Ashley has been on her own all her life. She feels even more alone this Christmas as she searches fruitlessly for a job. The seasonal cheer around her only rubs salt in her wounds as she scrapes by to support herself and her dog, Dash. But her neighbor, Nick, knows exactly what to do. He offers her a job, to be his assistant in the best work-helping others. There's one catch that Ashley must honor though-she can't tell anyone that her new boss is a sort of Secret Santa, helping others anonymously. Through her new job, Ashley meets Will, a writer for a business magazine who uncovers what Ashley is doing, and more importantly, Nick's involvement. As Ashley and Nick help people in need, Ashley tries to protect Nick's secret, and her own heart, while Will must weigh the consequences of what he does. Written by

The diner, Spanky's, that is the setting for many of the scenes in this movie is a real diner located in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The brick building next to it is also real. The background has been added to make it appear to be in Chicago. See more
The wide shots at the beginning indicate they live in Chicago, but there are several locations that are obviously in Utah, including the hospital where Nick is admitted (Timpanogas Hospital is in Provo/Orem) and the Gallivan Center, where Ashley and Will go walking (obvious sign) is in Salt Lake City.

Is that Santa's list?
Uh, yeah. And you're not on it.
Oh! Neither are you.
We are in a toy store.
