Kris Kindle or Secret Santa, either way; it’s easy when you know how. Even with a low budget, you can give a gift they’ll love! Let us tell you how.

Giving gifts, but don’t know what to buy? Here’s how you can narrow it down and hopefully get some inspiration:

Something to PLAY:

Gift a game. Something fun, interactive and simple will never fail. 

Something WARM:

Comfort gifts are the best! Something cosy and warm will always be a strong option. Anything from socks to fleeces, or even ski base layers if they’re always mentioning that they’re cold!

Something PERSONAL:

If you know the person for a long time you should know they’re interests and it will make it easy to buy a gift…but it’s not always the case for secret santa! But you can still get a personalised gift, with vinyl printing or embroidered clothing or accessories that you know they will love!

Something to make them LAUGH:

The best thing about secret santa is that it isn’t too serious! It’s light-hearted and spreads some festive fun! Whether it’s something personalised with a funny nickname, typo or meme, or even some knee pads for your colleague that fell off their seat recently. Be creative!
