    Yeah, now that it comes up I don't actually recall anyone ever getting something truly NSFW and I've done it for 10+ years at this point.

    So much like Koopah, booze and M rated games are ok. But please no sex toys.

    Stupid question maybe but I know we always seem to have that question about NSFW gifts, but what is it that prompted that? I put I wasn't opposed to them, but it got me thinking about what actually was gifted in the past. I'm guessing an M rated game isn't considered NSFW, so was it booze or art books with nudity or some nipple clamps or what?

    Please keep in mind this is a videogame forum where a surprising amount of associated groups or guilds in online games based out of these forums have some connection to "Wang" in their name.
    It's not used as much as it used to be, but having some kind of disclaimer to please not include something you might have trouble explaining to a family member on Christmas morning probably seemed like a good idea back in the day.

    While also giving people the option to say "Hey, I'm a weirdo who lives alone, if you really want to send me a dildo that you think I'd like, knock yourself out." Having an opt-in/opt-out seems like a win-win for everyone involved.

    I think in practice it's been mostly booze but with plenty of threats of the deeper unsafeties

    Suggestions:
    I'm a big Boba Fett fan so I have most of the Boba Fett Lego but not much outside of that. I have a PC and a Switch.
    Steam Wishlist
    I play Hearthstone a lot of the time and I have a lot of tabletop games as well.

    And I am a huge NF fan. He’s a rapper if you want to look him up.

    If you would want to get me something to put up on a wall I would greatly appreciate it as most of my wall hangings have vanished to another's condo for some strange reason. I do have a dog so any treats for her would be good. Finally, any local food stuffs would be great. I enjoyed last year getting Louisiana local food and still use Slap Ya Mama on things.

    I've been distracted by moving jobs so lost track of time on this, but getting in as it's always been a fun highlight of this time of year.
    Wishlist / Suggestion Post
    I'm a vegetarian, for any food related ideas.

    Books: I read a lot, and really enjoy Fantasy and Sci-Fi books. I'm also not particularly picky, and can find enjoyment in pretty much anything, so if you've liked it, chances are I'll enjoy it. I don't really listen to audiobooks.
    Video Games I have a Switch, an Oculus (which sounds incredibly creepy) and a PC - primarily game on the PC
    Gardening I suck at it, but I've been trying to learn, and Xmas occurs in Summer here, so with luck I'll be harvesting potatoes. Customs here is very strict, so live plants or seeds would be a bad idea, but things to learn about gardening, and how to suck less at it would certainly be an idea. Ornamental Dragons / Gnomes / Wookie's have also been much appreciated in the past.
    Cooking I enjoy cooking, and despite being Vegetarian myself, will also cook non-vegetarian food for others, so cookbooks or other such instructions are highly valued. My range is pretty limited, but I enjoy learning from other areas, so if you have some regional cuisine where you're from, I'd love to learn about it.
    Booze Mostly Whiskey / Gin, but I'll try basically anything.
    Dragons I'm kind of obsessive on dragons, so if you're all out of ideas, this has been used to great effect in prior years.

    Uhh uhh... *panic*!

    Santa here is my Steam wishlist, I know it's gotten really big and I haven't organized it or pruned it in a while:
    https://store.steampowered.com/wishlist/id/Span_Wolf/
    There is plenty of good stuff on there, though I'm also sure plenty of games I've wishlisted a long time ago have since come out and been total stinkers... Feel free to avoid those.

    I have several Amazon wishlists, but no real order of importance within the individual wishlists.
    This one is for all my games, tech and other general wishes: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0VW2PYQAWHL
    This one is for books, movies, TV shows, music: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/EK5W00YDFRIU
    This one is for figures and general collectibles: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2ZJLDO57EADK4 (I'm currently 3 characters shy of having the full main One Piece crew, Usopp, Robin, and Jinbei)

    If clothing is a thing, I used to wear a medium shirt, but then I got fat during Covid lockdowns and am now a large. I'm trying to work my way back down to my pre-Covid weight though.

    I don't mind NSFW gifts.

    I own all the modern consoles and handhelds (Also still have my Dreamcast hooked up), a gaming PC, and have a few VR headsets (Index, Quest 2, and PSVR just for Sony exclusives).

    I did not know that Secret Santas exist online. How does this actually work? How do send or receive the gifts? Are the gifts also virtual or can be your choice. It is a nice idea to take pictures of the gifts you received. It just to show your appreciation.

    It's pretty straight forward. The people running the exchange send out messages with the name and signup information of your Santee, you buy a gift and get it to them however you can.
    Sometimes you get a Santee that is close enough for an in person delivery, normally you have to ship it to them. If you shop online, you can normally ship directly to you Santee.
    Online gifts are acceptable, like Steam games or Humble Bundles or gift cards to them. Given the current state of global shipping, I'm guessing that may be a popular option this year.

    I see that you joined the forum today, so here's hoping you stay around long enough to join in the seasonal merriment next year (and aren't just a bot that is doing a thing I don't understand).

    Signup posting -
    45, live in house with wife and 9+ cats (we have a room to foster kittens). Have Xbone, PS4, Switch, and gaming PC. Trying to get a PS5. Only console game I've picked up in a long while is Metroid Dread. Recently I've started baking as a hobby, mostly cakes. I don't know what I'm doing, I just follow recipes. I'm also trying to relearn how to play bass, and learn guitar and voice. And maybe keyboard. I spend a lot of time in the garden, putting plants in the ground and watching them die. Less so than before, however. I built a koi pond, and I think they're still alive.

    I used to be huge into League of Legends, but anxiety issues made me a shitty teammate, so I phased that out. I'm on meds now and Arcane looks good... I may be back to it soon. Recently I've been playing a lot of Outriders, and a bit of Destiny on gamepass. My little gaming circle has been loving Wildermyth and Gloomhaven, and we try out survival/building games like Valheim and Grounded but they don't stick for long. My favorites are Dark Souls and Monster Hunter, but anything in those lines are day one purchases.

    One of the pills I was taking made it hard to focus long enough to read a book, so I have a huge backlog I'm trying to work through now. But I'm huge into the MCU and never actually read a lot of comics. So I really enjoy graphic novels - I have all of Injustice, some Hawkeye, and anything Kevin Smith came near back in the 90's.

    You know, I completely disregarded my baby doggy in my info. Here's some info for her if my elf comes around again.

    Her name is Skye, she's a pitbull and almost three and a half years old. We got her last June, and she loves treats and squishy/squeaky toys. She also loves benebones.

    Also was slightly concerned because I thought she was a huge monster dog, but realized she has her own little couch.

    I mean, I'd do what @Proxy the Elf asks since the alternative includes up to the loss of life. :biggrin:

    Seriously though, Proxy usually is just asking for info to pass to someone else anonymously. Did they explain why they needed the address? I'd assume it's ok, but totally understandable if you'd want more details before handing your address over.
