From Paris with Love

There was some confusion with my gifts because I was gone for two weeks and a large number of packages to figure out from my writing work, kids, family and secret santa.

I beleive these teo gifts go together snd im sorry if Iím wrong and got confused!

This Paris garment bag is Devine and I expect Iíll have to fight my teenage daughter for it on our next trip! The orange packing cubes are the perfect size for my various girlie thangs too!

Thank you to my secret santa Stuart!

Iím a fan of the black cubes!

A whole set of Black packing cubes!!! These will certainly get used! Black goes with everything and will mix and match well with my other cubes.

I was especially excited that my teens hadnít devoured the chocolates before I had a chance to taste them!

Thank you you so much to my secret santa Debi!

I always get jealous when folks can actually wrap gifts... My packaging always look slightly mangled! Apologies for the delayed post, but I was out for quite awhile. Loving the tech theme this year... All but the coffee will join me on my flight over the pond tomorrow.

[QUOTE=WIRunner;29142412]My first secret Santa items arrived today (I look at them as being a three-fer: Christmas, St. Nick's, and since today is my birthday Birthday presents.)









A nice tote bag, hot chocolate, chocolate bars, soap, a Green Bay Packer's golf towel, and a golf head cover set for University of Washington.

(I showed the Golfer, he had to chuckle about the head covers. He, his mother, father, brother, and all went to Washington State.)[/QUOTE

Happy birthday 🎂 , belated now .

Will try to be a Secret Santa next year , was too late this year .. Jetting around as a FTer


Go Huskies !!

Not sure if this is another Santa or the same one as above. This too came in an Amazon box, no packing slip. Thank you Santa!

These goodies are from a NP Santa in Westfield, MA, another mystery Santa
. The grill and thermometer will be useful.

I got a surprise second gift from my "Secret" Santa today. A gift card to the best cheese store in the world, Fromagination. Take a look at it: https://fromagination.com/

Ironically, I bought many of the gifts for my recipient at that very store. I'm so excited to go get some stuff for myself. THANKS!!!

So far, Macys has only asked me to tell them what happened, but they haven't replied. Still waiting to see what they say UPS hasn't even said anything and normally when you tweet them they are quick to reply.

Both of them are going receive good use, thank you, Angeloedades!

Yay! Glad they made it safe and glad that you like it Karl Gustav Annus - it took a very long time to select the set because if I was buying for myself, I need it to look good!

Merry Christmas!
