Be the ultimate secret Santa with these gifts under $35 + last-minute gift guide

While the holiday season may not quite feel like years’ past, the spirit is still very much alive in a more virtual way. A festive tradition for centuries, secret Santa is a festive gift exchange we’ve all participated in for years. We may have grown up a bit, but the tradition is still one to be celebrated – and it lends itself nicely to the current global restrictions.  

You can still be the ultimate secret Santa despite the inability to gather in large groups – our top gifts for the makeup lover are under $35 and easy to deliver. Plus, their festive packaging means it won’t be a total miss in terms of Santa’s elves’ pro gift-wrapping abilities.  

If you’re not participating in a secret Santa swap but rather just left your shopping to the last minute (it’s ok – we don’t judge!), the below gifts are great for the eye makeup enthusiast – and also have Next Day Delivery. 

Shop our top 5 sets to make you the best secret Santa of this virtual celebration age.
