WOW! what a great year!
We ended up with almost 600 participants this year, and while that is a bit less than in previous years.....it also happened in less time! (The site is still up and functional for a few more days for that last minute gift giving spree) :D

Don't forget to post photos of the gifts you received this year, if you haven't already! It is the perfect way to thank your Secret Santa!

I want to thank my newest elf....coder extraordinaire +David Butler, who stepped in at the last moment to save us, when our previous coder started a business and was inundated with her own work.

Also a big thank you to my 3 returning elves. +Lori Friedrich, +Kyla Myers and +LaDonna Pride.

These are the stories that the Elves and I just love to share. This is a beautiful example of a caring individual selflessly giving a gift that is appreciated more than they could possibly have known.

You make us proud. <3

My teary eyed thank you I didn't get to post last night...

...this was a +Secret Santa​​​ #santagift

Most of you know I'm a single momma on a tight budget. Christmas for my kids at my house was going to be a little harder this year. I try to get them each one big thing and then a few little things like I did last year. My boyfriend really helped out a lot too. One of the things my oldest daughter wanted was a sewing machine, a $20 one from Walmart to be exact. But she uses a sewing machine in a cabinet at her grandma's house, she could use a real one if she had one. So I put this on my wish list on a whim...

Tonight at dinner she says, "Man, I really hope I get a $20 sewing machine for Christmas. You know how much stuff I could make with a real one kinda like that?" The thing is, it isn't the sewing machine that breaks my heart, it's the fact she keeps saying $20. Like that's the magic number, she knows it's not too expensive for mom to buy. I looked at my mom and smiled, because my Secret Santa did my daughter a good one. She gets a really nice sewing machine for Christmas. I can't wait to see her face and all the stuff she's gonna make.

Thank you so very much, I love you #motherplussers!

Jeebus, I didn't think I'd start crying all over again.

If you have entered all your information on the Secret Santa sign-up....and then gone looking for your list, but cannot find it....there are 2 possible reasons. 1) an elf hasn't been over to verify new registrations. or 2) your list has a problem.

A lovely story of giving from one of our many elves.

Sometimes, the G+ +Secret Santa thing can make for a very good story.

The first year I participated in Secret Santa here on Google+, I sent something that I wanted for myself to someone else. That thing was a Doctor Who Journal of Impossible Things. I loved the way it was done, and what I saw of the pages within looked magical and fun.

So after I sent it, I added it to my own wish list. I thought I'd get it at some point, but I wasn't in a rush.

Yesterday, I received my very own Journal via the awesome +Murphy Jacobs. I haven't been able to send out any gifts this year because of a few unexpected expenses (£400 for my car to be road safe again among them), so I wasn't expecting anything, and this particular gift brought a happy tear, not only because of the thoughtfulness of it, but because of the story. Google+ retains its magic, and that's because it retains the people that makes it magical. People like Santa, his elves, and +Murphy Jacobs :D

Thank you!

If someone has not had a gift purchased for them the heart on the left will be empty.

If someone has had a gift purchased for them the heart on the left will be full.

If a person has not posted that they have received a gift the heart on the right will be empty.

This post very nicely explains what +Secret Santa is all about and why we continue to exist.

Many thanks to +Lerato Majikfaerie for allowing us to share her personal experience with Secret Santa.

Kidlet's First Christmas - three years ago
Three years ago, a few awesome people on Google+ decided to make a G+ Secret Santa, and thus the #Gplussanta  was born. 
It was the first year we were going to celebrate Christmas 'properly'; the first time kidlet was going to get gifts. I felt weird signing up to accept gifts, but I made a small, modest list of things my little #unschooling science nerd kidlet would enjoy, and posted it.

By the end of the day her list was all bought out and people were messaging me asking me to add more things to her wishlist!
Up till that point I'd kept the whole thing a surprise from Kidlet; I didn't want to get her hopes up and she'd never had any experience of Santa Claus before.

But I told kidlet about the G+ Secret Santa, and that I'd made her a wishlist and that people had already ordered things and sent her gifts... this was her response (edited down, because she literally ran around and around jumping up and down squealing with joy for a good twenty minutes).

The gifts kidlet received were so treasured by her - getting surprises in the post, and getting to celebrate christmas for the first time. Like I said, the G+ Secret Santa is the only santa in our family. And since we aren't able to go visit family for Christmas this year, kidlet has saved up a little so that we can participate even further and gift back a little more this year.

So get involved! head over to http://gplussanta.com/ and sign up :) create a wishlist of your own, share the joy! How could you watch this then 9-year old kidlet's pure delirium of happiness and excitement and not want to get involved!?

Huge thank you to all the elves who make +Secret Santa happen, and huge thanks to everyone who's participated over the past 3 years.

How to edit your ship to address on your Amazon wishlist.

VERY important as without an address your potential Secret Santa cannot send you anything!

How to edit your ship-to address on your +Secret Santa wishlist

One thing people forget about when making their wish lists is to add a ship-to address. Even if you are a regular Amazon.com customer, you still need to stop by those settings and tell them where you want your gifts delivered.

