I'm definately in and maybe it should be something from your house that normally would be common in your area that might not be common to the person you're sending it to. Living in New Mexico that would be very easy for me to do.

Shipping to Canada isn't that expensive if the item is light enough.

Last year I was in one of these, I gave an iron pan. Not this year. In states shipping was a bear.

Count me in.

The one I was in last year the names of the participants were put into a hat and pulled two at a time. I believe.

No matter. Just let me know who I'm "buying" for so I can start web-stalking, I mean researching them.
