This time of year sees many fun traditions and customs that involve gift giving. Secret Santa gift exchanges are a popular way for large groups - such as office colleagues - to have a festive celebration without participants having to buy for everyone. Each person becomes Secret Santa to only one other in the group and can concentrate on making that one person's holiday merry, without breaking the bank. These exchanges take many forms, from many small daily gifts to one larger gift - but they are all an opportunity to find creative ways to say Happy Holidays! If you'd like to rise above the ordinary this year, consider buying your Secret Santa gifts from Norfolk Florist.
