It's that time of year — the streets are lined with twinkly lights, Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is playing on a loop at the grocery store, and, as usual, you don't have a present for your upcoming Secret Santa gift exchange. Yup, we've all been there.
Luckily, we're not strangers to uncovering the best gifts on the market. We know exactly what is takes for someone to say, "This is seriously the best gift I've ever gotten," which is why we created this guide of incredible presents for every kind of Secret Santa gift swap, from the one your boss makes you do with your coworkers to the annual one you've been doing with your best friends for as long as you can remember. Oh, and did we mention all of these gifts are $30 and under? That's because you don't need to go overboard when it comes to finding a good gift — you can leave that part to us.
Ahead, we've curated a list of thoughtful, practical, useful, and creative presents for everyone you might be shopping for. These gifts are a bit more sophisticated than the kind you might find at a white elephant exchange, since Secret Santa is all about surprising your recipient with the best gift of all.
