I might put interests in my wish lists because I don't want things per say. I'm the worst
I didn't participate last year because there was a wish list. I'd rather folks put interests, I suppose.

(might participate this year......thinking :)

I think it's just easier for many people to look at a list when they don't know someone very well or at all.

thanks and got it on the text entry of interests/hobbies. Wish List for me entered.

I don't understand how interests don't translate into things. I assume when one or several of you put "german shepherd dogs", you would want something with a german shepherd theme or image on it since a german shepherd dog is like $15K (beyond our $20 limit). :wink:

rsmath @rsmath Here's a screenshot of how to just put text in for wishes.

yep. It's the lamest when it's not so obvious to me. :wink: I see a search bar and assume I have to search their catalog of suggestions/items and point and shoot stuff into a wish list. I'd rather just type text of my interests/hobbies, especially since that's my preference since I can simply take someone's interests/hobbies and type it into a search box at a retailer and get a list of items for sale to consider gift giving that would meet that person's likes.

Yay everyone has been matched!

I think the biggest thing is I hope everyone can figure out who they have. I know some people didn't put their forum name in their sign up name (myself included). It does appear that Elfster lets you edit your name or Nickname on your account - so if everyone can add their forum name, that should help.

Make sure to update wish list with items (or interests!) To help your secret santa out!
