As the office Christmas party season kicks off this week, brand new iOS app Secret Santa Tombola App has today released the ‘top ten under a tenner’ best-selling Christmas gifts this year* to help the UK’s Secret Santas nationwide find the perfect gifts to embarrass or entertain their colleagues with.
So if you are stuck for ideas then some of these top tens might help you out. From rude balloons to fart machines, the top sellers so far in 2013 are:
Rude Balloons, 24 Adult Magic Party Modelling Balloons, 6 Funny Designs, £5.95
Mini Fart Fanfare Sound Effects, £4.95
Farmers Market – Grow Your Own Chillies, £4.50

“The trend for Secret Santa presents seems to be getting ruder and ruder,” says Tim Wright, SecretSanta.me’s CEO. “I doubt many people’s mums gave their colleagues £4.50 designer beavers, or a pack of 24 rude balloons a generation ago. But they are really selling well this year.
“Having said that, some people get really nervous choosing secret Santa presents. That’s why we teamed up with Clock to build our app - if you don’t have time to shop, or simply don’t know what to buy, SecretSanta.me will always suggest a funny, cheeky or cute present within your price range.”
The Secret Santa Tombola App takes less than three minutes, and immediately takes the stress out of Secret Santa shopping. Simply select the gender of the gift receiver, pick the type of gift – cheeky, fun or cute and your budget. Then spin the tombola to see the recommended gift. Users can then choose to spin again for another option, or click to instantly buy the gift online. With hundreds of the top-selling gifts to choose from, workers can tick off finding the perfect secret Santa gift from their to-do list.
