Secret Santa Gift Ideas

What is a Secret Santa?

A Secret Santa is one of many people – perhaps a team of work colleagues who has along with the others in that team, agreed to randomly select a person from that group to buy a Christmas gift for. The value of the gift is usually agreed in advance and is the same for every person. You don’t get to choose who you are buying for. Names may be drawn from a hat and you’re meant to keep the identity of who you selected at random a secret – hence the term ‘Secret Santa’.

People usually employee the Secret Santa system to save people spending too much money on gifts for too many people. It is common in work places, schools and occasionally families.

Having a strict budget can be restrictive as can buying a gift for someone you may not know too well. So what do you buy them? You can’t ask them what they would like and you can’t ask those who know them what they’d like without revealing your secret Santa Status. This can make choosing a gift that will be enjoyed fairly tricky.

To make this easier for you I have handpicked some low budget gift items that are either funny or practical and can be enjoyed by a broad range of people. Take a peep!

I have tried to keep the gift selection under $15 and is some cases they’re less than $5.
