Thank you to my Secret Santa for the very nice gifts that arrived on Thursday. Well done, and will be put to good use!

Sorry, to disappoint! The cooking kits are just the boxes, not kits, more NC food inside! Sorry!

I got another box from a Santa (I'm guess @samosa based on above post). It contained:
A two month subscription to Harlows Harvest ($46) - However the website tells me that the gift code is expired. I have an email into the company to see if there is a glitch. I'll let you know if it doesn't work out
6 bath bombs (my daughter already claimed 3)
A body cream from Bath & Body Works
a great personalised luggage tag
a book on aviation
a Grinch hair ribbon (my daughter loves it and is planning her xmas outfit around it)
an airline pilots pin

Just had a package delivered (5.30pm on a Saturday !) from my second Secret Santa - from Germany from the postage details - thank you so much
love the cookbook and has all the conversion tables in it which is great for when I bring things back from the US to save me Googling every time ! - also the fun calendar and of course the turtle.

Thanks Secret Santa

What a wonderful surprise to receive a most thoughtful gift today from my Australian Secret Santa. I love all of it - very thoughtful and elegant. Thank you. I also appreciate that this end of the world doesnt do Amazon so the postage almost costs more than the gift.

I couldnt wait for Christmas so had to
open it today!! And now I am going to be able to enjoy the candles scent and that soothing cuppa! Many thanks.

I was informed that a package has been received for me at the address provided, from samosa ! I'll open it once I'm there for Christmas, probably on 12/22. Thank you, and know that it was received, but I have no idea what is in it and won't for a month.

I just received an unknown delivery, which has appeared to be my Santa's present! Wow, I did not expect to receive it this early, even thought it's my Black Friday purchase! I briefly saw the contents and none of those looked raw, so I will unwrap these a bit closer to Christmas! Thank you, my Santa!

My final gift should be delivered today to its new home, assuming USPS tracking is accurate.

This will be a first for me where all the gifts I have sent have been received in November. I hope my two assignments enjoy their gifts though I havent seen them post anything yet.

I have received one gift so far and an greatly looking forward to receiving the second!

unfortunately not everyone posts here on what they receive. Personally thats half the fun for me to see others reactions to their gifts and often I see stuff I never knew existed 😂👍

Some of us had packages shipped elsewhere for various reasons, so they may not be acknowledged immediately.
