The 2014 Instagram Secret Santa

Oh, hi there guys! I was thinking it would be such a lovely idea to organise one of those secret santa games between foodie instagramers. You know the kind: you’re told the name, account, adress and dietary restrictions if any of a fellow foodie, you send them a cute little parcel with yummy foods, tea boxes, homemade goodies and lots of love and then you get another parcel back from a different instagram friend. Doesn’t it sound fun?

I will organise the European version, meaning that you guys either leave your email adress HERE or BELOW THE “SECRET SANTA PICTURE” WHICH I (@honeyandfigsblog) POSTED ON INSTAGRAM, and I will randomly match you with another instagrammer.

Then I will email you asking you for your home adress (it won’t be shared, I will only tell your secret santa (aka the person who will send you a parcel), and dietary restrictions. Next, I will email you with the name, instagram account and home adress of the person you’ll have to ship the goodies to so you can put together a lovely little parcel for them!


-Tea, energy and protein bars, homemade goodies (make sure you respect your partner dietary choices! Also, it’s not recommendable to send homemade food to someone with allergies as it may be cross-contaminated and could be a real problem!), candy and such are good ideas on what to send. PRICE OF THE GOODIES SHOULD BE BETWEEN 10-12 euros 🙂

-You must live within Europe. Sorry to all of you who are from America, Oceania, Asia and Africa, but worldwide shipping can get crazy!! 🙁 If any of you feels like to, you can “””steal””” this idea and guidelines and organise a version aimed to your continent! Message me maybe if you need help!

-You must sign in before December 1st (ie: leave your email and instagram account name below here of below the secret santa pic I posted on Instagram). YOUR PARCEL MUST BE SHIPPED BEFORE DECEMBER THE 10TH (so as to make sure we all get our parcel on Christmas time!)

-Please, do not agree to participate and then forget to send your parcel. It would be such a terrible thing to so to your partner :'( If you can, get your parcel tracked, so it doesn’t get lost!

-It’d be lovely if we all took a pic of the parcel we were sent and posted it on Instagram with the tag #foodiesecretsanta2014 🙂

Soooo, that’s it! If you want to take part, simply leave your email adress below in the comments or below MY SECRET SANTA PICTURE ON INSTAGRAM. Yes, you may regram it to help get people get on board, but make sure you write your details BELOW MINE. (Otherwise it’s impossiblefor me to find you all, sorry!)


 Feel free to post that picture in your instagram feed but please, remember to tell people that if they want to take part, they must leave their email below MY INSTAGRAM POST OR THIS BLOG POST. Otherwise it’d be impossible for me to find you all!

It’d be fantastic if you followed my account @honeyandfigsblog for updates and more info! (and oatmeal and cute dog pics, but hey what’s new!)

Thanks for joining and happy posting!

ps: sorry if I seemed bossy or something because all those caps and stuff – I really don’t want you guys to be confused!

Don’t hesitate to contact me either on here, via email ( or Instagram!

Thanks again! xxx

    Do we have to share our instagram ? Mine is private and I don’t have one food related yet 🙁 is it a problem ? Because I would really love to participate!

    Also I live in Switzerland, do you consider it a part of Europe ?

    Thanks so much for the wonderful idea!
