Check Out the Secret Santa Gift Guide and Buy that Tricky Christmas Present

Secret Santa is a tradition we can find either difficult or delightful. It can be hard to buy for someone in the office you've hardly met, but we have a range of ideas to help get you thinking. There tends to be a budget of £5/£10, so you don't have to break the bank to get a great gift.


Clothes and Accessories

Christmas jumpers are a good gift to give as it ties in with the festive occasion! A great xmas jumper can be picked up for under a tenner and with a range of styles to choose from, you needn’t worry about a lack of choice.
T shirts are a good present to give as you can cater towards a person’s interests and make it personal . If there is a sports club, band or film they like then a merchandised t-shirt can do just the trick, but make sure you know their size first! If in doubt, opt for a non-offensive funny t-shirt and make them laugh.

Novelty Gifts

Sports memorabilia can go down well with the fanatics out there. All you have to do is find out your recipient’s team and get some novelty items with the team badge on it. Toys can be ideal for the office and clothing is great for social occasions, so team memorabilia is likely to be a hit.
Novelty mugs and glasses are a great way to inject comedy or personality into a gift. Whether they are for the office or at home, mugs and glasses are used everyday so you can’t go wrong. 
Small game sets can go down a treat and encourage social interaction within a group. Games such as Beer Pong, Snakes and Ladders, Cards etc. are universally known and likely to go down well as a gift.


If in doubt, plump for food! Chocolate and sweets usually go down a treat around Christmas, so why not make a personal selection box? Try making home-made treats and give a personal touch to your gift. 


Candy Canes and Chocolate Santas are great for this time of year and they are usually very cheap. Tins of sweets and shortbread can be obtained for a little cost, so make a collection and keep your Secret Santa receiver sweet.

We hope you have been inspired by the choices here and are now ready to buy your Secret Santa gifts. You can buy most of the above gifts for under £10 at
