Cold sweats? Racing pulse? Feeling of impending doom? Yep, it's only six weeks until Christmas, and that means a litany of awkwardness is heading your way. The stand-out of which is the office Kris Kringle.

This year could be different, though, thanks to the Grinches at PayPal, who have put together the ultimate collection of price-sensitive rubbish, perfect for tossing under the poorly dressed Christmas tree next to the water cooler. These so-called gifts include a remote-controlled tarantula, massage balls (we're not laughing), vintage Christmas song CDs and an extraordinary number of moustache-related items.

But which office drone goes with which landfill-worthy item? Again, PayPal has you covered, having devised a nifty personality breakdown tool to quickly identify the gift that best suits Ralph in the mail room, Sandy in marketing or that strange cross-eyed fellow you only ever see in the bathroom.

If this sounds like exactly the amount of effort you want to put in to buying Kris Kringle gifts this year, head over to the Instakringle website.

Bah freakin' humbug.
