5 foolproof gift ideas for Secret Santa

MANILA, Philippines – Secret Santa is a staple for most offices and barkadas. It’s almost become second nature to some of us—we’re wired to churn out wishlists every year, and we’ve learned to master making the most out of our budgets.

However, not all Secret Santas are made equal. Things get much more stressful when your Santa baby doesn’t have a wishlist, or when you’re assigned to someone you don’t know too well. Any Secret Santa enthusiast’s biggest nightmare is not knowing what to give.
