I love the idea of Secret Santa’s in big groups, and I just decided that my high school seminary Bible Study class is going to do it, so I had my fab designer Jessika whip up some fun gift tags that anyone can use!

Secret Santa Gift Tags for Christmas and tips for an effective gift exchange

If you’ve got a Secret Santa going on, or want to start one, here are a few tips I’ve found helpful.  

This post: Secret Santa ideas $1 or less was great, and led me to a few other resources.

I decided that for our class, we would do “free” or $1 or less. The $1 dollar store as a ToN of cute stuff, socks, ties, ornaments, treat containers, that I thought it’d be easy enough. I also decided that with 11 boys and 14 girls in our class, the boys would all choose from a bowl of girl names. I thought boy buying for boy would be awkward (and less productive), but a few girls can buy for each other.

Ideas I shared with my class:

  • Holiday Treat (cute Christmas tins at $1 store)
  • $1 frame with Christmas printable quote found online
  • $1 store tie, socks, reindeer antlers, etc.
  • Draw the persons name in a decorative way
  • Christmas Ornament ($1 store) or handmade

In the research, I’ve found two tips to keep in mind:

  • Tip #1: Don’t go over the set amount, people feel awkward and guilty that they didn’t. Stick to the set price for fairness.
  • Tip #2: Don’t be the lame person that doesn’t do anything, that’s no fun for anyone, and will make someone very sad and wonder why they didn’t get gifts.

It’s just a fun thing to do at holiday time, so have fun with it!
