If you’re playing Secret Santa at the workplace or with another group this year, you’re in for a real treat. This holiday gift swap isn’t unique to the U.S., appearing in many forms throughout the West, from Kris Kindle in Ireland to Amigo Secreto in Latin America. It’s hard to say where this gift exchange concept came from, but most point to Scandinavia, where people used to knock on doors and dash away before they could be identified, leaving a gift on the lucky recipient’s doorstep.
Now, Secret Santa joins a whole host of other present-swapping games intended for groups, and at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we’re in full support of all of them.
It’s super fun to keep the kind of secret involved here, if you can. There’s nothing like watching everyone claim their gifts at the final swap and to try to figure out who gave what. To really maximize that joyful outcome, we love the idea of giving a fresh seasonal arrangement like our Holiday Traditions Bouquet, which combines flowers with holiday decor. This is exactly the sort of crowd-pleasing present that would make anyone happy.
Our Season’s Greetings Bouquet takes the same approach, a merry mix of blooms with candy canes added for good measure and an ornament container that spells out the reason for the season.
Secret Santa exchanges are an opportunity to come together and have fun. There’s nothing better than giving anonymously either, as it keeps the focus on the receiver and the act itself. This year, let us at Casas Adobes Flower Shop match you up with a merry gift.
