No more Secret Santa panic! Poundland unveils a range of pre-wrapped presents for £1 – so the contents will be a surprise for you AND your colleague

  • Budget chain are hoping to take the stress out of choosing Secret Santa present

Poundland has unveiled pre-wrapped gifts that are the perfect present if you’ve been roped into a Secret Santa at the office.

The budget chain is hoping to take the stress out of the annual office tradition by offering up £1 mystery gifts.

Inside each of the boxes is something from its Christmas range, including stress balls, selfie clips, back scratchers and a chubby electro Rudolf toy – but there’s no way to tell which one is inside. 

At the moment the helpful gifts are only available at the branch in Stratford, east London, but the launch may be extended across stores in the Midlands.  

Poundland’s senior buyer Richard Brewin told Metro: ‘Turns out the nation are big banter fans so we’re removing the pressure of choosing a Secret Santa gift and replacing it with LOLs.

‘Let’s face it, no one ever knows what to get the colleague you never talk to (sorry Debbie) so why spend the time? 

‘Leave the decision to us – whether they adore it or are totally offended, we’re looking forward to giving everyone a laugh or making them choke on their cocktail sausage at this year’s office party – you’re welcome.’

Poundland have also launched a range of ‘borderline offensive’ Christmas necessities including cards and wrapping paper that say ‘when I think about you, I touch my elf’.

Last year the British discount giant faced controversy after launching a marketing campaign featuring a series of sexually-suggestive posts about a ‘naughty’ Christmas elf.

The chain tweeted a number of pictures, including one of the elf playing poker with several scantily-clad women, and another showing the stuffed toy drawing a suspiciously-shaped cactus with the caption ‘that’s one prickly Christmas tree’.

Poundland faced a backlash on social media by users who felt the campaign was overly sexualised and crass.

Others loved the campaign, which cost the retailer just £25.53 to produce.
