How is all your shopping coming along ? Are you nearly ready to send your gift out ?

As there are more postal strikes planned for late this/early next week, I think it might be a good idea to start sending out our pressies

http://bestsmileys.com/christmas1/16.gif

Don't forget to wrap your gift with a message 'from your friend at the DIS' or similar (as it is a secret), and also please reply to this thread when you have sent or received your gift

Please, please, please post a photo of your gift when it arrives, as we all love to see what everyone receives

I hope you all enjoy taking part in this exchange, and that you receive a lovely present :santa:

Just wondering... at the risk of sounding dim again (!), seeing as you organise these exchanges, how do you determine who your secret sender is without finding out?

LOL, no you're not dim hun. I send my DD Kerry (who is a member of the DIS), the PM that I send out to everyone, and she chooses someone from the list, and unless my gift arrives very late and I have to chase people up, then it's a surprise for me too :santa:

Well mine arrived today and I was soooo excited to see the pure size of the box alone - who says size doesn't matter ;)

I received a massive Disney Store box

http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o140/JackieRobson/P1010287.jpg

Inside was a Jack Skellington snow globe and 2 beautiful scarves full of other goodies

http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o140/JackieRobson/P1010288.jpg

Inside the scarves was a bundle of other pressies

A beautiful silver star with mickey beads from WDW
A set of Pirate mickey ears to hang on the tree from WDW
A Santa Mickey hat to hang on the tree from WDW
A beautiful Magic Kingdom ornament to hang on the tree

In the other scarf I found a mass of lovely Lush products

Want to believe - bath melt
Lil Lush Pud - bath ballistic
Mr Butterball - bath ballistic
Christmas Eve - bubble bar
Star - bath melt
Satsumo Santa - bath ballistic

Just to let my sender know that I will be on leave from 9th to 15th November. I am not actually going anywhere, but I won't be at work. Unfortunately Royal Mail is refusing to deliver packages to our apartment complex and I don't drive to pick it up from the sorting office. Hence all my packages go to my work address. Our secretary will look after any packages that arrive at the office while I am away.

Nooo they make me go into the office on Tuesdays!!! I mean, don't they know I have important postie stalking duties to attend to?! I'm still living in hope, sometimes a postie with a van comes around later on than the normal 'on foot' postie - I like the one with the van better - he brings parcels - the normal one brings me bills :scared1::rotfl:

I'm still a little concerned that my recipient hasn't said they have received their gift yet. There is a signature online to prove that the parcel's been signed for but I can't make it out, so I hope it's reached the correct person. :confused3

Could I just request that if you have received your gift, please say you've got it and post a pic. Thanks. :)
