If you have been to a Secret Santa gift exchange, you know that a lot of the time most givers go with a "gag gift" that someone unfortunately gets stuck with! Don't be the person who gives that gift. Here is a list of the top 10 gifts people actually want.

Of course it's no surprise what's at the top ...

  1. Alcohol
  2. Chocolate
  3. A gift card
  4. A book
  5. Candles
  6. Money. I suppose you can just stuff $25 in an envelope and be done with it, although I would not do this ... seems too impersonal to me.
  7. Candy. This means the sours and chewy stuff ... not just chocolate related. ((Hint: This gift pairs well with a $5 movie from Walmart and a cozy blanket.)
  8. Socks. I am assuming this is probably the fun thick cabin socks you can get at a Bass Pro Shop or a ranch-and-home type store.
  9. Perfume or cologne. Can you imagine with a gift cap at $20 how that would smell? Yucky! Maybe pass of this one!
  10. Bubble bath

Now you have the starting items to be the talk of the party, so don't be that guy who brings the gift absolutely no one wants!
