Top 10 office Secret Santa gift ideas

As everyone knows, along with the office Christmas party, Secret Santa is a great way to bring the office together. 

Colleagues are usually randomly assigned a person to whom they must anonymously give a gift. However, it can be difficult to find a gift that a colleague will truly value, especially when there is a price limit involved and you dont know the person that well. We’ve all struggled with it.

It is often hard to decide on a gift to buy a colleague at Christmas, especially as it is supposed to be a personal gesture,” explains Andrew Johnson, director-general of the UK Gift Card & Voucher Association. 

“Sometimes, you have to buy a gift for someone you know very well, or even your boss. For this reason we’ve selected a handful of novelty gifting options that can appeal to a variety of personalities within a company, making sure everyone will receive a gift that theyll enjoy.”
