Holiday Gift Guide 2016: Secret Santa Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: Secret Santa Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

Is your workplace doing one of those Secret Santa exchanges (it’s so hard to shop for those, unless you regift a candle like on SNL) or are you looking for stocking stuffers…like me? I found some items that work for either of both. Well the makeup set might be too large for a stocking, but it does make a perfect solution for a female coworker. Especially if you have a budget of under $20. Take a look at some of these awesome finds. Some are out-of-the-box and isn’t that the best kind? Especially if you can have them delivered to your doorstep.

Since brooches are back for the season, this one more than fits the bill. This beautiful beaded bouquet instantly upgrades any look.

2. Hamptons Salt Company Black Truffle Salt, $29.99

I have tried a lot of the flavors by Hamptons Salt Company and this one is by far my favorite. This black truffle salt has all the flavor of real black truffles (there are actual tiny pieces in it) for a fraction of the cost. Sprinkle it on eggs, pasta, potatoes, and even popcorn! It’s the perfect gift for a foodie.

3. Ulta 12 Day of Xmas, $18
