Beat the Credit Crunch This Christmas With a Secret Santa

We always feel a pinch of Credit Crunch during Christmas especially when it comes to gift giving. Since we are under the pressure of financial crisis during this time, why don’t we think of alternative ways on how are we able to save? Especially during Christmas season? Secret Santa is actually a good way of giving gifts to people. It’s kind of fun and exciting way of exchanging gifts and also a great way for us to save money.

Secret Santa is a typical exchange of gifts in a group. One person doesn’t need to buy one gift for each person in the group but to one only. The names of the participants are put to a hat and each person will draw out one name. Each drawn name will remain secret from the rest of the group. Every person will be the secret Santa of the person that they’ve drawn. The group will decide the price limit for the gifts and will decide the date when to exchange the gifts.

This way of exchanging gifts is a good solution especially for a large family. Every member will have enough time to prepare one special gift for just one family member. All family members are entitled to join.

During the expected date of exchanging the gifts, all are gathered and each Santa can personally give his/her gift to their receiver. In some occasions all the gifts are gathered and are placed in one corner and a representative picks a gift and call out the name of the recipient. There are instances when the giver won’t place his/her name on the gift so the receiver will not know who gave the gift, this is when the giver wants to remain anonymous to his/her recipient.

This type of exchange gift is very practical and money saving. One will be able to really prepare and spend for that one special gift for one special person only. Probably, other savings or money of the group can be spent for food and/or for more important matter.

Secret Santa way of exchanging gifts could be a very memorable experience for the family during Christmas. No worries of spending to all members of the family because each member is already expecting one special gift that would be enough to be happy and appreciative at Christmas time.
