Oh the joys of a Secret Santa gift exchange. We've all had to do one at some point in our lives – whether we wanted to or not. It can be such a pain trying to find an appropriate gift within the set budget, especially if you've never met/hardly conversed with your assigned person before. What does Sarah who sits near the water cooler even like? How can you keep your gift cheap and cheerful without looking like the office Grinch?

Unfortunately for all of us, there's quite a few ways you can get Secret Santa embarrassingly wrong. What started off as good-intentioned fun can pretty quickly descend into an office-wide argument. Luckily for you, we've put together a list of all of the Secret Santa gifts you should never – under any circumstances – give. Heed our advice if you want to survive the holidays with your dignity intact.
