I sent my card and gift tiers yesterday, so 9886 and 3051, Santa should email you with the tracking.

#1814 I have sent your package out! I have updated Santa with the tracking, it only ended up being $115 to send, not $280 so that is nice (I went with regular courier, not express) But it should reach you in 3 - 7 days! Maybe more due to Christmas. I declared it as $60NZD so hopefully the charge wont be too much!

I'll apologize in advance for my wrapping skills haha

Hello 2555, just wanted to let you know that I shipped your gifts on the 11th and they should be reaching you soon! The smaller one was sent via EMS and should be there in maybe 2 more business days, and the larger package should be about 6 more business days. I’m so excited for them to reach you!

Hey Gulls, were we supposed to get our card matches a gift in the card? I'm kind of poor, but I love making cards. Seeing all these face masks and teas in them make me think otherwise. Sorry for being an idiot.

>> No.10305061

No you absolutely don't! Some anons just like to include a couple of extras, don't worry about it. Anons will appreciate that you took the time to make the card.

>> No.10305068

I'm sure it's fine! I'm horrible at wrapping as well so it's nice to know I'm not the only one.

Mine was $50 to someone. More than I expected but at least it's a good learning experience for next year?

Cards just means a straight up card. The face masks, stickers, stationery, etc are just extras but they're not obligated.

>> No.10305114

Oh no I'm not, I just asked here because its Christmas related. Never even been on /cgl/ before

>> No.10305119


Sadly, this is the reality for international shipping. You're going to have to spend $50+ to send each gift overseas. This cost is why I understand gulls who only want to ship within their own country or region.

>> No.10305184

I paid about 76 I think to ship mine internationally. T_T It did hurt too. I think I will stick to domestic next year.

>> No.10305193

Intl shipping can definitely be rough. My only tracked opinion was EMS so I shelled out $85 or so. Totally worth it though.

I don't blame gulls who cannot afford it and opt out of intl shipping, though.

Match number #6006 here! Today I visited the post office, with all of my cards and single gift in tow.

The postal worker was super busy and stressed, and I foolishly got swept up in it. Through the sheer force of his need for speed I failed to remember tracking. I'm super sorry to all of you, especially match #4724! I had so much fun picking out your gift, and now I can't know that it's arriving safely... I told santa about some measures I'm ready to go through in the case that it doesn't arrive.

Awwww, oh my gosh!!! I’m honestly sooo happy right now! It really did reach you pretty fast, didn’t it!

It was a quest to find anything with Don which didn’t suppose waiting for like a month, I think he’s the least popular character in my country - we’ve got tons of Mickey, Dumbo, Bambi, guys from duck stories even - but Donald and Daisy I haven’t seen while shopping at all, so yeah. Same goes for My Melody, I bought literally everything they had with it at my city’s Japan store! I’m happy you liked it! Also fun fact: now I NEED the phone stand I saw at your Pinterest :D

Regarding handmade, I made the necklace, the clip-ons and the nails. I know how hard it is to find clip-ons for you girls not wearing regular earrings, especially which suit your style. I sometimes get asked by friends to do them and the design you liked was pretty doable. I was a bit nervous for the outcome because of the materials though, so I went with a realistic look and I’m glad they were to your liking! The nails were my first ones ever haha, I decided to make them on an impulse. Made all sizes because you didn’t specify even after the general sizing question lol and I didn’t want to spoil, but I tried to leave some 'safe space' on the sides of larger ones for you to file down if needed and use the maximum out of them. You might want to seal the edges if you do though because they are all gel-coated. Fun fact #2: I liked making them so much I’m considering making more for sale in different styles now!

Oh and I’m happy you liked the snacks, we usually have more PopTarts for sale in import shops but this time there were just a bit for some reason. The foiled one is apple-flavored!

That being said I really really REALLY loved shopping&crafting for you so much! I love all jsf styles so much, the more distinctive the better, and you’re like a real princess so I was insanely happy to embark on this journey — even more so to hear you liked it all <3

Hi! Thanks for the update, I’ll be definitely keeping an eye out for them! They may reach me a bit later than you anticipate though because our post is overloaded now, I literally waited 50 mins in line just to buy a postage box yesterday — but don’t fret, it’ll be great either way! I’ll notify you when it reaches me but odds are I’ll open it on 25th if it comes earlier cuz I like the tradition, I hope you don’t mind!

