#1203 here, I finally got my gift from #3469!

Where to start...I love everything here!

I saw the candy first and got excited already, I had never tried popin cookin before and I’m glad to give it a shot. The milk candy is also pretty good, reminds me of Nips (popped one in my mouth while I was waiting for a new thread lol) Absolutely adore the socks, love Gudetama and I’m a fiend for anything strawberry! The duck stationery is adorable, I’m torn between using it right away or hiding it for special occasions. I love my little Cinnamoroll pouch also, he’s so squishy

I didn’t expect the keychains at all, they’re a welcome addition to my collection. The cherry blossom one is gorgeous though, I’ll have to add it to my car keys! I really like the lashes and blush as well. I never tried Dolly Wink before and I don’t have a color like that, I might put it on later today. And the necklace? Beautiful! I can see this being used a lot in my coords, along with the bolero (I was actually looking to get another long-sleeved pink one, perfect timing)

Thank you once again for everything, it makes the wait worth it!

Hi, 8008, in short - YOUR GIFT IS AMAZING!
I got it few days ago but putting my feelings into words took some time.

Firstly your (already mine XD) headdresses - I'm so touched that you decided to make them by your own hands. Yeah, as you said I'll probably add an extra row of eyelet lace but the wine headdress looks great as it is, I adore it!
Your main gift is to die for, I didn't even think this skirt is so beautiful! Hope the experience of hunting for it will help you on getting your dream dress one day.
Then the bag. I don't mind little misperfections (and it took a while to find that one repaired place) and for me it's another one main gift, exactly what I wanted^.^
AATP headbow, some tasty sweets and lace for my craft projects - like it all:)

And all this little quest with tiny notes on every gift was so emotional... I want to say a huge warm thank you, dear Santa!
p.s. I'm a bit shy and bad at posing to post my outfits on social media but maybe with the help of your words I'll finally do it;)
50-75 tier
>>
>>10535735
wow those handmade headdresses are really cute. how sweet

I love seeing the handmade gifts people have been sending in some of these, like embroidered miku or the drawn coordinates. It shows a lot of care and heart.

thanks for the sweets! 1203, you're a real lifesaver
>>
>>10535735
I'm so happy you liked everything! It was torture to see the tracking move so slowly, but I got my gift in January last year and I know it feels just as good. This explanation that you thought all these days ever since it arrived on how to put your feelings into words makes me feel all fuzzy. It was worth the wait; I'm just sitting here writing and smiling!

It means a lot that you mention the headdresses first actually. When you wished for "headdress, one of these three colours" I got such a kick from deciding "I'll make all three!", hahah! The black one sort of disappeared in the image, but the most important thing is that you have it to use. If you add more lace I suppose you ought not open it up. I cut towards the seam all around to make it fold right-side-out better, and it might be hard to close it cleanly again. Just take a lace you like and stitch it right on. Then it will be a little collaboration of my handicraft and yours <3

It makes me happy that all my little notes were legible and that it felt like a quest. That makes me proud in hindsight, because who doesn't like a good little adventure?
When you start posting on social media I hope I'll manage to follow you! Did I add my social media to the card? I don't think I ever did, but maybe we'll hear from each other in this secret santa next year. Merry late Christmas, and best of luck with your 2021!

Giftee please post my card if you haven’t gotten it already
Santa please send me my card if you haven’t already
Please and thank you

I can't believe that we're about 2 weeks away from the grinch check and some people haven't even sent out their cards or gifts yet

#5613, Part two of your gift is coming! Should arrive by Monday

>>10535566
Much thanks to you! Guess USPS just needed a little kick in the ass to get it moving lol

>>10535585
I forget what the package said (and I just threw out the garbage fml), maybe my Santa can answer?

>>10535852
You’re very welcome! I guess my excessive packaging worked well lmao

>>10535735

I'm apart of another SS and both my santa and THE MOD have ghosted me. I hate this
>>
>>10536199
>>10536199
Well if it makes you fell better the organizers for this ss have ghosted me too . Moral of the story ladies?Don't do ss
>>
Isn’t the point of the card exchange to write about lolita and your interests? I’m sorry but if you just wrote “merry christmas”, I’m recycling this generic card.
>>
>>10536293
Yeah well you probably deserve it
>>
>>10536295
Doesn't matter if they deserve it or not. Its kind of their job . Don't host something if you can't put your salt aside.
>>
>>10536294
it's a christmas card exchange not penpals.
>>
>>10536293
I’ve depended a lot on the organisers this year due to some really unfortunate personal circumstances, and they’ve been really kind and responsive to me. Maybe try sending them a follow-up?

>>10536295
Weak bait.

>>10536303
Sorry you write shitty cards
>>
>>10536294
Why do people join this SS, isn’t that shit a given?

>>10536294
If you wanted people to write you a letter, you should have put it in your form, nobody is obligated to write you anything other than Merry Christmas.
>>
>>10536293
>>10536297
Sorry if you feel you have been ghosted. I have just replied to all emails I have received in the past few days, so you should have your reply!

If not please email again as I may not have got it?

Anyone else emailing in, SaltySnowball is having covid related issues and I have been packing my house as I am moving 7 hours away tomorrow, so life is extra stressful for both of us right now and we will take a while to reply to emails.. but I will try reply in the next few days if I cant get back to you immediately!

