What is Secret Santa?

A tradition as old as time, secret Santa refers to a mystery gift swap that can be between a group of friends, family or co-workers. You add all the names of the group into a hat/bowl and each person draws a name out. That person then has to buy a secret gift for the name they pulled out. Usually, everyone will bring and open the presents on the same day. Rules can differ, but this tradition seemingly comes from the Scandinavian “Juklapp”.

Where to Find Cheap Secret Santa Gifts?

Sometimes groups set a budget for the secret Santa to take the pressure off of everyone involved. If your price limit is anything under £10, we’ve got you covered. There’s plenty of unique finds that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, see some of our favourites from the World Wide Web below.
