he odd, the amusing, and the novel all are among the inexpensive gift ideas for that certain secret gift receiver.

Give a message Say what you really mean in sarcastic eloquence with vintagestyle signs for the home or office. Need something for “that” coworker? “Hey, I found your nose. It was up in my business.” Or, share philosophy: “Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and wine to accept the things I can’t.” The signs are hanging at Ambrosia on the Square in The Villages.

Take it easy Christmas in the Sunshine State is a little different, and these tree ornaments reflect beach life and retirement living: Santa reclining in a lounge chair outside the Surf Shop, or Villagers hitting the links in their favorite T-shirt attire. A variety of offbeat ornaments can be found at the Purple Pig in The Villages.

Try to keep up

Drink up!

Upscale Secret Santas know what today’s gifts are all about: technology. The Padrone CatEye gizmo helps cyclists from mountain bikers to street spinners keep track of speed, mileage, calorie consumption, and much more on the largest display available. This gift can be tracked down at Village Cycles in Wildwood.

Tumblers and mugs by Tervis are the perfect holiday gift, not only because they keep your hot chocolate hot and your iced tea iced, but also because you can personalize them. Designs include sports logos, Disney, sun and outdoors, kids’ favorites, emojis, and more. Stainless steel tumblers launched this year. Check out the Tervis store in Lady Lake.
