    Ok, let's do this!

    How much should I plan on spending?
    In past years, we've done a ~$25 minimum, and we stick to that in varying degrees. You're allowed to spend more than the minimum of course, but please don't feel obligated :)

    How do I sign up?
    PM your EMAIL address, your MAILING address, and your FULL name to participate. I'll create an Elfster event after signups close.

    Sign up deadline will be 10/29 and we will draw names on 11/1. You'll have a whole month to research & shop before sending your gift between December 1st and Christmas.

    It’s already 10/11, so I imagine if someone were interested in organizing one they already would have.

    @android is the official Keeper of the Elves and I will not deprive her of that. That said, since @Comet started the thread, we might as well get the ball rolling. Hop to it girl, I wanna see your take on the annual questionnaire.

    I don't want to steal @android's job! Unless she doesnt want it in which case I'll totally do it because chicken secret Santa is the most wonderful time of the year. I just keep seeing so many things and thinking "oh, that would be perfect for this chicken or this would be great for that chicken" and so I NEED to know who I have this year so I can start stalking and planning and buying.

    Yes! More time for stalkingresearching your recipient!

    I'm working on it! Are there any questions that you've wished were asked in the survey in previous years that we should add?

    I may be alone in this but I always feel like the more questions the better, because you get so much good info for gift browsing!

    Without going back to past surveys (because I’m currently lying on the tile floor praying for death lol) off the top of my head:

    - something trendy that you love
    - something trendy that you hate
    - favorite vacation destinations
    - favorite books/movies
    - fandoms you love
    - favorite season
    - kids/pets info if relevant
    - candy/snack preferences
    - something you always talk about doing but never actually do
    - favorite animal
    - favorite colors
    - current home style aesthetic
