The art of Secret Santa
Love it or hate it, Secret Santa is officially a thing. In offices across the country, people will be pulling names out of hats as we speak, and panicking about what the fudge to buy Barry in IT. But panic no more friends! Our gift grotto is THE place to find the perfect present. With all gifts under £10 and many under £5, we’ve got unique treats for all budgets.
But where the heck did Secret Santa begin?
There are lots of different stories about where Secret Santa started. Some people think it comes from the old Scandinavian tradition of julklapp (Christmas tapping in Swedish), where neighbours would leave a gift on each other’s doorsteps, knock and then run away (kind of like a nice festive version of Knock Down Ginger). Others think it came from an American philanthropist called Larry Dean Stewart, who spent 20 years anonymously donating $100 bills to people at random and gave out $25,000 in $100 bills after 9/11 – what a guy!

Twerk Pong is sure to liven up the office party. Shake it like a North Polaroid picture, until the balls pop out of your twerk box.
