Whether you’re buying for the gadget geek or the designated office DJ, we have the very best Secret Santa ideas for your coworkers and colleagues.

Adult Colouring Books
Perfect for the artist in the office, colouring books do more than offer a touch of nostalgia, they also provide some much-needed creative freedom and an escape from adulting. In fact, adult colouring books are known for relieving stress and are great for self-care. So shake off the idea that they’re just for kids because let’s face it – who doesn’t love to have a good colour now and then?

Wireless Charging Station
There’s always that person who has to go out and get all the latest gadgets the minute they’re released. We won’t mention names, but I’m sure you know who I’m talking about. If you’re having your very own technological fault and find yourself unable to think of any ideas, why not pick up a multifunctional charging station? Perfect for charging all your gadgets at the same time meaning you’ll never be stuck having to make the decision of which device you want to prioritise again.

Portable Speaker
Got your very own walking jukebox at work? A portable speaker could be the perfect gift for any music lover. Whether they use it to keep motivated at work, listen to a podcast as they cook or just for party vibes at the weekend, it makes the perfect gift. You could even see if they would like to bring it to work. Think about it, goodbye poorly executed acapella covers and hello office sing-alongs. Sounds great, right?

Music Pillow
There is always that one person who, without fail, will complain about how tired they are or how they couldn’t get to sleep. Listening to music meditation apps or a podcast before bed can be a great way for helping to drift off to sleep, but have you ever tried sleeping with headphones in? It’s not the most comfortable, no matter how you lay.
So why not pick up a musical pillow instead? This pillow has a speaker positioned deep within the material, meaning you can only listen when your head is tightly pressed against the pillow. What’s even better is that it doesn’t disturb anyone else. So whether it’s Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Dylan or Harry Styles say goodbye to sleepless nights.

iMusic Pillow – £14.99
