The solution to all your Secret Santa problems

We’re not the only ones already inundated with Secret Santa groups, right?

Between work, school friends, college friends, life friends and family, it’s almost too easy to clock up several gift-giving circles during the festive season. And that’s not even considering the big presents required for BFFs and BFs!

Thankfully, in most cases, budgets are kept low for Secret Santa, so we’ve dug up some great wallet-friendly solutions from Heatons.

Buying clothes for friends is always a little dodgy, but if you have a fashion-loving acquaintance, accessories are a good way to go. These festive Bow Gloves (€10) would be perfect!

If you don’t know the person you’ve been assigned that well, something simple and elegant for the home, like this Berry Red Chenille Throw (€10.98), is a great solution.

Another no-fail option when it comes to Christmas gift giving is a fun festive item like these Novelty Elf Slippers (€8), this Christmas Penguin Jumper (€15) or these beautiful Satin Pyjamas (€10), which are perfect for Christmas morning.

For those who love their beauty products, Heatons also has some great options in this department. Grab something festive like the Cracker Bath Set (€6) or something cute like this Sugar&Spice Double Sided Nail Varnish (€6).

Perfume can also make a nice gift and Intimately Beckham Woman is only €13 in Heatons.

Last but not least, if your Secret Santa assignee is like most Irish girls and loves her fake tan, you can’t go wrong with a few cans of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (€6).

The best part about these items is that you can buy them online from the comfort of your couch (or bed), which means no trudging through large crowds of angry shoppers. Heatons’ new site allows you to check out the latest offers from desktop, tablet or mobile this festive season. Delivery from the new online store has also been improved and customers who order before 2pm each day can expect their purchase next day. You can also ‘click and collect’ from any of Heatons’ 54 stores around the country for free.
