Secret Santa is supposed to be fun, but when you get stuck with trying to find a gift for the co-worker that you’ve only ever spoken to once, it can be tricky. 

Fear not! All of these gifts are under R100 and make the perfect Secret Santa gifts – not too personal, not too generic.

For the coffee addict

  • A stylish coffee cup that they can keep at their desk for their regular caffeine fix would be just perfect. How about this pretty mug with gold accents from @home for only R50?

  • Or, an insulated coffee-themed thermos flask so that their beloved java never goes cold, even when they got caught up in those looooong meetings.

For the foodie

This one should be easy! Anything which smells and tastes great or can add a new dimension to daily dinners will go down well with a foodie. Some of our favourite options include:

For the artsy girl

  • A pair of cute mustard-coloured pumps to brighten up a dull day at the office. At only R99, they’re a bargain and are bound to bring a smile to someone’s face!

  • A statement ring or pair of earrings in a bright colour are always appreciated if your Secret Santa recipient is a jewellery-wearer.

For the explorer

  • A travel tag to make sure baggage is easily identifiable on their next adventure!

  • This contoured sleep mask which means you never have to compromise on your shut eye, no matter where in the world you are!

For the colleague you don’t know so well

This is the toughest one of all. Instead of opting for chocolates or bodywash, why not go for one of these options which are just a little bit more unusual but will still please pretty much anyone you gift them to.

  • These gorgeous stemless wine glasses from Mr Price Home are only R50, so you can buy two! They’re a great addition to anyone’s shelf and the copper colours are absolutely perfect for the festive season.

  • You can never go wrong with a nice scarf for a female co-worker. They’re practical and pretty, and you can claim you bought it because ‘you thought it would suit their hair/eyes/skin perfectly.’

A mini iPhone fan is a cool, fun gift that you’ll no doubt see your recipient using during the middle of summer. Who wouldn’t want a portable cooling device?
