Are you doing a Secret Santa with a colleague, friend, family, neighbour?? Do you want to find a sneaky way to send them hints as to who you are, without the trouble of leaving mysterious notes around, or to help lead them to the surprise gift? If you both have cell phones, why not send them “mysterious” text clues from “Secret Santa”?? You can use a tool like TextClues in order to send your Secret Santa clues from an unknown phone # to them, so they will have no idea who you are, but keep them on their toes at the same time!!
How would this work with, perhaps a colleague at work? Let’s get started!
Clue: Hey there! This is your Secret Santa sending you on your first hint about me :) Head over to your desk, second shelf. My eyes are the same colour as the package awaiting you.
Clue: That’s right. Know who I am? Probably not. The next clue can be found behind your phone. What year does it say on the sticker?
Clue: Yep, now you know the year I am born! :) Those are all the clues for today. Stay tuned tomorrow!
You can stop this hunt after this first set of messages, and schedule a second hunt to start the following day by using the scheduler on TextClues to schedule when the next message should be sent :)
Clue: Welcome back! Know who I am? My favorite food is sitting in the kitchen fridge, in a red container. Feel free to have it and respond what I am.
Clue: Yum indeed! Alright, final clue – you may know me as the “good with numbers” guy at the office. Head to Josie for the final clue. What did you get from her?
Answer: A dollar
Winning Message: Right! Lastly, and you better get it right now, but my last name rhymes with the last answer :) Come find me for your prize! And if you don’t guess who I am, well, I may just as well be keeping it :) Happy Holidays!
