Secret santa - rules and ideas!

O2 Community 2019 Advent Calendar

 

Hey everyone, 

 

At this time of year offices and companies across the country start organising their secret santa arrangements. This can be a fun time but can also be be the cause of stress and anxiety over what to get and how much to spend.

There are some basic rules that can help things go smoothly like setting a maximum spend or adding the option of a wishlist to avoid getting stuck on what to get someone. 

 

So, if you were left in charge of arranging the secret santa this year what rules would you have in place to keep things running smoothly? Let us know in the comments below!

I couldn't agree more. Rubbish gifts that are usually just passed on or thrown in the back of the drawer.

Definitely a spend limit of £5.  AFter all, 99% of people at work only have work in common with you.

 

I got a terrible gift for my secret santa. Clearly whoever choose me didn't know me and didn't ask anyone.  My pick I did my research and got them soemthing I know they would like or at the very least appreciate.

Thanks

Steve
