  In theory, Secret Santa is a great idea. In practice, it can be a
  little underwhelming. You could end up with that cozy scarf your
  best friend knew you wanted - or, you could end up with
  lackluster socks from your neighbor that will definitely end up
  in your re-gift pile.

  Whether you're responsible for getting a gift for someone you
  know really well or someone you barely do, get them a gift they
  won't relegate to the storage closet. If you're spending money,
  make it count with something they'll actually want. 

  Don't worry, we already did the grunge work and found 50 gifts
  that your secret Santa recipient will love. We've got everything
  from the more generically-appealing, like a pretty candle for your sweet
  coworker, to the more personal, like a portable cheese melter for
  your cheese-obsessed friend. Plus, they're all $25 or less, so
  scroll with abandon.
