Secret Santa Service-Oriented Printable
If you’re a Christmas fanatic, then you’re already getting psyched for all the caroling, Christmas light viewing, stocking hanging, and gingerbread building that comes along with the month of December. But arguably the biggest thing we’re going to be doing over the next couple of months is SHOPPING.
That’s right, mama. Gift-giving season is here! And before you lose your mind trying to make a list of every single thing that you need to buy for every friend and relative, let me just introduce a couple of magical words into your holiday vocabulary:
Secret Santa is seriously the greatest way to make sure that you’re not buying gifts for everyone, but that you’re focusing your gifting on one person, and doing your best to make it sweet, personal, and something they will love!
Consider working a Secret Santa tradition into your Christmas season, and use these adorable Secret Santa Questionnaires for everyone to fill out so that you can focus your Christmas shopping super powers on things that your Secret Santa wants/needs/loves! It’ll ask what some of their favorite treats, colors, and animals are. It will also ask what they want and what they need to make things a little easier on all the shopping Santas! But you can also use all the questions to come up with a totally unique and personal gift that your Secret Santa wasn’t expecting but will make them sing your Christmas praises!
So, how do you work this into your Christmas line up? Simple.
We know that you have children aged anywhere from 0-55 (because husbands), which means that you need all the help you can get in teaching them that Christmas is not only about receiving, but about serving those that you love! So, some time before Christmas gets too close (perhaps 1 or 2 weeks before Christmas) gather the family around and have each individual fill one out…obviously, if you have small children who cannot write and/or talk they will need a little help! Then, have everyone draw names and provide them with their target’s corresponding Secret Santa questionnaire. Now it’s time to get shopping or serving or baking or coloring! Help your younger children create items for their loved ones or think of ways they can make their loved ones days! This will be a tradition you will want to keep up for years to come!
With Christmas coming up, we’re all gearing up for the hours of decorating, baking, shopping, and wrapping (oh and singing to Christmas songs obviously). Secret Santa is the perfect way to get your loved ones excited about gift giving this year!
