Hi folks, this is Del and it's that time of year again (time passes so quickly).   :santahat;   Being either crazy or a glutton for punishment  :urcrazy; I volunteered to look after the Holiday gift exchange again this year on the IHD.com forums


(What follows are the tried and tested rules and regs.  Please read them carefully before committing yourself to the fun of gift buying and gift receiving.)

Here are the details:

--- This is a "Secret Santa" type of exchange.  I will randomly draw names to assign people. You will not know who is sending you a gift. You will only know who you are sending to (you can identify yourself in the package.)

--- Gift(s) value should be around US$10.00-$20.00, but no less than $10.00.

--- You must sign up by PM'ing your info to me here  NO LATER THAN Nov. 1. Please try not to send me you info for this forum on facebook because I am looking after the exchange on the facebook group as well and I want to try to keep everything separate!! To be included on the Holiday Exchange list you must send me your snail mail address and phone number .  This is separate from the ihatedialysis Facebook gift exchange. You may participate in both exchanges.

--- Names will be drawn and announced (by PM) on November 2nd.

--- Gifts must be mailed out NO LATER THAN November 20th, and sooner if you are sending overseas.

If you want to participate, please PM to Del. We will have copies of all the mailing addresses, and of course whoever is sending you a gift will have your address, but it will not be posted publicly.  I will not send out phone numbers, those are for office use only.

Please use this format in the PM:

   Screen name
   Real name (first and last)
   Complete mailing address
   Phone number
   If you are willing to sending a gift overseas (it may cost a little extra for shipping)
  Everybody must include a telephone #

I will post a final list of who is participating as I receive the information.   I am NOT responsible for contacting people who participated in the past to ask if they want to participate this year.

If you sign up for the exchange and fail to send a gift you will be banned from IHD for 90 days.   

If you have any questions, please post in this thread or PM del.

Those who participated last year had a marvelous time! (It is a lot of fun to see what fun things you get!)
Again this year there will be a holiday gift exchange on the facebook group as well as on this site.

Ready, Set, GET SHOPPING!!

Ha ha ha ha! I was out shopping the other day and saw things I was considering for fellow IHDers in case I got them for the exchange.  :rofl;

Can hardly wait to start shopping!

This super fun thing to do and to get a surprise in the mail is always fun.


I am going to say a few things as the admin of the site here about the Gift Exchange:

The gift exchange is voluntary and offered to our members for fun during the holidays.
If you sign up, you MUST complete your mission of sending a gift.
Be THOUGHTFUL when picking out gifts. especially when giving to a spouse of a member.
A few members have received things that were slightly offensive to them in some years.
If you are not sure, PM Del or me to ask the member for more info.
If you sign up and end up not being able to send a gift please PM me or Del asap and we can cover it for you if needed.

The IHD.com forum and Facebook lists are separate so if you sign up for both, you are sending two gifts to two different people.


Please contact either Del or Kitkatz if there is a problem.

Messages have been sent with the name of the person you have to buy for!!!!  Most were sent as PMs from this forum but a few people I had to contact through facebook.  If you signed up and didn't receive  a message let me know asap!!  Let the fun begin!!  Don't forget to post likes/dislikes etc to help your secret santa out.  :santahat;
