Struggling to find the perfect Secret Santa gift?
It happens: you pull a name out of a Santa hat and the doom sets in. The price limit’s been set and everyone else is gushing over the perfect gift they’re going to get for their secret Santa as the deadline ticks ever closer. If you’re struggling for inspiration, we’ve put an edit together of our favourite Secret Santa gifts from laugh out loud gag presents to sophisticated treats for the boss without a sense of humour.
Secret Santa Gift Ideas
If you’re buying something for your friendship group, everything’s on the table. Whatever your budget, there’s everything from affordable beauty gifts for the makeup guru through to a slightly more decadent Prosecco Pong set from Urban Outfitters (because beer pong is so 2016). Gag gifts are always a great shout and the royal family tea bags as well as the beard ornaments had us giggling in the office when we came across them.
It’s trickier ground finding the perfect Secret Santa gift for the office, as one over the top gag gift could definitely put somebody off. Unless you know your person really well, it’s best to err on the side of caution and we’ve sourced some absolute crowd pleasers: gorgeous card holders, phone cases and interior design accessories up their shelfie game.
Are you still in the gift giving spirit? We’ve got even more present inspiration in our Christmas gifts for her, Christmas gifts for him, Christmas gifts for mum and Christmas gifts for dad edits. Just – uh – don’t break the bank.
