    Steven, I checked with your Santa, and there were several issues, state of health among them. Your gift should be on its way shortly.

    Thanks for your patience.

    I am not sure if my recipient has received his yet. It was sent out on 12/21. Of course there have been a couple of Sundays and holidays in that time.

    :dunno: Still don't know if my gift was received as indicated by USPS. Oh well... Time for a rethink.

    Just checked the e-mail and I received an online gift certificate to soundstagedirect.com. Thanks Secret Santa! Time to go shopping for a few CDs I've been looking for.

    I got my SSD gift certificate today and spent it on a Rilo Kiley album and a Ray LaMontagne double album. Thanks Santa.

    Haven't heard of Rilo Kiley but you can't go wrong with a ray lamontagne record.

    I sent my gift out before Christmas. I'm afraid I'm new to all this and my gift was not so secret. I was struggling to come up with an idea, and was running out of time!

    I've got a better idea from reading this thread how to go about it now. I hope the recipient liked it, it wasn't much but in the right theme I think?

    I for one have never been disappointed with an AK Secret Santa gift I have received.

    I am sure your recipient will understand the circumstances and appreciate both the effort and the item

    I just received some VERY cool Tull memorabilia: an original 45 of Bungle In The Jungle, a copy of Heavy Horses on 8-track (!), and perhaps the coolest of all - Circus magazine (UK) from 1975 with Anderson on he cover playing live, codpiece and all, and includes a transcript of an interview with him. I haven't read that yet... a little apprehensive about breaking the seal.
    Thank you Santa! Sorry about the mix-up.

    Thank You! I received a Soundstage Direct gift certificate from my Secret Santa and I will soon get to experience one of my favorite albums on 180 gram vinyl. Ween's "The Mollusk"! I also got Ween's "Shinola" which is a collection of cuts that didn't make the studio releases. I am excited and grateful to my Secret Santa and to AK for coordinating! Happy New Year to each and all!

    Well, stuff happens. One package has taken 21 days to reach destination, shows delivered now. Due to delays in production, other didn't ship until the 5th so it may not get delivered till the end of the month. Well, Santa and the elves were a bit tired after all the December work they did, and they were going to take a trip further south anyway.

    So if you're still waiting downunder, take a look in your mailbox, and then look again around the 26th.
