When it comes to Christmas shopping, nothing is more stressful than finding the perfect secret Santa gift idea. First, there's the issue of the recipient. Unless you're miraculously assigned your favourite deskmate, it's likely you'll end up having to find a gift for a colleague you don't know that well. With little insight into interests and tastes to work from, you're left searching for something that universally suits all, that won't just get regifted next year. And then there's the issue of budget: With an ever-growing list of presents left to buy, it's vital that you don't spend too much on this gift.
To save you spending hours trawling the shops for inexpensive but equally impressive gift ideas for work colleagues, we've rooted around the best beauty stores to find the products nobody would be disappointed to open at the holiday party. And even better, they'll set you back no more than £10. Keep scrolling for the best beauty gift ideas that'll go down a storm in the office.
