Secret Santa stressing you out?

Take the sweat out of Christmas shopping by shopping online

Secret Santa stressing you out

This year you’re taking part in an online Secret Santa project. You and many others across the globe are going to be sending mystery gifts to other participants worldwide who will anxiously be awaiting their Secret Santa surprise.

What is Secret Santa?

Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which participants of a collective or community are randomly allocated a person to whom they secretly give a gift . This festive custom is often practiced in workplaces or among large families and chipping in is generally voluntary. Today this customary practice of gift sharing has evolved and can now be done online. This allows you to steer clear from the overflow of shoppers in the rowdy malls this festive season.

Need a hint on what to buy somebody you know nothing about?

You can ask that the group submit a short wish-list of items from which you, the gift-giver can cherry-pick from. It could also be a good idea to put an expenditure limit on the present. This way there’s no unreasonable expectations for the giver or receiver and you won’t break the bank.

You might see it as a daunting task but with the right resources it can be a fun challenge and, with the immediacy of the internet, you’ll be able to participate from anywhere in the world.

The hard part will be trying to keep the receiver in mind and not selecting items that you want to get your hands on!

Here’s who I’ll be shopping with this Christmas:

Sensational Kids – Maybe the person you’ll be playing Secret Santa to this Christmas has a little toddler that you could surprise with a gift as a kind gesture. Why not visit, where you can choose from a variety of educational toys that promote the development of skills. Seeing that it’s Christmas and cooking up a delicious Christmas lunch will be the order of the day, you could get this cutting food box – wooden play food set which contains 25 hand-crafted wooden pieces, making up eight ‘whole’ pieces of wooden food, a cutting board and a wooden knife which provide a playful introduction to ideas of “whole”, “part”, and fractions. This activity stimulates bilateral skills (using two hands together) and presents the self-care concept of eating and cutting up one’s own food. Not to mention the toddler will be thrilled about helping Mum and Dad in the kitchen.

You’re still undecided? Give the perfect gift – a Sensational Kids Gift Card – and let them decide what they would like.

bidorbuy — If you’re looking to include a bit of quirkiness to your package, have an awesome array of all kinds of appliances, equipment, tools, gadgets, fashion, jewellery, accessories – the list really is endless. Maybe you’ll be gifting a couch potato who knows! This Just Dance 2015 video game could get them moving and grooving this holidays. Mind you, they’d still be in front of the TV, but instead of scoffing down deep dishes of trifle – due to all the celebratory eating that will be going on as people gather at one home to the next – boogying down to a dance routine is a fun way to keep figures trim. Alternatively, surprise someone with a sushi roller this Christmas. Perfect for the holidays and date nights indoors, this appliance could be a fun added element to interactive dinner parties where the guests get to personally prepare the sushi.
