I haven't received my secret santa card :( yesterday I went to the post office and there wasn't anything. I'm thinking the service isn't really good during the Christmas season before I start thinking my match hasn't sent it.

Well, at this point I didn't expect to receive anything. It's already been over a month since I sent out my present, and everyone else too. But yesterday morning I got a very nice surprise at the door - a package from Germany! I was so eager to open it as soon as I found out it was a gift from my Secret Santa. A pretty-looking package; so neatly wrapped, wow!

IMG_1664.JPG


The top part contained a CD of Coldplay live at the Casino de Paris in 2014! It also had the setlist written down in pretty, decorative handwriting (there's a little typo that dates it at 2016 haha) - not to mention the Christmas napkin / serviette it was wrapped in :)

IMG_1665.JPG
IMG_1672.JPG


Of course it was a really good concert that I just had to upload it to YouTube :p

Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/kMm35W51IKU


Next, as I was opening the box, I noticed a very interesting smell. It was very perfume-y, soap-y, and bath-y type of smell. Also a bunch of glittery stars came flying out from everything - I actually had to control myself when unpackaging haha.

Next was some delicious-looking vegan chocolate omg. I haven't tried it yet, but I'll get back to you on this one!

IMG_1667.JPG


That's not all! There was a miniature fuzzy reindeer, a yellow XYLOBAND from Wembley, an orange LOVE button (one of my favorite colors!), some star confetti, not one but three(!) cards with sweet notes in the back. AND there was A GORGEOUS PICTURE OF GUY :cool:. Wow!

IMG_1670.JPG


There was one other thing, a "Bath Bomb" which was giving off the smell. My match says that I need to put it in my bathtub and I will see a "Coldception" :D It is also vegan and not tested on animals! :) I didn't want to take it out of the package for the picture because it's a little powdery, but I will have to try it in the bathtub one of these days and I'll get back to you!

So what is my reaction to all of this?

Thank you so much, @BuckinParadise! I was really only expecting a single card but you spoiled me with many, many things! And all the gifts were exactly perfect for me, I couldn't have asked for anything better. This is just one of those rare time where I am entirely 100% satisfied with absolutely everything and even though I was a bit stressed out that day, it really made my day! "You make me feel like I'm alive again!" :D I wanted everyone to see all these gifts because I want them to know what a wonderful, thoughtful, and amazing person you are. I think it's really cool that you've been a Coldplay fan since 2002 and I feel so honored to have you as my Secret Santa match. I hope you Had Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and I wish you an amazing New Year ahead! :heart:

Dear guy 42 , I am soooooooooooooooooo happy you finally received your package !! I was really worried it took much too long and watched this space since Christmas whenever there was time asking myself if it got lost, what would have been awful ( cause I forgot to take pics as Santa suggested !! if it wouldnt have arrived ).
And much more happier it made you sooo happy ! So itcame to you at the right time :)
And yes I am sure you deserve it !
You made me laugh withe your reply here :D . So funny !
And wow then I choosed the right colour of the Love Button :)

OMG I wrote 2016 instead of 2014 , I am sorry :(
Btw I am writing 2016 now at work very often instead of 2017. And on Dec 6th when I was remembering the Ghost Stories concert at Munich I wrote all day long 06 / 12 / 2014 , haha :)

My Christmas wasn't sooo happy. I cried a lot cause I missed my boyfriend ( and I won't :( ) who broke up with me in July ..and I was really happy I could go back to work, New Years Eve was much more happier and NEW Year started amazing although work is very very much at the moment angd getting a cold right now .

I am excited what you will say about the chocolate and the bathbomb :)
Enjoy !!!
And a very happy 2017 to you and everyone else here ! Good things are coming our way !!

And so sorry for my poor English :(

Hey @BuckinParadise sorry for the delayed reply. Don't worry, your English is fine :). I'm sorry about your breakup :( hope you get better. And the date typo? When you give a great gift like that, everything is forgiven :D.

I had the chance to try the chocolate. Once I started, I couldn't stop, and now it's all gone :D. I loved it. I also tried out the bath bomb. Just taking a bath was cool, but this made it more fun haha.

Ahhhh - there's nothing worse than an unhappy Christmas because of a broken relationship. But I'm so glad to hear you're getting over it and starting off a good new year. ......... and... your English is fine ! You put me to shame as I can only speak one language !
