SIGNUP deadline: November 16th, 11:59PM EDT.
GIFTING deadline: February 28th, 11:59PM EDT. Due to global shipping fuckery, we have added on an additional month to get your gifts out there! Your gift must be received by this time!
1. There is no minimum spending amount and no maximum spending amount.
2. International people are allowed. If you have some super big problem with it, let me know in your sign up email, but I cannot 100% guarantee you will not get someone in Australia, New Zealand, or lesser Uranus. IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THIS POSSIBILITY, DO NOT SIGN UP. Note: Canada is NOT considered "international."
3. If nobody knows who you are, you probably will not be allowed to sign up. This is to cut down on the number of deadbeat Satans. If you have less than 500 posts and nobody else knows you, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED (Exceptions are known significant others of folks, PA staff, etc)
4. People who do not send gifts will be banned.
5. DO NOT BITCH ABOUT WHAT YOU GOT. CONVERSELY, TRY TO SEND PEOPLE THINGS YOU THINK THEY WILL LIKE BASED ON WHAT THEY POST.
6. Do NOT send NSFW gifts unless they specifically OK it in the info sent to you when you get your person.
7. You MUST have a wishlist post. You can make it in this thread. It can link to Amazon or some other website with multiple ideas. Just because you consider yourself well-known doesn't mean people will know what to get for you.
Send an EMAIL where the subject is YOUR FORUM NAME to [email protected]
with the following information:
Your REAL NAME
Your MAILING ADDRESS
Your CELL PHONE NUMBER
Your PREFERENCE FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Your PREFERENCE FOR COMBINED LIST PARTICIPATION (see bottom note)

Hey a heads up - if you have allergies, incompatibilities, or other restrictions on gifts you can receive, please put those guidelines in your wishlist posts! Some people are going to be sending home-made treats and food as gifts, and it would suck if anyone breaks into hives upon opening their package. Look out for each other, my dudes.
For gifters, if your receiver has not gotten their gift by the gifting deadline (January 31st), you will be banned, no exceptions.
For receivers, once you receive your gift, you are to post that it has been received. Please do this within 2 days of receipt.
We've had SIX
YEARS OF PERFECT GIFTING! Amazing!

Thanks!EXTRA SPECIAL 2021 EDITION RULE CHANGE:
Last year we combined our gifting list with G&T and it generally went pretty well! This year we are making that participation OPTIONAL, so please add your preference for combined lists in your email - "YES" to be combined with G&T, "NO" for SE++ only.
I included my Amazon wish list in my email to you (its in my sig below as well), but I know Amazon is pretty evil, even for you. It's more of just a dumping ground of ideas for you, and also for my extended friends & family this time of year. If you do get something that's on that list but not from the Dark Bald One's website, please just mark as purchased on there. Thanks!
Other pertinent information:
My general guidelines:
I'm sure whatever you pick for me, I'll thoroughly enjoy. Feel free to ping ideas off rhylith, they know my likes/dislikes pretty well.
And in the end if you don't want to go with any of the above, that's fine! Just no NSFW stuff is all I ask. Thank you very much in advance, Satan!
Suggestions not on my amazon list would be ummmmmm
Vintage (meaning pre-plastic) tools or old hand tools (think marking gauges and levels and the like)! They do not have to be in good working order or anything!
Here's the post:
I'll start out how I usually do: If you've got something neat in your city or your life, like a candy, or a food... or ANYTHING that represents YOU or WHERE YOU ARE FROM (like a book that was super important to you or a movie that you feel like everybody needs to own) that would be the most awesome. Secret Satans is a time when I love to get to know 2 other forumers; one on the giving end and one on the receiving end.
In additon to the Amazon/Steam wishlists (which themselves are more of a "here's some idea for stuff" and less a "get this exact thing"...)
I wear a size XL T shirt from most brands. When it comes to pants, I'm too particular to even suggest you try (unless you're going for a pajama pant type thing that has a loose fit, in which case... maybe XL as well?
But really, if you're going for an item of clothing, I am a scarf man. Being in MN it gets cold a lot of the year, and when I go out I like to wear a scarf. That or sunglasses. I'd get a ton of use out of either of those.
Life-wise, I'm married and have 2 boys, aged 4 years and 1 year. If you ended up sending something for the kids, that would be fine with me (kids are wearing size 6/kids XS for the older, 24month-2T for the younger).
I've been working from home since 2020. Super lucky that my job was able to transition easily, though it has made me miss travelling. We spent the vast majority of the pandemic time so far isolating from everybody, because we were pregnant last year, and we've had a young baby this year.
Games-wise I have a Series X/Gaming PC/PS4/Switch, but I have been really playing on PC and Xbox lately. The other systems don't get that much love anymore, just due to where they physcally are in the house and a massive lack of time. I also used to read a bunch of books/listen to audiobooks, but not so much anymore... just out of a lack of time.
