It's Secret Santa Time Again. Secret Santa 4


Yes it's September so time to advertise Secret Santa again. Last year again saw an increase in numbers and was again a great success. Cath will again be running this for me, allowing me to join in the fun.

For those who have joined since last year here is a few pointers. Each person joining in the SS are given a name and details of their target (your being selected for someone else to buy for). The spend should be around £15 or equivalent plus postage, Cath tries to pick someone in your own Country as a target but you can always buy via the internet in your targets country to cut down cost.

Below are the rules in a little more detail.

1. To enter you need to either have a blog or be a regular follower of this blog already. This is to give confidence to all involved that everyone will follow through to the end. If you have a blog and don't follow this one it's OK to join in.

2. The present should be around £15 plus postage (best to buy the present actually in the country the receiver lives in so cutting down postage costs)

3. It's OK to have a wish list but it's just as good to buy something you think the person would like. Blog details of your target are given so you can snoop.

4. Whilst it's not essential it really added to Cath's enjoyment when the SS checked in with her to let her know target had incoming.

5. You should promote the Secret Santa on your blog to hopefully increase the numbers joining in.

6. You should sign up by 1st November so to allow time for picking gifts.

7. Gifts should arrive by 20th December if possible. It's fine to get the supplier to send direct and I would be cheeky and ask them to gift wrap  ;-)

8. Item/s should be wargame related though it's OK to throw in something odd if you want to.

Well that's all I can think of at the moment regards rules etc. You have right up to the 1st of November to sign up but I would appreciate some early birds as it makes organising it that much easier. I will need the blog name and an e-mail address for you (plus your real name)

9. You can sign up by sending me an email via the gadget to the right of the posts or details in the comments section.  Those returning only need to let me know they are in again and any change of details as Cath has last years details.

So lets slip the (slay)dogs of war and looking forward to seeing this baby develop.

  2. I said last year that I'd join in, and so I will.

    Will Chris Stoesen be running the other SS, do you know?
