The holiday season is upon us, and there is so much to do! Baking, decorating, and of course, shopping for gifts. If your office or family does a secret Santa exchange, it can be challenging to come up with really good secret Santa gifts.
Personally, I find that I am short on time, especially during the holidays. The convenience of shopping online for Christmas gifts is so easy. I do almost all my holiday shopping on Amazon and other online stores.
Many of my readers are seeking good secret Santa gifts and white elephant gift ideas. So, I put together this list of my favorite gift items found during my shopping. I’ve included gifts that are stylish, functional, and nice to receive. Any of these would be perfect for your secret Santa gift recipient. These are also great Christmas gift ideas for people who are hard to shop for (it seems we all have one on our holiday gift list)!
This list of secret Santa gift ideas is also affordable! Many gift exchanges have a dollar limit, so I’ve tried to include items that would be appropriate for almost any price point. Happy shopping and happy holidays!

16 Good Secret Santa Gifts
1. Everyone needs a great pair of Fuzzy Socks this time of year – many colors to choose from!
Fuzzy socks are perfect secret Santa gifts because you don’t need to know the recipient’s size. Most socks are one-size-fits-all. Fluffy socks like these are exceptionally luxurious and warm. They’re perfect for cuddling up by the fire or watching a movie with a cup of cocoa.
2. This Portable Charger can come in handy when someone is on the go!
If your secret Santa gift recipient travels or commutes, a portable charger is a real life-saver. There’s nothing worse than realizing you’re away from home and your phone is on its last bars. A simple, portable charger is practical but appreciated.
3. ‘To Accomplish’ Sticky Note Set a great way to stay organized on a to-do list!
Is there a real goal-getter on your secret Santa list? These “to accomplish” sticky notes will help them get it all done! These are great gifts for office mates or coworkers, too. Everyone appreciates and uses sticky notes to stay organized. Five different phases packages to choose from…funny ones too!
4. Pink Clay Exfoliating Facial Mask is great for gentle and soothing exfoliation.
Self-care is essential, especially around the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Gift your secret Santa partner a special treat with this pink clay exfoliating facial mask. This will turn any ordinary afternoon into a mini spa day.
This marble coffee mug looks like a designer piece. The marbling is lovely. Plus, who doesn’t love a special coffee (or tea) mug? This mug is an excellent gift for anyone on your list. It may become their new favorite coffee cup.
6. These Rose Gold Stud Earrings are stunning with gorgeous color – love them!
If your secret Santa partner is a woman, rose gold earrings are universally flattering. I’ve found rose gold is the most popular color right now, whether it’s on accessories, your cell phone, or your hair. Everyone loves this color. It looks ultra-lux, and it goes with practically everything.
7. This Travel Water Bottle is not only stylish but BPA free and comes in a variety of colors!
A quality water bottle is such a nice secret Santa gift. This travel water bottle has a sleek design with a handle for toting around. We all know that hydration is essential. Encourage your Secret Santa partner to drink up with this thoughtful and practical gift!
8. Acrylic Jewelry/Makeup Organizer – a beautiful way to stay organized – comes in additional colors!
These acrylic containers are so versatile! Your secret Santa gift recipient could use them to organize desk accessories, makeup, jewelry, and even craft supplies. If you know someone who loves to stay organized, this is the perfect gift. Acrylic gives these containers a modern, fashion-forward look.
9. Phone Grip A must-have for phones or tablets. This rose gold is pretty but so many colors to choose from!
If you haven’t yet tried a phone grip, you will be amazed at how much easier it is to hang onto your device. Better yet, phone grips also act as kickstands to keep your phone or tablet propped up when needed. There are plenty of options for Christmas gifts (you may want to buy more than one)!
10. LED Lightbox What a fun way to express yourself at home or in the office!
This is one of my favorite creative secret Santa gifts on the list. It’s an excellent gift for a wordsmith, writer, blogger, or bibliophile. Give those word-lovers a lightbox so they can craft and change up their personal message regularly.
11. Tri-Fold Makeup Mirror An awesome gift for a girl on the go. And it lights up! I would love one myself!
A pretty makeup mirror is a beautiful idea for gift exchanges. It’s something sleek and elegant, but so useful as well. Your holiday gift will be appreciated every time she needs to check her makeup or fix her hair before an appointment.
12. Burts Bees Gift Set I personally use some of these Burt’s Bees products…love them so much!
The Burt’s Bees products feel a little luxurious and exclusive. They’re made with natural ingredients, making them an excellent gift for almost anyone. While men don’t often receive beauty products in a gift exchange, these items are appropriate gifts for women or men. Even guys experience dry skin (especially in the winter).
13. I love the sleek design of this Portable Bluetooth Speaker that puts out big sound for its tiny size!
This is an excellent gift for your music-loving friend, your coworker who streams Spotify all day, or your boss who loves to listen to podcasts. A Bluetooth speaker allows you to connect to any phone or tablet and experience plenty of sound. Plus, these speakers are just so pretty!
14. Essie Gel Polish My absolute fav nail polish. Get the clear top coat for long-lasting nail color!
Essie nail polish lasts and lasts. The gel polish doesn’t require UV curing like some gels, and it has that high-gloss shine. Nail polish is a fun gift for your coworkers, a great Christmas gift for a girlfriend, or a sweet secret Santa surprise.
15. Marble iPhone Case Stylish and chic marble design phone covers…so many patterns to choose from!
Once again, the look of marble is so luxurious. This phone case has a real designer feel (but it’s so affordable). Check out your secret Santa gift recipient’s phone to ensure you order the best case for their device (sizes vary by brand, year, and edition)
16. L’Occitane Shea Hand Cream A little luxury for the hands – rich with shea butter! Great to keep in the purse during the winter months!
If I had to pick one beauty gift for everyone, it would be this hand cream. The smell isn’t overpowering with honey, almond, and coconut oil. This lotion really stays on your hands (without feeling greasy) and lasts through washing. This is a great Christmas gift for a teacher or a nice gift for a nurse—anyone who needs to wash their hands often or gets dry skin in the winter.
