Christmas Made Easy - Your Secret Santa Gift Guide

Secret Santa time is nearly upon us! If it fills you with a sense of dread, don’t worry, Copper & Grey has you covered! If you’re drawing a blank, here are some ideas to get you thinking! 

We have loads of Secret Santa gift options in our shops in Aberdeen, Banchory and St Andrews, and our friendly staff will be only too happy to help you find the perfect Secret Santa present!

 Festive Soaps

 Budget-friendly, pretty, practical and scented for the Season! We have a range of festive soaps that will hit the Secret Santa mark!

 All our festive soaps come beautifully packaged and are ready-to-give gifts; just pop them in a jolly gift bag and they’re ready to hand over to the lucky recipient. 

 Check out this beautiful set of 3 mini soaps from Toasted Crumpet, for example (£6.50) or take a look at our fun and budget-friendly soap slices from Bomb Cosmetics (from £3.95). Looking for a more manly scent?

These fun soaps are aimed at blokes and also come in a handy beer cosy! (£6)

 Scented candles have a magical way of transforming any space into a haven of relaxation and comfort. Our festive scented candles are the perfect way to evoke the scents of the season and we have a couple of options that fall within a Secret Santa budget.

 This lovely little Cypress & Fir tin candle smells exactly like a Christmas tree! (£8) and these pretty little votive candles from Toasted Crumpet (£10.50) have a wonderfully festive blend of orange, cinnamon, amber and vanilla. 

Candles don’t need to just be scented, we also have some lovely dinner candles that look stunning on a mantlepiece or bring a touch of glamour to a festive table. 

If budget allows, why not add in a fun jar of long matches (£8)? They're the ideal companion gift for a candle? 

Christmas Decorations

 A Christmas decoration makes an ideal Secret Santa gift! With prices starting from £3.99, the lucky recipient will be getting a lovely decoration they can hang from their tree for years to come. We have dozens of decorations to choose from in all 3 of our shops; from gonks to robins to gingerbread men…just choose the decoration you think your recipient will love!

Christmas Mug & Hot Chocolate

 Perfect for a cup of something cosy during the chilly weather, a Christmas mug is a Secret Santa winner! Check out these sweet mini mugs from Gisela Graham (£7.49). 

Still some Secret Santa budget left? Why not add in a hot chocolate stirrer (£2.50) or hot chocolate bomb (£2.99)?

Caramel Hot Chocolate Bomb


Ideal for the office, why not treat your Secret Santa to a set of funny sticky notes? Our favourite is the Formal Sticky Notes Packet (£9.95). For the office bookworm, the Hourglass Metal Bookmark (£10) is also a great shout. Buying for someone who likes the occasional sweary word? Our F***ing Brilliant pencil set (£11.99) has been a hit every year!

I hope this has given you some Secret Santa inspiration! We have loads more options in our shops in Aberdeen, Banchory and St Andrews. `Our staff are more than happy to help you find your perfect Secret Santa gift. And don’t forget, we’ll wrap it for you, too!
