Who was your Secret Santa? You're allowed to tell now.


I want to try the cookies on the left, behind the red package. How are they? Let us know when you try them!

I don't know who my Secret Santa is. I did not see a name on the package, just a return address. Secret Santa please reveal yourself. Thanks!

Haven't tried anything but the cookies yet, but they are soooooooo good. Sorry about the counter clutter.

I haven't tried the Hot Mix yet but it is an indian snack mix. I have tried the cookies and candy bars which were delicious. I also tried the Hildiram's spicy wheat flour snacks which are great also.

Yay! I'm so glad you like the package, AeryFairy! It was fun shopping for someone non-American. And isn't the peanut butter amazing? It almost didn't make it into the box!

The peanut butter is SO good! I'm trying my best to ration it, but it's just so nice on everything... I stuck a lump of it in a bowl with some cut-up bananas and nuked it in the microwave.
I'm very glad it made it into the box

Here's my kitty investigating all of the amazing goodies that AHIMSA sent.


Thank you again!! What an incredible box. I'm going away for the weekend and I'm taking some of the snacks with me

The book is a book of photographs of R.E.M., by this guy who traveled with them over a 6 year period of time. They are one of my favorite bands so that was really awesome

So far these photos are looking amazing and I would be omitting my true opinion if I did not admit they are making me feel like a really crap Secret Santa! I must be a poor judge of budgeting $25. I also didn't send many food items... I'm thinking I greatly misunderstood the Secret Santa concept.

I'm sure you sent a great package! Last time I participated, I sent out only maybe 4 or 5 things, but they were all locally made and they were expensive. This time, I'm sending more things and they're probably a little more commonplace, but I picked them all out to suit my recipient's stated tastes.... I think no matter what, as long as you do your best and everything's vegan, your recipient should be really happy.

You're welcome! So pleased you like the stuff. The box of tea is from a Spanish shop in Berkeley, let me know what you think. I included samples of things, 'cause it's so much fun to try new things!

Don't feel bad at all. Part of the fun of all this is the variety of it all! I feel the need for a qualifier on my stuff: I am especially skilled in getting a good deal. That book, worth like $30? I got it at the DOLLAR store.

my package got here yesterday and i just got to open it and investigate. i love everything. i'm very intrigued by the avocados and will be trying them this weekend.
in case it's poorly visible in the picture, the box everything came in had some pictures inside that were the first thing i saw and i thought that was a lovely idea

but, i'm not sure who my santa is. i have yet to match the name to a username. if you're it, let me know
