Secret Santa or White Elephant are fun gifting games!
Here’s the low down on Secret Santa and White Elephant:
- If you’re going for Secret Santa, you’ll buy a gift for a person (drawn randomly from a hat, assigned, etc…) while keeping your identity secret. Once the gift is opened, then you can reveal yourself!
- What’s the deal with White Elephant? The definition of white elephant is this: ‘a possession that is useless or troublesome, especially one that is expensive to maintain or difficult to dispose of.’ The idea with a White Elephant gift is that you gift a silly, random item to someone. You don’t have to keep your identity secret, although you can if you’d like. Mix the Secret Santa and the White Elephant for an extra fun game!

Take 15 minutes to enjoy a home cooked meal. Even if you have to work. Make some time for yourself during the holiday season.
