Secret Santa Gift Ideas For Students

Give your bank a breather this season.

Secret Santa Christmas Present Making

It’s that time of year again, one too many nights out and before you know it, your funds are way too close to your overdraft for comfort and somehow, your mates have still included you in your flat’s Secret Santa. Yikes. How are you going to make your budget stretch for your friends and still have food in the cupboard? Let alone make it home and give your family Christmas presents as well? It’s all too much.  Fear not kids, Missguided has you covered with fresh and inexpensive Secret Santa gifts that don’t scream ‘im a broke b’. 

We have everything from planners, water bottles, portable phone chargers, and more. So what are you waiting for? There’s no need to give off pound shop vibes this Christmas, give gifts that are affordable and your mates will actually want. Keep on reading to give your bank balance a much-needed break. 

Water Bottles

It’s safe to say that everyone has woken up to how important it is to be sustainable. If everyone in the world worked on their recycling, even just slightly, it would make a massive impact on mother nature. So why not give the gift of sustainability to that one roommate that could be doing a bit more for the environment? A stainless steel water bottle is a great way of reducing plastic usage. Since it can take up to 1,000 years for a single plastic bottle to decompose, we figured one fewer person using plastic drink bottles is a good way to start. Plain water bottles are overrated anyway.

Weekly Planner

Use your Secret Santa game to help a mate that might be struggling with uni workloads, thanks to our weekly planners. Uni can be so tough at times, with looming deadlines, 1-2-1 tutor meetings, and lectures that seem to go on forever, it can take a toll on anyone’s mental health. Getting organised, making a plan and setting deadlines for studying can really help to reduce stress levels. So, if you notice one of your flatmates is struggling, ask. Let them know that you’re there for them and use your Secret Santa game to help them get through a tough time with our weekly timetable.

Portable charger

Needed to order a taxi but your phones just died? Yeah, we’ve all been there. A portable power pack is an essential of student life, but why do they always have to run so expensive? Missguided has you covered with our very own mini emergency charger because there’s nothing worse than having a dead phone when you’re out with your mates. This is truly the perfect Secret Santa gift. A smartphone charger is something everyone wants but no one wants to buy themselves. So, pick up one of our portable chargers to make a mates day.


The thought of a diary notebook gives us serious Mamamia vibes and we’re 100% here for it. Give your roommate the gift of becoming the main character for Secret Santa day with a diary book dedicated to exploring their feelings and emotions. We can all admit this year has been utter crap and our emotions have been all over the place. What better way to sort through your emotions by physically manifesting them onto paper. We’ve got a selection of beautiful diaries for you to choose from, here at Missguided.

Looking for more gift ideas? We’ve got you covered with everything you’ll need to blow Secret Santa day out of the water. There’s nothing better than impressing your mates with killer presents that don’t break the bank. So, what are you waiting for? Get shopping to become king of the uni flat this season.
