I’m trying again this year with the Online Secret Santa. Last year’s effort didn’t turn out that great. I didn’t receive a gift and the one I sent turned out to be a non-deliverable address. Oh well! I wasn’t out anything, but I didn’t get a gift either.
The way it works is you sign up at the Secret Santa 2005 Site and give a short description of yourself and a link to your site/blog if you’ve got one. You also provide a link to your Amazon Wish List so your Secret Santa knows what to get you. Your info then goes into the pot and the Secret Santa elves draw names and distribute them to people. You buy a gift for a stranger, and you (hopefully) get one in return. They ask that you have a few items on your Amazon wish list that are under $15 dollars just to keep things inexpensive.
Give it a try… hopefully it’ll actually work for me this year. If you get my name, I still want an Audi TT Roadster (silver), since I didn’t get it last year.
