We love the idea of participating in a Secret Santa exchange but finding an affordable and delightful unique gift can be a high-pressure situation, with one wrong move resulting in public displays of awkwardness. (Whoever is thinking that gifting a roll of toilet paper in the year 2020 is funny — this list is especially for you.)
The difficulty of hunting for cheap gifts shouldn’t be a reason to give up before you even start, so be sure you're doing your part when you sign up for the exchange. We’ve rounded up gifts that are more than worthy of holiday swaps — and completely in your budget (yes, they all ring in at $15 or below). Say goodbye to lazy, last-minute finds, and hello to within budget, but still totally awesome, presents anyone would want to receive.
