Secret Santa Gift Ideas for Women


Trading Secret Santa gifts is a fun holiday tradition. Choosing a gift for someone you don't know well---the work associate who seems to have everything or the lady in your church group you only see on Sundays---is difficult. Shopping for Secret Santa gifts can be daunting and stress-filled but it doesn't have to be. Once you have picked your recipient's name, jot down everything you know about her. Then ask others to give you clues to her likes and dislikes. Once you have a few ideas it's time to go shopping.


  • Theme the gift: A fragrant candle or bath soaps chosen from your local bed and bath store paired with a best-selling book become a "Relaxation for Her" gift. A gift card to a movie rental store and a package of microwave popcorn become a "Friday Night Movie Night" gift.

Coffee and Dessert

  • Purchase a gift card to her favorite coffee shop. Add pizazz to your gift by inserting the gift card into a coffee mug. Include a few cookies. Wrap everything in cellophane and you have a pretty package.


  • Everyone loves music. If you don't know who your recipient's favorite artist is, buy a popular holiday album or purchase a music gift card, so she can pick out her own music.


  • Avoid buying wine and spirits for your recipient if you do not know her well. No matter what gift you choose, be creative in your presentation. A pretty package is festive and fun, regardless of the contents.
