I guess when I put glassware I was more imagining bento boxes or tumblers, but yes, I'd hope it's common sense to send something like that directly from a retailer or package it EXTREMELY well.
So, it is possible that the white day exchange isn't on there yet (confirming this with the old santa) and that would grow the number of those whitelisted. On the list we were given, I'd say there's about 100 names or so, which is less than participated in both. I think there are a good mix of newbies as well as previous participants!
I'd recommend you put things you're interested in receiving. If you put a bunch of interests and then you open the box and there's nothing lolita at all, will you be a little disappointed? It shouldn't be overwhelming for a gifter, what's important is that you give accurate and clear indication of what you're interested in and be okay with receiving a gift related to anything you're interested in.
It's funny, because I stopped for a second and almost put that on the form. But that would be another criterion to match by and I'm a masochist but a realistic masochist. if someone has the issue where it's that bad, they should indicate that in the "I don't want this" section and the santa, if they forsee this as an issue, can figure out some way to mitigate that issue, like by sending gifts directly from the retailers, keeping them somewhere away from pets, etc. It hasn't been on any past forms but maybe next exchange if it turns out to be a more prevalent problem.
So, that's a unique situation and a personal preference, I'd say. Technically, it would be fine to select yes or no either way, but I think you should hit 'yes, definitely' anyway because you'll get someone who will certainly appreciate your effort and talent.
Yep! Anything like that is fine, put it in the optional 'link 3-5 items' section.
