There are 2 ideas floating around. First is to have a Christmas Gifting as on another web group where everyone puts there name down and says what they are going to Gift.

the second option is to not tell anyone what we are going to gift but to be told who your gifting it ..

Both will work in and on a live YouTube Stream, so that no one thinks any favouritism is happening or cheery picking of prizes.

Both will require at least 1oz of Silver in the form of bullion to be gifted. Everyone will be notified in the first week of December to ensure it gets anywhere it needs to be before Xmas.

Do not feel like you need to put in more than an oz of Silver. You can be creative and have a special bullion round as a gift. perhaps you have multiples....

This is not a competition on who gives the largest value prize.... so option 1 will be listing what we are giving, option 2 is not and keeping it a secret.

I think that in addition there needs to be a minimum and a maximum value to the gifts. It's important that nobody feels pressured to spend more than they are comfortable doing and that nobody feels either embarrassed or short-changed by a large discrepancy between what they have given and what they have received.

The minimum is 1oz of silver, I can't see a upper limit as a problem. But I understand if we gift a 1 oz 007 coin and we receive a 1/10th piece if gold hypothetically we would feel embarrassed
But then again I like to personally send fun gifts too.

I think we're on the same page - we want everybody to enjoy the Secret Santa and have fun.
PS Don't forget to update the number of days that the survey has to run - the poll post isn't dated.

It shows that there is 4 days left remaining. I am not sure what you mean. If I messed up, ( very possible ) feel free to edit it.

I want everyone to have a voice.

It was posted yesterday, and was stated to end in four days. We are now a day on, and it still says it will end in 4 days. If it said 4 days from a given date, then it would never need amending.

It was posted for 5 days. 
But as a minute went by it switched to 4. It is showing as 3 today. 
I thought I made a mistake  ( not uncommon) lol

The countdown has begun.
