In a manner similar to secret Santa, a great idea to bring friends together and to celebrate the holidays is to have a purse making party. Before the party, everyone should draw a name from a hat. Each person them must design a purse for the person whose name they draw. Go to any of the stores that allow you to design your own purses and let the purse making begin. The most exciting part of the party is knowing that everyone is making a purse for someone at the party, but not knowing who. A purse making party works best for groups of friends who know each other extremely well. It's perfect for friends who want to spend the same amount on their holiday presents and also want to spend some close time together.
