Magic Librarities Holiday Gift Exchange - Tenth Edition

Post by Blood » Wed Nov 06, 2013 12:51 am

EDIT: The gift exchange is closed. I will be emailing out all info to each person in the next 24 hours. Be on the lookout. Jason

EDIT:As long as you get your email to me by midnight Sunday night you can get in. Monday all of the names will be sent out for your santa and after that it will be too late. Jason

In celebration of 10 years of Librarities, welcome to the "Core Set - Tenth Edition" 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. I put participant's names in my magic Philadelphia Eagles Hat, then I 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 15, 2013
Please register as soon as possible. Late registrations are absolutely not accepted!

To register, send via PM to Blood's mailbox the following information:
Name ( real name & library name)
Mailing Address (or address you would like items shipped to).
A valid email address 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.

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 my Magic Philadelphia Eagles Hat and participants notified (via PM or email) on November 18th, 2013.

Due to an increased amount of postal workloads at that time of year, it is suggested that persons shipping internationally (overseas) have their items shipped no later than Dec. 1, 2013.
This is recommended due to possible delays in customs.
Those with domestic shipping should ship by Dec. 8, 2013. 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.)

Anyone who gets me, just see the 3rd page of the Holiday Gift Exchange for the 10 Years of Magiclibrarities forum and you can see my interests. http://www.magiclibrarities.net/forum/v ... c&start=30

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.

Other options that I really like in addition to the gift are local flavor options. Something small that defines the region you live or the culture you are part of makes a cool gift to someone on the other side of the world.

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, 2013 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.

Let's have a great celebration of the holidays and the 10th anniversary of the forum!