I check the thread when I can, so if you have emailed and I haven't responded please let me know here!

#6800, thank you so much! I finally got your card and I had to laugh because we were each other's card matches. Seeing that you made a chinstrap penguin adoption on my behalf brought tears to my eyes, it was super thoughtful and I'm going to frame it. Your danger noodle is so cute! I had a red tail for a while so it brought back sweet memories. The stickers were super gorgeous and your choice of card and death sticker were greatly appreciated. I really appreciated the sweet card and a look into what you do for a living! I really do not care for the desert up living here for most of my life but cacti and their flowers are something I will always appreciate. Thank you so much for the amazing card.
>>
>>10536400
Bruh, they got you a penguin? That's amazing

>>10536179
Santa here. I was quite stressed during the first half of December when I sent them off so I never snapped a picture. If we're to see them any closer it will be pics from my giftee.

AA from CA (sorry I didn't see your number anywhere!)

I absolutely love the card and all the cute little extras! It's a lot more than I was expecting.
Funnily enough, Boo just pokes my cute spot so that was an adorable little addition!
The card is beautiful, wow. I feel honoured you thought I was worth giving it to! Don't worry that it's dented, it's still so gorgeous~
I'd love to write back if possible, thank you so much again card Santa!
>>
>>10534203
I'm glad you like the present! I went overboard but I couldn't resist creating a gift themed around 'pink princess' haha, since that's the kind of thing I love too!
Hope you get good use out of the clothes and enjoy the yummy snacks~
>>
>>10536711
I’m so glad you liked it! Sorry, forgetting to add my number seems to be a trend recently haha. Feel free to write back if you want, I’d love to hear from you!

If this is truly the case, please send an email to myself and/or Party Shark. I just checked my inbox and everything seems to be taken care of, though of course emails can have sending issues, can get stuck in your outbox, etc. Many of my emails at the start of the exchange were getting turned out by Gmail’s spam filter. We don’t want anyone to feel like they are being ghosted.

As >>10536360 mentioned, we are both a bit busy right now, but are still checking the thread and inboxes!

Grinch check is still set for January 31st, and anyone who has not provided a tracking number or proof of sending their gift will be considered a grinch.

A few people have reached out to us regarding both being a helper for grinch squad and to ask if their received gift would be eligible. Once we determine how many people have been grinched, we will make a list of those needing gifts.
It may be the case that we ask for more volunteers for Grinch Squad, but we will see.

Just want to add that there are a few people in the thread out to stir the shitpot who are impersonating other anons or who are not participants. Nothing unusual or different than other years though. Don’t take bait and try to be kind to each other.

Finally, I’ll be publishing some graphs and wordclouds, since those are often popular and provide insight into this year. Please look forward to those soon.
>>
Hey Santa, 5676 here! I don’t know if you noticed but it looks like the tracking for your package FINALLY started moving and should be here soon!
>>
>>10536400
Oh I’m glad it made it!!! I opened your card/saw the address just a few days after I sent yours out myself, but didn’t want to spoil the surprise in the thread! I’m so glad you liked the penguin :) And when I read your card I was glad I included a photo of my own redtail; I hope she can remind you of some pleasant times with the one you had. I’m glad we got to be matched mutually for this event!

This is 9670, and 3977, I finally got your gift today and I’m absolutely blown away! Everything is so cute and honestly it’s all perfect; you got my tastes so well. The Nile Perch pieces are so cute and I’m so excited to wear them! I’ve wanted something with one of their cat prints for ages so I’m really happy. I’ve almost bought myself the Pop Parade clips so many times and I’m so glad I didn’t! The cat one just the cutest thing and I know I’ll wear it a ton. The Spank! buttons and jewelry are perfect, too! I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of the LF top, since I have it in mint and wear it all the time. Also the cherry necklace is precious! And when I pulled out the ManiaQ tights I actually gasped; they’re absolutely gorgeous and I’m so happy to have them. Thank you so much for everything, it was well worth the three weeks or so the package spent in USPS limbo!
I’m curious about your coordinates, since you said we have similar taste!
$100+ tier
>>
>>10537341
I'm so happy you love it. It was hard not to keep the spank! pins for myself. It was great find.

5676 here! 5059, I got your gift today and wow, everything is so perfect that I’m absolutely floored!! Thank you for all the pairs of socks, they’re exactly what I need! I can’t wait to pair them with my dresses. The wristcuffs and enamel pins will fit in with their respective collections seamlessly. Also, this sheep plush? I would die for him. I don’t know how you managed to choose such a perfect lad to add to my hoard!! I’m so grateful I love everything you packed in here, down the gummies. I feel so spoiled. Thank you for putting so much love into my gift!

#2284 & #3497, good news! I just got a tracking update that the cursed order has finally arrived in my country after being MIA for 8 weeks! If everything goes as usual it should be arriving in a few days and I should be able to express ship it to you coming week. Once again, I am really sorry for the delay :( On the upside all the replacement gifts I panic ordered during Christmas has already arrived so you will be double compensated for your patience <3

Your note was very sweet, and I’m so glad you are happy to have penpals and people to write to. I’ll be sending you a note back!
The recipie looks delicious, I’ll be trying it out this weekend. That’s really cool that you were able to go to that restaurant!
I’ll be trying the tea today too and will let you know what I think when I write back. I personally thought the bows mini card was really funny, especially everything that has gone on recently. Finally the patch is absolutely gorgeous, I can’t wait to sew it on!

