Operation Secret Santa: Gift Giving Checklist

Operation Secret Santa: Gift Giving Checklist

Well, it’s that time of year again. Holiday party season—which means you’ll be invited to tons of different get-togethers and will need tons of gifts to celebrate. When it’s time to plan your Secret Santa gift, Southern Made has exactly what you need. Whether you’re gearing up for a work holiday happy hour or catching up with some old pals for an evening of cocktails and memories, bringing a good gift is key! Here are some of our recommendations to help make sure your get-together is a night to remember.

Swig Cocktail Club Drinkware


Coming up with a gift for a white elephant exchange can sometimes be a hassle. It comes down to finding something in budget but also will be well-liked by everyone at the party. Admit it—one of the best feelings is when your gift is the hit of the exchange! Well, we’ve got just the idea for you. Check out all of the different options from SwigLife’s drinkware collection! From mugs to tumblers, even wine cups, their entire set is the perfect choice for any gift exchange. The triple-insulated technology keeps cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm—it’s the perfect gift!

Corduroy Baseball Cap


If you’re getting together with some of your closest girls, choosing gifts is sometimes a lot easier! If you have an idea of everyone’s favorite styles, selecting a piece of clothing or an accessory as your gift may be the way to go. Say hello to the corduroy baseball cap! The low profile creates the perfect relaxed fit and the corduroy material makes it the ideal accessory for any casual outfit. Choose from tons of different colors and find the right gift. Heck, maybe even grab one for yourself! If corduroy isn’t necessarily your vibe, no worries! Check out our sister store, Southern Made Tees, for tons of other fabulous cap options!

Lounge Set & World’s Softest Socks


Is your friend group opting for a Secret Santa instead of an anonymous white elephant exchange? That means you have a very specific person that you’re buying for. If you’re at a loss and need new gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got the easy solution—a lounge set of course! Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a comfy cozy lounge set? And for the cherry on top, don’t forget to include a pair of the World’s Softest Socks (yes, that’s their name for a reason!). Our Barefoot Dreams three-piece lounge set is ideal for any Secret Santa. You’ll have your recipient jumping for joy when they open this!

Glass Hobnail Candle


We think this goes without saying, but one of the most reliable gifts to bring to a holiday gift exchange is a candle, of course! Who doesn’t love lighting a candle for the first time and smelling a lovely seasonal smell? These Hobnail Glass Candles come in three different scents and burn for up to 100 hours! The reusable glass jar is perfect for other uses once the candle has burned all the way through. Give it as a gift by itself or pair it with a few other small items. Either way, whoever chooses this gift will love what they receive! If you’re looking for a few other smaller items to pair with this candle, check out our gifts page for some inspo!

Christmas Tee


Christmas sweatshirts and tees are some of the best gifts to give in any exchange. Or heck, even to wear yourself. With tons of cute sayings, colors, and designs, the options are endless. We recommend taking a peek at our sister store Southern Made Tees for Christmas attire galore. Did we mention we even have matching sets for adults and kids?? You’re not going to want to miss these! Find one to give and find one to take home for yourself. With so many different options to choose from, you’ll have the whole party asking where they can get their own too!
