US Secret Santa 2020



It’s time yet again! Just reusing the thread from last year cause why not? I am pleased to host the BT Secret Santa for the sixth (I mean that sounds right? Maybe not?) year!


The rules are pretty much the same as the last few years!  




1. US only

2. Must have a minimum of 600 posts on BT and be an active poster within the past two months! This is a community activity so participants should be an active part of said community.

3. You must make an account on elfsfer! That’s where the wishlists will be and the drawing will take place! Make sure your wishlists are updated with proper SHADE information and your address. 

4. The spending minimum is $50. Meaning you can buy one item that is $50 and have it count or multiple items to total up to $50! And as per usual, you can spend over on your elf if you so choose!

5. If there is even the slightest possible hint that you're going to buy something on your wishlist, do not put it on your wish list!

6. Include a gift receipt if the item your buying includes shade selection!








- To Sign Up:  November 2nd..  Names will be drawn on November 3rd and elfster will send you an email with who you got. Shoot me a message and I'll send you the sign up link! I know its a little quick this year because I started late but I always try to do it with the sale.

- To Send Gift: December 15th. Gifts will need to be sent by or on this date. 



any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM!


Happy Santa-ing!Decret-santa





Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@tjffc Yay another unboxing.

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

To my secret Santa...I got so excited about the PMG $12 lipstick sale today that I unwittingly bought 2 items on my wishlist. Both BlitzTrance Club Kiss and Rebel Red. I'm sorry! I am fine returning mine if you bought them.

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

I got my goodies today from my Secret Elf @jen81 


Here is what greeted me inside of the box

Now the fun part, the unwrapping of everything 

I got the lovely PMG Rose Decadence palette, which is so stunning in person and will go lovely with my Mothership Divine Rose palettes. Some face masks and deluxe size samples of makeup and skincare products.  Also included in the box was my favorite texturizing spray from Oribe. 


Thank you @jen81 for all my goodies. I cannot wait to start using everything. Some of which are new items to me.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!!



Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@SportyGirly125 ...that is one questionable looking ornament...haha jk! What fun gifts!!!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@Samtian Haha 😂 thank you 

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Glad you liked your gifts @SportyGirly125 ! Would have liked to make you some homemade treats but was worried about covid and had to quarantine due to an exposure. After that was over I thought I better get the gift out before anything else happens! 

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

What a cute avocado ornament! The PMG Rose Decadence looks so pretty, @SportyGirly125 I'm sure it will be a great addition to your collection. It looks like @jen81 included some really yummy looking treats!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@quspork yes love the PMG palette.  Plus I know in Pat's Masterclass you can use them as blush and highlighters.


Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Ooooh looks like some super fun sheet masks @SportyGirly125 ! Happy holidays !!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@Kim888 Thank you!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@SportyGirly125  I love the variety of gifts. Of course my eyes immediately zeroed in on the PMG palette. 😍 Spiced apple cider tea sounds wonderful for this time of year. And the avocado ornament made me chuckle. Enjoy your goodies! 


Also: @jen81 great job of gift curating and wrapping! 💙

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@WinglessOne I was excited for the PMG palette when I unwrapped everyhting.

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

That palette is stunning, @SportyGirly125! The little avocado ornament is so cute, I bet it will look perfect on your tree. @jen81 sent along chocolate as well, I bet those will be delicious ☺️ Enjoy!!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

I wanted to go to the same store that I got treats for you last year @eshoe . I had to quarantine and that meant I couldn’t go to work. The shop is near my work place is so fun to look for treats. It was quite upsetting as I think my parents have covid. (They refused to test) But they are recovering now and I was so stressed my whole family was going to get it. By some miracle we didn’t. So I decided to hurry up and ship out multiple Christmas gifts before anything else happened. I thought about making homemade treats but wasn’t sure how people would feel about it with covid and everything. 

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

I am so sorry about your parents, @jen81, but relieved to hear they are both recovering.  And also that your family didn’t catch anything! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving:)

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@eshoe Thank you!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@SportyGirly125 Lovely gifts from your secret elf.  Enjoy all of you treats.  

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@tjffc Thank you!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Enjoy all your goodies @SportyGirly125

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@faeriegirl Thank you!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020



I am absolutely blown away. You 100% spoiled me with these gifts. You curated the perfect goodies and I'm so excited to share them with everyone and enjoy all of it this season! 


For all our other little elves, here is the amazing package that arrived at my house yesterday...


First up, it was two boxes, each packed full with treats!




I mean, how can anyone not smile seeing all the fun decorations and beautiful wrapping?






You did a beautiful job on the wrapping, @SportyGirly125 not to mention it was all packed so well that everything arrived completely intact! 


Here are the goodies, unwrapped... Again, I was so spoiled here!




Is that a Miss Piggy snout poof? Why yes, yes it is! Plus I love love love B&BW shea socks. And Kopari, Fenty, L'occitane, masks? It's too much! The LM creams smell divine and I'm so excited to try the pedi pebble since I've heard so much about them but have never picked up one up. 


But that's just beauty items. What about yummy treats? Yup, those are right here!




The picture doesn't do the mug justice- it's a gorgeous rainbow prism design. I cannot wait to try all the yummy teas - that blackberry sage is calling my name, LOL! Plus Sugarfina gummies and chocolate mints YUMMMMM


And that's still not everything!


Of course there are holiday surprises too!




!!! How perfect is all of this?! @SportyGirly125, did you make the wreath??? I absolutely adore it! Seriously, it's so cute and I cannot wait to hang it up! 


And a close up of the ornament ball (which had more Fenty inside) because this just melted my heart...






Now all of that would be more than enough. But @SportyGirly125 went above and beyond. Because there's more...


Sporty and I discovered a couple of years ago that we're practically birthday twins- just a day apart. So being the sweetheart that she is, she included a few early birthday gifts too! 




So many amazing smelling hand creams and I cannot wait to try out the Sweet Chef! But that pig wallet tho! It's just perfection!


So, in the end, Sporty- thank you for everything. You are the best secret Santa and so good at spreading some holiday cheer. This entire package is perfection from beginning to end. Thank you so much for just being you! 🎅
