The point of Secret Santa is that it's supposed to be fun (remember Installment One: Secret Santa is Supposed to be Fun?), and by taking a more casual, lighthearted approach to things, it is fun! Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that every gift you give cost $1, but the point of this exercise is to prove that you don't need to spend a lot to get a positive result. Nothing says Christmas quite like a Christmas tree, and what better way to start the season by giving a shiny new ornament for trimming said tree?
Ever have those times when everyone wants to play Gin Rummy or Spades, but NO ONE can find a deck of cards? The Dollar Tree had a whole section of nightlights, so if your giftee isn't interested in sports, you've got plenty more options there.
How many times have you had to strap down some awkward, oversized instinct purchase without the right tools? Ok, so this is probably the first gender-specific gift here (although I don't want to speak too soon.
I covered some thin cardboard (from a spaghetti box) in burlap ribbon (the same kind I used for my Chevron Bunting and Beach Scavenger Hunt, actually).
The Dollar Tree had a huge selection of Crossword puzzle, Sudoku, Word Find, and Trivia books.
The bar at The ArchWhy go:Marylebone combines old London charm ? all twinkly street lights, leafy squares and York stone pavements ? with a location that?s pretty much unrivalled for huge shopping opportunities. The questions YOU ask during a job interview are just as important as the answers you give. In today?s overstretched, overscheduled world, we feel like we are constantly reacting and not really in control of our days. I happened to pick up this Harry & David snack at Homegoods, too, but almost every retailer has inexpensive pre-packaged holiday snacks at this time of year. I can't say enough about Trader Joes for gift ideas (remember me rambling on about their lovely fresh flowers?).
It doesn't get much better than homemade treats around the holiday season, and those of you with special recipes can easily whip up some of your favorites as a "foodie" gift. So while there's nothing ground-breaking about giving out yummy treats around the holidays, it's nice to think about new ways to prepare them.
Don't forget to pair them with some ideas from our previous installments of the Secret Santa Success Series! If you worry too much about whether or not the recipient will like their gifts, you can expend a lot of needless energy in the wrong area.
Each one came from the Dollar Tree, and cost $1 (the exception being the last gift where I combined 4 $1 items). Mix a couple of these one-dollar ideas with some bigger gifts, and you've have a great Secret Santa Run. Most of these items are things that people will probably need at some point anyway, so why not take advantage of that?


There was a whole wall of ornaments to choose from (I just realized there are a ton on their website, too), so your style options aren't too limited here. Tied with a ribbon and finished with a cute tag, this treat makes a simple first Secret Santa gift. This baby gives you plenty of options so you can tackle those weird projects that come along. But in terms of sports, they had baseball, basketball, football, and soccer, so if you've got a fan of any of those activities, you're in luck! You can't go wrong with this handy screen cleaner that they can throw in their desk or car. Okay, maybe that scenario plays out more in my scattered DIY-lifestyle than is typical, but still, you never know when you'll need a bungee cord. I'm not opposed to anyone wearing these, but in general, I think you're safer gifting them to a female), but they were so darn cute, how can I resist? A popular gift choice as it is, but here you're paying a lot less than at some other major retailers. Check out the $1 Valentine's Gifts Series--all of the gifts featured could be easily adapted for Secret Santa or Stocking Stuffers! Check out our selection of the best office-appropriate pressies.Everyone loves a Christmas bath bomb or two, and Lush are one step ahead, already creating a Secret Santa gift set.
UK, publisher of Marie Claire and other iconic brands about its goods and services, and those of its carefully selected third parties. But if you feel that your baking skills aren't quite gift-worthy, grab a boxed mix, follow the easy directions, and voila!
It may not seem like a lot of money to give, but every little bit counts, and it'll give your giftee an excuse to enjoy a great meal out! These options allow you to continue maintaining a conservative budget during the whole Secret Santa process.
That can lead to spending more money than you need in an effort to compensate for not knowing whether the gifts will be appreciated. In addition, the gift tags hold clever (errr, super-cheesy) messages, to communicate a personal, light-hearted touch.
The packaging here consisted of a linen bag (I have a bunch of them on hand because I love them; I got them from Save on Crafts) and another gift tag.
I just hold a soft spot in my heart for the Yankees, so I chose a more specific message :). With a creamy snowcake soap plus a warming wintry Lush Pudding bath bomb, you couldn't get more festive if you tried. You could display it in a cute little basket, or even a Dollar Tree colander, add some ribbon, and you've got a classy, finished look! Around the holidays they have so many great holiday-themed treats, and not all of them are candy, so the health-consicous giftees on your list may appreciate one of the "less caloric" choices.


Then, check out the restaurants available (depending on your region, there may be many or only a few). I think it started in Chicago, so I'm willing to bet there are a lot more participating restaurants out there. Your backpack?  I know in the days after Hurricane Sandy, we couldn't get enough of them!
These are very trendy right now, and some big-fashion retailers are selling them for A LOT more than a dollar. I would love to hear your comments and I read them all--even if it's an old post!Unfortunately, I had to disallow anonymous commenting because of too many spammers :(Look forward to hearing from you! And I don't know anyone who doesn't appreciate having some pasta essentials on hand for the nights they don't feel like cooking. Homegoods has a lot of high-end options, so it's a great place to shop for those with particularly-discerning palates.
You'll notice that you can buy a gift certificate (in many denominations) for less than the face value.
Wrap them in a giftbox (used Spritz giftboxes from Target-sorry, can't find a link, they were on an endcap near the party section), tie it closed with some cute cord and a bow (both also on that Target endcap), and you've got one fancy-looking present. If you've got someone who fits the bill for this gift, then scoop them up (and maybe grab a set for yourself, too, like I did)!
But either way, the prices are great, and how cool is that as an inexpensive Secret Santa gift? I took scrapbook paper, glued it to thin cardboard, and used Glue Dots to attach the flashlight from the bottom. Just be sure you're aware that there is usually a minimum purchase required to use the gift certificate. In the example I just gave, there is a $15 minimum purchase required to use that $10 gift certificate. The minimum purchases are generally very reasonable, so even with that caveat, it's almost always a great deal. I just discovered our favorite pizza place has a $5 gift certificate for only $2 (with a $7.50 minimum); considering the fact that we average about a pizza a week from there, we really need to buy a bunch of those for ourselves! Do not use them, they last about 2 minutes and they die, unless you are using them in low drain things like remotes or flashlights, but it has to be a really cheap flashlight that isn't too bright.
