    IT Secret Santa Ideas?

    Having a pre Christmas party with a few mates on the 23rd and we're all doing a Secret Santa. The spend limit is 5 and the rules are:

    Nothing sensible
    No smellies
    No chocolate
    No booze

    I've drawn a mate who also works in IT so I'm after some ideas for what to get. Any/all suggestions welcome.

    That doesn't matter in the slightest.

    Also, I want that so damn much.

    Nipple tassels always seem to go down well.

    engadget.com have a section called "crapgadget" which are picks of the most useless items ever. They link to All about USB | USB 3.0, USB Gaming, USB Lifestyle | Brando Workshop quite often, might be worth having a look on there.

    As a non smoker it would matter to me as I don't want to buy something that smells disgusting.

    Dammit, I've already gone one in mind for mine however that mug "My farts hospitalise small children" would be absolutely spot on for the ICT coordinator of one of my primary schools! I'd probably use permanent marker to change "small children" to "any living thing"

    Deal Extreme have a whole heap random "stuff" that could suit, depending on how soon you need it... Decepticon/Autobot cufflinks, assorted techie tools and cables...

    We were told "nothing that might embarrass or offend". I got a book "Where's Wally" book from the book club. Boring I know but great for getting over-excited kids to quieten down for a few moments.
