Secret Santa

My son did this when he was in primary school. 

Wikipedia says:  members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift….. okay…. So that’s the way we do our sister/brother exchange then.

But that’s not exactly how they did it at my son’s school.  They had to buy a gift or gifts to a person (anonymously) and give them over a period of time.  Let’s say they had 10 days.. they could either give just 1 gift or more and give them during that period of  time.  My son received a burned Christmas dvd one day, a candy cane another day and one other trinket.  They were really small items they could buy or preferably make.  I like this secret santa variation much better!

Ideas for 10 days of secret santa:

Grinch poop
Reindeer food
Snowman soup
Candy cane
Candy bar with Christmas wrapper
Burned Christmas dvd
Nail polish

Donut seeds

Soda bottle


Lottery ticket

Have fun!


  1. I love secret Santa! Haven't done it in years, thanks for the reminder. Maybe this year...

  2. I love these ideas where you pair a small item with a tag that has a cute saying. There are so many ideas that play on the words of the item as well.
