Ah, Secret Santa. That moment of panic in December when your colleagues remind you you’ve signed up to buy another gift. And, obviously, you then draw out the name of the one person you literally have no idea what to buy for.
Finding the perfect gift is a fine balance between not too novelty, and not looking like you’ve tried to hard or gone over the spend limit! But you can stop the search, because we’ve got the 20 best Secret Santa gifts for £10 and under here…
(P.S. don’t forget we’ve sorted out all your main presents over in The LFX 2015 Christmas Gift Guide).
For the gadget-y one
If you’re buying for the office techie and your Secret Santa budget doesn’t quite stretch to this year’s must-have gadget, get this Grip Strip and help them keep their existing tech in order. From dashboards to desks, it defies gravity to keep small gadgets and bits and bobs in place – it’s so cool we even wrote a Littlefish Loves feature all about it.
For the wine lover
Help your resident wine lover take their vice everywhere they go with this portable, resealable wine glass – because drinking out of the bottle in public is frowned upon (or so we’ve heard…). It’s insulated to help keep their wine at the perfect temperature, and the silicone lid will stop them spilling any precious drops. Cheers!
For the forgetful one
If you’re fed up of trawling the office for lost keys, maybe this is the perfect Secret Santa gift. All your forgetful friend has to do is attach this fob to their keys, and next time they lost them, all you have to do is whistle, and the Key Finder will light up and beep until the elusive keys are reunited with their hapless owner. Genius!
For the traveller
Anyone who always seems to be off on holiday will love this scratch map to help them keep track of their travels. Every time they’ve been to a different country or place, they get to scratch it off the map. The perfect present for globe trotters and explorers – just don’t complain when they pin it up in the office to show off…
For the undiscovered artist
Give wannabe artists a new place to unleash their creativity (or just procrastinate) with this chalk board mug, ideal for doodling, sketching and writing notes while mulling over a cuppa. You might just want to remind them that it’s not the most permanent place to store their masterpieces to prevent any mishaps…
For the moustached one
Sticking with the ‘mug’ theme, if you’re buying for someone who takes great pride in their impressive facial hair, help them protect their crowning glory with this moustache guarding mug that’s “tailored to cater for those with devilishly dapper facial fuzz”. The days of walking round with cappuccino froth in their ‘tache are over.
For the coffee lover
If you’ve drawn the office caffeine junkie who can’t even turn on their computer before they’ve had their first cup (of many), and is always on the warpath demanding to know who used the last of the coffee, this personalised coffee will do the trick. 227g of premium coffee comes in a tin with their name on, so there’s no excuse for kitchen thieves pinching their precious fuel!
…and the tea drinker
And if they opt for tea over coffee, go for a box from the Sweet Reason Company – homemade cakes and sweet treats including Salted Caramel, Baileys and Mince Pie Brownies, matched to complementary Tea Pigs teas.
And you can get 15% off with the code LITTLEFISHFX, to help you keep to your Secret Santa budget. Ho ho ho!
For the joker
Give the office funny man (or woman) hours of endless fun with these face beer mats showing 40 different faces – just clip onto your nose and you’ll be transformed. Make sure they open these before you head out to the office party if you think it could do with a bit more entertainment – it’ll definitely give you all a laugh.
For the one who’s always skint
Show your notoriously round-dodging, always strapped for cash mate that money really does grow on trees and let them grow their own money plan with this handy kit. So next time they “forget” it’s their turn to get the beers in, they have no excuses…
