Carrying on with this season’s Winter Warrior theme, I’ve picked out 10 gift ideas for a tenner or less that’ll help you survive the oh so cold weather we’re all currently suffering through (seriously, what is with this winter?)

Wigwam 40 Below SocksWigwam 40 Below Unisex Socks – $9 a pair @ MEC
Available in 4 shades, these wintery warm socks are made from wool, nylon and spandex.

Green Beaver Boreal Lip BalmApres-Ski Boreal Lip Balm – $4.99 @ Green Beaver
Whether you’re hurtling down the slopes or braving the winds on a walk to the office, your lips can easily end up chapped if you’re not careful. This natural lip balm nourishes lips with soothing Vitamin E and aloe.

Pearl Knit HeadbandPearlescent Bead Headwrap – $7.80 each @ Forever 21
A headband is a chic way to keep your coif from getting too mussed up while still keeping the bulk of your head and your ultra-sensitive ears covered up. These pearl-stitched options are super snuggly – and at this price you can afford to buy a few different mix & match accessories for each of your winter coats.

Grabber Hand WarmersGrabber Hand Warmers – $3.49 for a two-pack @ Canadian Tire
Standing outside for a parade? A charity fun run? A hunting expedition? Whatever the case may be, these handy thermal hand warmers will keep your paws from freezing – simply tuck them into your jacket pockets or mittens for all-day toastiness.

Kombi Women's Double Sided Fleece Neck WarmerKombi Women’s Double Sided Fleece Neck Warmer – $9.99 @ Cabela’s
I don’t know about you, but if my neck isn’t warm – I’m not warm. This double-sided, super soft fleece neck warmer is a fantastic base layer, no matter how many moments you plan to be exposed to the elements.

Rosebud SalveRosebud Salve – $8.50 @ Sephora
I know I’ve written about the Rosebud Perfume Co. before, but their Salve deserves some special attention for it’s multi-tasking properties that come in handy during the winter. Dab it on chapped lips, cracked or dry skin, or even to skin that’s suffering from a rash due to extreme dryness. It even works to soothe mild burns and diaper rash.

DAVIDsTEA Spice LoversSpice Lovers Gift Set – $9.50 @ DAVIDsTEA
Some teas just feel ‘right’ for certain seasons – such is the case with this trio of petite tins of spice-infused looseleaf tea. Warm up with a cup of Chocolate Chili Thai, Super Ginger or Cinnamon Rooibos Chai.

Animal Cable Knit Slipper SockAnimal Cable Knit Slipper Sock – $6.99 @ La Vie En Rose
The slipper sock is a glorious invention that keeps your tootsies not too hot and not too cold – perfect for padding around the house. These animal-inspired knit slipper socks are too adorable (and affordable) to pass up.

Lush Putty For Your HandsPutty For Your Hands Soap – $8.95 @ Lush
Do your hands ever get that dry, crinkly feeling after you wash them in the wintertime? This innovative soap doesn’t actually contain any ‘soap’ or foaming agents that can irritate those with sensitive skin. Loaded with ultra-nourishing ingredients like oats and marshmallow mucilage, it’s like moisturizing your mitts with every rinse.

Cable Knit Pompom HatCable Knit Pompom Hat – $10 @ Joe Fresh
Looking at this post as a whole I realize it’s quite well…drab in colour. Be psyched to slip on your winter gear with a bright colour pop, like this raspberry-hued cable knit toque complete with a fuzzy faux fur pompom. Cute and cheerful!
