The point of Secret Santa is that it's supposed to be fun (remember Installment One: Secret Santa is Supposed to be Fun?), and by taking a more casual, lighthearted approach to things, it is fun!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that every gift you give cost $1, but the point of this exercise is to prove that you don't need to spend a lot to get a positive result.
Nothing says Christmas quite like a Christmas tree, and what better way to start the season by giving a shiny new ornament for trimming said tree?
Ever have those times when everyone wants to play Gin Rummy or Spades, but NO ONE can find a deck of cards? The Dollar Tree had a whole section of nightlights, so if your giftee isn't interested in sports, you've got plenty more options there. How many times have you had to strap down some awkward, oversized instinct purchase without the right tools? Ok, so this is probably the first gender-specific gift here (although I don't want to speak too soon.
I covered some thin cardboard (from a spaghetti box) in burlap ribbon (the same kind I used for my Chevron Bunting and Beach Scavenger Hunt, actually). The Dollar Tree had a huge selection of Crossword puzzle, Sudoku, Word Find, and Trivia books. A homemade cocktail kit is funny, cheap and thoughtful if your secret santa has a particular drink they love.
Binding your own book is surprisingly easy and quick, and of course the materials are very cheap. Changeboard magazine focuses on career development from an organisational, individual and global perspective.
Changeboard Middle East magazine highlights the challenges of nationalisation, talent management and leadership. My mother is planning a Secret Santa event at her work and asked me to help her with the details. Start by opening our Secret Santa sign-up download in Microsoft Word and customize the dollar amount and instructions to suit your particular Secret Santa event.
Then print out the sign-up sheet and hang it somewhere prominent at work (or wherever you are hosting your Secret Santa event). When you’ve gathered all the names on your list, print out enough info cards for everyone who has signed up. Each person will fill out a card with his or her name and some personal favorites that will help their Secret Santas shop for them. To help your Secret Santas out when it comes time to hand out gifts, print a bunch of the gift labels from our download as well, and put them in a common location, or hand them out to everyone. Momlet, the sign-up sheet and info card download is in .doc format, which means you can open it in Microsoft Word.
I was pulling my hair out becase I was just assigned the Secret Santa this year and wanted it to be different. This is great, thank you for sharing, so easy to download and customize for our needs without having to recreate from scratch.
These designs were not designed specifically for Secret Santa, but you can easily change the wording to make it perfectly matches your theme.

So here is how it went-Santa and I are good friends so I had a little talk with him last year. I’ve made a blank tag you  Santa can download and hand write the name on each tag to personalize it for each kiddo. I wish I had more pictures to share with you of the box but I was almost 9 months pregnant and it was before we started the blog! Clue #2 This box outside is mostly filled with things that rarely bring you glee like bills, and junk, and other stuff you’d rather never see. I always did scavenger hunt woth younger siblings for their biggest birthday and biggest Christmas presents.
My husband and I have done treasure hunts for our 5 kids for Christmas Day going on 16 years now! Visit these hand-picked websites with Christmas games, stories, and activities just for the kids in your family.
If you worry too much about whether or not the recipient will like their gifts, you can expend a lot of needless energy in the wrong area. Each one came from the Dollar Tree, and cost $1 (the exception being the last gift where I combined 4 $1 items). Mix a couple of these one-dollar ideas with some bigger gifts, and you've have a great Secret Santa Run.
Most of these items are things that people will probably need at some point anyway, so why not take advantage of that?
There was a whole wall of ornaments to choose from (I just realized there are a ton on their website, too), so your style options aren't too limited here. Tied with a ribbon and finished with a cute tag, this treat makes a simple first Secret Santa gift.
This baby gives you plenty of options so you can tackle those weird projects that come along. But in terms of sports, they had baseball, basketball, football, and soccer, so if you've got a fan of any of those activities, you're in luck! You can't go wrong with this handy screen cleaner that they can throw in their desk or car. Okay, maybe that scenario plays out more in my scattered DIY-lifestyle than is typical, but still, you never know when you'll need a bungee cord. I'm not opposed to anyone wearing these, but in general, I think you're safer gifting them to a female), but they were so darn cute, how can I resist?
