I'm glad I found the right flo-e. When googling someone, there's always a chance of find thing the prong person

Titanium Earplugs, thank you Santa. I guessed they might be these and I had a long flight coming so I opened them up and they're amazing to use along with the Bose headphones
Best sleep I've ever had on a plane !

Glad to hear that they have already come in handy.

If they are that good I should maybe consider a pair for myself as well.

Happy quiet travels

A package arrived for me today from my Secret Santa! I haven't opened it yet, so pictures to follow.

AND I checked on tracking for my Secret Santa recipient & the package arrived and is available for pickup at their P.O. box. Well done, USPS! I wasn't sure how long it would really take a package to go halfway across the US during December. :-)

Thank you CPH and yes they really are very good, make sure to try all the sizes of foam that come with them so you know which feels most comfy

Merry Christmas to you and yours

My second secret Santa arrived today! Woohoo, thank you my mysterious coffee supper. All under the tree waiting until I can no longer, or my boys do the honours on my behalf.

No, I opened the packages, but didn't start opening the 12 days of socks until tonight. I follow advent calendars!

Mr. Kipper is insisting he isn't opening his package until Christmas.

Received a box from Buckeye Craft Beer. Said box contained a 6-pack of Maumee Bay GlassHopper IPA and a 6-pack Maumee Bay Glass City Pale Ale. There was a note that indicated I would also receive a package from Amazon, so based on prior posts and my Amazon package from earlier in the month, I'm guessing this was from jamesteroh. I'm happy, as with the weather, the beer was nice and cold when I opened the box.

A great Tea Forte gift set, Republic of Tea Good Hope vanilla and a Fodor’s book to help me plan our upcoming late Spring trip to Oregon. Thanks very much- all will be enjoyed!

I received a lovely box today from BeautifulEva which contained an X-Files throw, penguin socks (!!!), penguin paper clips, candles and a bottle of bubble bath. What a wonderful box of goodies. Thank you so very, very much! :-)

Head Santa Update:

I have updated my files with all the information you have sent me.... I am a bit concerned about the number of blank fields... with gifts that have not been confirmed as shipped yet.

In addition, remember you need to detail to me what exactly you ship. Many of you say you shipped but do not tell me what.... so when people start telling me what they got... if they had more than one Santa... I have no way to give proper credit in my spreadsheet.

Also, remember, you MUST message me.... posting in this thread is not sufficient.

This year does seem slow. I've received one (from ohlradio) secret santa gifts this year. - and I have four. Hope they make it by the 25th!

Package Received

I received a box and was finally able to open it from Erik in Seattle.

A goody box of treats, including a Southwest Airlines drawstring bag and lapel pin, chocolates & candy, cocoa, a travel mug, and “Soap for Geeks - WiFi scented”!

I can’t wait to try the Ginger Dark Chocolate!

Thank you!!!

Jim

Secret Santa Goodies!