>Tier: $30-40

My neighbor ended up getting my package and brought it over to me so it was an extra surprise to begin with since I wasn't expecting this until tomorrow.

I started out with the smallest gifts and the more candy I unwrapped the more confused I got. I honestly thought the big package was going to be a jumbo sized Popin' Cookin' until I opened it because I had absolutely no idea where it was all going!

I totally lost my mind when I saw the drawstring bag and what was in it though.
I cannot wait to hang the Cardinal up in a place of honor, especially once I finish this puzzle and get it framed as well.

Thank you SO MUCH, fellow Ghoulette! I can now say since I have Ghost, I have everything.

Thank you for your card #2555! I'm really impressed by the drawing of Moemura on your envelope inside the envelope. It looks so cool in white against black. I will treasure that, just like your sweet message and card. I quite like the sticker and will have no problem putting it on my wall. The nail art stickers are quite interesting. I've never used any of those before, but these are so cute I want to give it a try. Thank you so much all over again!

ahhh, you have spoilt me with this card #6042!! between the snake/dragon themed card and ornament, the cute botanical stickers, and the delicious treats you hit so many things I love. I asked for some nice nail polishes for Christmas so I'll get to make full use of the nail art stickers very soon, and I'll have to make sure to wear one of my night sky themed dresses when I do. Both teas look really delicious--I'll have to have a pampering night with one and the body lotion. I hope to try the cake recipe soon, and for now I've hung the ornament on Kazul's tank so she can enjoy it too :) Thank you so much, and Merry Christmas!

For #6006 -- I sent your $30-40 tier gift on the 4th, and I've been keeping an eye on the tracking. At the moment it's shown as "in transit" since the 12th and no updates since then, so I'm hoping this is just the crossing-the-ocean part of shipping and that it'll start showing more activity again soon. Fingers crossed it makes it by Christmas!

Hi #6201! I finally opened my gift, and wow! Thank you so much! I'm SHOCKED you managed to find a fashion design based worker placement game like how the heck did you find that?? Also the dice are perfectly my aesthetic, I will be using them at tonight's DnD session. Targi looks like a lot of fun and I'm excited to try it!

There's so many amazingly thoughtful cards that have been posted by now that I kinda feel bad about it.

>> No.10307834

Same, really makes me feel like I fucked up in a major way. I should've known from last year's SS threads.

>> No.10307867

Don't feel bad. Card tier is just that, cards.

And I mentioned this previously, but it's this "clearly going outside of the agreed tier" pressure that now exists in these threads that causes this kind of thing, and I hate it.

>> No.10307868


Honestly, I'd rather the gift exchange didn't morph into some weird thing where there's unwritten rules that gulls need to politely send extras with their cards. I feel, like, if people sign up for a card tier then they should know to expect just a card, if they want an actual gift they should sign up for a proper gift tier.

I'm saying this as someone in the card exchange, I'd be happy just receiving a card and nothing else. The extras like facemasks, stickers, tea, whatever, -- I can buy those myself if I really wanted them, or I could have signed up for a gift tier. What I really like is the personal notes inside the cards, the idea that someone picked out the card just for me.

So yeah, I wouldn't worry about not sending enough extras.

>> No.10307869

It's like power creep in TCGs.

>> No.10307914

I'm someone who included extra goodies in the cards I sent. I have 0 expectation of getting anything back and would be perfectly happy with receiving only simple cards with a short note/greeting and nothing more.

It was just a fun extra thing for me to do during a cold, dark time of year. I think everyone knows that the only thing to expect in a card tier is a card.

>> No.10307922

I’m someone who also adds extras in cards, but I don’t expect them back. All I expect is a personalized note, when I receive a generic Christmas card that just says “merry xmas” is when I’m disappointed. Other than that I don’t have any expectations to receive “extras” or anything.

