Elfster has drawn you a name and now you are drawing a blank! What to do:

Fill out your own profile - The person who drew you might be just as stumped on what to do with you. Throw a few suggestions up on your wishlist, link it to your Amazon wishlist, etc.

Ask questions - Elfster makes it super easy to ask questions of the person you drew, or anyone else you want to get to know better, without them finding out who you are. Just click on their name in Elfster and click the link to ask them a question. You can use one of the suggested questions, read over the questions they have answered in the past, or ask them a question all your own.

Answer questions asked promptly - When someone asks you a question, Elfster will e-mail you and let you know. Answer as quickly and thoughtfully as you can, and don't be afraid to be descriptive.

Add them to your journal - Don't be afraid to friend people who are part of this group! I know them all and can vouch for their awesomeness, and I've made some of the most amazing friends through this Secret Santa exchange...not just with the people who drew me or I drew, but other people who just seemed fun. I encourage everyone to friend anyone they don't yet know...it is an LJ Secret Santa, after all, and our journals are a great way to get to know each other better to pick that perfect present. To be honest, I have found that the best gifts I have received through this exchange every year are new friends I might never have met otherwise and deeper understanding of old friends. Add people, at least through the month of December, if you are open to doing so. If you decide you aren't each other's cup of tea at the end of the month, no harm, no foul, but at least you met someone new.

I'm in! Have added everyone I didn't already have on my flist, but didn't leave a comment for each. So if you see me as a new friend, this is why. :P Here's to hoping we'll all enjoy some new friends!
