Whether you’re struggling to think of what to buy your colleague for Secret Santa, or looking to cram your beloved’s Christmas stocking with some fun, novelty treats, we’ve scoured the Internet to find five playful gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
1. Gifts Less Ordinary
This Aladdin’s cave of personalised gifts has everything from keyrings and cufflinks to manicures sets and cheeky socks, which can be customised with a name and message for the lucky recipient. We love these “if you can read this… please bring prosecco” hidden message socks ($163.55) which are ideal for ladies who like bubbles and have a sense of humour.
