Secret Santa Presents under $50

Twinkling fairy lights on every bush, lit up snowflakes lining Lancaster Avenue, Starbucks red cups serving peppermint mochas. It’s that time of year again, and with it comes an air of excitement, several spotify Christmas music playlists and a sense of confusion because everyone is asking you what you want and you can’t think of anything.

The list of items that follows will give you an idea of what to put on your wishlist or what to get for your friends whose lists are as ambiguous as yours.
