Gift Guide: Secret Santa Gifts under $25 and $50

Secret Santa gift exchanges are super fun - and I always look forward to the one my workplace puts together. There is usually a strict budget limit which can overwhelm some people. Because I love shopping for stocking stuffers and 'extras' - I think I have a strange talent for picking out awesome secret santa presents! It's always a good idea to get an idea of your recipient's interests (in a sneaky way of course) but if you are totally stuck, I've rounded up some really fun gifts under $25 and $50. 
Some of the gifts are super inexpensive, so you could always pair a few up and make a little basket. I know I'd love to receive any of these gifts - so I help this helps!

A Fun Holiday Look!

I'm not sure what it is - but something about the Holidays makes me want to get dressed up every day. I've been drawn to sparkly dresses, luxe fabrics and fun skirts like the one I'm wearing today. I love the way this outfit looks - and I'll definitely wear it at least once this Holiday season. 



Velvet is very in right now and I understand why. This camisole is very light but appears dressy when paired with the right pieces. It comes in 4 colours and I bought them all!


I love the shape and texture of the skirt. It reminds me of ribbon - which is definitely appropriate for Christmas.




'Tis the season for glitter! I actually bought this sparkly clutch from Bath and Body Works a few years ago! It's held up pretty well over the years and adds an extra 'pop' to the outfit.
