Ho Ho Ho!

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS POST CAREFULLY, THERE ARE SOME SLIGHT MODIFICATIONS TO THIS YEAR'S GIFT EXCHANGE.


This has been a rough 2 years for many of us, so more than ever I think a lot of us need something to look forward to and some holiday cheer (despite not being in the holidays yet)! No matter what you celebrate at this time of year you're welcome to join us in the spirit of giving. Anyone who wishes to join must let me know by posting in this thread by OCTOBER 29th so that I can get everyone matched and that they can get their gifts out in time.

FIRST AND FOREMOST I WANT THIS TO BE A SAFE EXCHANGE FOR EVERYONE. To date, there is absolutely no evidence that COVID-19 can be transferred through the mail. If there is any danger it would come from your delivery person being sick, not from the person sending the parcel. That said, to accommodate for the world situation I've made some adjustments to the rules and timelines to hopefully ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and safe experience.


Here are the rules:

1. Any current member of the RPF as of the posting of this thread may participate (ie: no joining now just to participate). HOWEVER, by joining you are agreeing to both give and receive a gift. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to send your gift please let me know immediately so that I can arrange a work around. People who do not send gifts have in the past been banned. It's not worth it for a $20 gift! PLEASE only join if you are going to participate.

In addition, if you or anyone that you have been in contact with, has or has had Coronavirus within the past month please do not sign up unless you plan on ordering something online and having it directly shipped to your recipient. Again, the risk of transferring the disease through mail is almost non-existent but we don't want to tempt fate in any way. If you discover after signing up that you or someone you're in contact with has contracted COVID then please contact me as soon as you're able to. I'm relying on the honesty of the membership for this one, we're not going to demand test results, but PLEASE consider your fellow members when it comes to this.


2. When you sign up you must state whether you wish to ship domestically or internationally (please include what country is "domestic" in your post). In your post also please include your interests and a wish list to help your gift giver with ideas. By all means post "wishful thinking" wants but also put some realistic ideas in there too. Note that while I am asking for international volunteers, I will be making every effort to match people up with those in the same country. The mail service is, and will be, doubly busy this year so this is to try and avoid potential long delays, lost packages, and customs issues. This means, for instance, that if only 2 people from your country sign up you will almost certainly be matched. Some exceptions may be made on a case by case basis or in situations where it can't be helped.


3. Although there is no limit to the cost of gift you are encouraged to keep your gifts at about the $20 range. Creativity will undoubtedly be appreciated by your recipient! Something handmade with $20 worth of materials can be worth more than spending $100 at a store. You are of course able to send a gift of any value if you like but understand that what you receive will likely be in this range. Please keep your gifts in accordance with the RPF guidelines. Many members open their gifts on Christmas with their families so sexual, profane, or provocative gifts are not necessarily welcome by everyone. KNOW YOUR RECIPIENT and send something accordingly.


4. I will keep a list of names updated in this thread - please PM me if you are interested and include your address in the PM - When I draw names I will send the Secret Santa his or her recipient's details. The person you send a gift to will not necessarily be the person that sends you a gift. IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE ADDRESSES please use the one that you will be at for the holidays. Better for your parcel to arrive early and be held for you than have it sit on the step for a couple weeks waiting for you to get back from your parent's place.


5. Domestic gifts must be in the mail by December 10th. International should be sooner than that. If you don't want me harassing you please post a note saying that you've shipped either in this thread or via PM to me. If you need to push this deadline back a little bit you must contact me. It is still your responsibility to get the gift to your recipient on time.


6. A gift will be considered "lost" if it doesn't arrive by the end of the first full week of January. If your package had tracking you are not responsible and a new Santa will be provided. If your package did not have tracking you will have to send another gift.

TRACKING: Tracking is not mandatory but if you DO use tracking you are not responsible should the recipient not receive their gift. If you choose not to get your gift tracked that's fine but if the gift doesn't arrive you're still on the hook for it. This way you can still mail it any way you want but you know where you stand depending on the shipping method.


7. Although this is a "Secret" Santa you are more than welcome to let your recipient know who you are if you'd like to.


Finally, not a rule but in the spirit of this exchange please give a "thank you" in this thread to your Secret Santa and let us know what you received. Not only is it the polite thing to do but it lets your Santa and myself know that everything went smoothly. It's a Christmas exchange, please be grateful. Not everyone gets a "blow you out of the water" kind of gift. Don't expect it.

Here's hoping for another successful and SAFE year!

List is updated!

As for my interests:

- James Bond (Mostly Connery, Dalton, & Craig)
- Jurassic Park
- Star Wars (OT & ST, including Rogue 1)
- Star Trek (TOS & TNG)
- Doctor Who
- Game of Thrones

I have a lot of the stuff that I'd like from most of these franchises (aside from GOT, I only have a Stark banner, a wonderful SS gift from days past), but some specifics I've been thinking about lately:

- The "radio" from Skyfall
- Jack the Bulldog from the Craig Bond films (more of a HR item, but never hurts to mention)
- Homing device from Goldfinger

As, unfortunately, my Santa will not be secret they are free to ask me whatever they like about what I currently have. But please, surprise me! :)

Hey everyone!
Would gladly be a part of this again!
My main interests:

Anything Star Wars

I especially enjoy smaller selfmade props you can hold in your hand or display on a shelf. (Not so much a fan of posters or badges. :p)
But of course let your spirits fly! I'll surely have fun with anything you care to send! ;)

Preferably shipping inside continental Europe - but if there's no match I'll also ship internationally.

Let's do this! Can't wait to start tinkering! :D

Hi everybody!
I would love to take part in the exchange this year again, the last couple of years have been a blast.
Here are some of my favorite fandoms:

HALO Infinite (can be other HALO games)
Anthem (Bioware Game)
Destiny 2: (Main Hunter class)
Star Wars: (favorite era is Rouge 1 -> Mandalorian)
Hot Wheels (World Race/Acceleracers)

I am a huge fan of hand made gifts/props because it's like owning a one of a kind item. I like either full scale (costume) or miniature (models) props. I am excited to see what everyone gets this year.

Due to shipping conditions into and out of the USA, I will be only shipping domestic USA this year.
