The Official Atari Age Secret Santa 2018 thread

Recommended Posts

You can always be a bit vague in the customs declaration: "Candy, vintage games memorabilia" or something like that. While the recipient will get a rough idea what to expect, it seems like at least 80% of the previous Secret Santa packages match that declaration anyway.

Ah-HA!!!! Had a breakthrough last night on the perfect (maybe?) gift. I almost shot out of bed at 1am with a "Eureka"!

 

Good thing I didn't. Takes an hour to get the kids back to sleep.

 

Hehe... There's a certain satisfaction knowing yer giving the right thing to someone, right?

Whatever you write on the declaration, don't just put "Gift" in text and check the box for gift. Customs don't really like such packages, I've received some and had to send in documentation what ought to be in the box in order to get it delivered.

Damn it to hell! I've had a very busy year and forgot totally about this. Now it's too late to sign up. :(

 

Please keep me in mind for a alt. Can't believe I missed this by a week.

Waiting for piece de resistance and some filler stuff, before I'm ready to ship.

Me too. Items have been shipped to me, just waiting for them to arrive before wrapping and sending to the lucky recipient.

Forgot to grab an all-important roll of paper.

 

Mine will be going out Monday after I get all the pieces wrapped. :)

Shopping for SS is fun. My recipient had some preferences regarding treats that I'm trying to match if possible. So far I've been to 6 major stores of different brands, and none had a single item like that. However I know a 7th store that sells, so I might buy it from them if I can't find any more alternatives. I thought it would be child's play to find the type of item, but it turns out to be a hen's tooth instead.

Me too, the exact same thing. I may have to order the treat online. i thought I was done ... but SS keeps pulling me back in!

You are assuming that no child has ever played with a hen's tooth. :P :grin:
