My parcel is ready and will be mailed tomorrow :)

I figure out, that a huge parcel with a mysterious content is my international Secret Santa. It's stored away until Christmas eve. Thank you so much, mcsar!

Dear mcsar,

it was great to open your parcel at Christmas eve. My daugther put the content in a festive bag under the tree ;-)
You found such nice things on the German internet shop: Twinings Classic tea collection, a great collection of bath oil ( I like Kneipp so much! It's such a funny wrapping, which tells the bath oil is for water sprites, mermaids, litterbugs, seahorses, deep-sea divers ...) and a wonderful colouring book "Escape to Christmas Past".
Thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts!

I am so happy that you like my choices, as I was relying on google translate to look up reviews and product details. Now I know Kneipp is a good brand for bath products, and the wrapping is so much fun (it totally exceeds my expectation). Now you can pamper and relax with a good bath, light some candles, enjoy some tea and a good book. Happy New Year!!

Secret Santa on its way to my partner.
Merry Christmas... and enjoy! :)

Can't wait... but will be good and keep it until Christmas.
Thank you!! :)

I will keep it until Christmas. Thank you Mrs. Brown

Should arrive in time :-)

Picked up my package from the post office today. Will wait a few more days :).

As I was away for the holidays, I just opened my package now.
Thank you dear Bavarian Santa for:
- wishlist book (Petit Pays by Gaël Faye)
- a candle
- some lemony soap (I guess)
- a book mark

Sorry, I made your choice difficult, but I just love surprises. I'm very happy about everything!
Profile Image
My parcel arrived a while ago, it was not easy to wait until today to open it :)
Thanks palwaha for everything you sent me, a beautiful handmade christmas card and bookmark, Christmas ornaments, chocolates and sweets, cookies and pens.
Profile Image
You are very welcome! Merry Christmas.
Profile Image
I really love your wonderful package with my wishlist book, a beautiful Cross Stitch Set, a pencil with a santa rubber and your lovely christmas card. Merry Christmas to you.
Profile Image
You're welcome, hope you are having a wonderful Christmas 😊
Profile Image
But I wish you all a very merry Christmas nonetheless!
Profile Image
But I did enter all the MyssCyn Secret Santas and the NSSFC in the UK so I have plenty to open (four parcels)
Profile Image
I hope my parcel found it's home in time. I sent it early enough and according to the Christmas schedule of the Finnish Postal Services so it should have made it before Christmas. I'm terribly sorry if it didn't.

I decided to leave all my gifts at home so I'll be opening them on 27th. :)

You have been an amazing INTL Secret Santa!
Thanks for a parcel full of goodies, including festive napkins... these will probably fly with me to Prague for my New Year's Eve special celebrations... lovely "romantic soap", that smells just like CHristmas... I never know whether to use them or keep them in my clothes drawers... bath salts (I know exactly when and where to use these!), lovely silver stars, Mexican bookmark and magnet, Sri Lanka keyring... Christmassy-smelling incense cones (I will try them this afternoon), and Winter-Creation chocolate... wow, we can't get these in Spain, and maybe it's for the best! :)
Thanks for the BC supplies, and for ordering a book for me... looking forward to this final surprise.
You have been a brilliant, spectacular Secret Santa, and you have definitely made me smile.
Merry Christmas to you, and Happy New Year! :)

Still waiting

for mine to arrive. Meanwhile, Merry Christmas to you all!!

For the wonderful Christmas present it contains,
Drop Dead Chocolate by Jessica Beck (a wishlist book )
The Christmas Mystery by Jostling Garden
Two chocolate Santa's and a bar of yummy looking nut chocolate
A very cute tree ornament
A Christmas card

I love it all thank you so much and I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas.
Profile Image
I really love what you have chosen for me. So thoughtful.

It was also nice that it arrived after Christmas Day when I was back at home.

The card is beautiful - hand-made - a cut-out of a star from the music from a Christmas Carol and there are some lovely words written inside (Care deeply, Think kindly, Act gently and be at peace for this is the spirit of Christmas)

A lovely Botticelli Il Primo Bacio writing paper and envelope set
Owl notelets and envelopes
A Moomin rotary candle (I have loved all the Moomin presents I've received this year)
A Moomin family bookmark
A Lindt Christmas heart
A green tea towel
A little reindeer biscuit cutter (very sweet)
A foldable shopper bag with Buch on it - fantastic, useful and good to look at.
BC bookplates and the bigger rectangular stickers which are my favourite and you can't buy anymore.
And two BC bookplates with BCIDs on them - which suggests books travelling separately!

So many good things - I hope I haven't forgotten anything.

I look forward to seeing you in Bordeaux!

My christmas lasted an extra day (may this be Unboxing Day) as I came home today and spent the evening opening all my gifts. And there was plenty of, thank you my dear book crossing friends.

Thank you Poodlesister for quite amazing gift that made me go WOW! The box was endlessly filled with quite a range of things. Inside there was:
* some labels with the card, very needed as always
* beautiful kitchen towel in Finland's colors (white and blue)
* a packet of sticky notes
* 4-pack of Christmas paper fan decoration
* M&S's Christmas themed Percy sweets (We have a small M&S in Helsinki, there used to be some groceries too and I think I've seen Percy sweets before). Yummy!
* cucumber peel-off mask (it should peel off dirt and grime, hopefully it'll make me look a bit more human before going back to work after the holidays...)
* magnetic London bookmark (I love London!!!)
* sheet of London stickers (how can I ever use them???)
* Sainsbury's Mini Shortbread Stars which rally look tasty, I like shortbreads quite a lot
* Sainsbury's 18 Month Matured Cognac Laced Christmas Pudding for me to try, I've never had Christmas pudding (or honestly understood what is)
* decorative sticky tape
* English heritage postcard and love postcard of the British red telephone box
* a book "30 Things to Cook & Eat for Christmas" which I loved as I love baking but I'm usually out of ideas. And I love giving homemade gifts such as candy or cookies http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14693817
* a book that was on it's way to my wishlist, "Lyrebird" by Cecelia Ahern http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14432080

Thank you so so so much! I wish you will have a great year 2018 filled with good books. :)

Happy New Year to you all...

for a most beautifully wrapped Christmas parcel. Your parcel was such a joy to open. It was joy to be greeted by all the individually wrapped presents. I know I will enjoy a big bar of dark chocolate, the lovely black tea, the tea lights and the angel tea strainer. Thank you very much.

I'm glad it arrived safe and sound, I was really worried about it. Actually I tried to ask from the post office I left it if they forwarded the package. :D I'm glad you enjoyed opening it. Happy New Year!

For the book "Coming home for Christmas", lots of chocolate, a super cute snowman bag, Santa ornament and Christmas card :)
