It’s that time of year again, you pulled a name out of the Secret Santa hat and now it’s time to embarrass them in front of the entire office (not in a spiteful way obviously, it’s all in the name of banter). There aren’t many people who take Secret Santa seriously, it’s a laugh, and it always gets office banter flowing at the office Christmas party. People either love it or hate it, but if you have a good sense of humor it can be great fun and create bundles of laughter and jokes that will last throughout the year. If you’re struggling for ideas on what to buy which can be certain to embarrass your colleague, here are a few ideas that may help you for inspiration:
Embarrassing Photo Mug
Get hold of an embarrassing picture of them and get it printed on a mug so EVERY cup of tea or coffee they have at the office this embarrassing picture will be on display. They won’t be able to get away with not using it as the whole office will know about it and it will quite obviously be theirs! If they don’t use it, they’ll get more banter for being a spoilsport. You can make your own mug at Zippi and many other online sites.
Insults and Comebacks Book
If your colleague is forever giving rubbish comebacks in the office, this book is the ultimate Secret Santa gift for them, which is sure to give everyone a good laugh. You could write on the gift tag that ‘you thought he/she could do with some help in this area’. The book is even pocket sized so they can quickly whip it out their pocket when they can’t think of a good comeback!
Perfect for the lazy colleague that’s allergic to work, vitapens are a useful yet quirky gift. The vitapens are shaped like capsules and will help your colleague to highlight a problem in a piece of paperwork. They are also great for those who are constantly poorly or always suffering from a hangover.
Grow Your Own Girlfriend/Boyfriend
If you get the singleton of the office for secret Santa, this gift idea is ideal, just ensure they can take the banter and you don’t actually offend them. The girlfriend or boyfriend toy is 6cm and can expand up to 600% when placed in room temperature water. It shrinks slowly back to its original size when taken out of water. The best thing is the toys don’t argue, complain, snore and always shuts up!
Did you get the person in the office that constantly goes on about having everything? All the latest gadgets and gizmos, wears all the latest trends and you’re sick of hearing about it? Then this ‘nothing’ gift is the perfect gift for them. The gift is filled with absolutely nothing (except atoms and other scientific things that make up air).