Thank you very much again!

Hi! I had real fun writing for another cooking enthusiast, hope you like the recipe!
!I’m happy the card arrived (a bit early for next Christmas lmao, but okay considering the distance and those crazy times we are atm).

I was a bit apprehensive with the joke considering this year's fiasco but well I’m happy it was okay and is super sweet of you writing back! Wish you the best 2021.

The bonnet and apron ARE PERFECT! I've always wanted a bunny ear bonnet and this apron is so cute! Are these handmade? They fit like a glove! And the monster hunter card, omg. Thank you so much!!!

My god, this apron has pockets, thank you!!!

Don't worry about the plastic bag, always send my stuff out in a tapped giant zip-lock or trashbag for that exact same reason. It rains way too much over here lmao.

This was a CARD??? Russiagull you are so delightful! Also idk how I balance hobbies and grad school. The answer may be lack of sleep...

3497 - I can't believe this was only a card tier! Thank you so much, I love everything - the little badge and charm! The bear dressup set - I don't know when I will use it, but it definitely made me smile! Maybe on one of my plushes that is not already a bear? Your handwriting is so pretty; I am glad that you think pink and yellow look so nice together, I whole-heartedly agree. This was my first year participating in this Secret Santa and this is the first thing that's arrived to me too and it's definitely set the bar high!
And 2154, I received your letter too! I'm so glad you were happy with everything, shopping for you was very fun. I'm glad I did a good job for my first year (and am hopeful I can do a good job in a higher tier next year!).

I love love love the mermaid postcard (it's pinned to my desk now!) and all the cute stickers are just perfect. I had to open and assemble the cute cat-in-a-box sticky notes asap to keep me company at my workstation. I also love the movie Stardust as well, and I will keep that bookshop in mind if I'm able to visit Scotland again :) This was a really nice thing to open during a mid-january slump, I really appreciate how much thought and kindness you put into this package; I'm definitely going to schedule a self-care night soon to put the mask and candy to use!

The amount of care you put into this,unfathomable. I've had a long day of work, an 8h retail shift turning into 11h due to being understaffed etc. I desperately called up my bff to pick it up cause I wasn't going to make it and the thought ruined me.

All that Transformers merch, they're all so smoll and cute. This probably doesn't tell you anything but I got Chromia in the lil mystery bag and I adore her. Soundwave is always superior and the lil Starscreams are perfect! My mystery botbot was Trisourtops and I will treasure Q.U.R.O.B.O forever (just fyi my absolute fave botbot is Sergeant Scrubadub)

I legit thought the bracelet was a direct purchase from my wishlist. I was wondering if I had missed that the listing included earrings. To know now that you MADE the set yourself is amazing. It is better than the Taobao one, I can't wait to try out the earrings (first time wearing earrings ever) and the bracelet is basically going to be worn with any outfit possible.

Then I discovered the candy (which won't last for very long) the lil Slytherin box is really pretty, its going to end up on my shelves. The bunny hairband is adorable, and then I got to the box.

Russiagull oh my Primus the shoe-box.

I put that Witch Mercy blaster on my wishlist yes but I'd never. I was feeling it in the bubble wrap thinking 'omg shoes??' which was already wow to imagine and then I got my hand on the handle and well obv I cried a lil. Way better than shoes. You could have literally just sent me the blaster with a post-it on it with your ID. I love it, plainly put.

To pull out an actual Angelic Pretty JSK right after though. After already placing so much awesome stuff on my coffee table. Words cannot describe, Russiagull. I paced around my apt with the blaster in one hand and the dress in the other like a lil kid.

Thank you so so much, this is the best Secret Santa gift I've ever received <3

Couldn't add this due to word limit but just opening up the cute card to see not one but two notes with a part 1 and part 2 was an awesome start! (You have lovely handwriting btw)

I'm going to insta-follow you rn, then we can see about becoming penpals cause it for sure sounds like a really fun and cute idea! I look forward to getting you hooked on botbots even further ;)

Is it just me or has the card tier been really generous this year?

#4562 just got your card! I'm so touched you drew one of my coords and I love the other little drawing inside. So damn cute! And than you fpr the stickers! Happy you have been converted to the dark tea side :) Lavender Earl Grey is indeed delicious! Card tier #9351

#2284 & #3497 your gifts are finally on their way after all the mishaps and delays! <3 The organizers will email you the tracking numbers. I got express shipping and the postal site says it should take 3 weekdays for the packages to arrive. However, with the current situation I would take that with a grain of salt.. But hopefully it should still be faster than regular mail! Can't wait to hear what you thought of the gifts :)

I can't count, so I thought I had received all my cards already. When I was notified that there was a new one at the depot I went there in simple curiosity. I almost lost my shit when I saw the name Karl on the box!

There has been a lot of discussion about the bitches love bows meme this year. I agree that it has played it's part and ought not be repeated more years, but I'm also of the opinion that I find this extremely funny. I laughed out loud so hard when I unboxed these hilariously tacky bows. The pink one has "cowgirl" written across the horseshoes in the brightest ribbon, as if the GAUDY Texas pride ribbon wasn't already enough. They're hilarious! I'm probably going to give the pink one away to an acquaintance who works at a horse riding school, so that some poor girl of 11 can be awarded a memorable prize in a competition. But Karl, my man, I'm keeping the texan one. I do know they can be clipped apart, but I like it as it is. I've clipped it on a string holding up my corkboard, so that I can look at it and remember you, because that makes me smile.