>> No.10307931

I feel like every year we have the same complaints regarding cards and people splurging on tiers.

It says when you sign up that card tier is just that - a card. You can include extras but you're not obligated to and you shouldn't expect extras.

As for splurging, that's a similar deal. Some people get matched so well that it's easy to shop for their giftee and they just go overboard because it's better to give than receive.
You shouldn't expect to be spoiled and no one should feel pressured to spoil to 'keep up with expectations. The same is said about adding extras to cards.

>> No.10308007

The reason I included extras with my cards is because it's my first year so I'm limited on the value I can sign up for. But I made sure to keep my fillers under $10 so it doesn't creep into the next tier.

#6006 here again, and thank you so much #7001! Even if Homura's feet were poking out it was easy to smoothen the paper and have her as good as new. You drew the best girl so well! I can easily imagine her actually wearing lolita exactly in this style. I will treasure your drawing dearly!

I'm also pleasantly surprised to get mail from an Instagram mutual. Would you mind if I send you a card back or just... Uh, hit you up on insta to talk about waifus and the like? Otherwise I'll just keep silently liking your posts as I always have. Thank you again!

>> No.10308057

It's because the point of having tiers is to stay within those tiers.

If you join a work secret Santa or even within friends, and the agreed amount is $20-30, and you bring a gift worth $60, you look like an asshole, not a saint.

Jeez, there's even a whole episode of The Office about this.

>> No.10308099

I’m so glad you liked the card! Your info gave me spooky vibes so I thought the postcard would be cute.

>> No.10308146

How is someone being an asshole for going over their gift tier? No one in the $20-$30 tier is spending $60, more like around $45 at worst. You’re an asshole if you send below your agreed amount.

>> No.10308173

Sometimes you don't stay in those tiers and that's fine. You can't just get $20 of stuff, see an item they'd love that's $20 and go "Well I guess they'll miss out because it's $10 more."

The entire thing is anonymous. No one works with each other or knows each other so no one is going to look like a saint for going over.
Stop being so salty.

>> No.10308185

At no point did I say to send below, so I don't know what you're even mentioning that for.

Whether it's $45 or $60, it's still far outside of the bounds that were agreed to. If you want to spend more on someone, just sign up for a higher gift tier. How is that hard?

>You can't just get $20 of stuff, see an item they'd love that's $20 and go "Well I guess they'll miss out because it's $10 more."

Yes you literally can. Otherwise, your logic goes, "well you see something that they love and it's $100, and you have to get it because it's only $90 over." Over is over, simple as that.

3841 from Canada, just wanted to thank you for your patience regarding delayed shipping of your gift. The items stuck in customs FINALLY arrived (took like a month lol) and I’ll be shipping it out on Monday. I bought you a bunch of extra goodies on a recent trip to make up for it, so thank you again and I am excited to send it!

9869, I mailed your package domestically and it should be arriving by now! Please let me know if it doesn’t show up soon!

2555, I just checked the tracking for your small package, it has cleared customs in your country on the 18th and likely will reach you soon! Again, the really good stuff is in the big package, but I hope the small stuff will make you happy! I am a bit worried that it won’t be very exciting, but hopefully it’s okay.

>> No.10308376

You'd be an asshole in those situations because you are socially obliged to join in those secret santas and a limit is usually established to avoid embarrassing those of lesser means. This is completely voluntary, anonymous and you're not embarrassing anyone if you overspend, contrary to the opinions of like the 2 people who come in every year and bitch about people overspending.

I think you're thinking people are overspending to show off or "look like a saint" but in my experience people overspending are doing it because it is fun for them to shop for their Santa. That's it. Literally the only person who cares about whether or not you overspend is you yourself, and I'm so tired of people projecting their paranoia over this to literally everyone else who could not give less of a fuck.

