    28 Secret Santa Gifts Under $25 That You'll Want To Keep For Yourself

    Yule be sorry you didn't buy these for yourself, too.

    1. A mini felt letter board sign for their desk that'll make their workspace the envy of everyone in their office. It comes with 160 letters, numbers, and symbols, so they'll have everything they need to craft their message.

    2. A set of owl succulent pots that will inspire them to become a plant parent. They have drainage holes in their bottoms to keep plants healthy, and come with bamboo saucers, so that no excess dirt or water seep out onto their furniture.

    3. A water filtering straw that they'll definitely want to bring on their next vacation abroad. It's great for backpacking and is a solid alternative to iodine tablets and bulky purifiers.

    4. A personal library kit that any bookworm will appreciate. It'll help them channel their inner librarian and keep track of all the titles in their collection, so their most precious novels never go MIA.

    5. A set of artsy playing cards featuring the mugs of music legends like Prince, Lady Gaga, Freddie Mercury, Woody Guthrie, and Björk. It's perfect for that person who you know loves music, but you aren't quite sure what they listen to.

    6. A colourful glass tumbler so that they can easily take their morning juice or smoothie with them on the go. Now they might actually be able to resist the urge to spend $8 on a cold-pressed beverage (no shade, we've all been there).

    7. A wireless charger to save them from fishing around under their desk for a cord when their phone hits low battery. It has an integrated smart chip that keeps it from overheating and short circuiting.

    8. A non-stick mini griddle that they can use to make everything to breakfast sammies to cookies. It doesn't take up a ton of counter space, making it great for people with petite kitchens.

    9. A set of Burt's Bees essentials that's the perfect companion for holiday travels. It even comes with a makeup bag that they can use to stash all of their new products (plus a few more).

    10. A set of metallic travel flatware that'll save them from using a ton of plastic cutlery. It'll also make their lunch situation the envy of all your coworkers 'cause it's so dang pretty.

    11. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey that's the perfect combo of spicy and sweet and tastes so heavenly that they'll want to drizzle it on everything.

    12. A pair of bestselling wireless headphones that are comfy enough to wear for hours on end and look way more expensive than they actually are. Reviewers are impressed with the sound quality and say they make for great gym headphones.

    13. A set of assorted hair clips to make even their bed head look fabulous. Okay, maybe not fabulous, but a serious step up from the messy bun they've been rocking for the last five days.

    14. A genius avocado slicing tool that splits, pits, and slices. This'll save them from incurring any avocado-related injuries and make whipping up a batch of guac or avo toast a cinch.

    15. An Old Fashioned cocktail kit that includes everything they need (besides alcohol) to craft the perfect boozy beverage. Now they'll be able to create some impressive drinks, even when there are no mixers in sight.

    16. A set of cartoony enamel pins that are perfect for any fashionista who could use a pop of colour on their jean jacket or backpack.

    17. A pizza luggage tag so that they can easily track down their bag on a jam-packed airport carousel (even if it's the same black suitcase that everyone else has). It has an adjustable strap with metal buckle, so that it doesn't budge.

    18. A pair of double-walled glasses that will make your friend feel like a true Parisian while they sip their espresso. They're made to keep drinks hot without hurting hands, so they can drink their coffee when it's piping hot without suffering third degree burns.

    19. A set of mini rug coasters that are probably way prettier than what they're using right now. These have rubber backs to keep water from seeping through and to keep them from slippin' and slidin' around.

    20. A nacho dinosaur and salsa vessel set for all their chip and dip needs. Obvi, they can put other stuff in it, too, but tortilla chips give it that true stegosaurus look.

    21. A bougie coconut wax candle that'll make their home smell like goji berries and tarocco orange. Despite its mini size, it can burn for a full 24 hours, so they'll get plenty of use out of it.

    22. A geometric picture frame that they can use to display their favourite memories in style. You should probs put a flattering selfie of you in it as a placeholder, you know, so they can get the full effect.

    23. A set of matryoshka measuring cups that'll make their baking endeavors a whole lot cuter. They also won't take up a ton of space in your drawers, since they literally nest inside of each other.

    24. A portable drink holder that sticks right to the wall of their shower or bathtub so that they can caffeinate (or pregame) while they get clean. It can fit everything from a mug to a wine glass, and can suction on to tile, glass, and mirrored surfaces.

    25. A cotton throw blanket to keep them warm this holiday season. Remember, anyone who says they don't need more throw blankets is lying. C'mon, we live in Canada. It gets cold.

    26. A ravioli maker for anyone who wants to experiment with Italian cooking. It comes with easy-to-follow recipes for pasta dough and ravioli so they can start testing out their skills as soon as they open it.

    27. An assortment of sherpa-lined slipper socks that they'll probably wear all winter long. They have anti-skid grippers that'll save them from taking a dive on their hardwood.

    28. A handy wine saver that extracts the air from an opened wine bottle and re-seals it with the help of a rubber stopper. Now they'll never be stuck drinking a stale glass of wine.
