The holiday season is here and so the shopping begins. If you’re like me, you’re breaking your piggy bank right about now and using every penny you can find. It’s also a huge hassle figuring out what to buy for each person. To help keep your holiday spending low, I have come up with ten different gift ideas that are all under $10.
1. Fuzzy Socks
The holidays are all about getting cozy and what’s more cozy than fuzzy socks? Depending on who you’re shopping for, choose a pair that fits their personality.
2. Coffee Mug
Everyone drinks something hot, whether it be coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. There is an infinite variety of mugs out there that are cheap and you can find one that perfectly fits the person you’re shopping for. To supplement the mug, place a packet of hot cocoa inside before you wrap it.
3. Used Novel
For a very personal gift, go to a used-books store and pick out your favorite novel. Write something personal on the inside cover for an added touch!
4. Winter Hat
You can’t go wrong with a winter hat! You can go for a goofy monkey hat or a thick furry one, either way it’s always a big hit.
5. Homemade Cookies
If you can bake, bake a batch of holiday cookies, tie them up with a nice ribbon and give them out as gifts. They are a personal and tasty gift!
6. Scented Candle
This is a perfect gift for moms or any female. You can buy a large holiday candle to accommodate the person’s favorite scent.
7. Box of Chocolates
If you’re visiting someone for the Holidays, this is a great gift for the host. Who doesn’t like chocolate?
8. Gift Bag of Travel Minis
If you know someone who has travel plans coming up, get some travel-size goodies. Pick a variety of travel-size minis such as toothpaste, shampoo, soap, and lotion and throw them into a gift bag for your future traveler.
9. Gift Card
Pick up a $5 or $10 gift card to their favorite coffee shop, store, or restaurant. Sometimes the simplest and smallest gifts are the most appreciated.
10. Lend a Hand
Not all gifts have to be store-bought. You may know someone who needs help moving or your mom might need her driveway shoveled, either way doing someone a favor or lending a helping hand can be the best gift of all.
