Kris Kringle Ideas for your Christmas party

christmas party gifts, KK, Kris Kringle, Secret SantaSo your work has organised a Kris Kringle (Secret Santa) and you have a budget of around $10 – $15 to buy a gift for one of fellow workmates.

That’s not so hard, right?

But this year you have managed to draw some one out of the hat that you a) Don’t know very well. b) Hate with a passion, or c) Even worse … your boss!

There are a few different ways to go when selecting a Christmas present. You could:

  • Buy something they can use, such as a coffee mug.
  • Buy something thoughtful, maybe a picture frame with a team photo. Or some nice gift soaps.
  • Buy something they can eat or drink. Chocolates are always appreciated (if they are not diabetic), or maybe a nice bottle of wine.
  • Buy a tasteless joke present. The present is from someone anonymous, so why not go for maximum shock value!

You could try to gather a little bit of information on who you are buying for, if not from them, maybe another workmate who is closer to the person. They could be a keen gardener and a plant may be the perfect gift for them.

If they are the quiet type and spend most of their lunch break reading, a book or magazine may suit them. Magazines can be great as their are plenty of variety to suit their individual hobbies such as cars, computers, craft etc.

If you do go for the tasteless joke KK gift. Be sure to arrive at the Christmas party venue early, otherwise your fellow workmates may be able to later identify you as the person who bought the boss the leopard print G-string!
