Secret Santa, Kris Kringle or just the plain, old office gift pool. No matter what you call it, it’s probably time to start thinking about what you’re going to get your co-workers for Christmas. Here are our top picks for geeky gifts under $30 for your office Secret Santa.
If have to buy a present for the office’s resident rock star, there’s no better cheap gift than the Pick Punch. Basically it’s a hole punch that lets you stamp out guitar picks out of credit cards, gift cards or any other kind of hard plastic. Party on.
If your present needs to be for someone artistic, why not bring their work into the 21st century with the Wacom Bamboo stylus for tablets? Being arty has never looked so modern, and it’s from Wacom so you know it’s good.
Doodles, sketches, notes and forget-me-nots, notebooks are the business. There’s no better notebook than Moleskine, and there’s nothing more geeky than LEGO. What could be better than the two of them combined?
Keyboards are horrible places, why not give your deskmate something to fix that. This putty moulds into the awful places between your keys and lifts out the nine-month old sandwich bits out of that horrible place.
Who said cheap couldn’t be effective? The cassette case is a great way to spruce up an iPhone and a great out for cheap Secret Santa!
Big boys toys! The Nerf gun is an ageless toy, and the N-Strike Maverick is the most fun you can have with foam. These double packs are a bargain.
Don’t you just hate it when someone else’s cable hydra starts creeping onto your desk? Thankfully, IKEA have a whole bunch of cable management niceness you can get on the cheap.
There’s nothing worse than a watery scotch. If you know someone who loves their booze in the office, this is the gift for them, and it shows off how much you know about good alcohol, too.
