Every year, we check off our holiday shopping lists for our family and friends but always seem to forget to grab those Secret Santa or White Elephant gifts until the last minute. From family festivities to office work parties, trying to think of a present that is fun, meets the spend limit, and is more thoughtful than the eleventh hour gift card can make you feel a little Scroogey. To save you from having a “Blue Christmas”, we put together a list of our Secret Santa and White Elephant gift ideas that are unique and will drum up that yuletide spirit.

Festive Full Wrap Tumblers

Holiday Wraps

Our new 2023 Holiday Full Wrap Tumbler Collection brings that merry magic to every sip.   Available in laser engraved and color print, these festive designs wrap all the way around so you can see it from any side. These straw tumblers from Simple Modern are made with double-wall vacuum insulated stainless steel so your drinks will stay ice cold or piping hot for hours. These fit into most cup holders, so you can show off your inner Kris Kringle anytime, anywhere. Plus you can easily stick a couple of extra surprise gifts like their favorite candy or other goodies.

Winter Wine Tumbler

Sipping on a robust red or sparkling rosé while taking in the snowy atmosphere is the ultimate winter wonderland aesthetic. Our selection of wine tumblers will keep your wine the right temperature for hours. Each one comes with a lid so every drop stays inside, even when you’re dancing to Christmas carols or telling your favorite Secret Santa stories. These tumblers also have a silicone bottom to keep them from slipping around or getting knocked over, which means more wine and less mess.

Custom Can and Bottle Holders

Whatever your favorite bubbly brew you like to cheers with, any of our can or bottle holders are a great gift idea. These coolers are great for beer, soda, seltzers, energy drinks or sparkling water. Not only are these a lot more universal, but whoever gets this as a gift can use it everyday. These are much more durable than your basic neoprene sleeves. Built with insulated stainless steel, they will want to bring this handy little holder with them everywhere. Add your Secret Santa’s giftee’s initials or put a boisterous holiday design that will get those jingle bells rocking. 

Frosty Freezable Magic

These unique freezable glasses from Host are a fun gift idea that will definitely catch everyone’s eye. We wouldn’t be surprised if one of these sets becomes the most stolen item at your next White Elephant event. The BPA-free double-wall plastic is injected with a freezable cooling gel and a built-in silicone band for a comfortable hold. You simply just put these upside down in the freezer two hours before popping open a bottle and your cup of Christmas cheer will stay bubbly and crisp. Laser engrave or color print a cheeky design or add a funny Christmas movie quote.

Good Tidings Glassware

You can’t go wrong with gifting glassware to upgrade their bar cart or drinkware collection. A playful shot glass, tasteful set of stemless glasses or a beer stein are great options to choose from. Laser engrave or color print any design like their name, some sassy elves, or even a sentimental photo! Rather than buying something at the store that anyone can pick up, create a personalized glass gift they will want to reach for every season.

Cheerful Car and Home Coasters

Our Holiday Car Coasters and Home Coasters are great for not only the lower budget gifting games but even as stocking stuffers too. The ceramic car coasters are color printed with bright designs that will be a fun reminder every time they hit the road. The laser engraved holiday designs on our slate coasters are great to bust out for happy hour when having guests over and add some of that festive flair to any living space.
