Great Gifts for People You Don’t Really Know

Co-worker birthdays and secret Santa, friends of friends, as well as distant relatives: what do they all have in common? You have to buy a gift, but you have absolutely no idea what to get! There comes a time in everyone’s life when it’s their sacred duty to provide someone that they don’t really know with a gift. So where do you start? First of all, you don’t need to break the bank, but try not to skimp too much! There are some very good, affordable gifts that are ideal for people you don’t know that well.

Spoof Newspapers

For something a little different why not get a personalised, spoof newspaper. There are a range of headlines available, from “Joe Bloggs voted boyfriend of the year” to “Breaking news! Jenny Bloggs turns 26 today!”. These are especially good for colleagues, as you can leave the spoof paper on their desk!

Personalised Money Jar

Everyone could do with saving a little cash every now and then, but few do. What better incentive than a personalised money jar, with a relevant message to encourage saving up?

Food and Drink

Craft BeerAlways a winner, most people enjoy a special treat from time to time. Wine, beer or prosecco is normally a good call. Try a craft beer selection for something a little different. Boxes of chocolates and hampers are also great and you can even get personalised wrappers for chocolate bars.


Particularly good over the Christmas period, this is an ideal secret Santa gift. Most folks could do with a calendar, but few people ever buy one for themselves.

Novelty Wall Clock

There are some very affordable novelty wall clocks available that are sure to put a smile on even the sternest face. They can make a great addition to any room, creating a talking point that is also practical.

Personalised Mug

Another great idea for office workers, there are many different designs to choose from and personalise however you wish. They need never be without a mug at tea time ever again!
