Secret Santa, a gift swap that hinges on the giver concealing his identity from the recipient, has a mysterious background. As best we can tell, our modern version is an import from Scandinavia, where custom held that givers should go around knocking on doors and dropping presents at them (or in some cases, throwing them into the house!), all without being seen. Similar gift exchange traditions exist in Germany, Latin America, the Philippines, Ireland . . . You name it. It seems we can’t get enough of the anonymous gift exchange, and we at Marco Island Florist are no different.
Fortunately, we know the best way to your Secret Santa recipient’s heart. Pick up our Norman Love Holiday Chocolates and watch as all of the other participants openly swoon.
These goodies are as beautiful as they are tasty – meant to be displayed and admired for their artful design as much as they are intended to be eaten. If you’re certain your giftee is trying to avoid gorgeous, delectable chocolates, go the other route and offer them a Festive Poinsettia and Fruit Basket.
This gift is a win because it combines one of our beloved seasonal plants with bright, shiny fruit. It needs no additional wrapping either. All you’ll need to conceal is your identity!