Great meme, and I'm honored to have received it. Many laughs were had, and I wish you a very early Merry Christmas of 2021, where nobody else will receive this exclusive elusive gift. Thank you for your sweet card!

>>10542668
What tier was this?
>>
>>10542709
The one it says in the picture and in the post....card.
>>
>>10542668
Hahahahaha
I'm so glad you liked it! I may consider doing the bows in the card tier going forward since there's not too much expected from those. I figured more than anything that the Texas pride one would go over well, I did buy local after all!
Have a great 2021, stay healthy and stay safe.
>>
>>10542711
picture wouldn’t load for me which is why i was asking.
>>
>>10542719
Keeping jokey stuff in the card tier is good. And maybe making sure your match is cool with jokes, too. Sending obviously jokey bows (like a seagull one would be funny) and ALSO including something good is the way to go.
>>
>>10542892
I second this. If I got Karl as a card match with a seagull bow I'd be pleased
>>
>>10542892
As long as the organizer is ok with me putting "Not Karl or Puvithel" as my match preference, I don't care what tier he's in.
>>
>>10542908
It would be more funny to get jokey bows in addition to getting like some nice fancier tea or desserts (not grocery store tier stuff). Just some food for thought, Karl.
>>
>>10542960
karl isn't doing it to be funny. he's obviously a sperg.

#4928, thank you for your card! Your "random assortment of flat stuff" is appreciated, and that gave me a good chuckle! I will pop the cards up on my pin board, and am looking forward to trying the tea! And thank you for the things you wrote in the card!

#7239, the drawing is absolutely adorable! The details are amazing and literally looks exactly like my outfit (and the little ducks are perfect!)! Also for the Tama stickers! Definitely right up my alley, though I will never have the heart to use them and will hoard them for all eternity.. they will never see the light of day again.

#6800 I love the card so much! And all the Tama and duck stickers too!!!! To answer your question, I rarely run multiple Tamas at the same time.. and to be honest, I too get too overwhelmed to play.. by the end of the 2nd week every beep makes me angry.. but I do display them all so everyone who comes to my house is forced to appreciate them! Maybe when Covid finally leaves us alone, you can enjoy a summer Christmas in the southern hemisphere!

Thank you all so much! I hope you all have a great 2021!

Yeah, when you look at the kinds of things gulls in the card tier have gifted each other VS what he's sent out, it's very obvious that he doesn't get the nature of this exchange.

>implying karl isn't samefagging into the next century
>>
>>10543394
I want one of your cards but I don't think they should be your standard even in the card tier. It's a fun bonus but I'd suggest including a real letter / some small flats your match would like. Stuff like a postcard with a design fitting their taste, cute stationary, stickers, etc. Not saying you must include all these things but rather that even one aspect would be a vast improvement to the recipient!

Anyways sign me up for a card if you do them again, I don't mind being your mutual match.
It's too bad we probably won't do a white day exchange at this rate or I'd ask for one now.
>>
>>10543487
this is embarrassing now.
>>
>>10543487
>real letter
anon the picture shows my real letter, with the design I drew on it and everything.
>>
I gave Karl the benefit of the doubt before and assumed he's just socially retarded, but the more he talks the more I'm convinced that he's just trolling.
>>
i still don't understand why we are even entertaining karl being involved in this at all. he's clearly just a shitty crossboarder who only lurks the board to talk to girls. we don't need to be uwu inclusive or something. it's entirely pointless to allow him, even if a few people (though it may be him samefagging) think it's funny or whatever. this is supposed to be a fairly exclusive board hobby specific secret santa, and allowing him to participate at all is retarded. not only that but he's annoying as fuck. someone being "harmless" doesn't mean they need to be allowed to ruin the event for others. if people ITT want to get his cards or whatever, contact him directly and fuck off.
>>
>>10543646
who even cares if he's socially retarded. he doesn't belong here. he should just go to reddit.
>>
>>10543646
Karl is a straight up normie and is not socially inept, he's just a creep and a lazy gifter generally speaking (doesn't mean all his giftees got grinched necessarily but they are all lazy)
>>
>>10543666
he may not literally be autistic but no one regularly on 4chan is a normie.
>>
>>10543689
>he may not literally be autistic but no one regularly on 4chan is a normie.
i agree, we're all just different levels of weird
>>
I gotta admit, I’d be fucking pissed to get Karl in the gift tier but pretty stoked to get him in the card tier.

Honestly it feels like the wait and bit of stress over the course of this gift exchange has given me massive good karma cause my goodness I feel truly spoiled! #6057 your gift came in and I had a blast opening it. Just opening the package and seeing that gorgeous bag first thing was amazing. I have always wanted a 3-way bag like it! It is going to be a staple in my wardrobe and not just for lolita. I don't study anymore but it really looks like it can hold a lot of things and I'm excited to find out just how much. Everything inside was wrapped so beautifully, those wax seals especially are really pretty. I tried to be gentle with them and even though I have no idea what I'll ever do with them I'm keeping them.