#8658, this is #4315! Your gift arrived and I absolutely adore it <3 There's not much of a community around for mori, so I was really happy to get such a cohesively themed gift (and wrapped so beautifully). I think I audibly gasped when I opened the bolero, it's everything I love. The draping lace layers, the light floaty fabric, the detailing on the back -- I am going to get a lot of use out of it, including with some of my more casual lolita coords as well. The shorts will be perfect for hiking around in during the spring and summer, and the lacy socks will go with several things I own already as well (and the Christmas ones I plan to wear this week :) ). The bookmark was a thoughtful touch and I want to say thank you for including the poem as well--the last line has been echoing in my head all day, I really enjoyed it!

You really paid attention to things I said I liked (all the lace touches have me swooning), and everything you got me will be useful in my wardrobe and wearable in my climate. Thank you for taking the time to put together such a thoughtful gift for me. Wishing you all the best over the holidays.>>10308443

#2952 got the package on Thursday but since my phone camera is broken I was unable to take pics until today! For some reason the tracking stopped updating since 2 Dec, and I thought it was delayed in the holiday season mess, so it was definitely a pleasant surprise.

I had a really bad day but as soon as I started to unpack I could not stop smiling! You absolutely spoiled me, still cant believe you included almost literally EVERYTHING from the idea list!! The headdresses, T-shirts, stockings and the blouse are exactly what I had in mind and fit my wardrobe so well!! Thanks to you I finally have accessories to complete my coord for the Christmas meet! I cant get over how pretty the Slytherin mug & makeup bag are, and I wanted to try Bertie Botts beans for eternity! The tote bag is perfect since I love Moster High but always forget to mention it in my forms haha! The snacks are on point and the earmuffs and the scarf are such a cute addition for winter!

Thank you so so so much Swedish gull, every gift is so well thought and useful. I'm really amazed how much atention you paid to my tastes and I could not ask for a better Santa! I hope you'll have an amazing holiday season and great 2020! Lots of love from #7312 <3

Look, it had crossed the ocean already! It's not stuck on a boat, and it might just arrive before New year's??
I also tried putting it in Sweden's postal system but no dice, so it's still with no doubt in the hands of USPS. Let's have faith in them, I'm sure they will manage. USPS is not that big here, so maybe they were just cutting costs by saving up a big truckload to go from the capital to my city? Think happy thoughts Santa!

Agreed, but I didn't want to be the one to say something. No one buys multiple gel polishes, the nails themselves, nail stamps, and nail art pieces like those gems and caviar balls just to try to make something for someone. Either they make nails regularly or they got them commissioned elsewhere.

I for on am upset they lied. People spend years and hundreds of dollars to be professional nail artists and I personally know how long those kinds of sets take. The set she sent also uses a nail printer on some of it, and to me humblebragging about that shit being her "first set" when it's likely just shitty taobao is the negativity ITT. She's probably just going to try to shill resell her shop or something.

Hi guys, I'm really sorry, it seems like I've had a large number of tracking numbers sent to me, however I'm currently with family and have limited time so I am trying to focus on sending out gift tracking numbers followed by card tracking numbers along with checking off any gifts posted in the threads. Also don't be too worried if you haven't received a tracking number - not everyone has sent us the tracking number with their proof of postage. After the grinch check deadline has passed I will look into any missing cards and gifts further and I will be going through the emails as fast as I can.

Oh my God, what a shitshow.

Yes, they are is my nails. They are my first nails. I made them specifically for my giftee and that is it. I posted the photo for getting her attention, not yours, and I'm ashamed some of you behave like bitches in such a sweet thread. If anyone have their doubts regarding my sincerety, go ahead, here's my mail, I will go through all the trouble to show you the receipts from nail shops showing the dates and that I started from the scratch, photos of dialogues with friends (sorry for it to be in a foreighn language), and what other proof I can include. You may think it was easy, but it was not, I had a couple of weeks of everyday practice and a budget for my gift of 100$. I simply could afford to make these, it was easy and fun and it's not nuclear physics - at least for me, so stop being this salty, because it's completely uncalled for.

Going over past threads, this is actually the first time it has been brought up as an actual complaint.

I've looked over previous gifts and (although maybe irrelevant to giftees interests) they look like okay gifts, and because no one previously has emailed in and complained directly we didn't have any notes from last year/ previous years from other Santas. So this person wasn't someone we were actively looking out for.

