That's right, Christmas is back again, no matter how much you try to make it go away. It, and its pesky Christmas music and its pesky Christmas anime avatars.
Amna's father, maybe?
Destructoid's Secret Santa is a time-honored tradition -- only a couple more years and you could take a drink with it. Probably. I'm not counting. In any case, one thing stays the same: You are assigned another Destructoid community member in secret and have to gift them something for Christmas, and likewise you'll receive a gift from a secret other user.
There's no hard rule on pricing, but if you're looking for pointers 20$ is usually a good target. Don't feel like you have to get something expensive to show appreciation to the person you're sending a gift to, it's the thought that counts! Likewise, don't expect anything out of what your Secret Santa will give you. If you feel like you can make cool things by hand, you can totally send a gift of your own design!
If you wish to help your Secret Santa figure out your tastes, there's a handy wish list function on Elfster. Santas don't have to stick to the wishlists (and in fact, I think it's better not to follow them, the gifts are more surprising that way!) but it's a good way of letting people know what you're into.
The Sign-up deadline is November 16, so you'll get to know who you're paired with on November 17. Then you'll have until Christmas to deliver the goods!
(and maybe write a blog about what you receive if you find it relevant???????????????)
