EIT Alumni Secret Santa

This year, we are holding our very first EIT Alumni Secret Santa! A pan-European gift-giving extravaganza!

To build on the bonds created during EIT Alumni CONNECT 2017, we wanted to do something to keep our community connected over the Christmas break.

Taking inspiration from the Reddit community, we have set up our own Secret Santa. We can't promise you gifts from the likes of Bill Gates or Snoop Dogg (, but knowing our community, there will no doubt be some innovative gifts flying around!

How does it work:

1. Sign up & get matched

Sign up for the exchange by completing our short form

On Thursday the 30th of November 2017, we will close signups and our dedicated team of elves will choose who you should send a gift to (this is the most important part; this is about the giving!).

2. Find the perfect gift & send it

Once we get in touch with you and provide you with information on your match, you'll have until December 15, 2017, to ship your gift.

We recommend spending around 20 EUR including shipping, but of course, what you spend is entirely up to you!

When you ship it, feel free to give us a message to let us know you've shipped it.

3. Receive a gift from your match

When you receive a gift, send us a photo of you with your gift, or post an amazing thank you note on our Facebook page!

There is still time to take part! If you would like to join in the EIT Alumni Secret Santa 2017 just fill in this short survey. -
