Please put in your post things that you like and also things that you dislike or are allergic to.

Also if you are happy to have a buddy from another country please put it in your post.

Each member should spend no more than $20 without shipping costs.

Also to ensure your gift reachs its destination in time please mail your gift by 7th December at latest.

I hope that this year can be as successful as previous years :)

Oh! I wanna do it!! There are a few things I bought over summer specifically for the gift exchange!

Ok, likes:

Goldfish things, obviously

Dog things

Dragon anything

Chocolate!!

I like getting new recipies for just about anything except seafood, unless it's tuna or salmon.

Anything ceramic

BOOKS!!! General dog books (training, behavior anything), cookbooks, folklore, native history of any culture/country, religious history

Ink pens. I like neat pens. (The nurses always give me the drug pens at the dr.'s office)

Dislikes:

Pink and red things

Cherries (I can't eat them)

Although I would love to have a partner overseas, I don't think I can afford the postage so I'll have to pass :(

I'm in! And I'd be happy to buddy with someone from another country.

Likes: Clearly anything fish-related, and also cats or dog stuff. I like to knit and embroider. I like music, of course, mostly folk/indie rock. And I like fun, unique chotchkies and picture frames. I like books and comic books. Chocolate is also a fave. I like to garden, well, more accrurately put stuff in cool-looking pots and watch them grow and/or die.

Dislikes: I'm not really into scented things (like candles or sprays), I'm sensitive to most of those things.

Yay! I love Christmas!

Likes: Art (I'm an art history grad student), Star Wars, Knitting, Ballet, I collect owls, my favorite colors today are orange and green, I also have an unnatural affinity for peanut M&Ms

Dislikes: Yellow.

Allergies: wheat/gluten, and no bath products my skin has become very sensitive as of late, stupid laundry detergent is breaking me out now too!

Oh yay! I can't beleive I've never done this before!!!

And who knows, I might just break out my old art supplies for this one ;)

I like anything animal or nature related really (obviously, goldies are a fav), love love LOVE candy, books, Christmas ornaments, journals (as in the kind you write in), and martial arts...so action movies are always fun :P

Don't really want food (aside from candy!) and I'm not really into trinkets, as in ceramics or anything else small and breakable that would probably need to go on a shelf...which I don't have

And I can ship to the US but overseas is a bit too pricey for me this year :(

I'm in! I love gift exchanges...so much fun! I need to stay in the US to save on shipping costs.

Likes: Anything to do with goldfish (especially informational books or supplies or just cute things), things to do with Maltese dogs, gardening, knitting, anything to do with cooking (though I'm vegan so that is a bit harder), anything to do with Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy, Angel), I love popcorn stuff (I make my own in my air popper), coffee...okay is that enough weird random things?

Dislikes: Hmm...I'm easy to please, though I am not a huge knick-knack fan unless it has to do with goldfish...then I love them! I'm not a super frilly, girly girl.

I like any snack that is a local favorite. The quirkier it is, the more I like it. That's why I request an overseas Secret Santa. :)

Other than that, a charitable gift in my name. You can get something of the appropriate value here http://www.heifer.org/site/c.edJRKQNiFiG/b.204586/ in my name. This is an easy one because there is no shipping cost or effort.

Heifer International is my charity of the year. :)
