Well, it seems the season of office parties (if it hasnt’ been cancelled by the credit crunch) and the ever-dreaded office gift exchange. I have to say though, that office Christmas parties here are pretty wild..the stories I have heard come out of a few of them are shocking! The first office party I attended here was great, there were actual drinking games, it was like being back in University….It was a far cry from the office party that I went to once in Canada that ended at 10 and had a Shaina Twain impersonator (that could have been why it ended early).
Anyhoo the thing that I find most stressful is the present purchase…I always end up getting the quiet ones I know nothing about and end up having to find a £5 gift.
I was racking my brain and haven’t come up with anything yet but figured I would regale you with some of my favourite secret Santa gifts.
Inflatable boxing gloves – nothing better than grown adults beating each other up with giant gloves
A Swear Box (this may or may not be a shot of my desk as I may or may not have received it as a gift last year)
And my favourite…
Tattoo Sleeves! They were a big hit at the marginally swanky bar we went to for my birthday last year (and by big hit I mean the bouncers kept a pretty close eye on our group).
