Let’s be honest, last Christmas was a bit of a washout. Work Christmas parties were virtually unheard of, apart from those that were held virtually, of course, and a Christmas lockdown meant that festive cheer was pretty thin on the ground. But this year, hopefully, things are looking a little more like normal.
So, with in-person festivities returning for many workers this Christmas, these are some of the best gift ideas for your Secret Santa this year.
1. The Amazon Smart Plug
One of the hottest tech gift ideas around this year and with a price tag that’s firmly in Secret Santa territory is the Amazon Smart Plug. It gives you voice control over your lights, fans, coffee machines and any electrical socket, so you can operate all of your electricals in a Covid-safe way. Just plug it in, open the Alexa app and control it using your voice.
2. Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker
We’re staying firmly in the tech field with this tiny speaker that’s perfect for the office DJ. This portable speaker can play for up to 24 hours on a single charge, which is more than enough Christmas songs for most offices. It’s also keenly priced, so you can say “I appreciate you, in a way”, to your colleagues without breaking the bank. You can check it out here.
3. Savvy Infusion Water Bottle
Stay hydrated and enjoy the beautiful flavours of fresh fruit at the same time with this water bottle come infuser. The bottle is reusable and provides a healthy and inexpensive alternative to soft drinks and juices while delivering an exciting twist to the somewhat boring taste of water.

4. Fruit for everyone
If you’re buying a gift for your team, then what about a regular supply of fresh fruit delivered to your office door? Fruitful Office delivers baskets of fruit to workplaces to help to keep staff energized, engaged and healthy. This is also a particularly good gift during the winter months when colds and flu are about and immune systems are on the wane.
5. Wine Enthusiast Push Corkscrew
You know what‘s really annoying about wine? Having to fight against a cork for 10 minutes just to enjoy a drink. Rather than being restricted to screw top bottles for the rest of their lives, buy your colleagues a handy wine opener that effortlessly pops the cork right off. A single charge lasts for eight hours, which should be more than enough for one evening.
