10 Winning Ideas for Your Office Secret Santa
13th Dec, 2018
Have you had your Secret Santa draw at work and been left feeling lost for what to do? It can be challenging, especially if you have a small budget, because you know there's a high level of expectation.
Unless you know your recipient really well, buying a gift can feel like a lot of pressure, so it's nice to have some guidance before you start spending and, hopefully, this article will help!
To make life easier, each of these options is available on Amazon Prime (which is a godsend if you're a last-minute-dot-com person), although you may be able to pick some items up within pop-up shops, such as MenKind.

For the person whose mood changes every day (or every hour), or even a busy manager who needs something to show when they can and can't talk - this is perfect.
Mood Swing-Desk Warning Sign (£4.99)
There's usually an office hothead and, if they can handle a bit of good humour, you'll have a lot of fun with this gift! It's one of those gifts that might actually be used more often by the recipient's team than the recipient themselves. Your fellow colleagues will always be prepared for a mood swing on the rise!

Found yourself paired with the office stationary lover? A fact about these people - they can never have too many notebooks, especially if they're funny, cute or quirky; they just can't resist them, so this is an ideal Secret Santa gift idea.

It's a Punderful Life: A fun collection of puns and wordplay (£7.50)
