Join ALIA SNGG for a bit of fun before the festive season.

How does it work? 

Step 1 – Fill in this form by 7th December to participate 

Step 2 – You will receive the name, social media handles, postal address & other details of another 12 Days of GLAMR Secret Santa participant. Your details will likewise be sent to another participant. 

Step 3 – Post on your preferred social media channel (or as many as you like!) what kind of books you would like to receive from your Secret Santa. Be as specific or as general as you like! But make sure to tag #12DaysOfGLAMR and @ALIANewGrads in your posts so your Secret Santa can find you easily. 

Step 4 – Find your Secret Santa on social media and see if they have posted any clues to what they might like to read this summer!

Step 5 – Find a book (spending no more than $20) for your 12 Days of GLAMR Secret Santa.

Step 6 –  Post your gift in the mail to your Secret Santa no later than the 13th December to ensure your gift arrives in time for Christmas. Feel free to include your details if you wish to connect with your Secret Santa after 12 Days of GLAMR. Or keep it anonymous. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness either way!

Step 7 – Receive your amazing gift from your Secret Santa and keep safe until Christmas Eve.

Step 8 – On Christmas Eve open up your 12 Days of GLAMR Secret Santa gift. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
