Even more Secret Santa mischief

Okay, this is the last post about my Secret Santa adventures for 2008. So on Day 3, I gave Erika a $5 Starbucks card and our two most recent issues of Game Informer to peruse with her hot tasty beverage (yes, she said she liked video games). She also said she like action/martial arts movies so on Day 4, I put up the Original himself, Bruce Lee:

And I left a gift on her desk:

What's inside? Oh, it's just something I put together:

I kind of boo-booed the iron-on but at least she'll know it was hand-crafted with heart and affection.

And as it turned out, another Secret Santa was going to be absent at the end of the week, so I volunteered to deliver his gift. On Day 4, he had pretzels for his Secret recipient (because he found out she likes pretzels). So, of course, I asked if it was okay if I crafted it up a bit. He was fine with it. So I put together a theme, which included a grocery bag turned pooping reindeer:

And of course:

the pretzels:

Sigh. It's almost a let down on Day 5 when you know Secret Santa is coming to an end. On Day 5, I gave Erika a book, Forbidden Knowledge: 101 Things Not Everyone Should Know How to Do, and a DVD, Brick, with gift receipts of course. And Erika totally guessed I was her Secret Santa on her first try, despite my efforts to throw her off my trail. Nonetheless, I still had a great time being her Secret Santa (as well as assisting other Secret Santas).

I hope we do Secret Santa again next year!
