22 Funny Secret Santa Ideas Under $20, Because Laughter Is The Best Gift
It's that time of year again — no, not Christmas or Hanukkah — Secret Santa gifting season! Secret Santa can be super fun, but finding funny Secret Santa gifts under a certain price point can be, uh, super stressful. Add in the fact that you most likely don't know the person whose name you pulled for Secret Santa very well, and shopping can seem kinda like a nightmare. Although Pinterest has some decent DIY gift ideas, you want to give something that the recipient can use, or at least get a laugh from. After all, laughter is always the best present, and it doesn't have to cost you that much.
Most Secret Santa exchanges cap the gift off at about $20, so I have rounded up the best — and OK, possibly craziest — things on the Internet to give someone anonymously (although you are totally going to want to take credit for these lil' gems). Whether you are doing a Secret Santa exchange with your coworkers at the office party, or with your friends and family at a holiday gathering, here are 22 gifts under $20 that won't break the bank, and are pretty much guaranteed to give your Secret Santa a chuckle.
