I think a mass email of email addresses and post boxes should be made.

I am game

Could participants offer "prompts", like fave fandoms, characters, etc? To give those of us who don't post as often or know eachother as well a better idea of what their assigned giftee would like?

There should also be a budget. Nothing over certain dollar amount.

Just be careful with doing this. I've participated in various swaps, and there's almost always at least one flaker who receives something but doesn't send something out.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. No idea if I have time to make a decently nice homemade item, though. (Also, does this work internationally? Or are US members restricted to US, Canadian to Canada, etc.?)

I agree that a specific dollar amount should be set.

Especially if these are to be personal made items I think it would be appropriate so some eager beaver doesn't send out a life-size prop replica and gets a tun of muffins in return. Not that a tin of muffins is bad. Just an enormous cost difference.

For example, say that nothing should cost or be valued at over $30 (or more or less depending on what everyone would agree on).

Obviously value on an individual level of receiving a personalized gift is not something that can be measured monetarily, but as a rounded general idea of what everyone should stay in the ballpark of.

I just want you to know that I am going to draw a picture of Batman on a date with a Narwal. I don't care who I pick. That's what you get.

Valued at $300million.

Limit it to people who are somewhat known on here and you reduce by a lot the chances of shit happening to begin with.

"I'm gonna send a gift to this "CloudSephiroth69" user with 7 posts and no gallery or profile to speak of, surely he has astounding things to give to me in return!!11!"

Obnoxious, but yeah, to the point.

It may be a little more appropriate to keep with including users who are frequent on this particular board and at least have a general knowledge of one another. For one I think it will assist in being able to figure out the kind of gift they would enjoy and I think it would help to prevent Random Bro/Broette from -thread we never go on- using the Secret Santa as a way to get something for free and having no connection to anyone here they feel no obligation to give anything in return.

That said, who would be the deciding individual on who is and is not included? Luna?

I think 30 dollars is a fair amount to limit to.

Frame it, hang it over your bed so it can watch you make out with Brandon in the dark.
