It can be tough figuring out what to buy that co-worker you barely speak to for Christmas, but these secret Santa ideas can help.

Secret Santa is a tradition carried out in workplaces and sometimes in big families where there are too many people to buy presents for. The idea is everyone puts their name in a box and whoever you pick out of the box, you buy a gift for. Everyone picks a name and therefore everyone buys one present and receives one present. This alleviates the pressure, both fiscally and creatively, of buying dozens of presents.

According to this secret Santa ideas infographic, the original Secret Santa might have been an American philanthropist Larry Dean Stewart who used to give out $100 bills to strangers around the holidays as a way of giving back. They say he gave out 1.6 million dollars over a 26 year period.
