I know I'm in $20 tier but I can't wait to spoil my match anyways :3
>>
>>10888810
ty matches for doing a really good job of filling out the form I feel like I did a bad job now >^<
>>
Found one of the items on my match’s wishlist right away! Gotta get some other things to fill it out but I’m so glad I was able to find a wishlist item right away! I’m hoping this helps make her Christmas amazing.
>>
Is it okay if 45 tier has only one clothing item? I know I could get more but not brando items.
>>
i wish we had a no spoil rule. i put it in my form but the last few years i think my matches thought i was being humble or something. i get really horrible guilt from it so please respect your match if they put that.
>>
>>10888796
I almost missed your post since the threads changed but I’m so glad I spotted it! I’ve never gotten a santa who likes Negima, or even knows it I think, so I’m very happy! It’s my “out of character” favorite but I love it so much.

Also I’d definitely be interested in the Milklim cutsews! My specificity about the years is mostly to help people who don’t know anything about the brand, since some of the stuff they put out in their last couple years was just mass produced garbage with a Milklim label but since you’re already familiar with them, if you think the quality is okay then go for it!
>>
Hi 7169! I’m super excited to shop for you, your style is right up my alley.
I wanted to check on a few things before I really start buying: you said you don’t want an abundance of indie brand items, are jp indie brands okay with you? Especially older or defunct ones? And are you okay with some smaller items from indie or taobao brands? Nothing major, no clothing items, I just have a couple things in mind that I have personally and can vouch for that I think you would like in other colorways, but if you’d rather I skip it then I can!
Also, what VNs and JRPGs are you into other than Persona?
>>
>>10889097
Hi! Yes, jp indie brands are totally fine! I forgot to mention that, thank you so much. As for taobao and other non-jp indie items, I will trust you that they’re high quality, but I wouldn’t want it to be a main part of my gift or anything. Thank you for checking!

Persona is really the main game I like, lol, it’s almost to the point of excess… I can’t overstate it. But! I also enjoy Higurashi, Hashihime of the Old Book Town, and the original Pokemon gameboy games.

Can’t wait to see what you buy, I’m so excited! I’m sure I’ll love whatever you get.
>>
>found an item from my giftee’s wishlist
>it’s overpriced
Anonnettes, should I bite the bullet?
>>
>>10889095
awesome!! super excited to put this together for you!! i already have tons of great ideas.
>>
>>10889104
If it's overpriced, personally I would refrain.
Did she give you anything else to go off of? Anything she collects / other indications as to what she may like? Or was it only a wishlist?
>>
>>10889090
get therapy
>>
>>10889147
NTA but I hope you're not my match. It's reasonable to feel bad in a lower tier if your match has spent 3x the amount when you joined a low tier for a reason.
>>
>>10889104
do it nonna
>>
>>10889104
if it's within the price limit for your bracket then sure. but if not then just get something else desu
>>
>>10889090
lmao I hope you match with a stingy anon then, everyone will be happy.
>>
>>10889104
that's probably why they haven't bought it yet. maybe receiving it as a gift would be guilt-free compared to buying an overpriced item themselves. but either choice is fine.
>>
Hello 2464 and 2097!

This is your Santa checking in to let you know I've already started shopping! I'm so excited to put together the perfect set of presents. I wear sweet too so it's going to be a blast hunting down items that fit your specific styles

Thank you both for being so thorough in the form. If I have any questions I'll be sure to drop them in the thread
>>
>>10889194
if anon joined a low bracket then it's not stingy? you sound like a brat.
>>
Hi 6311! Also just checking in. I have started shopping already and found a few cute things I think you will like. Will definitely be sending you some local sweets and teas too so am excited to hopefully find some things you havent tried!
>>
3157 & 6311 !! Popping in to let you both know ive started shopping! I already have the bulk of both of your gifts ordered, I'm super excited!!
>>
I got the main part of my gift this week, still looking for more and I'm going to start on cards soon too!
>>10889325
3157 here, I'm so excited! I know my application kinda sucked, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me with a burner account because I know I was kinda vague.
>>
4894 -- hi! you mentioned you're running out of storage space and would prefer one main gift versus several little filler pieces. i've already picked out your main gift, but would you be okay with one or two extra things that you've specifically asked for? obviously don't want to overwhelm you with things, but 'tis the season.
>>
>>10889309
2464 here! I’m glad I was thorough enough for you, I always worry that I don’t give enough information! And it’s also good to know that you’re in the thread and active. I got grinched last year so it’s really comforting to see you in the thread!
>>
>>10889330
I think I bought them the same thing you did. I didn't use the reservation system on the wishlist site because I thought they'd be able to see what was purchased. So, I guess they're going to have a backup.
>>
>>10889309
Thank you for your efforts, Santa. Happy holidays!
>>
>>10889367
P.S. sorry, this was dumb of me to post. i got woken up in the middle of the night by coyotes howling and posted this half-asleep because i was stressed to notice the situation. i will contact the organizers for more gift ideas to add to my gift since it seems like you're planning to buy the other options in the lower price tier so even if i got a replacement gift chances are that it would end up a duplicate as well. apologies if i still sound dumb, it's still the middle of the night. i will handle it tomorrow when I'm wiser and more coherent.
>>
>>10889367
hi, just fyi, I tested it and the owner of the wishlist can’t see what we’ve bought unless they log out or turn on a specific option. I used the reservation system because I was afraid of this happening! I don’t mind trying to sell the thing I bought secondhand and buying something else for them, lol. do you have a throwaway email so I can contact to confirm we don’t buy the same stuff?
>>
>>10889384
Thank you for reaching out. That was totally on me for not using the system. I don't have a throwaway set up, but I will email the organizers and tell them to share my email with you so that we can coordinate our efforts without bringing the public into it like I accidentally did. I'll just include the existing duplicate as a bonus item - maybe our giftee will want to twin with a friend.
>>
Nooo i totally missed out on this. Ive joined in the past 3 years :( dang. If any slots open up to join or help with grinch please let me know.
>>
I'm hoping I can join next year too. I'm a little too tight on funds to be shipping things internationally this year.
>>
I better check in too- 3460, I think I got something you would like, still looking for goodies to add but I´m looking forward to putting everything together for you!
>>
hi 2097! a few questions from your (second) santa:

