Any gift mishaps?

 Looking at my daughter's gifts, I realized that she didn't have that "Wow" gift that her siblings do. So I went back to the drawing board and found something better. Instead of exchanging, I decided to take her gift from Santa and save it for her birthday next year and use one of her others as a Santa gift. As I was wrapping last night, I realized the one I had chosen to be from Santa was one her brother and sister had helped me with!  Close call.

Have you had any gift mishaps this year?

Well my husband had my gift delivered without gift wrap, so I know what it is. But we weren't supposed to be doing gifts so it was a total surprise. Damn him.

My husband ordered my gift online..he payed through PayPal. PayPal sent me a message telling me something was purchased and the name of the company. Don't know why because the PayPal account is in my husbands name but I access the account from my app all the time so I guess that's why. He bought me perfume.

Not really...the only issue we had was a delayed order from Barnes and Noble for a book series I ordered for DS.  It did come in time but the mail man put the package on our wide open front porch in the RAIN.  I was livid.  Luckily the books were wrapped in plastic packaging and are okay, otherwise I would have been even more upset.

Everything is going smoothly so far. We've done gifts with SIL and her DH and my great aunt so far and everything has gone well.

A gift that my cousin got for my dd (20y/o) was misplaced. No biggie~ he felt really bad but told her maybe he'll find it by Easter ;)
