been getting into watching movies. my fav movie we watched recently would either be Sorry to Bother You or Robocop.

Would international boarders be too much of a liability too?

hmm I'm not sure. let's wait and see if we can get a couple more international boarders to sign up too, that way the shipping would be easier. i'll tentatively add you to the list and I'll see where we're at next Wednesday (the deadline I just set so we can get this ball rolling)

i don't think i've ever shipped anything from say NYC to the UK, do you know how much it'd cost at minimum?
