Almost a quarter of East Anglians will buy two or more Secret Santa gifts this year, spending £9.49 per gift
Thirteen per cent have received a rude or insulting gift
One in five have re-gifted a present they didn’t like
A BAG OF SPROUTS, novelty loo roll and a Simon Cowell mask are among the strangest Secret Santa gifts Brits have received, according to a new survey.
Researchers who polled 2,000 UK adults identified some of the weird and wonderful presents they’ve ever received – including cat food and Cumberland sausages.
Other bizarre items include a T-shirt with their work bestie’s face on it, an inflatable turkey and a grow your own boyfriend kit.
Commissioned by high street chain, wilko, the research also identified the top 40 most popular Secret Santa presents, with a festive tipple taking top spot, followed by chocolate and gift cards.
Sweets, socks, perfume and toiletries featured too, along with photo frames, flowers and make-up.