The mug is adorable and will be used as a pen-holder on my desk. Or a treat holder actually, which I admit is more likely. Not for the treats you've sent me though, those are so delicious they won't last the evening. I love how you went for a strawberry theme throughout the gift, it is indeed probably evident from my form and insta that fruit prints are my life, with strawberries taking precedence over cherries by a miiiinor bit! I'm amazed you found those socks NWT! Reading that you made the necklace yourself left me stunned, I fully admit to turning it over to see if the back of the bow had a tag or something on it. I'll be wearing it and the strawberry accessory set with like 90% of my outfits from now on, I really appreciate how much you thought of giving me things that would fit right in with my current closet.

Lastly its a bit silly probably but I'm quite absurdly happy with the facemask? I have to wear a mask 8h+ a day at work and have very often entertained the idea of getting myself some way cuter ones than the bright green ones work supplies me with.

Thanks a lot, your gift felt very thoughtful and sincere and will be cherished!
>>
>>10541311
I'm really glad that you like everything! You really deserve it after the year we've had... hopefully you can visit in your lifetime if CORVID doesn't drag on for then nest century!

It's great to have you as a match, maybe we can be card santas again next year.

Have a great year, I hope you are happy and healthy!
>>
>>10544890
Everything in this gift is gorgeous. Great taste for both you and your Santa.
>>
>>10544890

I’m so sorry for such a delay! Covid really kicked my ass, but better late than never; I’m so glad it got to you.

I’m so glad you had fun opening it! I got really anxious about the packaging as I’d bought special ribbon to match the paper and it didn’t show up in time, so I had a crisis about using string haha, I’m glad you didn’t mind it. It’s so sweet that you kept the seals! I love wrapping gifts and sealing letters with wax seals~

I’m so glad the bag was a hit! They’re honestly one of my favourite styles, and I purposefully tried to find one similar to mine because it’s so so so useful. I also like the enamel AP bags because they seem to last so much better, so I hope you get a lot of use out of it!

Ah, I’m glad! I wasn’t sure if you were a tea/coffee/hot chocolate drinker, but I sometimes use Sanrio/San-X etc. cups as pen pots etc on my own desk, so I’m glad it worked either way.

Super glad you liked the candies! If the missing item I mentioned shows up, I’ll send you another bag with some of the other flavours in.

Ah, thank you so much! I’m glad the necklace fitted your tastes, I remembered seeing you posting your new Drained Cherry dress on insta and thinking to myself “well hopefully the necklace is a good match!” haha

I’m just so delighted you really loved everything, this was my first year participating and I was so upset that I ended up being so delayed; seeing how happy you are with everything has really put me onto participating again in future. Picking gifts for people is honestly one of my absolute favourite things to do, and I’m so glad I did well!

Not silly at all, I also have to wear masks at work, and I totally get the vibe. That one is a handmade one from a wee Japanese shop, but after seeing it I might pick one up for myself too!

Thanks again for being my match!

This is so cute, I love themed gifts
>>
>>10545541
You have no idea how many times I had to edit out 'really' when I reread before posting. It was -really- far too many haha but excitement does that to a person!

Honestly, if the missing item is something you like yourself or can use then please feel free to keep it. The offer to send it after (and adding candy) is super nice, but this gift was already so nicely themed, and complete? It certainly doesn't feel like there's anything lacking in my opinion! You've fulfilled your role as Santa gloriously and with international shipping being so expensive having you spend so much again doesn't seem right to me. Its not your fault the supposed missing item got delayed after all!

> WE ARE NOW AT THE GRINCH CHECK DEADLINE!

I got 4/5 cards I signed up for which I think is pretty good, considering the state of 2020. Only 3/5 of my matches posted theirs but one international one might still be on its way; I hope it wasn't lost at least. If the santas are willing to share, I would be curious to know what % grinched this year (as in no gift no communication more than unsuitable gift), and if it's more than previous years or on par.

Hey Santa, just posting before bed that I got the second part of your gift before I go to bed!

I was out of town the day it arrive so my landlord was holding for so I opened everything last night. I love it! The fan arrived safely and nothing was broken. Not pictured are some cute little animal stickers(I stuck them on my laptop as soon as they I saw them haha). Thank you so much. Hanfu is so beautiful I appreciate your gift it's so thoughtful. My favorite part is the necklace! Do you remember the name of the shop you got it from? I'd like to shop from them in the future! Also your letter was super sweet!

My ID is 5177.

#9009 Did you get the other part of your gift? Let me know if it arrived safely or if you have any issues!

#5458 just picked up your gift today! Was such a nice surprise. Thank you so much for everything! I almost screamed when I realized the Pusheen snow globe was a t-shirt and I'm already wearing it. The accessories will work great in my wardrobe and the ivory canotier is just such a perfect match to one of my dresses <3 I'm so excited to try out all the snacks! Thank you for sending such a variety. I really love marshmallows so I think they will go first... I so quickly put up the magnet on my fridge so forgot to include it in the picture. But its really cute with the polar bear <3 Also, yes you were right that I was your match last year :) Happy that the roles reversed and that you got to be my santa. Hope you will have a great 2021 <3
>>
>>10549040
Yay, so glad the gift finally made it!! I realized your name was familiar right in the moment I was filling out the form for the customs, or else I would have definitely thanked you once again in my note - your last year's gift was really nice (I'm actually typing this while wearing one of the T-shirts you gave me!) Hope I did not seem whiny in my notes - I had a lot of fun shopping for you! And I'm happy if you enjoyed the gift. Thank you for being my match!

