Its that time of year again, and there always seems to be an inevitable group secret santa, whether its for colleagues at the office or with a group of friends. In my experience, secret santa budgets always tend to be under £10, so the majority of my gift ideas are in this price range, but I’ve got a few others above £10 as well! Please also check out my gift guides for Her and Him for even more ideas!
1. Funny Spider Coaster – £2.95
In this price range, I usually try and look for funny and/or cute but also not complete rubbish! This coaster is practical, and can be used at home or the office!
2. Typo Novelty Llama Pen – £3.50
This Llama pen makes me laugh! Its so funny looking but again, its something that can be used and isn’t just clutter!
3. Elf Christmas Socks – £3.50
How perfect would these socks be for walking around the house in during Christmas?! It would make a great holiday touch to any outfit, or finish off a Christmas outfit.
4. Panda Sticky Notes – £3.50
This would be so cute to have on your desk at home or at the office to make quick memos on when you’re in a rush! You can stick them up as well which makes for cute decorations around your work place!
5. Fizz Bunny Phone Ring – £3.99
I’ve got a phone ring myself, and its so useful for just having your phone prop itself up. This one can be stuck on any phone, so you won’t need to know what phone your secret santa has.
6. Fizz selfie wide angle lens – £4.99
Another thing I have and love, is the wide angle lens. You can use this for any phone and its so useful for taking group pictures, landscapes or just whenever you want more in the shot than your phone allows.
1. Alphabet Tote Bag – £5.00
This is a great gift for someone because not only is it super useful and versatile, hopefully it will encourage people to use less plastic, and is personalised too!
2. Arden Rose Tropical Leaves A4 DeskPad – £5.57
I would love this planner on my desk at work, as I write a to-do list, week summary, day summary and meetings/appointments I’ve got at the start of every week and day in my notebook anyway! This would be so ideal for someone who likes to be organised.
3. Unicorn Cookie Baking Mix – £6.00
For the baking lover or baking novice, a funny twist on a cookie mix! It even comes with a unicorn cookie cutter, so would be a jokey but fun present which they can use (and eat!). Even better if they have kids and it can be a family activity for them.
4. Vienna 3 Cup Cafetiere – £6.00
For the coffee lover, this is another thing which can be used at home or in the office. If your secret santa can’t go without a caffeine kick, this mini cafetiere would be perfect to have on their desk for a quick pick me up.
5. ASOS DESIGN bull dog slippers in tan – £8.00
How cute are these slippers?! Perfect for any dog lover who also want cosy feet, these slippers are so funny but will keep your feet warm this winter.
6. ASOS leather coin purse with tassel – £8.00
For those trips to get a latte and a snack during a long day at work, this is perfect to keep loose change in, as well as have your work ID slotted in the back so you don’t get locked out your building!
7. A Dozen Portly Penguins – £8.00
I know people say chocolates for secret santa’s are boring, but how can you say that with these adorable penguin ones?! And they’re from Hotel Chocolat so you know they’re gonna be delicious.
8. I COULD EAT A HORSE SPAGHETTI MEASURER – £8.95
One for a family man/woman or who loves a bit of pasta, or for someone who’s always hungry! I wish I had this at home so I know exactly how much pasta I need to make, as I always seem to get it wrong! I like how this is genuinely useful, but having the horse for the people that say “I’m so hungry, I could eat a horse” makes it funny as well.
Another one for the organised person, this journal even contains ideas and techniques such as habit trackers, sleep logs and handwriting exercises. It encourages you to write in it everyday and stay organised for the whole year!
£10 and over
Does anyone else forget their cable but remember their power bank?! This is a cute way to make sure you never go without, and have it loop around your keys for safekeeping. And its Disney! So thats extra points as far as I’m concerned.
2. PANDA HUG MUG – £10.00
Pandas are adorable, and this mug comes with a little cookie or biscuit holder so you can have your tea and snack in one place! It makes the panda hug your treat as well, which is just too cute and just what you need with your afternoon snack.
3. NUXE Christmas Cracker 2018 – £10.00
Perfect for anyone who loves a bit of pampering and luxury, its in a fun Christmas cracker as well, which gives it a festive touch!
4. Luckies Scratch Map Travel Edition – £11.95
For the office or group traveller, this map can be almost like a bucket list, where you scratch off all the countries you’ve been to, so you can reveal the colour underneath!
5. The Christmas Pick Me Up – £12.00
Another chocolate based gift, but its from Hotel Chocolat again! This is the gift that keeps giving, with individually packed snacks for a little pick me up whenever you need!
I couldn’t resist putting a Liz Earle product in here, and this hot cloth cleanser set is only £16.50! It comes in a cute case and also with the cotton cloth, so you don’t need anything extra.
7. Gameboy Alarm Clock – £24.99
How about a bit of nostalgia?! This is the most expensive item on this list, but if your budget covers it, is such a great gift for any 80’s and 90’s kid who grew up with the classic game boy!
