Christmas is coming in hot, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate. However, among the festive cheer is the silent dread of the whole office Secret Santa/Kris Kringle tradition. Buying Christmas presents is hard enough, but buying pressies for people you spoke to once in the kitchen while you waited for your toast to toast? Forget about it.

While the cutesy tradition is designed to bring colleagues closer together, but really it just makes our palms sweaty. Usually, there will be a few rules, like nothing over $50 and nothing too crude (because there’s always one person who takes it too far).

Here, we’ve done the hard yards for you and whipped up 18 Secret Santa gift ideas – all of them are under $50 – that’ll dazzle one and all. They’re also available online, so you don’t have to run around your local shops in a frenzy. Just kick back, click “add to cart,” and wait for the gift to rock up at your door. Ya welcome!

The Best Gag Gifts For Secret Santa

The easiest way to distract from the idea that you don’t know someone at all – is by getting them a joke present. Yep, humour is always a sure-fire winner when it comes to Kris Kringle.

This Magic Reveal Mug

Okay, but I’m obsessed with the idea of giving someone one of the Magic Reveal Mugs from Aussie brand Print Bar. Imagine all of the cute designs you can have printed and magically revealed when they pour their hot cuppa into this bad boy. It’s completely customisable, so you can have a personal joke printed on it, a sweet photo, a meme, literally anything you like.

This Funny Shock Pen

We’ve all got that one co-worker who always forgets to bring a pen to meetings. Why not prank them a little with this funny Electric Shock Pen? It has a shock value of 50 volts, so it should only make them jump a little.
