Secret Santa gifts are tricky territory to navigate, but that’s why we’re here to help. Whether you’re doing a gift exchange with your family or a group of friends, it can feel nerve-racking if you end up with the one person you’re not especially close to. Plus, Secret Santa gift exchanges usually have a price cap, which limits your shopping even more. But, not to fear: these 25 gifts are all $50 or less, so you don’t have to stress.
Every one of these gifts is general enough that you could give it to your cousin you don’t know so well, but still thoughtful enough to give to your best friend. There’s something for plant-lovers, beauty-lovers, and everything in between. Whether you’re looking for a kit where they can make their own hot sauce, an at-home face mask kit, or a cool, high-tech notebook, there’s a present in here that will make anyone smile. They’re so cute, you might even want to buy one for yourself, on the off chance that your Secret Santa didn’t read our gift guide. Keep on reading to shop our top picks!
