We all love the idea of the Secret Santa gift exchange — until we get a gift that’s less than impressive or even creative. (Yes, we’ve all had a fair share of bad secret santa gift. Cough.Vouchers.Cough) Here we’ve rounded up some of the best gifts that won’t break the bank. It’s time to say goodbye to random, lazy gifts and hello to great gifts that you’d actually want to receive.
#1: Tarte Natural Artistry Faves Colour Set , $36, Sephora
We love that you can create a full look with this set. Consisting of a travel-sized highlighter, contour, mascara and a long-wearing lipstick — it’s a steal.
#2: Crate & Barrel Scented Candle, $19.95
This soy-candle comes with a fresh and timeless scent that features notes of mint and linen.
#3: Plastic iphone case, $27, Topshop
We’re sure that any animal lover would adore this uber cute pug printed phone case.
#4: Glass earrings, $29.90, Zara
We’d gift this one to a fashion fiend — because you can never have too many statement accessories.
#5: Cotton socks, $17.95, H&M
Who could say no to another cozy pair of socks? This one comes in a cute Christmas-themed print that’ll leave you feeling extra festive.
#6: Senteurs D'orient mint tea soap leaves, US$34.06 (S$45.80), www.net-a-porter.com
This handmade soap comes in small leaves that are perfect for one-time use. Cop this for the traveller in your life.
#7: Slip silk eyemask, US$34.06 (S$45.80), www.net-a-porter.com
Made with the highest grade long fibre mulberry silk, this eye mask will take beauty sleep to the next level.
#8: Balmain gold-plated tail comb, $46, www.selfridges.com
This fancy piece from Balmain looks almost better as a prop than an actual comb.
#9: Glass box, $49.90, Kikki.k
This clear box would make a great place to store makeup or to display jewellery and keepsakes. We’re digging the chic gold-plated accents on it.
