Received a very nice Swiss Army backpack from my FT Secret Santa. It has the special TSA lie flat design and lots of pockets, which is perfect for carrying all my gadgets. Big thanks whoever you are

Thank you secret santa - who ever you are

I was going to wait, but who cares, Merry Christmas!
P.S.: The Loch Fyne salmon (?) is not part of it, better put that in the fridge.

Got an awesome The Future is Female print (proceeds support Emilyís List!) and a Reaist Pin. Will hang with pride in my house and the pin is already on my hoodie that I wear every day

Just got a bix box from my Secret Santa in London... with a nice handwritten card. Lots of presents in the box, including one for each of my kids... I'll post a picture on Monday.

Santa paid me a visit last night and delivered a fabulous book - "The Travel Book," appropriately named. It has pages of photos and travel hints for every country in the world, including recommendations for music, films and reading. I have been to only 41 countries, but I am inspired for my travel planning for next year, as I have 151 countries to go.

Thank you Secret Santa!

Thank you to SS: Ron


Received what is the second of two packages for my secret santa gift from Ron. I havenít opened them but the second must be something amazing as the shipping cost more than the suggested price for the gift. Thank you Ron!

Thanks so much, AtomicLush!



I arrived home from work after two LONG stress filled work days and little sleep to find a package with the most amazing gifts from Atomic Lush! She had reached out to WHarvey to ask for additional ideas. She really hit a home run! I got beautifully wrapped cookies, a lovely bottle of black truffle oil, 2 very pretty tea towels and a wonderful package of socks. I have been asking for socks for the last several years, but my pleas have fallen on deaf ears until now. These socks are so fun!


One of the really amazing things is that one of the tea towel sets matches my somewhat unusual kitchen backsplash. I love everything that you sent-thank you!!!!!

I was raised with the same philosophy - ONE present may be opened on Christmas Eve, the rest wait until the next morning.

I chuckled at your comment on U-dub vs. Wazoo. I was at a "White elephant" Christmas gift exchange last week where we were supposed to give a gift representative of where we were from. I gave a UW beer stein with a big "W" logo on it. The recipient was not familiar with UW but was thrilled because her last name began with "W" so it was perfect for her!
