Today's the "deadline" for posting, so don't start getting worried until the end of the week - a LOT of stuff's in the postal system at the moment!

ok hopefully it will be all good then. warning to all though dont fall for the missed delivary scam its a note with a premium number on from I think its PDS if you call its 350 quid on your phone bill apperntly it happens every Xmas so only ring the number if its a proper postal company.

Sent mine Saturday morning, received mine too :) I very carefully opened a little bit to see if it was wrapped, it isn't but not given anything away. It's under my tree!

i dont think its surprising at all, when you send an item through the post it should always show sender as well as recipient.

if you sent to me or i sent to you, it would be easy to work out as we have met in real life and know where in the country the other lives and their real name.

some people on here have met loads more rg'ers in real life than i have, done infinitely more trades etc

Main reason for peoples inklings is the fact that someone receives their gift the day after someone said they posted their gift, on the thread. Personally think it would be better for everyone if the buyer just let the organiser know via pm that they sent their gift. It would avoid any obvious guess for the recipient.

I knew my buyer because they commented about posting it the day before I received it. That and their name was on the jiffy bag lol
