    I did what I could to look into my recipient. Probably could have done more, but hopefully it is good.

    I'm sure it will be, some people are harder than others to see what they like.

    From the world's biggest Christmas store. I don't have the writing skills to paint ornaments like that

    I don't know about anyone else but some of the best and most generous Christmas presents I have gotten the last couple years have been AK Secret Santa gifts.

    I try to reciprocate in kind; don't know if I always hit the mark, but I always try; I mean it's the Holidays, after all

    I received 2 pretty nice coffee cups that have meaning for an Airedale Terrier owner. My Secret Santa must of went back 2 years in posts to find my replies to a thread. Here are the cups, and my "GINGER". Thanks to my Secret Santa, I plan on breaking them in ASAP.

    Received a santa-ish package, which reminded me that I still need to get mine out.

    Reminder, Tuesday, Dec. 19 is the deadline for first class delivery before Christmas. You can still get Priority Mail (2 day mostly) and some FedEx ground shipments by Saturday and Friday respectively. of course, if you absolutely, positively have to have it faster, you can obviously pay more for guaranteed 2 day or overnight delivery with USPS Express main or FedEx Express. Otherwise, you can send as soon as you can and packages would arrive after Christmas - Santa's Elves will not penalize you at all.

    As Christmas Day draws nearer, and as I read these "whatcha get?!?" posts, my resolve at waiting till then to tear into my SS gift is getting weaker & weaker, but in true British (which makes up 25% of my DNA!) fashion, I shall keep a stiff upper and carry on!

    Fun Fact: my SS's identity IS known to me but he doesn't know that as I have not gone public with that info. He will, if he checks back here and sees this post however! In a plot twist worthy of Serling, or possibly O. Henry, my SS benefactor is also MY SS recipient. I queried our SS mastermind 'ehoove' and was delighted to find out that this situation was pure coincidence, and not by design. So, that said, methinks I should seek a meadery less than 3k miles away and see what all the palaver is about!

    As my cousin from the deepest Ohio used to say, God rest his soul, "Merry Christmas y'all!"

    My recipient should be receiving their gift in time. However, I did get some Amazon boxes confused and did not send it out until this morning. Santa is busy this time of year.

    I did receive a 12 x 12 x 1/2" package (heh, wonder what that might be?) last week but forgot to report in. It will stay under the tree until Christmas as is my tradition, to be opened with a cup of hot chocolate, some tunes in the background, and trying to work off Christmas Eve dinner.

    I have received my Secret Santa box. I figured that I wouldn't open it until Christmas and I will post what I received then.

    My secret Santa gift went out a week ago, priority. It should have arrived by now. As for receiving, I got some lovely LP’s.

    Nothing from my Secret Santa so far. Maybe he has been too busy with more important things. My secret Santa surprise has been delivered. Hope the recipient likes it.

    I received two awesome gifts and a letter indicating a third is on it's way. The first to arrive was a coffee mug with pics of my Beagle Bailey (see my avatar) and the letter, which brought tears to my eyes. I believe I got the best Secret Santa this year! I will pay it forward next year.
