    Secret Santa

    Anyone doing one at Work.

    Rules; Spend no more than £5

    I have just organised this at work, presents being exchanged on the 12th. Quite hard when you dont really know the person you are buying for.

    Anyone else doing this??

    yeah i've got to get one for one of the mum's at my youngest's school when we go out for xmas lunch.... one of the mum's decided to up the budget to £10 :-( still don't know what to get....

    I get stuff on play.com, jokey stuff for a fiver.


    thing is the lady i've got to buy for is middle aged & quite sensible so don't think she'd be happy with jokey stuff :-(

    How about a mug from BHS... they do ones with chocolate and marshmallows in them... usually look really nice, or a chocolate fondue set??

    We are doing this at our Work.. for about a tenner... I'm all excited on this! Any suggestions on a gift for her (to the one I need to gift).. completely new to this.. any help would be appreciated!

    budgets a tenner, but i have no idea wat shes into.

    You could make a fruit basket. Get a small wicker basket from a charity or craft shop. Tissue paper on bottom. Get some pieces of fruit wrap a couple in tissue paper. Wrap the whole thing with clear wrap from flower shop usually 50p a roll. Should come within your budget and has the personal touch.
