A big wonderful package from Dean and Deluca arrived yesterday! It has several types of salt, a selection of spices, olive oil, vinegar, and gummy frogs! Plus a great patent-leather tote that will be great on my next biz trip and all my running around town when I don't want to a grocery shopping bag or a diaper bag.

Thanks Santa!

FlyerTalk Secret Santa 2014 - Gift 3 (part 2) by desquiliano, on Flickr

I'm assuming this also comes from Redhead.

Thanks! Now I can enjoy my beer.

I see that my Sant-ee received her gift. She actually seems to have had two very similar gifts from different santas, but one must be from me. Hope they become well-loved! (Have you figured out that it's you yet?)

I got a mystery package in Christmas wrapping today, but alas, it was not from my secret Santa (turned out to be something I bought for my daughter, the sender was just getting in the spirit. Lovely touch.). Still plenty of time, but I'm getting jealous looking at all your pics!

Came home from shipping my last two packages to find a package on the porch for me. When I walked in, the dogs about knocked the package out of my hands, and when I opened it, I found why!

Thanks to hdawg, the kibblers each have their own bag of yummy treats, and we have a new "sling" for the car, so when we travel with them, our car won't be covered in Cobaka fur! I also received some yummy honey straws and a sweet note, indicating the choices behind each item, and mentioning that a Bottle Breacher will be shipped in January.

Thank you, hdawg!!!

And now it seems my Sant-ee has had three very similar gifts...sorry, kipper. And there I was thinking I'd had an original idea.

Dog treats? Trust me, the kibblers are crazy for treats! We're slowly working on training Mauser for his CGC (the only one of my defective* dogs that has any chance of passing it), so treats are very useful!

* They may be defective, but I love them!

I just picked up a package that was being held at the Post Office from FlyerBeek, and what a delight it was to open it! It had three vintage airline shot glasses, certainly a welcome addition to my collection! Thanks so much for the thoughtful gift

Thanks soooooo much Secret Santa for the most wonderful gifts. Also learned that UPS packages can be picked up at the local laundry place.
Thought for a second should I wait until x-mas, nope

Very interesting books, one about Bletchley Park and one What if (amazing examples) and lovely gadgets: Adapter which includes ports for mobiles very useful when we travel and the other item is a chromecast

Once again A BIG THANK YOU Secret Santa

I just received a very thoughtful package from hdawg for me and my wife.

The products from Savannah Bee including lip balm, body lotion, body wash, and honey straws are great.

Also received a Grid-It organizer which will be very helpful with packing, a great eye mask, and a scarf for my wife.

The final gift was a headphone splitter. I watched "Begin Again" on my way back from Madrid last week and a headphone splitter plays an important roll in the film. I am looking forward to using ours!

Thanks hdawg - you really hit the mark with your gifts. We love them.

I'm glad they'll be useful then! You should have a three month subscription and can choose your delivery dates.
