Christmas is this weekend.

Do you see alarms flashing and are panicking you haven't bought your Secret Santa gift?

Do not fear.

Ah! We never learn.

Avoid the obvious gift-card option with our best last-minute Secret Santa gifts.

It's our gift to you.

Personalised gifts from The Daily Edited

Your Secret Santa will have no idea you've left their present to the last minute with a beautifully packaged, personalised item from The Daily Edited.

Shop online until December 20 to get your gift in time for Christmas if you live in metropolitan Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne.

There's free shipping over $150, or pop into their store in the QVB if you're a Sydney-sider.

They are also currently offering 20 per cent off - just saying.

Beach bags, candles and more at The Iconic

One of the main reasons we love The Iconic, aside from its wide range of high-quality products, is the unbeatable delivery service.

While you may not land same-day delivery on some products right now, you can still shop by delivery date, with next-day or super-fast delivery to your door without anyone noticing you are last-minute shopping.

The Iconic has a huge range, from woven straw beach hats, beach bags, chic candles your Secret Santa will actually like, as well as bed linen and a huge collection of beautiful Turkish towels (always a good gift).
