**Party Game: Presents! Can't Post

Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo! In their honor, here is a Word Scramble - so sharpen your wits (and, if needed, get out your books, but see if you can do this without "peeking")!

We all know that after The Party, Bilbo left special presents to be given to certain Hobbits. Do you remember what they were? Have fun unscrambling the letters to find each Hobbit's present!


1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE

3. And also a woolen SATCATOWI

4. For Adelard Took, an RUMLABEL

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex RIMROR

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-SEAC

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of Old SWAYDRIN.

9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT

10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOPOS

OK! Small but quite minor peeks. :( [In reply to] Can't Post

1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE –ointment (To soothe a Gaffer’s joints.)

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE –potatoes (To soothe a Gaffer’s palate.)

3. And also a woolen SATCATOWI –waistcoat (and living long and prospering.)

4. For Adelard Took, an RUMLABEL –Umbrella (Lobelia’s supplier?)

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET –basket (AKA Ann Landers)

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex RIMROR –mirror (-on the wall. Who’s the fairest…)

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-SEAC –book-case (A not TOO obtuse hint at Hugo’s relentless book-hoarding.)

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of Old SWAYDRIN. –Old Winyards (Rory liked a good glass of cheer and ‘toasted’ Bilbo after a few swigs.)

9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT –ink bottle (Milo didn’t respond to letters? Bad Milo!))

10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOPOS -spoons (She got the dig, but took the spoons anyhoo!)

Oh, and thank you dernwyn. A kick for sure.

But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

Presents [In reply to] Can't Post

Gaffer had 1. Ointment 2. Potatoes & 3. Waistcoat but missed out on the unrepeatable bargain offer of the day, namely a Free Implied Snide Comment With Every Present.
4. Umbrella, because he never returned them
5. Waste paper basket for an indefatigable writer of unwanted advice
6. Convex Mirror, for a vain young lady
7. Bookcase, for all the books he borrowed and never gave back
8. Old Winyards - and, possibly, no snide comment (unless Bilbo was implying that Rory was too fond of lifting his elbow?)
9. Ink bottle, because Milo never answered letters
10. Spoons - well, we all know what Bilbo was alluding to here! So did Lobelia.
