A Secret Santa Gift That Dazzles

You may not know it, but our modern practice of Secret Santa has been around a long time and spans the Western world. It's called many things depending where you are - Kris Kindel, Whichteln, Amigo Secreto - but the premise remains the same: a giver is matched up with a recipient who does not know his or her identity. When the gift is finally opened, the secret can then be revealed or participants can guess. That element of anonymity and surprise is what makes Secret Santa so compelling and just plain fun. Today, we even have Secret Santa online, as well as many other gift exchange variations like White Elephant and Yankee Swap. At Crouch Florist, we think that no matter how your group swaps, the gifts should be good. Read More about A Secret Santa Gift That Dazzles »
