    Unless I'm your Secret Santa, in that case - keep that crap to yourself!

    I think that's all my bits in now. Just got to make it look presentable as gift. Very much enjoying this.

    Right...bits ordered. I tried to use Bricklink for the first time and it just gave random stupid errors with no explanation while trying to check out. Stuff that for a game of soldiers...I just ended up using my usual sources (I'm giving nothing away!).

    Only thing is, I had a panic moment and couldn't remember if I'd sent them to my uni address or my home address - there should be time either way, but it'll be tighter if it was to home...

    I should clarify and say thank you to whomever sent this to me.

    My gift arrived!  It's gift-wrapped and waiting under my tree for Christmas.  The size of the box looks like Santa was generous.  So, many thanks SS!

    Look at those cute wittle polybags under the tree <3



    Either my Santa made something special, got me one of the polybags I wanted, something bigger is coming, or he/she conned me :p. Whichever it was, thank you.

    My order from [email protected] finally shipped.  Which means I'll have the stash soon and will immediately send off.  I can't wait!

    Not saying when mine was or will be posted - all these tiny clues might add up to ruin the secrecy! :)

    ^    I was thinking the same thing, although it is fun to see how everybody is getting on.

     I may or may not have received all the bits I want to get my gift together... I may or may not have sent it off by now .

    Was having some problems getting ideas for mine but suddenly realised I have the solution in my collection! Still got things to sort but feeling much happier now.

    Semi original item made, contents wrapped and package has postage.  Secret Santa Going out tomorrow and really really hope they like it.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,941
    Yeah, do we reveal who we are in the present or something? Because I've been in some where you're supposed to and some where it's supposed to be anonymous.

    Even last year, for example, I revealed who I was on a note with the present, but my gifter never revealed who they were.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,358
    @plasmodium - it think it's a bit more informal here, last year I asked the person who sent me a gift to reveal themselves but wasn't asked by the person I sent a gift to so I kept shtum.
  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,964
    We all know what secret means, right? :)

    Fair enough - if I don't reveal who I am, then that leaves them free to ask if they're curious or not if they're not.

    Well, theoretically, but according to post-structuralist thought, we all assign differing meanings to words...or perhaps now that I'm done with essays I should just say that by 'secret' you might mean 'always completely secret forever', whereas I might mean 'secret until the gift is opened' - the nature of the giftee just as the nature of the gift...hence why I asked. :-)

    Well, it's no secret that the best thing about secrets is secretly telling someone your secret, thereby secretly adding another secret to your secret collection of secrets! Secretly.

    got mine today! wow. what a haul. my santa nailed it. didn't mean to "open" the presents, but they weren't wrapped - just opened the package. my bad! i wouldn't mind if he or she owned up to the gift so i can publicly acknowledge the generosity. THANK YOU!

    anyone who knows me personally knows that i am a HORRIBLE secret keeper. add that to the nature of the gift that i've made, and the recipient of mine will know who i am IRL, but not perhaps my screen name here.

    based on the value of what i've received i feel that i should up the ante on what i'm sending out as well. seems only fair.

    Just wanted to mention that I've received my Secret Santa gift - it was really nice of the person to put "Brickset" on the box because I'm getting a lot of parcels at the moment!  Have not opened the box in case it's not wrapped :)

    Mine is going to be posted next week, as close to Christmas as I could manage!

    Received mine earlier - didn't realise it was a secret santa parcel until opening it, but thankfully everything else inside is wrapped :)

    Thanks, whoever sent it... Looking forward to the big day already :)

    Nothing here yet :'(.

    I did get a different Secret Santa gift from somewhere else however. The excellent #70173.

    I got my present and I too opened it not realizing what it was.  It wasn't wrapped so I got my present early!  LOVE it!!  I do know their IRL name since it's listed on the package, but not their user name. 
    I ordered my gift forever ago and I'm still waiting.  It'll be a close call to get it in the mail on time.  Someone might get their secret Santa a day late...

    i don't know that a photo is needed,
    you all know what sealed boxed sets look like. :)
    but picture this: FOUR NEW SETS! 
    and they are as follows:

    city is my fave theme....
    http://brickset.com/sets/60084-1/Racing-Bike-Transporter
    http://brickset.com/sets/60090-1/Deep-Sea-Scuba-Scooter
    http://brickset.com/sets/60091-1/Deep-Sea-Starter-Set

    and the holiday season appropriately OOP...
    http://brickset.com/sets/40093-1/Snowman

    whooop!! 
    this package made my week.

    sadly, my recipient didn't make his/her wanted (or owned by) list public, so i can't check to see if the set i'm sending will be a duplicate. but i think it's one that no one would mind having an extra. and the rest of the gift/packing material is handmade by me, so i'm pretty sure that won't be a repeat. :)

    based on my post above, my secret santa revealed their identity to me. but in the interest of the whole secret thing, i'll keep that info to myself. you know who you are! you rock!

    So, my Secret Santa box arrived today.  Much to my amazement / delight, it contains FOUR presents!  Wow!  I've had a sneaky rattle and some of the boxes sound like they have more bricks than I'd normally expect for sets that size, so it'll be interesting to see what they are!  As requested by my BSS, please see attached photo:



    I have to admit, I'm really excited about opening them - it's the first time since I was a kid that I'll be receiving LEGO that I *don't* know what it is!!  I'll be sure to pop some photos on here when they have been unwrapped!  So, a really BIG thank you to my Secret Santa; the presents are very much appreciated.

    It's so nice seeing everybody receiving their boxes full of goodies! I'm just hoping that my secret santa doesn't send my gift really close to the last posting dates, because I don't know if I'm going to be in to receive the parcel on the last posting day before Christmas. And I can't think of anything worse than missing a parcel full of plastic bricks being delivered on the 24th... oh the horror! :oP

    Also @rancorbait - could you please answer the PM regarding SS that I sent you the other day? If you don't mind of course ;o)

    Got my secret Santa today and will be posting mine out on Monday when I have done the wrapping. Mine came in an Amazon box but haven't opened it yet as I am not sure if the presents inside are wrapped or not.

  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,521
    Whilst its secret santa, you kind of want your recipient to open it now, so they don't buy or swap stuff before christmas and end up with the same things twice.

    Apparently my secret santa was at Brick 2015 today...whoever it was somehow achieved a sneaky handover while I wasn't looking.

    ^oh no, you should wait till Christmas surely! (Well the 24th since I'm on the continent that's when we open our presents.


    Like @Renegade007cjh I am also curious because this is going to be the only present under our tree that I did not buy or wrap myself... Unless my husband has some extra gifts... Maybe I should post that going in the public part of the forum since he is a bit of a lurker on there....

    I am even buying a present for my great-aunt from my mother-in-law and a present from my  mother in law to my great aunt....  (They can't get around very well and the interweb is a mystery. Also, they have no clue what the other person likes. Luckily, I enjoy (online) shopping and I did start buying Christmas presents in October...

    Aargh! Part of it still hasn't shown up - I'm going to have to cut my losses and send it partially if it's to arrive before Christmas. I promise I'll send on the other part when it arrives!

    You seem to bring up Galidor a lot. If anyone is wondering what @SumoLego wants for his Secret Santa...

    @plasmodium - I possess a set of Galidor figures, thank you.  I don't have the vehicles... but that would violate the $20.00 parameter.

    Don't nobody get any ideas!

    Please stick to my 'want' list of an Eiffel Tower, or Grand Carousel.  Also looking for the Creator VW Beetle...
