    Well I tried to wait but that lasted 5 days. Thank you to the very generous SS that I got. I really appreciate how much care and effort you put into the wrapping and messages with each gift. This really motivates me to go the extra mile next year. Thank you again.

    Got some swag from PBL. A pingulp that will see many, many, many cans, and a rubber hose to beat my kids with! I'm also glad PBL got the order. Thanks!

    Many people are negative about pinside but this thread shows what an epic community we are. Well done to all the secret santas!

    #415 69 days ago

    I received my gift today. I’m going to try and hold off until Christmas.

    #416 69 days ago

    Can't wait to see if pinsider loves what i sent I tried to mix it with useful stuff for pinball to some fun pop culture items. I'm still waiting mine to come

    #417 69 days ago

    I didn’t feel like waiting so I opened up my package as soon as it got here today.

    I got what I think is a very nice home made pinball card which was very impressive.

    I also got Supreme stickers that I can put on any EM to turn it into a Supreme machine, a really cool drop target patent shirt and two sets of comet spot light kits which will find a great home in my Safe Cracker.

    On top of it all I got a play pinball hail satan sticker which made my day.

    Thanks SS!

    I feel the same way. I shipped my package out a few days ago because I was thinking up more stuff to add. I hope all recipients share pictures of what they receive and let us know what they think. My gift is sitting waiting to be opened on Christmas Day, but I will share a reveal post

    #421 69 days ago

    Secret Santa just got here. If the card is any indication of the my gifts, Santa knocked it out of the park. Santa took the time to wrap my gifts so I'll wait too open on Christmas.

    I'm blown away! I just received a huge package and now have the difficult debate on waiting to open or not. I'm sure my kids will vote to open early! Thank you so much to my secret Santa!

    I did forget that I completely forgot to include the note I printed out for my secret Santa recipient so I hope the random assortment of things I sent make a modicum of sense, lol.

    On the 19th day of Pinsmas,
    my Santa sent to me...

    A can of Sprayway glass cleaner.
    (Good timing as my current can is almost empty. I'm guessing Santa might have watched my Elvira unboxing video where I mention this is my favorite glass cleaner.)

    Traveling so opened a few days early. My Santa killed it. I've been staring at the tna pin gulp for a while but couldn't pull the trigger. It's great. And a cool long sleeve shirt from a pinball group in Omaha. To top it off enough ninjas to refresh my ball supply multiple times.
    Thank you so much SS!

    Waited longer than I expected I could, but had to open!

    For some fun sugary treats I got some old school big league chew. And a santa that poops candy...I just hope santa doesn't try pooping the gum

    Got some salami and Dr. Pepper (which I will enjoy!). I couldn't get paper to be in focus, but my ss stalked and found a thread where I mentioned liking this combo!

    Another thread I was noticed a lot in is the cats and pinball thread. So I recieved a fun mug and cocoa

    Santa must have noticed some of my rants in a few threads to guess the rum I got would be enjoyed HONEST!! It's just cocoa in me mug. Lol.

    Also, due to my pinside initials, they guessed well that I like PEZ. Got a cool Doctor Who limited PEZ AND a Doctor figure. Both very COOL! Love doctor who stuff...on the back of the box, I saw there is also a Dalek figure; So now I'll have to be keeping an eye out for that one at a store some day for myself!

    And last but not least, for the pinballs...I got a nice large assortment of Comet LEDs!! The variety will be nice to try out different ones for accents etc

    THANK YOU secret santa!!!
    All the gifts are appreciated and will be enjoyed!

    Seeing all these posts makes me excited to see what I get. I am still waiting on mine in the mail, which is probably a good thing since I have no patience for waiting to open gifts.

    Got a text with a pic of a mysterious package that just arrived for me at home!

    Vacation for the rest of the year starts tonight, so this will be a loooong day but can't wait to share the results later tonight.

    That box shape has my mind spinning ...

    Wowza!

    Secret Santa arrived today. We’re out of town for the holidays, so I had to peek.

    Absolutely nailed it! I can’t wait to decorate the LED board. Thanks a ton and I hope you have a great Christmas!

    That fiendish Christmas Krampus paid me a visit today and left behind some awesome swag: Two sweet T's from release parties at Ayce Gogi and a generous Pinball Life gift certificate! There are assorted knickknacks too: pins, a patch, and an ornament. Thank you very much Secret Krampus, you know me well.

    My SS did some pro stalking and had some fun with my Pinside handle! On each gift was a little clue or quip as to what was inside. So much thought went into it!

    Got a sweet R&M t-shirt, even though I cant remember if I said I was in on one or not! Also, they knew I loved XMen so got me a couple of Logan and Wolvie funko pops! SS also got me some casters for ease of moving machines around, and picked up that I own (and love!) Flash Gordon. Lastly, they had some fun with my Pinside handle and got me some delicious filled Hello (Fat) Panda snacks and some holiday Junior Mints. And I cant forget the awesome Pacman ornaments/game room decorations.

    WOW!! I cant say thank you enough!

    Everyone is making me jealous while I wait for my package to be delivered.... Seems like everyone stepped it up another notch this year!

    (And it's awesome seeing my Santee liked his gifts ).

    Surprise package at the office today, couldn't stand it, had to open before I got home! PSS picked out some rad gifts that really cover both want/need perfectly. I’ve been meaning to check out this book for months and suddenly boom, here it is! Really excited to jump in and as I flip the pages, more and more sweet stickers and patches start falling like snow. As a great utility gift, I also got remote control outlets which are gonna work great for a row of pins I have waaay too close to each other. I really appreciate the generosity of my SS and want to send back wishes for the happiest of holidays and merriest of Christmases! Thank you!

    Inside the very nice/secure packing were two wrapped gifts. The photos of them wrapped don't exist as the kids were too excited to let me snap a pic.

    First was an enormous Nestle Crunch bar. Like 1 pound big. Photo below of one of the happy eaters with about 9 ounces of it left. Thank you Santa, very fun.

    The second gift is just awesome. A framed Addams Family themed print from the Old School 3D artist Brad Albright. It's very cool on it's own, but throw on those 3D glasses and it gets even better. There is a perfect place for this on the wall next to where TAF normally resides when there is no Christmas tree. Can't wait to put it up.

    Thank you so much Secret Santa, you knocked it out of the park.