>> No.10310450

I'm sorry you're upset with the gift but as most of the gift is accessories (which you requested) you need to open the packages before you judge. What you have pictured is a very small portion of the gift. The menhera items were added on based on a reply to a question you asked/your outfits and were extra, with the Lolita jewelry valuing well over $100 by itself, picked to match the likes you listed and coords you picked. I did plan on getting you other things but as I noted in the package I had extreme emergencies this year. Nobody has complained about my gifts previous (unless you were the gull who grinched me when it was mutual pairs), and if you were upset then you could have told me and I would have gotten you something else. Wrapping isn't even required, but I did use cute heart boxes and bags for the jewelry, and a cute mailer.
If you're really upset I can get you a some other items, but it seems odd to me you wouldn't finish opening the package before complaining.

>> No.10310452

She didn't even bother to open them and it looks like you got her a ton of stuff. I'm really interested if she's the person who grinched you before. Idk this is extremely shameful. Not everyone wraps their Santa gifts, my gifts sent to me have never been wrapped. You got a ton of stuff and you couldn't even be bothered to actually look at it because it wasn't wrapped?

No. Trust me, I opened them. Not even wrapped, you spelled my name wrong on the sad excuse of a card. None of it matches my insta feed or anything that I own and none of this is considered lolita.

If it is puvithel I agree it's tacky to only send shit from their own indie brand but you should have put puvithel items for things you don't want to receive.

As one of the organisers, I can see both sides here and have also seen the gift.

> Yes, the gift is over $100+ in value

> No, the gift is not very relevant to what was written on the giftees form.

I can definitely see why she is disappointed as the gift was not very personal and in such a high tier you do expect a little more. If the giftee was in to the fashion/ styles which were sent it may have been a little different as it is otherwise a good gift for someone wanting those items. But unfortunately, this is not the case here.

Please cut the squabbling before our thread gets nuked. The Elves/ Santa will try and find a solution which will be fair for both sides.

>> No.10310615

You should also take into account that instead of seeking resolution privately that the giftee aired it out on here to cause drama

>> No.10310619

Oof, this sounds so rough. It sounds like the anon kind of got fed up with being matched with the same person three years in a row and getting their wishlist ignored every single time. Honestly, it seems really tacky for Puvithel to just... send her own indie brand items instead of tailoring things to the giftee...

Hope it gets resolved soon! Thank you for taking time to respond on Christmas day!! I hope you and the other organizers are having a good holiday.

If the giftee has been matched with this person for 3 years and has been gifted similar non-relevant things for 3 years, I kinda get it, tbqh.

Right, because causing drama on here is much better than talking directly to the people responsible for the pairing to begin with. I’d understand if her anger was directed specifically at the organizers instead of taking it out on the Santa who didn’t pick her to send a gift to to begin with

Hello, 4469 here! 7900, thank you SO so much for the adorable package!! The whales you drew on the sides of the box were so cute, and when I opened it up to find the whale ornament I basically screamed!! It's so so sweet and cute and I wasn't expecting a whole ass ornament from just a card match???? She's already on my Christmas tree, swimming with other ocean friends :) I also love love loved the stickers you included, they're all so perfect!! The haenuli postcard us gorgeous, Just One Bite is actually my favourite from her so idk how you guessed that <3 thank you so much for your kind words in your letter and extremely thoughtful and generous gift <3 <3 <3

Just in defense of the organizers (who seem to be looking into it) I think the Santa’s have been different people every single year so they may well not have known about previous matches, does anyone know if a record was kept? Did anon mention the serial matching on their form >>10310605? They must have interests in common if they keep getting matched, I doubt the Santa’s have a vendetta against this girl.

>> No.10310630

Honestly the organizers are the only ones who have blame on this situation if the claim of them matching these people together three times like this is true. Even if they are different organizers, that’s some shitty communication.

Yes can you please post pictures of your gifts if your going to post publicly that you dislike them? None of us are even aware of what you got and we cant make a good response unless you do, you posted it in such a discrete way..

