Playing Secret Santa this year? We at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts have the goods. If it’s your first time participating in this group gift swap, allow us to introduce you to the concept. Secret Santa’s origins can be traced to Scandinavia, where legend holds that a very Santa Claus-like figure used to knock on his neighbor’s doors and when they answered, vanish without a trace. All that was left behind was a present and maybe a few lines of verse hinting at the giver’s identity.
Today in the U.S. there are countless variations on the theme – even online versions. But no matter which iteration you’re playing, we can help with the gift part.
