Are you having an office Secret Santa or a Christmas day Secret Santa with family and friends? A Secret Santa is a great idea if you are a group of people that is too large for everyone to buy an individual gift for. It is also a nice way to ensure that everyone in the office or at the party receives one gift.
How to organise a Secret Santa
Write the names of each person in the group on small pieces of paper. Fold up each piece and put into a bag or sock, or whatever. Then write a list of all the people in the group. When you draw out the first piece of paper, open it up and put that name against the first name on the list.
Do the same for the second piece of paper drawn out until you have names against all the people on the list. If you pull out the same name as the person on the list simply put this piece of paper back in the bag and try again. (You can’t buy a gift for yourself!)
Next, notify each person of their Secret Santa recipient. Set an upper price limit, say, £5 or £10. Each person wraps their chosen gift and adds the name of the recipient only. Everyone opens that on a set day, perhaps at a Christmas party. The fun is guessing who bought your gift!
