It's time for +Secret Santa! Best thing about G+
Have you signed up yet?

Secret Santa is up and running for another year!
My coder elf has done some serious magic and the new website looks fantastic!

If you have problems my elves are:
+Kyla Myers
+Lori Friedrich
+LaDonna Pride
they will do their best to help, and if needed they will escalate the problem to my coder elf.

When you sign in, there is a wonderful new button called "tutorials" go there for step by step instructions. My elves are currently working on putting together an FAQ as be on the look out for that!

Something new this year....when you sign up you will not see your name on the list. We promise it is there for everyone else. Instead you will see a fancy new "registered" button once your registration is complete. Don't forget my elves have to verify your registration, we look to make sure your wishlist link works and there is a shipping address as well. (keep an eye out for an e-mail from an elf, if we find a problem that is how we will contact you)

Remember that you can have more than one Amazon wish list so feel free to make one just for Secret Santa and you can have individual lists for your children and pets, too. Make sure they are public if you want the Elves to be able to see them. While you're at it, be sure your list has an address. You may not realize it but just because you have an address on Amazon, doesn't mean it's attached to your wishlist. Wishlist's can have different addresses. So, if your college age child is not living with you his or her address can be attached to that list.

Our new site has a great search feature. You can look up specific names, specific words like, kids, vets etc. You can also sort by country and add a specified random number of people to your recipient list.

Also new this year.... you can edit the reason Secret Santa is important to you. Go to the "My account" button and when you change the reason, a little update button will appear.

One last thing....When you receive a gift, go to the "My Account" button and there is a counter at the very bottom on the left. Just use that to indicate you have received your gift.

....and don't forget to share a photo of your gift and tag it with #santagift

Santa gifts are beginning to roll in! Please remember to share a photo of your gift, add #SantaGift and tag Santa and his elves. That gives us all a chance to bask in the warmth of this, my favorite season!!!

Here's how it works:
- Go to here:
- Sign in with Google on the sign up page.
- Add your wishlist with an explanation of why Secret Santa is important to you. (remember my elves have to verify your list before it will show up on the main page)
- Search, browse, and gift your friends or a stranger!

Create your Amazon wishlist here:
