Struggling With Secret Santa?

It’s that time of year. When Christmas cheer is in the air, mistletoe is being hung, and you have no idea what to get your person for secret Santa. Everyone is excited to do a surprise gift swap, but once you pick your recipient, you have no idea what that person wants. Well, don’t fret. Whisked has some great tips on what to do when you don’t know what to get someone for the holiday season. We also have an extensive line of cookies, pies, and gift boxes that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Be Thoughtful

All anyone at a secret Santa event wants to know is that you thought about them when purchasing their gift. You can consider things such as: does this person have any pets, or are they planning any trips that they might need things for? Also think about questions like does this person have any allergies, or do they enjoy sweets? These are great questions to get the brain rolling and the secret Santa ideas flowing. You may be stumped now, but as you ask yourself questions about your gift recipient you'll realize the answer is only one click away.

Make It Personal

When trying to think of the perfect gift, try to personalize it to fit your person’s interests and needs. This could be engraving their name on the present or picking their favorite flavors when choosing a food. Small touches of personalization go a long way in people’s eyes and hearts. Don’t be afraid to be sentimental, especially when you want to put in a little extra effort towards that person’s gift. Showing emotion and that you have been listening puts a smile on everyone’s face.

Keep It A Secret

Our last tip is to keep it a secret. It’s called SECRET Santa for a reason. The real fun of secret Santa is keeping who you have secret, so keep it to yourself. Gifts are much more meaningful when you can confidently say that you had the idea for the gift yourself. There are no rules for secret Santa. You can be funny, serious, or sweet.
