No, it wasn't me! I cannot take credit for what sounds like a great gift!

My neighbour has picked up 2 Fedex boxes (shipped from CA) from my doorstep on Monday and put them in the covered porch area. I'll open them when I get home and post pics. I think these are the boxes that one of my SS had sent. Thank you in advance! I can't wait to get back and open them.

In an effort not to give away too much of your info, I sent it to the address in the town that begins with a D, as I expected it to get to you before you set out.

Hmm, that's odd that it's not here yet then.

Now why didn't I check the tracking last night? Today (19th) is expected delivery date.

I had originally planned acquiring some award-winning local beers from my hometown and some pint glasses or mugs for you, but thought, 'she's been doing this a while, she's probably had beer several times in the past and enough glasses to stock the bar at an airline club in a hub. I'll be original and get her something for the dogs!'

Here's to acknowledge and thank FTSS from CA who sent a USPS box full of assorted chocolates. . .

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

So I go on holiday Monday and haven't received any gifts yet from my 3 SS's. I don't get back in UK till January 6th so your parcels might be returned to you as we don't have a concierge in the building either.

If any of my SS's want to reach out to me with tracking information then I'm happy to be informed where my gifts are, and make sure they don't get returned to you.

Thanks.

You could PM wharvey and he can tell you if there are any parcels going your way.

I received an awesome package from Amazon.com via Walker that had a book about baseball stories and a set of Himalayan shot glasses. Both will be put to good use very soon

I also received a second package from Ton E with two more shot glasses! Certainly unexpected but very well welcomed!

Thanks for an awesome Secret Santa group! I sent all five of my packages and know via tracking they've been received (but only had one person post here), and I've received all of my gifts so I'm totally complete. But I can't wait til next year!

I just received my first gift from a Secret Santa that remained nameless, thank you so much, you hit almost all my vices, or at least the ones I named! I received an amenities kit from USAirways, three awesome beers, a emergency power stick, a bore lights, starbucks card and a beautiful card! Sorry about the typo on my original note that stumped them, I meant Nook books, or really any ebooks. Plus a note saying I will get another package. Can't wait. Thank you so much, I wish I could thank you by message but you remained just Santa!

Now to try to post a picture for the first time.

LOL, thank you! I was concerned that it had been stolen off of the porch by our neighbor's black lab! She's been known to seek treats from us, and I was afraid perhaps she'd sniffed it out and carried it off! If it's being sent via USPS, it'll be delivered on Monday. Our mail is on hold until then.

I never am unhappy with beer, or glasses, because I love seeing the different breweries and sampling different beers, although sometimes, I am disappointed, in that I taste amazing beers but then can't find them in PA!

I was anxiously awaiting a UPS delivery today, as I saw I was supposed to receive something from Amazon, and thought I'd been a really good girl and it might be something for us. I opened to box to find that it was our Christmas gift from my SIL, and was a little disappointed it wasn't from this! I love it, but...

FlyerTalk Secret Santa 2014 - Gift 4 by desquiliano, on Flickr

Nicksterguy, thank you very much for the gift. Now I have a plane for each country in which I have studied and/or lived.

Thanks also for the book. I have about 25 books on my To Read list.

With this, I've received all 4 gifts.

Glad you liked it Now we just need to get you in one of those US Airways Envoy seats! (ps will be interested in hearing your opinion on the Peanut Butter Beer from Athens, GA - I was told it tastes a lot better than it sounds. Tried to send regional, i.e. Southern, craft beers)
