Christmas is upon us, and that means it’s Secret Santa time. If you’ve ever pulled a name out of the office Secret Santa hat and immediately gone ‘who??’, this list is for you. Even if you don’t know your Secret Santa giftee other than to say an awkward hello when you’re both making a cup of tea in the kitchen, these ideas for Secret Santa gifts for £10 (ish) will still go down a treat.
If you do know them (and you’re absolutely confident they won’t be offended) we’ve also got ideas for funny and rude Secret Santa gifts.
And best of all? We’ve kept all of our suggestions to a sensible budget. So give a gift that will be appreciated without breaking the bank, with our list of ideas for thoughtful, risqué and funny Secret Santa gifts under £10.
And obviously, you’ll need a cracking Christmas card to go along with your gift – so pick one of our best-selling and best-beloved designs, like these ones:
Funny Secret Santa gifts
Get the giggles going in the office or give your friends a much-needed laugh with one of these funny Secret Santa gifts – and give a funny Christmas card to go along with it.
Taskmaster card game
Embrace your inner little Alex Horne and kick off your office Christmas party with a bang by giving the Taskmaster card game. Travel sized (for convenience) but packed full of laughs, this is a classic Secret Santa gift for £10.
A ‘personalised’ calendar
This one will require a bit of prep work, but it’s bound to be a gift that will keep them giggling all year round. Buy a standard desk calendar, but ‘personalise’ it with some tongue-in-cheek annotations – we’re thinking of adding notes in February to ask ‘so, how’s that New Year’s resolution going?’ or ‘bloody hell, this year is ageing faster than you are’ in May. Keep it tongue-in-cheek but personalised – may we suggest marking the anniversary of their hilarious/humiliating karaoke debut at last year’s summer party?
Thoughtful Secret Santa gifts
Not so much for the funny Secret Santa gifts? Give something a little more thoughtful, direct from thortful. It’s kind of our thing.
Alright, so it’s a touch over a tenner, but isn’t it worth it to give something they’ll truly love and value? Whether you give a pet portrait or a family photoshoot, give your Secret Santa the opportunity to capture memories that will last a lifetime. And even better, you can send it straight in a delightfully thortful card.
Plantable flowers in a card
Looking for an ‘oh, that’s nice!’ Secret Santa present for someone you don’t know so well? You can’t go wrong with flowers – but forget grabbing some wilting carnations at the garage. Instead, go for our plantable flowers in a card. The gift that keeps on giving, they can plant the little paper blooms and watch them blossom all year long.
Secret Santa gifts for her
If you’ve got a Secret Santa recipient that you don’t know well, or if you’re just looking for some gift giving inspiration, you can’t go far wrong with some of these Secret Santa gifts for her.
Luxury bath bomb
Give the gift of a proper pamper session with a luxurious ‘Silk Pyjamas’ bath bomb from Patisserie, right here at thortful. Infused with valerian root and French lavender oil to encourage restful sleep, you’re giving someone a solid night’s sleep as well as a cute Secret Santa gift for £10 – go you.
Snow day survival kit
We might not be getting a white Christmas (cheers, global warming) but you can help your giftee prepare for the inevitable late-winter cold snap with a snow day survival kit! In a box, pop some hot chocolate powder, marshmallows, some cute mittens or gloves, and a cookie cutter so she can make some yummy cookies – an ideal way to spend a snowy day.
Secret Santa gifts for him
Whether it’s one of your friends or a colleague you don’t know that well, these ideas for Secret Santa gifts for him are still sure to bring a smile to his face this Christmas.
If your Secret Santa loves a post-work pint, then make sure he’s kitted out to match with the help of our beer socks in a card! Super soft, super sustainable – we can’t necessarily say super stylish, but we’re sure they’ll make an ideal Secret Santa gift for him, and all for under £10.
Movie night in a box
You can rent tons of recently-released movies for under £5, which gives you some spare change to create a movie night in a box. Give credit or a gift card for his favourite streaming service, a box of microwave popcorn, some sweet treats and maybe even a cute retro popcorn box – presto, a relaxing movie night in a box!
