I think its quite cool to know who sent the item, especially if they send something particularly cool
I;d go with the not attempted option haha the postal services get really slow this time of year. normaly if its a signed delivary the post man may just leave it with a neigbor if tehy are willing to sign for it which i wish they wouldnt do as sometimes i miss signed delivarys by say 5 minutes knock on a nieghbors and theve gone out already. and as for knowing who sent it i like that too as you normaly end up getting to know that person better afterwards.
just hoping mine all comes tommorow so i can stop waiting in good luck to all using royal fail like me to send but bear in mind that silly advert with simon bird promises xmas delivary if you post by the 23rd

they are really saying that? the only way for something to be delivered on christmas eve that was posted on the 23rd is with one particular method that if it isnt posted by 1pm the next day they refund the cost of postage.

and that costs about £7 for a parcel the size of 1 md game

Mine arrived and has been taken out of its postage wrap and is awaiting its unwrapping on christmas day. I did open the outer very carefully , just in case it wasnt wrapped inside.

I have sent my RGSS and received what I think must be a lovely parcel wrapped in red paper with white Christmas trees. It's nestled snugly under the tree. Cheers all 8) merry Christmas

Mine arrived today. I assumed it'd be giftwrapped inside its postage box, but when I opened it it wasn't. I had to close the box up real quick before I could see exactly what it was :P

I hope my giftee has received his.

Think I received mine today, many thanks to whoever it was. The courier's idea of a safe place was by my front door in the rain! Luckily everything inside appears to be ok
