"Okay, so you're feeling flush. There's someone you really want to impress. You're hoping they'll sleuth out your identity. You give them Aesop. Because really, who doesn't love?"—April Long, Beauty Director

"Unique—and not overly pricey— jewelry never fails to make a great Secret Santa gift, especially if your Kris Kringle wouldn't normally splash out on a statement piece. If you're sure they have their ears pierced, Bonito's ear crawlers are gorgeous and reasonably priced. But even better: purchases with them not only helps support local artisans and craftsmen in Bali, but also helps funds backpacks with school supplies for children in need worldwide. What could be better?"—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor

Peony & Blush Suede Home Candle
Jo Malone London bloomingdales.com
$67.00

"Gifting a candle isn't the most original idea, but I’d be thrilled to receive this beautiful Jo Malone candle in my favorite scent from my Secret Santa! In my opinion, you can never have too many luxurious candles."—Maggie Maloney, Associate Digital Editor

"Cutting down on single use plastics is a huge goal of mine and what could be better than helping someone else do the same? These cups are so useful—from coffee on the go to saving a plastic cup when you need a quick drink of water. I keep one in my bag at all times."—Elizabeth Angell, Digital Director

Agate Cheese Board

Anthropologie anthropologie.com
$78.00

"When it comes to Secret Santa, I'm all about gifts that work for everyone. See: this cheese board, which has an elegant yet universal style that will go with any decor and can be used as intended for party hosting, or just as a pretty tray on a vanity or side table (the fact that it looks more expensive than it is doesn't hurt either)."Lauren Hubbard, Contributor

Guatemala San Sebastian
Peet's peets.com
$17.95

"Honestly, I hate Secret Santa. Who wants to spend $20 to receive a gift you will never use in front of your coworkers? That said, my go-to is a pound of really nice coffee. It's within the money limit and everyone either loves coffee or knows someone who does. Nailed it."—Olivia Martin, Style & Interiors Writer

Lover Rubber Masks

$12.00

"Everyone has skin, and all who have skin would benefit from keeping it hydrated. (Lest you think only one gender would appreciate a face mask, let me assure you that my boyfriend loves them more than I do.) Plus, this two-step mask kit will do more than get the job done—it'll make your gift recipient feel like they've spoiled themselves, without spending a dime."Chloe Foussianes, News Writer

Gold Dumpling Christmas Ornament
Smoko urbanoutfitters.com
$5.00

"Last year while decorating my family Christmas tree, I had a thought: this amazing collection of ornaments did not come together overnight. Second thought: when I put up my own tree one year, what on earth will I hang from it? For that reason, I’ve decided that an adorable ornament makes the perfect Secret Santa gift, as it will likely become a part of the time capsule that is the recipient’s Christmas tree decorating for years to come. This golden dumpling option is irresistibly cute with a touch of glitz."—Lucia Tonelli, Editorial Assistant, ELLEDecor.com
