For our new members, in the past we have held a secret Santa gift exchange, and we will try to do that again this year. Below I will outline how it works. Participation is encouraged, but only commit to it if you really plan on buying a gift. In the past we had required members who have had a certain amount of posts, but I will not make that requirement. Last year we had good luck with everyone getting something I believe. So here is how it will work:
Add your name in the comments below if you are interested. I will accept names through November 10, 2018. When adding your name indicate what regions you want to exchange with. The options are:
North America Only (US, Canada, Mexico)
Anywhere (if you want to participate and have a preference message me)
Around the first of November, I will randomly match people up, and send a message to everyone asking for your shipping address
Once I have the list, I will post a separate topic asking for likes/dislikes, such as if you prefer gifts for yourself or your dogs, if your dog has a special diet or allergies (i.e. grain free, no rawhide)
Around mid-November I will send another message of the name and address of the person who you will be buying for.
Try and have your item(s) sent by early December, especially if you are shipping overseas. What I have done in the past is purchase them from an online store and have it gift-wrapped and sent directly to the person. However you can do it however you prefer. Just don't announce who you have or what you purchased.
When you get your Secret Santa gift, DONT open until December 24th.
The spending limit is $15 USD (or approximately £10) (or feel free to make your own gifts if you are so inclined)
If you have any questions please let me know.