do you generally look for matching printed accessory sets to coord with the dresses you own, or do you prefer solid accessories for their versatility?
if you're interested in complete sets (matching headbows/otks/bags), are there any specific dresses you do not want to receive matching accessories for?
are there any specific kumyas or kumya paraphernalia items you've been looking for?

if you'd prefer not to give specifics, that's totally alright, and i'll continue my search as planned.
>>
>>10889104
hi anon, if you're in $75 tier, i think we're looking at the same mercari listing.

ignore if i'm wrong, but let me know if you'd like to reach out to the organizers to exchange contact info, like the other anons itt who have the same giftee.
>>
>>10889330
Hi! Thanks for checking in! It's honestly no problem, feel free to put as much or as little as you think is good! It's not a hard rule or anything. I mostly put that note there because some of my past santas have stressed about not having tons and tons of side gifts, so I just wanted to make sure that my future santas don't stress about it too because I'm happy either way. Plus if it's something I listed, then I have a storage plan for it so those types of things are totally fine. Thanks for being such a thoughtful santa!

>>10889367
Thanks for checking in too! Honestly I already appreciate you two being my santas, so I'm sure I'll love whatever you got! And yes, I have a friend who I sometimes twin with, so duplicates are totally fine!
>>
>>10889435
I like both print and solid accessories. I have a lot of stuff already, but it's because I like a lot of stuff, so don't worry if your idea is too smiliar or too different compared to my existing wardrobe, either way has appeal. The only type of set accessory I would avoid is one I already own an exact copy of, but I own so much stuff, I feel like that'd be a tedious requirement. If you're feeling thorough, here's a big album of my existing matching, non-basic items.

https://imgur.com/a/N8fy1C4

I sometimes skipped buying matching headwear because I'd have to wear hairpieces to balance the volume, so it would get used too rarely for the price. But of course I wish I owned that fancy headwear. For day-to-day, I've been noticing I like tulle headdresses (I have black, burgundy, and lav so far), dangly hairclips (I got every color of Baby's Fallin' Ribbon Ribbon clips), and braclets. I don't have any silver or bronze bracelets, so that would be a great find. Cat stuff that goes with my Meta Cat Print Lace Up JSK would be great.

For the kumyas, there's not anything I've been searching for, only things I passed up because they were pricy (White Rabbit Costume, Hawase Embroidery, Love Heart Embroidery), so I don't want to transfer that financial pressure onto you. If one of y'all is crafty, a duck/chick outfit or a yellow one in general for the kumyas could be cute. But I'm happy with anything, so no stress!
>>
>>10889501
oh wow, thank you! i hope you had the collages already on hand and didn’t spend all that time just for SS, but they’re super appreciated and will help me not double buy an item you already own. so excited to put together your gift!
>>
>>10889518
well, making the collages is fun for me, but i don't want to overwhelm you. if there is anything else you'd like to see or know, please ask. happy shopping!
>>
I really wanted to participate this year. Have fun, gulls, maybe I'll be able to join you one day.
>>
hi #8425 :)
you mentioned sax- what colors would you normally wear sax with? also what other colors are in your wardrobe?
also, do you have a CD player?
>>
>>10889981
I wear a lot of navy, red/wine/bordeaux, white, and grey (but almost never black), but i'm wanting sax socks because some of my prints that have sax accent colors (cool tone sax rather than minty sax, think baby/moitie's kind of robins egg, though i can make more pastel shades work), and it's the one color i don't have any non print socks for. i'm not super picky about them, just wanting something versatile! i don't wear gingham stuff though, just as a heads up-- most of my taste in sweet is solids and florals.

(also, i forgot to mention this on my form, but if you can't find any socks, i've also had a wicked need for red accessories of any kind! most of mine are dark red, so some bright or mid tone reds would be useful! square headdresses, bows, headbands, bonnets, hair ties/scrunchie i will take any solid red/red with white lace accessories)

also i do not! the one in my car stopped working recently :(. i have a turntable, cassette player, 8-track, and minidisc, but no CD player currently. however that has not stopped me from buying cds for collecting! they're very easy to back up for digital copies, and often have neat art, so i would not be unhappy with cds!

hope this helps! i wasn't as detailed with my form as some others so i'm happy to clarify anything.
>>
>>10890011
this is super helpful, thanks!
>>
!!! #6311 !!!
I know you're allergic to shellfish but would you appreciate a mermaidy/seashell themed accessory?
>>
>>10890053
Hello Santa anon! 6311 here.
I have two dresses that it would compliment perfectly, it's a theme in my wardrobe I would definitely like to expand on past the usual toy and animal prints I gravitate towards.

