Aussie YA Secret Santas 2016 – Join in the fun!

November 17, 2016 by Jeann @ Happy Indulgence | Features


It’s our favourite time of the year, and what better time to celebrate than spreading the joy through Secret Santa?

I’m hosting not one but TWO Aussie YA secret santa exchanges this year and would love for you to join us!

1. Aussie YA Bloggers & Readers Secret Santa 2016

The Aussie YA Bloggers Secret Santa is back for the third year, and is open to Australian and New Zealand residents only. Join our Facebook and Goodreads groups!

Sign ups until 20 November and names are drawn on the 21 November.

Gifts exchanged: 22 November — 25 December (We are aware that shipping during December may be slower so your gift may arrive after Christmas. We ask everyone to have their wishlists up as soon as you sign up so your Secret Santa can order your gift ASAP). A tracking number must be provided.

Gift limit: $15 from your wishlist – add 3 books under $15 on a Goodreads shelf and link to it.

Leaving clues for your santee: Once again participants are encouraged to visit the blogs/GRs of their secret gift receivers (and other participants). We’re a great community and we want everyone to get to know each other and make new friends! After the names are drawn, you leave clues for your Secret Gift Receiver on Twitter, so they can try and guess who their Secret Santa is.

– Post your clue up on your Twitter between 22 November — 25 December using #AusYASecretSanta
– Use #AusYASecretSanta if you’re talking about it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram
