I got a random box in the mail and am not sure if its Flyertalk SS related. Got an ABC Arbonne Baby Care package.

Samosa Rocks!

Today I came home to my package from my Secret Santa, Samosa. I'm not going to open the wrapped gifts until Christmas (and the Portland coffee will be the first to be enjoyed), but I promise to post another photo at that time. I'm thrilled that he did a little detective work and I LOVE the UNLV throw, my alma mater. The card enclosed teases me with mention of Steelers and scuba items and a "cultural book." If I was Jewish, I'd open one per day like Hanukkah.😉

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

Came home today to my first Secret Santa Package. Gifts kept falling out of the box, it was great.



Included were all sorts of useful itms and the most useful item of all, CASH. The 100 Pesos will come in handy when we fly to Cancun this Saturday.




We have already packed our things in to the handy packing cubes and I may have enjoyed the beverage that was included tonight while decorating the house. Thanks again for the great gifts.

I was going to get the cat a spinner for Christmas.
He loves to bat things that spin.
Maybe he shouldn't take it to school with him.

Received a rather large box today from tcl. I opened it, because, well, what did anyone expect?

I found several wrapped packages, which included a present for Mr. Kipper (he is waiting to open his), a bag of Orijen dog treats (the dogs are loving those), two different types of coffee, lots of Yankee Candle goodies, and the best part? A box called, "12 days of socks." For those who don't understand why I'd be so excited about socks, I love socks. I love them enough that Mr. Kipper has imposed a rule on buying socks. For every pair I *buy*, I must purge two. The rule doesn't apply if someone gives me socks.

I received some more very thoughtful gifts in the mail. I was so excited to open up all the packages. My Santa's this year really hit the mark. Thank You Secret Santa

I then came home and had more packages waiting from Kentucky. I thought I had gotten all my gifts already. Thanks you so much Secret Santa. You even got gifts for my son. He was so excited. He was complaining that he never gets anything in the mail and this made both of our days

Glad you and little Mr liked them Deds1! I always enjoyed receiving mail - especially a package - when I was little. Happy Holidays!!!

Iím so glad you liked the gifts! I had lots of fun shopping for you, and the 1-2-3 blocks were quite a discovery. I have to admit being tempted to order a second set of the coffee cups for myself as well

Thank you so much David and Merry Christmas!
