PostGRcade Secret Santa 2023 - Reveals Pg13

Hello and welcome to the 15th (might be wrong but could only see 2008 as the first one) annual GRcade Secret Santa thread for 2023 hosted for the fifth time by yours truly JChalmers! Let’s be honest, the Secret Santa thread is the best thread of the year on these forums and it really brings the whole forum together, I'm sure I'm not the only one that throughout the years has got some really well thought-out gifts at Christmas time from other members.

So gather the masses, get that Christmas cheer and sign up here!

Important stuff -

1) Minimum spend is £10
2) You need to indicate whether or not you are Christmas Day Safe when you give me your address - being 'safe' means that there is no potential embarrassment if a forumite opens up their goodies in front of family. Although we’re all old enough now to not really be worrying about being sent sex toys in the post….
3) Please indicate if you do not wish to buy for anyone in particular - perhaps you've bought for a few people in the past and want someone different, or you may just plain dislike certain people.
4) Please briefly consider whether you genuinely think you can afford / have time for buying and receiving gifts. You can sign up now, but once we reach the address swaps, I can't have people dropping out.
5) If you take part and somehow manage to strawberry float up enormously by not getting a gift to someone, then you'll be cast out like the failure you are (in English, a permaban, Merry Christmas scrooge).

This OP will be updated with entrants. Signing up is all you must do for now, and you have just 2 weeks to do so - the deadline is the end of Sunday 12th November.

I’ll then be asking for addresses and also ask for a small bit from you of your likes and dislikes to help your Secret Santa choose the best gifts for you. These details will need to be in by end of Sunday 19th November and I’ll then share your victim with you on the Monday 20th November.

I’m in - I’ve got more time this year so can spend it to seek out something interesting and not get someone something they already have, and have actually posted about…. Sorry for 2020 Gaminglegend.

Not 'in' but just wanted to apologise again to LewisD for my ungrateful actions all those years ago. The present was so thoughtful and he even gave me something for my birthday as well. It fills me with so much shame, even to this day, that I behaved so ungratefully and childishly. It hurts because I know he really cared a lot to go to such effort and I was just completely awful to him.

One of those bad memories where my actions will haunt me until the day I die, you know.

I'm assuming that's exactly what happened with the original meltdown? If so, strawberry floating hell, even I don't remember it in that much detail :lol:

How can I enjoy this for the first time please? I must have missed it (whatever “it” is) when it originally happened.
