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!

I have completed all of my Secret Santa obligations and am hoping that my giftees enjoy their presents. Now I get to sit back and relax. It is much easier to get this done early rather than putting it off (which is my default mode).

I am glad that Jinxy likes her toys. I had way too much fun trying to figure out which Lego Tehcnics to get - they are way cool. In fact they looked so fun and brought back suck good memories that I added them to my Santa list! If you are looking to unleash your inner child I suggest visiting their site: http://www.lego.com/en-us/technic .

Still waiting for items for giftee #3 to arrive.
Had a package waiting for me at the office this afternoon after returning from lunch. Another pleasant surprise and has put another smile on my face this cold Monday.

Thank you very much for the lovely gifts! I will get pictures up very soon. Patience isn't my strong suit so I opened everything right away. All very thoughtful and will definitely help me improve my curling game!

I just got it today! Merci!
I got a lovely Quebecois care package from you and I love the pearl onion confit!

Gave me an excuse to buy cheese lol.

The rest includes a maple sampler, vinaigrette, and a cookbook all from Quebec!

Received another post card from Santa today... This one from London! Santa, I don't suppose you are still there and would take a field trip, would you?

I've bought all three gifts, and received the first one.


Americana Huckleberry Retro Soda, United-branded laptop bag, CA PJs, Chocolate hazelnuts.

Thanks, Erik.

I'm looking forward to trying that soda, although I might end up using it as a mixer with Vodka

A fun box of some of my favourite things, foods, and places!

Came home from China to this fittingly East meets West box of goodies from ss2015--thanks for all the fun loot!
