So is your Santa... Although, I think wharvey's comment may be referring to when Santa was in college, not now...

I received a package full of yummy treats from UAE and Turkey and some small cool frog carvings from Secret Santa #4. There was even a frog in a University of Chicago t-shirt (my daughter commandeered that!). Thanks Stephen!

Just discovered the large document pipe lying in the mailroom was my gift from secret santa who in my case happens to live in Poland .

Lots of old airplane pics, a boeing 2015 calendar, polish candy and a card. I'll add a picture when I get home!

It was worth to queue at the post office! Definitely!!

My gift, from Australia, dragged from the parcel, with nice note.



And unpacked:



Dear Santa Liz!! Thanks a lot, very much appreciated
Wool for big jumper and lip balms - ideal gifts for winter in this part of Europe !

And kudos and/or respect for costs of sending the parcel.

I was told on Wednesday by Santa that something was in the mail but I haven't gotten it yet. Should I be concerned?

Just returned from a trip and had two boxes waiting for me! First one was a box from the HeadElf that is a fan of Dad Posts . Inside was a tractor trailer toy from a SS that my son is going to love.

The next box (not sure if they are from same SS?) was incredible!! I really wish I knew who sent me this one because the gifts were not only wrapped SO beautifully but each one was super personalized and very thoughtful.

I got a $25 Sephora giftcard,
a custom kids travel airplane backpack with "Aiden" (my son's name) personalized on it (I was jumping like a little kid when I opened this!!)
An airplane fork for Aiden to use during his in flight dining
a Sleep sack for my little girl on the way (cheers to my SS for digging in and finding out I was expecting a girl! Makes me think I know them maybe???
A delicious gingerbread cookie that lasted maybe 3 minutes
A christmas flip/pop up book for little Aiden
a phone portable battery pack since my phone is always dying
And I think that's it… not sure if I am missing anything but this was my favorite gift to open by far! Seriously made my day

If you PM wharvey with the contents of the shipment and ask if they're from the same santa, he'll tell you

He did put a note that it is Norwegian swag, very high on my wish list.

Thank you very much for your considerate gift, Ben!
As a WI native living in AZ for 11 years I couldn't get you any Chicago gear! I'm lucky my travels have sent me to Norway!

Happy you received the gifts. Even more happy you are waiting. Sorry for the wrap job, the wife does my wrapping usually haha!

That little airplane fork might not make it through security. Maybe his inflight dining might have to be at home

Hope your Mom is okay....we are going through a similar situation with my 90 year old mother in law.

All the best.

Happy to have one item on its way to a fellow FTer and working on getting the other one shipped.

I sent out my gift to my Secret Santa earlier this week. Would someone mind updating the wiki to reflect at some point? Thanks.

This is my first year participating and it's been a lot of fun picking out gifts and following along on this thread. Thanks to wharvey and all the others with a hand in organizing it.
