How many people can put their hand up and say they struggle buying gifts for people at Christmas? Who can say that Secret Santa’s are the hardest to buy for, being on a restricted budget and usually with a limited knowledge of the recipients likes and dislikes. Not to worry though, I have put together a guide to what I think makes a good Secret Santa gift.
The office Secret Santa recipient is one of the trickiest people to buy , they are the one you don’t talk to often enough or have personal conversations to know what they personally like. For this person I like to stick to the basics, a bottle of wine or chocolates, maybe a nice candle or a scarf. If you want to be a little more personal take a look at what your colleague keeps on their desk. Do they have hand moisturiser? Do they wear gloves or a hat to work? Looking to see what they bring to work is a good indicator as to something you know they will get use out of. 
Below is a list of some of my favourite Secret Santa gifts I have found: 

The Chocolate Company Milk Chocolate Stirrer-John Lewis £3
Cowshed Wreath Cracker Skincare Set-John Lewis £10
Alphabet Filled Scented Candle-Next £4
It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm-£6
