Secret Santa

I've been sitting here thinking about the Secret Santa that I participated in last year with the D-OC. I had such a great time with it and I thought maybe I'd toss out the idea of doing a Secret Santa with all the D-Mom's & Kids since we have such a nice group going on here. How many D-Moms out there would be interested in participating? Last year we used Elfster and that way everyone got to particpate. You sign up and your name and address is only given to the person that is buying for you. It's computer generated so the computer picks the name and it's done fairly. If I get enough people interested, then we can set a price limit and rules and go from there. many of you out there are interested?

Do you want to shop for the D-Mom & Child? Or just the Child? What price limit? Deadline for it to be in the mail?

My vote is: YES!
Shop for both Mom and Child
$10 for each one
Mailed by Dec 15th to ensure it arrives by the 25th

I'm in!!!!!!!!! This sounds like a totally cool idea :)

The only hang up I have is wondering how siblings would feel if only the D child gets a gift?

Maybe we should just do a $20 gift for the entire family?

Examples might be:

Board Games
Treat Baskets
Dinner in a basket
Photo gifts (using pics taken from blogs)

I think that's a great idea. I am planning on doing another Elfster gift exchange this year. I'm planning on starting the sign-ups tomorrow and then have the sorting begin on December 1, with the deadline for gift delivery on December 24 (like last year). You're more than welcome to join, or start your own!

I'm totally in! What a great idea! I'm flexible - any rules are cool with me! Yea! I'm excited!

Meri said...

I'm in. :)

I like the idea of the group gift, just because I have 3 T1's. Or just a gift for the blogger.

I'm not picky...I'd love to participate in whatever is decided!

Joanne said...

I'm in... whatever you decide is good with me!

I like getting mail.

I like getting presents.

This idea makes me very happy.

I'm in! I was gonna say just do the moms and kids, after all these little ones have been through they deserve to be singled out and get something special...but then I read Meri's comment and I'm not sure how that would work. So I'm up for anything.

Nicole said...

Sounds good to me, whatever everyone decides is great. The only thing is that mailing to me will be more expensive because I'm in Canada. So you can kick me out if you want!

:) Tracie said...

I'll be in too!

This is gonna be fun!

Jill said...

I'm SOOOOO excited now!!! :)

Allison~ Thank you for inviting me back into the D-OC one again :) I had a wonderful time buying for Amy last year and we were thrilled with all the gifts that we got from Melissa. I was trying to arrange an exchange between all of us Moms with kids with diabetes. Thanks again for including me :)

Wendy....great idea! I wasn't even thinking about siblings or in Meri's case...3 T1's!! I think the family gift would be a great idea. Then I guess, depending on whose name you get, then you can choose to do something else. Does that make sense?

I'll go set up the exchange and then post all the info :) I'm so excited!!!!

I'm in I think it is a great idea. Not only for the Mom's but for the kids too. I know my daughter Kaitlyn age 13(T1 for 1 1/2 yrs) would probably like to help me shop.
