Secret Santa Gift Ideas
If you’re taking part in the office Secret Santa, you might have gotten lucky and picked the name of someone you know really well, but there’s a better chance that you pulled the name of someone you’ve never really said more than “good morning” to. Sorry Charlie, but time is ticking down to buy your Secret Santa gift, and if you’re still stumped on what to buy, here are six suggestions.
Hand Lotion and Hand Sanitizer
This would make a great gift for a female co-worker because it’s something she can keep on her desk, and every time she uses it, she’ll think of you. If you’re going to go this route, just make sure that you get something with a light scent, rather than an overpowering one.
Candy is pretty much a universal gift that everyone loves. You might want to stay away from giving chocolate or anything with nuts though in case the person getting it has an allergy.
Another universal gift, there are so many choices and you can get something generic, or one more suited to their personality.
Scarf and Gloves
This is such an easy to buy gift for anyone. And, if you want to step up your game, try to match the scarf and gloves to whatever color coat your co-worker wears most often.
Business Card Case
I did this one year for our company Secret Santa and it worked really well. I drew the name of someone I didn’t know very well, but asked around to find out what sort of things they liked and ended up buying a Star Wars business card case and it was a hit.
Coffee or Tea Sampler
If you’re buying for someone who’s always walking around with a full mug, find out if it’s tea or coffee that they’re drinking, and then gift them with a sample pack. They’ll love it.
