Vanly’s First Nationwide Secret Santa

Send a gift, receive a gift! Take part in the first Secret Santa hosted by Vanly. Vanly’s goal is to create tangible human connections. So this year, we are hosting a Secret Santa for our Vanly family and friends. We have put a lot of time and effort into making this Secret Santa work for our community and are super excited to share it with you! For this years Secret Santa, we have also added “Package Delivery” as an additional amenity so that hosts can accept packages for their Vanly guests.

What is a Secret Santa? 

Secret Santa is a game where a community of people exchange presents anonymously, everyone who signs up will provide a gift to the person they are assigned. When you register you will be asked questions that will help your Secret Santa get to know you better. Then all you need to do is choose the right gift for your Secret Santa and mail it to them on time.        


How does it work?

The way we planned Secret Santa should be pretty straightforward for everyone. First, you must Sign up by December 4th, 2022. This will include verifying your email and phone number and answering a few questions to help your Secret Santa get to know you better. Next, you will get matched on December 5th, 2022 with your Secret Santa and receive the information to help you find the gift that you think would brighten up their holiday season. Finally, you send out your gift by or before December 13th and submit a picture of your shipping receipt so our elves can keep track and make sure everyone gets a Secret Santa gift! You can post a picture of what you got for this year's Secret Santa on the Vanly Gift Board and people can upvote/downvote and comment on your gift.   

What should I get for my Secret Santa?

We leave it to you to find something that will match your Secret Santa description. Try to be creative and have fun choosing a unique gift by using the fact sheet and description from your Secret Santa that you receive. You don't need to break the bank to get a gift, all we hope is you put some care into choosing or making what you think your Secret Santa would like. (we recommend a value of around $20) To all the artists and makers living or traveling in your van, this is the time you can share your talents through Vanly’s Secret Santa. We ask that you be respectful and use the holiday season to pass on joy and happiness. If you have any other questions check out the “Frequently Asked Questions” section on our website https://vanly.app/santa#faq
