If you have ever worked in an office or factory that runs a secret Santa you will know how much fun they can be. However, a lot of people struggle with coming up with secret Santa ideas. At first choosing a gift is relatively easy, but once you have been working in the same place for a few years the same kinds of gifts tend to change hands, so the secret Santa becomes less fun than it used to be.

Keeping Secret Santa Ideas Fresh

The first rule to keeping secret Santa ideas fresh is not to buy the same thing you or others did last year or the year before. So if someone bought a mini Santa hat for someone’s PC screen 2 years ago cross that off of your list. Instead, look for small gifts that are modern and fresh. For inspiration think about the latest gadgets and trends and look to buy something related to them. For example a fun iPhone cover would make quite a good gift at the moment.

You know who you are buying for, so try to buy a gift that is relevant to them. If they have just taken up walking and like Homer Simpson they may like the idea of a woolly hat with a Simpsons’ logo on it. However, be careful to buy something that suits their tastes, so if they only ever wear plain clothes forget the Simpsons’ logo and buy them a plain woolly hat instead.

Using the Web for Secret Santa Ideas

The internet is a great place to find inspiration. If you key in the search term ’secret Santa’ you will get back plenty of gift sites all of whom will sell something slightly different.

If you know someone likes football try the search term ’secret Santa ideas +football’. Use your common sense and if in doubt buy something else. Try not to offend with your gift. Things go wrong when someone who supports Manchester City receives a Manchester United mug as a secret Santa gift or someone sends the office prude a rude soap on a rope.
