When it comes to shopping for your Secret Santa, things can get a little confusing.
If you’re shopping for a coworker, you can’t be exactly sure what she likes, and if you’re shopping for your sister, your gift can be a bit more intimate.
Another factor that comes into play for Secret Santa gifts is price. You don’t want to buy your Secret Santa a $6 lipliner only to discover someone else spent $50 on a blazer.
No one wants to look like she skimped, but no one wants to break the bank.
When it comes to Secret Santa gifts, it’s best to stay under $20 and really consider whom you’re shopping for.
Make sure you’re choosing something that would work for that person.
All the special ladies in your life deserve a little something especial. Here's what to get them.
A gift for your coworker:

A Sephora gift card is perfect for a coworker you don’t know particularly well. Since you’re not sure what her favorite makeup products are, you can show her you appreciate her while still allowing her to choose her products based on her preferences.
A gift for your work-wife:

Your work wife is someone you spend a lot of time with, and so you know the kinds of things she likes. If you’re lucky enough to get paired with someone you know so well, you can choose something you know she’ll dig.
A lip stain is always a great choice, like this one from Revlon.
A gift for your sister:

Your sister is an easy buy because the two of you have grown up together. Try something cool, and a little more expensive, like a palette from Urban Decay. It’ll give her lots of different makeup options and still serves as a really genuine gift.
Besides, she’ll be so happy not to get another pair of black tights from your dad.
A gift for your mom:

Your mom is the most sentimental person in your family, so why not warm her heart off with a sweet mother-daughter charm bracelet?
She’ll love that you were so thoughtful, and she'll be even happier you’re showing her how much she means to you.
A gift your not-so-girly sister:

When your shopping for a sister who doesn’t have traditionally girly style, it can be tough to figure out exactly what she'd want. Luckily, a beanie never goes out of style and fits the look of almost every female.
This “Boss” one is super cool, and she’ll be happy to know you think she’s rad.
