Top 10s



Welcome to the last full week before Christmas! Typically, this week is full of office parties, gift exchanges and school Christmas parties. We LOVE having a reason to celebrate with people we adore! Sometimes, it can be hard to find that perfect gift that fits in your budget, or the rules of gift exchanges. To help out a bit, we've rounded up our favorite gifts for under $10. We hope you love them as much as we do!


Top Ten Gifts Under $10


1) Movie tickets- This is a great option for the 'tween or teen crowd and even grandparents.


2) Makeup, chapstick, lipgloss, lotion...- You can find make-up and lip kits for under $10 at several stores. For the guys in your life, try a combination of chapstick and a nice, neutral hand lotion. Something like this:


3) Gear or supplies- Find out what their hobbies are and load them up with supplies they are likely to consume. Oil paints, yarn, fishing gear, nice pens, memory sticks ...


4) Playdough or kinetic sand - For the little guys! Nothing better than a little sensory play.


5) Amazon, Apple, or Starbucks gift cards - Who wouldn't be excited by this?


6)Bath salts and oils- These are little treats that few moms allow themselves to have. Perfect for the ladies in your life! Looking to shop local? Check out Ladyburg in Downtown Fredericksburg!


7) Dollar Shave Club subscription or Birch Box subscription- So this one is a little out of the box (literally and figuratively) If you know your recipient well enough, these can make great gifts. Note: Birch Box is $10/ month Dollar Shave Club runs around $3/month


8) Gag gifts - These are great for stocking stuffers or if you're just looking to add a little something extra to a gift you already have. Stores like $5 Below are great places to look for funny, inexpensive items.


9)  Magazine subscription - It's the gift that keeps giving once a month for 12 months.


10) Small Lego sets - Another great gift for kids. While larger Lego sets can easily run you over $100, the smaller ones are usually only $9.99. You can also order individual lego people for around $10.
