Secret Santa XII - Gifts are arriving!

95 posts in this topic

So, pup decided that what's mine is his and ate through the packaging on my Amazon parcel. So I now know that my wonderful SS bought me...Everything Now, the latest Arcade Fire album! :wub: thank you so much, I have such a love for Arcade Fire and while I have had it downloaded for a long while now, the album will be well used. I work in a pub/hotel and I'm in desperate need of a new CD to listen to...if I listen to Enya once more I might just scream :) ...

Thank you Secret Santa. I have no idea who you are, and can only make one vaguely educated guess, which I will save until more have shipped and received

There's not a lot of Santa guessing this year... I have no clue who my SS is either.

Lots of fun hearing about everyone's gifts though!!

2 more boxes have arrived...one amazon and one Not...it has a clue, which as my fellow acrophiles could tell y'all, doesn't mean much in my ability to figure stuff out...

My guess, based only on a vague clue from a PM Lany forwarded

is Anubiel. Because Lany asked a confirmation of address, then I got it the next day, so I assumed it was someone from the U.K. failing that, I turned to someone European

Got my final box and it had a lovely cozy, purple scarf in it! The box I got yesterday had some yummy salty licorice which I am of course already eating! :wub:

Thank you so, so, so much, SS! I still have no idea who you are, except you have excellent taste and you're too damn generous!

Received another parcel today. Very tempted to open it but have resisted for all of 30 minutes so far...

Three separate packages of SS gifts have arrived.  Unable to keep myself from opening them, I now have two kinds of licorice to eat and a beautiful silk scarf.  With birds.  So pretty!

And here I thought I'd never find dark chocolate covered black licorice again.  Not only did my SS find it, but found a version with chipolte - so even better!

Thank you thank you SS.  I am pretty sure I know who you are ....  <3

I received another mysterious box yesterday! I can never wait until Christmas Eve, so of course I opened it straight away. A gorgeous teatray with mugs and tea! I drink buckets of tea at work, so this is perfect! Thank you so much! I think my Secret Santa must be British. Or a very clever American or other ordering from UK sites :huh:

I caved. I opened it. Someone bought me the GoT 2018 calendar. It is lovely, will post pics when I get home.

Also I have a name for my SS but don’t know who that name corresponds to on the board. And I suspect there was some sneakiness by using Amazon marketplace to buy from a U.K. seller to throw me ^_^. So, thank you, but I still don’t know who you are! :) 

 

Eta; just realised the name that was left could have been the seller’s name which puts me back to square one! But if it is t I think I have it narrowed down to three candidates

I keep forgetting to check the thread, because no matter how I click on Follow the thread, it won't let me follow!

I just opened my gift boxes. The horribly crushed one contained an unharmed box of fudge, Guinness Luxury Fudge, to be exact, sinfully, addictively good! And I'm trying to eliminate sugar from my life!. :lol:

I also received a beautiful ornament with a nativity scene on it (my Santa knows I regularly attend church, I think).

Best, and funniest, of all, I was sent 5 beautiful pairs of socks! My Santa did not know this, but my best friends with whom I celebrate Christmas Day with (Christmas Eve with my family) and exchange gifts with, have a long running family joke/requirement that Christmas gifts MUST INCLUDE SOCKS! We do secret Santa among us nowadays, because we reached the point where we were hip deep in wrapping paper and once the kids started marrying, the cost of gift giving was getting ridiculous. My secret Santa gave me a Roots cardigan sweater that looks like a classic grey sock, with light grey trim with a red stripe through it. Pit socks, they're usually called here. So the gift was just classic!  :wub:

Thank you so very much, Secret Santa mine!  I know who it is but I'm not saying anything yet.... :devil:

My Secret Santa is the BOMB!  I received a reed diffuser, a narwhal coffee cup (which everyone at work will know is mine), a whale tail necklace, and some sperm whale socks!  Everything came in beautiful drawstring gift bags (one of which is designated for my Brady tarot).  Now I need to figure out which if you sneaky loves sent it!  My Westeros Secret Santa is the Best! https://imgur.com/gallery/wXVB9
