What to get someone if you are their secret santa

The act of gift-giving using a secret santa is a predominantly Western tradition. It works by putting everyone's name in a box and mixing it up. Each person gets to pick a random name and buys a gift for that someone secretly.

Gift ideas

Buying gifts for someone if you are their secret santa is not easy and unless you know the person very well, you might even have bigger obstacles in finding an amazing gift. To get an idea what your secret santa person wants, you can do the following:

  • Ask someone who is close to the person what they would like to receive for Christmas
  • It can be a family member or a best friend who will know the taste and preferences of the receiver.

  • Observe what the individual likes or loves.
  • It can be reading books, sports, exercise or eating healthy. From there, you can get tips what the person would like to have as a gift.

    With that in mind, you can consider the following ideas as gifts for your secret santa:

    For men
