Secret Santa

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

This holiday season is where you can have so much fun playing a game, is a fun and easy way for a group of friends, family members or co-workers to exchange gifts. There are some basic steps that you need to follow:

-All of the participants’ names are placed into a hat or similar container, and mixed up. Each person then chooses one name from the box, but doesn’t tell anyone which name was picked. He/she is now responsible for buying a gift for the person selected.

– You also can make a wish list including the gifts you want on a piece of paper.

-Set a price limit. The price limit is set so that some people don´t try to be cheap and get away with purchasing a gift for a few bills, while others try to overachieve and purchase very expensive gifts.

-When the Secret Santa wraps his/her gift, he/she should label it with the recipient’s name but doesn’t indicate whom the present is from. (Remember, most of the fun is in the secrecy.)

-All the gifts are then placed in a general area for opening at a designated time. When the gift-giving time arrives, each recipient finds his/her gift and must guess who their Secret Santa is. If they can’t guess, their Secret Santa eventually confesses.
