Question..... is it possible for us to purchase something and just have it delivered to our secret persons home??
Like Amazon gift wraps and sends it straight to them??
This would be great for me since I do most of my shopping online and would have to pay double shipping.

Yes, you should be able to do that as long as they can give you a tracking #.

With the Kohl's ad dropping, now I can really start the SS shopping list! So much fun! Love the SS exchange! :trampolin


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

Please post here when you receive your packages, even if you are going to wait to open them.  I have a couple tracking #s that show delivered, but we haven't heard from the recipients.

To anyone that missed out on Secret Santa, Gottadeal is up and moving all year every day, not just around Black Friday.  They started back around September trying to get things worked out and line up.  Lots of things always going on here in the forum, there is just no Black Friday ads.  They have to have a cutoff date, in order to arrange and be fair to those shipping boxes.  Normally the deadline to ship is first weekend of Decemeber, just to make sure everyone receives a box. Ornament, Xmas card.  In addition sometimes the people hosting the events change and need to know who all has flaked out in the past.  The forum may not be as busy, but their is still lots of things going on, besides we have to give Brad something to do throughout the year. Secret Santa is only as fun as you make it, Shipping directly is fine, plus that adds one less hassle when shipping, just order early.  Another reason for a deadline.

I have a couple things bought but still have to find more to put in. The deadline will be here before I know it!


Sometimes the thoughts in my head go for a walk out through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing. :no:
