The holidays are just around the corner as Blackdeath brought up in Episode 33 of the podcast
Doing a Secret Santa project is fun but also slightly scary where privacy is a concern. Thankfully there's a great way with the easiest method via Amazon that I've done in the past!
A few years back I was part of a sizable Secret Santa project where everyone gave their list to the Head Elf and the Elf would decide who you got and would send you that list in a direct message.
Amazon keeps the address hidden so the only people who see the list is you, Amazon and third party sellers. The buyer of the gifts has no clue as to your irl name or address.
We did keep a price cap at around $50 bucks but honestly most people just put in $5-20 dollar items in their list since there's tons of fun things in that price range and it wasn't meant to be fancy, just fun and exciting to be getting a secret present from a secret santa!
Making the list is the hardest part and that's pretty dang easy as long as you remember the important parts.
I've added a little set of pics to show how to set it up in 9 easy steps!!!
Annnnnnd that's all there is to it!
Aside from buying something for the person that the Elf designates to you.
So that's how I've done the Secret Santa Project via Amazon list in the past.
Figured it'd be easiest for everyone as everyone has Amazon (except Australians I think, they're upside down anyway)
What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?!

Last year's Sweepstakes details if you're unfamiliar https://www.over30cl...prizes-prizes/
Short and sweet behind this idea was the more folks who enter the sweepstakes the more winners, more prizes, and larger prizes unlock. Last year a member won a $300 shopping spree for his kids at Gamestop. Details of last year's event in the above link.
