Official 2018 Ornament Exchange Thread (CLOSED)

Postby teknoge3k » Mon Oct 15, 2018 3:24 pm

If you're interested in participating in the 2018 ornament exchange, send me a private message with your name and address. This will be open until November 1st. At that point I will send out who you are to send an ornament to. I will not be responding to each message saying "got it". If you sent it, I got it. ;)

If you've never participated in this before, it's simple. You send me your information. By doing that, you are committing to sending someone else an ornament. On November 1st I will send you the name and address of a forum member for you to send an ornament to.

Deadline to mail ornaments will be November 14th which will give you 2 weeks to get and send an ornament.

Feel free to post your 'likes' on this thread, although you may not get the exact ornament you want since some people shop early.

If you have signed up for this before but did not send an ornament to your partner, you will not be able to participate this year. A list has been kept.

You must have a minimum of 100 posts on the forums here in order to participate or must have been a member of the forums for a minimum of 3 years. This prevents the "fly by" people from trying to reap the benefits of our forum regulars.

I’m signed up! My likes/dislikes are pretty much the same as last year:

I'm not too picky. There’s not too much that I would dislike. Just no tv/movie/song stuff (because I don't watch/listen to too many and probably wouldn't get it)

I would really like to see something reflective of where you live or who you are—something personal.
If you would rather pick an ornament that reminds you of me, here are some ideas:
I run 5Ks, play the ukulele, speak French, and I LOVE dogs (specifically corgis). I like all colors, but teal/turquoise are my favorite and I love anything shiny, glitter, and sparkles (obviously :P ).
The best I can give you is a fake smile and dead eyes.

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

PM sent.

I collect black santas, black angels, snow white, and the female Disney villains (Evil Queen, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, Cruella, Ursula, Lady Tremaine and Mother Gothel), Marvin the Martian and Los Angeles Clippers.

I love participating in this every year! I've gotten some great ornaments over the years.
I'm addicted!

:o :o

I am not picky! I like Disney items (Tinker Bell, Mickey... regular Disney), cute snowmen, classic type ornaments. The color blue. Glitter or sparkly is fine. Whatever I said last year is probably still true :lol:

First year participating... open to whatever you send. As the dad of 3 kids under the age of 6, most of what we're in to has to do with their interests... PJ Masks, DC Superhero Girls, Batman and Lego Batman, but it doesn't have to be these things. We are a fan of Hallmark - but anything cute that looks good is totally fine.

Signed up. We are also pretty happy with most anything but here are some specific ideas. Feel free to totally ignore and go with what you want to if you have something else in mind.

In the past I have always put things my girls like, so this year I will put down likes of my son. He is on a huge Nordic kick right now. Loves anything having to do with Norway/Scandinavia. He wears a silver Mjolnir pendant daily (Thor's hammer). He does not like modern versions like Marvel. He likes classic old school stuff like classic myths/legends/gods/trolls/gnomes/Vikings. We have absolutely nothing along those lines. His aspiration is to be a Marine after high school. So anything USMC themed is also great. My son is 13 and is my youngest.

And I like Santas from around the world as well as very traditional Country type Christmas ornaments.

I am signed up as well. I would like an ornament that represents where you are from. It can be anything you want.
