my giftee was upset last time because he/she just wrote they wanted life size baby groot. i asked if they wanted to add more info and other pops they were interested in and they just said "no". no way i was gonna pay for life size baby groot + shipping, so i got normal baby groot and they got mad

That happened last year for me too, they put down grails and Funko that were $50 or more. I asked if they had a favorite line and they said Marvel so I got them the latest con exclusive and a common and they said it’s not what they asked for.

I still have tons of fun, only had a few duds here or there

level 3

do you rememer what grails they were asking for? just for a quick laugh

level 4

All 2010 Disney con exclusives and stuff like that. Like Metallic Dumbo, Monsters Inc etc.

level 5

damn....

level 2

That doesn't sound fun at all

level 3

i'm pretty sure there are like better people who understand the spirit of a gift swap, but i'm pretty sure theres a good chunk that see it as a way to get free pops. and i got one of those free pop people lol. i'll still do it but if they ask for one specific pop and it is a rare and expensive one, they are getting a baywatch pop

level 2

I got some guy that said surprise me and his name was close to Stan Lee so I gave him a ton of DC pops I said I like cartoon and to surprise me ( witch they did )

Make sure to check out r/secretsanta for rules and more info. Lots of people from this sub participated in this exchange last year - I've been addicted to RedditGifts ever since!

level 1

I got shafted on my first Reddit gifts exchange so I’ve been wary of doing any more.

level 2

Right there with you. Tried Secret Santa last year. The person I sent a gift to never acknowledged receiving my gifts (had confirmation everything was delivered) and the person assigned to me never sent anything. I was really excited going into the whole thing and ended up super deflated. My re-gift Santa also flaked on me. They were going to match me again, but I asked the mods to just remove me from the whole thing at that point. That said, I have been tempted to try again mainly because even though it didn't work out, I genuinely had fun shopping for a stranger. :)

level 2

What Happened?

level 3

I'm guessing they were the ones who received pure spider-man candy sticks because they stated they liked spider-man

level 4

I trolled my gift person. I sent two packages. The info said she liked "the doctor", so I sent a bunch of magazines and books written by Dr Oz. Her thank you post was polite but indicated she thinks her giftee misread her info. After that I sent a bunch of Dr who stuff

Oof, I remember that. Hilarious but also awful. Unfortunately not everyone participating puts in as much effort as they could.

level 5

I was just going through one of the galleries, and found someone who was an atheist (read their bio) was sent a ton of Christian pamphlets and other religious paraphenelia... None of the items matching the theme of the exchange at all. Seemed like a dick move.

level 6
Original Poster1 point · 2 days ago

Unfortunately, there are assholes everywhere. Most of the gallery you'll see if full of really cool, thoughtful gifts. It is a little bit of a gamble in the end, but it's pretty rare to get someone who is being awful on purpose.

level 3

I signed up for two exchanges, one a postcard & one a Pokémon exchange. The postcard one was fine, got a postcard from Poland which is my homeland so it was cool to get that. The Pokémon one, I had a tracking number for three things and only two showed up. Never got any help from anyone about the missing package, so who knows. The two things I got were cool, don’t get me wrong, it just put a bad taste in my mouth for the whole thing. I’m sure I could have a different experience with doing it again, it just makes me a little nervous.

level 2

I did as well on my first exchange and also by my rematch Santa. I decided to give it another try and glad I did. I have done over 20 exchanges over the last 2 years and have gotten some pretty amazing gifts, a few in the $150-200 range.

level 1

Does anyone know if you only get matched with people in your own country? I want to participate, but not if I have to pay international shipping...

level 2

You can choose if you want to do your country or international.

level 2
Original Poster3 points · 2 days ago

You can choose either domestic or international! I think you have to choose domestic only for your first exchange. Although if you're in a country with very few participants, you might still be matched internationally. Lots of info can be found over on the r/secretsanta sub

level 1

Is it just me or can anyone else login in to sign up? Because I can’t

level 2
Original Poster3 points · 2 days ago

You have to create a separate account on the redditgifts site and link it to your reddit account. Not sure if that's the issue you're having?

level 3

Ohhhhh yeah that was it as you can tell I’m new to this :) thank you

level 1

I’d like to try it because it sounds like fun. In the past my family and I would go pull cards from Xmas tree gifts for the less fortunate. Then I would let my kids go shopping for those kids we pulled for, we all use to like doing that. Might get back to that again this year and maybe this one for the adult version of that. 😁

level 1

Love doing this last year and I'm happy this is happening again

level 1

Awesome! I hit the jackpot last year - my custom Tony Stark is one of my favourite pops! 😍

level 1

Signed up for the first time!

level 1

I signed up last year, definitely will again this year. Looks like I am number 105 so far.

level 1

I've had good luck with past exchanges so I signed up. Whether I'm shafted or not, as long as I can bring a smile to someone's face I'll be happy

level 2
Original Poster2 points · 2 days ago

This is my theory. I’ve done several exchanges now, and the only times I’ve had a Santa not send anything, I did get rematched. Sometimes you get something really awesome, and sometimes you get something pretty bland, but most of the fun is seeing your giftee’s reaction to what you picked out for them!

level 1

This was so much fun last year, totally forgot abt it

level 1

Whoop whoop signed up last night

level 1

I'm interested, just signed up.

I take it people have been mailed junk before?

level 2

The suggested gift amount is $20. Some people go all out and spend way more than that, while others do the bare minimum. You have a chance to rate your gift in the end, and people who are constantly rated poorly are supposed to be banned. You also get banned for not sending anything, or for not posting that you received your gift in the end.

level 3

Thanks. I can't afford to go all out, but I can send someone a bunch of pops, might make someone's day.

level 1

Signed up for the first time!

level 1

Whaaaat! I'm definitely signing up!

level 1

I hope this works out this time. Haven't signed up for one of these in a long time. Buying something for someone else is always fun at least.

level 1

Signed up !! Should be interesting at the least lol

level 1

Im pretty tempted to sign up for the coaster one that sounds pretty awesome actually
