Please remember to PM wharvey both when you ship your gifts (with contents and tracking for each recipient) and when you receive your gifts (with contents and a name for your santa if possible)!

Posting photos:
Alternatively: Upload your image to somewhere on the internet (a list can be found in the wiki here, and I also can recommend imgur). Once the image is uploaded, right click on the image (control-click or click with two fingers for those of you with macs), click on "copy image URL". Then in your post in this thread, paste the image URL that you previously copied between two image tags, so the result looks like:
[img]your URL here[/img]

There is no "gifts sent" part this time around-PM your sent gifts to wharvey! (though feel free to post it in the thread)

Gifts Received
Please please please PM wharvey when you have received/opened your gifts!
Include pictures if you can-and please only link to posts once you have unwrapped your gifts!

First gift of 2015!

When the Amazon truck came today I couldn't remember what I'd ordered this time. Turns out it was Santa did the ordering.

These will be enjoyed very much.

IIRC, it was a giant box with beer and pint glasses.

I've set up and will be maintaining the wiki again this year to help us keep track of all the gifts that have been posted-or at least until I disappear on vacation before christmas without internet until the new year...

If it takes an extra couple of days for me to get back to you, I know you'll understand. In case of emergency, Santa knows how to reach me.
Just back from LaLa land, where I was busy checking on Santa's various workshops that are scattered throughout the Southern California area.

Hopefully all those that PM'd me read this post on November 6th.

I'll get to all your PM's within the next day or 2.

N.B. to Santa, SanDiego1k says hi.

Alright, so I ended up with 4 packages arriving today, and I thought they were all my gifts for my recipients...turns out that two of them were gifts for me and I unknowingly opened up my gifts

From Vvbkumar, who happens to live just across the lake from me, a brand new pair of over-ear headphones to replace my aging/dying pair!


From an unknown the same santa, the Alexander trilogy by Valerio Massimo Mandredi-this was directly off my wish list, and I'm really excited to go through it

I just e mailed everyone that PM'd questions. Seems that you're taking Secret Santa seriously. ^

I'll be checking my PM's on a daily basis for now, so I'd appreciate (and so would your secret santa) a speedy response.

Thanks.

And now, back to my, I mean santa wharveys workshop.

N.B. to Santa, I may be in ROC later in the week.

And I appreciated it quite a bit. The pint glasses are still being used. The beer was consumed very soon after arriving.

Gift received update

Today when another box from Amazon arrived I had my son open it in case it was another Christmas surprise. It was! I have now received 2 boxes from Sandratravels, one containing the chocolates posted above and today's box, which I am told contains 2 more items. The kid has been placed in charge of the items and will keep them hidden until December 25th.

Thank you, Sandratravels!

I received my first gifts today! They came in two packages from the same return address -- two Van Heusen dress shirts (a great choice since I'm in a new job that has me wearing a coat and tie every day), two London Oyster cards for my upcoming trip to Europe, and the gift from ANA's inaugural flight of their 787.

Thanks, anonymous Secret Santa!
