Secret Santa Ideas!

Postby Matbow » Mon Dec 04, 2006 5:36 pm

Seeing as though you guys came up trumps with the whole team building help I thought I'd pick your brains again!

I've drawn the office loud mouth for our secret Santa thingy. He's the type of guy that tells the worst jokes, takes the p*ss out of everyone and farts/burps through-out the day without caring (Can ya guess who it is yet Yakumo!?). The perfect person to have to buy for!

So any ideas?! I'm wanting to go down the comedy route btw...

I've got one idea so far, and it's great but VERY risque and I'm not sure if I actually want to go into a shop that sells that sort of thing...

Yeah, I'm sure we're mature enough to handle it ;) It'll also give us an idea of what gifts are his type of thing, as I wasn't able to think of one for the decription you gave of him (I don't know anyone like that).

This may sound odd (especially to those outside of the UK) but i was in River Island yesterday doing some shopping and on the counter there was this mouth spray. Loads of different types, you got a spray that gives you a Scouse accent (which is the one i bought, and it works. Makes me sound like a real scoucer! There was also Geordie, Brum and Cockney i think. You could buy him one of those if he's into jokes and stuff, and if you can find it!

Huh!? Are you serious? Something you spray in your mouth to be able to speak in different accents!? I am SO getting that!! For myself, that is. I want to try out the Geordie accent :)

You lucky lad Matbow

I got my person a floating table football game. The football floats on air and you finger it towards a plastic goal.

Cost gbp 5 from Sainsburys.

they had lots of other similar junky items at the same sort of price!

How about a chocolate cat from Ann Summers!

No straight up mat. I got it in my house, "instant scouse accent". Does anyone else have the cloth shop 'River Island' where they live? They sell it on the check-out. It's nuts!

I'm gonna go into my local River Island and check it out :D

Edit: Just rang them first. They only have the Scouse and Irish one left, at the moment. I was hoping for Geordie :( Ah well, I can at least check one of these out to see if they really work! Which one should I get, Irish or Scouse?

What's the amount you're planning on spending? Go for a gift certificate if you're stuck...

I just tried the Geordie accent, one. I bought it but it didn't work :? That's quite a bit of a let-down, as it says in small writing that it's just a novelty item. I thought it was too good to be true :razz:

The good news, though, is that I bought a new hat while I was there. And I like it a lot.. AND although it said it was £10, I was only charged 5! :D
