Secret Santa Gifts Under INR 500 For Every Colleague

Secret Santa is the best thing that Christmas has to offer (well, one of the best). The excitement of picking chits, struggling to find that perfect gift for your colleague and finally seeing the smile on their faces when they open the nicely wrapped gift. It simply spreads so much joy, happiness and positivity around. An ideal way to kickstart the festive season. 

We've curated a list of amazing gifting options that will suit every budget:

Plants are the safest bet. They’re thoughtful. They’re pretty flexible (can be kept at home or on your office desk). And they’re sure to spread positivity and happiness around. Now, you can opt for the conventional ones like Aloe Vera, Betel Leaf, Money Plant or Bamboo Palm. Or you can go a bit extra and gift some fancy exotic plants like Anthurium, Alocasia, Allamanda, etc.

    Sassy Car Stickers

    We all have that one friend or colleague who’s driving skills which makes us want to jump out of the car. Well, there’s something we’ve found for such drivers – sassy car stickers that will remind them to kind off chill out. Not just that, it will also alert others to follow rules and drive safe. For example, there are car stickers which reads ‘Not my dad’s gift, keep distance’, ‘Buckle up! God doesn’t save idiots,’, ‘Drive like Gandhi is watching,’, ‘Not your dad’s road either. #FollowRules,’, ‘Signals please, can’t read minds,’.
