Turning into something of a workplace essential, the office Secret Santa is becoming more and more popular but that doesn’t mean it’s any easier to work out what to buy.

Almost a third of people have taken part in a ‘secret Santa’ in recent years and with an average spend of £7, the most popular gifts are socks, novelty mugs and deodorant.