Here is an easy 3 step "How-to" guide.

Step 1: Go to Amazon.com and bring up your wish list. On the right hand side, you will see an option called List Actions Click it :-)

Step 2: From the drop down, choose Edit List Profile

Step 3: On the next screen, scroll down to Ship-to Address You can choose to either use an address from your address book or enter a new address. Don't forget to check the box for third-party item shipping if you have chosen to add things to your wish list from outside sources.

Bonus - if you want your gifts to be a surprise - make sure to check the "Don't spoil my surprises" box!___How to edit your ship to address on your Amazon wishlist.

5 Days Til Christmas!
(4 until I hop in the sleigh if that’s how you keep track)

As we approach the final days of Christmas, I’d like to remind everyone that we’re also running out of shipping days for those of you considering sending gifts.

6 Days and Counting and we've surpassed 1000 wishlists

It's a beautiful thing to extend a little kindness to another human being. While gifts are a wonderful thing, Santa would like to remind you that if you have nothing but your family at Christmas, you have the world. No gift can replace love. Pop some popcorn, pour some hot chocolate and play some games!

For those of you still looking to fulfill a few wishes, here are a few people to consider:

+Diana Swanson 
Wishlist: http://goo.gl/jGEAqb

"We participated in Secret Santa last year and were amazed by the amount of humanity we saw. Both giving and receiving was wonderful for our family, and this year, more than ever, we can use a bit of help this Christmas. We hope that everyone participating has a wonderful holiday season, and that the upcoming year brings everything this year was lacking! xoxo"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

+Elektra Kosh Edwards 
Wishlist: http://goo.gl/UquhXK

Elektra has done a wonderful job assisting Secret Santa this year. In fact, if you're one of the many people who've had missing shipping addresses, it was probably Elektra who discovered it and brought it to my attention. I'd love to see her get some love for all her hard work.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

+Mirriam Hamilton 
Wishlist: http://goo.gl/RwNYlu

Mirriam is a 14 year old girl with Smith-Magenis Syndrome. She is in her second group home in a year, and has been moved over 200 miles away from her family, so this Christmas is pretty stressful for her. She loves fairies, dolls, and like every teenage girl, One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer.___

Broken link on your Secret Santa profile?

Just a friendly reminder to please check those shipping addresses on your Amazon wishlists. Many of you have been notified, and Elf Sean G. will be sending out more notices today.

If you have a broken link on your profile, it means either your link is bad (doesn't link to a wishlist), or your list is missing a shipping address. The link is to identify this problem to potential gifters and make them aware of problems with the associated profile.

If you have a broken link and fix your shipping address, please notify one of the elves (tag by name). They will be able to verify your link and remove the icon from your profile.

Hurry while there's still time!

I graduate nursing school here in about a week. Unfortunately due to being a full time student, I have been only able to work part time, which barely covers the bills. It will be probably 2 months until I take my licensure exam and begin working as a nurse, so until then it is minimum wage. I have two amazing children who are my world. Trey is 5, and Brooklyn is 3. I know it isn't about the money or the gifts, but its hard to explain to them that there won’t be a whole lot of presents. I want to be able to give them a little extra under the Christmas tree this year.

With my chronic illnesses getting much worse, I'm not only unable to work, but I'm unable to do much at all right now; and it makes it even more difficult with both kids now being diagnosed with Asperger's. So I'm asking for the kindness of others to help me give my kids, and yes, myself, a little joy in our lives.

I'm not going to be getting home for Christmas this year, which means spending the day alone in my Brooklyn apartment, wishing I was with my family. Between that and money being even tighter than usual right now, I could do with a little holiday cheer.

This year has been especially difficult for my father had an heart attack and multiple organ failure and now requires much care in our home. We have two businesses to run, and because Sagan has PKU we must home-school. There aren't enough hours in the day to earn enough to cover it all, and yet we yearn, as all parents do, to see his happy face on Christmas morning. Thanks for all Santa's lovely help!

+Rachel Mills 
Rachel Mills
Wishlist: http://goo.gl/kndKjf

This year has been pretty rough on me. Recently divorced, which took a toll on my mental, physical and emotional health. My dog was hit by a car and is at the vet healing for a month, hoping to avoid a $3000 surgery. I just recently moved and trying to start over with my life. I love giving back, but this year will be tough just to give to my family. God has a way of making everything work out.

