Secret Santa's can be a great way to exchange gifts in the workplace to spread holiday cheer, but you never want to be the person to give a bad gift. Here's a list of Secret Santa gifts you should stay away from.
Leave the yule log and ornaments at home. Although they tend be small and inexpensive, their use is limited and tend to looked at as not thoughtful and generic.
Perfume and cologne is a nice gift to someone close to you, but your co-worker may take offense to it. Plus, it’s hard to gauge what scent someone else might like to wear.
Everyone need a little grooming, but not from a secret Santa.
Scented lotions and soaps often play a major role in present exchanges, but they tend to be a waste to the receiver. Many people have allergies or skin sensitivities or are picky about scents, making gift impractical.
Socks make for a great stocking stuffer at home, but your recipient may think you're cheap and un-thoughtful.
Your co-worker may wear ties every day, but what if he doesn’t like the one you pick? It may create an awkward situation when you notice your gift hasn’t made an appearance.
All though this may be something everyone needs, its best to let people purchase these products themselves. Giving undies is way too personal to give as a secret Santa gift.
Secret Santa gifts can be a lot of fun--but not if you end up with a bad present. Here's what to avoid giving at this year's exchange.
