Secret Santa’s are usually horribly organized work events that include a lot of last minute searching for a formal, yet personal gift for your coworkers. The go-to gifts usually include sample size lotions and $10 gifts cards to Target. Not exactly a thrill. A book-related Secret Santa, however, is a great excuse to buy and receive an extra book in the mail. The Bookish Blog is hosting an international Secret Santa for all things book related. In order to participate you have to sign up before December 3rd and promise to ship a gift, either domestically or internationally, to your assigned person. To sign up, you are required to give your name, address, a few items off your wish list, and a possibly something extra to tell your Santa. Once you’re signed up, you can buy something, most likely a book, for around $20 and expect to receive the same in the mail. Think of it like taking a gamble – you could receive an extra copy of Sherlock Holmes, or you could find your next favorite book.
