Top 5 Christmas Ideas to avoid Secret Santa Gifts Stress
‘Tis the season to be…stressed! As the end of the term approaches the festive season is well and truly upon us; but with the decorating of Christmas trees and the binge-watching of Christmas classics also comes the exchanging of Secret Santa gifts. Somehow you may have found yourself involved in multiple Secret Santa groups, and now you’re stuck buying several different gifts, all on a student’s budget. Not to mention the added stress of pulling out the name of a flatmate you’ve only spoken to once!
Whether you’re buying for a distant flatmate or a friend on your course, finding affordable gifts for students can get stressful. But don’t panic, here’s a list of the top 5 Secret Santa gifts ideas that won’t break the bank.
1. Home Accessories
Home accessories are always an appreciated gift, especially suited for students, who need to decorate their uni rooms. Whether it’s a scented candle, quirky wall hanging, or a personalised mug; there’s a huge selection of affordable home accessories to choose from.
2. Party Card Games
Everyone enjoys a good party game; they’re an inexpensive way to have fun as a group and maybe learn something weird about your friends!
3. Gift Sets
Nothing screams Christmas more than a good 3 for 2 Boots cosmetic gift set. Plus, if you happen to be part of more than one Secret Santa group, then you can get all your gifts in one single shop.
4. Novelty Books
Books such as ’50 Facts about Friends’ or ’10 Places to Visit Before You Graduate’ are a relatively cheap and easy gift. Novelty books aren’t only great for a bit of light reading, they also make a nice desk accessory. Two gifts for the price of one!
5. Fancy Food Gift Sets
There’s all sorts of food and drink gift sets available at Christmas, so if you’ve got a friend who loves chocolate or retro sweets for example, food is the ultimate secret Santa gift! This was you can get them something they love and a pretty Christmas themed hamper!
