Holiday 2019: Secret Santa Gifts Under $15 That Teens Will Love

Even though I try to start my shopping early, inevitably, I’m trolling the aisles of Target on December 24th, looking for Secret Santa gifts, stocking stuffers and the last-minute presents that I know my teens would love (read: the gifts I didn’t know they wanted until they said something on December 23.)

All of these items are under $15, which means you can stock up so that when your son or daughter comes home, telling you at the last minute that they need a gift, you’ll be the cool mom with one you already have in house.

Note: We receive compensation from purchases made through some of these links – thanks!
