It’s that time of the year again, folks. With Chrismahanukwanzakah on the horizon, offices, classrooms, and sports teams across the country are preparing for Secret Santa gift exchanges. Nothing exposes how little you know about a person like having to buy a gift for them. Think about it: How much do you really know about Sheryl in accounting? Not much? That’s what I thought.
Even if you’re not besties with the person you randomly selected out of a hat, you can still get them a gift that they will appreciate. You can use the little you know about a person to make it look like you put in way more thought into their Secret Santa gift than you actually did. #LifeHacks.
Chances are, the way your co-worker acts around the office can give you some insight about their likes and dislikes. Use this gift guide to your advantage this holiday season and get them a gift that will make them go, “Awww! This is perfect! How did you know I wanted this?”
Ahead you'll find the best Secret Santa gift ideas based on the type of people in a typical office setting. All you have to do is browse the categorizes, determine which one best fits your Secret Santa match, and buy them the best gift anyone who shares a cubicle wall has ever given them.
