My package from the US had no updates for seven days before I got an email that it made its way to Sweden. Should be here tomorrow or the day after.

Well, unfortunately mine was gone before I could post a pic but thanks to @HansderHund for thinking creatively while in a (stupid) Austrian lockdown - my gift box from a favorite artisanal foodie place was filled with fresh fruits, meats and cheeses - all of which got swooped in by my fam before I could get a nice pic. Crazy how this is I think the third time he got me as a secret santa. Wacky! I swear its not rigged.


On the other side of the coin, my recipient is in a pretty far away place and the parcel is still crossing boundaries for the second week.... fingers crossed!
Glad that they liked it! Another package will make its way over when things are back into full swing!

I believe this was the second time...granted, we had a smaller pool this year, but I was floored. I was so relieved when I found out someone else drew my name because if we had ended up drawing each other again, I don't think anyone would believe me.

My recipient's gift got caught in shipping purgatory for a touch over two weeks (getting to me), but is properly on its way now ("dependent on flights"). It still has to travel internationally, though, so it will almost certainly be a New Thriftyear gift, at this stage. Fingers crossed that it travels safely at least.

Big holiday thanks for @330CK who checked my wish list box of wants and needs. My OTC sock inventory was starting to lag and my insatiable pocket square appetite was fulfilled. Next year I have to remember to add a vintage corbusier or stickley chair to my list. Cheers

The mailman couldn't deliver yesterday as I wasn't home when he rang, so I had to collect it today instead.

Many thanks to B.P (couldn't find your StyFo alias anywhere) who bought me these fantastic gifts which include: Three paris of Incotex trousers, VK Nagrani shirt (unknown brand to be before this), two silk ties from Brioni and one made from 50/50 silk and wool from the same maker. The one with tennis players on is a NWT Polo RL. Also some delicious nutty candies nom nom

If you read this B.P. please make yourself known so I know who to thank.
Also, absolutely insane calligraphy comparing to pretty much all hand written things I've ever read.

Big shoutout to @eazye for the thriftmas items! All these years, I've only found one Pendleton blanket. It was years ago, new in the box and became a Christmas gift for my sister and brother in law, so that was nice to get one for my fam. Unseasonably warm temps here right now, but just like my delivery of firewood this week I'm sure it'll get used. The cash tie, and the funky hand carved wood mug are a nice add, and the local coffee has gone straight into the cupboard. Thanks!

My recipient will hopefully get theirs soon. Had to stop waiting to find Kiton vicuna and Tom Ford on their list, and just sent what I had (late).

Yay! I'm glad you dig them! I was really struggling with what to put in there, as you're someone who I know is a legendary gift giver and also someone who, like myself, probably has way more than we could ever need. Merry Christmas!

You're too kind, thanks!
My outgoing gift is straight up late because of me, and it's going international. Seems like a lot more are in limbo though.

Huge thank you to @Zerase for sending an incredibly thoughtful gift my way! Special note to say that he had this thing in the mail incredibly fast and it had the pleasure of sitting under the tree until the 24th.

I was thrilled to open it up! I am amazed every year at how much thought goes into gifts. I mentioned Airedale stuff and this is 100% right up my alley. A pair of glass Kosta Boda dogs, including both an Afghan and Airedale.

It was also filled with a pile of Swedish candy. Only a few pieces pictured, my kids have torn through it so unfortunately couldn't get pictures of everything.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, @Zerase!

I'm glad you liked the doggos and that your children enjoyed the candy (even the Djungelvrål) ;)
