Secret Santa Struggle?

By Laura Kemp

Yes, it’s edging closer to that time of year when the chances are you face a wide spread dilemma – what on earth are you meant to get as a secret Santa present for your colleague?

Perhaps you may not know the staff member that well, do you choose a ‘funny gift’ and hope you don’t offend? Or do you ‘play it safe’ with a simple gift set and hope for the best?

We have some ideas at the ready to lend a helping hand!

Consider choosing a suitable gift that matches the individual’s job title. Zazzle offer fantastic gifts for an accounting enthusiast! They even offer the opportunity to create your own gifts such as mugs, hats and iphone cases.


How about that colleague with a competitive spirit? I’m sure an office game of desktop basketball or bowling might go down well – both of which are available at The Gift & Gadget store for under £5!


Desktop Bowling – £5.00     Desktop Basketball – £4.99

Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more unique? Not On The High Street have some fab gifts available.  We particularly love the Secret Santa Coffee Shot gift set and the Grow Your Own Coffee Plant Kit – both perfect if your chosen person struggles to begin their day without a caffeine kick!

There are so many things you could choose for your colleagues, whether they are a foodie, a car fanatic or a gardening enthusiast. If you can find out one key interest your selected person may have it can make it easier to find a present on a theme. However if this isn’t possible do not despair – there are always some old favourites to buy!
