It’s gift-giving season! And if you have trouble coming up with decent ideas for your own family and loved ones, it can be next to impossible to pick a gift when you don’t know the recipient. And yet, Secret Santa get-togethers always end up being fun even when you don’t know who you’re gifting.

From gag gifts to boring gifts, there are always a few presents that get “accidentally” left behind, but there are also always one or two presents that are stolen multiple times and have people fighting over them. The latter gift is what everyone wants to bring, right?

Below, find 15 gift ideas that anyone and everyone will want to take home this year at a variety of price points. Good luck scoring one for yourself!
