The best holiday of the year has arrived and it is time to play Secret Santa! For many of us away from family, it is a great opportunity to have some fun with our friends and plan a gift exchange. We are already playing at Spiible and here we share some basic game rules to start:
1. Make a cool group
Play at work and/or with your close friends, invite as many people as possible to make it more fun! Write down all the players' names and place them into a bowl. Everyone picks one and keeps it as a secret until the end!
2. Set a limit price and a gift-giving date
It could be $20 or $30, whatever everyone agrees on how much to spend on the gift and save the date. Here at Spiible we are having our own Secret Santa BBQ to celebrate!
3. Give a hint along the way
Put a smile on your secret friend by leaving a chocolate or something sweet before the giving date. Remember the sugar-free options if your friend is going on a diet ;)
4. Pick the best gift
We all have different friends: The veggie, the hipster, the nerdy.. So, knowing the likes and dislikes of your secret friend helps to choose the perfect and unique gift. Make it memorable! Also a nice wrapping is important: There are many DIY tutorials on Youtube, or you can ask your flatmate that recently finished the online course of wrapping gifts to help you.
5. Exchange gifts
On your gift-giving date, it´s time to make it fun! Bring to mind a joke or a funny moment about your secret friend to make everyone guess! Once revealed, take together a cool picture!
