I don't even know what cabin socks are, but they sound like a winner here.  (Warm, fuzzy socks maybe?)

 

The desk calendar sounds nice, too, unless your company already supplies one.  If you're getting it for their at-home use, people usually use their phones for such.  Or wall calendars.

 

If your friend uses a re-useable water bottle, that would be nice.  I just got a complimentary glass one from Sakara and was disappointed it's not to be put in the dishwasher.  Window vase it will be.

 

The mirror sounds nice, but people who don't carry a compact of any kind will look at themselves in their phone for touchups.

 

 


I agree with Lucky Charm. Who carries or uses a compact these days for touch ups? 

 

  • Desk calendar ~ this seems like a dated idea. 
  • Cabin socks - don't know what they are.
  • Water bottle - I use one everyday.

I also don't like cabin socks.
I vote for the mirror

How did most here get hung up on cabin socks?   I, for one, don't wear socks - they would be donated in a flash.

 

Can't go wrong with a Gift Card....

These are an example of cabin socks.

Personally, I would love to get a pair of cabin socks as a gift, and I would wear them!

Re: Secret Santa Gift Help Please

I'm at the stage in life where I don't want any of those things.  But what I would like is food cards like to Chick Fil A or a coffee house, or maybe a pizza.  My grocery store has a vast selection.
