We’re less than one month down to Christmas! Hooray! 😀
“It’s all about giving, not receiving.”
Whether you’re hosting a Christmas party or playing the Secret Santa game, it’s better to start your Christmas shopping early. Shopping last minute isn’t a great idea, especially if everyone is scuffling and grabbing the same few items.

So start your Christmas shopping now! We have compiled 20 random, yet useful Christmas gifts below.
Note: The $20 budget is inclusive of product cost + delivery fees.
