Day 7: Secret Santa Gift Ideas | Blogmas

I don't know about you but I always find buying secret santa gifts to be harder than buying any other gift at Christmas time. Typically, secret santa happens somewhere like work, or school, or with those random relatives you hardly know. It's hard to balance buying a cool gift for someone you barely know with the money side of it- you don't want to be cheap but you don't want to spend a fortune either. To help combat this stressful gifting process, I have put together a list of three secret santa gift ideas that are affordable, easy to put together, and appropriate for whomever you're gifting to!
1. Cook Book & Recipe Cards
I feel like you can never go wrong with a good cook book- everyone eats! The healthy and easy recipes in Jamie's Everyday Superfood make it a great recipe book to gift to anyone- from the fitspo in your life to the kitchen newbie, everyone can get something out of this. Paired with some cute recipe cards that you can print out on card stock yourself using this template and maybe a goodie bag of holiday sweets, this gift would be great for anyone!
2. Hot Drink Kit
There's so many places that do this up for you now a days, from Starbucks to Wal-Mart you can get a hot drink gift kit for relatively low prices. You also always have the option to create your own! Throw together a DIY sharpie mug, some homemade hot chocolate mix, and some bits and bobs to go along with it like candy canes, chocolate, marshmallows, etc. and you have a perfect gift for any secret santa recipient!
3. Cozy Night In Basket
For this last idea, get a nice cozy blanket as the main gift. Putting this in a little basket with a classic holiday movie, some snacks, or anything else you can think of makes a cute little gift. It's the perfect arsenal to create the perfect cozy night in! Being the holiday season, who wouldn't want this?

I hope these secret santa gift ideas help some of you and make the process a little easier. Which idea is your favourite/would you like to receive? Any other ideas? Leave a comment and let me know!
