Secret Santa Gifts
Secret Santa. I’ve never heard of Yankee Swap or White Elephant, but a similar game known worldwide is Secret Santa. A not to be missed tradition. It is the king of Christmas gift-giving amongst work colleagues, family, and friends.
Secret Santa is a game that keeps alive the mystery, suspense, and surprise of holiday gifting. By setting a budget of between £5.00 and £10.00 creatively, ingenuity and imagination add to the excitement of the gift.
Like many Christmas traditions, they are many individual quirks as to how to play the game. However, the main thing is to keep it light-hearted and fun.
We can trace the history of giving undercover presents back to the Scandinavian tradition of knocking on someone’s door, throwing a parcel inside when it opens, then running away. Known as or knocking Christmas. Some credit St Nicholas with the instigating the practice; as he is renowned as a giver of charity both publicly and privately.
How to Play Secret Santa: Traditional Game Rules
The most straightforward way of playing is for everyone to wrap a gift and anonymously put it in a box. One person is chosen at random to be the Secret Santa. Their task is to allocate the wrapped present making sure that no one receives their original one. The receiver has to guess which member of the group is their Secret Santa. It’s a holiday classic where the guessing is as much fun as receiving the gift.
A slightly more complicated version is to ask members of the group in general what gift they would like. They would put their name and preferred gift into a secret box for someone else to select. Once selected, that person would buy the gift.
After the group has bought their gifts, everyone sits down together, and the receiver tries to guess who choose their present.
We all love about Secret Santa. It’s the joy of knowing someone is thinking about you. It’s the thrill of opening something but, more than that is the magic of connection. That somebody has taken the time and trouble to think about you and treat you to something.