I also have played a bunch of board games, though nowadays I only play a few because it's just my wife and I. We've trended against anything that has a massive setup time or teardown time (e.g. Trekking the World is SUPER FUN, but it takes a long time to set up and tear down. We could play 2 games of Sagrada in the time it takes us to play 1 Trekking.) My board game collection is here, though I just made it. I hope I added everything correctly.
Outside of games, I've gotten back into watching wrestling (AEW) the past few years. It has been good to get back into that. I'm frequently cooking things for family dinner, so anything to help cook, be it a small tool or an ingredient, would be nice. I'm also looking for ways to organize my life.
I am also trying to exercise more, which has meant playing Beat Saber because apparently I can't convince myself to work out unless there is a game involved... so I'd gladly take any of the Beat Saber DLC.
No amazon this Year, because fuck Bezos. But here is a short wishlist option
In my experience the best gifts to me are the ones where someone shared something they liked and thought it might crossover with my likes. I really appreciate stuff with a personal meaning whether it’s something handcrafted, local culture, food, whatever. (there's options at the end for folks who hate thinking up gifts too)
The basics: I am a 31 year old IT/Broadband Manager who wears XL mens/unisex shirts. I have no known food allergies. I enjoy both coffee and tea, although I have a whole bunch of tea that i need to drink already. I have lived in the American southwest my entire life so that's my current climate.
Between my girlfriend and I we have 2 dogs. And an 2.5 year old named Aeric who still loves dinosaurs and things that go
Vibeogames continue to be my main form of escapism, I own every major console, a fairly beefy PC, VR kits, and am subscribed to most games subscription services. I appreciate a good book but I’m terrible at taking the time to read. Same for movies and TV, if someone doesn't really force it in front of my face I haven't been consuming too much newer media.
I’m still behind on all my home reno projects as I’ve been focusing on work all year. Just barely getting into woodworking because I need to finish all my general construction projects to make room to have a permanent workspace. In speaking of DIY home renos, as I've been completing projects I've run out of excuse for not decorating the house, and it's come to my attention that I don't really have anything cool/nice/adult to put up on the walls or on shelves.
Finally here are some charities/non-profits that I'd be perfectly happy if a donation in my name was your gift to me:
Colibri Center for Human Rights
National Lawyers Guild
Southern Poverty Law Center
I cheated and copy and pasted this from last year to start with so hopefully this helps and is not just a confusing mess!
I’m 37 and live in the cesspool that is the Panhandle of Florida.
XXL for shirts
I’m a Systems Engineer love all things nerdy and tech, some cherry picked favorites are I collect old video games, like Ice Nine Kills and In Flames, and I have every game system practically in existence.
I love dogs, have two Dobermans, a couch seal, a Corgador, two thinks that claim to be chihuahuas, (and four cats)
•I’m not allergic to anything and require no special diet (chocolate is always a plus)
•I will accept all baked goodies
•NSFW is okie dokie
• @Ladybug2332 is my wife and can also help guide you if you need additional help.
Whatever you do will be awesome I’m sure!
Also, you are welcome to go off-list if you are inspired by something or have something interesting local to you. My family likes just about any foods and we aren't aware of any allergies yet for the kiddos. For booze, I mainly like whiskey in general, but especially scotch and bourbon and blended whiskeys. My wife doesn't like them as much, but we both love crown royal's seasonal salted caramel.
One thing that might be cool is some new PA merch, especially mugs. I had the Blue PA logo mug from the web series but it broke earlier this year. Looking at the options online, the red fleshreaper one is also pretty cool and fits with the forum Diablo clan name.
We've been really enjoying our PS5, maybe a little too much because we already killed a controller. It'd be nice to have a second one again, any color is fine. I'm interested in Kena and Deathloop, after hearing good things about either of those, and my son might like to watch or maybe even play parts of Kena. A gift card would be fine too, as we have the disk one but mostly buy digital anyway, and both Horizon and Elden Ring are looming.
I'll try to think of some more things!
Hope all is well with you and yours, and thank you in advance!
edit- As usual, use smile.amazon.com to have a share of your stuff's costs routed to the charity of your choice. We might all be under Bezos' thumb but at least we can claw a bit of it back!
