I want to brag on theturkscribe @theturkscribe for being an awesome (and super speedy!) Secret Santa!! :santa:
My kids and I are in LOVE with our light up moon and we'll take a picture to share soon! πŸŒ• ❀

A reminder to everyone: as we all organize our gifts, don't forget to mark them as sent/received on your Elfster account. πŸŽ„ 🎁

Considering the reports of already seeing what the gifts are, I guess we aren't supposed to wrap the gifts? I thought part of the idea was wrap the gift and have it opened on Christmas day.

I know I'm planning to have my gifts drop-shipped from amazon to my recipient if I can figure out how to ship-to-someone-else works on the site, but I'm trying to figure out if I should pay for the gift wrapping of those gifts or just have them sent without wrapping.

so I can sleep better knowing you don't have the same freak interests and hobbies I do? hahahahahaha.
I've been wondering about that since you mentioned you and your gift recipient have the same interests.

The spirit of the holiday is the important thing. Don't pay more for gift wrap. And I tend to open mine when I receive it. Actual Christmas in my household is for the little one. You should have the address of your gift person. I just add the person's address to my Amazon addresses if I'm sending from there, or wherever I'm sending from. It has been easier for me to have something sent from a site than to fight with trying to get something mailed myself.

Just a reminder to folks, don't forget to mark your gifts as sent and received on the Elfster site. And you're welcome to mention it here in this thread, as well, when you get your gifts! :santa: :tmnt:

ristiekay @ristiekay I received my Secret Santa gift today and thank you for the Voyager spacecraft and Golden Gate bridge Metal Earth models! It should be a fun winter to build and enjoy them. Merry Christmas.
Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. Have a Merry Christmas! :)

Hi guys, this is just a reminder to mark your gifts as received and sent on Elfster and let us know in here too, if you want, so we know what's going on. Time is ticking down to the wire now! I'm super happy for those of you who have received your gifts already!!! ❀

Oh, I forgot to say in the other post that part of the importance of marking received or sent is because sometimes packages get lost in transit and it's important that we know whether to expect something or have someone else expect something! This time of year is crazy for postal deliveries.
