Best Secret Santa Gifts under $50 for Techies

Secret Santa is a gift exchange game that can be played among a group of friends, families, or co-workers. The rule of the game is very straight forward. All participants must enter their name in order to become someone else’s Secret Santa. Once you have drawn the name of the participant, then you (the Secret Santa) are responsible to buy a gift for that person you select. Most of the time, there is a spending limit for each Secret Santa to ensure no one is overspending on a gift.
