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

Yay for unboxings! @SportyGirly125 was definitely on the ball with her holiday shopping, @Samtian. There are so many wonderful things here. Plus the amazing box decor--- how fun is that? Enjoy your goodies! 

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@quspork I just loved the special box décor touches! Thank you!

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

Enjoy all your awesome goodies @Samtian

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@faeriegirl Thank you, I definitely will!

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@Samtian Yay!!! Everything arrived safe and sound and super fast.  It was so hard being your Secret Elf because I already knew a lot of the questions I asked you.  I was trying to throw you off in not knowing your hobby.  How can I not know what you do?  You take amazing pictures and I follow you on the Gram.


I think I got you covered in almost all areas of makeup: eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss/lipstick, highlighter and lipliner.  Check, check, check.  Hahaha.


I am so thrilled you love everything I picked out.  As soon as I saw who I got I already knew what to buy and the theme for the box.  I hope the fur babies like the treats.  I couldn't leave them out.

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@SportyGirly125 ❤️ awe thank you so so much!! It's so great to hear that because I have imposter syndrome lol. Those are all my important areas of makeup! I love how you already knew the theme and what to get @sprocketta always tells me she feels sorry for whoever gets me because I have so much on my list. I'm sure they will! They are pigs! Fred is only a little over a year and weighs 11.5lbs. I appreciate them being included. 

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@Samtian Awww...Fred is getting so big now.  


Maybe it's just me but I thought you were actually really easy to shop for.  The problem I was having was trying not to buy everything in sight.  The only thing that stopped me was the box can only hold so much.  Hahaha.

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@SportyGirly125 Hahaha! Yes Fred is a chonky boi.

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

Weeee! I got a shipping notification! I'm so excited. But undecided if I should open the gifts or wait haha. Should be here Friday!

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

Oooh so fast! I would open.. one gift and then go from there @Samtian 😁

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

That’s exciting @Samtian !!! Someone is very speedy lol 

Re: US Secret Santa 2021

@Samtian Wow!  That was so fast.  I can't wait to see the goodies.
