How to Plan Secret Santa Gift Exchanges at the Office


Nothing gets people in the mood for a holiday like a party, or any kind of get-together. Secret Santas can be a lot of fun in the office because it gets people into the spirit of the holidays. You would be surprised by how many people will participate because it is something fun and simple to do in the office and doesn't cost a lot of money.

Things You'll Need

  • Invitations Sign-up sheet Rules sheet
  • Get your secret Santa idea approved with your manager, or someone who is in charge of events at your office. Make sure nothing was already planned and check whether there are any rules limiting or prohibiting these kinds of things.

  • Prepare an invitation to participate. There may be some people in your office who may not want to participate for various reasons, so you will want to make sure it is on a volunteer basis. If someone is required to participate, he may ruin the fun of the game.

  • Draw names for everyone. Make sure you set a deadline to sign up before drawing names. Tell everyone who their secret Santa is in privacy, because the whole fun of the game is not knowing who has drawn your name. If someone is unsure who her Santa is, make sure you let her know.

  • Set a limit of how much money each person can spend on his secret Santa. It's never fun if someone spends $50 on one person but another only spends $10. Set a limit that is affordable for most people but still allows them to get something nice.

  • Plan a small event where the secret Santas will be revealed. It's always fun to have an afternoon potluck where everyone can get together and exchange gifts.
