Like many offices, a holiday tradition at W5 is the Secret Santa gift exchange. A few weeks before the company holiday party, our Senior Partner Tom Daly circulates the office with each of our names in a hat to choose our gifting partner. We each then do our best to figure out the perfect present, while sticking to the $25 limit.
Since this is my first year, I did some primary research to better understand what makes for a great office Secret Santa gift. I interviewed W5ers from our qualitative, quantitative, and strategy teams about what gifts they most appreciate and I heard about some of the best Secret Santa gifts they have received.