I frequent the webcomic, anime, FGO and FFXIV (here and the MMO category) threads mainly, but I can also be found in the job, science, and history threads. The only webcomic I have in print is Octopus Pie, which is something I keep meaning to fix: Kill Six Billion Demons and Stand Still, Stay Silent are at the top of my list. The former is carried by Image Comics, and SSSS by Hiveworks. I've also got a Steam wishlist, but I mostly use it to keep track of sales. Something I've been trying to track down without much luck are prints of the FFXIV vinyl edition covers for the Stormblood and Shadowbringers albums. I've got a pile of board games on my Amazon list, but I've also been picking up jigsaw puzzles when I see one I like (1000 pieces generally, I don't have space for anything bigger than that). I haven't really been indulging in hobbies lately, but I've been wanting to get the necessary tools to start matting my pictures for a while (space constraints for the last eight years meant I couldn't). I know I can be a pain in the ass to shop for, so if you have questions then by all means reach out through an imp.
Thanks for signing up to send me stuff! Big fan of that, good work!
I'm hopefully an easy person to buy for as I have a wide variety of interests and am extremely excited by the prospect of opening boxes and/or envelopes. I'm a 32-year-old (...christ...) woman in Canada who has pretty broad tastes in video games, comic books, fantasy novels, Making Stuff, board games, hockey, martial arts, dogs, ... I'll try to fill out a Gift Hero list with suggestions - I'd prefer not-Amazon if possible, though if you're ordering from across the world and struggling to find local delivery options I understand.
I'm currently living at home, but there is a chance we move in January as we're struggling with buying into the housing market, and if that happens past your gift-delivery time I'll let Brolo know. So while home decor options are nice, if you pick any of that try to keep it small if possible (no full-scale statues, please).
In terms of actual hints about my interests:
- Burgle Bros
- 5 Minute Dungeon
- 5 Minute Marvel
- Avengers Infinity War Thanos Rising
- Eldritch Horror
- Pandemic Legacy Season 1
- Pandemic Legacy Season 2
- Last Night on Earth
- Die Hard
- Codenames: Marvel
- Betrayal at House on the Hill (and expansion)
- Betrayal Legacy
- Hail Hydra
- Secret Hitler
- Dead of Winter
- Inhuman Conditions
- Marvel Villainous
- Spartacus (I would LOVE the Serpent and the Wolf expansion to this but it basically does not exist)
- Sheriff of Nottingham
- Love Letter
- A bunch of types of Flux
Hopefully that's enough to start! If you need more details in any direction, please let me know via an imp! Thanks again!

I am super excited to get this year over with, it has been another dumpster fire and I’m hoping for better luck in 2022.
Included below is an Elfster list for me. My Amazon is also on there (kind of) but last year Amazon fucked me over hardcore and deleted everything so I haven’t been able to really accrue a list yet, I’m still tying to fix last years mistakes. BUT don’t feel like you must pick from the list! If you have something you love, something you’re into and want to share, something cool then send it on! I invite all options and awesomeness you wish to impart on me.
A little about me….
I’m 36, female (she/her) and live in Florida. It doesn’t get cold here but for like two weeks out of the year so….yeah
5’0 and XXL in shirts
I’m a nurse and recently became an NP. I teach nursing students full time at our local college.
I love all things girly, sparkly, rainbow-y….I’m pretty typical.
My collections include Hello Kitty, Pusheen, cool medical/anatomical art and items, unicorns.
I have a switch but own pretty much all the games I like except for anything not released. I play Final Fantasy XIV online and my main is a Dancer
I LOVE murder mystery, serial killer, true crime
I’m a dog mom and have 2 Dobermans, 2 chihuahuas, and 2 mix breed
I also have 4 cats
•I’m not allergic to anything and require no special diet (chocolate is always a plus)
•I will accept all baked goodies
•NSFW is okie dokie
•I’m not a huge reader, but if you like something and feel I need to read it, send it on
•@Blackhawk1313 is my husband and can also help guide you if you need additional help.
Whatever you have planned, I’m sure is amazing and I can’t wait to see it!
Thank you again Satan!
Video games (Steam account link in signature image), notably RPGs, tactics and strategy games, roguelikes/roguelites, card games, and puzzle games. My only working console this days is a Switch.
Books: Usually I read Sci-Fi and Fantasy stuff. Have read stuff like Discworld, Wheel of Time, GoT, Stormlight Archives, Dresden Files, Dune, Laundry Files, Wayfarers, Broken Earth, etc.
TV/Movies: Like the MCU, anime (shounen stuff like MHA or Jujutsu Kaisen, oddball comedies/slice of life like Kaguya-Sama, Saiki K, or Eizouken mostly), animation (Steven Universe, AtLA, Gravity Falls, The Owl House, Adventure Time, Futurama, The Simpsons), uh good...television and movie stuff in general I guess.
Music: Video game soundtracks, classic music, jazz (including places where those combine) make up the bulk of my listening but other stuff like Hades Town, musical soundtracks, singer/songwriter stuff is also in there . Piano and choral stuff. I play piano and sing. I own the Piano Collections books for FF7, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 15.
