10 Secret Santa Gift Ideas

Last Updated : 21 June 2020

Secret Santa’s are when a group of people enter their names into a hat and everyone picks out a name of someone they have to buy a Christmas gift for. This practice saves everybody a whole lot of money and ensures each person gets something to open.

It’s very popular in workplaces but there is a rise in friendship groups doing this as the focus is taken off the materialistic side of Christmas and people look for ways to save money during this expensive holiday. This year my family has even opted for a secret Santa, with us all agreeing to buy one gift with a cap of £70 rather than buying 7 gifts each and spending at least twice as much money. It makes organising a hell of a lot easier also.

We’ve had a little look online and picked some cute idea for a Secret Santa with a £10 and a £20 limit in the hope that it will offer some inspiration.


Mummy Elf Family Christmas Pyjamas

Mummy Elf Pyjamas from George at Asda

Our first gift idea is these cute as anything Elf Christmas Pyjamas from George at Asda. They fall exactly at the £10 limit which is always satisfying. These say Mummy Elf, however, you can also get Auntie Elf, Nanny Elf and Mrs Elf so you can pretty much find a pair for anyone.

We love the bright colours and playful elf body design on the front plus the cuffed legs will keep you warm. Gift these to your secret Santa this year and they'll be snuggled up warm by the fire on Christmas eve waiting for Santa in them for sure.

51 Things To Do With The Family Poster
