Blogmas #2: 10 gift ideas for secret santa


Hey friends!

Welcome back to day 2 of Blogmas! Today we are tackling one of the hardest group of people to shop for - Secret Santa! Okay so I've had two types of secret santa gifting experiences before - One, you pick a name out of a hat and you know who the receiver is and Two, you just buy a gift and it is numbered and whoever picks out the number of your gift, just gets that.

And today, we will be focusing on the second type of secret santa just because you have to get a gift that everyone will love just because you don't know who that person is going to be. Let's jump right in shall we?

£10 and under

Pomegranate Glass Candle £3.99

Aldi Candles
One section above I actually included the OG Jo Malone candle but I thought I'd add this in too just because I think candles are amazing plus this is a great dupe of the JM candles at such an affordable price!

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k: The bestselling book everyone is talking about (A No F*cks Given Guide) £7.49

WH Smith
If anyone asks for a book recommendation, this is ALWAYS the one that I'll give just because I love the style of this book, it is such an easy read yet so inspiring. It really helps you shift your perspective and basically get you on a path where you have your eyes set on. It would be exceptionally useful especially during the transition to 2019 where everyone is gearing themselves up for a 'new year, new me' kinda thing!


£15 to £30

Coffees of the World Gift Set £17.50
Whitard Coffee Gift Set

This beautiful box of coffee selection not only looks beautiful with boxes of coffee curated from all over the world, it also makes such a great gift because it has a range of brews to suit all moods and cravings! Plus they come in tiny boxes which makes it so portable for work or even on a holiday!

Moleskin 12 month daily planner £17.99

Moleskin
A planner is always such a great gift to help someone stay organize or just plan their time! Moleskin is know for their quality planners/notebooks and it is sure to be a hit with the gift receiver! If you're not a fan of the colour black, there is a pretty nice range of colours including navy, maroon and all that fun ones!


Cards Against Humanity Set £18.50
Card Against Humanity
If you haven't had a go at this game, you're missing out! It is filled with hilariously offensive sentences which would be great for anyone (maybe except parents?) and if you do get them this, they could whip it out and play it at the party! It's kind of a like a gift that keeps on giving ­čśéThis is also a great 'starter pack' because there is a whole range of 'upgrades' available for the receiver to add on!


Jo Malone London Pomegranate Noir Travel Candle £23.00

Jo Malone Candle
Who doesn't love a gorgeous smelling candle? Plus the Jo Malone packaging is so beautiful on its own and everyone knows that anything that comes in that little black box is something good! I picked this scent because I feel that it is very neutral and pleasing, nothing too sweet, fruity or overpowering, just something that everyone will enjoy!

£35 to £50

Afternoon Tea - Smartbox by Buyagift £34.99

Afternoon Tea - Smartbox by Buyagift
Buyagift
I love a little afternoon tea sesh and I think this would make a great gift for anyone because they could bring their loved ones or even you to enjoy this! It is also such a great little step away from all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and just nip into a beautiful place for a nice afternoon. This gift package includes over a hundred venues to enjoy the afternoon away so you don't have to be worried about the place being out of the way for the receiver!


Kiehl's Holiday Skincare Secrets £47.50
Kiehl's Holiday Skincare Secrets
Kiehl's
I feel like skincare is something that could not go wrong because everyone loves good skin don't they? Plus Kiehl's is known for quality skincare products and this gift set has some of the best sellers including the midnight recovery concentrate which I love so much! They are also suitable for all skin types so don't worry about it not being suitable for your receiver!


£50 and above


Marble & Copper Bar Tools Set £60


Bar Tools Set from Oliver Bonas
Isn't this bar tools set kit just the most beautiful? Even if your receiver isn't a drinker of alcohol, it would make such a nice statement piece in their homes with the copper and marble accents! Plus if you'd like, you could always throw in a bottle of gin or even a cocktail book just to give them a little idea of what they can do with this gift!

Hwyl Eau de Parfum £83

Aesop
Perfumes are always a great gift but it can be difficult to get a scent for someone you don't know, but hailed as the perfect scent for both genders, this perfume not only looks classy af, it also has a smokey musky scent which is great for the wintery season!
