I'm currently on vacation for the week but my roommate just told me I got a FedEx package delivered today. Can't wait to head back and see what I got...hopefully it's my first Secret Santa gift!

Second package has arrived! It came from the beautiful Switzerland. I got:
- A really nice alpine bottle
- Very tasty swiss mountain tea
- An amazing swiss bag

Will post pictures of both presents as soon as I can.

Thanks a lot Swiss Circle!

HO HO HO! It is time to sign up for 2014 FT Secret Santa!

Thank you to another Secret Santa of mine from the USA.

Champagne top candles which I have never seen before and will most certainly be a hit at upcoming Christmas parties! And a cat which I think is supposed to be a stress reliever to play with! Very unique gifts. Many thanks!

Also wanted to add that I am one unhappy Santa today too
Posting gifts this year was at an all time record of over $230 in postage for 6 parcels. One alone was $67 which weighed under 1kg and was small!!!! (Cheapest postage)
I urge any Aussies or New Zealand FT's join up for future years to ease the burden for all of us having to always ship overseas so many gifts. Yes it's my choice of course to have 6 Santas but it's on my wish list! Ho Ho Ho

Very nice books. Will start cooking some of the recipes soon.

Just received my first secret santa package from a neighbor also in NJ! After contacting a mutual friend with the clues provided from my SS, I think I was able to put a name to my SS. Beth??

Anyway inside was a great makeup kit from sephora (and a sephora ornament), some yummy godiva truffles, a trendy neck pillow, a $10 starbucks card, and a cute photo frame Loved opening all the gifts (couldn't resist) I will post pics soon! Thanks!

Smile Yippee!

What a wonderful Secret Santa!

I had listed some of my favorite things and SJLandsverk checked them off and put them in a Fed Ex pkg. 3M Tear By Hand Tape (hard to find and not cheap) and TokyoMilk 02 Lotion (same traits) AND, not to be boring, he introduced me to a yummy confection I had not tried before, Magic Morsels, dif flavored little boutiquey brownies, taking a clue to what I might like from my love of See's. He sent me a whole box!

And he did something I always love when SSs do it ... he enclosed a Christmas card He signed his ft handle and I have no problem taking the time to post and thank him for such a perfect gift

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Many thanks to Bravado04 for his gift to me of an assortment of electronics including a mini speaker, earbuds, and a mobile charger. Cheers!

Made it to my parents' for Thanksgiving, and opened the box that has been waiting for me here.

I figured out who this Santa was, and have sent Santa a PM thanking them, but figured it's only proper to share my gifts here too.

The card I received says, "contained in this box are a few of my favorite items." The box included a wild game cookbook that "actually contains real recipes that are not from the late 1800's," a pair of pull-apart shears that are designed to cut through bones and stems, treats for the kibblers, great socks (I LOVE socks, and am on a moratorium from buying socks), dog slobber hand sanitizer, and a pink, Realtree APC camo hostess apron!

The card also mentioned Mauser, and indicated that my Santa not only made a contribution to a friend's Monster Holiday Drive, but shared it as well (which I love!).

The wild game cookbook will definitely come in handy, as on Monday, I have to pick up Mr. Kipper's deer from archery season! The dogs would not leave me alone while I was opening their treats, and I soon understood why! The socks are great--Mr. Kipper laughed and said that the "sock whore" on the foot of them describes me perfectly! I love the apron, and will be wearing that while I prepare Thanksgiving dinner. The shears will definitely be put to good use too!

Thank you so much, Santa!!!!!

Head Santa just checked in for his long trip back home.

Friendly reminder to make sure you send me private messages with details on what you ship and receive.

Also, last call for anyone who may want to join in or get another assignment.

I received an email from starbucks that they are shipping me chocolates which I believe would be from secret santa and I also received a groupon for a facial to a nearby spa. Thank you secret santa for the lovely gifts.

A very nice package from Kusmi Tea came to my office today and, for the 2nd time in a row, captured something desirable while not something I'd buy myself.

Thank you very much Surbhi and Vishal for a very considerate and appreciative gift!

All of mine are now ordered and on the way to several different countries! Looking forward to getting home on the 22nd and seeing what i've got!

Hopefully all my Recipients enjoy what I've got for them.
