    Thorntons chocs

    Christmas socks
    Mini alcohol bottles
    Gloves

    $5 is hard, you can't really get much for that...
    Hmm. Maybe a nice set of pens; I know I personally really like my nice pens that write well, not the cheap crap they offer at work. I buy my own and take them.
    Chocolates
    Hot chocolate packets in a nice mug
    Chocolate covered pretzels or chocolate covered oreos, etc in a holiday tin/box
    Christmas socks/jewelry
    Small Bath and Body works items, like hand sanitizers,purse sized lotions, etc

    depends what kind of people you work with personality wise, i used to work with alot of funny people so something dirty or childish was usually bought, last secret santa i did i bought them a space hopper.... space hoppers are awesome :thumbup:

    if you dont work with the jokey funny type you can buy a small gift set bath, perfume etc.

    one year I bought someone a nice goats cheese and cracker set because the girl was obsessed with goats cheese lol she absolutly loved it!

    We've got £10-15 at our work. Ours is a mix of men and women which makes it harder if you get the opposite sex I think :lol: I've also only worked there since August so it was super hard for me this year! Luckily I did get a woman :lol:
    I've got mine a box of thorntons chocolates, and a few Yankee Candle Tarts as I know she likes them.

    We do a lucky dip Secret Santa at work. Everyone brings in a wrapped gift worth around £5 and then we each pull one out of the sack. It's easier, because we're all women! This year I've bought a sweetie house from Boots, in the 3-for2! Last year I gifted a bath bomb set and received a nice box of biscuits.
