Office secret Santas are tricky whether you get your BFF, your boss, or your workplace nemesis. The perfect secret santa gift should be light-hearted, useful, fall at a reasonable price point, and ideally should be reflective of the recipient’s likes or hobbies. In other words, picking out the right gift is no small task. To help you with your search, we rounded up gifts under $25 for every type of co-worker.

6. KidsFunwares TriceraTACO Taco Holder

If your giftee has kids – or just eats like one in the office – they’ll appreciate this TriceraTaco taco holder. It solves the age-old taco-falling-over issue, and gets some laughs in the process.

7. Thor: Ragnarok Hulk 13-Inch Plush

The Hulk is decidedly less angry when he’s a 13-inch Beanie Baby plush toy. Give this to someone who’s a Marvel fan or use it to remind a friend that they need to relax every now and then instead of always being so angry. After all, green is not a good color on anyone.

9. National Etching Wine Glass

This wine glass features unique measurements just for the office wino. The writing is also etched instead of printed, so it feels a little more luxurious – even though the etching is anything but.

10. Final Touch Watermelon Keg

If your co-worker can’t wait till next summer, fuel their excitement with this watermelon keg tapping kit. Hollow out the fruit, attach the faucet, and fill with your favorite beverage for the best drink dispenser at the barbecue or picnic.
