This year I organized my first Secret Santa for fellow Dutch booklovers, bookbloggers and bookstagrammers. Since this was a novelty for me, I thought it would be fun to look back on the results and share some pictures.

We ended up with a small group of participants that were all lovely and enthusiastic. Secret Santas received an e-mail and were told to put together a package for someone with 1-2 books and some additional goodies. None of us knew who we would get a package from, adding the fun surprise element. All participants put together really nice packages and showed their creative side. Packages didn’t just contain books, but also other items such as snacks, tea and jewelry. Check out some of the Secret Santa photos below!

I think that the gift exchange was a success, so I might consider organizing another Secret Santa in 2018, if I have the time. For now, I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas! Stay tuned for my end-of-year post that will go up somewhere this week!
