Secret Santa is one of my favorite traditions during the holiday season. I loved it as a kid when I was always gifted something cool like fruit-scented erasers or Lisa Frank puffy stickers. But as an adult, the tradition started to lose its luster. Maybe because everyone started giving things like coffee cups and gift cards. What's the fun in that? I get that people want to give something that's worth buying, but funny Secret Santa gifts are not hard to come by.
The best part of a Secret Santa gift is that you don't always have to know a lot about the person to find them a great gift. You just need something with a little functionality that makes them smile, and won't break the bank. You can find fun games they'll love playing with their family, accessories for their work desk that will make their day, and even fun little novelty items like breath spray that are still hilarious. Below are 19 funny Secret Santa gifts that are guaranteed to help spread the cheer to your family, friends, and co-workers. None of them are more than $25 and some are even less than five dollars, giving you every opportunity to find one you can afford and will be excited to give. Be the Secret Santa everyone wants to have.

We've all pulled that name that leaves us scrambling the day before the Christmas party, right? Look Human has you covered with this hilarious Secret Santa shirt ($20). Plus it's super soft and comfy. Who couldn't use a fun t-shirt?
2Basket Case Game
The basket case game ($13) will keep everyone entertained the rest of the night, so make sure to gift it to a good sport. (And play it while drunk. I imagine it's 10 times more hilarious.)
