So the day has finally come when everyone at your workplace writes their name on a slip of paper, throws it into a hat, and holds their breath. Of course I'm talking about office secret Santa. And why is everyone holding their breath, you ask? Because no one wants to get stuck with a bad gift giver. And no one wants to be that bad gift giver. But fret not, because we've rounded up a list of 52 secret Santa gift ideas your office friends will actually want, no matter what your price point is. From desk supplies to sugar-coated snacks to flashy (yet functional) accessories, we've got you covered. So without further ado, my friends, read on. It's time to start shopping.
Lucite Desk Collection Stapler
Have you ever seen a stapler as elegant as this one? If you said “yes,” you’re lying.
Don’t you just hate it when your phone dies and you’re nowhere near a charger? And for some reason, it seems to happen all the time. Don’t leave your friends stranded in the same situation. These super affordable and super cute iPhone back-up chargers are the way to go when picking out a useful (and pretty!) gift.
Fact: plants make for better living spaces. So don’t you think they’d do the same for working spaces? Order a simple little succulent to decorate your coworker’s desk. It’s like giving the gift of life, kinda!
This candy-striped “To-Do List” is the sweetest thing ever. Put one in your office friend’s Christmas stocking. If you want to get extra creative, write in some events on every few blank pages… coffee dates, anyone?
What’s better than a bento box? A bento box filled with candy! An assortment of eight sweet treats (including candy cane caramels and champagne bubbles), this baby blue box brings all kinds of happiness.
A fun gift to give — so long as the person you draw has a good sense of humor. This adorable burlap bag doesn’t actually contain coal, though. It’s filled with black popcorn kernels which can be used as a delicious snack later.
I’m a strong believer that a pretty work space makes for a productive work day. Help your office friends beautify their desk with a gold-rimmed baby milk vase in his or her favorite color. Be an extra wonderful secret Santa, and put some small flowers in it before you sneak it onto their desk top.
