Secret Santa fun

Secret Santa fun

Did you know that Secret Santa was thought to stem from an American called Larry Stewart? Who through his Christmas related philanthropy of mainly handing cash out anonymously to those less fortunate during the festive period, received the nickname ‘Kansas City’s Secret Santa’?

It is now a standard festive practice of most workplaces. Here are some important tips to remember when doing a workplace Secret Santa:

  • Set a price limit – Remember all agree to the same price limit, it is meant to be a bit of fun. No one likes the smarty pants who brings in some expensive perfume, when everyone else has stuck to the rules and gone for socks!
  • Don’t be afraid to be silly – Sometimes joke gifts are part of the fun. Trying NOT to get a particular gift is almost as fun as trying to snag a really good one

Secret Santa can be a fun way to bring your employees together and finish off a successful year in the workplace.