Food: I'm an adequate cook and love eating food of most types (don't like seafood in general and can't even with shellfish. No allergy, just hate them.) I love baked goods, but am just a single person and have a family history of diabetes so keep that in mind if volume of sweets is something to consider.
I wear a medium in shirts.
I have 2 cats that are basically my children.
I generally don't need decorative items that take up my limited table/counter space, but have plenty of walls to hang things on
A lot of times the things I know I like I already have, so things that other people think are cool are neat
Specific wishlist things ranging from easily attainable to wild fantasy
More Ben Folds' sheet music books (I only have Rockin' the Suburbs)
Xbox Series X controller + USBc cable
Maybe a yoga mat so I stop minorly injuring myself when using my Ring Fit.
Books: Lean UX: Designing Great Products With Agile Teams
About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design
Universal Principles of Design
(I'm thinking about transitioning in UX is why)
Whisks of various sizes. I only have 1 regular sized whisk.
New fingerless gloves. My apartment is always cold in the winter so they're nice for piano and video games. My cheapo 4 dollar amazon jobbos from a few years ago are starting to unravel.
The latest Expanse book.
My classical piano library is actually pretty thin. I have a few copies of pieces I worked on in high school and college, and a sort of smorgasbord book that was included with my piano. All the other classical music books we had were technically my sister's and she took them when she moved. I like Chopin, Beethoven, and Brahms especially. I don't really have any from folks like Satie, Scriabin, or Debussy either and they're all great. Actually anything newer than Mozart, and not something bonkers hard like Liszt or Rachmaninoff is great. If the book is spiral/ring bound, or one of those thinner ones with just a few pieces staple bound, those are ideal because they actually stay open. Normal bound books, especially bigger ones are a pain to fight with on a stand. Gotta keep smooshing and folding and cracking the spine.
The Final Fantasy Piano Opera books (these are out of print i think)
The FF 12, 10-2, and 14 piano collection books
I'm thinking of maybe getting into streaming, so possibly a dedicated mic or camera
Regarding the combining with G&T thing, if I sign up here with the request to not be included in the G&T crowd, would we be allowed to sign up for the G&T Santa as well in an attempt to maximize gifting?
Or is that going to be making things more complicated than a gift exchange should be?
More complicated - please only sign up once.

as long as it's also ticking the NSFW checkbox...
I'm not sure anything at the shop is NSFW, but if I get you, I will weld a dick onto it somewhere.
... what have i done
Potentially gotten a dick-cactus sculpture.
I can probably weld a dick onto anything, if that's your preference, just know it will look terrible.
may want to see a doctor .... for your sake, hopefully an optometrist
edit: the Christmas season is upon us!
Congratulations. You did it again, you waded through another year and came out in the giving spirit, I'm proud of you.
Spurred on by a surprisingly supportive creative director at my new job, I've been focusing for the first time in my life on learning to illustrate. I can use adobe illustrator very efficiently, but I can't use it to create original illustrations - I can't draw. So I'm hoping to change that! I've been drawing with pens and pencils every day and following a couple of lesson plans (mostly Draw a Box), but I am very much enjoying experimenting with new drawing tools and media! I have a few things on my wishlist, but right now it's all fun and exciting so have at it!
I like to cook and bake, but my current kitchen is small and getting filled up with too many gadgets. I recently got into pour over coffee and basically don't have anything so if that's a thing you're also into you're welcome to hook me up with your favorite goodies. I like to play D&D, build model kits, listen to podcasts and audiobooks and watch movies. Please don't buy me clothes unless explicitly on my wishlist. I am into embroidered patches! Weird ones, funny ones, local ones, overtly leftist political ones - go nuts.
I play and DM 5e D&D at least once or twice a week and I'm in the middle of writing a self-contained one-shot adventure based on Tarot cards that I hope to polish enough to sell.
I have a PlayStation 5 and a Nintendo Switch and also a PC that will play video games but not like... well. if you want my PSN or Steam account deets please ask through an imp.
Usually I encourage my Satan to send gifts to my US postbox, but this year I'm wary of border travel wrt covid, so I'm only including my amazon.ca wishlist which can be found here. I will be updating that list and probably also this post over the following weeks. And hey if you find an item on there you'd like to get me but you wanna order it from a local supplier instead then do that because don't put money in Bezos' pocket on my behalf.
I love you and Happy hunting!
Need some stuff designed or printed? I can help with that.
Steam // Secret Satan
Next year though…I’LL HAVE THE MONEY
Yeah I'm probably in the same boat actually
Even groceries have gotten really bad lately
aww heck, it's christmas, we can give both!
Is this anything?
It's a sign you may want to visit your doctor.
Or an anonymous clinic somewhere on the far side of town.
