Looking for unusual Secret Santa gifts under $20? We’ll give you 50 tips for fun surprises that you’d love to get yourself as a Secret Santa gift….
Every year, my friends have this wonderful yet nerve-wracking tradition: Secret Santa! I assume you know exactly what that is. You don’t? Just to remind you: draw the name of a friend, get them a Secret Santa gift. On the due date (usually on or just before Christmas), everyone meets again, places their gift on a table or in a sack as unobserved as possible, with a name label for the recipient. Then it’s time to unwrap the presents! And then the big puzzle begins… Who could have given me such a gift?!? 😀
Before that, there is always one question to be answered: what is the maximum price for a Secret Santa gift? From junk Secret Santa (no money may be spent on it) to sum x… (I wonder if millionaires do Secret Santa among themselves?) there are many possibilities. We usually agree on a sum in the lower range: Santa gifts up to 5 euros, Santa gifts up to 10 euros or Secret Santa gifts under $20. Accordingly, I have often been on the lookout for ideas and there are so many great things that you would like to give someone (or get yourself), but unfortunately there is only one opportunity per year!
At least we can share our search for ideas with you and help you find the brilliant Secret Santa gift under $20 that will be the number one topic of conversation this year when you and your friends unwrap! 😉
