Everyone needs to get assigned their Secret Santa! ?A facilitator gathers all players’ names?and puts them onto a list. ?He or she then randomly assigns a name for each person. ?Then tell each player who their Secret Santa is, along with a price limit (something like $10 is probably a good amount).

Give each person 2 or 3 weeks to purchase a gift up to the price limit. ?Deliver the gift in secret, or give gifts to other friends to deliver to their secret santa!
