((sns)) secret santa is when you are sent the name of a 'giftee' that you send a present to and in return, you receive a surprise gift from them for Christmas; when you get your gift you realise who your Santa was...hence the 'Secret Santa' title
Secret Santa II......
OK count me in but ya better make this quick
Thunder and I are in
Now there is something I don't understand:
"secret santa is when you are sent the name of a 'giftee' that you
send a present to and in return, you receive a surprise gift from
them for Christmas; when you get your gift you realise who your Santa
was...hence the 'Secret Santa' title"
How do you realise who your Santa was ? Are you supposed to put your NAME and address on the parcel then ?
Obvious when you receive a parcel from "somebody" in The Netherlands there won't be much choice about who sent it, but from the same country ? l;ots of possible persons....
I've got about 15 names so far, plus I'ved pm'd the 30+ people who joined kelsie's thread to see if they want to join in too. If we use this thread to list what sort of things we like to help the person buying our gift then it will hopefully keep it near the top so anyone else who wants to join in can see it too.
I'll start. I love motorbikes, classic cars, etc. Lately I've been getting into a lot of new age things, something from your local culture, mid/body/spirit etc.
You will get a name that you buy for, but someone else will send you one. So its not the same person you are buying for that you receive from ( if that makes sense LOL) Its a secret until you get you pressie, so you can say its from you on the parcel.
Books - last year my secret Santa sent me Diane Wilson's Awakening of a JW - an excellent read especially for ex-JW women but I think men will get a lot from it too.
so books for me is always a great idea - not only do I read them but I collect them - 687 of them so far

blue white or silver xmas tree ornaments
or something from your country or city
I love anything to do with scented candles. My colours would be dusty rose/burgundy shades for my livingroom and diningroom. I can't get enough tea lites or candles. I just love the glow of candles in the wintertime.
I also enjoy both red and white wines.
