[Bump] - firstly I'd like to say hello to all you sexy beasts out there. I'm bumping the article to raise awarness of the the gift exchange before the cut off time. That way anyone who would like to participate or planned to has a chance to do so. Everyone is welcome to participate and I wish you all the best this Holiday Season
In my experience for the past 2 years there has been a Secret Santa here at Destructoid. The first one I joined was held by OpiumHerz if I’m not mistaken and the second held by Luna sy (much love to them both and all the other People gone by). That said I would like to continue this trend of community gift exchanging and effectively host the Secret Santa for this year. It is somewhat late in the game (as well as sudden but) I feel but with November being such a busy month for me I hadn’t been able to give this much thought until now. That said I think most people will still receive their object before or on Christmas, and if it’s a little after I’m sure most people here wouldn’t mind.
Like last year this will run through Elfster: https://www.elfster.com/exchange/view/22290219/5907e3/
Elfster from my understanding handles the pairing process so it will truly be random. If you don’t have an account just sign up (it’s free) and make your wish list. The sign up ends December 17th at which point you’ll be given your names for the exchange (by Elfster). The limit is $20 but if you happen to be feeling especially generous this time of year you can exceed that, just remember that your generosity won’t necessarily be reciprocate (read: if you spend more than 20 do it out of the kindness of your heart expecting nothing in return for your generosity).
Last year my d-toider was Ooktar and I gifted him a copy of space dandy (season 1 I believe). Solor Pony Django was my gifter and gave me a copy of The Last Door Collector’s edition. It was fun and I do hope you guys will participate this year as well.
And remember when you get your gift show some love to your fellow d-toider with a QP or should you be especially moved a blog.
