So back in August, in Nice of all places, I started thinking about Secret Santa. Back when were at school we did Secret Santa in a really big group to avoid everyone spending all their pocket money on 20 bottles of nail varnish, it worked really well and meant everyone ended up with something they liked. My favourite was the year my friend bought me some lovely earrings, one of my favourite singles on CD and wrapped it all up in an Ipswich bag.

Instagram is a place when people can come together and discuss shared interests so I thought it would be the perfect place to host a Secret Santa, I am calling it #SecretHanta though because a) my name is Hannah and b) no-one has used the hashtag on Instagram (and we all know how hard it is to find an original hashtag!)

You don’t need to know the person you are being Secret Santa for, the idea is you will hopefully be able to get a good idea of the person through flicking through their Instagram photos.

So how does it work?

  • You can sign up from today (5 November) until Sunday 19 November by simply filling in the form below.
  • Between Sunday 19 November and Saturday 4 December I will sort through everyone’s messages and assign Secret Santas!
  • You will then have until 16 December to put together your packages and post them off to your Secret Santa in time for Christmas!
  • When you receive your parcel I would LOVE to see!

Are there any rules?

No, not really! You can buy bits, make bits, whatever you like! The only thing you must include is a letter or note and I’m afraid it is restricted to UK only.

Suggested spending limit: £12

If you have any questions you can get in touch with me at any time via Instagram (@suffolktractorgirl) or using the main contact form. Of course we want as many people to take part as possible so please share!

Thank you for taking part… here’s the form:

  1. Have just received my “secret person”to send to. I see we have to enclose a note. Do we say who we are? Or is it really that secret? Please advise. All so exciting. Love the idea. Hats off to you for organising. Xx
