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 andwhite 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!

Looking for the best secret santa gifts? Look no further! We've got you covered with a list of some of the most popular and unique gifts that are sure to please everyone on your list. From funny gag gifts to heartfelt presents, we've got something for everyone!
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.
If your secret Santa gift recipient travels or commutes, a portable charger is a real lifesaver. 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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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)!
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.
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.
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).
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!
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.
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)
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.
