πŸŽ„ 2019 MTURK CROWD SECRET GIFT EXCHANGE πŸŽ„


Welcome to the 2019 Secret Santa thread!
Clicky HERE to sign up. The deadline for sign up is November 22 which should be plenty of time for slow turtles to find this thread.
The gift limit is $20 (shipping not included)
Your contact details (for mailing your treasure) will only be available to your gift giver.

Elfster has a reputation of sometimes being picky with Chrome in the past, so if you encounter difficulties in signing up, it might be a good idea to use another browser.

This exchange is meant to be fun! Sparkling holiday spirit and sleighbells and all that happy stuff! Feel free to ask questions here in the thread or you can contact Turtlefemm @Turtlefemm savvy @savvy or DareAngel3 @DareAngel3 via PM.

Remember, the maximum to spend should be $20! You can use your drawn person's wish list (Elfster has a great wish list option) or bake them treats or if you feel creative in other ways, you can create a gift for them. No stress! This is fun, fun, fun!!!

Feel free to use your MTC screen name if you want people to know who you are, just remember it is probably better that your gift address has your actual name on it for those random picky mailmen who are grumpy during the holidays!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

I'm in!

What are "Organizer Assistants"?

I assume the Wish List will also need to be completed by Nov 20th to help the secret santa gift giver? I also hope if you have a favorite animal that you would accept having a themed-gift of, you will list them as well in the wish list because it's not obvious to me that your online spirit or animal persona is something you would actually like to have a gift featuring that animal IRL.

I have two assistants... Dareangel and Savvy lol. It would be ideal to put something in your wishlist by the time your secret santa chooses you. It makes it easier for people to know what to get you. Or they can just send you something they think up. I personally don't care what I receive because I just love the spirit of the whole thing :D My personal online spirit animal is very much a turtle lol... It's also my offline spirit animal and a sometimes real life nickname.

I still have to fill out my wish list, but I hope others participating do the same because I'm a horrible gift giver πŸ‘¨ unless I have some idea about the person I'm gift-shopping for -- hobbies, interests, themes (turtle for you, for example), etc.

Hi guys! Try to add a few things to your wishlist on Elfster to make it easier for your secret Santa to get your gift! Even if you just write in something that interests you, it can be very helpful to a Santa who might not have a clue what kind of things you like. I mean, everyone knows I love turtles, but what do you guys like? πŸŽ„

I was looking at the wish list function - are you not able to get a text box to write in things? All I am seeing is having to search for items and add it to a wish list instead of just being able to type some hobbies/interests into a text box.

Maybe I'll type up a hobbies/interests text graphic and post it as my profile pic. :wink:

Hey! Up at the search it says "More Options" and you can add just text :)

I might put interests in my wish lists because I don't want things per say. I'm the worst