>> No.10310633

Oh, I wasn't blaming the organizers at all? I was just sympathizing with the anon because being matched with the same person who ignores your wishlist for 3 years sounds really disappointing. I know that other anons are mad that she's turned this into "drama" but I can kind of see where she's coming from. She definitely could have handled it privately from the start but her outburst is coming from a place of frustration which I get. Honestly, if you're signing up for this event, you should be prepared to spend actual money on your giftee instead of... sending them your leftover stock because you happen to run an indie brand. If your merch lines up with their interests, that's a plus but from how anon's described it, it doesn't sound like her interests were taken into account at all.

This is a nice volunteer-run event in the spirit of the holidays and I'm always very thankful to all the seagulls that step up to take charge. It sounds like the Santas are on it so hopefully it'll all come to a peaceful resolution!

desu is puvithel even a lolita? upset lolita mentions how her gift isn’t relevant so how were they even paired up. it’s kind of hard to shop for a lolita if you aren’t one desu. anyway that kind of sucks since it was a high tier from what party shark said.

>> No.10310643

When you take into account each tier, we had just over 140 matches to individually hand pick this year.

We base choices on interests and location, and unfortunately we just did not check last years matches (I do not think the previous years matches are in the folder as some were matched using software). Unless someone directly complains about a match or notes it in their form, we do not note down that they have been matched already/ do not want to be matched again.

Please understand, each year, the Santas/ Elves have a different preferred way of contact/ file organisation.. so its very hard and VERY time consuming to look in to stuff like this unless the participant specifically tells us to. Imagine if we went back the last 4 evens and checked who had been matched with who and added that in as well as interests and region to our matching.. It would take us weeks to sort out matches! So unfortunately stuff like this does end up happening.

>> No.10310645

>> No.10310654 [DELETED] 


If part of the decision is by region and they live in the same region and didn't give Santas any reason not to match them like mentioning disliking their previous match (assuming they didn't say anything in detail to Santas this year if it happened a third time) then it wouldn't be crazy for an anon who only swaps gifts within their region/more locally to end up with repeats and only complain when the repeats give gifts they really don't like.

I think the anon who is upset has a reason to be but they also expressed their disappointment really publicly and progressively rudely so people are seeing them as ungrateful since much of the thread is just people happy about their gifts and general good vibes interrupted by this somewhat private issue. If it really is puvithel just sending extra stock they basically didn't even spend any money on their giftee and used things they had around for free which is kind of not in the spirit of the whole exchange in the first place if they knew those items had nothing to do with the anon's interests?

I'm in India, and my phone isn't letting me post my photo. I'll send it to Santa.
I'm sorry for misspelling your name.

+ Cards and wrapping is not required (though i tried)
+ Not everything is my brand. (if the Pep Fox item had come in this would be $100+ alone)
+ You asked for accessories
+ Your form says handmade is fine

I sent you a red bag that I thought would match your red country coords. I sent you sweet lolita jewelry/accessories in lavender, sax, and pink, including items purchased from other lolita brands, and items I made for you. I sent you a Btssb photobook (and postcards accidentally, I know you don't want stationary).

I noticed your insta had menhera-chan, so I asked you in the threads if you liked menhera. You said no, but you like cute medical themes, so I added some yamikawaii items following colors you mentioned.

I added classic items based on your insta.

If I had been a random who sent you $100 handmade lavender, sax, pink accessories, it would have been acceptable. It seems unfair that because it's me it's not ok.

On my past gifts, nobody complained. If anyone had I would have gotten them replacements. One giftee mentioned in the thread that they had not listed menhera because they had no menhera yet and didn't want to get half an outfit, but that they were trying to put together a menhera coord and would be fine if it was a full outfit. They told me what they wanted, and I put together an outfit along with other general items in their style. They seemed quite happy with their gift, but ofc it doesn't match what was on their form.

The year the gifts were mutuals, someone requested no items from my brand, and I respected their wishes. However they grinched me, so that photo isn't in the threads.

I am sorry you did not like your gift, I did try, and I'm happy to discuss a resolution with santa. I do not appreciate you making this one-sided publicly with a bad photo, or you accusing me of giving you leftovers.

