It's happened to all of us ... we decide to participate in the office Secret Santa game and we draw "Sam from accounting," which is fine, except we've only met Sam from accounting once when we had a question about our paycheck. Last year. So what kind of Secret Santa gift is Sam going to be into? You can't go wrong with a Lotto Ticket Wreath! Lotto Tickets are the gift that gives more; not only is the thrill of the reveal exciting, so is any kind of win! So put your worries to rest and grab some sparkly cardstock, Lotto Tickets and Aleene's Instant Tacky Adhesive Dots and your Secret Santa gift dilemma is SOLVED. 

Secret Santa gifts are popular in a lot of work places around the holiday season, and even in some families. While the idea of Secret Santa is fun, it can also be a little challenging if you don't really know the person whose name you drew, on top of having a price restriction. What can you buy for super cheap that's still super cool? These mini wine bottles covered in glitter for gift wrap are festive and an affordable Secret Santa gift idea that most people will definitely appreciate receiving. So get out your Aleene's Original Tacky Glue for this easy project you can make in minutes!

Looking for Secret Santa gifts for coworkers or family that stay on budget but are actually something that people will like?

So easy and affordable to DIY, use Aleene's Instant Tacky Dots with different kinds of tea for a creative Secret Santa gift idea that can be enjoyed all season long.

Although the holidays are often fondly referred to as "the most wonderful time of the year," they can also be the most expensive time of the year!
