20 days of Walrus! Day one: Secret Santa December 03 2014

Well, the Christmas music is playing - the holidays have arrived! We've taken it upon ourselves to help all you Santa's helpers out there hatch ideas and maybe take some of the stress off of searching for the perfect gift by presenting you with 20 Days of Walrus! Why 20? We like to be different, that' s why! For the next 20 days we be enlightening the masses with our favourite items in stock for this season. 

So let's begin with everyone's favourite game: Secret Santa! Whether you work in an office tower or a bustling cafe, you know the hassle of Secret Santa. Not so much giving gifts to your co-workers (they aren't that bad!) but the customary $20 limit and the anonymous nature of the gift giving makes it so difficult to buy a gift that someone will actually want. Which is especially sad when you're playing the version of Secret Santa where you can trade gifts and for some reason people keep trading your gift for something else. Don't let it happen again! Here is our quick list of Secret Santa gifts around $20 to make anyone - even Steve in accounting - happy.