Oh my goodness, Santa, I'm freaking out so much. You completely spoilt me, this is one of the best gifts I think I've ever received ever?

You absolutely hit the Donald merch out of the park. Especially considering you didn't really get my weird love for the duck, I love every single thing so much. I had wanted the headband and the hip bag SO MUCH and I cannot get over how cute the little guy with the blue cheeks is.

The Amuse plushes are super cute, I especially love the little dinosaur! I'm going to try and put them on my phone case. And thank you so much for getting me my favourite Japanese sweets, I'm so excited to try everything!

I cannot BELIEVE you got me a wig! Oh my goodness! I'm incredibly excited to try it, I had to have a little sit down when I opened it. The nails are also incredible, and the lashes are one of my favourite styles, so they're perfect.

Finally all the My Melody bits and pieces are perfect and I'm so grateful you got me things I could use. I love the earmuffs and the scarf, nd all the jewellery is exactly my style.

I could really tell how much thought and care you put into every aspect of this gift and it really touched me. If you ever do want to get into himegyaru you have my insta I think?

Thank you so much Santa, and Merry Christmas! I'll cherish your gifts for a long long time <3

No, I did not perceive your notes as whiny! I remember myself the stress/excitement of shopping for another substyle from last year. Happy to hear that the gifts from last year still brings you joy!

I don't want to derail this thread, but what? I'm not saying it's expensive at all, but it's definitely not just $5 for the lot.
Average prices for each hanfu item when shopping is around 30-40 cny.

Words can't convey what this did to me. Of course, I cried, and I'm usually a tough cookie; my S.O.'s mother, who happened to be with me while I was unpacking, cried even more than I did. Why? Because all the love I was given. The packaging. The message. All the little tiny details of everything - and how it was meant to be. Not the box, but the message: you are loved. This is the greatest joy that could be given, despite the exchange being very physical. I felt you, and I felt that you felt me. This is very intimate, truly. I'm flattered, and honored, and endlessly happy to be your giftee.

Now I don't know how you managed to do all this and say "SORRY FOR NO ODDITIES" at the same time. The gift is so perfect in so many ways, so meaningful and personal, so appreciated. Like, everything in it. I didn't even know I had inkbox on my wishlist until I opened the part 2 of the card, you should've seen my face. I guess the kind that people make when some street gypsy says something personal to a complete stranger. And my favorite theme - flowers. The book and the seal were a complete WOW, they are going to be used heavily. Thank you so much for the melting tool - I've always postponed buying it and struggled with kitchen spoon insted. Sirene, no comments here, you already know how much I adore it. Paired with the jewelry and THE DRESS this felt literally like a part of my Pinterest board visualised and turned into the real thing, like some wizardry or alchemy - magical, surreal experience. All the Pusheen and cat stuff don't need no comments I guess! The plushes are adorable, don't know why you doubted them. Was the Detective from your personal collection? Will treasure it forever and keep it really close, I swear!
(can't say that for the cereals though)
(they're going to be rapidly devoured)

Not exactly satisfied with what I wrote but eh, no words can really help. Thank you. Thank you so much for everything!

I’m so relieved it finally arrived! It was a fun challenge shopping for you and I spent quiet some time studying your form and Pinterest board so I’m happy it paid off :) Yeah, detective Pusheen is from my own plushie collection. I have been considering finding him a new home for awhile (I have too many plushies and I keep buying more D:) but I had been putting it off for months since he was one of my first Pusheen ones. So when I saw your wishlist I decided that this was a sign. So happy I was able to bring you joy and hope you will have a great 2021 <3

When you still don't have your giff ... the item is still "on its way " they say ....

I don't think the organizers care. Most people got awful stuff this year, but according to the organizers ?they should just deal with it. This year was such a train wreck. I feel bad for you two that got you know who. Another year he gets away with it huh . I'm glad I stayed low tier .

>>10558690
not that i know of, but I'm only waiting for the last filler item to arrive before I send off my grinch squad gift.

very, very accurate
absolutely absurd this year

>>10555013
Lots unfortunately! We had a couple of people who were fully grinched and received nothing at all, as well as a few people who received subpar gifts.. some the giftees bought replacements and others we had to find volunteers for.. its been a rough year!

>>10558690
If you have been grinched, plz contact ASAP! Theres not a time frame, but it depends on whether the volunteers are still feeling merry!

>>10559997
when are the survey results gonna be posted?

>>10559805
why don't you volunteer as an organizer this year then? otherwise all you do is complain pathetically.

I just received 2 of my cards today, my country’s postal service just reached a whole new level, but luckily thread is still here so I really need to thank….

#5878

You are so sweet! Your card was amazing I love all the gifts you send! I already tried one of the teas (The s’mores one) it was delicious! I can’t wait to have a small self-care break and have the other tea and do the face mask too! I’ll write you back soon!

#3368

Words can’t describe how lovely your package was! I wasn’t expecting to receive so much love in a card tier, everything you sent was so lovely and you hit all my likes! I couldn’t stop smiling each time I unwrapped one of the gifts inside. Really, thank you, I hope you are well, happy and safe, and wait for a reply soon!


