Christmas Gifts For Gift Exchange
Christmas gift ideas for gift exchange can be difficult to select, particularly when you only have a budget of $12!? That’s why we have put together this useful list of 10 of the best Christmas gifts for gift exchange. These small sparks of joy contain both practical and novel items that will be well received, so start scrolling!
1. Brush & Dustpan
The first item on our best Christmas gifts for gift exchange under $12 list is a widely applicable brush and dustpan set. The Full Circle mini set is perfect to keep on hand for whenever small messes arise, instead of having to take out that bulky vacuum cleaner. The set is made from recycled plastic, bamboo and rubber and available in 2 colors, sizes, and design options. Although small in stature, the set can be easily stored upright, while the adorable mini version can also be hung by the loop.
2. Ice Mold
A nice little Christmas gift idea for a gift exchange is an ice mold that produces interesting ice cube shapes. The Fred & Friends 3D cat ice mold is a two-part mold that recreates a large ice cat head. This cute, but durable mold is made from BPA free silicone, is dishwasher safe and will be the purrfect drinking companion no matter what the beverage. If a cat is a little on the tepid side for your taste, a skull and alien mold could be more to your liking! These molds create 4 ice cubes per freeze and feature an intricately detailed design.
3. Knife Sharpener
Nobody likes a blunt knife! The most universally applicable item on our Christmas gifts for gift exchange list is a knife sharpener. The KitchenIQ Edge Grip knife sharpener features a V-slot on the reverse side that enables positioning to prevent knives from scratching a countertop or damaging blades. The tool also features 2-stages of sharpening stones; a course slot and a fine slot. The coarse slot is perfect for sharpening extremely blunt knives that struggle to cut, while the fine slot is for polishing the blade and giving your knives that extra sharp finish. The KitchenIQ Edge Grip is small enough to be placed into your kitchen drawer and is even portable enough to be used on fishing trips. With this sharpening tool, there will be no need to figure out which direction to drag the blades unlike sharpening sticks and stones.
4. Toothbrush Holder
The cutest idea on our best Christmas gifts for gift exchange under $12 list is a charming toothbrush holder! The Kikkerland Hedgehog holder features an adorable design, with suction cups to adhere the case to mirrors, making it great for home or travel use. This is the perfect cheap gift idea for the young (or young at heart!) that will make brushing fun! If a hedgehog isn’t quite the creature you’re after, there are also Bear, Fox, Owl and Whale options, all of which are equally as cute!
5. Fork Spoon
What do you do when you need a fork and a spoon, but hate sporks? You use this half-fork, half-spoon.. well, in this case, you get it as a cheap Christmas gift for a gift exchange! The Humangear Gobites is a novel utensil made from extremely durable nylon. Available in 8 modern colors, the Gobites is dishwasher safe when placed on the top rack, is BPA and phthalate-free, and is FDA approved to be food safe. Unlike sporks, the Humangear Gobites can scrape the bottom and walls of containers, and has a spoon deep enough to even slurp soup.
