13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like
I think half the fun of getting gifts is seeing how the giver makes his/her choices...I do not generally like it when families etc. announce exactly what they want so they know exactly what they'll get...that said, with people who have never met each other, knowing at least a few surefire gifts is helpful...

glad to be participating this year after a year off!
