10 for $10: Bargain Christmas Gifts


10-for-10-nov-2016

It’s always a fun challenge to track down Christmas gift ideas for under $10 that actually still feel substantial. I’ve tried my best with the ideas below – as always, I’m not counting taxes and shipping (although I’ve tried to avoid exchange rate issues). Whether you’re on a Secret Santa / Yankee Swap budget, doing some early stocking stuffer browser, or just curious about what a tenner will get you, here are 10 Christmas gift ideas under $10 for 2016!

the-body-shop-mini-manicure-sets

Mini Hand and Nail Gift Sets – $10 each @ The Body Shop
Housed in a reusable (and easy to wrap) tin, each of these pint-sized sets comes with a nail file and luxe hand cream to keep those paws looking soft all winter long.

lver-eye-masks

Eye Masks – $8.95 each @ La Vie En Rose
Want visions of sugarplums to dance in your head? Slip on an animal eye mask in a fun shape like Rudolph, polar bears, or sleepy owls.

quo-lip-gloss-trio

Quo Lip Gloss Trio – $10 @ Shoppers Drug Mart
Wave this wand and you’ll have instantly kissable lips in no time. Featuring three kissable, neutral hues in the berry and pink family, you can gift this trio of lip products to one lucky lady, or split it up amongst friends for a fun little extra. At this price, you simply can’t go wrong!

survival-tool

Classic Survival Tool – $10 @ Indigo

dr-teals

Dr Teal’s 2-Piece Bath Sets – $7.99 each @ Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Loblaws, London Drugs and Pharmasave
Relaxation is just around the corner with these awesome sets. A friend of mine swears by Epsom salts and these little kits contain bags of them, along with a foaming bubble bath. You can choose between two scents, depending on what speed your giftee is going at. If they need to be perked up, pick festive Eucalyptus & Spearmint. If they need to chill out, opt for the super relaxing lavender kit.

barbie-fashionista-dolls

Barbie Fashionista Dolls – $9.97 each @ Toys “R” Us
When did Barbie get so affordable? Now you can nab one of a dozen plus styles of Barbie in one of her signature covetable outfits. With a wider range of skintones, hairstyles, and body types than ever before, there’s a Barbie to inspire any little girl.

poketo-notebooks

Poketo Double-Sided Notebooks – $10 each @ Drake General Store
A notebook is a timeless gift for a reason – whether someone uses it at the office, for making grocery lists, scribbling bright ideas, or doodling a lazy afternoon away, they’ve got plenty of function at a low price point. These quirky books are actually double-sided…curious to see what the other side looks like? Click here or here.

silicone-purse-lights

Silicone Purse Light – $5.50 @ Indigo
For the woman that truly has everything, this little gadget clips onto your purse straps to illuminate the insides of your cavernous bag, making it a snap to find your keys, phone, wallet – whatever! It’s also a cool idea for any backpack-toting family members.

playmobil-nhl-stanley-cupPlaymobil Stanley Cup with Referees – $7.97 @ Toys “R” Us
He may never get to hoist the cup himself – but with this cute playset anyone can have a Stanley Cup replica in their home. You can also get a Playmobil figure from his fave team!
