MSA Secret Santa Thread

This year @Lindsey-MSA organized a Secret Santa gift exchange here on MSA. How fun was it to curate your own subscription box for your Santa?

Here’s the thread to post your unboxing of your gifts and a chance to show off your goodies!

Share the love!

Received a palette? Show us pics of your new look! Hair stuff? Show us that new 'dew! New candle? Post a pic of it lighting up your home.

Let’s see those boxes and share our gratitude for each other!

I missed this post and already opened up my gifts and put many to use!!
My secret santa was really generous! I hope I am remembering everything…
I received La Vita sunglasses, a facial massager, a foot file and socks, a comb set, and a blue Glass Ladder clutch.
I hope she liked what I sent. I tried to send an item for each of the categories she specifically mentioned in her wants.

I love participating in these gift exchanges, because I love putting together the package(s), and plus you really never know what you’re gonna get. I actually saw the Creme Shop Super Shower Set at Marshall’s and was going to get it, but now I don’t have to! :heart_eyes: I’m also really excited about the Mario Badescu set! The sub item that my SS threw in there was the Noir Leopard Scrunchies.

Can’t wait for more themed gift exchanges!

Also… not sure why the photos are uploading sideways…send help!
Note: figured it out, but lazy to reupload

I thought my gift to my recipient was good until I received mine! I feel like she put me to shame but I will definitely step up my game next time! Everything was wrapped individually and very thoughtfully chosen. I received some local treats and things that were similar to my follows. Funny enough, my favorite item is a small votive candle which smells unbelievable…it’s right next to my bed!

@tinacara, I felt the same way when I opened mine. I worked hard to make the one I sent special but the one I received was even better!

I’m a little late to the party as I just joined the forum, but here’s my Secret Santa share:

Everything arrived to me beautifully wrapped, so one photo shows that - it took a lot of restraint on my part to wait to rip into everything so I could take the photo, lol. And the second photo is the full reveal.

Lisa, my Swaps Secret Santa, sent such a generous mix of fun and useful and attractive items. And snacks - who doesn’t love getting snacks? There was pretty much something of everything - home decor, beauty, pen (the cutest cat pen!) and notebook, candles, etc. etc. Lucky me! I’m so appreciative of Lisa’s generosity.
