My kibblers received a 3 month subscription to Bark Box, so each month, they'll receive toys and treats in the mail! They all say "thank you very much!" to my Santa, and they can't wait for their first box to arrive.

Had my first package waiting for me at my dad's. I forgot I had used his address. Was from a Santa in WA. It was wonderful. A beautiful scarf of a map of London circa 1932. Super fun to look at. Some Hawaiian chocolate that I've already gotten into. And some wonderful Heather and Moss soap and pouch from Ireland. Also a nice personalized card. Thank you SS. I love it all

Thanks to EJL for the awesome gifts! (Two posters, a flask, some chocolates, and an American 777-300 model!) Just in time for my birthday tomorrow!

Thanks again to Secret Santa #2



I sent my husband out today to get Christmas ornaments to fill the largest of the glass containers that I got from Secret Santa #2. This will grace our Christmas table this Thursday

I also received this great gift. Funny just today I was talking about needing cookie cutters and maybe baking cookies. And this is super funny. Note said a little treat while I wait for my main gift

Merci beaucoup to my Secret Santa from Montreal! The goodies I'm particularly excited for are the ice cider, and the liver pate! The chocolate is already gone.

Oops.

Got THE most wonderful secret Santa gifts!!

Many many thanks and a HUGE merry Christmas to Kipper, who sent me a box full of gifts I'm totally in love with!

The first was a universal adapter which I actually had on my list of things to buy for an upcoming trip to Ireland.

Next an awesome book about Ireland with a great map which we will absolutely use.

Next was several kinds of coffee that totally warmed my heart - they're from a company called grounds n hounds, and the sales go to benefit a doggie charity. Not only does the coffee smell amazing, but I couldn't think of a single coffee maker I'd rather see money go toward.

This was my first year participating, and I am absolutely blown away by how thoughtful and totally perfect this gift was!

My most sincere thanks, Kipper!

Received my first gif from my SS on Friday

They sent me a bunch of goodies, including a nice gift card for my daily caffeine fix, an awesome model plane, and a nice knife as well as a bunch of other goodies



Thanks, SS!!!

Also received my second SS gift on Saturday.

Contained an awesome chart of beers and appropriate barware as well this beautifully wrapped package.



In that nicely wrapped container is a very cool water infuser!

You're welcome! I'll add a plug for Grounds and Hounds Coffee--they partner with several rescues throughout the US, and 20% of their proceeds go to these no-kill animal rescues to help them further their mission of rescuing animals.

It's very yummy coffee too.

Returned to my home base a couple days ago and there was a package waiting for me inside! Thanks a lot sorjai, I especially appreciated the note in the card. Here's what was in the box...



-Battery for phone charging on the go
I've seen other people with these and always thought they looked ridiculous but then my phone has been dying every time I've traveled recently (too much time in old United interiors!) so this is very much appreciated.

-Fancy earplugs
Perfect for all the concerts I go to, hope I don't lose them when the show gets wild

-Giant magnetic bottle opener
As soon as I get a fridge in my new place it's going right in the middle. The piece de resistance!

Awesome gifts, thanks so much.
