God I need a proof reader for Christmas
Ours was £5 - I got a mug.
filled up with flumps and Haribo and things.
Pretty chuffed, tbh.
the 'what should I buy for 5 and 8 year olds' thread and offer your services!
Have already thrown them away
But I got half a bottle of Champagne
Some Fortnums chocolates
A L'Occitane thingy
A White Company majig
I got a guy a £6.50 bottle of Buckfast and put it in a 99p gift bag. Can't wait to see what I get. (!)
Got two more this week - I found some 2 for 1 Transformers to use for my presents. Everyone loves Transformers, right?
Got Inception on DVD; excellent present, (sorry mushroom log).
i didn't get anything! typical of the organisation in this place. i spent well over the £6 budget for mine as well. i am a little bit furious. glad i'm moving to a new department next year, these clowns have ruined Christmas.
tenner budget, I got some FCUK spray and shower gel (LAD) and some hilarious c*** slipped in a pack of Kalms.
Trouble is, my first reaction was "who got me this s***, I'll rip their f***ing head off- OH... perhaps they have a point..."
Inception would have been much preferred.
I can live with that.
I bought a small panettone and a mini bottle of cava. Went a little bit over the £5 budget, but I didn't mind. The woman I gave it to seemed really pleased, and insisted on giving me a hug.
Then I opened my present from someone else. It was this: http://is.gd/jebRs
So yeah, Secret Santa can fuck off.
There should have been MORE than enough for the fake beard and teeth.
please say you're wearing them.
She got me a orange scen diffuser.
I want my money back.
who get as office secret santa to try and pull?
worked a charm one year for me
A copy of The Cable Guy on DVD because the Polish title is TELEMANIAK
A copy of a Polish DVD starring a cat and a dog because the screenshots made it look like 'Worker and Parasite'
A drawing in a frame I did whilst pissed
A 6000 word fictional autobiography of the origins of a bizarre English Language teacher whose method we all use.
two ties, one of which is now my favourite tie
A box of Polish wafers
A packet of amazing smelling herbal tea which I can't use at the moment because I don't have a tea strainer.
All in all, my first experience of Secret Santa was awesome.
Gave: Transformer (a Decepticon, forget which one).
Recieved: Crappy electronic block game thing that's been given in the last three years. At least I don't have to buy secret santa for my mates next year.
Part III this evening....
Someone obvs got in contact with my Mum, if not then holy sheeeeeeiiittt. Luckily snuck to the back and pretended to have trouble opening and everyone got bored and moved on with proceedings.
Highlight of the day was hearing a story about our boss. He was in a drink and drug related car crash about 5 years back and broke his foot amongst other things. So having kept hold of his crutches and protective boot he is currently wearing them around Disneyland Florida trying to skip the lines. How fucking tight/sad/embarrassing.
I'd set up a city tour of the capital of Yemen, allowing visitors to discover the city's hidden gems away from the obvious tourist attractions...
...I'd call it Secret Sana'a.
(PS In mine, I got two different types of LIP GLOSS. Fucking worst secret Santa ever.)
