Ho! Ho! Ho! So exciting to see gifts going out already!! You guys know how to bring a twinkle to my eye!! I get more happy about this thread than a whole plate full of cookies (and milk too, of course!)! This is our official "Thank You!" thread!! (Btw, saying thank you is actually a requirement for being part of the Secret Santa each year...you gotta say "thank you" to stay off the naughty list!)

Once you get your gifts, please be sure to say thank you to your Secret Santa! You can post a photo of your gifts here and post a thank you note, or you can reach out to them in a different way if you'd like, but please, PLEASE be sure to say thank you!!

Huge shout out of thanks for my Secret Santa. I don't believe they revealed themselves yet but they're awesome! Already calibrated and used her right away!

Do I or don't I open? Pretty sure I know the basics of it and I'm pumped! SS definitely read my post and is appreciated... I recognize the company (Harry & David), they have awesome quality so I'll probably crack it open this weekend.

Thanks so much Secrete Santa. I can now start propagating some corals (never done it before) and also make a start on my new aquascape over the summer Xmas holidays :) exactly what I needed.

Okay wasn't going to wait longer, busting out this bad boy tomorrow morning for our weekly coco and fish feeding with my 6yr old! She was impressed and knew exactly what it was for.

Thank you Secret Santa! These are perfect - I'm just finishing a length re-build of my 525XL and I 100% need all of these. I lost my nice microfiber during the teardown, I'm completely out of carbon, and I just had to toss a pump that I realized that I ruined from soaking in vinegar for too long (going to try to stick with citric acid from here on out!)

Thank you so much!

Will like to know how that cloth works for you.

Secret Santa you have truly blown me away.
A second gift arrived today and its exactly what I needed on this hot day. A box of a dozen different craft beers from Beer Jerk along with assorted snacks. The beers look delicious and I can't wait to try a few (some are 9.6% so I'll pace myself :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:)
One of the snacks is a bag of Snack-A-Changi chips. for those of you that have never seen these (I'm assuming pretty much everyone in the US) the labelling on the packaging is pure NZ humour. I have included closeup for everyone to enjoy. Thank you so much Secret Santa.

My Secret Santa is AWESOME!! @12humuhumu21 is SIMPLY THE BEST!! Rebecca touched my heart asking me questions thru Elfster that made me feel like I was getting to know her - but only tonight did I find out who my Secret Santa is!! (hugs!)

WAHOO!! EVERYTHING is something I need and LOVE!

For those of you who don't love romantic comedy, I've opened up this so you can see both sides and likely you'll be wishing you were here to watch this with us!!
IMG_1877.JPG


And FINALLY I can stop snitching tools out of the garage to use in my aquariums - LOOK AT THESE!!! HOLY COW!! SO EXCITING!!
IMG_1876.JPG
IMG_1875.JPG


AND, REEF DIAPERS !!!!!!!! WAHOO!!!!!!! Gift of TIME! and my babies get clean without effort on my part! Here is my newly installed Reef Diaper in my new sump! Everyone needs these for when you just are too swamped to clean your socks but your fish need you to do something - WAHOO!!
IMG_1880.JPG


HOLY COW! I just realized despite babysitting as a teenager, my younger sister having six kids (gave birth to 5 of them), I've somehow escaped ever changing a BABY DIAPER ... but I have changed my fish's REEF DIAPER! LOL - ROFL !!!! When I was in high school, my mom had to show up at my babysitting job to change the baby's diaper. OH MY GOSH - I have to go call my mom and tell her I have REEF DIAPERS in my new tank - she'll think its a HOOT!

Thank you @12humuhumu21 !!!! (hugs)

I am so excited you liked them! It was easy to get gifts for you. You answered the questionnaire awesome so I had plenty of I formation but I felt like if I knew you better as a person I could do a better job. Again I’m so glad you liked them and Merry Christmas!!!!

Glad you like them! I may have gone a little over budget but that’s okay :) I have never tried that coffee before so hopefully it’s good!
