Kris Kringle is a cheap and  nasty form of  passive aggression endorsed by upper management and paid for by the employee.

Apparently, spending $10 on a person who you care very little for is ‘to connect at heart level with each other more deeper’ (yes, that is a direct quote) and an ‘opportunity for [workers] to use their imagination and creativity to come up with innovative and fun gift ideas’. What? To use one’s imagination to ponder how many times that particular piece of tat has been regifted. Feel remorse for your contribution to global warming.

So Merry Christmas, my fellow cubicle slaves and just remember an Oxfam Unwrapped Chicken is a tax deduction for you and a screw you for the dearly intended.
