Woman left fuming as she shows pricey Secret Santa gift she got her colleague & the cheap bag she was given in return | The Sun

IT'S the Christmas tradition that involves colleagues exchanging presents, without knowing who it's from.

But one woman showed the importance of having a price limit on things, after being left sorely disappointed by what she was given.

"This is why I don't play Secret Santa," Monique wrote over the top of her TikTok video.

She showed herself taking items that she'd bought for her colleague out of the back – including a Fenty Beauty mascara, which retails for £23.

She then pulled out an £8.99 Lanolips strawberry lip balm and a beauty sample.

Monique then showed the bag she'd been given in return – which contained an orange, a cucumber, a banana and some little sweets.

Clearly unimpressed with the gift, she hurriedly shoved the tissue paper back into the bag.

"First gift is what I gave my secret Santa," she wrote in the video caption.

"Second is what I got – I hate it here!"

And the comments section was quickly filled with people admitting they'd found themselves in similar situations.

"One time we did secret Santa at work and the guy who had me got fired the day we gave gifts and I got nothing," a third commented.

"My mum's work did secret santa, the budget was $25, my mom gave pjs set and she received a used tiny box of PAPER CLIPS!!" someone else wrote.

"How embarrassing!" another said.

"I would confront them and ask for their secret Santa gift in exchange for what she gave you."

"I swear I always make the best gifts and always get the most plain and bad ones," someone else said.

"People are greedy sometimes," another wrote.

"They’ll get the cheapest thing and more than likely walk away with a better gift."
