<turns on megaphone> LISTEN UP PEOPLE!

There's a wee techie glitch on the mail shoot to donors. BUT DON'T PANIC. All is good.

Every donor has received two duplicate mails. They are completely the same, even though you may have spotted that the MN donor number/code is ever-so-slightly different on each one. But this is of no consequence, the important bit it is the gift details, which are the same in each mail. You obviously don't have to send the same thing out twice.

Here's what you do. Login to MN and click on your Secret Santa button in the bottom left of any MN page, which says 'Have you sent your Secret Santa gift?'. Here you will see the details of your match or matches if you've donated more than one gift.

On your address label, there will be a line saying 'donated by' - followed by a number. This is your donor number/code.

Proceed as directed.
Massive apologies for any confusion or panic.<throws megaphone into the corner> <wipes brow>

Ho ho ho! I hope this type of post prior to receiving is allowed... This is a message for my recipient, I hope you get your gift in the next couple of days, you should have the MN code thing on it, so you will know it is from MN! When I ordered it, the site was in a language different to my own, so I couldn't find the bit to put a gift message in. I hope it didn't seem impersonal for this reason... I just wanted to wish you and your family the very happiest of Christmasses. Lots of love, Santa.

I won't have time to post mine until the weekend. Do I have to have the flag at the bottom of my screen that says 'have you sent your secret santa gift?' until then? It's rather annoying and won't disappear. I've bookmarked the page and won't forget to confirm when it's sent, honest smile

Amazon should be sending the presents over the next few days.

I'm sorry, they didn't offer giftwrap options on some items. I hope that it's not a nuisance to do it.

Best wishes

Your present is on it's way, it should be there by 3 Dec (probably best you have it now tbh) i'll post your sons tomorrow. I hope it's not too presumptive, but i've included some handy hints I found in your son's present.

I've also not wrapped it so you can see what it is

Xmas2014SantaA8997 Thu 27-Nov-14 12:12:28


A gift for your boys is on it's way - I hope it arrives ok as I've sent it directly to you. There wasn't a field to add my Secret Santa name but I don't suppose it matters. I didn't opt for gift wrap as if it was me I would want to see what had been sent before the DC!
Hope you all have a very merry Christmas! fgrin

Dh said I wasn't clear.

Deffo open it when you get it. You will need to.

I really hope you see this comment now

Just a message to my recipient - there wasn't an option to include a gift message on the site I used, so I'm saying Happy Christmas this way!

Thank you for my box of chocolates. They look very special and yummy but I'm going to be good and save them for Xmas so haven't sampled them yet. They're very much appreciated. Hope you have a lovely Xmas. Xx
