Tight budget and stuck with what to get your Secret Santa?

Choice assorted chocolates 

An Mzansi classic that is most popular during the festive season. Chocolate is a universal delight that will have your Secret Santa recipient smiling with each delectable bite.

A funky pair of socks

Oil or eggs

Cooking oil and eggs have become hot commodities. No one can ever have enough of these pricey home goods. It's a practical, sensible gift that you can guarantee almost anyone would use. 

Personalised mugs 

A personalised mug is the gift that keeps on giving with every sip. Grab a plain mug and unleash your creativity and thoughtfulness. Add a touch of humour, an inside joke, or even their name for a daily dose of joy with their favourite beverages.

Five litres of petrol plus a chocolate

A showstopper gift that shows you went the extra mile. We don't mean to gas you up, but this gift is genius and bound to please any vehicle owner.
