Secret Santa is a strange thing. On one hand it’s a great way to minimize your spending, on the other you have a minimal budget to buy the lady from marketing something personal and unique. £5 is hard to spend, and you’re trying really hard to be both thoughtful and cheap. What do you do if you don’t know them very well? Tricky, tricky. Here’s my gift guide to great secret santa purchases, that are £5 and below. I’ve also included some for men (you can thank me later).
Calvin Klein Nail Varnish, £3.49 from Direct Cosmetics
This comes in well under budget- but looks like you spent over. Available in a bunch of shades, this is thoughtful and inoffensive.
Cupcake Bath Fizzers, £5 from Next
Cute and well packaged, this is a present that would make most women happy.
New Look Flower Hair Band, £4.99 from New Look
Great for the office fashionista, this pretty hairband is very desirable.

Turn their bath into cool coloured goo- a great gift for someone with a playful side.
Union Jack hair Straightener mat, £4.99 from Tk Maxx
Know someone who loves her GHD’s? Keep her surfaces safe with this cool heat mat.
Burton beanie, £6- but currently 20% off
Not the most exciting gift, but practical!
Chocolate pills, £4.95 from Prezzybox
Do they get man flu a lot? This is the best gift for them then!
