The Office Baker

Three brown recipe cards lying on a marble surface. Around them are slices of orange, and a spoonful of sugar.

As the office baker, I need you to know that if I got these you would be upgraded from “respected colleague” to “favourite person in the whole office” (Pos office, please take note). These absolutely beautiful recipe cards are perfect for jotting down important recipes passed on from family members and random Google searches, and fall very nicely into any Secret Santa budget.

The Office Joker

A man who is clearly trying not to laugh wearing inflatable antlers on his head. Someone has thrown a ring and it has landed on the antlers.

Hawkins Bazaar | £6.50

You know that person who has set up a little basketball hoop over the bin, tries unsuccessfully to get a scrap of paper in nine times, gets it in on the tenth then acts like they’re LeBron James? No? Is that just me? Well, regardless, this is a perfect gift for the joker in your office who likes playing daft games when they should definitely be working.

The Food Lover

A metal case containing 12 round metallic containers. They each have a colourful chilli powder inside them.

Marvling Bros Ltd @ Etsy | £20

Do you want to blow the face off your office foodie? Or do you just want to see if there’s truly anything they wouldn’t eat? This set of 12 chilli powders takes your palate around the world, mostly to Mexico, and mostly if the world was on fire. The chili powders on offer range from the notorious Carolina Reaper to the subtle and beautiful heat of chipotle, and everything in between. If anything, get it just to see their face when they taste the Carolina Reaper.
