Secret Santa is all fun and games until you're assigned a co-worker you've exchanged less than three words with or a family member who's impossible to shop for. Last-minute panic buying is not what you want for this festive season, which is why we've curated a selection of chic, funny and useful secret Santa gifts that your recipient will love.
We're officially abolishing unsustainable, tacky presents because - let's be real - they'll just end up in the bin. Instead, we've included skincare goodies, homeware pieces and delicious treats they can indulge in during the run-up to Christmas and beyond.
So, whether you're shopping for an acquaintance or your best friend, here is our list of secret Santa gifts under £10 that might inspire you to find the present they didn't even know they needed until now...
