The 12 Months of Christmas- Secret Santa all Year

My good friend has a great family tradition called the “12 Months of Christmas”. Each January, they pick 2 families and every month they deliver a small gift and special assignment to each family. The gifts and assignments help keep the Christmas spirit alive all year.   Here are her ideas, but you can get creative and adjust as needed:
