Please excuse the lateness of tonight’s post; I’ve been busy experiencing life and getting ideas for other posts (see Monday for a clearer picture).
It was started as a means to allow redditors to give gifts to each other as Secret Santas, but now it holds exchanges every year throughout the year and also serves as a place to organise meetups.
All you need to be a part of it is create both a Reddit and Reddit gifts account, sign up to an exchange, wait until you get your giftee’s details, then shop around online and send it to them before the end date. It also opporates on a credit system, so you start with 1 credit, it costs 1 credit to do an exchange and you get that back plus a bonus credit when you complete the exchange. Even if you don’t get anything you’re generating more kindess into the world, which is always a good thing.
There’s more details in their FAQ if you need it, but I highly recommend it if you have a bit of cash to spare and have a knack for buying awesome gifts, or just want to spread the love. Let me know if you do, especially if you get anything!
See you Friday
