Are you struggling to find the perfect office Secret Santa gift?

The gifts we’ve listed below are relatively cheap, simple – and offer those all-important well-being benefits!


Water bottle

Hydration is key when it comes to staying healthy. A water bottle is a good reminder to drink more water – and a great sustainable gift! For an extra treat, why not grab an infusion bottle? These water bottles have a hollow central cylinder, which your Secret Santa can fill with fruit, vegetables or herbs (e.g. fresh mint) to add flavour to their drink.


Desk plant

Desk plants can brighten up the workspace by bringing the outdoors in, while also helping to cleanse the air and boost oxygen levels. Plus, research has found desk plants can help to improve mood, concentration and creativity!



A journal can be a useful tool for note-taking and keeping track of appointments, but it can also be great for practising mindfulness! Gifting a journal allows your Secret Santa to write out gratitudes or affirmations alongside their to-do list, making a journal a simple but welcome gift for starting off the new year.


Well-being subscription

A subscription to an app such as Headspace or Calm can help your Secret Santa to practise mindfulness and de-stress after a busy workday, as well as supporting mental and physical well-being.


Self care books

Books which guide, motivate and encourage self care are a great ‘pick me up’ for a colleague to keep in their home office or at their desk. We’d recommend Suzy Readings’ Self Care for Tough Times, Liggy Webb’s BiteSized Book series and Lara Doherty’s The Mighty Book of Motivation Magic.



The fuel of many offices, tea is a simple yet thoughtful gift. Herbal teas in particular have plenty of healthy benefits, and can encourage you to drink more during the colder months. Tea also has less caffeine than coffee, and there are lots of different blends – meaning you can create a personalised selection that can energise, revitalise or relax.


We hope we’ve given you some food for thought. Remember – the best gifts are the ones that show you care!
