Anyone have any recommendations for my Secret Santa gift that must be under $15, unisex & for an adult? Just got invited to a Christmas eve party. The only gift I can think of is a compact disc (just pick a popular band/artist).

Help......need more ideas

How about a coffee mug or travel coffee mug and a bag of coffee, like Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. You can always get a gift card to a store or restaurant. I can't think of anything else at the moment. Hope this helps.

Anyone else still use a disposible camera once in a while?

Something for the home office -- a pair of scissors, a magnifying glass....?

I've done a lot of these. Candy and food are always popular, especially nuts or chocolate covered nuts or pretzels. Flashlights are too. Anything from Starbucks goes over well with people. We usually split women and men, then you can do anything snowman related (in my experience this is always a winner with women) or a candle.

Unisex AND under a dollar amount? I know it can be done, but the pressure of these kinds of parameters always puts me in a tizzy, and I usually draw a horrible blank. A gift card is an obvious fail safe, but, well, it is so uninspired.

I will watch this thread for ideas. In the mean time, I wish you luck.

Oh my; how positively lovely!

A big tin of butter cookies sounds like a winner too.

How about a nice book? I love to browse the clearance section of the book stores - there are so many interesting and unusual books.

I'd do a gift card...they are always a favorite when we play Dirty Santa at my work. Just put it in a big bag so no one knows that its a gift card {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Cracker Barrell restaurants have the most unusual gifts in their stores. I love browsing there and have purchased some great things, let alone the old fashioned candy.

There's a great gift shop in Jackson, TN called Casey Jones Restaurant and County Store. I can't make any specific suggestion for a gift but if you are near this type of store, go there and get your ideas. Great places.
