FormAssembly Secret Santa 2020: Continuing Our Remote Team’s Holiday Tradition

Happy Holidays from the FormAssembly team! It’s been an unprecedented year, with remote work becoming more common than ever all over the world. Here at FormAssembly, our team has been fully remote for more than a decade, and we know how important it is to continue to foster community, connection, and company culture from afar.

Because we’re not able to gather in person for the holidays, every year for the past six years, our team has participated in a Secret Santa gift exchange. All participants compile wish lists, check out each others’ wish lists for ideas, and send and receive anonymous gifts in the mail.

In this blog, we’re recapping some of the gifts that our teammates sent and received during this year’s FormAssembly Secret Santa gift exchange!

Pratik Paun, Partner Development Representative, received a Bluetooth speaker from his Secret Santa.
Ilyas Ashirov, Customer Success Manager, received a portable power bank so he can charge his phone on the go.
Dustin Phelps, Design Team Lead, got a book that will help him learn how his house works.
A Secret Santa sent a desktop planter, pens, and Ready Player One to Steven Watkins, Marketing Automation Specialist.
Kari Shaevitz, Director of Finance, got an electric wine opener, a water bottle, and a phone wallet from her Santa.
QA Engineer Clint Blakey’s Secret Santa sent over a “liquid courage” decanter and a Punderdome game.

Asuka Goya, Product Manager, received an Okinawa art print from Lisa Ledbetter.

Alex Bariyev, Technical Product Manager, received the book Greenlights from his wish list.

Angel Speagle, Talent & Culture Coordinator, got a wall-mount jewelry organizer from her Secret Santa.

With gifts ranging from books to gadgets and more, this year’s Secret Santa was a success! We had a great time picking out gifts from each others’ wish lists and sending them to our teammates’ respective locations across the U.S. and beyond.
