7 Cool Secret Santa Gifts

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Secret Santa is one of those traditions that never go out of style. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, both in a figurative and literal sense. You get to surprise someone with a gift while being surprised yourself at the end result of someone else’s gift. Sometimes, it can be pretty difficult to decide on a personalized gift for people you might not know very well. After all, your gift recipient isn’t your choice. Still, there are countless cool gift ideas that you can choose from that will make anyone happy.

1. Custom leather keychain
Some of the best gifts are those that you can customize to your heart’s delight. They give you the opportunity for near-infinite variety. If you know the person you’re buying the gift for well, you’re going to have a blast with coming up with ways to customize the gift.

Leather keychains are considered a pretty safe bet when it comes to gift-giving. You’re hardly going to find someone that doesn’t have keys, which means a keychain is something they might need. Even if they already have one, they’re still going to want to attach one more, especially if you make it special.

Engrave it with their name or a running joke in your friend group. It’s going to go well with the theme of secret Santa. You don’t have to outright reveal it was you with a personalized gift, but you can drop some subtle hints through the custom keychain.

2. Mermaid tail blanket
Sometimes it helps to get a little crazy with your gift ideas. There's no better occasion to come up with a gift that is really out there. It's not like anyone will know it was you. This is where a mermaid tail blanket comes in.

It's practical, it's comfy, and it's absolutely ridiculous. It won't exactly go with a lot of décor items in your gift recipient's home, but it's sure to be a blast of a gift. Those late-night ice cream binges while watching TV will be made even more comfortable by your cozy gift idea.

3. Cocktail kit
Making cocktails is always harder than it looks in recipe videos and guides. How do you tell how much is three and a half ounces by sight alone? The thing is, you don’t actually do it by sight alone. Half the trouble of making cocktails is getting the necessary tools together.

Most people probably don’t have a dedicated cocktail drawer full of measuring cups and shakers. However, it might be time to change that. It’s the ideal gift idea for a party, especially since everyone benefits from it at one point or another. It’s like a gift to the whole crew. Plus, you’re allowing the recipient to expand their cocktail recipe horizons when you give them these necessary tools.

Even if they don’t drink alcohol, they’ll still appreciate the gift quite a bit. Cocktails don’t have to be alcoholic, either. You can make some perfectly delicious drinks for your family without adding a drop of alcohol, meaning everyone can enjoy cocktails.

4. Ceramic planter pots
Even if they don’t exactly have a green thumb, your gift recipient will probably have a couple of plants around their home. They’re an essential part of a home’s décor and they go well with just about any style.

Where there are plants, there’s also pottery involved. You need a place to put your plants and the dirt that holds them. Most people don’t really think their plant pots through, which means they could use a couple of creative ideas in the form of a gift.

Geometric shapes are all the rage right now and there are tons of interesting designs for ceramic pots that you can choose from. A dodecahedron-type planter pot would look gorgeous on any contemporary work desk. Your recipient can plant a low-maintenance flower inside of it and enjoy a gorgeous view every time they sit down to get some work done.

5. Scented candles
You can’t go wrong with candles. They're a universally loved source of natural light during the night time. They help set the mood in more ways than one. Not only do you get a nice and cozy view of your room, but you also get to enjoy some enchanting scents if you pick out the right kind of candle.
There are countless scented candles that you can find both online and in physical stores. They come in many shapes and sizes, so you’ll never want for a creative gift choice. Try to get a good feel of what kind of scents most people will like and you won’t go wrong with your choice.

6. A seasonal food hamper
When in doubt, you can always bet on food to elicit a good reaction. Even if you don’t know this person all that well, you can pretty much guarantee that they’ll enjoy some snacks that match the season.

It’s always a good idea to go for lots of variety in your food gifts. Gifts like Christmas hampers contain tons of festive delights that anyone would adore. Seasonal foods and wine never go out of style. Help them get their first taste of the holiday spirit with a bunch of tasty treats. It’s sure to go over well with anyone.

7. Reclaimed record coasters
You'll be hard-pressed to find someone who isn't a fan of music. You're even less likely to find someone that doesn't enjoy the aesthetic of old records. Even though they're considered artsy and collectibles nowadays, there are still tons of records that have simply been worn out and can't be used for listening to music.

On the other hand, they can be reclaimed and made into cozy drink coasters! This kind of upcycling of records is sure to impress anyone, no matter the record used. It’s a surefire choice for a cute and cool gift.

Picking out a secret Santa gift isn't all that difficult. You just have to look at the big picture. If you feel like the idea would be beloved by everyone in the group, you're sure to get it right. Some of these ideas are pretty popular crowd-pleasers, while still having a unique twist to them. Get it right and you'll secretly be the best secret Santa of the whole group.
