The joy of Secret Santa is that it revolves around a small spending limit (meaning more pennies to spend getting festive at the pub). However, despite being one of the few economical things about the holiday period, the tradition often gets a bad rap due to the difficulty of finding low-cost, good-quality gifts.
Usually played among big families, groups of friends and colleagues, the gift-giving game often sees people panic-buying cheap novelty gifts for want of a better alternative. Which, although funny at the time, means that most presents end up in a drawer somewhere, never to be seen again.
