Secret Santa Gift Exchange
Secret Santa is a great party game that is ideal for Christmas time (or whatever gift-giving holiday you love to celebrate!). There is some preparation involved for each player, as well as a small cost involved. Each person must buy a gift of a similar price value (up to $12, for example) and a game coordinator needs to randomly assign each player to another player (their secret gift recipient).
Each player has a certain amount of time to buy a gift and deliver it to their target (for example, two weeks). Alternatively, have a gift organizer collect the gifts and distribute them at a certain time. Have fun! And you thought Santa wasn’t real.
