Although it’s name might suggest otherwise, the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange is a family friendly game! It is called dirty because game participants steal gifts from each other in the attempt to end up with the best possible gift.
Gifts for Dirty Santa are typically something fun, new, unique, and in good taste.
