Christmas Gift Exchange Ideas for Under $50

Trying to find a gift for under $50 that’s unisex, not too personal and appropriate for a Secret Santa gift exchange can be tough. Whether you’re exchanging gifts with your family, co-workers, or friends, I’ve rounded up my top 10 items that are thoughtful and useful for a Christmas gift exchange this season. All of the gifts I’ve selected below could end up in anyone’s hands and they’d be excited to receive it – trust me!

Christmas Gift Exchange Ideas


  1. How to be an Explorer of the World: Portable Life Museum – My sister brought this book to my family’s Christmas gift exchange and I was the one to receive it! I love it; it’s so creative! It has you look at the world, get in touch with your daily surroundings and think differently. With two young boys, I plan on taking this book with me on our daily adventures.
  2. Snowflake Snow Globe at Lemonceillo Home – This season I’m all about snow globes and this is the one you want to grab. $25 for a mini size and $95 for the large, Lemonceillo Home offers a beautiful selection of different style snow globes! Check them out in Inglewood or online. They sell luxury home decor and quality gifts. Perfect for someone that loves their home.
  3. DreamGear Universal Car Cup Smartphone Holder Mount – Flexible smartphone holder for your vehicle. Handy spot to keep your phone secure while in the car.
  4. Williams Sonoma Classic Hot Chocolate – Only the yummiest hot chocolate with real chocolate shavings that the whole family can enjoy!
  5. YETI Rambler Tumbler – Spill proof, dishwasher safe, keeps cold drinks icy cold or hot drinks nice and steamy. People will definitely be fighting over this one!!
  6. Squatty Potty Toilet Stool – This is the gift my husband submitted to my family’s Secret Santa gift exchange. Ha! We are big Shark Tank fans and he has been intrigued by this product for a while now. I personally have not used this product yet but only hear wonderful things about what great toilet posture it offers. With a house full of boys, I may need to grab some for us. 🙂
  7. Balloon Kit by Low Poly Crafts – For the DIY lover, this cool Canadian shop sells pre-scored and pre-cut kits of animals and objects that bring a room to life! They have such great designs, it’s hard to choose just one.
  8. Organika Activated Charcoal Powder – This product is versatile whether you want to use it for a face mask or as a teeth whitener; it’s a great natural way to eliminate toxins from the body.
  9. Scratch Map – Awesome gift for the traveler in the group who wants to keep record of all the places they’ve been.
  10. Dreamfarm Scizza – Genius. You’ll be tossing your standard pizza cutter aside once you start using these. They’re sharp and durable. Great for cutting flatbreads/pizzas, pancakes, and waffles too.
