Let gifts flow, let gifts flow, let gifts flow.

Are the thank yous somewhere else?? <worries>

If not, thank you so much to both Santa A 6049 and Santa C 6049. Both gifts came today, first a royal mail parcel and secondly the royal mail post around 20 minutes later fgrin

Thank you SO much for your generosity and kindness.

Santa A we read your card first and so are going to save the parcel for xmas eve as indicated. If dd1 doesn't combust that is, she is walking around with it tucked under her arm!

santa C thank you so much for the lovely voucher. I will definitely use it wisely.

Happy Christmas both fgrin fgrin and many happy returns to you

A massive thank you to my Secret Santa Xmas2015Santa?3161 (parcel didn't give your Santa nickname)

We will open the gifts on Christmas Day but I accidently opened the envelope so have ruined the surprise blush Your choices are perfect flowers

Wishing you a lovely Christmas and a super New Year santa

Oh how lovely for this year's participants fsmile.

But don't you usually 'sticky' this thread, Sandy?

Thank you so much for nominating me I was really touched. The present won't be opened until Christmas but I am sure it will be lovely.

To Santa 7357 and your family

I'm choked actually. Dust in my eyes obviously. Thank you so much for your generosity, you have bought a smile to my face and they have been very lacking lately. Your gift is very much appreciated and I promise will go to very good use. Your note was perfect as so very very true. Especially the bit about knickers falling apart which made me laugh through the dust in my eyes. I won't forget this moment, that in a time of seeming non stop hellish rubbish being thrown my way, that a stranger made the difference that you have and made me smile and cry in one act of anonymous kindness

I hope you have a great Christmas. Thank you again from all my family.

It's a bit dusty in here isn't it?

<wipes tears>

Xmas2015MN9817 Mon 07-Dec-15 11:31:56

To Santa?9817 (not sure if there should be some letter or other there but your initials were C. V. so hopefully you'll see this and know it's for you) thank you so much for the beautiful chocolates they're too pretty to eat fgrin and voucher. I have hidden the chocolates away for the moment - will save them for a treat over the holidays with the kids and use the voucher towards something extra for them each.

And to SantaC9817 thank you very much as well. I rarely venture into M&S but am going to take the voucher into town with me tomorrow and have a look around for something we can share over the school holidays.

Your parcels actually arrived on Thursday/Friday & left me a bit red eyed at your generosity. I was just a bit slow on the uptake fblush and couldn't work out how to nc or find this thread using the mobile site.

coffee, it's very dusty in here indeed fwink

Xmas2015SantaC6049 Mon 07-Dec-15 11:38:26

I'm glad it arrived safely - and quickly! Have a lovely Christmas smile

Xmas2015SantaC6049 Mon 07-Dec-15 11:39:38

P.S. I'm really Xmas2015SantaA6049 but for some reason I received 7 emails from MN all with different usernames and this is the one that works. Someone else sent the voucher!

Xmas2015MN2904 Mon 07-Dec-15 12:54:18

To Xmas2015SantaA2904
Dear Xmas2015Santaa2904 thank you so much for my lovely gift. You made a dull day seem very colourful.

Xmas2015MN4194 Mon 07-Dec-15 12:57:52

To Xmas2015SantaC4194
Thank you so very much to my lovely MN'er who sent my SS to me. The Chocolates are lovely and I just adore chocolate. ALL chocolate. So thank you so much for your kindess and for thinking of me. Please appreciate that I am truly grateful for your kindness.

Thank you so much for my gift - I am going to open it on Christmas Day (if I can be patient that long).

I hope you and all your loved ones have a wonderful Christmas!

Xmas2015MN2478 Mon 07-Dec-15 18:49:27

Xmas2015SantaA2478 thank you so much for my gift. It really is appreciated. And thank you for the tip too
It brought a much needed smile to my face, so I would like to thank you, again, and wish you and your family a very merry Christmas

Xmas2015MN4521 Mon 07-Dec-15 19:05:11

To SantaA4521 Thank you thank you thank you! I can't believe that not only did a complete stranger nominate me for a Secret Santa gift, but that another complete stranger spent their hard earned cash on buying me one!

You are so kind, and I really really appreciate it.

Have a bloody brilliant Christmas!

Xmas2015MN4521 Mon 07-Dec-15 19:06:26

blush Oops. How the hell did I post that 8 times? confused

ImperialBlether Mon 07-Dec-15 19:06:36

Oh I want to know what people got!

Xmas2015MN3161 Mon 07-Dec-15 19:11:49

Imperial this is from the MN email:

While it's lovely if you'd like to add a thank you to the Secret Santa Thank You Thread, we've found in the past that giving lots of detail about exactly what you've been sent can lead to comparisons between donors, and folk feeling guilty for not sending something bigger or costlier! So if the parcel you get is really super-generous, it would be great if you could thank the donor without going into explicit details about what you received. Hope you can see where we're coming from!

ImperialBlether Mon 07-Dec-15 19:21:09

Ohhhh okay, that makes sense! People are very generous, whatever they're sending. It's a lovely thing to do.
