Default Secret Santa

What are some small little gifts good for a secret santa? Lucky me, the person that I got did not have any ideas put down on his slip. He is about 35 years old. But I have not idea what his interests are and I really can not ask him.

Secret Santa is not only the legend of rich people secretly giving away money or paying bills. On this side o' the pond, it's also another name for a Yankee Swap gift exchange. Basically, everyone puts their name in a hat. Each person draws a name, but keeps it a secret. You then buy that person a gift, and leave it on their desk.

You can try asking his coworkers, or just looking in his cube when he is not around. If nothing still comes to mind, money is king. But not cash, get him a generic Visa gift card. He can use it anywhere, and get what he wants. It's rather impersonal, but it fits the bill in this case.

Oh that! Yeah we have that over here, not sure what they call it, normally we have no idea who we're buying for, we just get a gift to the value of whatever is suggested, place it back in the "hat"/box and then it gets handed out.

We call it 'Secret Santa' in the UK. Come on Babs,try to keep up , it's like you're living out in The Orkneys or something. Oh, hang on...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that no straight man wants anything to do with Secret Santa.

If you must participate, get him something huge and pointless, such as a broken concrete mixer.
