5 Secret Santa Gift Ideas That Won’t Burn Your Pocket

Die liao lah… Only a few more days to Christmas…
(Are you panicking cos you haven’t prepared anything for your office Secret Santa’s gift exchange?)

Seriously, I feel you. Buying a present or a gift is the MOST pressurising thing in the world. Sometimes, you can think for hours, days, months and still, you are just stuck there not knowing where to begin. And to be honest, buying a gift when you are obligated, DOUBLE WORSE.

But for the sake of world peace. I’ve put together 5 things you can buy for your colleagues/co-workers on this year’s Secret Santa gift exchange that won’t burn your pocket and won’t look cheap!

(All these items could be found less than S$30)

Towel

SECRET SANTA GIFT IDEALS - CHRISTMAS 2017 (8)
Who doesn’t need a towel? Everyone of us needs a towel. And we need to change them every 6 months to keep those hygiene going on. Towels are practical, inexpensive, simple and such a pleasant gift to receive. Go for plain colour tones. Don’t be a smart alec and buy those with prints, especially floral prints! Gosh! Leave those to your mum or grans. You don’t want to spread motherly love in your office for this.

You can get nice towels at Ikea, Spotlight, Takashimaya and Robinsons

Satin Pillow Case

SECRET SANTA GIFT IDEALS - CHRISTMAS 2017 - SATIN PILLOWCASE (7)
Why satin uh? Because satin pillowcase causes less friction on our hairs. This means lesser hair fall, neater hair when you wake up and a smoother surface our heads to lie on. Thinking it will be too feminine if a guy receives this? Hell no! If you are afraid of rejection, leave a note on the benefits on it like I’ve mentioned. He will thank you for cutting his risk of balding.

You can get satin pillowcases at Spotlight and Robinsons

Earphone

SECRET SANTA GIFT IDEALS - CHRISTMAS 2017 - EARPHONES(5)
This device is simply useful. It’s good to plug these on while working, while on way to work or back home. This means no more listening to emo Chinese radio music that is played on some colleagues desk and the power to transport yourself into your world of trance.

You can get good earphones at Harvey Norman, Courts and Departmental Stores

Electric Toothbrush

SECRET SANTA GIFT IDEALS - CHRISTMAS 2017 - ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH (6)
Yah, it sounds weird to get an electric toothbrush. But hey, I’m not being brainwash by Oral B’s advert that is constantly airing on Cable TV, but I simply notice lots of colleagues in my office loves to brush their teeth after meals. And since they like to brush so much, why not upgrade their manual toothbrush to an electric one? Since electric toothbrush cleans better~

You can get it at Guardians and Watsons

USB Travel Power Adapter

SECRET SANTA GIFT IDEALS - CHRISTMAS 2017 - USB TRAVEL ADAPTER (10)This is like a super multi-purpose gift. Instead of promoting exploding power banks like I’ve just recently experienced, I thought very hard about this last inexpensive yet practical gift. And yes! What’s safer than a power adapter? Since we are Singaporean and we all love to travel, this is a superb gift for travel, home and office use. You can save alot of luggage weight having this.

You can get them at Lazada, Qoo10, Harvey Norman, Courts and Sim Lim Square