>>10889324
I'm always excited to try new varieties of tea and sweets! Thank you sm for checking in.
>>
#5986,

Are your ears pierced?
>>
>>10890555
they are not, sorry. i typically don't wear clip-ons either, as they hurt my ears with extended wear.

let me know if you have any other questions! i've been worried i gave too little information on my form and wishlist.
>>
>>10890579
No problem! If you have some more info about more general items you're interested in for the 75 tier, I'd appreciate it. I've been hunting for the wishlist items, but they seem to be on the rare side, and I don't want to disappoint by going off-list. I've seen some sweet jewelry that caught my eye, but it wasn't the exact series listed on your wishlist, so I was afraid you might already own it. I'm open to any advice!
>>
I've got all the gifts ordered, now it's time to wait for them to arrive.
>>
#7707,
Do you have stickers of your OCs?
>>
>>10891264
Hi anon, I do not have any!

the items I bought for my giftee came in, I’m so excited to package them up and send them out… I’ll probably wait until after thanksgiving but ahhh!! she is gonna get so spoiled

#6311,
How would you feel about getting tea that’s beyond the best before date…?
>>
>>10888832
I keep seeing people say they're excited to spoil their match and it just makes me feel sad that I'm a poor grad student and can't do the same for mine. :,(
>>
>>10892109
thats why you go down a tier from what youre comfortable spending, so you can still spoil them within your budget
>>
>>10892117
no. why can't giving and receiving gifts from strangers within a specific budget be enough?
>>
>>10892132
It is, nobody expects to be spoiled, but being sour about people who are excited to spoil their matches feels very against the holiday spirit. Let people who want to go above and beyond do that, sometimes their giftee was just easy to shop for and they find a lot and sometimes they just enjoy finding gifts and want to find more, so why not allow that?
I’ve been joining this event for six or seven years and I’ve gotten great gifts that were in budget and shirts gifts that went way over. Stop whining about how sad you feel that you can’t spoil your match and just follow the rules and you’ll be fine, and leave the anons who want to spoil their giftees alone because that’s not against the rules either.
>>
>>10892132
you sound like a grinch. please stop projecting your weird inferiority complex onto people who are trying to be nice to each other during the only time of year CGL users can be convinced to be nice.

if you don't like the culture of spoiling matches and deriving joy from giving gifts you probably just shouldn't participate. i joined the grinch squad because i actually enjoy giving things to others while expecting nothing in return, not because i just wanted a present and am begrudgingly willing to send out the bare minimum to qualify for it.

i suspect a lot of santa's here joined for similar reasons, and i suspect people whining about others going over budget are probably the same people giving out the cheapest most generic pocky-and-a-sticker presents to their matches.
>>
>>10892117
I chose the $20 tier; I can't really go lower than that.

>>10892160
I'm not being sour about it, I just said I'm sad that I don't have the resources to do the same.
>>
>>10892457
Card tier! Last year I was really strapped for cash, but I spent about $20 on gifts for my giftee and they were really excited!!

Budgeting can also go a long way. Squirreling $5 away every now and again in a place you don't access often can really add up!

You could also try handmade gifts with things you might have laying around.

Ultimately though, you don't have to spoil your giftee. $20 is the minimum, if you spend that amount you've done all you need to & shouldn't feel bad about it!
>>
>>10892185
there are literally less than 30 participants. calm tf down.
>>
>>10892647
with this attitude i see why
>>
>>10892457
It's OK anon, I'll still appreciate whatever you got me! if you made a nice card and put love into it then that's what's important!
>>
>>10892720
anon needs to calm down and stop accusing people of random things. she's the attitude here.
>>
Waiting for one last item to arrive at my SS... I hope my giftee won't be disappointed in their gift.
>>
Shipped out my cards and present today!
>>
>>10889095
8425: when you say black wrist cuffs, do you specifically want all black, or would white with black ribbons work?
>>
To 6737!
I just ordered your gift and it should be coming from Germany! I’m US based so I decided to ship directly to ya and then send a card from me.

SO if you receive a strange box from a random German address that you are not expecting… please go ahead and assume it’s from me <3
>>
Since my santa hasn´t mentioned my id, I hope everything is going alright and I wasn´t too confusing in my form.

Anyways, my order arrived; is it too early to send it out? My cards are also ready.
>>
>>10893014
I think you’re asking me since you responded to my post, but I’m 5369. If you are asking me I’d prefer all black so I can wear them with my gothic pieces as well as my sweet but black with white would still be okay since I can definitely also use them!
>>
>>10893014
dyslexia got me, thank you! i can definitely do that! i've almost got all your presents together and wanted to get one last thing from your wish list. i'm so excited to get this mailed out!
>>
>>10893139
>is it too early to send it out?
The earlier the better imo. The closer to the holiday season you send, the more you risk your parcels getting delayed or lost. If your giftees happen to receive their presents early, they can always wait to open until Christmas!
>>
Hey 3460, do you prefer more traditional holiday snacks like chocolates and tea or more weird unique snacks? Do you have any flavors you don´t like?
>>
>>10890011
wanted to let you know that your stuff arrived:)
if all goes as planned, i'll have it in the mail next week.
really hope you like it/ get some use out of it!
>>
>>10893399
thank you anon! i'm very excited
>>
3157!! Your gift for me has arrived!! I am gonna hold off on opening it, but when i shook it there was a very exciting noise so im looking forward to seeing whats in it!
>>
>>10893717
Wow that was fast! There are german cookies in it but they are shelf stable until april of next year.
>>
>>10893743
Ooh!!! Yum!! Yes that is so awesome!! My oma is german so i am certain i know the brand and will cry when i open the box lol. I am bursting with excitement

