For the Gadget Lover: Geekey Multi Tool
Never go without a screwdriver—or a ruler or a wire stripper—again with this key-shaped multi-tool. It functions like 16 tools in one, including a bottle opener to celebrate a job well done. Plus, it has a pretty good grip to it, so it’s easy on the hands. Stash one in the car or carry it while camping.
For the Coffee or Tea Drinker: Yeti Rambler
Yeti’s 20-oz. double-wall vacuum insulated tumbler is one of the most popular gifts season after season. And why wouldn’t it be? It keeps hot drinks hot and cool drinks ice cold for hours so you’re never coming back to a lukewarm beverage.
For the Mixologist: Napkins & Cocktails Kit
Two women-owned businesses—Avec and Atelier Saucier—teamed up to create a beautifully packaged gift box for cocktail enthusiasts. Each box contains four cans of low-sugar mixers, a set of embroidered cocktail napkins, festive garnishes and a recipe card. Cheers!
For the Tech Enthusiast: Tile Mate
We all know that person who always needs a little extra time to find their keys. Maybe it’s you! That’s a thing of the past with the Tile Mate. Just attach it to your keys, phone, shopping bags, water bottle or anything else that’s easy to lose. To find it, just check the Tile app or ask whatever smart assistant it’s connected to, and you’ll know instantly where it is.
For the Outdoorsy Type: The Bug Bite Thing
This pocket-sized bug bite treatment tool, which made a splash on Shark Tank and now has more than 42,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, is one of our favorite Secret Santa gifts for outdoor enthusiasts. How do you use it? Simply place the tool over a bug bite, pull up on its handles until you feel suction and then push down on them to release the product.
For the Artistic Minded: Slobproof Paint Pen
Slobproof Paint Pens are perfect Secret Santa gifts for the DIY painter on your list. Give them an easy way to touch up nicks and dings on their walls, or anything else they’ve painted, with a few strokes.
No need to hassle with opening an old paint can that might be dried out. Just load the pen with matching paint and snap on the cap. Later, when you’ve got a ding to touch up, give the pen a few shakes and go to it.
For Winter Warriors: Carhartt Knit Beanie
Give the gift of warmth with the ever-popular Carhartt beanie. The knit fabric keeps the chill off the ol’ noggin for anyone outside shoveling the driveway or just looking cool on the city streets. It’s available in 14 colors to suit any style.
For the Grill Master: Cuisinart 13-Piece Wood Handle Tool Set
Everyone who cooks outside needs a quality set of grill tools, whether they’re replacing an existing set or looking for a backup to take on a camping trip. This durable grill set is perfect for pros or aspiring pit masters.
For Those With a Sweet Tooth: Yuletide Bakery Box
Who doesn’t love dessert? The Yuletide Bakery Box comes with a sweet assortment of brownies and cookies, including fan-favorites flavors like snickerdoodle, chocolate truffle and oatmeal vanilla. It also features a pair of artfully decorated holiday treats that are *almost* too pretty to eat.
For the New Home Owner: Eton Blackout Buddy
Don’t get caught in the dark again. The Blackout Buddy gives you an emergency LED flashlight, blackout alert and nightlight all in one convenient package. You’ll appreciate it the next time an ice storm blows through and the power goes out. It provides four hours of battery life, and lights up automatically during a power outage.
For the Sustainable Shopper: BeeGreen Reusable Grocery Bags
Plastic bags are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Besides, they’re a hassle to deal with once you get them home and unpack the groceries. So kick the habit with these BeGreen Reusable Grocery Bags.
The sturdy bags come in a set of six and are available in several fun colors and prints. Plus, they’re roughly the same size and height as a tall paper grocery bag, so they hold plenty.
For the Tech Savvy: SnapPower USB Compatible Cover Plate
Turn any outlet into a USB charging station with this handy cover plate. It keeps your phone, tablet or other electronic devices powered up, while leaving the plugs free. Like any cover plate, it’s easy to install, even for the novice DIYer. Just shut down the power, unscrew the old plate and screw on the new one.
