Just playing the waiting game for my items. I need to go out and take a picture to send along with it though.
Little late but I would love a signed card too! I am also really excited to deep dive into buying now! Been preoccupied with final projects and I’m finalllyyyy freee!
Orders have been placed. Hope the cards come in safely! (And get delivered safely). Might take some time to draw my Pokemon though, so I may not be able to mail mine out till mid-December
Got all my gift ready to go, thinking of adding a little more, will ship out in December most likely
I am also eagerly awaiting items arrival! So I’ve been working on my drawing
I did my best with my drawing. It’s not great but I tried lol
I am certain that it will be appreciated by your person!
I’ve already received my gift from my Secret Santa! I want to open it soon…
USPS says my gifts were delivered to my recipient
A very exciting time! I’ve already had a few people reach out to provide tracking information.
Just a reminder that while people are required to post a picture and a thank you in the picture thread, many choose to save their gifts to open on Christmas, Hanukkah, or other special days. So if your recipient doesn’t post right away, don’t worry about it.
Here are USPS shipping deadlines for the Americans, standard ground date to arrive by Christmas is 12/16:
My secret santa was very hard-working because the gift has already arrived!
I just have to stay patient for one month now very excited to open it up on christmas!
And I’am about to make the first orders for my gift
Man I can’t believe I missed the cutoff date. By a lot. Sigh I guess there’s 2024…
Flying to Japan next week and then the Santa’ing begins!
Hopefully my recipient doesn’t mind waiting a bit. It’ll be worth it.
Secret santa shopping is hard. “This card looks really cool, but what about this one? But wait, what about this card? Oh, it’s not good enough condition wise to gift. Maybe this one then.”
And then you do this… Oh! Maybe I will get one of these for myself!
Seriously this. And then you buy the right stuff but some of the key highlights get cancelled after purchase.
Sent my package to my recipient today… went outside my comfort zone to try to familiarize myself with cards they seem to like… I hope they like it.
Hopefully they’re not the “wait until Christmas type” so I don’t have to wait a month to find out. I can only hope I was matched with another impatient child like myself.
That happened to me last year so this year to avoid my gift arriving late, I made sure to order my items early. And then I find the same card listed a couple of days later 15% cheaper
