You've made a list of your best friends, and now you're checking it twice. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the snow must go on with Secret Santa this year. Instead of gathering in-person, your crew will exchange gifts and carry on your tradition via Zoom. These virtual Secret Santa ideas are sure to bring good tidings and times to you and your crew.
Since you can't exchange presents and cookies the way you traditionally do, a virtual Secret Santa is the way to go. The guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which were updated on Nov. 27, 2020, note to avoid close contact with anyone you don't live with. Guidelines related to travel, which were updated on Dec. 2, 2020, note that traveling can increase your risk of getting or spreading the coronavirus, so planning to stay home is the safest way to go.
Fear not, because hosting Secret Santa over Zoom will still be tons of fun. It may require you to send a package to a friend ahead of time or get creative with games and activities. You can even still include yummy snickerdoodles and chocolate-covered pretzels galore. Simply give any attendees a very cute itinerary beforehand, filled with ideas for virtual Secret Santa. Ship a gift to the BFF you picked, and prepare for good tidings and times.
