One of the best things about Christmas has got to be the presents – and not just receiving them either. However, if you find searching for the perfect Secret Santa gift a bit of a struggle, feel free to borrow some of our great gift ideas…
When picking Secret Santa gifts it’s always nice to give a gift with a personal touch. And luckily, our gifting category is brimming with options for everybody. From glam accessories, stocking fillers to cosy winter warmers. Here are our suggestions to inspire you when planning those little gifting extras…
For the One With all the Festive Cheer
These novelty socks are the perfect gift. A treat to unwrap and for your feet. If your Secret Santa loves everything about Christmas then these will see her through the holidays in style – talk about an ideal stocking filler.
For the One Who’s Always Cold
If she’s always wearing a scarf in the office and starts wearing tights a month before everyone else, this gift is an easy one. Save her catching a cold this winter and get her a stylish (but snug) bobble hat. Two gifts in one, this cosy cream hat is also part of our Tree’s for Cities charity collection, meaning £1 off each sold will go towards funding Edible Playgrounds that inspire children to grow and eat healthy food – talk about a gift that keeps on giving.
For the One Who Likes a Little Luxury
If your secret Santa this year is the friend that’s all about bubble baths and swanky candles then treating her to gorgeous new scent this Christmas is a great option. This fresh fig and cassis eau de parfum is the perfect woody floral scent for the winter months and is a great edition to any self-care regime.
For the Animal Lover
Always showing you pictures of their pup? Then a Christmas dog jumper is not only the perfect gift for your Secret Santa pick, but also for their furry friend too. Swap the catwalk for a dog walk and let the laughs roll with this stylish festive sweater made especially for dogs.
For the Party Girl
For the Cosy Comfort Lover
After the party, comes the cosy evenings on the sofa. If your Secret Santa loves duvets and winter snuggling, treat them to a pair of super-soft slippers. These mules have a super soft faux-fur lining and are the perfect antidote for party heels or heavy winter boots.
For the One Who’s Hard to Buy For
Everyone’s got that friend who’s really difficult to buy for, the one that pulls a Rachel from Friends and returns everything. What do you get for such a person? A gift card, of course, so they can choose it themselves. Problem solved!
Get Creative and Make Your Secret Santa Gift Yourself…
Fill a Jar or Basket With Their Favourite Things
See how well you know the person you’re buying for and try to fill a basket or jar with their favourite goodies. Their favourite sweets to snack on during the working day, a mini nail varnish, lip balm, nail files or even an eye shadow.
Make Them a Homemade Body Scrub
Why not treat your Secret Santa to a homemade gift? This luxurious honey body scrub can be made using delicious ingredients found in your kitchen.
Step 1: Pour around a 60ml of honey into and heat-friendly bowl and pop into the microwave to warm up for a few seconds until it’s a runny constancy – but not too hot to handle.
Step 2: Stir in two tablespoons of any oil of your choice (olive or coconut works really well!)
Step 3: Stir in about 100g of sugar (we prefer brown, but white works too!) and then pour your mix into a pretty sterilised container, such as a mason jar.
Step 4: Use ribbon and a handwritten label to personalise your handiwork, and the job’s done!
