Ahh, the white elephant gift exchange. The one where everyone buys a present and then gets to choose something random from the present pile (or steal someone else’s already-opened gift). You don’t know who you’re buying for — so you’ve got to select something universal and clever that’ll please the crowd. Not to mention the pressure that comes with wanting your present to be the standout pick. (We all know how crushing it is if no one wants to trade up for your gift.)

Good news: Any of these budget-friendly products can help cement your status as a gift-giver extraordinaire. From infused ice cubes and beautiful cactus candles to a swear-word filled coloring book, we rounded up some ideas you can’t go wrong with. Home run.

The trophy all your friends deserve…

When everyone on your A-team (or in your group chat/friend group/book club…) is a bad*ss, you can’t go wrong with this gift. At 6.5 inches, it’s short, but mighty. Good things come in small packages, right? ($24, Jenni Earle)
