Secret Santa Ideas that won’t Break the Bank – Gifts Under $20

Winter break is here, and it’s time to fill your schedule with as many Friendsmas parties as possible! Getting together with your squad is a great way to show some holiday cheer, but all those meet-ups mean you need presents that won’t break the bank. So, as one of our many gifts to you this season, we gathered our favorite Secret Santa ideas for $20 and under (that your friends will totally love) all in one place. We focus on your gift exchange, you focus on getting the perf holiday look.


So… it’s super cold—yay, winter! If you live in a chilly climate, there’s no doubt your friends could use some cold-weather accessories to keep warm and look cute. Depending on their style, pick ‘em up a super warm scarf, beanie or gloves that’ll finish all those winter ‘fits. (Plus, they’re much-needed assets for snowy playdates!)


If there’s one style we can’t get enough of, it’s great graphic tees. Luckily for you, we’ve got an ENDLESS collection—including a little something for everyone—to choose from! From music to TV shows, you’ll find a graphic tee that fits any aesthetic in no time. Your friends will appreciate the gift and wear it literally all the time—guaranteed. 


Perfumes and colognes make the perfect last-minute presents (since they really tie any look together), so check out our wide variety of sweet, floral, spiced and fresh fragrances. You’ll find so many options for every personality, but if you need help picking the perfect one—no worries. The CJ Collection—CJ Black, CJ Red and CJ White—is a best-seller, making them a go-to for the guys in your life. For the girls, we’re totally crushing on our limited edition me fragrance collection. Need a second opinion? See how much major babe and influencer, @_javierittaaa loves them by checking out her me fragrance unboxing video here.
