Hey there Ho Ho Ho’s. Back again for some more details and info on gifts. This time we are going to explore the Gift of Giving. In this case giving them to your Neighbors on Facebook.
In order to get additional “Gifts” in our game from Friends/Neighbors, you need to be linked to Facebook for your account. This will allow you to have the possibility to get all the Secret Santa Gifts (depending on how active your neighbor is).
WHEN DO THE SECRET SANTA GIFTS START?
At the completion of Miracle on Spooner Street Part 5, you will notice you will receive 1 free Secret Santa Gift. Part 6 will then launch you into the details of how to Make and Give Secret Santa Gifts. Here you will learn that Bonnie is the main character that makes them.
To Make a gift, all you do is send Bonnie on her task and tap on the checkmark when complete. The newly made gift will then be added to your total.
HOW DO I KNOW I HAVE A SECRET SANTA GIFT TO GIVE?
In the lower left corner of your game will be the Secret Santa Gift/Neighbor Icon. This will tell you the amount you have to give to out.
WHEN DO I START GETTING SECRET SANTA GIFTS?
You will get a gift, most likely from Ollie, in the beginning of the event around the same time as Miracle on Spooner Street Part 5 & 6. Now, you MAY get another Ollie gift but they are only around 1 every Tree Upgrade. So your best amounts will come from active neighbors.
Outside of that, it will depend on your neighbors.
HOW MANY SECRET SANTA GIFTS CAN I GET?
Much like the Neighbors, you can only receive ONE gift
every 24hrs TinyCo updated this to one every 12hrs now, so you could potentially see TWO each day. So if 10 friends sent you gifts, it will take you 10 days to open them. (Another good reason to spread out the gifts and not try to drop them all in one place).
HOW DO I KNOW I GOT A SECRET SANTA GIFT?
The Secret Santa Gift will show up in the Christmas Event Area right behind Santa’s broken sleigh. You will see a lil bow above it. You will also see a message pop up when you enter your town letting you know that you got a gift and who sent it. The pop up doesn’t stay around for too long, so if it has been
24hrs 12hrs since you last Secret Santa Gift check the Christmas Event Area.
WHAT IS INSIDE THE SECRET SANTA GIFTS?
Here is the list of items you can get, so far, from the Secret Santa Gifts. (Yours might vary slightly)
|Secret Santa Gifts|
|In-da-club Snow Fort|
|100 Christmas Cookies|
|2 Candy Cane Stockings|
|2 Doll Stockings|
HOW MANY SECRET SANTA GIFTS CAN I GIVE?
You can give ONE gift to each neighbor within
24 hours 12hrs. If it has been less than 24hrs 12hrs, the game will pop up a message from Peter telling you how much longer you have to wait before giving them another one.
HOW DO I KNOW MY NEIGHBOR NEEDS A SECRET SANTA GIFT?
Another good thing to watch out for is in the top right corner above your Neighbor’s Picture icon. If there is a a teeny tiny lil blue gift package, this means it is time to drop a gift for that Neighbor.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE ANY NEIGHBORS?
That is OK, like I stated above you do still have Ollieland. You will get a Secret Santa Gift from him about once every Tree Upgrade. So approx 4. You are more than welcome to also drop them there. Why? Well, there is the payout YOU get from dropping gifts.
WHAT DO I GET FROM DROPPING SECRET SANTA GIFTS OFF?
If you take the time to craft Secret Santa Gifts and send them to your Neighbors or even to Ollie, you will be rewarded for doing so. Now each time you drop a gift, the payout will vary…but here is an idea of what YOU get for just giving someone a gift. It’s pretty cool and helpful. So just drop a gift off to a Neighbor and see what pops out.
You will get one or MORE of the following (each payout varies)…
|Secret Santa Neighbor Gift Bonus Materials|
|20 Christmas Cookies|
|30 Christmas Cookies|
|25 Holiday Cheer|
|Clams (2 or more)|
HOW DO I SEE WHAT I HAVE LEFT TO GET?
Similar to the Gift Box Prizes you wrap in Santa’s Village, you can also see what gifts you may get from Secret Santa too. Just tap on the Green “PRIZES” option instead of “Open Me” to see what all is inside.
The game will automatically take you to the first available Friend. Look on their pic to see if they have a lil blue gift box, if not…scroll through neighbors until you find one that does. (You can also go look in their Event Area to see if there is a gift there already.)
Tap the “Home” Icon to return back to YOUR Quahog when you are done.
There you have it. The basics of Secret Santa Gift Giving and Receiving. Hopefully all of this will help to answer any questions left.
What do you think so far of the gifts? Have you received any Secret Santa Gifts yet? Like the items inside? Got any Bonus Clams yet for giving gifts? Let us know below.
