It’s hard to get into the holiday spirit while it’s still sunny and warm, but one of my favorite events of the year is now open for registration!
For the 5th year in a row, I am super excited to be participating in the annual FlyerTalk Secret Santa. Dedicated FT member wharves and many other volunteers have organized this FlyerTalk tradition for over a decade, and it’s honestly something I look forward to participating in every year.How the FlyerTalk “Secret Santa” works is that you are paired up with another random FlyerTalk member, unless you specifically request someone, and they’re responsible for giving you your holiday present worth a minimum of $50.00 out-of-pocket. In order to receive your gift, you must be a “Secret Santa” as well. You can be paired up a total of 5 times (meaning, you will receive and purchase a total of 5 gifts).
As a kid, I’ve always enjoyed Secret Santa arrangements because I loved the thought and challenge of picking out a great gift for someone. The good thing about the FlyerTalk Secret Santa is that since we’re dealing with a group of seasoned-travelers, there are high chances of getting a gift in return that you actually could use and will enjoy. Plus, when you register, you’ll fill out a short questionnaire, sharing a little bit about yourself and leaving clues as to what you might like in order to help your Santa out.
If you’re interested in participating, you have until November 11, 2016 to declare your interest. You can read all about the complete details/register in the official thread here. I think it’s going to be an awesome and exciting experience yet again. In the past, my FT Santas have been great!
