If I remember correctly:

Everyone interested signs up with the hosts and a price range is decided on. The host assigns everyone another lady to buy for. A date is set to give everyone time to get gifts shipped etc. and then everyone opens their package on the same day.

I did it with the Nov 08 DDC and it was fun.

in the August DDC they have a place where people can post things about it and it is basically like a secret santa. They send a post and ask "I see your having a boy - Do you like sports themed things for him?" Or something like that, and a bunch of ladies post answers to it... so no one knows who is the gifter...

Our did it the way Brie's did but we didn't open them together. You opened them as you received them and the sender included their name with the gift. I will say we had a few people send and never receive gifts in return and a few people just drop off of JM after they signed up which isn't fair. I don't think we should do a "virtual shower" until everyone who wants to find out what they are having knows just to be fair.

I've never participated in any because I have seen so many people get hurt feelings or end up never receiving anything in return, so it's just not worth the drama for me, personally. But I have seen lots of ladies have tons of fun with them, too.

That sounds like fun! I'd like to participate.

I'm with Allie, though. I think we should wait until everyone who wants to know the gender has found out. Since we're all due around the same time, it shouldn't be a big deal.

I would love to participate. I ended up not getting a gift a few years ago on another forum from the original person but someone ended up gifting me anyways (Secret Santa). I think as long as a picture is sent to the host with the box labeled and sealed with the persons address and proof of shipping. I think all should be okay. I have Amazon Prime so I can ship with the click of a button lol
