This is a absolutely not a rule.

Feel free to open gifts whenever, everyone. Some people like to wait, some don’t, it vastly differs from family/culture. In previous years we have had anons worried because gifts were delivered and not posted for weeks because the giftee was waiting for Christmas Day, so if your gift arrives but you do not plan on opening it for a while please mention in the thread to ease any Santa’s worries.

>> No.10291930

Because some of us have plans on Christmas or will be out of town/country or don't really celebrate it to begin with.

Seconding Elf-chan. Part of the reason why I open when it arrives is because I don't want my gifter to worry. I've been on the other end of things where my giftee waited until Christmas when my gift arrived to them a few weeks before. They never even mentioned that they had received it until Christmas.

I figure if you're going to wait until Christmas, at least be nice enough to say "Hey, I'm # and I got your package but I'm waiting until Christmas!"

>> No.10291966

#3655, I'm picking up my last item this Sunday and then I'll prepare to ship everything out!

I’m planning on drawing my Santa a card, but that’s only because I’m a fairly decent artist. I never thought to include a note with every item

My family doesn't do filler gifts, so it's not natural to me; but I've seen other families put all the filler gifts into a stocking, so I'd package all the fillers together, though not necessarily into a stocking.

I nicely wrapped all my gifts with gift wrap, tissue and cute Christmas stickers...only to realise my box was a little bit small. So it’s a bit squished now but hopefully still cute and nothing’s fragile. I haven’t wrapped the candy but other fillers are wrapped. What I usually do is two cards - one to be opened first just saying Merry Christmas and another to be opened last explaining my thought process on certain gifts and whatnot. Also everyone needs to include at least one note with the ID and the tier, I think that was mentioned in the rules.

Hey 4264! I still have 2 small fillers arriving (they've been stuck over a month in shipping hell...) but otherwise your gift is all wrapped and ready to go. Would you prefer me to wait for those two things, or ship my gift without them and then send another small parcel when they arrive?

Cream is good too! I'm neutral about brown like I'd have to see the item to know if I like so probably a good idea to avoid it. I know it's still November and you haven't sent it out yet but I'm excited to receive your gift! I'm actually happy we have similar interests haha.

Just a reminder that when you do send your cards (and gifts), don’t forget to snap a quick picture of it and send it to us! It’s a requirement for Whitelist verification, and it’s much easier if we get the proof photos when you ship as opposed to having to hunt you down for them!

Hi, #7458! I have a package I was hoping to ship either today or next week, but it seems like two of the smaller gifts just...haven't come. They are extra filler gifts, but related to your interests. If they ever do turn up, I'll send them over, but it seems not likely at this point, because I bought them way back when we got our matches and I'm in the country they come from. I just wanted to check - would you rather I wait a bit longer or just send the main package now?

>> No.10294120

Oh gosh that sucks, I'm sorry. Since they're extra filler gifts I don't mind if you just go ahead and send what you have and put in a missing item claim for the rest. It's not something you can help.

>> No.10294732

I'm having trouble finding filler gifts for my postcard matches because I want to keep it under $10 so it doesn't leak into the next tier. So far I got local snacks for my international match, which is kind of lame because it's not /cgl/-related, but I guess the card will be, so it's good enough. The other match is from the same country as me, and their description was pretty much just brand-name stuff from japan, so idk what to get. I don't want it to just be random trash.

>> No.10294735

It's a card. Just get them stickers or face masks or something.

>> No.10294754


Oh, oops, I have a feeling I did this -- only signed up for card tier and listed a bunch of my favorite prints. I figured my card match would just use the print to make the card. It's only card tier, I'm not expecting extras.

