Many thanks to my SS, PSUPaul! Also many apologies has his gifts arrived over a week ago and I procrastinated posting the pictures.

Here is what came out of the package:



And when I eagerly opened them I saw this:



The book on London is awesome and I'm starting to read it with my daughters as we plan a trip for this summer. I have twin girls who are 15 years old and they laid claim to the chocolate pretty quick!

In the card was a nice note and information that another package would be arriving in a few days - which it did. Sorry I don't have a photo of that but it's a soft case for holding electronics accessories (headphones, chargers, etc.) which is great because I usually just stuff things in my pockets or bag so it will be great to have it in a protective case.

Thanks SS Paul!

I hope I can make it! At least I'll have some wrapped gifts under the tree this year.

Thank you very much to my SS! I shook the card envelope a little and heard some coins. I'm looking forward to finding out what they are on Christmas.

Oh oh oh! I received another package today from my Secret Santa. This time I opened the package because the return address was Pilot and Captain and I knew it was the EWR shirt I requested. And it was! My third home mmmm. Love it. Thank you Bellevue Santa! I would model it but I just ate dinner so here's a picture from the website:

Thank you Adam who went over and beyond as a SS for me! Apart from the makeup voucher I also received today a candle, notebook and some lovely products from Ireland. Appreciated so much especially as TNT isn't cheap.

A big thank you to the SS who sent me a gift certificate for Shutterfly with the note to "start my own travel photo collection on my walls" - as a new homeowner with very barren walls (well actually, whole apartment!) this was a very thoughtful gift. Now comes the hard part ... picking photos!!!

PS I was your SS a couple years back, so I think it's a lovely full circle we've come! (Don't know if that was intentional on your's or wharvey's part, but it was a nice touch!)

I managed to contain my self until Mrs. Sinecure got home. But boy it was hard!
I want to thank my SS for the awesome package!

Bear that converts to a travel pillow, Beer toque, beer soap, chocolates, and a $25 gift card to Alaska Airlines.

Since you know, I'll come out from the North Pole. I saw that, too! I was going to send art but then got a canvas of my own delivered and they do such as good job. It seriously looks painted! It was a no-brainer once I saw Shutterfly ships to Canada, often for free. Happy Holidays!

Received from kelseyr

Super excited about this package I got from @kelseyr ... something for the whole family



I've never gotten into packing cubes, but I think for underwear and socks these guys will work perfectly.

The dog toys will be a big hit with the family. My golden is super mellow and we still have toys from the 4+ years ago when we adopted him!

The cocoon / grid-it is an upgraded version of the one I have (upgrade=awesome!) and the coffee bean safe is something I've been eyeing for a while and haven't pulled the trigger on. My morning coffee is a routine I dearly miss whenever I'm on the road. If this one works out I'm going to get a few bigger ones. My wife and I use different beans so this is FANTASTIC for us

Thank you so much!

package from PSUPaul

I swear, I'm probably the most annoying / hardest person to get gifts for ... but am a complete sucker for local anything. When it comes to local food / snacks I'm a TOTAL sucker; love it!



... and my dog is a complete sucker too. He had a single chip. Thanks so much for all the local PA noms (they're 1/2 gone now) and for the skooba travel nerd pouch. The zipper is key for all the random crap that I tend to throw in there. It'll pair nicely with my grid-it ... I carry way too much with me!

Thanks @psupaul

secret santa gift received - santa not identified

A great package of goodies from an unidentified Santa ^^

Legos (Harry Potter!!!), a pop culture game (we're pop culture dorks), car usb adapter (finally I can now actually leave one in our car), and a chanukah card (i'm jew-ish ... dad was a jew, mom not ... so the jews won't claim me, but I can claim to be -ish) with a nice amazon gift card in it.

Thank you so much!!!!
