US Secret Santa 2021



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 seventh (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 3nd..  Names will be drawn on November 4rd 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 11th. 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 2021

Psssttt I made a post on the elfster wall. Please check it before you finish shopping! I can't post it here.

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

It's tiiimmmmeeeee

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Thanks for inviting me, @IttyxBittyxMe ! I'm still waiting to see how many other gift exchanges I might participate in between now and January, but this one's definitely on my Want To list. 🙂 If I do participate again this year, I'll have to be much faster at gift gathering because the USPS will be extra slooooooow this year (thanks mostly to the usual holiday shipping crush and the USPS's crazy new service slow-down policy 🙄). Might even have to use UPS or FedEx instead. 😄 

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Awww, thank you for tagging me @IttyxBittyxMe ! 🤗. I didn't have the heart last year but I am eager to participate this year!❤️

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@IttyxBittyxMe I can't wait! It was such a blast participating last year. Thank you for including me again!!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

I'm definitely in full Halloween mode right now, but this is really exciting to think about, too.

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Thanks for the invite @IttyxBittyxMe I love this exchange but buying a new wardrobe due to weight loss so trying to save a bit and focus on my family. I’ll be watching this thread for unboxings though!

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

Congrats on the weight loss! 💖💖 Definitely take the time to focus on you and your fam. 

Re: US Secret Santa 2020

@IttyxBittyxMe I don’t know how I missed this! Thank you. I feel so much better these days. Both physically and mentally.
