Secret Santa

Secret Santa Gifts

So you know how if you work at an office or go to school you get to do fun and festive things around the holidays like parties and gift exchanges? Well, working at home by yourself as a blogger could be rather lonely.

So, Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone decided to invite a few bloggers to do a Secret Santa with her this year — and I am participating because I thought it would be a lot of fun! I haven’t done a Secret Santa for years!

For our Secret Santa, the gifts can be store bought or handmade, and there was no dollar limit. We are just having fun with this! And for added fun, we are going to let you all see some of the gifts via our blogs and maybe you can help us guess who our Secret Santas are, OK? Plus I bet you’ll get a few great gift ideas along the way too.

Here is how it works, we are each going to get and send two gifts in the mail!

Secret Santa

I received my first gift in the mail this weekend and I think it is such a cute gift idea!

A mason jar full of super cute decorative tapes, ribbons and gift tags? LOVE THEM! YES! Now I’m ready to wrap!

Genius, and adorable. Any idea who might have sent it?

Secret Santa

Here are the options of who my Secret Santa might be!

Brooklyn Limestone
4 men 1 lady
bryn alexandra

isabella and max rooms

So who do you think might be my Secret Santa? Any clues?

    I think that Emily Clark is your secret santa.

    I enjoyed looking at the blogs and I even learned how to do a Tiffany bow in the process! I loved that .

    I can’t wait for the Open House!! Thanks for all that you do to entertain and inspire me.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Life with Kaishon

    Oh my goodness. I have no idea. Love it though. Very fun and creative.

  3. Lorrie

    I have no clue. But what a fun way to play!

  4. Mrs. Limestone

    That is an adorable gift. Wish I had thought of that one :)

    • Melissa

      Oh, are you throwing me off? Hmmm… :-)

      • Mrs. Limestone

        Hmm..I guess you’ll just have to think that one over. (insert evil laugh here)

        • Melissa

          I’m on to you now, girl….

  5. Jade

    6pm – are you kidding me? That’s 2am here, no way I can stay up that late, I’ll just have to join the party tomorrow. So excited, got my post up already.

    Unless I can find a friend state side to help me out!

  6. Tina

    Ooohh, I love it. How cute and what a fun idea! I think your secret santa is brooklyn limestone. I saw the same ribbons on her blog. hehe

  7. kathysue

  8. Kristin

    I’m bad at the guessing game! LOL

    BUT I am looking forward to the Open House tonight! Even if I don’t have a post ready…can we link up separate “rooms” posts? Or does it need to be one post with everything?

    Thanks so much!!

    • Melissa

      Nope you can link up any Christmas decor you want, a whole house or a room or a mantel….:-)
