This year, I decided to take part in Reddit’s Secret Santa for the first time.
In case you haven’t heard about it before, Reddit runs a Secret Santa gift exchange every year. In fact, they do it all year round with different themes but this is their most well-known one.
I was a little nervous as I have never done anything like this before but I bit the bullet, signed up and waited to find out who I was assigned to.
You fill out a questionnaire and say a bit about yourself so your Santa can figure out what to get you and from what I could tell there isn’t a price limit but the average amount spent is around $26.
At the time of writing, I have finished on my end with everything bought and wrapped up ready to be sent away. I will post it tomorrow, I hope he likes what I got for him!
As for my gifts, they arrived a few days ago and boy, I am chuffed about what I received! I was so over the moon as I unwrapped each item that I squealed with delight. Apparently, my folks could hear me downstairs over the TV.
As you can see, I got an adorable tee, a book, three small bottles of mead and some sweets. To top it off, it was wrapped beautifully with a note that hoped that I would enjoy the gifts.
In all honesty, this was better than I dared hope for! I’ve been meaning to watch Mindhunter but now I have the original book and you know what they say, the book is better.
On top of that, do you know how tricky it is to get mead in Scotland? I haven’t been able to find a single drop of the stuff outside of last years Christmas market. The set I got contains Strawberry (my favourite) traditional and salted caramel. I can’t wait to drink them.
Santa has been good to me this year!
I will definitely take part again next year, It has been fun buying gifts for a stranger and lovely to receive such wonderful presents from a fellow Redditor. If you can, please consider taking part next year.