We are now in the final full week before the shipping deadline!
I want to remind everyone that you have to send proof of shipping to us when you ship your gifts and cards!
>>
I think a gift/card already arrived to me!
Are we posting on/after christmas or whenever?
>>
>>10894650
I'll keep my presents unopened until Christmas, so I can get that Hallmark movie experience, but I've seen people open and post theirs early in past threads. TL;DR, do as you wish!
>>
>>10893105
Thank you, I'll keep a look out! <3 I've been really slow with watching cgl and my mails, sorry.

#4894, i'm planning on sending your package out tomorrow!
>>
7169 and 2185, I had a shipment take longer than expected getting to my shopping service so your gifts will be a couple days late getting out but everything is on the way to me now! I’ve also let the organizer know. I’m very excited about everything I got for you both and I’m so sorry about the delay!

Hello again #2097
I emailed the organizers earlier this week with your tracking number. I made the trip to the post office this afternoon to drop off your parcel, it's officially on the way! I believe you'll be able to see the tracking updates once it has been scanned in at the regional center.
>>
>>10894982
#7169 here, no worries at all; thanks for the update and I can't wait to see what you send!
>>
#6311 and #8425 I have shipped and asked Santa to pass on tracking numbers to you!
>>
>>10894982
hey this is 2185, no worries!!
i appreciate the effort you're putting into it, i'm sure i'll love whatever you send:)
>>
>>10894983
Thank you so much! My apartment has package lockers, so it will be safe. I plan on waiting until Christmas Day to open my gifts. Super excited!
>>
Hello 1066, this is your Santa letting you know that I finally have all your gifts ready, but I've sadly fallen to fever one day before the shipping deadline, so I'll have a bit of a delay in terms of shipping. I've also let the organisers know! I'm so sorry for this delay!
>>
I have a question for #4279 and #1845, can you eat things produced at the same factory that handles the things you can't eat?
>>
>>10895435
#1845 here and that would be ok.
>>
>>10894965
#4894, sorry to be a bother, but can you confirm that your package arrived to you? no need to open it immediately if you want to save it, just wanted to make sure it didn't get stolen. thank you so much!
>>
>>10895332
Thanks for the update, please get well soon!
>>
>>10895435
Heya!! 4279 checking in!! I absolutely can eat things from factories that handle peanuts, & I can have things like walnuts, almonds, cashews, etc. It's just things that have peanuts as a direct ingredient that I cant have. Thank you for asking!!
>>
>>10889089
Anon, I think if they get all brando, even if it's just one item, that it counts.

Shipped via FedEx. Feel free to take them out of the FedEx boxes, they are wrapped up inside. I tacked the greeting cards on with a little washi tape.

#8425 here! got my gift the other day, just got time to take pictures. decided not to wait for christmas because i am impatient. Not pictured: candy! i shamelessly ate all of it before remembering to take the picture.

i'm super super happy! I was in the lowest tier, but still got both of the items i put on my wish list and a nice notebook! the candy was delicious too, and the socks are literally PERFECT for the coord i needed them for! the combs are also the perfect shade of red i was missing! i feel so spoiled and couldn't be happier. thank you so much anon!
>>
>>10896058
i’m so glad you like them!! i was worried the red would be too dark but i’m really happy to hear it’s the right shade. and i’m so glad the socks will help complete your coord!
you’re super welcome, hope you get lots of use out of them:)
>>
I don't know if you're participating this year, but to my Santa from last year (#2111): I sent you a gift but I just realized there's a chance of it getting hit with a customs fee. I'm putting a contact in the field so if you do get charged, just confirm it's you and I'll pay you back. Sorry for being a retard. It should count as a gift though so it might be okay.

$150 tier gift, from 4894 to 5369.
Thank you so, so much anon! You really understood my taste so well and got such a cool spread of brands for me. I don’t have any other Algonquins pieces in my wardrobe so it’s exciting to add another iconic brand! I’m especially thrilled with the jacket, I’ve been really into tartan lately. And I’m so in love with the Putumayo OP!! I immediately put it on for the rest of the night. Any clue where the mini hat is from? I couldn’t find a tag on it but it’s so cute, I’m looking forward to coording it. Also the lamb jewelry!! I’ve been eyeing it for so long and meaning to buy it, so I’m very happy to have it. The wigs are super cute too, they really scratch that 2013 fairy kei itch. The CL rosette is just perfect, I love that vibrant shade of blue! And I’m not sure if you made the little cat but I adore him.
Lastly, thank you so much for the Evangeline drawing! She means so much to me as a character and your drawing is so beautiful, I really love it.
I’ve gotten grinched the past two years and decided if this year didn’t work out I wouldn’t join again but this was just the way to get me back to having a positive outlook about it, so genuinely thank you so much!

