Secret Santa / White Elephant Gift Ideas

Holiday time is around the office, and there is a 92% chance that you will be asked if you want to join the voluntary but obligated office gift pool. There are two main formats for such gatherings - the famous white elephant giving process and secret santa. While this might seem like a minor transactional event, it reflects on who you are and makes a statement that is remembered for the entire next year (no pressure). Luckily for you, Tile is here to break it down for you.

Rule 1: Stay within the gift limit.

If your office says that there is a $20 dollar rule, don't be that person who clearly breaks the bank.

Rule 2: Know your audience & play towards the safe side.

While there is an understanding that most of these gifts will be novelties or somewhat forgettable. Unless you are super funny, consider a safe unisex gift that people will use. It's very easy to go all out and have a total flop or end up offending someone. However, certain things like gift cards or very useful small gifts can be enjoyed by all. Whatever you do, do NOT give a scented candle (unless it is Bacon flavored).

Luckily there is a beloved & creative gift for your Secret Santa challenge!