A popular gift choice as it is, but here you're paying a lot less than at some other major retailers.
Check out the $1 Valentine's Gifts Series--all of the gifts featured could be easily adapted for Secret Santa or Stocking Stuffers!
A couple a weeks ago I was approached by Kirsty from Rockit Style to write a feature for a new online blogger's magazine called THE EDIT. But again, if you search around the internet there are many great tutorials, especially on blogs.
The book also looks so thoughtful, and is lot more personal than normal secret santa presents, and a lot nicer! What does every Christmas tree need (apart from lots of baubles, tinsel and a magnificent star on top)… presents! Roll on, Secret Santa.
We feature HR  professionals who are making a real difference in their organisations and showcase the fantastic work they’re doing. We unearth inspiring role models and showcase practical and achievable solutions from employers and employees.
I’ve been trying to convince my family to do a secret santa for years, to eliminate having to buy gifts for everyone in my big Italian family. Colleague and I are going to use this to put together our Secret Santa this year for 20+ people!


We wanted to get a head start this year and the template is what we were looking for share with the staff!!!!
Whether it’s the classic secret santa party, or simply a Santa Claus themed celebration with kids and family, you will find an invitation idea perfect for you.
That can lead to spending more money than you need in an effort to compensate for not knowing whether the gifts will be appreciated.
In addition, the gift tags hold clever (errr, super-cheesy) messages, to communicate a personal, light-hearted touch. The packaging here consisted of a linen bag (I have a bunch of them on hand because I love them; I got them from Save on Crafts) and another gift tag. I just hold a soft spot in my heart for the Yankees, so I chose a more specific message :). This is actually for my best friend, who loves cosmo's but can never afford them, so I thought this was cute. For my secret santa I am going to fill it with lots of photos and messages, but I think you could play around with it as a gift idea for your family or partner as well. This is the secret santa gift I would like someone to get me as it's cute as anything, not too expensive, but very, very thoughtful. We could be throwing a unique party, refinishing a flea market find, or whipping up a new cupcake recipe. I am sharing with you how Santa made Christmas morning (last year) a little adventure for my kids with a Santa gift scavenger hunt. My older two were a little bummed but I did do a special surprise for them that I will be sharing soon here on the blog! Your backpack?  I know in the days after Hurricane Sandy, we couldn't get enough of them! These are very trendy right now, and some big-fashion retailers are selling them for A LOT more than a dollar. I would love to hear your comments and I read them all--even if it's an old post!Unfortunately, I had to disallow anonymous commenting because of too many spammers :(Look forward to hearing from you!
I decided to go for secret santa gift ideas, as I had a few in the pipeline already for my friends!
Of course you can go and buy a book, but this looks like you really made an effort and they look kind of cutesy and childlike when they're done. From picking out my colleague’s name (BIG secret, shhh) to thinking what can I possibly buy for them with the ?10 budget. Only big present we didn’t hid was bikes that one Christmas cause how do you hide a bike. Wrap them in a giftbox (used Spritz giftboxes from Target-sorry, can't find a link, they were on an endcap near the party section), tie it closed with some cute cord and a bow (both also on that Target endcap), and you've got one fancy-looking present. If you've got someone who fits the bill for this gift, then scoop them up (and maybe grab a set for yourself, too, like I did)!
Sorry if it's up a bit late in time for secret santa exchanges, but I wanted to wait till the magazine's launch which is today! I wanted to do something a little different to really get them excited about Christmas morning. I took scrapbook paper, glued it to thin cardboard, and used Glue Dots to attach the flashlight from the bottom. Do not use them, they last about 2 minutes and they die, unless you are using them in low drain things like remotes or flashlights, but it has to be a really cheap flashlight that isn't too bright.
