Though people often regard Secret Santa as an impersonal gifting experience, it doesn't have to be. If you're going to spend the money and time finding someone a gift, why not make it extra personal? Why not go all out and get the most thoughtful gift you can find? It is only one gift you're responsible for, after all. Don't get your Secret Santa buddy a throwaway gift just because you don't have to worry about an even exchange, get your buddy a Secret Santa gift that they will actually use.

You should look at it an an opportunity to focus all of your efforts into totally nailing one gift for one lucky person. And hey, what goes around comes around!
