Secret Santa Gift Ideas Under £20 to Please Even the Fussiest People

Thoughtful gifting on a budget.

We’re edging closer and closer to Christmas. You know what that means  — Secret Santa present swaps!

I know it can be daunting. I’ve been known to leave mine until the day before, which by the way I don’t recommend doing.

It’s particularly stressful when you have a price limit. Sure, it means you don’t spend too much, but it basically suggests your gift needs to meet the limit.

It’s less than three weeks now until Christmas, but before you lose hope, know that you can definitely turn things around with a little bit of planning.

You can try to zero in on a theme for your gift. Self-care is something we all need, so beauty products are always a foolproof idea.

Or you could try to keep it simple and think of things that you’d love to buy for yourself – but probably wouldn’t – within the budget.

I say probably wouldn’t, not because these gifts aren’t dreamy. But as we’re always encouraged to save our pennies and not spend on frivolous items, sometimes we don’t realise how much we’d actually appreciate some items – such as candles, coasters or yearly planners.

Need more ideas? Here are the rest of my picks for the best Christmas gifts for your Secret Santa under £20.
