Secret Santa on a BUDGET!

By bzbeth 01 Dec 2018

It's that time of year when everyone's skint, you spent your last £5 on jägers and you've just been roped into secret Santa with your flatmates...

BUT don't worry because we've got the best student-friendly secret Santa gifts! Here goes:

1. The must-haves

You can't go wrong with some essential uni supplies - a notebook/diary, a hip flask, recipe book and a fluffy dressing gown. All of these will improve their life at uni in one way or another. Yes, some are more practical than others but who cares? 

2. Fancy a game?

If you've got someone who always up for a good laugh or maybe needs bringing out of their shell a bit, a good game is just what they need. A few choices are Cards Against HumanityArticulate and Beer Pong. Side note: you and your flatmate will use the game throughout the year so it's more of a personal investment.

3. It's the thought that counts...

You can't beat a personalised gift - especially for someone who is very clear on what is theirs and what is yours. It could be a personalised travel mug for the coffee lover, a personalised sports bottle for the fitness fanatic or a keyring for the flatmate that's always locking themselves out!

4. Squeaky clean

If you've got a communal bathroom in your flat, you'll know that a bathroom hogger is the WORST when you're in a rush for your 9am. Seen as you know how much they love showers, you could get them their favourite products or even a cheap Bluetooth shower speaker. Everyone needs a travel wash bag when they go and visit back home too!

5. BBFL

Picked your best mate for secret Santa? Buzzing! A photo frame (with your favourite photo of you both) is a really inexpensive gift. A scrapbook is a great idea too because all you need to do is print off a collection of photos and include all your favourite funny memories. With a scrapbook, you can keep adding to it together too.

As you can see, secret Santa doesn't have to cost a fortune. Remember to use your student discount OR stick to websites like Amazon

If you have any money left over, add a £1 scratch card because you never know, they could be taking you to the Bahamas in summer!
