   Largest Secret Santa exchange-world record set by Boots
 
  BEESTON, Nottingham, UK -- MORE than 1,200 people, staff at Boots, turned into secret Santas and exchanged their gifts, setting the world record for the Largest secret Santa exchange.

   Photo: Enthusiastic staff at the Boots headquarters in Beeston were determined to create a new World Record and make the event the largest secret Santa exchange ever.

  
Leanne Wells, the Christmas advertising manager at Boots, said: "We have been doing secret Santa for years here but never on this scale. "It has been amazing and everyone has really come together for the festive spirit. "It bowled me over the amount of people that supported this."

 
 All staff taking part in the event squeezed into the main corridor of the building to exchange their gifts.
  
  Preparations for the event started about a month ago, with teams organising who was buying for each other between themselves.

  The basic budget was 5 and some teams decided to bring their own variations to the event one deciding that each gift must be something people can wear.

  Gary Burton was one of two official adjudicators required at the event. He said: "It went very well. Everyone seemed really happy and it was nice to be asked to adjudicate something unique like this."

  Staff at Boots doubled the amount of people needed to get into the record books- the previous world record for the most secret Santa presents exchanged was 618.