+Luca Zenari 
_ Luca Zenari (Lo Zeno)_
Wishlist: http://goo.gl/IsNlQW

It's the third year I take part to this, and I intend to continue.
However, this year has been particularly horrible for me, not in economical terms but emotionally and physically: towards March, I had a bad accident that left me with my left arm paralyzed, and at the same time I was abandoned by my future wife. It's been two years since I left my home country, so for the last 8 months I've been living in a country that is still foreign to me, without close friends, without anyone to rely on, and with my doctors trying to help me accept that I wouldn't be able to recover the use of my arm.
One good piece of news is, the doctors were wrong, I recently started recovering, and I'm slowly getting more movement out of my arm and fingers.
Still, it would make me feel great to receive some encouraging words from a stranger. I don't care about the gifts, I'll be giving gifts through this site as I have always done: my wish is to see that someone out there has written me a word or two to say "Don't worry, someone listens"

I work 3 jobs, plus blog online to give my girls Christmas. A lot of times I do without so they can have. I actually have only asked for jewelry making supplies because I make jewelry through out the year to sell. It helps me save money for Christmas so I can buy my girls what they want. I don't have a lot of money but I love sending random gifts anonymously to the list. I am looking forward to spreading Christmas cheer even if it means I may not get anything :) Thank you for doing this, Merry Christmas!

Many of us are hard up, in one way or another. Luckily, we have G+ to help all of us lessen that load a little bit. I participated last year, and plan to do the same as much as I can this year. May not get you that new Mercedes, but a Mercedes key chain will do, right?

It's Christmas, let's celebrate together, G+ Secret Santas!

I love Christmas. I didn't used to, but my husband showed me the way. ;-) I just like to add a little brightness to everyone's day. This is our first Christmas since we moved across the country, and we've had a lot of changes, with many more to come. My husband works for a non-profit, and I'm getting my business up and running. We're grateful for the blessings that we have. I'm more interested in giving than receiving. Merry Christmas, everyone!

For three years straight I've participated in Secret Santa... sending tons and tons of random gifts, and receiving them alike.  This year's been tough financially on me, having been unemployed for 4 months up until recently.  However, this past year has been more tough on my sister who's been battling cancer and medical bills from two surgeries over the past 14 months.  I'm linking to her wishlist this year, as she's in need of a little GPlus Santa love and Christmas cheer.

Having been diagnosed with cancer yesterday, I have a new appreciation for life and how precious it is...
I love helping others but this year I need help. The items on my list will help me while I undergo treatment and for phototherapy, for on my good days, I am hoping I can go out with my camera and take photos, which calms and relaxes me and will help to take my mind off of everything that will help free me of cancer

Having spent this year recovering from a shattered patella, there has been very little work and even less cash. The family and I are very fortunate to have such good friends around to help us out but things stretch only so far. This is my 3rd (maybe 4th if its been going that long) year of Secret Santa and have had a blast every time with it.

I will be able to get her some things on the 17th when my paycheque comes in, but even then my Christmas shopping will take place in the Dollar Store to ensure we don't hurt the budget we just got worked out.

You will see that nothing on my wishlist is for me, it is all for my 4 year old daughter. So if you do happen to see something that doesn't look like it would be for a 4 year old girl, it is there by mistake and should be ignored.

Thank you to anyone that helps to make this Christmas a special one for my little girl and I will be sure to let her know exactly where the gift came from. A caring person on Google+.

Since I lost my right leg to septic shock in 2013 my wife has made many sacrifices to take care of the family, the least of which is taking care of her wants and desires. Two things in particular that she used on a regular basis - our slow cooker and blender - have worn out and we can't afford to replace them. I'd love to see the look on her face when she sees that something she had to give up has been taken care of for her.

I'm giving Secret Santa my wishlist due to peer pressure. I'm on disability because of a rare chronic headache disorder, so I've got way more time than money and tend to make rather than buy gifts. Much of what's on my list I can use to make handmade gifts for others or to donate to charity, but there's also some just for fun stuff.

These last few years have been rough. My Christmas fund is slim. I added some toys for them, clothes they desperately need, and one outfit for me as my clothes are all worn out. I also added a few cookbooks/guides that i really want to help for the coming year, as well as some laundry detergent. If i have enough i know i would like to send something to someone. Thank you.

PSA - It's time once again to check your lists to make sure you've set an address for your wishlist. Without an address Santa's Elves can't send you any presents.

Also, please be aware that third party items (by non-Amazon vendors) added to your wishlist don't work with your wishlist addresses. To ship those items people would have to know your actual address.

We're going to start marking wishlists that either don't work or don't have shipping addresses with a yellow icon in the top right corner so you can A) let us know when you fix it, if it's yours and B) Skip that list until it's fixed.

If you find a list missing an address and it's not marked please let the Elves know.

How to edit your ship-to address on your +Secret Santa wishlist

One thing people forget about when making their wish lists is to add a ship-to address. Even if you are a regular Amazon.com customer, you still need to stop by those settings and tell them where you want your gifts delivered.

Here is an easy 3 step "How-to" guide.

Step 1: Go to Amazon.com and bring up your wish list. On the right hand side, you will see an option called List Actions Click it :-)

Step 2: From the drop down, choose Edit List Profile

Step 3: On the next screen, scroll down to Ship-to Address You can choose to either use an address from your address book or enter a new address. Don't forget to check the box for third-party item shipping if you have chosen to add things to your wish list from outside sources.

Bonus - if you want your gifts to be a surprise - make sure to check the "Don't spoil my surprises" box!___PSA - It's time once again to check your lists to make sure you've set an address for your wishlist. Without an address Santa's Elves can't send you any presents.
