searching for a last-minute secret santa gift? you’ve come to the right place.
this post will offer seven different do-it-yourself ideas that are super cute and affordable, and range from very personal to i-barely-know-you-but-here’s-a-cute-gift. whether you get a random person that you barely know, or one of your closest friends, there’s something for everyone on this list!
note: some of these are more of a joke than a gift, so if that’s what you’re looking for, go for it!
1. instant hot chocolate
mm, i love hot chocolate and one trending gift these days is instant hot chocolate on a spoon/stick. how easy is that? even if you don’t have a gift for culinary things, anyone can figure this one out.
pouring some melted chocolate into an ice cube tray and topping it with mini marshmallows is all that it really is, so it’s not that much work at all!

2. peppermint bowls
a super easy gift that just takes a little melting in the oven and melding. it’s super cute and you can fill it up with all different candies.

3. sharpie mugs
my personal favorite — a decorated mug with oil-based sharpies (you can find them at any crafts store) with a personalized message.
these are too cute and there are so many different things you can do with it:))

4. ‘open when’ envelopes
this is a great secret santa gift if its for someone you know really well, and you’re willing to put in a little effort for this gift.
its a very personal and thoughtful gift that only requires a few sheets of paper and some envelopes, and its really the thought that counts.
compile a stack of envelopes with letter inside, starting with the phrase: “open when…”
for instance, open when you’re having an awful day. or: open when you’re super stressed. it’s a way to make the person feel loved and appreciated so its a really thoughtful gift.
5. snowman kisses
in a rush? try this super easy gift:
these are basically tic-tacs that you decorate with a piece of paper, to make them “snowman kisses”. it’ll take a few minutes, nothing more.
if you want it to be a little fancier, make a small case just like the one above.

these secret santa ideas are good for anything, even just holiday gifts in general, and i really hope you try them out!
