$10 Dirty Santa Gift Exchange Ideas

You’ve been invited to a Christmas party where there will be a $10 Dirty Santa Gift Exchange and you’re looking for the perfect gift. The MOST WANTED gift. The gift that is stolen so many times that it is frozen. After all, that’s what makes the Dirty Santa gift exchange so fun!

Although its name might suggest otherwise, the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange is a family-friendly game! It is called dirty because game participants steal gifts from each other in an attempt to end up with the best possible gift.

Gifts for Dirty Santa are typically something fun, new, unique, and in good taste.

Unlike the White Elephant gift exchange, Dirty Santa gifts are usually items the recipients will want and use.

Adjustable Cell Phone Stand

How many of you reach for the salt shaker to try to prop your phone up while you eat lunch?

This adjustable cell phone stand makes watching the latest TikTok videos less cumbersome, while you eat!

Milk Frother

It’s a whisk that allows you to froth milk for your coffee or hot chocolate. My daughter has one of these and she uses it quite often!

Popsockets Cell Phone Grip And Stand

This neat little gadget attaches to the back of your phone to create a grip. The BEST part is you can use it to tilt your phone while you’re sitting at the table to eat your lunch (only if no one is eating with you, that’d be rude).

No more using your mom’s glass pumpkin she made with her own two hands to prop up your phone … ahem …

This is such a simple little thing but so useful!

Cell Phone Battery Charger

We all could use a phone charger!

It’s just one of those things we never get around to buying.

Put it in a Dirty Santa mix and it’s sure to be a hit!

Fun Card Games

There are plenty of competitive, entertaining card games that are under $10. One of my personal favorites is Phase 10. Warning: dangerously fun but competitive. Play at your own risk.

Redneck Wine Glass

Who wouldn’t love this? It’s a jar-turned wine pop glass with a fancy stem and a lid! It’s just fun enough that it might be a Dirty Santa hit!

Hot Cocoa Set

Nothing says winter like hot cocoa. A cute hot cocoa set, with the mix, marshmallows, and candy canes, is the perfect gift.

Bag Clips

Every kitchen needs bag clips to keep food from getting stale.

Why not make them cute with these adorable little monsters?

Rock Painting

Rocks! Nothing is more fun than a craft night. Painting rocks and letting your creativity flow is a great way to spend any free time. You can even leave your painted rocks around town to bring joy to others.

Portable Keychain Screwdrivers

Let’s just say I would go for these keychain screwdrivers. I often find our regular screwdrivers … the ones that should be in the garage … in random kitchen drawers. My husband likes to keep them handy, in the kitchen. I like them in the garage. These portable screwdrivers would be the perfect compromise for the kitchen!

Coloring Book

Coloring books are extremely fun and relaxing! A great stress reliever too. This coloring book offers a bunch of fun animal designs!

Camouflage Hat With Light Under Bill

This was one of the gifts that was stolen so many times at our party last year, that it was frozen.

Flashlight Beanie Cap

If you’re not into the baseball hat style, this Flashlight Beanie Cap will do the trick!

Socket Set

Okay, so I just don’t get the appeal, but a socket set was popular last year too.

Magnetic Wristband

How handy would this wristband be when you’re working in the garage?

Knit cap

Is there a team that everyone loves?! An NFL hat would be a huge hit!

Manicure Set

A manicure set is one of those things that you never take the time to buy yourself but would love to have!

Burt’s Bees Gift Set

This super cute gift set has anything and everything Burt’s Bees! Anyone would love to have this set.

Throw Blanket

Throw Blankets seem to be a hit year after year. It seems everyone likes to snuggle up under a fuzzy blanket this time of year!

Mrs. Meyer’s Candle

Who doesn’t love a cute, good-smelling candle? This Mrs. Meyer’s candle also comes in a cute jar that’s reusable too!

Wool Dryer Balls

For the health-conscious partygoers, these wool dryer balls will be a hit. Not only do they help to reduce static electricity but they are good at fluffing too. Plus, they kind of resemble snowballs so a spontaneous indoor snowball fight might take place.

There you have it! I can’t guarantee you’ll be the life of the party, but these Dirty Santa Gift Ideas are sure to create some fuss!
