Secret Santa Gifts Under $30 That Don’t Suck!

Are you snowed in today like I am? I took this time to come up with some more gift ideas for you! The holidays mean Christmas parties with co-workers, friends, and family, and if you’re like a good majority of the population — Secret Santa gift exchanges! These exchanges usually come with a budget attached to them, which can make it a little tough to give something nice.

I’ve put together this fun little idea board, and the best part is… everything is currently $30 and under! I’d be more than happy to receive any of these things in a gift exchange, wouldn’t you?

What’s the best or worst thing you’ve ever received in a Secret Santa exchange?
