Between nailing down holiday plans and finding presents for friends and family, the best Secret Santa gifts could easily slip your mind. Who hasn’t found themself at the drugstore next to their office, 45 minutes before the gift exchange, frantically rummaging through bins for something that doesn’t feel like a last-minute afterthought? (No offense to gift cards.)
If you’re still working remotely, this year’s gifting situation will look different for you and your colleagues, but you still don’t want to be doom-scrolling through Amazon Prime the night before their present is supposed to hit their doorstep, crossing your fingers for a halfway-decent item that will actually get there in time. After all, you’ve probably done plenty of Zooming with coworkers rather than seeing them face-to-face, so it’s not the time to let your Secret Santa gift ideas fall flat. (Doing a White Elephant gift exchange? There’s a gift guide for that, too.)
To help you avoid a dud of a present this holiday season, we picked out 45 useful (and affordable) Secret Santa gifts that won’t end up in their giveaway stash by 2022. From festive beauty sets to gadgets they’ll actually use, shop relevant, practical gifts, below.
