  1. The safest bet would be the gift cards since they can use it to shop for themselves. Lol. But luckily most secret Santas that I’ve joined have a theme so it’s easy to look for gifts.

  2. This is so helpful. Secret santa parties always make our holidays difficult because it’s tricky to buy for someone you work with that you don’t REALLY know well. We’ve had a few hits and a LOT of misses. This certainly helps!

  3. These are some great ideas! I always to try to purchase something personal, but when the crazy holiday craze hits sometimes getting the first thing you find is just easier, but I love this list. Definitely keeping so that I have something to help me out this year!
