        you girls are too funny.
        Ok Yes, let's wait for Jaime to get her gift....Then....once that happens I'll set up a list for Valentines day.

        Is that ok with everyone? It would be the same rules....$25 gift...not including shipping...and we'll make a list again...

        if it's ok with you girls...we'll do it :)

          Drea - i am in for the Valentine's Day but i would suggest 2 things:

          1. maybe do a $15 or $20 gift

          2. that we use elfster (not that you didn't do an AMAZING job) but it is so easy to use and if you are the 'organizer' you can still have total control if someone doesn't send their gift you can look up who had them, hence any necessary consequences. One of the main reasons i love elfster is that you can set up a wishlist, modify it, put direct links, etc BUT you can send anonymous questions to your secret santa or gift person.
          EX. i had Melissa and really wanted to buy her these fuzzy slippers but she never put her size - with Elfster i could ask her anonymously what size feet she had, etc.
          i have used it for 3 secret santa's this holiday and everyone LOVES it!!!

            My family is also using it for our Pollyanna's and it is working pretty well. I like that we can put a direct link in...

              YAHOOOOOO!!!!! My roommate just came in (weird, cause he never comes home from lunch) with a huge package that had been left for me! He looked at me like I was a little crazy as I jumped around the room saying "YAY! It must be my Secret Santa!!!!!" hahahahaha

              Tami (foxytv) Thanks soooo much! I love my gifts!!!!!

              I'm actually glad you got us something other than Merlot because recently our tastes have been moving more towards Cabernet and Shiraz - this blend looks YUMMY! So do you rep for a wine company? That's so cool.

              I am so excited to finally have some wine charms! I can't wait til Martin and I can sit down by the fire with wine in the glasses you gave us eating the yummy chocolates. THANKS!!!



              P.S. OK LADIES, You may NOW begin your future planning!!!

                  ok Alyssa, I will look into it and set up an account so we can do it this way because I know there might be more people signing up this time ....I will make a Thread starting Jan. about Valentines :)


                  Hooray Jaime got her gift...love it....

                    I second the Elfster recommendation!! Our family used it this year and I LOVE that you can ask the person questions and remain anonymous!
