Secret Santa Announcement Letter to Colleagues


Subject: Unveiling the Mystery-Secret Santa 2023 Edition!

Dear Fantastic Colleagues, as you all know, Christmas is approaching, and what better way to celebrate than with a dash of mystery and a pinch of surprise? Yup, you guessed it right—it’s Secret Santa time!

This year’s Christmas office theme is the Winter Wonderland of secret gift-giving. You are invited to be a part of this festive magic, but first, you must take the oath of secrecy by following the rules. And the rules are…

Drum roll, please!

  1. Imagine you’re Sherlock Holmes and on an undercover mission to draw a name from the Secret Santa Hat. You cannot be seen drawing the name at any cost.
  2. Start some research for mission gift-giving. Stalk your target enough to find out his/her wishes, dreams, and maybe some favorite snacks too. It’s like you’re Santa working on your gift-giving survey.
  3. After the above two steps, you should now be equipped with the perfect gift. It is time to execute a Ninja-level delivery. Place it beneath our beautiful office tree, but if you can make it to their table without being caught, you can even place it on their tabletop. If all else fails, just toss it in the mailbox!

Now that you know the rules, let me tell you that the real magic will take place on [mention the date of the Secret Santa party]. In case you’re wondering, where? Join us in the lunchroom at [mention time of the party] to witness the fun reveal as we unwrap not gifts but laughs and joy. Plus, you get to find out who your secret Santa is! Oh, and make sure to not wear your regular boring office attire; jingle bells are encouraged!

Let the festive spying begin, and may your Secret Santa mission be merry and bright!

Best Regards,

[your name]

Subject: Top Secret Operation of Unwrapping Fun

Ho-ho-hold on to your giggles, dear colleagues!

The time has come to finally reveal our master plan for spreading holiday fun faster than Santa’s sleigh. Drumroll, pleaaaaaase…

Introducing the Top Secret Santa Party

This secret mission involves surprise gift-giving, secret wrapping, and the most top-notch celebration on this side of the North Pole.

Quickly gather here for the guidelines:

  1. You are now Santa’s formal agent. Assign yourself a code name (think Mr.Elf?) to keep your royal identity hidden. Shhhhhh!
  2. The huge name list is: Pick a colleague’s name from the hat without getting caught; you don’t want anyone seeing you, right?—no peeking allowed! (Santa is watching…)
  3. Intelligence gathering: very quietly, gather information on your target’s wishes, wants, and dreams. Social media stalking is highly encouraged, hehe!
  4. The Wrap Battle: You’re going to need your gift-wrapping superpowers to keep your identity hidden. The wrapper is your cover-up!
  5. Special delivery: In super stealth mode, sneak the gift to your colleague’s desk, in their laptop bag, or under the office Christmas tree, making sure no one sees you in action.

You must not forget that the most important rule of Secret Santa is: You do not talk about Secret Santa (until the grand reveal only)!

Grand Reveal: On [mention date of the party], join us in our super-secret point (our good old lunchroom) for the big reveal and be a part of the joy, laughter, high-fives, and maybe a few hugs, guaranteed.

Warning: Failure to comply with the secrecy oath may result in oh-so-scary consequences.

Gear up, peeps! It’s time to sleigh this holiday season.

Secret Santa like never before!

P.S. Grinch called. He might just join us.
