5 Budget Secret Santa Ideas For Everyone In The Office Or Even Friends

Few things in life fill one with as much dread as buying a Secret Santa gift. You may pick your boss's name or worse still, the new intern; then, as usual, you forget all about it and spend all of Christmas Day trying to sneakily Dunzo something to the reception. Well, we're here to spare you the trouble of having to go through all that. Here's a list of budget-friendly gifts that will work for anyone, whether it's your work husband or the company CEO.

Aihikah

The office could certainly do with some more desk plants. And Aihikah's hand-painted planters that have Kawaii anime characters on them are great to lift everyone's spirits. Prices for these start from as low as INR 200, and you'll get them delivered straight to your doorstep!

The Wishing Chair

Kitchenware such as half-coloured bowls, stationery for as low as INR 125..No, really. They have cow paperweights, notebooks with vintage floral patterns, pouches with tassel fittings and so on. You might even forget you're there to shop for someone else and end up hoarding some things you didn't know you needed!

Asiatic Arts & Crafts

If you happen to find yourself in Comm Street for some reason, drop by at Asiatic Arts & Crafts. There's something new each time we go there. Get magnifying glasses for that colleague obsessed with Sherlock Holmes or find an old-school camera for the wannabe photographer at work. Either way, it's a treasure trove of old-school, antique-style gifts.

Levitate

Funky leather bags, handloom scarves, Boho chunky jewellery and Kerala Mughal wall art - these are just some of the offerings at Levitate. We love that it's located right inside Bob's Bar too, so you can drink and shop (that's the best way to shop for gifts and you know it). That's how we ended up buying a pretty yellow lamp for INR 500, but that's a story for another day.
