Secret Santa Gift Ideas
Secret Santa can be a bit hit and miss. Sometimes you pick a person you don’t know very well, and it’s a pain to think of anything. Should you attempt funny? Should you spend top of your budget? Here are some Secret Santa gift ideas to help you, no matter your budget.
Cute, cuddly and festive. If you really don’t know the person you’re buying for then stick with the basics like slipper socks, mugs and notebooks.
Personalised Yearly Diary – £10 – Etsy
So long as COVID calms down – fingers crossed/prayers – this is still a valid present idea for Secret Santa. It’s simple but effectively execute and relevant for work.
I always want to be inclusive and if you have a colleague who you don’t know that well and is vegan they can be slightly challenging to buy for. So stick with a perennial favourite of hot chocolate this Christmas.
If you don’t know what you get, truly don’t have a clue then get them a mug. Everyone drinks something.
I’m someone who often gets gifted notebooks – which is fine by me – but I like quality paper and Moleskine is one of the best in my opinion.
Who doesn’t love a LUSH gift set? This Christmas special includes a bath bomb and a shower gel and makes a perfect little Secret Santa gift.
Glam I Am Christmas Set – £13.50 – Benefit
I work with a lot of women that put a lot of effort into looking pretty every day. A lot of women – not all – love make-up, so why not get them something they might not treat themselves to?
Melt Warmer Set – £14.99 – Yankee Candles
Home decor and gift sets are amazing Secret Santa gifts. People don’t often treat themselves to gift sets and treats, so treat them as their Secret Santa.
Peter Rabbit Book Ends – £20 – Paperchase
I work in the publishing industry, so maybe this is a little niche, but I love these Peter Rabbit bookends. And since I work in the book industry, I feel a lot of my colleagues would like them too.
If you want to treat your co-workers then treat them with a brand and a usable product. Everyone loves – and uses – tote bags.
If you’re going to buy alcohol go fancy. Alcohol off Tesco’s shop floor is fine and tasty, but it’s easy to add a little glamour with an expensive bottle out of Selfridges.
There should be something there for everyone, and I hope it helps when you’re buying Secret Santa gifts this year. Merry Christmas.
