All they have to do is simply attach the tool onto their brush before placing it in the bowl with washing liquid. Then, they can just press the button and let the gadget do the hard work.

For the friends who love spending their weekends in, especially with a warm cup of coffee in hand, why not surprise them with an espresso coffee maker?

Cooking is a hassle on its own, and it becomes worse upon seeing the mountain pile of pots, pans, and dishes you have to wash up afterwards. With a mini electric cooker, your secret Santee can dump all their ingredients into one pot, and whip up a simple meal in no time. Plus, if this friend has been living only on take-outs because they’re too afraid to burn the house down with their nonexistent cooking skills, then maybe this Secret Santa gift will slowly encourage them to cook more.

Improve your Secret Santee’s home entertainment system with a wireless display adapter. This will allow them to sync their phone or laptop to the big television screen, transforming movies and games into an immersive cinematic experience. It’s also great for their work from home setting if they don’t have a large desktop, as they won’t have to strain their eyes as much nor stare at their laptop screen for too long.

If they’ve got their phone with them, they’re probably playing Among Us right now. Now, as it is the time of giving, let’s put aside the many times they’ve wrongfully kicked you out for “acting sus” when they were, in fact, the impostor (this is why people have trust issues). Commemorate the fun times with these Among Us stickers to stick on the back of their phone case. Otherwise, if they still don’t have a protective cover for their wireless earbuds, then this Among Us case is one they’ll love.

Phone Grip/Pop Socket

Everyone has dropped their phones at least once, sometimes even more than that. A pop socket is a nifty little mobile accessory that your phone-attached friend will surely use. They’ll have a better grip over their phone and can double it as a makeshift stand to keep their phone upright when watching movies.

Its chic, minimalist design can blend into any home decor, so you won’t have to worry about a clash of prints.
