Oh god, office Secret Santa
81

hyperborea · 03/12/2021 23:57

I HATE office Secret Santa. The terrible pressure to get something pretty or thoughtful or funny for someone you don't really know, for almost no money. Without further destroying the environment by buying some pointless novelty crap which will go in the bin five minutes later. But if you don't participate, you are officially a Scrooge. So, anyone want to help me out? Middle aged guy, nice chap, got a sense of humour, no real idea what he's interested in out of work. £5 limit. That's it. You have as much to go on as I do Grin. Help!!

@RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie

And I don't believe there's such a thing as a 'nice' fountain pen for £4.50.

I was thinking that.

I'm going to sound extremely bad tempered but all the hand wringing at COP26 has now been followed by the annual festival of useless tat to add to landfills.

A belt.
Scarf.
Rubix cube.
Nice pen for the office?
Does he wear glasses? Novelty spectacle holder (looks like a nose)

I was in a shop called Flying Tiger earlier.
They had a sort of helmet that you put on that has Velcro over it. It came with 3 x fabric poo shapes that you throw at the person wearing the helmet. Was about £5
