How I view my Secret Santa | Naperville Lifestyle Photographer

Who doesn’t LOVE surprises!! – I always have and I always will. There is something just so thrilling about getting a surprise present. It doesn’t really matter what it is? As long as it is a surprise.

When Heidi from my blog circle mentioned doing a secret santa for our little blog circle group of photographer friends, I think I must have responded “yes” even before she finished typing. And I think my blog circle friends all must love surprises because everyone signed up within the hour!!! 🙂 🙂

Christmas Tree with Lights and Blokeh

As part of the gift giving process, we used Elfster. We don’t know who is who’s secret santa and are using this month’s blog circle post for the big reveal!!! – How Exciting! – I cannot wait to read everyone’s post along the blog circle.

My secret santa was highly efficient – my gift arrived really early and I had to really control myself to not open it ahead of time.

When I saw the little note attached to the gift box…I was in love! – It really didn’t matter what was inside…my secret santa had taken the time to read my Memorable Jaunts Website, specifically my About me section and took notes. She then went shopping and got me something that was “totally me”. My note said “use it to enjoy chai while camping” 🙂 – my two favorite things covered!

I love my new camping kettle….It is green with a stainless steel base, it can be used on a camp stove, on an electric stove or a gas stove!…and best of all, it folds up nice and tidy – perfect for camping….Thank you so much Marlo, my secret santa!…This is just the perfect gift for me 🙂 :).
