Ten Gifts Under $10

Posted on 12/08/2008

Finding the perfect gift can be a tough task—and finding it at a great price may seem near impossible. But we’ve been digging and discovered these ten great gift ideas for under $10.

December is for indulging which makes a Honolulu Cookie Company gift bag a great present. For $6.95 your loved one will receive a dozen Hawaiian-made cookies in exciting flavors like Pineapple Macadamia and Lilikoi Mango.

Picking between the green, blue and magenta felt pouch may be tough, but paying for it should be easy. Each one costs just $8. Hand-crafted by Nepalese women earning fair wages, these little pouches are perfect for stashing pens, coupons or pocket change. Besides the simple joy of finding the perfect gift, you can feel good knowing The Literacy Site will buy one children’s book for each pouch you purchase.

Serving Tray
Have a friend or family member that likes to entertain? Pick up the Bamboolicious Tray at Original Good. The brown version is on sale for $9.87. (Other colors cost $14.95.) The tray is not your ordinary discount store version—this one is made of hand-coiled bamboo and crafted by independent Vietnamese artisans in the Cat Dang Village. Not bad for $9.87!

Magazine Subscriptions
It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Magazine subscriptions are a great, affordable gift option—especially for those that seem to have everything. We found a subscription to Men’s Journal for the low, low cost of $5.95. And for the travel lovers on your list, here’s a year-long subscription to Budget Travel for just $5.95. At BestDealMagazines.com or DiscountMagazines.com there are plenty of frugal options.

Dog Treats
Pet owners love gifts that indulge their furry family members. Pick up a one-pound pack of doggie biscotti for just $9.99. This special treat is made with organic ingredients and (just in case of extreme hunger) they are safe for humans.

Wine Glasses
With these Ibiza wine glasses from CB2, your friend will be ready to ring in the New Year. The glasses feature Moroccan-inspired designs made with organic ink in fun shades of green, pink and blue. At just $1.95 each you can even throw in a bottle of wine—albeit an extremely cheap bottle of wine.

Give a splash of color mixed with a little luxury with these Kate Spade coasters. Each set comes with 8 snowflake coasters. You’ll get four of each design. They’re only $9 which we guess is probably the cheapest thing you’ll find from Kate Spade.

Media Case
Pretty much every one on your gift list has a camera, cell phone, MP3 players or PDA. That’s why this media case at CrateandBarrel.com is a great gift for so many people. It’s stretchable and sturdy and did we mention affordable? It’s just $9.95 (marked down from $14.95). Select between black or red.

It’s a hair clip. No wait—it’s a broach. Actually, this cream felt holiday birdie is both and super cute as well. For just $5.50, your giftee will have a special accessory that can’t be found in any big box chain.

The ultimate frugal gift is one made by your own two hands. Try baking special bread, making custom earrings or putting together a mini-scrapbook. The gift will be one-of-a-kind and certainly less than $10.
