I did receive one gift so far from my secret santa (Amazon box leaves me wondering who and what!). I am eagerly awaiting gift number 2 and I will open and post pics on Dec. 25th!

Thanks to my great secret Santa from the UK. We received a nice package today with something for everyone in the family including the dogs. Faulty towers series dvds in honor of my occupation as a hotel GM. Also nice that i have only seen a couple episodes. A Great British bake off cook book. A beautiful leather roots 73 passport holder and even some Santa dog socks. My wife will enjoy the gingerbread black tea. Of course from the us we may need to brew enough of it to fill a gallon container, add sugar and make it ice tea. Thanks again secret Santa

John

Gift received - but disposed of

Well, I had a "unique" and disappointing experience with one of my Secret Santa gifts. I'm sure it was strictly an oversight by the gift sender, but something to keep in mind for future reference.
The gift was a bonsai tree. My hints did not indicate anything near that and I'm not a plant person at all (Secret Santa wouldn't know that part). Problem is - I live in a US/Canada border town, and I provide both addresses to make it easier for my Secret Santa(s). The item was shipped to my US address, but you can't easily bring plants across the border. So I was forced to dispose of the plant immediately after opening the box.

Oh well...

Awesome Action Camera from my Secret Santa!

Thank you very much Santa MrDplus! What a great gift!




I am a school teacher of Design class and the Akaso Action Camera (similar to a GoPro) is greatly appreciated, as I will use it for video recording students working on their design projects, and for other school (and personal/family) events!

Have a blessed Christmas, everyone!

Got a fantastic bonsai tree (juniper). Not sure why this was selected....but I always wanted one! Our family loves it. Thanks to the SS...its sitting in our garage surrounded by gravel and water - just as the instructions stated.

PM sent to Wharvey...

My shipping tracking shows one of mine has been delivered, and two were held by customs (but indicate they are on the move again now, phew - I didn't think I had bought anything that dodgy!) My apologies to the two that are still awaiting gifts - I am hoping they will be there Monday.
