Welcome to MILK, an online forum and community based around the virtual life PC game, Babyz, created by Mindscape/Ubisoft in 1999. Milk is the center of our little Babyz Community, and we've been going strong for 12 years and counting!
HAPPY WINTER MILK <3 the start of the most wonderful time of the year means it's time for milk secret santa 2018!
how does it work?
we will be accepting signups for secret santa until wednesday, december 5th. the quick sign-up is to ensure people plenty of time to work on their gifts! on december 5th, we will match up milkers based on skills/desires and send out PMs to let you know who you will be giving a gift to along with instructions on how to pass your gift along.
what if i don't know how to hex?
there are lots of things you can give other than hexed items, especially during the holiday season! some suggestions include coupons for graphics or photoshoots, mootique gift cards, sets bought from mootiques, artwork, or anything you can come up with! additionally, look out for an extra special gifting shop coming next week, where an extremely limited number of custom hexed goods will be available (for purchase as gifts exclusively). remember, it's the thought that counts - you might not think you're a brilliant hexer, but your recipient will be delighted by anything you make if you do hex something!
can i still play even if i don't celebrate christmas?
of course! milk secret santa is for everyone <3

Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: when i was little i would wake up in the morning before everyone else so in an attempt to get me to let my parents sleep, my mom started hanging my stocking on my door so i could open it as soon as i woke up. then i would run downstairs and my parents would get up and we would make coffee/cocoa and pillsbury orange rolls and after breakfast we would open presents! it was always super magical and lovely and warm and just perfect. now that i’m older and live apart from my family (plus my parents and i are in a different state from the rest of my family), it's a little bit different, but i still always go over to my parents' house and celebrate with them at whatever time on christmas eve or day that we are all able to make work!
Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get?: no graphics please cause i love making my own! otherwise i’m open to anything! i am a lil bit picky about babyz hexed for me but since i got one of my favorite babyz ever as a secret santa gift (hem from jamie <3) i’m not opposed to it at all! i just ask that if you wish to hex a baby for me that i be allowed to make small tweaks if i would like.
also fyi for clothes i prefer tights to buggz (i hate buggz sorry) and i forever love riley's circle glasses and aleisha’s big lace bow!

Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get?: graphics & photoshoots probably bc i like to do them, but anything i recieve will be greatly appreciated if you prefer to send those. thank you santa!
Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): I like a bit of everything really! I prefer patterns that aren't *too* busy and colours that go together, I like bright things, pastel things, I don't *tend* to like browns but sometimes I do, I just like things that look nice together. My favourite colour is turquoise/aqua but good luck doing anything with that in babyz.
Some things you love: pokemon, disney, sweets and chocolate (not american chocolate though sorry, I bought some at an import shop and I did NOT like it) cute things, glitter, rainbows, cats.. honestly there is a lot of love in my soul.
Some things you like on babyz: I like.. almost anything that looks pretty or nice? I prefer natural colours and lighter skintones, I like colouring and styling that blends well together.
Some things you dislike on babyz: I don't usually like brites, I don't usually like bald kids.
Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: It's my parents turn to host christmas this year, which is ace, I like their year more than my in-laws year (I can say that here because my in-laws don't play babyz, lmao). We'll wake up early and put on fluffy dressing gowns, and watch each other open presents (Mostly everyone will be watching Alexander because he is 8 and wonderful), then we will have a bit of breakfast, but not too much because we will have a huge christmas lunch later. My favourite bit is the pigs in blankets! We spend the day chilling out and watching TV, then on boxing day we see my auntie and some of my cousins and their kids, Alexander gets to play and we socialise with the other adults (Except I mostly socialise with the little ones). The day after that we will go across to Phil's parents and have christmas again. So many christmas dinners.
Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) I do prefer making my own graphics, it's one of my favourite things!

Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) anthing that someone is thoughtful enough to give me is always appreciated.

Your email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s):
Colors: green, purple, turquoise are my top three favorites. Although I am pretty flexible as long as the colors go well together.
Patterns: I really like paisley, polka dot, plaid, florals, and chevron.
Styles: I am pretty practical and down to earth in real life. As far as babyz clothing I'm really into all of the fluffy things right now. Of course anything to match my kids would be great, too. Some of my favorite pieces are Riley's low rise skirt, Aleisha's big bow, Lacey fluffy winter hat, and the minidress.
Some things you love: books, music (especially alt rock), Sims, Pokemon, animals (favs are orcas, penguins, and big cats like lions), watching dramas, coffee (especially maple stuff this year).
Some things you like on babyz: I am fairly easy to please. In general I like kids that are slightly themed but not overly so. I do have some heavily themed kids in my family that I adore, so I am not opposed to that as long as it works well. I prefer ombred or multicolored hair, firefly eyes, freckles, rosies, and tattoos. I am really into darker skin tones right now, especially with pinker rosies. I also really love babyz based on book characters!
Some things you dislike on babyz: brites, weird noses (aka anime nose), and textured eyes.
Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays:
My parents were all about traditions for the holidays while growing up. My mom especially loved to go all out. This year, I am doing a book advent calendar for my son so we get a new book each night to enjoy at bedtime. Of course we enjoy watching all of the holiday specials. We always keep A Christmas Story on the TV all Christmas Eve/Christmas Day since there's a 24 hour marathon here.
On Christmas Eve I always watch White Christmas. It was a tradition with my mom that I really enjoyed.
Other than that we are do the typical family gathering on Christmas Day. We always have a big breakfast after opening presents in the morning, too.
Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? I am open to anything. <3 Thank you!
