    Secret Santa Gifts for a stranger

    The limit was $20. Do you think these are enough? Should I add a little something else?

    If you had to buy that bag alone it would be more than 20.00. I think she will love it. The little Santa is very cute .

    The bag makes it all!

    Thanks everyone. I decided to throw a tin of some homemade toffee in there. That should be enough.

    I think those will be fine. People really join those things to make friends, not to get a haul of loot. You've already put more time and energy into than most people will.

    I love that blue patchwork bag. That is worth way more than $20.00 to me. Nice gifts.

    Looks fine to me. The Santa is darling and the bag is very pretty. Topped off with homemade candy! That's quite a haul.

    It's a smaller version of the Mondo Bag by Quiltsmart. Except for time, it really is under $20 ;-)

    The Mondo bag is a great idea. I have 2 - and the pattern. Maybe I'll give one next year. I LOVE them. You might think about some little things - thread, needles, pins.

    She doesn't sew. That would have been easier ;-)

    Even at minimum wage, your time to make the bag is worth more than $20.
