Secret Santa gift exchanges are popular around the Christmas holidays. When participating in a Secret Santa gift exchange, it can be hard to think of gift ideas, especially if you do not know your person very well. There are some unusual gift ideas that can be catered to the specific interests of everyone participating and that will be different from typical Secret Santa gifts.

Office Supplies

Secret Santa gift exchanges often take place at work with fellow employees and there are several different unusual office supplies that can make great secret Santa gifts.

The website Worldwidefred.com has a pad of sticky notes that looks like a pad of butter on a piece of toast. It also plays on the idea of the typical, pink office message note pads with a pink memo notepad called "While You Were Out Cold" notes.

<p>Quincyshop.com also sells unusual office supplies like a magnetic singing bird for paper clips and a skull-shaped stapler.

The holidays are always filled with sweets and treats but when looking for unusual Secret Santa gifts, think outside the box and give food items most people have never even eaten before. Astronaut food is unusual and low priced and makes a great gift. Astronautfoods.com sells food actually developed for and eaten by astronauts. Their products include ice cream, candy, fruit and nuts and dinner foods.

Instead of giving common types of chocolate and candy as a gift, you can give nostalgic candy. Find candy from the decade the person you picked was born in, graduated high school in or the year he was married.