Wanna also thank the organizers for the awesome matches this year.

to #4255

What can I say? I am FLOORED by your generosity!! I was sad that I was grinched, but any bad feeling I had immediately disappeared when I saw the box arrive at my doorstep

Everything you got me was perfect!

I actually had my eye on that exact pair of AP socks, and I was so excited to receive them! The Teja Jamilla tights are beautiful too, the gilding looks so nice in person and I love the little patches as well! I can't wait to put them on something :)

I was able to figure out the dragon/puzzle box after a little finagling with it. I LOVE the brooch so much! The maker is actually one of my fellow comm members, so it's funny how things go full circle like that. I love those little two piece brooches with the connecting chains so I'm sure this one will be put to good use!

The face mask is adorable! Where did you get it? It feels really thick but is still breathable. The chopsticks are wonderful too!! I I only have one pair of reusable chopsticks so these will come in handy when my regular pair is in the wash. AND THE PUZZLE!!! Stained glass, cats, AND studio ghibli? I can't wait to put it together with a friend :)

I also love the stained glass motie postcard!! Can I say I own motie now? Hahahaha regardless, even though it's stationery, I doubt I'll use it and I'll probably save it forever lol.

The candy is fantastic!! I can't wait to try them all. Although I forgot to get a picture of them, the little seashells you added in the candy box were so cute and festive! Definitely adding them to my collection. I've already tried those colourful little tile candies, they're so good! They're surprisingly bright and not too sweet. The baby whales are so yummy and cute too!!

The coffin box with the skull bath bomb was so cute!! It smelled really nice and I'm so excited to use it!

My apologies for not posting earlier, I just went through a really really bad breakup and don't really have an excuse :/

Today I received your postcard, it made me so happy hearing from you!!! I can't believe we got matched.
I loved the stickers and the charm too, thank you so much, I hanged the charm onto my ita bag, and put one sticker on my kindle, I haven't tried the teas yet, but cannot wait to do so.
You're so kind, thank you very much!!!
>>
not to brag, but my match has been posting cute coords with my gifts to social media, and it is THE BEST
>>
>>10566109
That's so wholesome, what was your gift?

I fully admit to keeping an eye on a gulls insta if they include it in their form, to also see whether they really liked something enough to use it and post etc.

> that's my gift! you got that from me, I did good!
>>
>>10566336
I don't want to get too specific, but so far I'm seeing various accessories used. If my match didn't wear them, I wouldn't be disappointed, but this outcome is a wonderful bonus!

#9351, thank you for a sweet little message, it was so endearing to find this adorable pink envelope in my postbox! Sorry for posting it so late, I was away from home for a few days. I'm happy to know you liked the sweets and now I'm curious to try the Polish ones you mentioned in the note because I'm such a big fan of anything coconut-flavored! Really hope the borders will be back to normal soon and I'll be able to ask you for Stockholm tips. Thank you so much again, hope you're having a great day! :3

I’m so glad you liked it! I’m sorry to hear about your break up. That’s just awful. I was excited to get you some gifts because being grinches really sucks, especially after you’ve put care and thought into giving someone else a gift.

As for the mask, a girl in my comm was selling it. It’s AP’s marine kingdom print, but I don’t know where it came from. I think she said something about her mom making it? I don’t know where the fabric would’ve come from but it’s defythe same print so I don’t know. Maybe a tote bag.

I hope things get better for you and I’m happy that my package was enjoyed :)
>>
So....is there no grinch list this year? I haven't recieved anything yet.This is my second year doing this but even so ,last year grinch check was done by now. I've emailed few times now...no one has even posted anything about ginch exchange. I spent way above the price point this year too... I'm not in this just to get stuff...BUT I feel pretty shit about it.
I kind of regret signing up this year and not saving on El brando.

Dear 9351, it was such a nice surprise to receive your card. I've been having a bad week so it was a definite boost in mood to get this card and little treats right when I needed it. Your message left me dreaming of travel and all the trips I hope to take once we are through this pandemic!!! the card art is sooo cute too, I saw a moose for the very first time last year and it was enchanting (if scary) :) I hope that things are well for you and that you are staying warm! Best wishes, 6800

My Russian Grinch Squad match, I sent the tracking# to the organizers last night and dropped off the package today. It's coming via FedEx Express Economy from USA. There are extra restrictions on shipping to Russia right now, so let's pray to Mana that it arrives successfully.
>>
>>10571571
Yay! Thank you! Goth the tracking link and I’m super excited! <3 I’ve successfully received a couple of packages from US during last months so hope everything will be OK!
>>
>>10571571
Got a call from FedEx and apparently there are some problems with the shipment... Emailed the organizers so I hope they will send you the detais ASAP. I'm really sorry you have to spend extra time on this :(
>>
>>10572234
So sorry for the inconvenience! I just replied to the organizers that I can PayPal you to cover the extra fee, and they can share my email with you.
>>
>>10572808
Following up since I haven't seen anything in my email - I called FedEx now that they are open today and told them I would like to pay for the fee if possible from my account, and they said they will submit a report about it and call me back later. So hopefully they take the payment from one of us instead of returning the package, and I can cover the cost either way.
>>
>>10572008
>Goth the tracking link
heh
>>
>>10573103
They called back and said they'd charge duties & taxes, which includes that cost of customs clearance, to my account, so it should be resolved now.

