Secret Santa Gifts Under £5

Buying a gift for your Secret Santa (whether you pulled a random name from a hat in the office, or you got lucky and picked your BFF) is a big deal.

While the £5 spend rule means you can't go overboard, the choice is endless when it comes to shopping on the high street and online.


You can't go wrong with a jolly pair of socks (£5 for the four pairs above from New Look? BARGAIN) or a retro-inspired sweet tin. Yes Giant Strawbs, Flying Saucers and Fizzy Cola Bottles (Harvey Nichols, £4.95).

In fact, anything that says Christmas-on-overload all over it is perfect. The 'Brrr' headband (Primark, £2) and the *flashing* Christmas tree beanie (George at Asda, £5) are guaranteed to go down well, as is the festive print hot water bottle (£5).

We've found a whole line up of festive treats perfect for Secret Santa giving this year - the hard bit is deciding on just one of them.

As for where to bag these goodies for your Secret Santa? We'd recommend checking out the Christmas collections at Tiger - you will love everything, and you can go practical (crimbo candle holders/moustache motif Cellotape) or silly (beer pong set/hand-held disco ball/light up bow tie).

Then there's The Body Shop, Asos, Topshop, Superdrug, Boots and (go for something you can personalise!) that boast huge Christmas gift collections to suit everyone.

Going for chintzy-cool novelty pressies is always a winner.
