ANTHEM, AZ - For the past four years Andrew Zychowski has been playing Santa, and hide-and-seek around the holidays.
He hides gifts of jewelry every day around Anthem, starting on Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve. He even leaves clues where they can be found.
Zychowski is owner of Andrew Z's Diamonds and Fine Jewelry in Anthem. He chooses public places to leave the boxes where people can easily find them. A note on the box explains his give-away and making it clear to the finder that it truly is "finders keepers."
"I've had women who have found them and come in with tears because it had been so long since someone had given them a gift," he said.
This year, he and his son Scott, are offering some clues to help people hone in on the gift location. Pictures and maps are posted on the store's Facebook page directing people to the area where a box had been left.
"Before we never really were able to track who found the gifts," said Scott Zychowski.
The gifts range in price from $25 to $100 dollars.
