So we all know when your work/ university Secret Santa starts rearing its excitable yet kind of ugly head we panic. We all hope we don’t get that one guy or girl that we never talk to…. Here is how you can solve that issue- here is a guide for almost every present you could think of.

Something under £10: How about this super cool heat- changing lightsaber mug as seen on http://www.amazon.com and Disney stores?
Something more extravagant: This Batman figure is a collectible from http://www.zavvi.com and is priced at just under £100. You can get some far more pricey ones. But this one has a slightly quirky edge.
For the girly girl
