    I launched mine today.

    Enough days to be sure it'll be there on time but not too soon to keep the recipient awake all night dreaming about the mysterious box from Santa.

    Temptation on its way!!! Happy Christmas!!!

    Hey - it wasn't wrapped. Not my fault, but the fault of Santa's very lazy elves.

    Excellent, excellent...

    Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

    Also, I would point out that I didn't send Caligari a parcel addressed to Colin 'Caligari' Snake. His gifteriser let me know that the parcel was in the post, and happened to mention that that's how it had been addressed.

    Which was a stroke of genius if you ask me.

    My wife answered the door to the postie the other day, when my SS gift was delivered.

    "Er, is there someone called 'Boo' here?"
    "Yes, that would be my husband."
    /cue much eye rolling from wife and quizzical looks from aforementioned post lady
    "Right..."
    "It's his online ID. As a result, I'm Mrs Boo."
    "Okay..."
    /post lady makes swift exit

    Do people open their SS gifts on Christmas day when the kids are around?

    Don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to take the risk...

    (colon snakes etc)

    Hey, at Christmas time my door is a bombarded with Amazon and eBay parcels, which I then frantically rip open and wrap.

    I am NOT taking the blame for this premature opening of goodies. It took me a good few minutes to realise that it wasn't something that I'd ordered for somebody else.

    @boo

    Got mine through - looks too small to be a colon snake but I live in hope.

    Sniffing only tells you if it is bought second hand.

    Are you guys still going to do the unwrapping video for Youtube? :-)

    I plan on taping the unwrapping & posting it up on that youtube channel.

    benny, don't go all caligari on is now!

    I'm starting to despair for my own SS gifts. :-(
    I found some cool little things online (UK site) and the fuckers won't send to Belgium but everything else I looked at in local shops seems a bit boring.
    Maybe I need to just ship them directly to my santee. But then it's not wrapped ... and it will probably include the invoice which is a bit crap.
    *sigh*

    @Salaman

    With any luck I should be able to keep it real!

    However I promise nothing.

    Mine has come direct from Zavvi I think so don't feel bad about not wrapping stuff! its the thought that counts! and its greatly appreciated.

    Excellent work all round, people!

    I'll update the original post tonight, and add a category for 'Those forumites whose gift, I have been informed, is in the postal system.'

    I am unfortunately not going to get mine in the post until Monday... However I will pay for super fast postage!

    Everyone knows Jack Thompson - but how did he become the game-blaming activist he is today? Read Part One of my new mini-series!

    @Salaman When you're buying online, the 'mark as gift' function removes the packing slip and invoice from the item

    So what's the deal with this Youtube business? Ibenam set up a private channel, but I've no idea how that works.

    Also, with no mobile phone, I'll have to video it on a camcorder, import the footage into iMovie on the Mac, then find some way of exporting it to the intarweb...

    It all sounds like a lot of work!

    Happy to pre view ;) and upload the videos to the channel with some complimentary special effects!

    I guess everyone can upload their video to a hosting website and pm me the links to download.

    Anyone know any good hosting sites?

    Would suggest keeping the colon snake unwrapping to around 2 minutes a piece.
