Top 12 Football Secret Santa Gifts for Christmas 2020
So, you’ve drawn a football fan in this year’s office secret Santa? Let me be your personal shopper and find the perfect football secret Santa gift with the latest offerings from 2020.
We’re guessing you have a budget of somewhere between £5 and £20 to spend on your secret Santa gift, so all of our selections are between those prices. We’ve chosen a selection of nice gifts for the coworker you maybe don’t know that well, and some funny secret Santa gifts for you ones you don’t mind having a bit of banter with.
OK, let’s get cracking...
1. Personalised Socks
Which player really grinds your colleague’s gears? Why not drive them crazy with these socks printed with the face of a person they despise!
Time to get creative. What about getting Demba Ba printed on socks for a Liverpool fan? How would that City fan like a pair of Alex Ferguson socks? Mike Ashley socks for a Newcastle fan? The options are endless and the results will be hilarious. Probably never to be worn but worth the look on their face when they unwrap their ‘special gift’. Muahaha!
2. Custom Print Of Any Football Stadium
A bit more of a sensible one here for Trevor from HR, who once mentioned he follows Wolves and that has been your only conversation over the kettle ever since. If you’re looking for an uncontroversial football secret Santa gift, this is a decent place to start.
3. Retro Top Trumps Card Game
Don’t you just love it when they try to be frugal and set the secret Santa limit to an impossible £5?! Don’t worry, we’ve got you. This pack of retro Top Trumps cards comes in below that. It features all the old favourites from the ‘90s like Gary Lineker, Ian Wright, Peter Beardsley and Ally McCoist. An easy gift with a bit of retro flair.
4. Subbuteo Penalty Shootout
Every football fan loves Subbuteo. Fact. Add a bit of fun to the final afternoon in the office before Christmas or even their little tea breaks at home. What could go wrong when you decide to spice things up with an inter-department competition?
5. Football Patent Art Prints
A great one for that football hipster who is too cool for the usual secret Santa presents. A few cheap Ikea frames and these would look the business. On second thoughts, they’re possibly too nice for secret Santa and might make a better Christmas gift for a football fan.
6. The Funniest Football Quotes Book by James Conrad
Some of the oddest things are said in and around the beautiful game, luckily, James Conrad has documented them in a humorous and simple read. The perfect desk, coffee table or toilet companion for any football fan looking to reminisce about the game’s funniest moments.
7. Talking Balls Personalised Football Mug
This is a good one for that work colleague who can take a bit of a joke. You might need to surreptitiously find out their year of birth but it’s a pretty easy gift that should go down well with most football fans. Plus, there are never enough mugs in any office so you’re basically doing a public service by buying this one.
8. Never Stop Dreaming: My Euro ‘96 Story by Stuart Pearce
The blood, sweat and tears of one of England’s greatest left backs are poured into this book. What a tournament, what a summer and what a story it so nearly was for that great England side. Stuart Pearce tells his side of the story in this best seller.
9. The Football Shirts Book by Neal Heard
Another great secret Santa gift for that football hipster in your office. Do they turn up on casual days wearing a Mexican third division football shirt that they’re delighted to share their extensive knowledge of? If so, they’ll definitely enjoy this book and in particular, telling you all about it afterwards.
10. Personalised Bucket Of Chocolate Footballs
It’s chocolate, it’s football, what is there not to like? Personalise the message, whether it’s funny or heartfelt. You could even strongly encourage that your colleague keeps these in the office so everyone can dig in!
11. France ‘98 World Cup Shirts A3 Poster
Another great one for that dreaded £5 limit! France ‘98 wasn’t England’s finest tournament but the kits are something to behold. Enjoy reminiscing with your colleague about the days when designs were cool and template shirts weren’t a thing.
12. Football Soap On A Rope
OK, I’ll admit it, I’m running out of secret Santa gift ideas but if you’re really desperate, how about a soap on a rope?! Literally the most generic football stocking filler possible for when you’ve had to look up the person you’ve drawn because you know so little about them.
