Since I am new(er) the forum it was nerve racking for me, I'd build a cart, think about it and then clear it out. Go back to reading some more, go back build a cart and repeat the process. I did this a few times, finally I just ordered with hopes of it being something that can/will be used and productive for the recipient.

I'm not new to the forum and I still do that haha.

I made my order earlier today from Tacklewarehouse and as soon as I get it I will drop in one extra surprise and send it off. I tried to buy things that the person I was buying for mentioned he either liked or wanted but wasn't available in his area. I also picked up something that I think will be handy for him. We will see how it goes I guess

Bryce if you're sending out those dang packets of grape Kool-Aid you will surely get an ear full.
Oh, I sent mine out yesterday, parcel post it'll take 10-14 days. I love mailing early and making 'em wait.

Received mine today, and will try to get it out tomorrow or Friday, but it may not get out until Saturday or Monday because of my work schedule.

Received mine today. It was in an Amazon box (a place I buy a lot of stuff from) so it took me a quick brain check to realize that it was probably from the gift exchange. A quick rattle of the box confirmed it

Mine is in the mail tomorrow; packed up and ready to go. Excited for everyone to get theirs so we can see what's inside!

After sitting on the porch for three days, watching for my UPS or FedEX guy to no avail, today the USPS truck pulled up and my mailman stuck a brown box and some junk mail in my mail box. Didn't pay too much attention, then the lightbulb lit up. Yipieeee it's arrived - and the curiosity is KILLING me. When can we open? Huh, huh, when, please, soon, when? A person my age should not get this excited.

Question...do you guys usually put a return addy on your package? It would kill the "who is it from" but I really don't want it to get lost in the mail for some reason. Thoughts?

I put one on mine just because I'd rather have it come back to me than end up in the hands of some undeserving ne'er do well.(there was a ret add on the one I rec'd but since I'm only familiar with a handful of peoples actual names it meant nothing to me)

BTW I have a trip planned for Sat am and I am taking my package with me and am going to open it when I get there. Further I am going to fish with anything inside that catches my fancy and take a pic of it hanging from the first victoms lips and post it Sat pm. If I'm jumping the gun.....so be it!

I always put a return address, I would much rather the person know it was from than it get lost.

As far as opening them, it's really up to you guys. At Christmas, we always wait until Christmas, or at least until everyone has their's. Do as you please.

Part of the fun is having something you're not supposed to get into...lol

I think I will hold off.

Regular/priority mail insists on a return address.
