Secret Santa Ideas

So here comes the end of year madness again. You’re juggling Christmas dinners with extended family like a pro, but the secret santa has you stumped. You’ve drawn the short straw and have to buy a gift for a person who literally has everything, or worse, wants nothing!


Here are our top 8 budget gift ideas that have that special thoughtful touch:

1. Spritzers, Manhattans, Cosmos - the Cocktail Kit!

One of our favourite gifts to assemble is a cocktail kit. Assemble a package containing your recipients favourite cocktail ingredients. A cocktail glass, swizzle sticks, miniature spirit bottle or two, mixers and a recipe card.

2. Summer Survival Pack

Head to your chemist and round up an assortment of lovely cosmetic items. A little thoughtful beauty pack containing lipgloss, moisturiser, mascara, bath bombs, a couple of magazines and a cute beach bag. You could even include an inflatable beach toy to add some cheeky fun to your gift.

3. Stationery Lover

Who can resist beautiful stationery? An unusual or pretty pen with notepad, paperclips and next year’s calendar.

4. Tea Tempter

Head to your nearest tea store and get samples of three or four different teas. Pop them in a cute teacup and include a tin of biscuits.

5. House Proud

There’s nothing as luxurious as a beautiful puffed up lux cushion. Pineapples are super trendy right now. Find a pair of unusual cushions wrap them with a luxurious wide ribbon and you’ll look like you’ve spent a fortune!

6. Garden Lover

Garden loving people are easy to buy for. A new plant will never go unloved. Include a set of new gardening gloves and a garden ornament. Done!

7. Traveller

A luggage scale can be found in most $2 stores and always comes in handy. Put together with gorgeous luggage tags and a lonely planet travel guide.

8. Book Worms

Make a special bookmark using photographs or cut out pictures from old magazines. Make it personal with words or quotes you love. [inspiration: https://au.pinterest.com/pin/133419207680712665/]
