Secret Santa gift ideas
If you've ever participated in a Secret Santa gift exchange, you'll know that the most difficult part is deciding what to buy! The process can get a little tricky, especially if you don't know who will end up receiving the gift. We've put together a few easy ideas, which are sure to please just about anyone!
Mugs for a good cause
These whimsical porcelain mugs are not only practical and fun, but they also help support a great cause. Each of these seven mugs represents a different charity - the ASPCA®, Architecture for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Teach for America, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, NRDC and Heifer International® - and 50% of the sale price of each will be donated to that organization. It's a great way to purchase something anybody can make good use of while also giving back. West Elm, $10.74.
Who doesn't enjoy a little peppermint at this time of year? These handcrafted peppermint candy squares are filled with bittersweet chocolate and make the perfect treat for the holiday season. We also love that you can repurpose the glass jar and fill it with pretty cuts of pasta or flavoured sugar when you have finished the candy - it will make a pretty addition to a kitchen countertop! Williams Sonoma, $24 to $42.
