Christmas is one of the loveliest times of the day. All houses are decorated and you can sense the smell of gingerbread cookies in the air.
People gather with their families to share a delicious meal and exchange gifts. In some families or groups of friends, each member buys a present for each of the rest.
This can be useful for small groups where every person doesn’t need to buy more than three or four gifts, but in big families, this system can represent a whole budget! That’s when Secret Santa shows up.
Secret Santa is a game where each person is assigned one person to give a present to. This way, every member only buys one really nice present instead of buying many cheap ones.
But for making this process memorable, we recommend making a printable Secret Santa form!
How does a Secret Santa form work?
Making presents can sometimes be difficult. It’s not so easy to find the perfect gift for the people around you, especially if it’s someone who seems to have everything they need or they aren’t particularly fans of anything.
For this purpose, we recommend creating a Secret Santa questionnaire that can get you all the information you need from your assigned person.
But how are the people assigned? First, make a Secret Santa list with all the people who are going to participate in the game.
You can do this manually or type into a Word document and print it. Then, cut all the names into little stripes that you can roll up into a tiny ball.
Put all the names in a bag, mix them, and ask each of the members to get one. This way they will be chosen randomly! Now comes the time to use the printable Secret Santa form!
Again, you can create this form by hand or on a computer, but the concept is the same. Write a set of questions about the kind of present the receiver may want.
Some of these questions can be:
- What kind of music do you like?
- Is there anything you need at the moment?
- What would be your dream present?
- What is your favorite color?
- Is there anything you wouldn’t like to get as a present?
Based on how well you know the other participants, you can change the questions to make it more exciting!
What if I want to make a printable Secret Santa form?
If you don’t want to make the Secret Santa questionnaire by hand, you can always use our good old friend Word! You can write the questions there and use different styles to make it look fancy. If you are more interested in making something even cuter, you can access the Canva website to create a beautiful graphic design piece for no cost.
And if you are a little lazy to make a design on your own, here you can find some customizable printable Secret Santa forms to download. 😉
We wish you a Merry Christmas and that you can put into practice a printable Secret Santa form to ensure that all the guests at your Christmas gathering are happy with their presents!
