TalkNerdy Master List Secret Santa
Introducing the first ever TalkNerdy Secret Santa!
I thought it would be fun for us to do something together and what is better than book mail!? Being this is the first ever Secret Santa I am going to test out a few ways to do this and we’ll see how they go, this will be the deciding factor in future Secret Santas. There will be 2 separate lists in an effort to give everyone the ability to save on cost and the option to personalize your gift. Whichever option you choose will be the list you will be on so you are paired with someone who has chosen the same option. Everyone will need to make a “wishlist” of books to choose from so your Secret Santa can “shop” from the list for what to get you. Please note, your shipping address will need to be on file with TalkNerdy to be able to participate.
Option 1: Amazon Wishlist
Those who choose to participate in the Amazon wishlist option will be paired with others in their country to save on shipping costs. You will need to make an Amazon Wishlist instead of a TalkNerdy Wishlist that your fellow bloggers will be able to purchase from and have shipped directly to you. You will need to provide your proof of purchase and tracking when you send your paired person’s gift to ensure everyone is following through and sending their gifts. TalkNerdy will pair you with someone in your country and send you the wishlist of who you are paired with. If you do not want to be notified of what the person buys for you, make sure you turn that option off on your wishlist! There will be a $30 spending cap on all Amazon Wishlist’s. (Including shipping)
Option 2 : TalkNerdy Build-a-Box
Those who choose to participate in the TalkNerdy option will be paired with others who chose this option as well. This is not the cost effective option as you’ll be paying shipping from the US to whichever country of the person you are paired with, but it gives you the ability to personalize your gift and choose what you want to send, and versa. This is where you will really be able to be creative with your gifts! You will need to make a TalkNerdy Wishlist so that your fellow bloggers will be able to design your box based on what you would like to receive. Purchases will be made via Square Invoice and must be paid within one week. TalkNerdy will pair you with another blogger in this category and you will receive their wishlist to design the box you would like to send. No one will know who they are paired with until they receive their box and open the gift. There will be 2 versions of the Build-a-Box to give 2 tier’s of a spending cap. You will only be paired with someone in your tier. You will need to provide your shirt size for both in the case of a shirt being chosen for your box no matter which tier. The shirt sizes are mens, on the larger scale, and black in color.
Tier 1: Paperback Book & Customizable Book T-Shirt
(limited quantities so when this option sells out there will be a replacement merch item)
Tier 2: Customizable Book Box
No set merch or book options, you can choose the merch items, the possibility of a signed book, you can even add alcohol to your book box provided the receiver is of age. (for the option to have alcohol included, such as the mini shot bottles, you will need to provide a copy of a legal ID if you are ok with the sender purchasing alcohol for your box.)
