5 gifts that you can give for Secret Santa Game this Christmas

It’s that time of year when people around the world are in the party mood and are having Christmas functions. In India, we don’t have a long holiday but our HR makes sure that we don’t feel left alone from the dazzling and colourful Santa world.  They let the employees of their company play Secret Santa which is full of suspense, mystery and a surprise of holiday gifting.

What is Secret Santa Game?

The Secret Santa game is played mostly in schools, large families and workplaces in foreign countries but in India, it is only limited to the workplace. This game offers the chance of receiving and giving of gifts at a low price to participants, anonymously or otherwise.

Ahead of the day when presents are given out, names of all the participants are written on slips of paper separately. All the paper slips are folded and then put in a Christmas hat. Each participant draws the name of a person in secret whom they are entitled to buy a gift. In most of the cases, a budget is set within which people have to buy gifts and then mark them with the name of the recipient, but not the gift-giver.
