Secret Santa is one of my favourite things to do over the Christmas period, whether it be between family, friends or something you do at work it’s such a fun little festive activity to get involved in and to anyone who thinks it’s not fun you’re a grinch.
For me whenever I take part in secret Santa I always pray that I get someone who I know relatively well, it just makes my present buying that little bit easier.
So for anyone struggling for secret Santa gift ideas I’m going to help you guys out and list some ideas that hopefully help you out. I don’t know about anyone else but we always set ourself a budget when doing this, we chose between £5-£10 at our work place but I’m terrible at keeping to budgets.
I’m someone who is an absolute sucker at being creative and making my own things although I don’t do it a lot, but this year I have so many creative gifts planned for people which I’m really looking forward to start making, I don’t wanna post my ideas because then I’m telling people what they’re getting, but to still help you guys out if you wanna be creative and make presents for people, think about the sorta things they like or like to do, and hopefully that will trigger some imagination for you guys. Talking about being creative I really should get started on mine and pronto.
If you aren’t creative or just really can’t be bothered to sit and make gifts, I mean it is Christmas after all and you could be spending time getting merry or stuffing your face with chocolates then how about just getting your secret Santa something they love, whether that be a little box of their favourite treats, or maybe even a little pamper/grooming box, if you know your secret Santa well enough then I’m sure you could find something that will be perfect enough for them.
Secret santa gifts can always be funny too so you could always buy your secret santa a novelty gift, these can be found in so many different shops and they don’t even have to cost a lot either, for me I always look in places like Tesco, Asda & Sainsburys for novelty gifts and they always have cute little gifts, perfect for your secret santa.
If you really struggle at buying gifts the best thing I could suggest to buy your secret Santa is a gift card, this is a super easy gift to buy someone then that way they can buy something they want/need and it makes your life a whole lot easier.
I hope this has helped you guys if you are participating in secret santa this year and are struggling with gift ideas.
Also I don’t think I’ve said secret santa enough in this post, look there it is again.
