    Send the stuff through Amazon and then send like a card or something?

    I love my Satanee, which makes it all the more difficult to choose what and how to do this.

    The eternal question of presentation vs price.

    I could buy and send more things if I just let Amazon ship it directly.

    Or I could buy and send less things, but add a personal touch if I ship it to myself and then my person.

    Decision '11.

    I have the same ordeal in both this and the G&T one

    For both, I plan on just shipping stuff from wherever I get it, and sending Amazon gift notes with the stuff I order there, and mailing a note singularly by itself (which has the possibility of getting there before any of the gifts and ruining the surprise, but that's a risk I'll take)

    I can send things through amazon directly? How do I do this.

    You can send gift messages attached to your gifts through Amazon, so that saves time

    If their wishlist has their address, add it from their wish list and their address becomes one of the shipping address options.

    they are kind of confusing to find, though

    Especially if you don't bother looking at the order slip

    I am going to try and get everything for my person in one box, since I have Prime I can save some money to then immediately turn around and spend at the post office.

    Try regular searching it and buying it on Amazon, then just type the address and info onto the shipping address

    And if that doesn't work, that definitely sucks

    buy a card and a pen from amazon and have it shipped to your satan with the message "write your own damn note"

    Yeah I think I'll probably do some sort of card with Amazon or something or other. I'll figure something out. I've got to put my Amazon Prime account to use for more than just having Harry Potter and Skyrim show up on release day though.

    Last year I barely beat you in getting gifts to my Satanee first.

    Sadly, I can't beat you this year unless I run out to the store, buy some stuff and drive several hours through the night and show up on my Satanee's doorstep in the wee hours of the morning.

    I really don't know why I don't do this.

    Unless they've changed their policy since last year, that works. That's what I've done for the past two years or so. Just make sure the billing address is your address and the shipping address is there's. Pretty standard.

    Getting Amazon Prime seems like a good idea for this.

    So after calculating, with the gifts I currently plan (or hope) to get for my Satanee, I would wind up spending

    $202.58 at most

    :[ Dang looks like I either have to get rid of some things, or save money and wait to buy them

    Trying to figure out what kind of stuff I can jam into an envelope and still have it count as a "letter"

    5 day delivery for like 5 bucks verses 4 weeks for $100 for a package

    shipping sucks

    He was second last year and is second this year (Smart Hero's satan beat him to it).

    To say that Stale is taking it well would be a bold face lie.

    So, my satanee is going to be a fun one, and I have some ideas already.

    My only reservation is that one of the ideas is something I gave last year's satanee. If that something is a really cool thing with a local twist, that's okay right?

  • MarthMarth Contemplative Kermit Registered User regular
    I already used my free year. It's half off for students, which is pretty good. The book sharing program makes it a better deal.

    I've given my satanee a nerf nitefinder like 3 times over the years

    aint nothin wrong with repeating something that's good

    Hello, Satan!

    I'm Fearghaill, you may remember me from my occasional bursts of active posting, followed by long months of lurking.

    But you probably don't.

    I gave Neville an amazon wishlist, and I'd be happy to get anything from that, but if you want to do something different, that's cool too.

    Things I like: Cooking, comic books, video games (PS3/PC only please), books or whatever on game design and/or martial arts

    I've also been on a bit of a board game kick lately, if you know of any awesome games you feel I should own/play that would be awesome too.

    Alternately, if you are a god of christmas gifting, this would be the greatest thing ever. But it's expensive so you probably shouldn't. Giant. Mechanical. Kraken.

    okay so I bought from three different places, the one that arrives first is from Amazon so I put a gift note in that. There should be two additional shipments after that. The latest the third package is supposed to show up is December 2nd.

    Only so much I could spend, but I hope it's enough!

    There's a little slot thing you can test it on, if it fits, it counts. If not, they'll send it back to you angrily.

    if I manage to win another woot bag of crap I'm giving it to my satanee.

    I'll order things eventually, but as of right now I have 8 (!) gifts already in mind.

    Somebody's gonna be extremely happy, I'll make damn sure of that :]

    I mean I'd just have the conversation with the ladies in the post office. They're very nice.

    I'm just glad I didn't get Keith this year. Shipping Darwyn Cooke would be unbelievably expensive, even just Halifax to Philadelphia.

    It is not.

    I currently have planned, at least $202.58 worth of gifts to buy for my Satanee.

    If you were my Satanee, I'd have at least $500, and that would just be on the first two gifts.

    So my plan is to ship some stuff directly from amazon and then send a more personalised gift myself. This is totally fine, right?

    Of course!

    Heck, even if you shipped everything from Amazon, and only personalized the notes attached, as long as it came from the heart then it's downright lovely!
