Gift ideas for folk we don't like

Discussion in 'Personal' started by eatmoney, Dec 14, 2011.

  1. We're having a secret Santa at work at I've been lucky enough to have my head as my recipient. This wouldn't otherwise be a problem if she wasn't the personification of all things putrid and miserable. Any ideas?

    And no she won't know it's from me :) it's all anonymous
  2. I'd be very careful if I were you.
    The year I organised Secret Santa, people came to me and asked who'd bought their present.
    By a proccess of elimination and piecing together snippets of conversation in the staffroom, its possible to work it out.

    A copy of Machiavelli's 'The Prince' so she can compare notes?

    One of those really cheesy calendars with her name (preferably Mrs XX) on every page. Truly tasteless and if she does work it out then she's just think that you have bad taste!

    The (Santa) sack! It's my present to my former Head. Season's Greetings, Sir! May all your nightmares and salary-free problems be big ones! [​IMG]
  6. Dump in her handbag and sign it SMT.
  7. Someone once sent our old Head some humbugs. It was a genuinely thoughtful present because she knew that he liked boiled sweets but he took umbrage and thought that someone was suggesting he was full of humbug!
    The person who sent it was mortified - Oh the joys of secret santa!