#1845, I got the gift I sent you in return, so I will have to resend it. I have no idea what went wrong though, they didn't give any reason, so I just hope it doesn't happen again. I'm sorry it's arriving so late.

#8425 and #4279, I talk about what's in the gifts in the card, so if you don't want to have the gifts spoiled, you should wait with reading it until after you have opened the gifts.
(How will you know it's from me, though)

>>10896346
the lamb jewelry and the kitty are especially adorable!

Hi 2097, from 5986: I wanted to let you know that your second gift, which was scheduled to arrive in time to ship to you by Christmas, has now been put on hold by DHL. I’m doing everything I can to find out what’s going on and when I can expect it to arrive, and I’ll ship it out via UPS Express as soon as I have it in hand.

The gift that’s already delivered to you fits within the $75 tier, but it’s on the lower end in value. If you open it and are disappointed, my deepest apologies to you; there is one more gift coming, and I’m so sorry that I couldn’t get it to you by Christmas. I hope you have a lovely holidays regardless, and I’ll update the organizer as soon as I have the second tracking number.

Hi 2464! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you very much for the gifts you got me. I can feel you put a lot of thought into it.

The jacket is just perfect, and I can see myself using the muffler daily now that the weather’s gotten colder. I immediately opened the snacks to share with my family, and we all agree you have good taste haha.

Thank you again~ I hope you have a wonderfully cozy holiday season!

I’m glad you like them! I felt like I hit the jackpot when I found the jacket you had on your wishlist right away! I’m glad you like the snacks as well!

Thank you #4279 and Natasha (no number given) for the lovely gifts and card, respectively!

4279, you're so sweet! you really spoiled me this year. I spend most of Christmas Eve arguing with my family so this was a really lovely gift to receive. I love the very salty (lol) choice of little buddy you sent me as well. The cardigan is perfect, it matches one of my newer JSKs really well so I can't wait to wear it soon!

And Natasha your card was so lovely, if you wrote your santa number on the envelope, I'm an idiot and recycled it. I'll definitely send you a message really soon!

Please do not worry. I'm already so happy to receive these kind gifts from you! I'm excited to coord these accessories with some of my favorite dresses. Thank you so much for hunting down the pieces I've been wishing for. They're all perfect. I love your gift! I hope the shipping company treats you well and doesn't sour your own holidays. Merry Christmas, Santa!

Santa 6311, thank you for the thoughtful gifts! I'm a lonelita, so I agree - it's wonderful to be able to participate in the /cgl/ Secret Santa. My state has passed policy phasing out plastic shopping bags, so this market bag will be getting plenty of use. The face towel is so cute, I will definitely be using it in my decor. And the pink Hawase set for my Kumyas is perfect. It will go with many of my pink dresses. I'm afraid that the Hawase cut wouldn't suit me, so I'm happy that I can still enjoy it vicariously through my Kumyas. They are supermodels, so everything looks good on them. I hope your holidays are as happy as you've made mine. Merry Christmas!

I'm so happy that you liked everything! It was lots of fun finding gifts for you. I miss the 2013 fairy kei era and the dark Jfashion of the time so much so it was really nice to see someone with such a great wardrobe for them! When I received the lamb jewelry it was so cute that I want to buy them for myself too! Spoiling my giftees always comes first, but maybe next haul... I wish I were good enough to make the little cat, but I actually bought it from a local artist who makes lots of these cute little handmade cats. I knew I had to include one!

I'm sorry to hear that you were grinched the last two times. I'm so glad this was a positive experience with secret santa for you! It's my favorite event of the year, I love going all out for it, and I want it to bring the same joy to other gulls too. Happy holidays!

Heya!! I think I received this gift, but the name on it isn't mine (though the address is!!)
Can you double-check with the hosts to make sure this went to the right person? If it did & I received it, thank you!!! that is so thoughtful & I will open it right away!!
>>
8425 here, received card from 1066! WOW. you went nuts! both of my cards were insane, i hope my matches aren't too disappointed.

the cardigan is gorgeous and a perfect muted shade! it fits great too, and it's absolutely perfect for my wardrobe. the bows are also wonderful! they're a great mid shade between the dark reds i had and the bright ones i got from another match! i'll definitely get tons of mileage out of these. the stationary and candy also really excited me, i actually don't own this baby letter set yet!

also you must've paid a fortune to send this overseas, all for card tier. thank you so much anon, you're the best!
>>
>>10897203
and a double post for my other card tier. this one didn't have a number on it, and i don't want to out you, so thank you "C"!

the tea and candies (not pictured) were delicious! and the washi tape is soo cute, some of these are really old prints! i feel so lucky to get them. the pens are also great, i think i may use them to try and color some traditional sketches. and again, shout out to overseas matches for paying shipping on card tiers. thank you so much!

Included in the gift was everything to make except the eggs/sour cream (unshippable).

Santa #3157, thank you so much!!! I know we've already spoken in DMs about this, but Im so grateful for this gift. I've been hunting for this necklace for so long, thank you for spoiling me!!! I've already worn it with a few coordinates since it arrived. Your letter also made me laugh, and I did have some borsch as per your recommendation. Thank you for making this holiday season so incredible, Merry christmas!!!

>>10896752
I am so, so happy you like everything!! I can absolutely relate on the arguing front lol, christmas is always a pretty tumultuous time of year so im really pleased I could make things a little better!! In all honesty I just kept finding things I thought you might like & I couldn't help myself lol. Merry Christmas!!

