The ultimate Secret Santa gift guide for the office.

By Anush Pervez

So, the time has come again and you’ve either picked your work bestie or someone you barely talk to (or see for that matter). Either way, you’re probably wondering what suffices as a satisfactory gift with your given budget. Not to worry, we’ve got you sorted. Carry on reading for a list of gifts you can’t go wrong with. With Black Friday sales coming up, now has never been a better time to tick one thing off your Christmas list.


1.     For the pamperer


There’s always that one colleague that is the go-to person for hand cream, pain killers, deodorant and maybe even toothpaste. Why not make them their own little pamper box filled with all sorts of office toiletries? Or to make things easier, certain brands have begun selling their pamper selection boxes and you’ll definitely find one that fits your budget.


2.     For the one who personalises everything


Personalised gifts are such a good idea for a lot of people. The question is, what product do you get personalised? Mugs, calendars, cosmetic bags, phone cases, tubs of Nutella… the list is endless.


3.     For the one who is always cold


A HOT WATER BOTTLE. A hot water bottle comes in handy all year round, but especially in the winter months. What’s more, hot water bottles are available in all shapes, sizes and textures so whatever your budget may be, you will find one to suit your gift receiver. (PS. why not buy them their favourite animal shaped hot water bottle?)


4.     For the one who never has enough charge in their phone


Portable chargers are great, but they are a pain to carry around with you all day. Why not opt for a chargeable phone case for your gift receiver? They charge your phone and protect it at the same time, a win-win situation. Plus, it probably means you can finally get your charger back.


5.     For the new homeowner


Cute glass sets, room diffusers and candles, ornaments. Anything that a new homeowner probably wants but hasn’t found the time/funds to buy it yet, makes a perfect Secret Santa gift.


Our list is short but certainly sweet and definitely fits the description for a lot of Secret Santa receivers in your office. With what 2020 has been, we suggest buying your gifts from small, independent companies.
