Christmas is coming. It is a frenzied time of year for most - from trying to get all your Christmas pressies bought, to stocking your fridge and prepping your house to have all the extended family members over.
Amongst the chaos, it is easy to forget that Secret Santa present for your coworker or family member. But never fear — we have some great ideas for every price range which are sure to impress. Read on to ensure you don't turn up to your Secret Santa gift exchange empty handed!
Inflatables are a fun gift as they are generally things people don't buy for themselves. There are heaps of cool ones for sale, even ones which serve as drink holders, so they can sink a cold one whilst cooling off in the pool over summer.
The sock version of 'the party shirt', bound to spice up any office attire. There are literally so many prints available to cater for any niche interest... for a more unique gift you can even buy personalised socks with an image of their pet's face on them. Just saying.
Portable bluetooth speaker
If they haven't got one already, a waterproof portable speaker is the ultimate gift. By getting your Secret Santa one of these they can crank the tunes anywhere... by the pool, while they shower... you name it. Let the good times roll.
Luxe coffee with a novelty mug
Every office has a resident coffee snob. Grab some fancy looking coffee beans from your local coffee shop and wrap them up with a nice mug. Hey, it may even stop your coworker using your mug and it will keep them caffeinated as well. Win win!
While we are on the topic of coffee, a cold-brew jug is also a wonderful gift for coffee lovers. You can pick up a good one from between $30-$50 and it will make delicious cold brew coffee all summer long.
To-go wine glass tumbler
Allow your gift recipient to enjoy their favourite vino at their Christmas picnics and beach side BBQ's with a to-go wine glass tumbler. They won't have to worry about spillages or broken glass and their wine will remain cold. For out of office use only... drink responsibly.
House plants are generally a universal hit, especially for those with a bit of a green thumb. An easy-care plant in a colourful pot is a super thoughtful gift and will be a nice addition for anyone's home or desk. (Psst — if you are concerned your gift recipient is a plant murderer, succulents or devil's ivy are almost impossible to kill).
Look, we had to mention it. Sometimes a person is simply tricky to buy for. Rather than going for a generic gift card, opt for something more unique. A movie gift card or restaurant voucher are always much appreciated, and will provide your giftee with an all-paid experience.
The hoppy version of the 'office coffee snob' is the 'distant relative beer enthusiast'. If you've been tasked with purchasing for that guy who only drinks craft beer — it’s simple. Buy them some. We have teamed up with Running With Thieves to create our delicious 'Topside Lager', which you can find in our gift hampers — along with our mouth-watering jerky. Our hampers are a great choice for foodies and jerky fans alike.
Do you know what also goes really well with craft beer? Our beef jerky and beef biltong products are made with 100% topside beef, and truly are the best in town. For jerky aficionados or newbies alike - our products are bound to be a hit. A great idea for Secret Santa gifting is to opt for a couple of our sampler packs, and combine a couple of different flavours.
When it comes to your gift recipient storing their beef jerky or beef biltong — an air tight container or mason jar works perfectly. You can even supplement your jerky gift with one of these options by placing it inside. Pop a ribbon on it, and bam.
Merry Christmas from Us to You
So now that your Christmas shopping is all done... (okay maybe not quite). Regardless, we do hope this list of gift ideas gives you some pointers.
We wish you a very happy Christmas break from all of us here at The Jerky Co. We hope you eat and drink to your heart's content (we recommend popping some jerky on a cheese board!) and spend valuable time with your friends and family.
