The Official SWFUK Secret Santa 2017 Is Now Open!!!

Postby Secret Santa » Wed Aug 30, 2017 10:39 am

Ho, ho, ho, I'm back........

As the rest of the world brings Chrimbo ever closer to summer I have decided to do a Jyn and rebel!
In other words this thread is a couple of weeks late :lol: :oops:

So, without further ado I hereby declare the Official SWFUK Secret Santa 2017 Open!! 8)

Interested? Then declare you're in on this thread, write a wish list and your paired SS does the rest :D

Lets not forget this is supposed to be a bit of fun so the target price has been lowered to £25, this might not sound much in Vintage SW terms but there are plenty of bargains out there- at a push you can even still find MOCs in this ballpark as well as tons of loose figures and oddball items.

I feel the price is right, work secret santas are often only £5 or £10 and many people actually spend less than £25 on family members and friends.

And don't worry about this random nutcase, I'm a Sith Lord under a different name, just this way its more secret :lol:
Registration closes on Friday October 20th, everyone will be paired up by the 22nd October

You will then have until Saturday 16th December to deliver a wonderful Secret Santa present to your partner.

Rules:
1, You must be a member who has a post count of over 50 and who joined the forum before August 1st 2017
2, Please add your wish list to this thread, think about whats possible within budget (check eBay sold items for example) and try not to make it too difficult for your paired person.
3, Please PM me your address, i will forward it on to your paired partner.
4, Please be creative and get into the spirit. In recent years lots of presents were wrapped, cards made and overall the effort was more than brilliant.
5, The target price is £25 plus postage. If you purchase something cheaper, please try to make up the balance.
6, To save money on postage if you and the recipient are both going, there will be the option to hand deliver your present at the Farthest From weekend in December.
7, You must keep proof of postage.
8, Please photograph the item/items prior to posting.
9, On receipt of your present please inform me so i can inform the sender.
10, I will begin a present reveal thread at Xmas, everyone must upload a photo of their present.
11, Finally, we are a global community with some extremely active members from overseas. If posting an item abroad is an issue for you please let me know.

This has always been a fun community forum event which has provided people with fantastic presents. Let's make this the best one yet!

Merry Christmas everyone!! :mrgreen:
