How to prepare the perfect Secret Santa gift: the best ideas and the most original surprises

The tradition of celebrating Secret (or Secret) Santa came to us from the USA. Such a New Year's Eve event is often found among colleagues in the office, classmates or classmates. The very name of the holiday contains the main intrigue: no one guesses who is the author of the gift. We only know the name of the person who is to be surprised. On a predetermined X day, everyone puts their gifts under the tree. On the gift box, the name of the person to whom the surprise is intended must be emblazoned.

Therefore, many people have a logical question: what to give for Secret Santa? Colleagues and classmates don't really know much about each other's interests and hobbies. Especially about cherished dreams and desires. Therefore, you have to look for the best option for a present that will appeal to an unfamiliar person. One of these is a gift certificate. It may concern:

  • purchases of goods;

  • receiving services;

  • emotions.

Such a gift is a better option than a Chinese souvenir purchased in one of the stores. The universal Giftmall gift card deserves special attention. It provides access to hundreds of products and services from trusted manufacturers, companies, active recreation centers, beauty salons, workshops, etc.


Universal gift from Secret Santa on Giftmall

Often people who exchange gifts hardly know each other. In this case, it is difficult to choose gifts from Secret Santa, even if restrictions or specific wishes are written on a piece of paper. The universal Giftmall card comes to the rescue. Among its main advantages:

  1. Variety of designs. For example, you can choose a plastic card that depicts snowflakes or a Christmas tree.

  2. Several types of certificates. You can present not only the classic plastic version, but also its electronic version. This is especially true for IT companies that value comfort and simplicity. Our team can send a code to activate the certificate in a messenger (Telegram or Viber) or by SMS.

A Secret Santa gift often has to fit into a certain amount. As a rule, it is extremely symbolic (from 200 to 1,000 UAH). What interesting things can be bought to a person for the declared amount, without knowing anything about his preferences and wishes? That's right — a Chinese trinket. Even with this problem, the Giftmall card does an excellent job. The donor buys a certificate with a specific denomination (from 200 to 50,000 UAH). Therefore, even for 200 UAH, a person chooses what he needs most. If the product or service is more expensive, you have to pay the difference. If the gift, on the contrary, turned out to be cheaper, the remaining amount can be used next time. A certificate from a particular store is usually canceled even if the person has not used the full amount.

Giftmall universal gift certificate is valid for 60 months. This is quite enough, especially when compared with ordinary certificates to one of the stores, which have a specific time reference. As soon as the euphoria from the New Year holidays passes, a person can again plunge into the atmosphere of a fairy tale and magic.
