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!!!

OMG that website has me drooling. Looks divine!

The final thing I was waiting on for my Secret Santa giftee arrived today. Originally I wanted to pick it out in person, but sometimes real life interferes in ways one cannot anticipate. So good news - I can wrap tomorrow and hit the mailing place on Sunday. (Thank heavens our mailing places are open on Sunday.) ;-)

I will send a message to our Santa organizer on Sunday with the correct info for gifts, shipping info, etc. Just wanting to update here! Thanks!!

Wow thank you dfwgolfer1. I received a package the day before Thanksgiving and it was put in the closet. I opened the card today and the gifts are under the tree!

Thank you not so Secret Santa (BXIAN). These came nicely wrapped but I forgot to take a picture before I opened them up. I love love love my gifts. I will surely be pampering myself with them. Thank you.


I can't wait to open them all and treat myself.

Secret Santa #1 Gift Received

Thanks to FlyerTalk "Kaka" for the unique gift of "Bookiture": It's a book that opens up to become a stool! Very neat!


Secret Santa Gift from Kaka

This will make a fun conversation piece when we have guests. Thanks for the delicious aroma coffee, too!

A big thank you to Canforce for his great presents!
While i like I pretend I have total self control I couldnít stop myself from opening them almost immediately!

I look forward to trying the scotch tonight while reading through the Scotch Handbook.

the presents even caught the interest of Prosecco, one of my cats!

I think UPS confused your address with mine. I believe that should've been sent to me.

Should I be worried that I haven’t gotten anything yet? I’m a first-time participant! Or do a lot of people send last-minute?

There is A bit of a last minute rush. Or I'd people are shipping internationally, sometimes it takes a bit longer than expected. I would not worry yet. Still two weeks to go until Christmas.

youll probably see a bunch more posts this week. Christmas is partially falling on a weekend this year so shipping dates are fairly normal. (I havenít finished my shopping yet, so donít worry.) one of the years I participated, I got both the same week as Christmas.

I try to time the gifts I send to arrive by December 20 with the thought that people will open them on Christmas. I know some folks prefer to open gifts as they arrive, but I'm a traditionalist.
