Does anyone else think that Secret Santa is almost as good as actual Christmas? It’s like a little mini present to hold you over until the 25th! And if you’re participating in more than one Secret Santa, well then, you’re just the luckiest! Sometimes it’s a bit tricky if you pick someone for secret santa that you don’t know very well, but my rule of thumb is that if I pick things that I know I’ll find funny are cute, then it’s probably a safe bet. I found all of these goodies while looking for ideas for my own Secret Santa, and the best part? Everything is less than £10!
pug lunchboxes: I am forever losing tupperware, and sometimes forget to pack food because I have nothing to put it in. These little lunchboxes are so cute, I’d be sure to hang on tight to them, and the different sizes mean nothing is off limits!
travel cup: who doesn’t love a good cup of tea, especially in winter? I always find myself gulping down a hot drink before bracing myself for the cold, but with such a cute travel cup, I could just make a fresh one to go!
the hipster colouring book: colouring books are very trendy these days, aren’t they? I liked the look of this one because it’s definitely a conversation starter, and looks like lots of fun!
photo booth props: I love a good photobooth. Who doesn’t? With this cute little kit, I can have the photobooth with me all the time!
clueless pencils: Do I need to explain this one? As if!
grow your own christmas tree: every Secret Santa should have some kitschy little gift, and this one fits the bill. Wouldn’t it be fun to try to grow your own Christmas tree? I can’t imagine it being any more than a few centimeters, but a silly gift nonetheless!
monogrammed mug: I was given this mug a few years ago for a Secret Santa and I love it! I use it more for decoration than actual drinking, but I’ve kept it all these years because it’s still kind of personal. I love getting things that have a G on them!
very british problems: I follow Very British Problems on Twitter (you should too, here!) and when I found out they’ve published a book, my first thought was, that’ll be a great little gift. It’s so funny, and pretty much guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
dipsticks names: I love Charades. And Pictionary. And any game that involved a whole lot of people trying to guess something. What a cute little game to pull out when you’ve got friends over!
sass & belle you are awesome mug: I love a good mug. That’s all there is to this one, really!
