    It's that time of year again, and I'm feeling very uncreative this year. I'm fine with what to buy family and loved ones, but the fun $20 gifts for co-workers and secret santa circles are stumping me.

    Maybe we can use this thread to help each other with some fun, useful, entertaining gift ideas in the $20 range.

    I've checked a bunch of those online gift guides, but they're not all that helpful, and personal recs are better. So if you have any great ideas, or want to show off some good stuff you've picked up - post up! It would also be helpful to post something for $20 that you'd love to receive, outside of gift cards.

    Happy shopping. :)
