It’s hard to know what to buy–and you don’t want to be the “gift card guy.” Here are ten fantastic secret santa gift ideas for all budgets that anybody would love to receive.

Click ‘n Dig Key Finder & Wallet Locator

We all know somebody who’s always looking for their keys or their wallet. With this handy set of RF wireless remote locators, those endless hours of searching can become a thing of the past! However, you might want to include a card or a note to show that you’re not saying someone is…shall we say, forgetful or disorganized. Moreover, at a cool $38.95 for a set of 6 wireless locators (including 3 key ring receivers and 3 flat ones), you might just want to pick up a set of your own.

Chemex 6-Cup Coffee Maker

Who doesn’t love coffee? If you drew a caffeine addict in your Secret Santa gift exchange, they’re going to love this no-frills coffee maker. Prized for the pure, pristine taste it delivers, Chemex is one of the hottest new brands in the beverage world. In fact, they claim they’ve found the “chemically correct” way to brew a cup of joe. We’re not scientists, but we’ll take their word for it. What’s more, it’s available at an affordable $41 (note, however, that Chemex does have their own coffee filters which are available separately).

Utter Nonsense Card Game

A great game is a gift that keeps on giving. By now, nearly everybody’s heard of Cards Against Humanity. Utter Nonsense is a similar party game, but it forces people to try out different accents and voices. Its unique format makes this a great choice for game lovers and performers alike. As an added bonus, you’ll probably get invited to a party and get to play the game yourself! Not bad for a gift that’s right around $20.

Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 8 Instant Camera

We’re living in a world that’s getting more and more digitized every year.

For about $50 (film is available separately), your gift-getter gets to bring back the retro fun of “shaking it like a Polaroid picture.” It’s a perfect gadget for a budding photographer or a social media junkie who wants to shake up their routine.
