It's that time of the year! When you get to buy a gift for someone you may or may not know too well. Have no fear! I created a list of top 10 secret santa gifts that anyone would love under $25.
I am probably the worst caretaker of plants ever (ask the 100s of plants I've killed, RIP plants), but these succulents from IKEA are so easy to keep alive - even for me! They're super cheap and they come in an assortment of species. The perfect gift for an aspiring green thumb!
2. A good read
I love adding this one to my own wish list! Everyone has their own favourite book, and it gives you a chance to explore titles you may otherwise have ignored. If you're really unsure of what kind of book to buy, I added a few of my favourites below.
For the poet/feminist/all around cool person: The Sun and her Flower by Rupi Kaur
For the world changer: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
For the thriller-lover: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
For the drama-lover: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
For someone in need of inspiration: Option B by Sheryl Sandberg & Adam Grant