If you really need fashion-related filler, there's always nail stickers. Although I think it's better if you simple get them small things that suit their interest (like for eg, if they like sweet lolita then sending them pink stickers, sweet-scented tea, pastel keychain, kind of not what they asked for, but things that you think they might enjoy based on what they did ask for)

Have you thought of presenting it/making it look a bit bigger through packaging? Not that it really matters cause size isn't everything! But if you have a big box and it ends up looking only half-filled for example, try wrapping everything up separately? Put smaller filler items in a cutesy box your match could even use themselves, etc

Oops, 5609 here I forgot to check my mail this week with all the Thanksgiving craziness and sure enough it was stuffed in the mailbox.

I really like everything you picked out! I've been desperately needing to pad my wardrobe out with basic accessories so the headdress and socks are much appreciated. The Heavy Syrup OP is amazing too, it actually matches my casual wardrobe more than my lolita wardrobe, so actually it's probably going to get more wear that way! And the dice are so wonderfully creepy (they have little skulls in them for anyone curious)

Thank you so much, I'm thrilled with everything!

>> No.10297267

Forgot to add this was $50-$75 tier

>> No.10297284

So glad you like everything. I honestly didn't think I'd find anything by Heavy Syrup so when I saw someone on Y!JP auctioning one I jumped right on to bidding.

Hi guys, it's so exciting gifts are beginning to come in! A few reminders now things are kicking off:

If you think you may be unable to meet the shipping deadline, email one of the organisers as soon as possible.

Include your tier and the gift ID number in your package on a note or card etc. This makes it easier for the Santa team to identify whose gift has arrived. If your gift arrives missing this please include this when you post the photo.

Email the Santa team with proof of shipping (and any tracking numbers etc.) once you have shipped anything.

Post pictures of any gifts received in the thread! I'm looking at you, >>10286325.

Hope everyone is having fun so far!

Everything is so perfect, thank you so much! I absolutely adore the rosette, lavender and cats are my favorite combo in the world and I was so happy when I opened it!

>Tier: $75-100

I'm literally laughing and about to cry here. This was so much more than I ever imagined and I was chatting with my friends when I opened it all so when I got to the burger hidden in a burger hidden in a burger I was losing my absolute mind and they were laughing along with it.

I cannot believe you not only got the most ridiculous design Listen Flavor shirts I've ever seen (great motivation to shed my holiday pounds to rock them come spring!), but the Sexpot Revenge one is hilarious and I have a few faux leather jackets it'd look great with!

The Tokyo Disney items are so adorable and have Shellie May sitting in the Duffy cup on my dresser right now. I can't wait to try all the candies as well and thank you so much for the maid cafe keychain! I had no idea you had maid cafes over there, that's so cool! I love all the pins as well and I actually had all three on my AliExpress wishlist!

The burgers though.. oh my goodness. I freaked out so hard when I opened the bag and saw the burger purse. It's been my holy grail for YEARS! I just kept putting it off thinking I'd get one when I finally made it to Tokyo Disneyland and I'm absolutely going in October 2020 so this and the pass case will come in handy! The keychain along with the maid one is going straight onto my Disney Loungefly bag I use daily.

Thank you SO much, this is just ridiculously amazing and I'm so glad I got matched with another Disney fan.

Maids of England are an amazing group of maids and I like to include something from my country but I wanted it to be related to your interests. We're lucky in the awesome maid cafes we have here, Meian is also excellent.

Just an update for my giftees...

Cards # 2952 and 6042, I mailed your cards last week since they had a long way to go, and they should be arriving soon!
Cards #7001, 8910, 4469, and 0864, yours will be mailed over the weekend since they don't have as far to go. Hopefully they should arrive quickly too!

Gift #2555, yours is assembled & wrapped and ready to go! I hope you don't mind, but I'll be shipping it out in two packages due to weight (I'm sure you can guess what would be so heavy!). The smaller one should reach you on time for Christmas, while the larger and heavier one might get there in time too, but might be a day or two late! Once I get the tracking info I will get Santa to send it to you!

Gift #9869, the main gifts in your package are in my country and unfortunately sitting in a box in customs. Fortunately, I still have a few days for them to clear customs before the gift is late for Christmas, but I'll keep you posted!

