Secret Santa Mr. Linky

A final update: As far as I know, there are 5 people who have yet to receive their gifts. I know some of you are worried that the packages you sent might have been lost, but sometimes, with the business of the holiday season, things end up taking like a month to arrive. I decided to keep this post a sticky until the 6th of January. After that, you do not need to give up hope. More likely than not, the packages will still arrive. But if you wish to do so, you can contact your "Santee" directly and let them know what happened. If you'd rather wait longer before doing so, that is fine too. I really do hope that all of the packages that are missing end up turning up.



So, it is now the 7th of December, and I know that at least 3 people already got their Secret Santa packages. It is likely that some of you will only receive yours after Christmas, especially if your Secret Santas live overseas, but what matters is that they do arrive eventually. But anyway, I thought I'd put a Mr. Linky up so that those of you who write a post in your blogs about what you got can link to it here. I hope everyone is having fun with the Christmas Exchange, and again, thank you to all the participants!

    Rhinoa, I saw your post, and don't worry about it! These things happen, and you're not the only one who was a little late.

  19. Oh, still. :( Still my recipient (santee?) doesn't seem to have received what I sent. Well, we knew it would take a long time, being so far away.

  20. I am hoping (fingers crossed) my person did receive the gift I sent long before Christmas, but just didn't have the time to post. Or perhaps the person was away for the holidays, which would be fine too. I just hope my person got the gift.

  21. Dewey, Wendy, you are not alone. There are 5 people who, as far as I know, have not yet received their gifts. In one case, the package was sent from the USA to Canada, so it didn't have a very long way to go.

    Hopefully these are just delays due to customs or the holiday business or something. I really hope that none of the packages turn out to have been lost.

    Maybe we can wait a few more days, until the 6th of January or so, and then people can contact their "santees" directly to try and find out what happened?

    Perhaps, like Wendy said, in some cases people are away for the holidays and will find their gifts waiting for them when they get back?

  22. If the person sending to Canada sent food, it might have been confiscated. I sent a friend some chocolate to Canada once, and he never received it. He thought it was something to do with sending food products across the border.

  23. Unlike the rest of you, I finally picked up my gift from the post office earlier. Hahaha! They sent me a stub telling me I've a parcel at the Bureau of Customs so I should go there and pick it up :)

    Heartfelt thanks to my Santa, Dewey! I love my loot! As in I.Love.My.Loot. Thank you so much!

    Thanks Nymeth for this great idea.

    And hoping all of you reading this had a holiday filled with joy!

  24. I sent my goody package out about a month ago to Renay at The Book Ninja. I hope that she received it ok!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ooh, Lightheaded finally got hers!

    April, I have Renay's email, so I could ask her for you if you want.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I sent the gift to my person's work address since that's the one she listed, but still no word on whether she received it. :-(

  27. Dewey, I went to Renay's blog and sent her an email from that page - it's a gmail addy, is that the same on that you have? I have not heard back from her yet, but just sent it yesterday afternoon. I had hubby mail it - should have had him get a confirmation number. Thanks so much for offering to email Renay. I greatly appreciate it!

  28. Argh, sorry for the neglect, everyone. Basically some random keys on my laptop's keyboard stopped working last night, including the space, for absolutely NO reason...so although I was reading I couldn't type. I had to go out and buy a USB keyboard today :\

    Literary Feline: I will e-mail them and find out. In fact, I will e-mail all the people I haven't heard from, just to be safe.

    Dewey: Thanks for helping!

    April: I hope you hear from Renay soon...hopefully the package arrived safely.

    Bit by bit the missing packages are starting to turn up...so hopefully that will happen with these too.
