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!

Dear Mystery Santa,

Thank you for the electric grill—it will be well used. Sorry I cannot post a pic, I have tried and failed at posting photos to the thread.

Happy Holidays!
TokyoFoodie.

My last secret santa gift came in and I love it!

I received a jewelry travel case, a beer lover's guide (which I most definitely will be doing), a snarky bar and a coconut lime body scrub. I can't wait to use everything.

I also received a very nice Christmas card from Kipper and I will take her up on her offer to go on a beer adventure.

Thank you for everything!

Glamette, let me know how you like the Perfectly Posh stuff. I love the Snarky scent, and well, the name too.

Any time you want to go on a beer journey, just PM me.

I was your secret Santa. There wasn't an option to include a card, so I was hoping you would figure it out glad you liked it.

I had a final surprise in the mail today from my SS (I knew it had been delayed in the mail).

3 beautifully wrapped presents and a card!!!

A hilarious card, chocolates for Mrs. YQMYMM (She loved them!), a book for my to-read pile and a wonderful Star Wars model. I can't wait to put the model together!!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful presents nomadic.relief and thanks again wharvey for putting this together! I can't wait until next year's!

Will do Kipper!

I'm moving to a new house and have a spa day planned after the move. I look forward to using it then I will definitely PM you when I want to go on a beer journey (Doesn't that sound like a mystical quest?).

LOL, after a move you definitely need a spa day! I'd have sent you bath bombs too, had I known that!

It does sound like a mystical quest. I love it!

I was going through some family business mail late Tuesday and found that the House Elves had misfiled a packet addressed to me. Enclosed were some wonderful hand made cat toys in Christmas colours. I packed them to take back to Montreal, and when I arrived home, one of my cats became very interested in what was in my suitcase and decided to help me unpack!

Thanks again, Deds1, for the thoughtful and very popular gifts! Freebs did share with Amy, my other cat.

We will keep looking for that other package.

I'm hoping that my two recipients who didn't post also enjoyed their gifts-let's hope they didn't drop off the face of the earth...

Are your gifts stuck in the customs black hole?

I want to express my deep gratitude to Wharvey for all his efforts to make this work. I look forward to participating every year.

As a repeat participant I know that there are times when someone will sign up and then not follow through with their responsibilities. This is an unfortunate reality of life and Wharvey has absolutely no control over these situations; anyone who disparages him is an ungrateful fool.

Thanks again Wharvey - you rock!
