Here are a few low-cost suggestions that are sure to go down a treat…

PUB QUIZ BOOK

£9.99 •
www.thepresentfinder.co.uk
Everyone loves a quiz at Christmas, and The Biggest British Pub Quiz Book is the perfect way to brush up on your general knowledge. This paperback has more than 10,000 questions, which range from super easy to Mastermind-level hard.

PERSONALISED CHOCOLATE BAR

£6.50 •

Choose from nine different flavours including coloured candy, salted caramel and luxury fruit and nut. This chocolate, which is handmade in the UK by The Chocolate Library, can be personalised with your colleague’s name and, if you’re feeling especially lazy, can be gift wrapped.

LIPSTICK HIGHLIGHTERS

£7 •
www.paperchase.co.uk
Know a beauty-loving stationery fiend? These lippy highlighters come in four different colours (pink, purple, orange and green) and are an amusing accessory for any desk.

HARLEQUIN SAVANNAH HAND CREAM SET

£9 •
www.johnlewis.com
This beautiful set is the ideal gift for anyone who suffers from sore, dry hands during the winter months. Scented with lemon, bergamot, jasmine and geranium, the tubes are 30ml and are perfect for popping in a bag.

GIANT BEER PONG

£9.99 •
www.totally-funky.co.uk
An enormous version of the popular drinking game, this giant beer pong comes with 12 litre-sized cups and two large ping pong balls. If you’ve got a colleague with a competitive streak, the “world’s favourite drinking game” could prove highly entertaining.

CRAFT BEER

£9 •
www.green-and-pleasant.com
This three-beer gift pack is packaged beautifully and is far nicer than anything that can be bought from a local supermarket for the same price. Chose a mix of beer, lager or cider, or simply opt for three of the same.

GIN AND TONIC BATHING GEL

£9.99 •
www.prezzybox.com
This is a great gift for a gin enthusiast, but cheaper than buying an actual bottle of booze. Also comes in soap form (£3.99) as well as other alcoholic flavours, including Prosecco and vodka and coke.

EAR ME OUT LEATHER EARPHONE HOLDER

£8 •
www.notonthehighstreet.com
Everyone knows the frustration of getting their headphones tangled up. But with this vintage-style holder there’s no need to suffer that irritation again. Choose from tan leather with a rose-gold fastening or brown leather with a brass fastening.

COFFEE CREW CERAMIC CUP

£9.99 •
www.iwantoneofthose.com
Every day up to seven million coffee cups are thrown away in the UK, so this quirky, reusable mug is not only a great present for a coffee addict, but will reduce the individual’s landfill contribution. The mug, which comes in cat and dog designs, has a removable silicone lid with animal ears, as well as double-walled insulation.

COLOUR ME GOOD COLOURING BOOKS

£8 – £9.99 •
www.shop.ilovemel.me
The craze for adult colouring-in books is on the rise (colouring is good for mindfulness and creativity), and these particular books have a humorous edge. Our personal favourite is Colour Me Good Swoon, featuring page after page of celebrity heartthrobs to colour in.
