secret santa gift exchanges have become quite popular. when you’re as super popular (don’t forget adorable) as you are, you have too many friends to give gifts to for christmas. we end up drawing names and buying a gift card.
ugh, how boring.
secret santa’s can have a lot more personality than that. you can buy and donate presents, like my friends did last year. or, if you’re the type that want to hold on to a gift, try wrapping up one of my ideas – all under $30.
