Gift Guide: Secret Santa

All over the world, Secret Santa is a long-running tradition. And it has its advantages, right? Rather than rushing around for countless gifts (especially when it feels like the many moving parts of life collide come Christmas – your best friends, your work friends, your family and, of course, your kids), you get to focus on that special one and get it just right.

To help you out, we’ve pulled together our very favourite Secret Santa gift ideas, broken down by price, so you can snag the best secret santa gift no matter the person or budget.

And knowing, of course, that the Christmas countdown can now officially begin. (Yes, we said it).

 

The Family One - Christmas Gifts Under £60

WOODLAND BEARS FOLDAWAY OVERNIGHT BAG

A Cath Kidston classic and ultimate pick of the bunch for Secret Santa gifts. With a reverse coated lining that's wipe clean and water resistant – our foldaway overnight bag is made for real life. From beach trips, to swimming lessons, hospital bags and overnight stays … and when you're not using it, just fold it up into its pouch and stash it away.

CLARENDON CHECK SMALL POCKET BACKPACK

Don’t let them carry old baggage into a new year, gift them a brand new backpack, instead. Compact, yet plenty big enough for all their life-litter, our small pocket backpack is ideal for commutes and staying hands-free. In our hand-drawn Clarendon check print, in a classic shade of red that goes with everything.

MILLFIELD DITSY PJ’S

You can never go wrong with a nice set of PJ’s. Made of soft, brushed cotton in a range of fun, festive prints, our classic pyjamas have a handy elasticated waist band and soft tapered leg for extra comfort. Our advice? Size up for added slouch.

With lavender and camomile, our sleep set comes with skin-soft eye mask, pillow mist, bath sachets and body cream and comes ready-to-wrap in a gift box. It’s one of those magical gifts that looks so much more than it costs.

THE WORK GIRLS ONE - CHRISTMAS GIFTS UNDER £20

FESTIVE PARTY ANIMALS CANDLE

Even if you’ve been working at home for most of this year, popping a little something festive through the post is guaranteed to brighten up their day. Our Christmas Wishes candle blends warming cinnamon and clove with bittersweet orange on a creamy tonka and vanilla base. And is made of a soy-blend wax for a longer, more scent-rich burn.

WOODLAND BEAR TRAVEL CUP

For their commute, or just for a better chance at getting a hot cuppa at home, our bamboo travel cup is insulated to keep their drinks hotter for longer. A functional gift that’s full of full in our woodland bear print. (Yes, that bear does have a jumper on).

MAGICAL WOODLAND HAND CARE GIFT SET

Taking care of our hands has never been more important, our hand care gift set includes a handy travel santiser that kills up to 99.9% of germs and a handcream to replenish and restore your skin’s moisture and softness. All popped into a handbag-friendly pouch.

(top handwashing tip: swap out singing ‘happy birthday’ to yourself for the chorus of Beyonce’s ‘Love on Top’ – it’s the same timing but infinitely more enjoyable. A slight dance recommended).

THE OFFICE ONE – CHRISTMAS GIFTS UNDER £10

When it comes to the office, getting Secret Santa presents right can be tricky (because chances are you don’t know everyone all that well). Here we’ve picked our reliable, everyone-likes-them all-rounders.

FESTIVE PARTY ANIMALS MUG

Can you even call it Christmas if it doesn’t include a Secret Santa mug? You should have just enough change from your tenner to stuff it full of chocolates for the perfect all-rounder present.

FRESON HAND CREAM & ROLLERBALL

When in doubt, go for smellies – the all-round fail-safe Secret Santa gift for women. Our handcream and rollerball set is the perfect handbag due, for looking after the hands (anyone else feeling like a snake with all this hand santiser?) and adding a touch of scent. Top tip - rollerball our sweet cassis and rose scent onto your pulse point, and lock it in by layering over the handcream.

CHRISTMAS WISHES TIN CANDLE

You can never go wrong with a candle. The scent blends warming cinnamon and clove with bittersweet orange on a creamy tonka and vanilla base.
