Secret Santa gifts for the boss

Secret Santa

Secret Santa is a great idea for a big office. It means everyone gets something to unwrap, without breaking the bank. If you get someone you don’t know particularly well, it can be frustrating trying to work out what they’d actually like. Usually, the jackpot is getting someone you’re fairly close to, as you can gauge whether they’d like something funny or something useful. If you pull your boss’ name out of the hat, this has the potential to fill you with dread. You certainly don’t want to purchase anything too risque, however, everyone appreciates a laugh. We’ve put together some ideas for the best Secret Santa gifts for the boss.

Our ideas for the boss…

…who loves a hot beverage

For any tea and coffee lover, you can’t go wrong with a mug, especially one that’s personal to the user. We love this one from Etsy: https://etsy.me/2C7Dwqi

This one is basic but still very useful, particularly if your boss likes a takeaway coffee. The Stojo On the Go Coffee Cup comes in a range of colours and can be taken on the go. Most places now charge less if you bring your own cup, so it’s saving money as well as the environment: https://amzn.to/2pvWkgq

…who deserves a little relaxation

If your boss spends their days running around and is always stressed, something to help them unwind will always be appreciated. We love this massaging eye mask, which can relieve headaches and tension: https://bit.ly/2NbU0nA

A good idea for a boss who likes to decorate their office and stay relaxed. We think this mini zen garden is a great addition to any desk and improves concentration. The stone even has an incense holder for the ultimate relaxing lunch break: https://amzn.to/2Cn3giN

…who likes the odd glass of wine

A great gift for a boss who loves a glass of wine. This good day, bad day glass combines functionality with a little laugh: https://bit.ly/2NemahX

…if your budget can stretch

If your budget is a little bigger and your boss has a furry friend, we think this personalised dog lead holder is perfect. You can choose the breed of the dog and the name for a great piece of homeware. https://bit.ly/36x9QAO

Depending on the budget, an experience day is always a great gift. Consider paintballing, a drive in a nice car or even a nice meal. Virgin Experience Days’ website has a range of fantastic things to do which are sure to put you in your boss’ good books: https://www.virginexperiencedays.co.uk/

 

If your workplace is doing Secret Santa, ensure everyone’s identities are kept secret until after all the presents have been opened. Bonus points if you can guess who purchased your gift! If you’re having a party or work meal, ask everyone to unwrap their gifts then and get everyone guessing. Still looking for somewhere to have your work meal?
