Secret Christmas presents are tricky territory, but that’s why we’re here to help. Whether you’re doing a gift exchange with family or a group of friends, it can be nerve-wracking when you end up with the one person you’re not particularly close with. Also, Secret Santa gift purses usually have a price cap that limits your purchase even more. But fear not: these 25 gifts are all $50 or less, so don’t stress out.

Each of these gifts are generic enough that you could give to your cousin that you don’t know that well, but still thoughtful enough to give to your best friend. There’s something for plant lovers, beauty lovers and everything in between. Whether you’re looking for a kit to help them make their own hot sauce, a face mask kit to take home, or a cool high-tech notebook, here’s a gift that will make everyone smile. They’re so cute, you might even want to buy one for yourself if your imp hasn’t read our gifting guide. Read on to shop our top picks!
