The rules of Secret Santa are usually quite simple. An even number of friends or colleagues gather together, trade names and anonymously choose presents for each other. Some groups like to agree on a set budget while others like to pen a wishlist to give their secret gift-giver a few options to choose between. On the gift exchange day, participants try to guess which person in the group gifted which present.

Some gift-givers know just what to do to impress their Secret Santa while others scratch their heads and wonder how they’re going to find the perfect gift. Secret Santa then becomes a game of strategy as the clueless try to converse with their recipient by asking for hints as subtly as possible. The number one rule? Don’t give yourself away.

But for some of us, we like to take this festive game as a fun opportunity to cause a little mischief, because what’s life without a little fun? If you want to stir the pot at this year’s work Christmas party, then look no further because we’ve cherry-picked some very funny Secret Santa gift ideas to surprise your unsuspecting victim colleague with.
