    TOP KRIS KRINGLE IDEAS AND SECRET SANTA GIFTS!

    No one wants an ugly photo frame, socks, or boring pen this Kris Kringle! Make your colleague smile this year with a funny gift from us...all for under $25! So you can get something that fits the price range, but is also cool! Use our 'Gift Finder' to generate kris kringle ideas so that the choice is easy. 

    A Kris Kringle gift exchange is a great way to get colleagues together and to add the Christmas spirit to your workplace. However, if you draw a name for someone who you don't know much about, then it can be difficult to decide what gift to buy. That's why at Yellow Octopus we have selected a range of Kris Kringle gift ideas which are fun and unique, yet cost under $25, keeping you within the budget. We have Secret Santa ideas for men and secret santa gifts for women, with both general and special interest gifts available. And if you can’t make the tough decision, why not take the easy option (there’s no shame in it!!) and grab a gift card so they can choose something they really want?

    If you've drawn a name from the Kris Kringle generator and don't know the person, then it's worth doing some snooping. If you can find out their rough age and a couple of interests, then you'll be able to buy something that matches what they enjoy. Yellow Octopus breaks all our gifts into categories so you can easily select something based on personality. For example, if they're a wine drinker, you could buy them something like the hilarious wine glass bottle or travel enthusiasts will love a LEGO luggage bag tag. Showing you’ve done some research goes a long way in a workplace secret Santa.

    If you need to buy a present and are flying blind, then we have a selection of KK ideas that suit all sorts of recipients. A fun, retro mug or some cosy slippers are always appreciated, and if it's a lucky dip then they suit anyone who picks them out. It can be difficult to find good Kris Kringle presents that suit all ages and tastes, which is why one of Yellow Octopus's unique and quirky gifts makes life easier.

    Many workplaces now have a gift exchange of some sort, whether it's a Secret Santa, or a lucky dip, and if you need Kris Kringle ideas then we can save your colleagues from getting the usual mundane, forgettable gifts with our quirky and exciting range. Presents for colleagues aren’t as important as presents for your friends and family, so they are easy to forget. But no need to worry about getting something in time, because we provide quick delivery all over Australia. If you’re in the express post network, you can enjoy next day delivery. If you’re in Melbourne, how does same day delivery (often within 3 hours!) sound? And if you opt for standard post, it’s a low $7.99 flat rate, no matter how much you order so you can order all your Christmas Gifts in one foul swoop.

    The sectret santa gift exchanges have even become popular in the family home. It's so hard to buy heaps of presents for the extended family that you barely even know 

    Kris Kringle and Secret Santa Gift Exchange: The History of the Tradition

    Many people do not know that Kris Kringle is actually another name for Santa. This elusive, bearded man has many non de plumes such as 'Father Christmas' and 'Santa Christmas'. The name Kris Kringle is not used much anymore to refer to Santa and has become synonymous with the gift exchange programs used by workplaces around the globe.  Santa who was actually popularised by Coca-Cola, was actually a Saint in traditional folklore - Saint Nicholas. But perhaps, Santa's most notable appearance under the KK name came in the 1947 film 'Miracle on 34th St' where Kris Kringle was used as the name of the Santa Claus character. The classic film directed by George Seaton was remade in 1994 with Richard Attenborough playing the Kris Kringle chraracter. 

    Kris Kringle exchanges have taken workplace gift giving into the 21st century and take away the awkward moment where some people receive gifts and others don't. It's also heaps of fun getting someone to buy something for who's completely random. Kris Kringle is the name used in Australian and Canadian tradition based on the Western Tradition of the Secret Santa. This gift exchange, originally deriving from Christian tradition has many different names all over the world but derives etymology from the term Christkindl. For example, in Austria it is referred to as a Kris Kindel which refers to the 'gift bringer' and in the Phillippines as a Monito-Monita which refers to the 'three kings', whilst in Southern America it is referred to as the Pollyanna. All of these terms refer to the Christmas 'gift bringer'. Though it doesn't matter what you call it, the premise is the same: an exchange of gifts over the festive Christmas Period. 

    The thing with Kris Kringle gifts is they are meant to be cheap and CHEERFUL. That means that having a good sense of humour is paramount when looking at Kris Kringle gift ideas. There is no point getting someone in the office something boring, they'll just think you're a complete tool. Get something that is going to take them by surprise, something that is going to make them laugh. Get them something funny! A funny gift is always better than a boring gift. I'm going to get Michael a bland present SAID NOONE EVER!! We've got thousands of funny gift ideas all for under $25 bucks, which means whoever you draw in the Kris Kringle, you'll be able to get them rolling on the floor with a serious case of LOLS!

    The concept of a Kris Kringle is a lot different to buying gifts for your loved ones. The focus is on getting something that is cost effective and fits in to the prescribed guidelines, but at the end of the day you still want to make an impact with that person even if you don't know them well. Rather than hunting around in countless shops for something you don't even know you're looking for, it's a lot easier to leave it up to the professionals - us! Our Kris Kringle page is laid out so that it is easy to find whatever you need, for whatever personality, in the quickest amount of time possible. That's the Christmas spirit!
