10 for $10: Sweethearts Edition

It’s that time again! Ten fantastic gift ideas for $10 or less, this month with a Valentine’s theme. Happy shopping!

Cupid Keychain

Cupid Key Chain – $5 @ Indigo
Before I get harassed for suggesting a key chain as a gift, please envision what could be attached to said key chain – perhaps a key to your place, or a key to a new car? Consider this faux leather pink keychain the ‘wrapping’ to an amazing Valentine’s memory if either of those are the case.

Jurlique Rose Love Balm

Jurlique Rose Love Balm – $9 @ eBeauty.ca
February may be the month for snuggles and kisses, but it’s also high time for dry, cracked skin. Nourish every inch that needs a little moisturizing – from your elbows to your lips – with this uber-soothing balm.

Secret Ingredient Spoon

Secret Ingredient Spoon – $9.99 @ ModCloth
The way to a man’s heart is supposedly through his stomach. Why not whip up a batch of his favourite cookies or cook a romantic dinner for two using this way-cute wooden spoon?

LO VE Earrings

Floral Love Studs – $4.80 @ Forever 21
Showcase what you’ve got on the brain by positioning one of these pretty floral studs on either ear (also available in black). A cute choice for your best gal pal that’s flying solo this Valentine’s Day.

The Body Shop Chocomania Soap

Chocomania Soap – $5 @ The Body Shop
 The Body Shop launched their wildly popular Chocomania fragrance just in time for Valentine’s last year, and this year the collection has been given a luxe new look, like this candy-wrapped bar of exfoliating soap.

Valentine's Day Kabob

Valentine’s Day Kabobs – $4.99 each @ Laura Secord
Take it from me – kids don’t really appreciate those cream-filled chocolates and expensive truffles anyway. Give them a sweet and affordable treat instead, with these stacked-to-the-rafters candy kabobs.

Vintage Minnie Mouse OPI Collection

OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection – $9.95 each @ salons nationwide
The original Disney sweetheart, Minnie Mouse, was the muse for this line of uber-girly polishes from OPI. With four flirty shades – including a chunky heart glitter – this is a must-have for any nail buff.

Cupid Crunch

Cupid Crunch – $9.99 @ South Bend Chocolate Company
Milk-chocolate drizzled caramel corn and dried Michigan cherries? Sounds like a lip-smacking alternative to a box of treats to me. Great for a family or girls night in come Cupid’s Day.

I Love You Cards Sarah Phelps Creative

Valentine’s Cards – $5.13 each @ Sarah Phelps Creative
You might not be a greeting card writer, but surely you can think of something sweet to say about your nearest and dearest. These handmade-in-Canada cards are truly one-of-a-kind, just like your love!

Wilton® Kitchen Favorites 4'' Mini Heart Springform Pan

Wilton Kitchen Favorites 4” Mini Heart Springform Pan – $8.99 @ Sears
Bake up a two-serving heart-shaped cupcake for a sweet treat to end your evening with this pint-sized springform pan from Wilton. Another fun idea? Gift the empty pans to your kids in the morning, and have all the fixins’ to customize their own cupcakes for dessert.

    Love the Cupid Crunch, but the OPi polish with the heart shaped sparkles is a close second, oh wait maybe it should be first. After all pretty nails don’t have any calories, lol.
