21 Genius Gift Ideas That Work for Any Secret Santa Exchange

House Beautiful Logo By Brittney Morgan of House Beautiful | Slide 1 of 22: Secret Santa gift exchanges can be a fun way to make gift-giving more exciting or interesting, but they can also pose a unique shopping challenge. For starters, if you've never done a Secret Santa exchange before, essentially, everyone participating draws a name of someone else in the group and purchases a gift for that person, all while keeping their identity a secret until after the recipient has opened their present (and typically, made a guess at who their Secret Santa is). And whether you're exchanging gifts with your family, friends, or even coworkers, you might draw the name of someone you don't know particularly well or haven't shopped for before, which can make finding the perfect gift a challenge.If you don't know what to buy for your Secret Santa exchange this year, this list can help. These gifts are unique, thoughtful, and useful—plus, they're all priced under $50 (and there are plenty of options under $25, too!) and work whether you're shopping for your second cousin or your favorite colleague. Happy shopping!
