5 Kris Kringle Rules to to Make This Year's Kris Kringle the Best Ever

Make sure this year's Kris Kringle gift exchange is the best ever by following 5 cardinal rules of gift exchanges.

Whether you call it Kris Kringle, Secret Santa or just plain old 'gift exchange,' there's no doubt that holiday season anonymous gift exchanges are a favorite holiday tradition. Why? Simply because they are a sure-fire way to spice up holiday parties and bring groups together around gift giving.

While known by the name Secret Santa in the U.S. and Great Britain, the ritual is also known under Kris Kindle and Kris Kringle in Australia and New Zealand. The phrase 'Secret Santa' can refer both to the game or to any of the people participating.

Whether for office or home, church or school, here are four cardinal rules to make sure this year's Secret Santa a happy boost to your group's holiday spirit:

  1. Start early. Don't set up your Kris Kringle group and game at the last minute. Give people time to find thoughtful gifts. The first week in December is a great time to set your group up - this is a time when thoughts are already turning to Christmas.
  2. Get people excited! Announce the Kris Kringle program with enthusiasm and salesmanship... remind people that the whole point is to get laughs when the gifts are opened.
  3. Make participation optional. Especially in workplace settings, give folks a pep talk to sign up, but also give them the room to opt out. Not every one is comfortable with this holiday ritual.
  4. Be clear on cash limits. The whole idea is to give gifts that spark fun, not that cost a lot. Limits on gift giving are almost always a good idea - not only do they make sure everyone can afford their role as Kris Kringle, but they help inspire creativity - usually, the lower the dollar amount, the higher the creativity index!
  5. Ensure gifts are appropriate. Find a way to gently remind folks that all gifts must be appropriate to your group. A mistake at some office Christmas parties is the Kris Kringle gift that causes embarrassment to the recipient.
Start planning now and have a great Kris Kringle this year!

What's the difference between day and night creams?

Most day creams contain an SPF to protect your skin against harmful UVA rays, which of course you don't need in the dark! At night, your skin absorbs more moisture and repairs itself while you sleep, which is why night creams have more concentrated ingredients so you can reap the full benefits of beauty sleep.

Did you know? - The History of AVON

In 1886, David H. McConnell founded the California Perfume Company, which would become Avon, in New York City. As an unsuccessful book salesman, he had concocted a rose-scented perfume as a "free gift" to encourage people to buy his books. The perfume was so popular, McConnell decided to abandon the book business and start a perfume company instead.

In 1897, McConnell built the California Perfume Company's first factory in Suffern, New York, which was conveniently located alongside railroad tracks for easy access to ship his products.

After his death in 1937, his son took over the family business. The company changed its name to Avon in 1939 in honor of Shakespeare's hometown, Stratford-on-Avon.
