    Cool!
    I'm going to try to turn around the pairing more quickly this year so I can give people an extra few days to do the shopping etc....

    One request to be added to the requirements, can we have people indicate if they are over 21 or not? I know there have been some alcohol related gifts passed before and I think it's only prudent to make sure if they are considered that the recipient is of legal age to consume them.

    Agreed.

    Shipping beer to a minor might not be a good idea.

    PS I will send an email in as soon as I have a wish list.

    I edited the original post to make sure people include their age!!!!!


    Good idea people!


    PS. I only ask for contact phone numbers so I can discuss tracking gifts should they be delayed etc. That personal info is not passed on to the SANTA's FYI!!!!!!!!!!

    A wish list just seems so impersonal. Where is the thought when you just look at what the elf wants on a list & order it online?
    It may not be that way though. I have never done the SS.

    If I sign up I am not going to make a wishlist. :D

    I just used the wishlist as a starting point. I bought 1 item from the list that was about half of the budget and threw in a couple of extras of my choosing last year to bring it up to budget.
