The limit is $15, and you should try to be close but no one is going to bust you if you're a little over. We want to make it fair for everyone so everyone gets something similar in value. But it sure does make it a challenge!

I've actually been buying for my SS since right after last Christmas. Got stuff on clearance then, and have been picking up a thing here or there along the way. But honestly I don't think I've even spent $5! So I still have at least $10 to customize for my person.

As requested, here is a US Postal Service Guide on items restricted in other countries

http://pe.usps.gov/text/imm/immctry.html

The shipping guidelines for the US are here, but expect them to take much longer around Christmas.

There is information for Canada Post here:

http://www.canadapost.ca/personal/pr.../default-e.asp

If someone from the UK could post their info, that would be great!

Well I've just been reading the regulations and for anybody from the UK who is posting to the USA be sure to read this about sending food,That also includes cat munchies and cat food.

If your parcel is a personal gift you don't need clearance but you will have to state clearly on the parcel that it is a personal gift

What about if you are in the UK? $15 is about £7.88 here and living in London I can tell you that doesn't buy too much. I personally didn't know there was a limit and my personal limit was about £15-20. Having lived in the US and in England I can say it wouldn't be fair as $15 in the states takes you a lot further than £8 in England.

I don't want to break any rules so I will spend £7.88 if that's the rule.

$15 will definitely stretch a lot further than £7.88, from what I seen from last year's thread most people went a little over

Something i just remembered from when I did a SS a few years back with the Grobanites (still am one, just lapsed a bit there). Our coordinator got a PO Box from a central location. Now I realize this may not work for folks here from outside the US, but it helped the anonymity of those of us in the States. When we sent our packages, we all sent FROM the same address... putting the PO box in the From section. That way there were no clues on the package itself.

i don't remember how they resolved it for overseas senders... but someone may have an idea here...

And a PO box here is cheap if you go with the actual USPS... the private box places are $$$.

In the US, you also have the option of not putting your address on it. There will always be a postmark though.

I did some more fantastic bargain SS shopping this morning!

Oh do you now?

Well,I am really chuffed with who I get to be SS for

Considering hardly anybody knows that much about me,It is really quite eerie how much we have in common
**Humms tune from Twilight zone**

Like somebody else said(sorry can't remember who said it ) It's gonna be like buying for myself but giving it away

Tiggy is offering early Christmas kisses if they'll tell him who has his meowmy's name!

Sssssssssshhhhhhhhhh!
post #46 of 53
Tiggy will get more than kisses if he waits for the SS pressie - so really Tiggy doesn't want to know
post #47 of 53
I'll pretend I'm you SS Susie, if Tiggy will give me kisses!

I'm soooo excited about buying for my SS...I'm afraid I'll go nuts! Last year was sooo much fun! It deffinately gets me looking forward to the holiday.

I am SO disappointed I missed the cut-off I have been flat out and haven't been on the computer at all unless it is for work.

I LOVED Secret Santa last year it was so much fun.

Boo hoo waaaaahhhhhhhhh.

Ah, I didn't know the limit was $15. I've spent $25 and I'm still making something. Oh well, it'll be a few nice gifts, no worries on my part.
