Here you can tell what gifts you received and who you think you got them from. Please don't tell if you were the one. When everyone has received their gifts I will post a list to tell who your secret santa was.

I already got my Christmas pressies!!!!

The first one I got on monday and the other two arrived yesterday.

I got The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells , The Invisible Man  by H.G. Wells and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells .

I got other editions than the ones shown, but they weren't in the list. I got the Dover Thrift editions which has very nice covers.

Thank you Secret Santa!

I am not going to gues who my secret santa is since I am the only one who knows who it is. I would like to ask my secret santa not to reveal their identity untill everyone has got their presents and had a chance to guess.

Amazing gifts people. Mine arrived too.

The Hobbit - Yay. My copy seems to have gone awol so I needed a new one. The bookmark inside it was a R20 off for exclusives online, so I need to do some more shopping.
A new red journal. - Yay, I love journals and red is one of my favourite colours.
A couple of chocolates. - I love chocolate, but how it survived the post I don't know.
But the bestest was:
www.thegroovygiraffe.com/gladiators-a...
It is a pop up colosseum with a story book, map of the colosseum, cards of each gladiator and a board game on the cover. It is incredible!

Thank you loads, secret Santa.

I know it is someone from JHB, but not sure which one.

I have had contact with your secret santa and they have sent you something and are now in the process of locating where it is. So sit tight it will come your way.

Hi everyone it has been brought to my attention that my thank you to my Secret Santa has somehow gotten lost.

As I have already mentioned to Barbra and Niecole (my secret santa) I am absolutely squirming with embarrassment!! I promise this was computer error and not ungratefulness. It also hasn't helped that I have been so inactive lately, maybe I would have spotted my error be now. . .

But more importantly, THANK YOU NIECOLE!!

I read The Fault in Our Stars over the weekend and it was by far one of the best books I have read in ages. It was incredibly moving and affected me on a very personal level.

So thank you not only for the book but for the whole experience!!

And again SO sorry!!!!!

Just for everyone who hasn't figured out who was secret santa to whom here is the big reveal:

Barbara was secret santa to Niecole
Niecole was secret santa to Lauren F
Lauren F was secret santa to Varla Fiona
Varla Fiona was secret santa to Lu
Lu was secret santa to Angelique
Angelique was secret santa to Jennifer

Thanks to all the santa's for the great gifts!
