Any Interest in a MYOG Secret Santa?

#1

Post by Mophead » Thu Nov 30, 2017 11:23 am

I was thinking since this is a relatively small, friendly site how many would be interested in participating in a DIY MYOG secret santa (aka pollyanna) gift exchange. I was thinking people could exchange home made items with others for fun, to show off their mad skillz, get cool homemade camping stuff, whatever... But there's no reason people couldn't also gift raw materials, or thread injection tools like a rolled hem presser foot, fancy clips, etc.

I was thinking of keeping it cheap, maybe a $20 max limit. I have looked around online and it seems like elfster is the best tool. I can adjust the settings so people's personal info can only be viewed by the one sending them a gift and the coordinator. I would be willing to coordinate. I promise I don't sell insurance or have any other interest in your info and won't give it out. If others have a better suggestion on how to do it I am open. Sneaky santa is also very simple but everyone will be able to at least view emails at the very least.

Most the sites have "wishlists" but part of the fun is guessing what your partner would like based on their posts here, or getting something really unique that your santa is good at making but you would have never asked for. Maybe just use it to post a geargrams, lighterpack, or google sheets of a pack list to help your santa a little?

What do you think?

Cool Idea! I tried to get one going a year or two ago with no luck. Here is a link to the post, link to spreadsheet in first post.

Ah cool! I vaguely remembered something like that post. But I searched for "secret santa" and a couple terms but not tree swap.

I should have posted sooner, especially for something that requires DIY if we want it by Christmas. But if enough people are still down for it I'm game. We could post all our gifts in a thread afterward f its a success, maybe more will join in next year.

Ok, I created the event in elfster. I
Thinking meeting the deadline for US ground shipping by Christmas is a little close. So names will be drawn next Wednesday and I just made the exchange date after new years. That will give more time for any DIY and hopefully eliminate detracting from any family activities during Christmas.

https://www.elfster.com/exchange/view/29556746/41108f/

You can register at the link and once names are drawn you will only be able to see info for and message your match.

Sound good to everyone? If so I may post another thread in the DIY forum once it's final.
