In an ideal world, you have an endless supply of money and can shower everyone in your life with presents without considering the price tag. But in this world, with rent, utilities, car payments and more, you have a pretty firm budget for your holiday shopping. Whether you’re trying to find a sweet but affordable gift for your bestie or need something small but thoughtful to give your new brother-in-law, these gifts under $10 will show you care without breaking the bank.
The key for scoring a sweet present for under $10 is keeping it simple, but elevated. Think of things they wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves, but would really love to have (like a cool mug in an interesting shape, a candle in a dark glass jar or a pair of fuzzy criss-cross slippers). You aren’t looking to give someone a new all-weather winter coat or a set of linen sheets, but you could totally find a marble salt bowl or a travel-size leather journal that your friend or family member will cherish.
To make your online shopping even easier, we’ve rounded up the best bougie-looking presents under $10 to give this holiday season.
