Hello, and happy weekend, everyone! Many of us have gifting on our minds at the moment, so maybe it's a good time to ask: What's the best gift you ever got? What's the best gift you ever gave? How about the worst? 👹 [more inside]
After excellent success using ask.me to get a gift idea, I don't want to spam metafilter with questions about all my friends and relations- but how best to search the archives? [more inside]
I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with my life so I did not enter the secret quonsar swap this year. Nevertheless, a mysterious package addressed to my username appeared on my doorstep yesterday, much to the delight of my family. [more inside]
Yay for secretquonsar! Got my gift today! Hoping mine wings its way on time.

Who wants post-Quonsmas presents? Or: Metafilter Craft Exchange? [more inside]
It's Secret quonsar Roundup Time! We're trying to make sure everyone gets their gift this year. Please check your email and respond if you have an email from us. If you have any questions talk to us Meanwhile, we thought we'd share some fun statistics and next steps. [more inside]

Is there a way to gift a membership anonymously, or at least without the gift linking to my username? [more inside]
Why is a gift list for men too chatty? [more inside]
It's that time of year again! For the past several years, we've enjoyed swapping gifts in a secret Quonsar swap. I'll be organizing it this year (with the help of Indigo Rain, last year's organizer) My goal is to open signups on November 15, and do the ceremonial giftee random draw on (American) Thanksgiving Day, which is November 25th. Before we open the floodgates to this year's Secret Quonsar, there is one outstanding issue we need to resolve. [more inside]
This is a callout. I accuse each and every one of you of being awesome. [more inside]
I want to print good askmefi threads as a book for my student. What's the best/fastest way to do it? [more inside]
There was a list in the last few weeks of a bunch of weird places to get christmas gifts. One was the american science supply and the author commented that a similar list was put up last year. Searching metafilter and ask metafilter has proven fruitless. Can someone get me back to the post? thanks.
Hey Matt, in the gifting spirit, how about a link to the give-a-mefi-membership gift option somewhere on the Blue? Did the "beta" period work out? If so, don't be shy. It's a great feature. I just used it. But I had to hunt and peck through the MeTa archives to find it :)
Currently in beta: give a mefi account as a gift. I think all the bugs have been worked out. You put in your friend's email, pay the five bucks, and they'll get an email letting them pick a username, password, and other details. If you try it out, let me know if you or your friend gets any errors.
Is it at all possible to buy gift MeFi memberships to others? Answers in comments, please.
Can I give the gift that keeps on giving? Meaning, a mefi account? As it stands I could pay the five bucks and sign somebody up, but the giftee wouldn't have any control over her username or password and can't change them after the fact.