Gift #6646, I have your big item and some smaller ones, but your medium items are also sitting in the box that is stuck in customs right now... Thankfully we live in the same country so once I get them, the shipping to you will be quick. I will also keep you updated in the thread!

What’s a gift receipt?

>> No.10301888

A receipt that doesn't show the price, so you don't find out unless you go to return it. It's customary to take price tags off gifts so that the person enjoys it for the gesture it is rather than calculate the value. But this way if it doesn't fit at all, they can still exchange it for another item.

Apologies in advance to my card gulls.

I bought couple of cute pens and tape for you all but the only postage company in NZ is a fucking scam and wants to charge me $20 each to send you all a fucking pen with your cards (non-tracked btw). So you're getting my tears and maybe some stickers.

agreed, that's definitely not neon but mint green & pastels.

anon, did you put 'no neon colours' in your form or 'no greens'? Cause that's a big difference imo

even though the shirt is a big portion of your gift, I'd say its just bad luck and you got something you're not super happy with. But its really not your santas fault, and not worth asking for them to spend money on you again.

You really understood my tastes so perfectly; everything will be perfect in my wardrobe.

Hi! I'm torn right now because frankly, the customs in my country are very greedy and horrible. I made a taobao order and I'm currently waiting on a £20+ customs charge letter to come through so they stop ransoming my package - and that's for an EMS package marked as a $30 gift.
I do understand what you mean though, but our customs take every chance they get to charge astronomical prices for everything that comes through. I'm just a little worried about how much it might add up to if you don't mark it down.
But I trust your judgement, so please feel free to do what you think is best, anon!

>> No.10304002

I dont think it will go missing, honestly, as its an express courier and should reach you in 5 days or less!

But if you understand that IF it does I will only be able to re-gift at the lower price and dont mind, then I will mark it down as less! I dont want you to get an insane customs charge (fucking ridiculous and greedy in my opinion that they would charge on a GIFT around Christmas, ugh, pisses me right off!)

Its especially useful to me as I love drawing/ designing the clothing but can never be bothered with a full sketch and it makes it super simple and is such a cute idea!

I am so overwhelmed and thankful, Santa, these gifts were so perfect and gorgeous and felt so personal, I really feel blessed. I’m so glad you were my Santa! $75-$100 tier for reference.

For starters I’m losing my mind over all the notes and illustrations, they made me laugh so much and are so charming. I’m going to keep them all in the purse (which is so cute). I love my boy Dolan, I cracked up. It’s also really interesting that it’s good luck to put money in a purse in other countries!

I literally cried over the nails, oh my GOD. They are like my dream nails times a thousand and I absolutely adore them and can’t wait to wear them. They’re exquisite.

I can’t wait to try the face masks and the eyelashes! And I don’t know how you managed to pick exactly the kind of chocolate I love but you managed it. I’ll have a pop tart for breakfast on Christmas Day!

I love that all the My Melody things are useful and practical and I can’t wait to deck out my house haha. I love them all so much.

I also lost my shit at the earrings, I truly thought I’d never get those cute lollipops in clip ons. The necklace, the hair clips, the gloves - which fit perfectly - are all so cute and fit my style perfectly. Honestly can you explain which items you made? Because everything is so perfect and well done I genuinely can’t tell.

The phone case fits my phone and I love how extra it is! And I’m going to use the sleep mask tonight <3 I know I’m rambling but I love love love everything so much and you’ve made my Christmas, Santa. I had a rough year this year and it means so much I can end it on such a good note. Thank you so so so much <3

Apologies because I forgot to put the tier on the card! It's $75-100

So glad you like everything! I was worried you'd have that model so I ended up getting Char as a backup gift. Makes me happy to know you're using the scarf because I wasn't entirely sure if it would be to your tastes so it's good to know I did okay! Merry Christmas!
