Larissa’s 10 Gifts Under $10

Gift cards and batteries are great, but we can do better than that! Here are my favorite stocking stuffers, all clocking in at $10 or less. You’re welcome.

 1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic: $7.49
This versatile lip stain is the just right shade and price. The color looks good on everyone, and you don’t even need a mirror to apply it!

2. Microplane: $9.95 
Zest a lemon, grate garlic, shred chocolate over a pie. Whatever your grating needs, this little guy does the trick with ease. Any cook on your list NEEDS this whether they know it or not.

3. LifeWay Women Devotions Audio CD Set: $5
A 2-disc audio CD set with 10(ish)-minute devotional segments from Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Kelly Minter, Lisa Harper, Angie Smith, Tammie Head, Angela Thomas, Vicki Courtney, and Jennifer Rothschild taken from women’s Bible studies and live events. Great for time in the car and/or hearing from some authors who might be new to you. Who couldn’t use a little inspiration during their daily routine?

4. 5 pack Flour Sack Kitchen Towels: $5.50
You wouldn’t think such a simple, thin kitchen towel could do so much. But these little gems are a constant on my oven handle. If you’re extra crafty you could even stitch the recipient’s initials in the corner.

5. Pencil Set: $6
No. 2 pencils with “Extra Sprinkles” and “Pink Unicorns” stamped on them will surely help even the scroggiest lady on your list ease back into the working world.

6. Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of color: $8.99
A light hair powder to give a little oomph when you’re on the go.

7. Listerine Strips: $3.69
Pop these after all those rich—sometimes garlicky—holiday meals.

8. Gold Stud Earrings: $9
Whether you’re into hearts, stars, or squares, these little gold posts make a perfect, dainty addition to any girly stocking.

9. Anthropologie Monogram Mug: $8
A friend gave this to me last year, and it has quickly become my favorite mug in the morning. And even at only $8, it’s still personalized!

10. Excederin Migraine: $5.99
It’s one of those things you always need but don’t want to buy for yourself. But it’s not as embarrassing as opening underwear or socks. And let’s be serious. It’s the holidays. You’re gonna need it.

So what are some of your favorite under $10 items? Tell us so we can all know!

    I didn’t know about number two. I’m intrigued. My mom used to give us a new kitchen utensil every year. She’s been gone for 12 years now but this reminded me I should continue the tradition with my daughter (who’s now in an apartment) and my sister-n-law (who used to get quite a kick out of the unique things my mom would find). Thanks for the idea!

      What an awesome tradition, Judi! I love that idea. Anyone who enjoys cooking (and cooking gadgets!) will love a Microplane. Plus it’s a versatile utensil–great for lots of different things around the kitchen. I have even found them at TJ Maxx sometimes, so check there if you have one near you. Merry Christmas!
