Welcome, Monkeys, to the Ridemonkey Secret Santa for 2023!

It's that time of year again!

Given the continued flakiness with the US Postal Service, I am continuing last year's tradition where packages must be postmarked (not delivered) by Christmas Eve. As usual, monkeys in the US and Canada will be eligible to exchange packages. If we receive at least 3 entries from our cheese-eating Europeans, the EURMSS will proceed.

Interested but don't know what to expect? Check out past threads to see discussion and photos of the gifts!

Secret Santa: 2022 | 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014

Rules and Requirements:
  • You must be a Ridemonkey member in the US, Canada or the EU, registered on or before January 1st, 2022.
  • The guideline for spend is typically around $35. Some people do more, that's fine, but this isn't intended to be a cheap crap exchange.
  • Pairing is randomized, and you will not be buying for the person who is buying for you.
  • External packaging must be work safe. Internal packaging is up to you.
  • Tracking numbers must be sent to ridemonkeysecretsanta@gmail.com
  • Failure to send a gift will result in a permanent ban
Safety Requirements:
  • If you are feeling ill, or have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, do not pack or handle the presents. If this delays your package, contact me immediately. We will work something out.
  • People receiving gifts are encouraged to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after opening their gifts.
How To Enter:
In my continued attempts to automate this exchange as much as possible (and reduce pairing errors, like we had in a past year - sorry about that), I have created a form to fill out. Please fill the form out completely; information will be stored safely and will not go to anyone except me. If you have questions about your Elf or Santa, you can still email the standard rmsecretsanta@gmail.com address.

FILL OUT THE FORM HERE: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1HSFB4ymL6qY8PLMfzcJ51zcFu8Q3Srl_aR6tuH3_7tk/

Dates:
  • December 4th: All entrants must have filled out the above form by midnight on December 4th
  • December 6th: All entrants will receive their pairing information
  • December 24th: All packages must be postmarked by midnight on December 24th
Happy holidays!

FYI, we currently do not have enough responses to proceed with the EURMSS so any Euro monkeys might want to reach out if they want their brethren to participate.

Skipping this year. I have enough on my plate.
Unfortunately same here. I'm sitting in the middle of nowhere and am working 12h shifts atm - no time to get at least a bit creative with gifts and packaging, sorry.
And I guess we would end up as a trio once again.

Emails should be sent. Let me know if there are issues/questions!

Sorry @iRider - if you'd like EURMSS to happen this year, you'll have to just buy yourself something nice.

I thought I volunteered. Didn't get any emails. No worries, tho. A little late now. Just want to make sure no one was expecting something from me.

You did, and an email was sent to the address that was provided. I will PM the details to you.
