Skandiblog’s shopping guide for Secret Santa!
Christmas time brings lots of exciting traditions and rituals. One of the favourites over here in the UK is Secret Santa! Depending on who you get to buy for, Secret Santa can be great fun, or a daunting task! But it doesn’t have to fill you with dread or leave you uninspired. You’ve set your budget, you know the person (or maybe you don’t – even more fun) and now it’s time to convert them to the Scandi side this Christmas. We’ve collated a Secret Santa shopping guide for varying budgets that will hopefully inspire and please even the fussiest of team members!
