I don’t know about you, but nearly every corporate office I worked at had a Secret Santa around the holidays. You pick a name, hoping it was someone you knew (or at least liked), and now you have to get something pretty cool, or at least semi-thoughtful for the under $20 budget your boss probably came up with.
If you’re lucky, maybe you picked someone you really know, and you know you’ll get them a gift that will put a smile on their face, or at least appreciate the sentiment.
Maybe not, and you got someone you may resent, or really have no idea what they do (are they in Marketing?), so this will be difficult.
But then, you find out they’re totally into dogs, just like you! Perhaps you discover this when you “casually” walk by their desk, and see a photo of their super adorable Goldendoodle. Or you’re heating up your lunch in the kitchen, and they talk about how they just adopted an adorable rescue puppy.
You’re saved! Now you can get something they’ll not only love, but they’ll probably brag about, or put on their desk?!
Here are some awesome gift ideas for your Secret Santa! Next week, I’ll talk about gifts to give your awesome coworker friend!
