Rebekah says:
When you send something as a gift, is it anonymous or is your name on the packing slip? I know prices and whatnot aren't listed if you indicate the product is a gift, but what about the buyer's name? I want to send a gift, but I don't want the person to know it was me who sent it.

"Spydy Loc says:
sounds creepy to be sending anonymous gifts....besides who'd want a box showing up with their name on it and no idea who its from "

If they were doing a Secret Santa kinda thing, it wouldn't necessarily be creepy. Also, a loved one with a grudge might not open a gift if they know it's from someone their mad at. If it's a great gift, it might soften their heart after seeing it.

I've never sent anonymous gifts through the mail, but I've participated in Secret Santa. I HAVE been tempted to send books on good leadership skills to a former aggravating boss. :) I managed to resist the urge since it probably would have just gotten me in trouble.

Someone is a little paranoid. Good God... It's for a gift exchange for crying out loud. Like an anonymous gift exchange. "Scaring" or "making the recipient feel uncomfortable" is the last thing on my mind, and I resent the implication that I'm a stalker.

Rebekah says:
Thank you. I think you're only person who actually got what I'm trying to do. Although it isn't for Christmas, I'm trying to send a gift for something similar to a Secret Santa exchange. Hence the reason for wanting it to be anonymous.

There are also people who want to give to others out of kindness and don't want to be acknowledged for the deed, or want to help when they know the recipient might be uncomfortable accepting "charity" when they can not afford it. I would like to send something to an acquaintance who has no idea who I am because I heard her speak at our church and she mentioned something she had loved as a child. I was very touched by her talk and would like to "pay it forward" with a gift, but out of kindness, not for recognition...

AND, I think it would be creepier to send a gift WITH my name on it since she doesn't know me even if I was thanking her. One can always add a thoughtful note without signing that makes it clear that it is not a weird gift, but one from the heart...

I think that this is a lovely idea. I bet if you give the gift to her via the pastor she will still love it!

I wondered about this, too. It would be coming from amazon, after all, so it would have amazon as the sender on the return label anyway. There's no reason amazon couldn't provide an option to not show the sender's information on the invoice.

K.A. - You might just write her a thank you note, rather than a gift? I know it's not the same thing, but as a teacher I always loved a note from a student.

The grinchy, "stalker" accusations on this thread make me grieve for the human condition.
