[livejournal.com profile] mockduck suggested a Secret Santa for her f-list this year, so this is where you sign up.

The first rule of Secret Santa is you DO NOT tell your recipient that you've sent them the gift. The second rule of... oh, let's not go there. But yes, please don't tell - if you want to have a guess or reveal yourself, please wait until after your lucky recipient has opened and enjoyed their gift.

It should all work like this....

Enter your details in the poll below - don't worry, I'm not the government, and consequently your personal details really are safe with me, and won't be found on a memory stick left on the underground. I promise. Also, if you want to give some clue as to what kind of person you are / what sort of thing might tickle your fancy, please add a few key-words in the poll which will be passed on to your Secret Santa to help provide inspiration. However, if you don't mind what you get, just put 'anything' in the text box.

Because of posting timescales, particularly last post to the USA, we need to have some deadlines in place. Therefore, this is the procedure, and these are the dates to remember:-

Sign-up needs to take place by 12:00 noon UTC on Saturday 6th December - that's only a week from when this first goes up, so spread the word people!

The random assignation of givers and receivers will be undertaken via a complicated procedure involving my children, a hat and several pieces of paper on the Saturday afternoon. You will receive the details (lj name, name & address) by e-mail from me within 24 hours.

Gifts should really be posted as soon as possible. Please be aware that if you get someone who lives in the USA, the last posting date is 10th December, which only gives you a few days to organise, wrap and send your gift.

There is no price limit on gifts - obviously don't spend more than you can afford. Equally, home made / home created gifts are positively encouraged.

It would be appreciated if you could drop me an e-mail once your gift has been posted - that helps me to keep track of what's been sent and when, so that I can chase up any queries, or even (heaven forfend) prod any of you who may have inadvertently not made it to the post office just yet...

Finally, it would be nice if you write an entry about your received gift to send me a link to the entry so that we can have them all indexed in one place early in the new year, and everyone can see what everyone received.

Merry Christmas - any questions, reply below.
