26 unusual Secret Santa gift ideas for Christmas (2022)

Last updated on Monday 21 August 2023

On the hunt for unique Secret Santa gift ideas this Christmas? Then you've come to the right place! 

It's nearly that time of year again. December is just around the corner, our favourite jumpers are coming out of the wardrobes, Christmas lights are being hung up around towns and office parties are getting booked in.

And with all the festive feels in the air, we've been having a think about how to do something a little different for Secret Santa gift ideas this Christmas.  

Giving an experience gift for a Secret Santa is a great alternative to your usual items. Forget about scented candles, wine hampers or joke gifts! When you gift someone an experience instead of an item, you are giving the gift of lovely memories. So you can be sure your present won't end up in the pass-it-on cupboard. 

And what's more, gifting an experience is waste-free, eco-friendly and supports local businesses! What could be better? 

Does your Secret Santa love cooking? Then send them off on a wild mushroom foraging day! How about your friend who's a music nut? Gift them a music history tour of Bristol and they'll be full of new and fascinating facts to crack out at the next pub quiz. 

So whether your Secret Santa is your bestie, your mum or your 'water-cooler chat' colleague, we've got you covered. 

Here's a closer look at Secret Santa gift ideas for under £30, under £20 and under £10 this Christmas 2022:
