Secret Santa Gift Ideas 2021

October 20, 2021 - 2 mins read

Let’s start with the big question – What is Secret Santa?

Well Secret Santa, also known as Kris Kringle, is a popular way of exchanging Christmas Gifts in a group!
How it works: Everyone is assigned a member of the group (usually at random) and they only buy that person a gift. When the group gathers for the holidays the presents are handed out in a way that keeps the buyer of the gift anonymous. It’s a great way to exchange gifts with work colleagues, large families and groups who want to keep Christmas low cost, because typically a budget is also assigned so everyone buys, and receives, a gift that is of the same value.
If you’re planning a Secret Santa or Kris Kringle gift exchange this Christmas we’ve got you covered! Check out our suggestions for great Secret Santa Gift Ideas to suit every person and every budget!
