    Just to confirm. Posts within the "Have You Seen My Unusual Parts?" thread should be considered as a wish list? I have a lot of random parts to offload gift if so.

    I'm finding the £15 limit much trickier this year! I'm not somebody with a large stash to just pull from (it's clear from previous photos of gifts sent that they are worth far more than £15)

    … or am I? ;-)

    I think this year is the easiest Secret Santa yet for me.

    I am not sure my Secret Santa has behaved this year so they are getting Brix Play from Poundland.

    Or are they?

    Quick update: It’s a little over 38 days til Christmas and some packages are already moving their way across Europe... excitement is building!

    I may decide to splurge for my SS... on AliExpress I can get a Cafe Corner for $85!  :-)

    Apologies in advance to my Secret Santa if you end up sifting through the piles of drivel I leave scattered around these forums.

    I thought "Theme X" wasn't launching until 2021 though?

    @BooTheMightyHamster: don't worry, for my Secret Santa it is completely different.

    That moment when you get a chance to begin the stalking and find you have loads of your victims Santees wanted list in your trade pile.....but you still go and buy something else to go with it!
    All wrapped and ready to ship....or am I!

    Awaiting the last parts orders from various sites to arrive. 
    Question is, are they for me or my recipient?
    Or have I sent my present already?

    I recognize I haven't posted much here or updated my wanted list in forever, so I'll just leave this here to make my Secret Santa's day easier:
    "I like anything cool, odd, or interesting. My LEGO hayday was the 90's to early 2000s, so anything with that kind of feel will always make me happy."

    Has anyone else started the reading back of past SS threads? Or is it just me?

    I have actually bought something, not everything, but something. It’s even LEGO related.

    Looks like overspends on budget or people are getting rid of all that stuff that fell of a lorry

    I think everyone overspends, but I bet with the whole pandemic thing people are doing it a little more.

    Plus folks (myself included) will often include some extras out of their own stash, which technically wouldn’t count against the spend limit, right? 🙂

    Side note:  I have received a package from my Secret Santa’s helper elf, Jeff Bezos!

    I overspend too but the spend value is near budget but regular price would've been nearer double. Chocolate wouldn't survive here to be posted

    Just a quick update from Europe- 50% of Secret Santas have now shipped their packages, and several have arrived.  Just a couple of quick reminders:

    1. Please leave plenty of time to account for long shipping delays due to Covid
    2. Let your respective organizer know when you ship your gift out to your Santee
    3. Also please notify us when your Secret Santa's gift arrives at your home

    It's a little over 21 days til we can open up those packages and start building, and I can hardly wait!

    The important thing is that the average spend across all Secret Santas is around £15/$20. I try to offset everyone else's overspending by sending my santee nothing more than a used brick separator.
    Now what is going through my brain is are you just cheap (sending a teal one) or really, really cheap (an orange one)? :-) Your brick separator colour indicates your level of cheapness.

    EDIT: I just saw it's used, so I guess it could be a green one or the old grey ones. Or even a new black fat-boy.
