The world is shit and I generally hate most things about it, but DiS secrets Santa thread reaffirm my faith in humanity :+1::grinning:


#8

From the other thread:

I’ve opened mine cos i’m super impatient! (and also going out after work tomorrow so won’t be able to open it tomorrow afternoon/evening)

I got a really cool patch of a cat giving the middle finger(s) which I love and will be going on my denim jacket :heart_eyes: AND a massive bag of iced lebkuchen! :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: Can’t post pics tho cos my phone is a piece of shit.

I didn’t realise I was so transparent on these boards but whoever got me seems to know me pretty well :smiley: I’m very very happy and thank you so much to my secret santa, whoever you are! xxxx


#9

These emojis are enormous.

Which is fine.


#10

you have to make a guess at who your santa was!


#11

oooooh. they called me ‘a fellow cat lover’ and mentioned bearded white men bearing gifts :smiley: so imma guess EMO?


#12

Was it beautifully wrapped, utilising double-sided tape? That seems to be EMO’s MO.


#13

If it isn’t EMO I reckon I could have a stab although I may be completely wrong.


#14

Good morning! :gift:

Well someone knows me far too well. A book about graps, Gin and Video Game Cups of Tea!

Thanks you so much :heart_eyes: xx

I’m going to guess. Ruffers?


#15

I’m awake and have been awake for an hour!!!

Going to open my present when I get to Devon though.

Great job @japes for organising this :slight_smile:


#16

I love that mug! Bravo, Santa.

Right, so with the day ahead bringing Christmas I with my dad coming over and simultaneously trying to keep my teething toddler happy, it turned out about 3am was my prime window for opening my Secret Santa present, but I thought I would hold off posting for a few hours to be respectable.

My lovely Santa sent me a tissue wrapped parcel bearing this lovely shimmery card:

Upon opening I was immediately caught with sheer joy as I noticed this:


Dutch Percy Pigs! :heart_eyes: My Santa claimed to have not known much of my tastes, so they really struck gold here as I love these things! I know they are the variety from Holland because my dad brought me back a bag from his holiday earlier in the year, was totally shocked by their existence… anyway, getting off track here!

After the excitement of that there were two other awesome gifts:


:grinning: I don’t know if my Santa did their research to know I love getting new socks for Christmas, and I absolutely adore the design on them - totally my kind of thing! Harder to see, there is a cool little leaf pin badge which manages to combine my fondness for enamel style things and my love of puns:

Thank you so much Santa! I love my presents and I felt a wave of festiveness opening them :smile:

:face_with_monocle: My biggest Santa clues are that it seems to have come from Holland, so if I am remembering DiSer locations correctly that means… @shrewbie?

Massive thanks also to Santa Overlord @japes for organising the festivities! :santa:
