It’s the sweetest, jolliest time of the year. With work Christmas parties and friends and families gathering to spread happiness and cheer, there’s a lot of love to go around during the Christmas season. For many of us, Kris Kringle is a big part of celebrating each other in a fun and wholesome way during the festive season – but what to buy to spoil your secret recipient? In this article, we’re sharing our top picks of festive fancies to spoil your Kris Kringle and Secret Santa this Christmas.
What is Kris Kringle?
Kris Kringle (or Secret Santa) is a mystery gift exchange, celebrated in workplaces and amongst families and friends. A budget is agreed to, a deadline is a set and with everyone’s names in a hat, it’s time to discover who your Kris Kringle recipient is. But what do they like? Perfume? Clothing? Books?
How to Choose a Kris Kringle Gift?
The best way to choose a Kris Kringle gift is to get everyone to write down five things they enjoy – that could be hobbies, particular interests or exactly what they’re looking for. This will make it super easy to find the perfect gift, especially for large groups, such as for an office Kris Kringle, where you might not know everyone.
If you do know the recipient well, think about what their likes and dislikes are, favourite foods, TV shows, movies, sayings or expressions. This will help guide your creativity to gift them something that speaks specifically to them. Although, with smaller budgets, sometimes the best gift is something they can taste, savour and enjoy.
At Koko Black, we’re giving the gift of happiness this Christmas and taking the hard work out of gift-giving. With a curation of gifts at your fingertips, we’ve made Kris Kringle easy. Find our top picks and favourites for any gift giver whether it’s for a family Kris Kringle, for friends or colleagues!
