Seeing as my SS is someone super organised and all round wonderful, i thought i better start this thread.

Thank you so much SS!  My present arrived yesterday and is patiently waiting for our tree to go up so it can make the children jealous (cause mum has a present and they don't).

I'll come back christmas day for a proper thank you!

Thanks to my organised ss. I got my gift on Tuesday. Need to set up the tree today so I have somewhere to put.

Mine arrived today!

I wasn't planning to open it until Christmas but my 6yo got to the parcel before me and saw it was a present and began nagging (despite knowing it was for me, not him). It's been 42C here today so I didn't have the energy to argue with him haha!

Thanks so much secret santa, I really like my gift. It will come in handy for sure. Somehow I have lost all of my cheese knifes so this is perfect, and the platter and wooden board will definitely be used.

Happy Christmas x

I think mine actually arrived a few days ago but DP or the kids took delivery of it and I found it on the kitchen bench this evening.

I opened it and I am so glad I did! I absolutely LOVE the earrings. They are so me and I can’t wait to wear them tomorrow :)

Thankyou EB SS!

Thanks, SS, for my present.  It arrived today.  I love the notebook, and especially the purple sparkly pen.  The clips will come in useful next year, trying to keep my daughter's school stuff in piles, rather than being scattered all over the house.

Thank you to my SS - the reusable coffee mug (which is the perfect pattern), the organic chocolate and the beeswax candle - When we sat down for dinner tonight we lit it and the smell is amazing....

It was lovely having  a stranger purchase such perfect 'me' gifts with only a small list of likes/ dislikes to go by.

After a hectic day at work it was a lovely gift to come home to.

Received my SS gift today, thank you! It is under the tree for Xmas day.

I just realised though, I didn’t wrap my SS gift! I apologise heaps, I was straight out of an egg collection and in a lot of pain and still a bit woozy from the drugs! Hope to do better next year :(

I got mine today - thank you SS

I am not goign to open it til Christmas day. will be nice to have a gift i will like/use (am sure!) than useless gift/cash, no thought.

And Wolf, i didn't wrap mine either! So don't worry!

Maybe a warning to a few people who want to hold off til Christmas to not even open the postage.

Mine arrived yesterday, it's under the tree waiting. I did open the card though.

Thank you to my SS for both the gift and the lovely message in the card - it was very appreciated.

Dear SS,

Thank you for my wonderful book on Framing! I can't wait to try out one of the projects!

I was going to be good and wait until Christmas to open my SS gift (so I had one surprise under the tree) but my husband received the parcel and thought it was something he had ordered and then realised it was address to me. He then called me and said "Oh, your framing book has arrived". Sigh!

Anyway, a very big thank you!!! Merry Christmas!

Santa has arrived.  Thank you so much to my secret Santa;  I opened my front door and there it was!!   A special Christmas delivery instead of being jammed into the community mailbox! Rural that I am!

I will endeavour to get back  to you come Christmas Day when I open it.  But will see how I go as I may be full of Christmas cheer!!! But will repost xxxx

Thank you so much.  Have a awesome Christmas to you and your family xxx

Merry Christmas everyone!

To my secret santa, thank you!  I love the harry potter mug, and the tea smells divine.

I sneakily opened my present before everyone is up, and now i think i might go make a cup of tea.

Again, thank you!