#1417's Grinch Squad gift finally came in this morning!
I literally SCREAMED when I opened the packages and saw Moitie items!! This truly feels like a dream came true as I finally have accessories worth coording my dream dress with. The scarf design is genius and all the stickers are just beyond adorable from cute chubby bats to the halloween-themed cuties and delicate artwork of the nun lolita ones! The wallet is such a spot-on because I actually need one but never mentioned this in the form, are you a psychic? And then the ouija planchette phone holder!! Obligatory mention to the beautiful Hogwarts wrapping paper!

Thank you so much, Santa! I feel SO spoiled I can't find words good enough to describe how accurately your gift caters to my tastes and how much attention and consideration was put in this. You are a literal angel to make up for all the stress of being grinched this year - and THIS generously! I love everything!! BTW your Russian cursive writing is super pretty, it was such a surprise to find it on the card!

Tier $50-75

Anon, I'm so happy for you! The nun stickers are adorable, where are they from?
>>
>>10578360
What an amazing, thoughtful gift! I hope your santa is still itt because I'm going to need sauce on that wrapping paper

I'm so happy you got the package! I had to get creative with the fillers because the FedEx website said no food, cosmetics, or jewelry to Russia, so I was trying to avoid anything that might trigger investigation like the typical candy, facial masks, or pins. I think your form did mention a cardholder, so I understood that as wallet, but maybe you meant something different? Thank you for taking a picture of the wrapping - your form said you like digital art, so I tried to make it a big part of the gift with that, the card, and the stickers. I'm excited for you to live your best Moitie life!

"Holiday at Hogwart" wrapping paper by "NPC noir" on Society6

>>10578449
Society 6 has the best wrapping paper! That’s where I got mine this year for my giftee
>>
>>10578449
Perhaps I actually mentioned the cardholder but forgot about it? Anyway I've recently lost my coin purse so this one came in handy!

Could not resist taking a picture of the wrapping because it's so neat and printed paper is really pretty! I love how the smaller packages were wrapped in a way I could put them together to see a full motif - did you do it intentionally? And thank you for the tip on where to get it!

>I love how the smaller packages were wrapped in a way I could put them together to see a full motif - did you do it intentionally?
Kind of. After all the items arrived at my house, I realized it will be hard to tell that the wrapping paper has Hogwarts on it because it will be cut into small pieces to wrap my small items. That would be unfortunate because I picked the design especially for you. That's when I decided if I put the items in a flat box then I can arrange the wrapping like puzzle pieces to show off the art. I was pretty proud of it, if I do say so myself.

5955 here! This was a grinched gift and I honestly love it so much; the little Rilakkuma dressed as a cat! The yellow bows (I can never find as many as I want). The two Nile Perch items are things I’ve been meaning to buy forever and will match my wardrobe perfectly, thank you so much! Definitely worth the wait.
(This is the 30-40 tier!)
>>
>>10578976
I'm so glad you like it anon! I'm glad shipping to you was faster than getting your gift to me was! I hope you were able to skip any customs charges.

Did the stationary get wet or is that just a reflection? I'm so sorry if it did! I was second guessing my choices because you didn't mention Rilakkuma specifically so I'm glad to hear you like it! And the Nile Perch items were so cute, I was excited for you to receive them!
>>
>>10579017
Just a reflection because they're still in the plastic wrap! I didn't mention Rilakkuma but I do have a fair collection, any character who is a bear has my heart. (And I did manage to skip customs charges, thank you!)

Postal service is really whacky, just got this Christmas card that was sent in mid-December. Still was a very nice surprise since I had kinda forgot about the cgl ss. #3497 thank you so much for the card and all the cute gifts! I'm very excited to try the tea and face mask <3 The socks will come very in handy since winter lasts until May here! Also love your letter and the cool cat facts about your hometown. I will now appreciate Btssb Mon Choucou print in a whole new way.

I finally got back to see your package ready and waiting at my door. Dude, this is fucking amazing! You touched heavily on everything I wrote down and even managed to guess something I would really like!
I elaborate more in the image, but man, you really were a great grinch gifter, good on you!

*6952 sorry
Thanks so much for stepping in and stepping up this year, you really made this event for me. Also, it was quite fitting that I unwrapped this last...
>>
Gulls please post the rest of the gifts :/
>>
>>10587764
im a coward :/ i put it off cause i got huge anxiety over it for no reason and now i cant bear to look at this thread
also wondering when and if my cards ever arrived
>>
>>10587829
>coward
Why? What's there to be scared over?
Also you can always ping the organizers and ask them where your cards have gone.
>>
Are we just not going to enforce that everyone who got a gift has to post it?
>>
>>10591855
I've never participated, but if I were to join that would be a very important thing to me. I imagine a huge part of the joy of giving is seeing it posted in the thread.
>>
>>10591855
Thought that was a requirement

It's supposed to be

I really love my grinch gift anon, these are really cute and your notes on the box and stuff are so sweet! I meant to post this earlier but Ive been out of town, my apologies. I did take the bookmark with me though, and its so cute to see bananya as I read. I'm going to put the stickers on my work laptop when I get home too I think. Im really happy, it meant a lot to get such a nice gift. Thank you so much!

Speaking of! Thank you so much card anon (1383). The card is so beautiful that my mother gasped and said I should frame it!
Also, I have family in Germany so I’m gonna try to get a thank you card sent in-country!
