HOLIDAY 2017
By Rebecca Carhart for Modern Muse

While Secret Santa gift exchanges are a fun holiday activity, shopping for one can be tricky — especially if you draw the name of someone you barely know. Thankfully, we've found some cool (and affordable) options that are sure to please anyone in your social circle. These are the $25-and-under gifts that everyone will love.

Yummy Smelling Candle

No one can resist a decadently scented candle, especially one that smells like a scrumptious pumpkin soufflé. Mouths will water once this Boulangerie candle ($18) from Anthropologie is lit. Each candle is handcrafted using all-natural, food-grade ingredients and will burn for 35 hours.

Party Starter

If you recently started a new job and aren't sure what to get your office Secret Santa, opt for gifting a fun game. If You Had To... ($16) from Urban Outfitters is an entertaining game where players choose between ridiculous "would you rather" scenarios. It's a great ice-breaker that will help you get to know your coworkers better — and will definitely get the party started.

Sleek Moscow Mule Mug

A Moscow Mule mug ($24) is a simple and sophisticated gift that almost everyone will love. This option by West Elm can also be personalized with a monogram, name or saying of your choice. If you really want to go the extra mile, buy your Secret Santa the ingredients needed to make the namesake drink as well.

Cute Cord Holder

Help someone get organized this holiday season with the stylish Wynne Cord Holder ($16) from Anthropologie. The leather organizer comes in a variety of colors and prints, and is as cute as it is functional. The versatile piece can also be used to store desk supplies or keep jewelry from getting tangled.

Kitschy Planter

Instead of a boring clay potted plant, gift someone a cute succulent to grow in this Half Moon Planter ($14) from Urban Outfitters. The metal material is easy to clean, while the celestial shape adds a whimsical touch. And if your friend doesn't have a green thumb, they can use the planter as a paperweight or a decor accent.
