Friday Lifestyles: How to Throw the Perfect Secret Santa Party

A Secret Santa party is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. It’s also a nice way to save time and money. Whether throwing a Secret Santa party at work or with your friends and family at home, the gift exchange ensures that everyone receives a present so you don’t have to go overboard on holiday shopping.
TopShelf Clothes | Secret Santa

Follow our steps for throwing the perfect Secret Santa Party:

  1. The drawing of names: The traditional gathering of participants to pick names from a hat can be difficult to coordinate with people’s busy schedules. Assigned Secret Santa’s tend to mysteriously work out best for the person in charge… But now there’s Boogspace. The site involves a quick and easy 3-step process that allows you to create a gift exchange group, make individual wishlists, and then email the assigned Secret Santas without revealing who has whom. It is a great way to save some time, plus, the optional wishlists can provide gift inspiration if you are unsure of what to buy your recipient.
  2. Set a dollar limit: Decide what a reasonable amount is to spend on gifts so that each participant buys and receives a similar priced goodie.
  3. The Gift Exchange: On the day of your Secret Santa party, have everyone place their wrapped gifts (with just the recipient’s name) in one pile. That way when it comes time to open gifts, your guests can guess who had whom.

Still need gift ideas? We love Glamour’s “30 Gifts Under $30″ for secret santa presents. And don’t forget to visit our Holiday Inspirations Pinterest board as we continue to pin our favorite gifts and decor ideas this season.
