Whether it's the office secret Santa or presents for the family, it's easy for Christmas gifting to spiral out of control. The stumpy tree poking out from a mound of patterned paper; unwrapping ceremonies that last longer than your average turkey roasting time; four copies of Nigel Slater's Eat (true story, 2013).
This year, sack off tradition and opt for a grown-up stocking – thoughtfully chosen mini gifts heaped at the foot of the bed, to be opened before breakfast (Bucks Fizz optional). Would you buy yourself a pair of luxe black scissors? Or that expensive hand cream you've been pilfering from your colleague whenever their back's turned? Probably not, and we'd hazard a guess that your S.O. wouldn't, either. Alternatively, these gifts would be ideal for a secret Santa when you want something a little more thoughtful than a novelty mug.
