Christmas Gift Guide: 7 actually useful Secret Santa ideas under £20

Struggling to find a Secret Santa present that won’t end up in the bin? Look this way…

There really is no way around getting a naff Secret Santa present. Restrictive budgets, awkward office politics and a lack of inspiration mean that both the buying (and receiving) of such a gift isn’t usually considered the peak of the festive period. 

Our advice? Go for something that’s actually useful. From a chic Fortnum and Mason metal straw that helps save the environment, to red wine stain remover which will no doubt be needed at some point over Christmas, we’ve picked out Secret Santa gift ideas that won’t end up in the back end of a draw (or the bin).

Take a browse and pick a last-minute-something for your name out of the hat, that will actually get a raised eyebrow of appreciation at the office party than a chorus of groans. 

Splash zone 

When Aunty Jean gets carried away on the karaoke machine and red wine spills, be ready. £7

Mugged off

Give a none-too-subtle nod to that person who dodges the tea round in this year’s Secret Santa. £9.95

Eco warrior

Save the planet, one silver-plated straw at a time. £25

Quick fix

“Yeah it does look good doesn’t it. I slaved away all day.” *Slides baking kit into the bin* £14.95

Stuck on you

Stick Mayka tape to any surface then use toy building blocks to go up walls and around corners. £6.99

A Christmas miracle 

Socks are a tradition up there with the “Holidays are coming” ad. Make it count with Jollie – for every pair bought, a pair is given to the homeless. £15

A bag is for life

Not just for Christmas. Get it now: Palace sells out quicker than you can say, “Quicker.” £10

Fresh creps

Keep trainers box-fresh with Adidas’s cleaning kit. £19
