Just got my email. Updated my collection too.

#52 6 months ago

This is cool. For the first time I’m giving gifts to someone that posts on pinside more frequently. Upon quick research seems like a great person that I can’t wait to send gifts to.

Same here! I had totally forgotten about updating collection. Currently stalking my santee, lol, best part!

#54 6 months ago

The suspense was killing me as I read through the email and then...

Your Secret Santa is...

Pinsider: Mtg381

I'll try to keep it a secret but I got myself a Godzilla Premium!!

#55 6 months ago

Sweet! Very stoked with who I got assigned

#56 6 months ago

I usually just go thru the impulse aisle at Walmart and pick a few things that don’t look too beat up.

#57 6 months ago

Actually, I’m scouting out an inflatable nativity scene. Who wouldn’t want one?

stalking in action. some shopping done just by the info the pinsider gave me.

#64 6 months ago

This has already come up so it's as good of a time as any to mention this. Many Pinsiders will send multiple gifts from multiple places at potentially multiple times. Just because you get one box doesn't mean that that is your only gift, so please continue to keep an eye out. I know of one Secret Santa who already has something coming for the recipient tomorrow so even if you get something in the mail, don't assume that is necessarily it.

Up to 178 participants now too.

Oh please, don't have me!!

#73 6 months ago

How could anyone eat that! I'd much rather grill up a chinchilla

#74 6 months ago

Wow. So cool and thank you. I have already received a box. I will wait until tomorrow and open it with my daughter after school.

I love this meme, never miss a chance to use it. Can't help but read it in Shang Tsung's voice.

I actually do like fruitcake. Surely there have to be others.

I joked, but I kind of like it too.

#79 6 months ago

Probably the best thing going on Pinside, you guys all rock!
Thanks John

#80 6 months ago

Happy to announce my shopping is done!
Sure hope my Santee enjoys opening his/her presents as much as I enjoyed shopping for them.

Asking for a friend, how much food / water do Chinchillas consume in say 3 - 5 days?

#81 6 months ago

This Santa is done! So much fun. Merry Christmas all!

#82 6 months ago

I've got what I need, thanks all!

Thank you secret Santa. We received our first gift on Sunday and have just opened it up. My 6 year old and I are putting it together tonight. She has decided that three of them are girls and “super powerful”

fun dad/daughter moments are precious so thank you. It is a good precursor to me teaching her how fun it is to give. She already wants to help pick out some gifts for the pinsider we have.

Awesome. Im pretty sure the Blue one is actually a girl. Played by Katee Sackhoff in the Mando show.

#85 6 months ago

Cool now I can show her a picture of that character thanks

#86 6 months ago

I have not received my secret Santa person, I emailed on pinside a few days ago. Also checked my junk mail.

I sent you a PM.

#88 5 months ago

People already receiving gifts?!?! I need to get shopping!!

#89 5 months ago

Finished shopping. Now I wait to get the stuff, wrap them (I'm a purist) and ship it out. I should have enough time.

#90 5 months ago

my purchased gift(s) are supposed to arrive on friday. that should give me adequate time to verify that nothing is damaged, wrap and then ship out to my recipient

I'll have to see if I have the skills to carefully wrap a chinchilla just like that cat above

#91 5 months ago

If the wrapping doesn’t go well, try spraying with a can of fake snow . Very festive.

#92 5 months ago

Got my first round of gifts ordered but the fun is just beginning! So excited!

says who?

#95 5 months ago

Agreed. I have no control. I'll open at the mailbox when my mine arrives

#96 5 months ago

Super stoked for my gifts to arrive so I can get them out to our PinSider!! Plus another run or so locally in the meantime and we should be finished up…thanks to everyone who is participating and hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!

#97 5 months ago

I'm done ordering. Now just waiting on some furry friends to arrive. Do you know how hard it is to find chinchillas?

#98 5 months ago

Canned or fresh?

#99 5 months ago

I froze mine before putting it in the box, stays fresh longer! Gotta admit though, that little critter looked cute as hell with his scarf and mittens!

#100 5 months ago

I hope my Santee enjoys the chinchilla sweater, it took so many of those little fellas, but I swear it was worthwhile. They sewed so fast with their tiny hands!
