Aga’s Top Picks

– for those pesky, Secret Santa Gifts

With Christmas fast approaching, we thought we’d ask the TLPS team to round up their favourite picks from the shop in our handy little Gift Guide!

Our studio and marketing assistant Aga

First up is our Studio & Marketing Assistant Aga, with her favourite choices for that pesky Secret Santa gift purchase – notoriously the hardest one to buy:

I always struggle when it comes to Secret Santa gifting! You’re usually stuck with a small budget, and you often don’t know too much detail about the person’s likes and dislikes. Not the easiest combo to work with!

With that in mind, I’ve opted for crowd-pleasers that fall under the £20 mark – winner!

Aga's Secret Santa Top Picks: Sass & Belle - Secret Gin mug

Sass & Belle – Gin Mug

Perfect for Gin and tea lovers everywhere (which, let’s face it, is most of England – myself included!), you can be sure you won’t go far wrong with gifting this amusing mug from Sass and Belle!

Spark Happiness

‘Share something you’ve been saving’; ‘Make some plans to look forward to’; ‘Spend some time around animals’; ‘Recall a happy memory and share it with someone who was there’.

The prompts inside this matchbox offer inspiring ideas for sharing and cultivating moments of joy, appreciating bright spots, and celebrating the everyday – all printed on matchstick-shaped wooden strips with blue tips. This makes a great stocking stuffer!

Aga's Secret Santa Top Picks: Happy Cactus keyring

Happy Cactus Keyring

With the trend for all things succulent apparently going nowhere soon, I don’t think you can go far wrong with one of these super-cute cactus keyrings! Guaranteed to put a smile on your recipient’s face (they’ve also been flying out of the shop since we’ve had them in so are clearly proving popular with all!).

Ban.do ‘Coffee is my BFF’ Travel Mug

If you’re buying for the office Secret Santa, then I don’t think you can go far wrong with a coffee travel mug for your colleague!

This premium Ban.do travel mug scores highly both on the design front – with it’s baby pink and gold colour combination – plus, the usability front.  I can personally vouch that our Creative Director Cara uses hers everyday, and it’s clever lid sealing mechanism means she never spills a drop en-route to the shop and studio!
