Halforums Secret Santa 2023


Staff member
Ok, it's November. I'll go ahead and get the ball rolling here.

What is it?

It's a Secret Santa gift exchange between your fellow Halforumites. Everyone who signs up will be randomly assigned another participant. You are then tasked to buy that person a gift. As a recipient, you should leave a few hints in a post to this thread (or PM me the information) as to what sort of interests you have.

Who can sign up?

Those who joined the forum on or before January 1, 2023 with more than a handful of posts will be allowed to participate.

To sign up, send me a PM. I will need:
  • your email address
  • shipping address
  • any gift rules/restrictions
  • whether or not you would be willing to ship internationally (including USA to Canada).
  • Be sure to specify whether or not you would accept NSFW or "adult" gifts (such as alcohol/sex themed gifts).

The deadline for signing up will be Monday, November 20, 2023. The following day, you will be randomly assigned to a Secret Santa recipient and will be sent a PM with the information on your giftee. Final deadline for sending the gift is Monday, December 11, 2023.

Price range is whatever you are comfortable with giving. Feel free to spend as much as you want; just be aware that the more you spend, the less likely you will receive a gift of equal value. Homemade/handmade gifts are allowed, and even encouraged (no homemade food, please).

Try to send something you think the other person will like. As much as I can, I will be getting gift ideas/wish lists from the participants so you can send them something suitable.

Once you received your gift, post pictures. Share the joy. But if you don’t like your gift, don’t complain in the forums (especially if you didn’t supply any suggestions). Remember, it’s something somebody picked out for you in particular so don't be a butt about it.

Unless specified by the giftee, do not send NSFW. If I can restrain myself from sending normies something sticky and unsettling, so can you.

Please note that many states/nations have rules about shipping alcohol. When in doubt, choose another gift.

Finally, ship well in advance. Be kind to yourself and the postal workers and ship your stuff by Dec 11th to make sure it arrives before the crazy Christmas rush that always happens at the latter half of December.

If I missed anything or if you have questions, please let me know.

The Calvin and Hobbes collection you got me a bit back is one of the greatest gifts I've received as an adult.
That was honestly mostly good timing. I managed to snag a HELL of a good deal on it at Chapters that brought the price close to the spending limit. I think it was a Black Friday sale.
I can't speak for anybody else, but I personally am absolutely fine with any gift I get, no matter what it is. I'm participating more for the sense of community and togetherness I get from you guys. Last year I got a HF themed Christmas tree ornament, and I was delighted with it even though I don't even have a Christmas tree.

So, basically, I'd say no pressure Nick. If you want to join in and I happen to get you as my Secret Santa, I'd be happy even if you send me a packet of toothpicks.

I didn't mean because it cost what it did, though I was appreciative of that for sure, it was that you took the time to find something the was thoughtful and relevant to me and my interests.
I wish I could, but financially it’s just not feasible this year. I’ve enjoyed this in the past, but we’re still not completely back on solid ground. It’s amazing how much money can be soaked up by medical bills. I’ll enjoy just seeing what everyone shares.

Everyone should have received their Secret Santa recipient via PM at this point. If you signed up and did NOT get one, let me know ASAP please.

If your recipient is international and you need financial assistance with shipping internationally, please send me a PM and I'll get you taken care of.

Happy hunting!
Current obsessions:
Dimension 20
Baldur's Gate 3
Our Flag Means Death
Good Omens
The Elves have forced the Dwarves down into their mines to find something worthy of you, and they have returned with....something. Not sure what it is, but I've been assured it's fit for humans. It's now being transported by Arctic parrots to your location, and should arrive somewhere between December 6th and 11th.
No way to attach a message, unfortunately, so i'm afraid you'll have to disclose all unexpected strange packages arriving at your doorway until then :devil:
