OK guys so for everyone participating in the exchange of gifts or Secret Santa as its traditionally called; you probably always find yourself in this same situation every year when the work christmas party is approaching and you have decided again, 10 years in a row to take part in secret santa.
So what exactly is Secret Santa just incase you don't know???? Here's a brief definition from google
"an arrangement in which a group of friends or colleagues exchange Christmas presents anonymously, each member of the group being assigned another member for whom to provide a small gift, typically costing no more than a set amount."
Not only is this fun; this also gives you the opportunity to receive and give pressies and keep them under the tree for that exciting time of xmas morning.. I particularly enjoy partaking in secret santa, it's an exciting time for me to see what people end up getting me. Fingers crossed, I've always been quite lucky to get lots of nice handy stuff...
Now there's always a budget of a maximum of either £5 or £10, so I have been doing alot of research for you guys as I always do 😉 and I have put together a list of great Secret Santa ideas for you to be able to buy within the budget and not having to break the bank.
What I tend to do first is get the person a gift based on a little bit I know about them so here are a few categories that'll help you determine what to get them.

Foodies like me 😄
Coffee/Tea addicts etc
Writer/Researcher just like me; just incase you don't know, I love to write and hate to read lol 😄
