Gift exchanges are supposed to be fun, but how many times have they ended with you frantically running up and down the aisles of CVS or Walgreens looking for a last-minute present?
Finding the right Secret Santa gift is a true dilemma. It has to be personal but not too personal, nice but not expensive, and useful without being showboaty. Lucky for you, we found 14 really great options that fit the bill so you can go forth and give with confidence.
No, this isn't actual crack, but damn is it close. The secret? Dude Sweet candies the nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia, and soy nuts, to be exact) before mixing them with chocolate for this addictive, bark-style treat. P.S. If your giftee is allergic to nuts, Dude Sweet's dark chocolate-sesame-balsamic bars are equally delicious (even if they don't have as fun of a name).
Whether you drew someone you don't know very well or you're just swamped with a capital S, it's totally acceptable to phone a friend—namely, Greetabl. Choose a small item from the Greetabl shop (gummies, candles, confetti, lip balm, tea, the list goes on), pick a box design, add photos and a personal message, and you're set with a super-thoughtful gift that didn't take you hours to find.
This coffee kit is about as extra as it gets (without costing a fortune). It comes with five biodegradable, pour-over filters that are prefilled with sustainably sourced Vietnamese coffee and five packs of sweetened condensed milk. Watch everyone from French press loyalists to old-fashioned drip drinkers fall in love with this tasty brew.
Charming and just plain cute, these sticky notes do it better than your average Post-it. The butterfly stickies come in five colors and have just enough realistic detail to be adorable, not creepy. And honestly, what daily reminders wouldn't look more inspiring on the back of a butterfly?
Bookworms, get ready: These handmade soy candles are inspired by books and the magic of reading. This particular fragrance is a nod to Harry Potter's drink of choice, but you can also choose from scents like Headmaster's Office, Bookstore, Sherlock's Study, and Winter Keep. Yeah, order a couple for yourself too.
