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!

And by the way, Kipper is an awesome Secret Santa to have, she gave me a wonderful large Box-O-Beer last year along with other things. Plus I got to meet her and her husband for the exchange since we lived fairly close.

First package mailed to the UK! (hint for my giftee). PM sent to Wharvey.

Other gifts are purchased and were wrapped last night (another hint, I'm a terrible wrapper). I hope to mail them this weekend

A Italian phrase book (that has so much more than just phrases, lots of travel tips) for my planned trip to Italy next May, a really cool wall mounted bottler open that will be a welcome addition to the Man Cave, three different sauces, and a rub/spice assortment.

Thank you again!
Glad I'm not the only one who can't wait!

LOL, Had I not had so much going on last Saturday, I'd have sent you an email to see if you wanted to meet for another drink. I did stop at Mom & Pop's Pierogies briefly. Trust me, we'll be back up that way to stop there again.

Boy, it's a tough crowd! If you must know, I did save some for myself.

I received a postcard from San Francisco today, indicating that my Santa is shopping all over the place for the perfect gifts for me. Santa did ask if I was being a good girl this year... Really, Santa? Am I ever not good?

Actively shopping for my giftees. A note to my Santa's: I have a strict policy that I will not open until Christmas. I am setting up a tree this year to put the gifts under.

Hoping to get mine all mailed by the first of December this year!

I usually don't post 'off topic' on Flyertalk, but I'll make an exception since I think this is important.

Next time you're in New York City, head here for homemade crepe-like blintzes and boiled or fried pierogies. Even better than Mom. http://veselka.com/

These days, the neighborhood has an east Village/hipster vibe.
But... it still retains its Polish/Ukrainian feel.

All three of my gifts packaged and sent.

If you live in Toronto, Calgary or Edmonton you just might be getting a gift in the mail in the next few days!

Had tonnes of fun and looking forward to seeing the reaction!

Last time I was in NYC, I was in Manhattan, and someone delivered knish from Brooklyn to Manhattan for me. I need more Polish/Ukrainian places in my life.

Well, woke up today to receive my first gift. Thank you very much to my Secret Sant from Shrewsbury in England.

I received some very unique Welsh Single Malt (thank you very much!!), some Chinese Tea and a Swiss Avro Model. As well as a handwritten Card.

My first gift arrived today! It's a large box and quite weighty! I am trying to resist the urge to open it until we are at least in the same month as Christmas!

Gifts for my recipients will be on their way shortly!

Email anytime you want to meet for a drink! And i think you told me that you bought extra for yourself last year.
