Looking to add some sugar and spice to your Santa sack? We’ve got 12 funny Secret Santa gifts that will make you Ho, Ho, Ho.
Winter is here, the cocoa is brewing and the decorations are up: it’s officially the most wonderful time of the year. With only 25 days ‘til Christmas, the scramble to find funny Secret Santa gifts is on. So here are 12 ideas to spark some creativity.
1. Book a celebrity video message
This funny Secret Santa gift probably trumps them all. It’s the most versatile, eco-friendly and guaranteed instant delivery! You can get a celebrity video message from footballers to musicians and politicians; personalise it with a script, and save it to your device to watch over and over again. You can set your budget from just £5, so this really won’t break the bank.
You could play a prank on someone and book a celebrity video message for a big fan or No.1 hater. The options are endless. We’ve got tonnes of celebrities (and incredible impersonators) at Thrillz, like Matt Le Tissier, Ed Sheeran, Queen Liz, Jesus Christ, and even TikTok star, Luke Hamnett.
2. Virtual meet in Santa’s Grotto
We couldn’t not include Father Christmas himself on the list! Whether the person is naughty or nice, this funny Secret Santa gift is the perfect way to spread that Christmas cheer.
If you really want to push the boat out, you can get a one-on-one with Santa himself. This is a great present for the youngsters, too.
3. Give them the gift of Grinch
Perhaps you’ve drawn the short straw and got lumped with the Bah Humbugs of the world who loathe Christmas entirely. You might be searching for funny Secret Santa gifts to sprinkle some magic into their lives. Well, what better way than to send a funny message from Mr Grinch?
The best part is that you’ll remain completely anonymous, so there’s no risk and all the reward!
4. Get roasted by a comedian
Comedians are notorious for their ability to roast audience members (and each other). If only you could get a personalised message from a comedian to roast your office buddy or best friend – oh wait – you can!
With comedians like Hal Cruttenden, Archie Curzon, and Robyn Perkins, you’ll be left laughing until you’ve got sick-pack abs. Make the endless funny Secret Santa gifts one to remember with an early Christmas roast.
5. Personalised photo pillow
You might be googling endlessly to find personalised gifts for Secret Santa to no avail. So how about printing a picture onto a pillow?
You could opt for a cute picture or a jokey one. (We’re fond of Ryan Gosling, but that’s personal preference.) Photobox has some great printing options on pillows of all shapes and sizes for under £20 – get to it!
6. A shout-out from Puppet Santa
If you’re struggling for ideas, then a simple shout-out from Puppet Santa is the way forward! You can get a personalised message for Christmas, or congratulate someone on their promotion, anniversary, baby gender reveal and more.
Another idea is to get Puppet Santa to read out a fake (or real) Christmas list! All proceeds go to charity, too, so no one can call you a Scrooge.
7. Buy a T-shirt with a department slogan
Office Secret Santa can be a little awkward. In this case, you should buy your person a T-shirt with a jokey slogan that relates to their job title or department. Amazon have loads of options, from SEO copywriting to product development.
This is truly a great option if you have absolutely no idea what to get your person, especially if you don’t even know Brian from Marketing.
8. The standard whoopee cushion
It’s an oldy but a goody: the standard whoopee cushion. Funny Secret Santa gifts need not be complicated, and practical jokes are the ultimate LOL. You can usually find these for less than £2 – what a bargain!
Seriously, no matter how old you are there is nothing funnier than flatulence. We’re all just big kids in adult bodies at the end of the day...
9. Sarcastic mugs for a colleague
Upgrade your mug game with a funny message imprinted. You can find mugs that relate to work, office culture, personality… the list goes on.
Prices range from £5 to £10 and it will easily top the charts for funny Secret Santa gifts. Hopefully, they’ll have cameras off in the Zoom work meeting...
10. A swear-words colouring book
We all know a potty mouth who just needs to take a chill pill. So we recommend buying them a colouring book filled with glorious rude words.
This idea combines the mindfulness technique of colouring to find Zen, whilst incorporating their favourite words. A double whammy!
11. Personalised Picture Puzzle
Do you have a mug shot of someone? Or a particularly embarrassing picture that deserves to be framed? Well, go the extra mile and get it printed on a puzzle.
Give them something to remember and curb their boredom. The traditional company Ravensburger have a huge selection, with puzzle pieces starting from 74 to 1,000. Great for even the most inept of jigsaw solvers. The range on Banter Cards is also pretty good, too.
12. A Pret subscription
Do you know someone that is just addicted to caffeine? Like, won’t have a conversation with you until they’ve had their cup of joe… Then consider getting them a Pret subscription for one month – it’s only £20. They will love you.
