Magic Librarities Holiday Gift Exchange - FBB 4th Edition

Post by l0qii » Mon Nov 03, 2008 3:59 am

In keeping with the tradition, welcome to the FBB 4th Edition of the Magic Librarities Holiday Gift Exchange!

The gift exchange is a fun way to participate with your fellow members and make new friends. Participants put their names in the hat, we draw names at random for each participant and they send something (usually/ preferably Magic related) as a surprise gift at the holidays.

There are a few guidelines and suggestions, please read them carefully.

All members are eligible to participate.

There is an arbitrary (approximate) price limit of about $20 - $25 US. (shipping costs not included.)
Shipping will be the "givers" responsibility. (Please contact us if that is a challenge for you.)

***Registrations will run from now until 6pm (NY time) November 23, 2008***
We are starting late this year, so please, please register as soon as possible. Late registrations are absolutely not accepted!

To register, send via PM to L0qii's mailbox the following information:
Name ( real name & library name)
Mailing Address (or address you would like items shipped to).
A valid email address (other than Magiclibrarities) you may be contacted at.
Optional, but highly recommended - a wishlist. (Try to keep the list under 20 line items.)
I will also need to know if you are willing/able to ship internationally.

Your information (excluding your email) will be provided ONLY to the person who draws your name.

Confirmed participants will have their Librarity names listed at the bottom of this first post once I have received their information.
YOU CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE CONFIRMED UNTIL AFTER I HAVE REC'D YOUR INFORMATION.
Posting "I'm in", on the thread does not constitute registering.

It is understood that life has its complications and challenges so, if for ANY reason after confirming, you find that you are unable or not willing to participate to the fullest, please let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Names will be drawn from the Magic Hat and participants notified (via PM or email) on November 23 and 24, 2008

Due to an increased amount of postal workloads at that time of year, it is sugested that persons shipping internationally (overseas) have their items shipped no later than Dec. 1, 2008.
This is recommended due to possible delays in customs.
Those with domestic shipping should ship by Dec. 8, 2008. This is so the items can hopefully arrive on time to their respective destinations.

I would like members to notify me when they ship gifts AND when they receive them.

Here are some suggestions maximize the experience for the community.

1) Research your recipient. Spend some time reading through their posts
to try to discover what they collect. Part of the fun is in getting to know
people and trying to please them. (You're recipients wishlist will be provided on request, if they supplied one.)

2) If you can't find something that you know is on their wishlist, try to find
interesting, oddball things that they may not have seen. Customizing a card(s) is an idea for those rich in creativity but poor in pocketbook.
The goal should be creativity rather than bottom line Auction Site value.

3) The gifts should not be given anonymously, we are trying to make friends.
You may publicly post that you received (please wait until after Dec. 24, 2008 to post) and if you like, WHAT you received if you are thrilled so the person responsible will know.

Please DO NOT publicly post who sent you your gift and you should ALWAYS privately acknowledge a gift.

4) $20 to $25 is the suggested value for gifts but please give whatever you want to give and think is appropriate for the magic rarities community.
If you are thinking of sending standard commons or would be upset if that is what you received, it might better if you didn't participate.

Hm, would have been in this year, but since we'll not be at home it would be to complicated. However for one of the participiants we think we have something small which he has on his want-list and it will be on the way before we leave :-)
