    So I've had the opportunity to meet some really great people here and thought it would be appropriate with the holiday season upon us to do a little exchange of sorts to raise the camaraderie and have the chance to reach out to a friend, new or old. Rules will be simple and as follows:

    1. If you want in reply "In" and include a description of yourself and/or interests in 20 words or less in the reply. See example below. Follow up with a PM to me that you would like to participate and how you would like for me to get back to you (PM, email, text, ect.). Also include your mailing address.

    2. Gifts can be of any value, but do not feel obligated to spend more than $20 for your gift. This is more about reaching out to a friend than getting some new expensive present. Handmade, found and used gifts are encouraged as are unique items.

    3. I'll cut off entries Sunday, December 11th at midnight and will do a random number generator the following day and let you know who your secret Santa will be along with their mailing address.

    4. Send your gift by December 20th.

    5. Open your package on Christmas and start posting your gifts in this thread with whatever commentary is appropriate.

    HO, HO, HO...SG

    Pretty much anything with an outdoor theme is fine with me, but any odd small item that might work in the Tolkien project would be received joyously :)
