A great alternative to the traditional Secret Santa. Everyone has a hand in planning a surprise for one person. Set up a Whatsapp group or an email chain with everyone except the person you’re planning the gift for. Pool your ideas about their interests and then decide on something special. It’s a great way to get to know people better, and working together should result in a gift they actually want.
This could last the entire holiday season and beyond, if you fancy… Everyone picks a name out of the (Santa) hat – instead of buying your chosen name a gift, you look out for a chance to do something nice for them. It could be anything, like doing their work washing up for a week, or topping up their supply of biscuits and favourite tea, or a post it note saying something nice when they’re getting stressed.
I hope you’ve found some inspo from this selection or perhaps a new idea for this year’s annual gift swap.