>>10897264
Oh, you are just the sweetest!!! I will open it asap. Thank you so, so much for sending me a card in return this year!! Is your address from last year still the same? Would you mind if I sent one back?

$20 tier, from 8425 to 5369.
Wow anon, you really spoiled me!! I was so surprised when I got such a big box, thinking “this can’t possibly be my $20 gift but I already got my high tier gift so it must be…” and I was even more surprised when I opened it. The Milklim shirts are really nice to add to my wardrobe, thank you so much for those! The Magical collab is actually one of my favorites, and it’s probably the last good print series Milklim did before they turned into Taobao resellers. I was actually wearing another shirt from the collab when I opened the package, so trust that I’ll get plenty of use out of the tops! The wristcuffs are really lovely, and I’ll honestly probably keep the pink ribbons on them since I have some black pieces with pastel details.
As for the Negima items, I actually already had the Ala Alba pin, but it was an item I specifically wanted a second of so I could have one to wear and one for my collection, so I’m really happy to have another now! And the Evangeline figure!!! I’ve wanted her since I was in high school around 2008, but I kept putting off buying her so you’ve fulfilled a 15 year old dream of mine. Thank you so, so much, I’m so happy to have her after all this time! This was one of my top most wanted pieces of Eva merch, I feel so spoiled.
As an aside, your stationery is beautiful. Thank you again for everything, and happy holidays!
>>
>>10897329
i'm so glad!! i reread your preferences after getting the figure and was worried it would be one you already had, so i'm so glad it ended up being a dream item! i'm also so happy to see those milklim items go to a loving home, they've been neglected too long. happy holidays!!

Hi, 9406 here, Happy New Year! My gift arrived, I was suprised how close by it came from haha. Anyways thanks for everything, I definitely can make use of this Meta cutsew and appreciate you got me bug-mushroom themed stuff. Also I haven´t really bought any fancier accessories for myself as I tend to cheap out so it´s nice to have the brooch!

I didn´t see your # number anywhere but I hope organizer can tell that I got your gift.

#7169 here. i got my package today from #5369!

when the first thing i unwrapped was the innocent world blouse, i knew the rest of the package was going to be amazing. i'm shocked at the condition of the cat print skirt, btw; the screen printing is still pristine! i love it so much, it's adorable. and the accessories are of course perfect and match with so much in wardrobe. the little shirley temple bag is so fun--i love velvet--and the head pieces are exactly the type old school classic and sweet pieces i've been searching for. thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts!

(excuse any cat hair, my cat immediately wanted to sit on the gifts lol)

$75 Tier - From 2097 to 5986
Hi 2097,
My apologies for the late post - it’s been such a crazy holiday season, and I ended traveling unexpectedly for a few days after Christmas. I did get to open your gift on Christmas morning itself, though, and it was so incredibly special. You really spoiled me; thank you so, so much! The box and packaging was so beautifully done, and the card was so sweet. I could not be more thrilled with my gifts, and have not been able to stop thinking about the La Luice cat bag (that’s so cute that our bags are twins!). It’s such a gorgeous bag, and will coordinate so well with both my cat-themed coords and old school pieces. The Moitie choker is gorgeous as well, and will be a lovely addition to my collection; you’ve filled a hole in my wardrobe for a choker with a cross charm!
As for the extras, the La Luice rabbit bag charm is so, so cute - I’ve clipped it to my favorite black bag, and just looking down at it makes me smile. It’s such a cute way to add extra flair to my purse! The decals are absolutely stunning as well, and now have made a lovely home in my office. Thank you for the air freshener and tape too! Christmas is my favorite season, and it passed by far too quickly this year, so it’s great to have the balsam scent to satisfy my post-Christmas blues.
Thank you so much for spoiling me like this and making it such a lovely Christmas! I am so incredibly appreciative; your gift was so sweet and thoughtful, and you really made my season brighter.
>>
Thank you #5369! The package arrived safe & sound. thank you so much, you really spoiled me!!!
So cool that you’re into cult party kei. I admire/ appreciate cpk since there’s a lot of overlap with dolly (I was lucky enough to nab a headdress from Virgin Mary before they closed last year </3).
Love the LaLuice bag, and the Verum tights are so cute! It has animals drawn in an ornate / antique kind of way which I love. Both of these gifts will blend into my closet so nicely—thanks a million! Hope you had a great New Year’s:)
(Also the gift wrap you chose is super cute)

>>10897971
I'm glad that my gift reached you safely and brought you some joy. I have the bunny crossbody bag in white, and I think it's great - it fits so much more than my other animal bags, and the lace layers are so pretty - I knew I had to get you the cat backpack as soon as I saw it on your wishlist. I chose white so that you can do both all-pastel coords as well as contrasting black x white coords, but I got the black bunny charm so you can have a little something even for fully kuro coords. I hope you and your kitty bag will have some nice adventures together in the new year. Happy holidays, and thank you for participating in the Secret Santa!

The gift I sent to you is finally out for delivery, and I should have said this earlier, but the letter contains spoilers for what's in the gifts! The card however you can read whenever. Both are in the same envelope, but the letter should be folded so you don't accidentally read it when you take it out of the envelope.

