It’s that time of year again, when colleagues get together and pick a name out of a hat for Secret Santa! According to the latest festive research by CV Library, 74% of Brits enjoy getting involved in the festive gifting game, and whilst Secret Santa can be a great way to bond with colleagues in the workplace, it’s not without its challenges.
It’s all fun and games, but some people can struggle to know where to draw the line. Although, nearly half of Brits think a funny gift is a great idea, only 1.5% think a rude present is acceptable. After all, you don’t want to cross the line and cause offence, as this could create a hostility and see issues stick around way after Christmas is over.
We all know what it’s like when you pick someone you barely know and don’t have the foggiest idea of their interests, hobbies…or worse yet, you pick the boss! Whether you’re drawing a complete blank or just need a sprinkle of inspiration, CV Library has found what the nation believes are the best Secret Santa gifts!
You can’t go wrong with a novelty gift, at least 41% of Brits think so, whether it’s some Christmas socks, a desk game or joke book, these gifts are festive, fun and best of all harmless. Looking for something a bit more personal? 26.1% think that personalised mugs are a good way to go, you could simply stick their name on it, or if they have a favourite saying get that printed on it!
Christmas is a very busy time and some people don’t want the extra stress of searching for the perfect gift for a colleague. In fact, 17.9% of Brits say that you can’t go wrong with something generic, from sweets and chocolates to alcohol and stationery (after all, who wouldn’t like a funky notebook for the new year?).
