Secret Santa for a man. Help please.

(12 Posts)

5 pound limit. I don't think he drinks. He is very straight-laced and proper. He would be horrified by a 'joke' present.



Any ideas much appreciated please. Am stumped.

A small Stilton or pot of posh chutney.

Executive toy?
Pot plant?

A mug or a calendar?

Agree with nice cheese and/or some kind of condiment
Or what about pack of cards with interesting design

Another vote for calendar. I gave a match of the day desk calendar a couple of years ago?

Remember it's secret, if he hates it he'll never know it was you. also picked difficult bloke out of the hat

- A wind up torch? I gave dh one in his stocking last year (got it in Boots!) and he loves it!
- Haribo sour mix
- A mug with some hot choc sachets
- A scarf (thinking somewhere like Sainsburys/Primark etc might fit the price)
- um ........

I just bought this
LED Keyring It's not very exciting but it's very useful. I have a similar one and it's so handy.

Thanks for everyone's ideas though!

Tub of haribos?

I bought a set of those hand warmer things from boots for £6, my secret Santa is always complaining about cold hands, he also hates the concept of pot noodles so I will be giving one of those as well <evil cackle>

Thanks. Think I'll do cheese. He's quite 'posh' so a scarf or tie for a fiver would be unlikely to find favour, I don't think. Cheese, chutney and nice crackers maybe?
