  • Wine! Haha


  • I love the idea of perthluckystar! :-)
    What about some toilet paper with the face of Donald Trump on it? You can find it on Internet! :-)
    (I didn’t understand at first that the gifts are meant to be naughty!)


  • I would suggest wine and chocolate.


  • A nice bottle of wine or champagne will always be well received I think.


  • Maybe visit a thrift store for novelty games for a party.


  • bad santa i think means a bit naughty novelty presents, I would go with a small bucket (for when they over indulge) fill it with chips, lollies maybe a little bottle of wine or a stubby. Think outside the box or back to what you or someone you know might have gotten up to as a teen


  • There are heaps of things at Target and Kmart for under 20 bucks.
    There are little cocktail mixers, Tobasco/ chilli sauce packs for games on who can take the hottest sauce and all that sort of stuff.
    Hopefully that helps!


  • Given it’s a party theme, you go to kids parties (as do I haha) and I assume it’s meant to be a quirky or slightly inappropriate gift, what about a kids water bottle or a used but clean baby bottle filled with M&Ms or Malteasers? A small box of chocolates wrapped in a kids nappy? The ingredients for making fairy bread or a gingerbread mix in a gift box from the local discount shop?


  • A big box of chocolates, maybe in festive theme. There are a lot of specials going on at the moment, and some big brands are even half price.


  • Biscuits, mixed lollies, cake, slices are all considered bad by some people.
    Problem with food is do any of the group have genuine special dietary needs?
    Bottles of water for the reindeers? Certainly not expected. UHT milk.
    You can take a variety of items. I don’t have much imagination.


  • things you could take to a party gifts – wine glass, ice bucket, pot plant (if it was a housewarming party), cheeseboard and knife, – weird theme but loads of options provided here – i would stay away from actual food gifts though, – good luck


  • Festive food is always a winner as a gift!


  • Chocolate is always good?!


  • Check out catch.com.au they have a section for kris kringle gifts and under $20


  • Why is it called bad Santa? Are you supposed to bring a bad present? I think of the movie Bad Santa, he wasn’t very nice. Just curious as to why your gift giving at work is also called bad santa