>(if the Pep Fox item had come in this would be $100+ alone)

If the item from Peppermint Fox was essentially the main piece of their gift, why not just let the Elves know that you were waiting on something that hadn't arrived yet and you needed to ship late? This feels like a bit of an excuse. Like are you just going to keep the Peppermint Fox piece for yourself when it finally shows up? Seems suspicious to me.

Reading comprehension? Different people in the Santa team each year, so three different teams of Santa’s matched this match each time.

Sorry for everyone reading below this point.

>three years of sending anons your leftovers
>for some miracle no one complains openly, get away with it

No it’s FUCKING NOT. Your items are VERY niche, and what you do here is luring anons during pre-exchange discussion into slipping what you want to hear for having an opportunity to say they didn’t mind in the future. Fuck that’s sick. Just don’t participate in the future.

I can't read her forum, but I don't think it's just specific problem. Just that you have a history of sending "leftovers". I suppose if it's adjacent to what they want it'd be okay. And your giftee fells like it wasn't. Sorry that you disappointed someone during x-mas, but it happens a lot.

If I joined a 100+ tier and got a gift from someone who used stuff she literally already had for 70% of the gift I'd be really really pissed.

Imagine spending so much money on a gift for someone, then getting something that amounts to 30$ spent and 70$ worth of stuff they had lying around.

You can put in stuff you already had/didn't specifically buy for your match, sure. But definitely as lil extras and don't bother at all if it doesn't match their interests

but santa is claiming they bought the tier minimum worth of stuff from other brands specifically for their giftee and only used their own brand as filler stocking stuffers. we can't judge the situation without seeing the allegedly thoughtful accessories. if those turn out to be fellow indie artists' leftovers, then we can conclude that santa is full of it. what i can judge with the currently available info is the giftee airing their issue publicly before getting a private response from the organizers - that is tacky.

Thank you very much #9399, what a fun and generous gift! I’m so glad to share our love of tacky stuff together! The heart leopard skirt is just wonderful, and I’ve already put it on and am working out a coord for it. The cardigan is lovely too, and my family was all feeling it and commenting on how soft it was! The Listen Flavour shirt is awesome and I love that you found an oversized one, and am looking forward to wearing all these great items! The Funassyi collection was such a great addition too- I have no idea how but none of them are duplicates! I think my favourite might be the dango keychain hahah.

I was not expecting to find the graphics card in there, but rest assured it arrived safely and seems to be in perfect condition! I can’t wait to test it out!

The skirt is so beautiful, and I am so happy to own this print. The barrette is gorgeous too and fits with a surprising amount of my stuff!

(sorry for not writing you sooner, our ip range got blocked again lol)

This is so much fun! In the order I unpacked: the narwhal card is adorable, I love how it’s so festive yet unusual in an exact way I like! It really made me laugh, and is now resting right beside the Christmas tree. I also really appreciated the text - we do seem to share lots in common! The little raccoon is so cute, I liked how it’s Canada so much and I also enjoyed the stickers and masks - definitely will be trying them out tonight. Now I can’t believe you actually downloaded the great stuff for me - I appreciate it so much!!! (feels cool hacker to receive the data from overseas man) I already downloaded everything and I’m currently exploring the stuff lol. And then the necklace... I am genuinely amazed. I never ask for jewelry, sometimes even specifically state I don’t want any because of how picky I am, but what you got me really blew my mind. You risked with this — and you hit the jackpot. It is totally my style, my favorite color, it’s perfect in so many ways. I’ll be treasuring it very, very dearly. It is really impressive how well you figured me out! 10/10 thank you so much

It's not even all "pre-handmade" because Puvithel gets their stuff manufactured in India afaik. Like the purse, tights, and the zipper pouch the other anon circled are all manufactured items from their indie brand. I find hand-made gifts from other gulls charming but... I would've been upset if I got leftover stock from someone's indie brand that had nothing to do with my tastes/wardrobe.

I run an online store too and I threw in like 1-2 things max from my own store for my giftee because it had a character she liked. I couldn't think of just sending someone existing stock for the bulk of their gift.
