Father Christmas The nights are drawing in, the children all are waiting. Father Christmas
The bears are safe in their caves from the Crump
(Though technically not hibernating).
This might be our last Christmas without president Trump...

Star So gather all ye Gracklers, Crumps and Tenderloins Star
Join us in a traditional yuletide thread.
To exchange some gifts bought with budgeted coins
And open them with some level of dread.

Reindeer Woollen warmers for all of our willies Reindeer
Playstation merch for Balladeer.
Big or small, heartfelt or silly
Send presents to forumites far and near!

It's time for
GNamer Secret Santa 2016!

X-Treme X-Mas X-Change 2K16 Giphy

Here we go again, boys and girls!
Last year was our best turnout ever for Secret Santa, with 12 forumites taking part!
Even though the Nintendo releases have been slow this year, and at times conversation has dropped off, we've stayed close thanks to our bonds of friendship. Some of us have met in person now, some of us are recording podcasts together and we've never seen more longform writing from GNamerans thanks to gintendo.

I think, even though this year hasn't had the highest post count ever, we're closer than ever! Here's to another smashing round of Secret Santa.
I was looking at using an online Secret Santa generator, after Andy recommended it, but it seems they only take care of the random names bit- I'd still have to organise it and, as the organiser, I'd know everyone. I think the old rules have always worked out okay, and I like being able to keep an eye on things and make sure everyone's Secret Santa experience is as smooth as possible.

The Rules


  • Everyone who wants to take part, PM me your request along with your address.
  • I'll pick names from a hat and PM people to let them know who they've got and where they live. This means the only people who'll see your address are me and whoever's sending you a present.
  • I'll draw names at 10pm UK time, the evening of Monday, 21st of November, so there will be plenty of time to buy, wrap and post presents. It would suck if someone missed out and their present arrived in January.
  • No matter how early your present arrives, we all open them on December 25th and post our thanks/ pics/ disgust.
  • Limit of £15, not including postage.
  • I'm taking part! I'm not sitting out just because I'm organising, this is really fun.
  • NO DROPPING HINTS. We all know eachother well enough to pick presents. And if not- Poundland willy warmer!
  • Gifts must be physical, tangible things; no emailing download codes or adopting felines.
  • Once names are dished out, no posting about the buying/ sending of presents in the thread. Gives the game away, see!
  • You can post if you receive your package, and it's nice if you can message me when you post.
  • If you say you're taking part then don't post out your present you'll be totally ostracised from the gang.


Confirmed Santas
Names are crossed out until I receive a PM confirming involvement with your address.

I'm in, but I'm going to say before Jay does that 28th sounds a little late, I'd like earlier.

I wonder though - the 28th seems a bit late to buy a gift and send it off and make sure it gets to the recipient. I defer to you though, Santalilly.

I was wondering about the date myself, torn between that Monday and the one before. I reckon I might move it forward, you know.

Just a reminder guys, you're not officially "in" until I get a PM with your address. I like to do them all from scratch every time, to be safe.

Actually that's a point, I have no idea where I want to have this sent... I'll have to see how the next couple of weeks of new place hunting go.

Don't worry, for the first three Secret Santas, none of us had met one another at all.

Mas, don't nag EofGiz if he's not too keen, as he doesn't GName a huge amount.

I'm just going to bring up when I see him then he can do what he wants.

PM sent with my address squire - it hadn't changed from last year to be fair, but no point in digging through your PMs for that. Laughing

The forum only keeps one page of PMs, as I discovered during a previous secret santa. Also, I like the extra layer of making sure people are confirmed that it adds, so no-one can post a hasty reply in the thread then not take part.

Including Andy, we're currently at 9 Santas, which ties us with 2015's secret Santa.

Our best was last year, when we had 12. In 2014 we had 11.
