Some people take part in Secret Santa exchanges. Secret Santa is a fun way to exchange gifts with your friends, co-workers, or acquaintances. Many people enjoy being surprised by unpredictable gifts.
First, the group sets a price for the presents.
Then, each person buys something around that price.
Finally, everyone exchanges gifts at a party.
A few years ago I experienced Secret Santa at work. There were about 30 people.
I remember buying something predictable, a box of novelty chocolates for $10.
At the party we made a big circle of chairs and the presents were put into a big bag. Then one by one we pulled a present out of the bag. I recieved Russian doll nail clippers. Another co-worker received a purple wig.
