Your Character's Name: Ankh D'Aabt
Giftee's Name: Coaxoch
Gift Title: Two Kittens
Gift Description: The kittens are half-brothers, born to different mothers. The tuxedo-ed one is a month or so older than his tabby sidekick. But that doesn't stop the younger one from proving himself as the more spirited of the pair, while the older one takes strongly after his father, Allspice, familiar of the hermit Ankh D'Aabt. While both kittens are largely feral, they seem friendly enough and may soon warm to the idea of living in a more civilized manner. Growing boys, they're both easily bribed with tasty morsels such as mice, frogs and other small forest creatures.
IC Delivery Plan: Ankh will most likely invite Coax to the hollow under the premise of conversation, only to present him with the two kittens!

Your Character's Name: Shaamah
Giftee's Name: Elphaba

Gift Title: Lynx Stole and Pledge of Fealty
Gift Description:

A Canadian Lynx that was cull by Shaamah's hands and tanned/tailored by an expert. The lynx, in it's winder coat, is warm and plush. The stole is lined with a red wool interior. A cord protrudes from the Lynx mouth and latches onto the Lynx fang to hold it closed. There is no skull in the Lynx' decorative head feature, so the leather is supple and easy to move in. Very warm and lightly coated in a natural waterproofing agent made from diluted animal fat. Stored in a cedar box until delivery and continues to have the woody scent intact. This stole is a physical embodiment of the Pledge of Fealty that Shaamah will take upon her receiving the gift.

IC Delivery Plan: A one on one, very private moment. Likely in one of their dwellings.

Your Character's Name: Idrieus Eternity
Giftee's Name: Ankh D'Aabt

Gift Title: Fragrance Bundle
Gift Description:

Sinking a small amount of her inheritance, Idrieus sought out a trader in more exotic wares. A small bowl, no bigger than what one would use for meals, water, and other such daily uses that is made out of a clay material. Given a finishing shine, this pot is filled to allow for incense to be placed inside and the ash to be collected in its base. Included with this is a bundle of different essences. Some of the sticks hold some color to them, causing them to burn with a variety of different smells. The bundle itself is wrapped delicately in a cloth wrap and tied together with a small strip of cloth.

IC Delivery Plan: Invitation to come over for a meal during the gift giving season and the gift will be given at the end.

Your Character's Name: Dahlia de le Poer
Giftee's Name: Till Van Ulrich-Lykoi

Gift Title: A Brand New CAR Horse
Gift Description:

Aided by members of the Cartel, assistance was given in order to steal some horses from an unsuspecting group of loners. One of two that was acquired by Dahlia was decided to be given to Coaxoch father, Till. As was typical with the breed the pale faced man has, the mare offered to him is of the mustang breed, dark gray pelt with a lighter gray spotted pattern along the back and rear. Small white dot upon its forehead. The animal has a calm temperament and seems to get along well with other horses. Social, though wary of either loud sounds or aggressive horses. The horse is already rider broken and is open to other forms of training. A mare was decided to be given to even out the genders and provide breeding options.

IC Delivery Plan: The horse will be brought to Till as a gift for becoming a small part of and to gain favoring with the Ulrich family for Eden, Evelyn, and Coaxoch, with him being their father/grandfather.

Your Character's Name: Silas del Morte
Giftee's Name: Andrew Winthrop

Gift Title: Fur/Wool Blanket
Gift Description:

Though scarcer in nature, Silas' hunting efforts have proven useful in gathering a collection of pelts. Keeping some that look almost the same or similar to one another, he made sure the hides were cleaned and tanned before working to trim and connect the furs together. The pelts are arranged in a way that the patterns line up to create a singular pattern across the blanket. Unskilled in the use of wool or attaching it to the underside, Silas has offered his services in order to finish the work on the blanket. The wool has been dyed to match the color of the pelts on the top side.

IC Delivery Plan: When Silas comes over to help take care of daily chores around Helena's home, the gift will be given to Andrew upon the Quartermaster's permission to do so.

Your Character's Name: Till Van Ulrich-Lykoi
Giftee's Name: Grievous Eternity

Gift Title: Witch Kit, mortar and pestle
Gift Description:

Traded for while in his most recent trip to Portland, Till brought back an interestingly shaped mortar and pestle. It is devoid of color, much like the Eternity son whom he thought of when he was buying it. It is seemingly made of some sort of stone, the merchant spoke of it being of marble but Till wouldn't know any better. The Witch kit was both acquired on this trip and put together by himself of older tools that he did not use anymore. It includes an athame, candlestick+holder, brew spoon, wand, incense smudger, honey collector, cinnamon+assorted herbs, parchment+ink+quill, and sand-timer. It also includes various small jars of herbs and precious stones.

IC Delivery Plan: Till would bring it to the Henchman as a symbol of good will between their families. It would likely be at the Saturnalia, should he be present, or possibly at Elphaba's Solstice celebration.
Would you like a bonus IC thread?: Sure I wouldn't mind one. Depends on if you want one.

Your Character's Name: Coacoxh
Giftee's Name: Silas

Gift Title: Boar Meat Stew
Gift Description:

A thick brothed boar meat stew that was prepared and hunted by Coaxoch. It's not the best stew ever, and could be a bit more seasoned but for a single father who is working on his cooking it is flavorful and tender!

IC Delivery Plan: Coaxoch would invite Silas(and Julia) over and have them play with the puppies while he cooked the meal. Coaxoch would probably be curious as to Silas' and Julia's time in Salsola. He will also even offer some stew for him to take home.

Your Character's Name: Sebastien Stone
Giftee's Name: Dahlia de le Poer

Gift Title: Puppy sweaters and booties!
Gift Description:

With the weather turning bitter, the children are kept indoors for their own protection. Sebastien gathered scraps of fur and after several attempts, created two sweaters and pairs of booties for Eden and Evelyn. One of the pelts is a lighter shade while the other is darker. The sweaters slip on over the pup's head, and there is a hole for the fore-limbs. The booties have holes poked into the top, with a strip of leather that can be loosened or tightened around the foot. Whilst not an expert with needle and thread, Sebastien gave his time to Corrine Pauva to fix his mistakes and finish the gift to a higher quality that he could not have achieved alone.

IC Delivery Plan: Sebastien will make a meal for Dahlia during the gift giving season and present the gift to her afterwards.

Your Character's Name: Kaeli Blacksun
Giftee's Name: O’Riley Eternity

Gift Title: A pair of black hard-leather bracers

Gift Description: Handcrafted by Kaeli these armguards were designed with utility in mind and lack any distinguishable embellishments or details however they are of the utmost quality and are expected to have extremely good durability. Each bracer was fabricated with two individual components, the main guard which covers the forearm completely, and the rabbit fur lining that prevents the wearer from suffering friction burns after prolonged use, those two were stitched together using thick black-dyed wool thread. The bracers are adjustable and have a thick black cord on the underside which criss-crosses down the entire length of the piece like in a corset.

IC Delivery Plan: Kaeli would probably deliver them at O’Riley’s house or track him down during his daily activities.
