Arran Williams, November 30, 2018

It’s that time of year again! The tree is up, the music is in full swing and most importantly – it’s time for SECRET SANTA! With so many different characters and personalities in the office, it can sometimes be difficult to find the perfect gift. But don’t fear as we are here to help!

For the one who likes a cheeky drink

This person is always the first one in the pub on a Friday lunchtime. Whether wine, beer or spirits is their chosen poison, you are spoilt for choice to satisfy their drinking needs this year! Our Suggestions: Wine bottle glass - from £13.00 Grow Your Own Craft Beer - from £9.99

For the one who loves a joke

They’re the life and soul of the party. Always filled with banter and ready to tell a funny story. You know that you can’t just get them any old mundane gift, it just wouldn’t feel right! Our suggestions: Crap jokes - from £6.99 Pie face game - from £6.00

For the one who’s expecting/have kids

There is excitement in the office as this one is expecting a little bundle of joy. Perhaps they already have kids and are a doting mum or dad. Either way, you want to get them a gift that entertains them AND their little ones (but mainly them!) this Christmas: Our suggestions: Funny baby grow- from £14.99 Test Your Baby’s genius book from £4.99

For the one who loves to travel

Asia? They’ve done it. Africa? They’ve been there, done that AND got the T-shirt. This person knows a thing or two about the world and are probably planning their next adventure as we speak. Our suggestions: Scratch Map - from £9.99

For the one who really REALLY loves tea

They typically drink at least 8 cups a day and panic when there is a shortage in the office! We’re talking about the tea lover. When choosing their gift, just make sure that you have the correct brand of tea, or you might have a fight on your hands! Our suggestion: English Tea Shop Assorted Fairtrade and Organic Tea Bags Gift Tin from £11.59

For the one who you really don’t know

You’ve probably shared about 5 words with each other and that was when you both happened to be using the printer at the same time! With no personal jokes to go off, or anything for that matter, your best bet is to keep it as generic as possible. Think Christmas, You can’t go wrong with that! Our suggestions: Pass the sprout from £6.99

For the one who likes it really hot

They’ve completed the hot chilli challenge and have the certificate framed on their desk. They may have tried almost every chilli going, but they’re still up for another chance to show off their talents. Our suggestion: Evil Hot Gummi Bears from £6.99

For the one with green fingers

There’s always at least one that fancies themselves as the next Alan Titchmarsh or Charlie Dimmock. Their dream weekend is spending it in their garden adding new and exotic plants (you’ve seen the evidence all over their Instagram!) Our suggestions: Plant Theatre Bonsai Trio Kit from £12.49 Grow Me – Sprouts from £4.95

For the one who loves their grub

They always have the best restaurant suggestions and definitely know their linguini from their tagliatelle. Food is a passion for them and they are always there when you need to know the perfect way to roast a potato. Our suggestions : Cookin' With Coolio from £10.99

For the one who’s never without their phone

They are constantly glued to their phone and get distracted whenever they hear it buzz! They have pretty much every accessory for it that you can think of, but are always on the lookout for more. Our Suggestions: Mobile phone water proof case from £7.99 Grip strip from £6.99

For the one who loves to get crafty

The most artistic person in the office. They are constantly making things (and showing them off proudly to everyone!). Simply getting them a piece of art just won’t do. They want to get their hands dirty. Our suggestions: Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book from £7.95 Stained Glass Craft Kit from £13.67 We hope this has given you a helping hand, now you can head off out into consumer madness and find the perfect gift. Merry Christmas and happy shopping!
