FlyerTalk Secret Santa 2014 - All Gifts Delivered by desquiliano, on Flickr

All gifts have been delivered. One has been acknowledged here.

Interestingly, three went to the same state. The other one went to the opposite side of the country.

I just received an awesome SS package from Tom in VT, filled with University of Vermont and Montreal Canadians gear (two shot glasses, a t shirt, a hat, and a bumper sticker). I have a *huge* shot glass collection so they are already being displayed with pride and the hat has joined my hat collection!

Thanks for the awesome gift

P.S. Thanks to my other two Secret Santas! You're gifts are still being enjoyed, as I treated myself to Starbucks today using the gift card from one of my Secret Santas and indulged in some candy from my other Secret Santa as I was watching a movie last night!

Dear Secret Santa who I believe is named Lucy E Squires.

Got the most yummy gift today, the gift of Bacon in several varieties:



Winnie and Tigger also were happy to be gifted multi packs of Greenies



That's Tigger trying to ham it up to get treats early. MY kitties will have to wait till Dec 24

Thank you LUCY! I don't know your FT handle but I am touched.

Diet be dammed.

PS HOPE I posted photos correctly. I'm on Facebook as Catman Mark Blanchard

uuh...those are linked to private images-what you should do is right click on the image, click "copy image URL", and paste that URL between the [IMG] and [/IMG] tags in your post

Jobs done! Both my recipients have acknowledged their gifts - one via PM and one in a post in this thread. Unfortunately I too am either too clueless or too new/junior to update the wiki.

Now to sit tight and await my own gifts!

I am so jealous over the bacon!!! The kibblers are drooling, and trying to figure out who is driving to your house so they can enjoy the bacon!

Dear Secret Santa who I know is SwissCircle AKA Oliver. Thank you for the awesome gifts!

A Qantas A380 model which looks great on top of my shelf near my desk! (I have always wanted to go to Australia)


A subscription to National Geographic Traveler! Packed with even more places I want to travel to.


Thanks, Oliver and Merry Christmas!

It looks like you're trying to link directly from your computer-you have to upload it to somewhere and then link to the image, including FT

Put my gift to good use right away! Although it's making me miss my beast who is at the Kennel while I'm enjoying some sunshine.

Thanks Secret Santa it was a welcome surprise!

Merry Christmas!!
We used them on the trip and they were great. The fact that they fold up into themselves is a huge plus! Now she just needed to remember to turn off the power switch. 3 batteries later

A tomato book, we've got two greenhouses out back just for tomatoes so it'll come in very useful next summer
The back in the day bakery cookbook, timed perfectly for some Christmas baking. I really can't wait to try some of the recipes.
Honey Straws, never even knew these existed. Already have them in my bag for when I need to add some sweetness to herbal teas. I'll be stocking up on them next time I'm over in the US.

Just after signing off on my last box to leave Ireland. Should make it to Australia by Wednesday/Thursday. Looking forward to next year already
Yay! Glad you like it ... now if I could only eat some of those tomatoes
