How to choose the best Secret Santa gift

  • Keep it within the budget. The budget rules of Secret Santa are there for a reason – don't go overboard.
  • Use your resources to find out about the recipient. If it's someone you work with, you could ask their manager or team mates about their interests. If it's family, maybe ask their partner or parents for clues.
  • It doesn't have to be the Greatest Gift Ever. This is Secret Santa, not your Mother's 50th birthday.
  • When in serious doubt, you can't go wrong with the following options: Wine, chocolates and candles.

Good luck! If you have anything to add about Secret Santa, please leave it in the comments.
