    Christmas and the following couple weeks have been manic so apologies for belated thank you to Santa.

    Parcels kept coming through my letterbox all week! I received...

    A nosehair trimmer (how did you know??)
    Nanobot robot thingy (which will sit on my desk)
    Gears of War medic kit (themed plasters!)
    Lots and lots of chocolate (eaten)
    A Christmas card*

    *I can't read the name on the card though as it's a bit smudged! boo can you do some digging so I know who to construct a shrine (colon snake) too? Unless they want to out themselves :-)

    Thanks!

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas & New Year, and many thanks again to boo for organising.

    I also love whoever else sent a parcel made out to Colon 'Name' Snake. And to my everlasting shame my Santee was spoiler - he was a very naughty boy.

    As Secret Santa organiser, I took an oath of secrecy, and if I divulge any Santa's details I run the risk of being strung up by the baubles.

    If your Santa wishes to identify him / her / itself, then that's fine, but I'm not saying nuffink!

    I was hoping they'd make it without a proper name as an adressee.
    Apologies for the complete lack of wrapping paper. play.com were being dicks, not sending to Belgium and they don't have a gift wrap option when you buy.

    Just thought of checking this thread because I found a folder somewhere waaaay hidden at the bottom of my bookmarks called "EGSS". Apparently I found a bunch of cool gift options on Firebox many moons ago and forgot all about it. Maybe for 2013. :-)

    @Salaman

    Thank you! No worries about the lack of wrapping paper - like a small child I find the envelopes as exciting as the gifts themselves.

    The main thing is that when the cute secretary next gives herself a paper cut I can save the day with my Gears of War medkit.

    Now why would you want to make yourself unbeddable?

    After waiting nearly a month and still no sign of my Secret Santa gift, I was just about to console myself and buy my own Colon Snake.

    But upon returning home from work last night, I discovered that I'd received a parcel. Once the kids were in bed, I fell upon the parcel like a child on Christmas Day. Opening the lid, I discovered a note from Mr EG Secret Santa himself, Boo, and some lovely wrapped Christmas pressies :D

    To my delight I received
    - a Technic Lego set - the very same one Boo has been doing his stop motion builds with
    boo wrote:
    My second stop motion epic!
    - a Pacman oven mitt
    - book on juggling and some juggling balls

    A massive thanks to Boo, who really didn't need to do this, but I am genuinely touched and thrilled with me belated presents!

    Yay! Great stuff :) You realise we expect videos of your new mad juggling skills, intercut with some stop motion of your own. Get to it!

    \o/

    I know F_P's Santa got his gifts in the post, but I guess some Post Office temp worker ended u-p with that particular parcel.
    Hope it was the used Colon Snake off ebay.

    Anyway - all's well that ends well.

    I hereby declare EG Secret Santa 2012 closed!

    In January!

    Who'da thunk it!

    Are you kidding?
    It's going to take all our combined efforts to stop Kalel from winning everything.

    Again.

    ;o)

    You'd have to narrow it down to geeky gamer chicks maybe?
    Although the chocolate may have swayed a fair few non gamer girls but you scoffed those apparently. Trimming the nose hairs probably will increase your chances of getting laid though, so it might still work.
