Canadian Secret Santa 2019

Sign ups closed!

 

I know I'm not alone in living for the holiday season and always look forward to the gift exchanges here on BIC.  Where we didn't have a Canada thread started, I figured I'd get one rolling for us.

Rules:

1.  Open to both U.S. and Canada.  If in Canada, you can choose that you only want to ship within the country via Elfster.  ๐Ÿ™‚

2.  Must have a minimum of 600 posts and have been active within the past 6 months.

3.  You must have an Elfster account-- that's how we'll be drawing and where your wishlist is going to live.  

3.  I'm going to be traditional here and say that there's a $50 minimum this year.  I know first hand how easy it is to get carried away, so it's okay if you go over but there's no expectation.

Deadlines:

Spoiler

Sign ups:  November 5, 2019

Gifts Sent:  December 10, 2019-  all gifts must be shipped by this date.

Shipping tricks:

Spoiler
The US can receive a gift up to 100$ USD. If you are sending a gift from Canada and mark it as 100$ you are actually saying it cost you 100$ CAD. Today Google converts that to 73.30$ USD so your recipient should be ok and not pay additional fees.

Canada can receive a gift up to 60$ CAD. If you are sending a gift from the US and it was 60$, you are actually saying it cost you 60$ USD. Today Google converts that to 81.86$ CAD. So your Canadian recipient in this case might pay duties/taxes/fees. But if your gift only cost you is lets say 35$ USD today Google converts that to 47.75$CAD. So the recipient shouldn't pay fees.

Anyone interested this time around? ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@Nickelliebear1 was there a different thread where you guys posted your boxes from last year?  I can only see one unboxing on here?

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@missjeanie We typically posted on the Elfster page last year. But here's a photo of the gift I received from my amazing elf! 2976764.jpeg

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@Snglbug  ahhh gotcha! I was wondering where all the fun pics were. I love seeing everyoneโ€™s unboxings! 
that Starbucks via looks so yummy! 

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@missjeanie It was amazing! I couldn't decide between guzzling it all down or savouring it and making it last. My lack of willpower won and I drank it everyday until it ran out! ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

lol @Snglbug  that's hilarious... but I also would have been in the same situation with the same outcome lol

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@Guessgal @ayeshayh @melissapurple22 Are you gals in this year?

 

@KehDee I remember you were interested last year but missed the deadline. Hope you can join this year! 

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

I would be down for an exchange! Except I havent been posting much so if theres a "must be active the last three months" I might not qualify :(. The last one had that requirement I think... But I've been part of many! And I'm def down. 

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@Nickelliebear1 Heck yes!!

 

 

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

Hey, @Nickelliebear1 ...I see you over there updating your Elfster wishlist.๐Ÿ‘€

 

Does this mean you're gearing up to run another Secret Santa this year? (please say yes!)

 

Re: Canadian Secret Santa 2019

@Snglbug @SportyGirly125 hit the nail on the head, it's for the Halloween exchange.  But the holidays are creeping on me like this hat is... so I've been thinking about it.  giphy
