Secret Santa Success

Whether you’re participating in a Secret Santa or White Elephant gift exchange it can be tricky picking the perfect gift. And with how busy everything gets during the holidays it can be even more difficult to put time into coordinating something your recipient will like. That’s why I put together a short list of sure-fire gifts everyone young, old, male or female is sure to love.  

Chocolate—Candy and shareable chocolate is the gift that keeps on giving. Anyone who receives it will love enjoying it themselves or sharing it with family. I just recommend you skip the regular chocolate bars and boxes you can always find and spring for the specialty chocolates or even holiday-wrapped sets. 

Of-The-Month Subscription—From foods like cheese and candy to household items like candles and books, there are seemingly endless “Of-The-Month Boxes” to choose from. It doesn’t matter what you pick, people love the opportunity to try new things. That’s what makes this gift so ideal. 

Blanket—Nothing says cozy holiday gift quite like a warm blanket. We recommend getting one that’s plush, a fun color and most of all on sale! Don’t forget to get a gift bag big enough to wrap it in!

House Plant—You can never go wrong with a good plant. Whether you get kitchen herbs, like basil and parsley, or common windowsill plants, like succulents, people are sure to appreciate the simple, natural beauty of house plants. 

Charcuterie Board—You don’t need to give people the meat, cheese and crackers for this classic gift to be a fan favorite. Find a well-crafted wooden charcuterie board with accompanying spreading knives and any gift recipient is sure to be delighted. 

I hope these gift ideas make your holiday shopping a little easier this year. And if any of these ideas look good to you, I hope you add them to your own Christmas wish list or simply treat yourself!
