Secret Santa

by Daniela Riccio on November 30, 2011

I have to admit I like Secret Santa gift giving concept. It always ends up in one big laughing fit with your colleagues. It also gives you an excuse to buy something fun, naughty or just plain hysterical.

The laughing factor is always the best part. The worst is when you have to buy a gift for someone you don’t like in the office then that can be testing! Luckily, I have not had that problem. Have you?

What is Secret Santa?

Secret Santa in some countries is called Kris Kringle but the concept is the same. It’s one of the more popular holiday games and is a fun and easy way for a group of friends, family members or work colleagues to exchange gifts.

The basic concept of the Secret Santa game is simple. All of the participants’ names are placed into a hat or a box and mixed up. Each person then chooses one name from the box, but doesn't tell anyone which name was picked. That’s the secret… don’t tell anyone!

When the Secret Santa wraps their gift all they need to do is simply add the recipients name but doesn't indicate whom the present is from. Remember, most of the fun is in the secrecy.

Then organise a place, a date and a time for everyone to get together for the giving, unwrapping and guessing competition.  Each recipient must guess who their Secret Santa is. If they can't guess, their Secret Santa eventually confesses.

So now how to find gifts that are fun, naughty, hysterical and affordable..........
