It happens every year.  Hopefully everyone gets their gifts soon.

I agree but, 4 people on the previous page haven't even heard from their recipient.

Well, it is the Christmas season and people are on holidays and on the road.  I'm trying to stay positive here.

People, if you received a Secret Santa gift and you didn't send one out you're letting someone down.  I also think it's time to consider adding people who don't send gifts to the probation thread for a failure to complete a transaction as agreed on.

You positive Pete :baiting:

I think their gifts must have gone to the isle of misfit toys

Curious what the other side of the story is.  If anyone goes to the Probation List, and a resolution isn't found, could someone post back here and let us know what was on the letters to Santa?

I haven't received mine yet but have NO ISSUES because he contacted me saying it had not arrived yet and he was going away for Christmas. I think that's the way it should be handled as I'm fully aware of whats happening and have no worries and not wondering where mine is

I've gotta say I'm kinda bummed that my SS recipient didn't reveal his gift I got him. I really researched thanks to skypinkblu , and went to several comic shops to find what he wanted.

I'm glad he likes it though.

I know how you feel. A couple of years ago, my Santa was disappointed in his gift but he still thanked me despite it.  So last year I was determined not to have that happen again and asked Skypink for help and got my guy a great item  but never heard anything. I stewed about it and felt bad that I failed again, so I typed him. He actually loved the present and needed it for his collection but just didn’t post or message it so hang in there.

I guess everyone is just a little different on how they handle the presents. For me, it doesn’t matter how much I don’t like the present, the guy sending it will get an immediate thank you note. That’s the right thing to do and hopefully everyone will do that.  Others may be on trips and can’t post pictures but hopefully can send a message. 

(* Note, my Secret Santa nailed my gift for me so the above “not liking it” is just an example)

I was hopeful that the gift I sent would reach my recipient in time (it did!) but I asked another member to send my person a note letting them know that it was headed their way so they weren't in total limbo.

Just like so many things on this board a little communication goes a long way. I know things happen, but stick to your commitments and everyone wins.

I haven't seen pictures posted here but I know he got the goodies (he sent me a thank you PM) and I haven't had a chance to reveal what I got, but I sent a thank you PM to my SS as well so we figured it out  (thumbsu

I'm willing to be a backup SS for anyone who was missed as well as needed!

I've been in contact with both parties of everyone who has reported to me about not receiving a gift.
For the most part, it looks like some shipping delays are the cause of most of these headaches.... MOST!

Thanks for all those who have offered to be back-up Santas. It is greatly appreciated and I will definitely take you up on it if the need arises. Which, given the dwindling if not already surpassed timeline might be fairly soon.
I'm new to this, and I do not want to assign a back-up for something I'm told is on its way... but I don't expect anyone to wait until spring showers bring mayflowers either.

Thanks for all your work to keep the boards in Christmas spirit, you're doing a great job.

Are there Santas who have not sent a gift yet?