#7169, thank you for such a wonderful gift! Everything is beautiful and I can already think of a bunch of coords I'll be wearing with these. We both got into lolita at the best time, if I may say so myself! And don't worry, I totally understand with how weird sweet prices can be sometimes nowadays.

I can't wait to steam it and wear it out and about right away. Thank you for your generous gift - you are too kind! I especially love how the adorable kumyas in the print are having fun together like us gulls in the secret santa event. Thank you so much for making my holidays extra special this year. I hope you have a fantastic new year.

The salty licorice is growing on me but that first piece was a bit of a shock.

>>10898378
I'm really excited that I hit so well with the teacup! I was actually a bit worried that you already had it, but you having looked for it without having it really was the best possible outcome! I hope you have a great 2024!

To #6311- I just got home and opened my gift and wow did you go above and beyond! I’ll take pictures tomorrow since it’s late and it’s dark but I wanted to let you know ASAP that it arrived safely and I opened it since I was out of town and couldn’t open it earlier! Thank you so much!
>>
May I ask Secret/organizer, how many are still waiting on their gifts and cards? I haven´t seen mine recieved and my card is also not here but I understand it´s been busy times for post and people.
>>
I’m back with photos as promised!
Santa, you went above and beyond and truly spoiled me! And you also have a great sense of my style!
I love that the curses has chiffon sleeves so I can wear long sleeves without getting too hot (it’s hot here most of the year now) and the cardigan is perfect for when it’s cool enough for another layer but warm enough not to need a wool cardigan. The necklace is one I’ve considered several times but never pulled the trigger, so it was amazing to get! And the headpiece is perfect for pink and black coords! I mainly have monotone headpieces so this will get me to step out of my comfort zone! And I love the Hello Kitty x Sailor Moon collab too so it was great to get those items too!
Last year I got grinched and I wasn’t sure about participating this year, but you really brought back my faith in the exchange! I hope you had an amazing holiday and have an amazing year!

I made the mistake of opening my card first and knew immediately what you had found! Polkadot duck (specifically in blue) was one of my first dream items and I always ended up missing it so she will be treasured alongside my other ducks. The Meta socks are also perfect and a style I had actually been debating getting so another great choice. And of course staying on theme with the FlowerKnows swan collection and your comment made me laugh, I also LOVE this lip formula! Thank you so much for everything it is all perfect and I really appreciate it!!

From #7707 to #1066, $20 tier

Finally, after watching the local post spending almost two weeks to get the package through customs and having it sent out, I finally received my $20 gift today.

And thank you for the gift! The tea looks really interesting, and I'm excited to try it and develop a greater knowledge of what different teas exist! I was a bit worried that the teas in the cans were teas I already had, but I smelled them and they smell different.
The stroopwafels are really good, I've already eaten multiple, I just need to ration the rest a bit now so I'll have them for a while and not run out too quickly.
Also, thank you for the wrist cuffs! Them being home made was a surprise to me, their quality looks really good! Now I really need to hurry up and get a black and white main piece so I can use them, I was looking at Kumya's Love Heart Embroidery not too long ago but decided against it, but now I'm thinking I should have bought it when I had the chance, but I know there will be other opportunities.

I also liked the Usakumya drawing!

Thank you for everything, and I hope you have a great year!

Giftee #9140 reporting in!

I love love love this exchange and this year was amazing!
The first card was drawn based on my own cosplays!!!?? Immediately fridgeworthy. We’re also cardmates, so I hope you like yours!

The second card was more like a gift and it had the entire room rolling with laughter when I opened it. Tea, stickers, a yearning love letter written by my Husbando Jace from magic the gathering. What more could a girl ask for??
The gift ($45 tier) is incredible! You spoiled me! I’ve always had my eyes on bodyline shoes but never bit the bullet! Both the bow and the beret fit my wardrobe gorgeously and I cannot wait to put together some fun coords! Get ready for chocolate Lolita 2024

Card match from 9406 to 6311

Thank you for the sweet handmade card and beautiful postcard !!! I I've already put it in a small frame and hung it up with the rest of my collection. I love Miffy and your illustration of her in a cute lolita coat is super cute and thoughtful. I hope you had a lovely holiday season

Card match from 4279 to 6311

My goodness anon! You spoiled me above and beyond what I was expecting for card tier!!! The lookbook is one that I do not have, and the cookie ring will go nicely with so many of my coords. Thank you for sharing thw window cookie recipe, I love to bake and look forward to trying it out very soon, finally wrapping up the busy season at my work. Also your handwriting is lovely, and the drawings you included of my favorite characters and doggo are perfect. Wishing you the best in the new year!

$45 gift tier from 5756 to 6311

I can't thank you enough for such a wonderfully thoughtful gift! The individually wrapped presents and ribbon made it even more special. It's taken all my efforts not to have indulged in the tea and the candy bar already, as it took me until now to take photos. The sleepy bunny pin is super cute. The pop up card is absolutely darling, and I was quite surprised to see so many postcards! I didn't even realize there were more than one until I removed the plastic sleeve for photos, and I love them all. I can't believe you even found the candy ring from my wishlist! Your gift indeed was magic, and I hope you holidays were full of joy

9140 again! Tysm 6311 for the gorgeous wrist cuffs. They give me Italian carnival vibes and I have just the jsk in mind for them!

