Under-$20 Secret Santa Gifts Everyone Will Want To Steal

Unless you have that perfect peach candle Emma Stone crooned about on SNL, finding the right Secret Santa gift is, frankly, a pain in the ass. It needs to fall within a certain price range, please every last person in the group, and be available at a moment's notice. Personally, we think the answer here is booze, but not everyone shares our sentiment.

So, we rounded up tons of unexpected beauty gifts that are sure to be stolen first. Ahead you'll find quirky, cute, cool, and even practical options that work for every gift exchange you'll be attending — and they start at only $5.
