In (just) our team at work it has been agreed to do a "Secret Santa" this Christmas. A stipulation is that it has to be a rude gift, a "Bad" secret santa if you will. Our manager is one of those driving this.
I have been drawn to give a gift to one of the ladies in the team. Whilst her sense of humor is "bad" and would find any rude gift hilarious (and suggested this Secret Santa) I am concerned about getting into trouble with HR/others in the company. Some people in other teams are "easily offended" (whether genuine or just like complaining) and would not approve. As a man giving a gift to a woman I think this makes it even more likely that these people would take offence (or "feel they should be offended") and complain.
How do I deal with this? I could suggest we go out for a team lunch and swap gifts then, out of the office, but no doubt word about the various gifts would get out.
Has anybody had experience with this?