And my second $45 tier is in. cred. i. ble. The skirt is so cute! I actually have this axes femme print as a jsk but no I have the skirt too?? Amazing. The 6% doki doki shirt is such a nice thick t shirt fabric. And it should go so well with my ACDC Rag skirts! Candy is always appreciated and then I’ll never get over the giant microbes. A little common cold and a little dna?? I’ve never been so happy to receive a virus.

I’m so glad you like everything!! I was also pleasantly surprised at how crisp the screen print still is. I’m really happy that the jabot matches something you have! I thought it was so cute. Happy holidays!

I’m happy you like the tights and bag! I wasn’t sure how big the bag was going to be so I was a bit surprised when it was as large as it was, but hopefully that means you can get some use out of it! Verum’s legwear designs are so beautiful and I had a hard time deciding which to go with so I’m glad I made a good choice. Hope you also had a happy new year!

I'm really glad you like everything and that the gifts arrived safely! I hope you have a great year too, that the tea may be delicious to you as well and that you'll get lots of wear out of the cuffs :)

I just made my first cup of tea from the tea that you sent me! It's the darker can tea.

Actually I didn't notice all your explanations of the teas until the next day after I'd already posted the photo, but they make me appreciate it all that much more! There being real explanation that can actually educate me on what the different teas are too!
>>
>>10900208
Aww, this warms my heart anon! I'm a huge nerd about tea so I was honestly really hyped once I saw you were into different teas and learning about them. The Tieguanyin specifically comes from my personal collection, I drink it every day and it's a high quality harvest!

??? to #7707
Tier: $20

Your gift to me arrived last week, and I'm really happy about it! The mymelo and kuromi pins are absolutely adorable, I love the little bit of lace they have at the back. The Miku charm is really cute too! Thank you so much!
>>
I am sorry for taking so long in posting my photos!! The holiday season has kept me a busy bee.
Santa #4279, you really surprised me!!! I wasn't expecting this much from a card tier! Thank you so, so much!! The wrapping was so lovely, and the candy was delicious-- especially the fruit gummies!! I think you fit the gifting theme you were going for perfectly. Getting this sweater was so funny, I was actually debating buying the listing myself for about a week, I'm so happy to have received it! I hope shipping wasn't too expensive from where you're located. I hope you had a great christmas!!

I received this package a little bit ago, but I'm posting it now!

I am so glad you liked last year's gift so much, it was so so sweet of you to pass it on again!! This really made my day. The chocolate was really good, I've never had any with sea salt before but I really ended up liking it (and tracking it down locally afterwards because it was so good). Thank you again for spoiling me in return!! It would be fun to return the favor next christmas as well.

>>10899360
I am so glad your gift arrived safely!! I was worried that the lookbook might have been a repeat, so its a relief to know its new to you, & that everything fits your style. The recipe is from my Oma, they're really good & super nostalgic to me for the holidays, so I hope you enjoy them!!!

So did anyone get grinched this year?

We don't think that anyone has been grinched, but there are two people who are still waiting for their gifts, that were sent without tracking. We are still trying to figure some things out before we are ready to contact the grinch squad.

$75 tier to 6311 from 2714

I was so excited to open this when I saw where it originated from. It must have cost a small fortune to post it! I could not believe how many things you were able to include in this gift, it was such a great experience opening it. From the AP gift wrap and washi tapes, to the candy and teas, and the beautiful heart pochette and accessories, you thought of everything! You really know how to shop, santa anon

Thank you for the lavender bows, wristcuffs and socks. I'm happy to have been gifted a brand bag that isn't vinyl or pleather, since they are always so delicate. I love the soft velour material it's made from, and it pairs perfectly with the beautiful twin pearl necklace. You did amazing for not being a sweet lolita, I would not have thought otherwise if you hadn't mentioned it in the card! Now that I've finally taken the photo, I can indulge in the loose-leaf tea and candies. Not pictured...the pineapple candy, I absolutely could not wait to try it and it was delicious!!! We don't have anything quite like it here.
Thank you for the swan lake mirror, hairbrush and cosmetics too. I'll post a photo of the cute bonus item you included when I put it together.

Thank you for spoiling me and making my holiday so special with this thoughtful gift. I hope your holidays were lovely and you're having a great start to the new year

grinch squadder here confirming that i'm still able to do my job if i need to!

>>10901858
Aw yay! Thank you for posting, I was worried it was either lost/ you hated it. Glad to hear you enjoyed the Pineapple Lumps too, I think most people either love them or hate them haha Also very pleased to hear you like the accessories too - and totally agree with the bag, it was a lucky find it was both not something that would disintegrate and also in lavender so I knew I had to snatch it up for you.

Anyways, hope your holidays were good too and you have a wonderful year!

Hello anon, I am deeply sorry it took so long to post this, and I truly do hope that you’ve had a great holiday season and good start to 2024.
Thank you very much for the beautiful gift, everything inside was greatly appreciated and spot on. Funny story about the skirt- I used to own the navy version, and sold it when a friend had it as a wishlist item. The black actually fits my wardrobe much better, and it’s been a delight to have in my wardrobe again. Great work on the seasonal Funassyi items, I opened the package on Christmas and displayed them all on my Christmas tree as long as I could. Did you laser cut the wooden ones?! That’s so cool! The sweets and tea are fantastic too, and the Funassyi artwork is displayed in my room, you must’ve put so much effort into that!
I really do appreciate the kindness and care you put into this gift, and thank you again. Feel free to reach out on insta/ stay in touch!
