With the holidays approaching there are some gifts that are more challenging to get than others.

The events are most fun when there are a few items that people want to steal. However, with such a wide group of people, what inexpensive gift ideas are best?

    We live in such a fast world that I forgot that the holiday season is around the corner! Thank you for this reminder. Great to know there is such a wide variety of gifts you can give without damaging your pockets. At this price, you can afford to gift several people. At least for them to know you have them in mind.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Steve, it’s amazing how the gesture of a small, affordable gift can leave such a large impression on a person. As you point out, people like to know that you have them in mind. 🙂

  2. cathy says:

    Timing is perfect for these gifts. I am in the process now of deciding holiday gifts for my clients, but have a very limited budget. The gifts under $10 look so much more expensive and doesn’t label me as a cheapskate. The fact you took the time to separate them by category is a huge help, my thanks.

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks for sharing Cathy! I’m happy to hear that having these gift ideas grouped by type has helped to make your gift shopping easy!

  3. Page says:

    With Christmas right around the corner, this article is a great read!! It’s crazy to realize the great presents you can still purchase for under 10$. When it comes to Secret Santa at the office or home this is a great article for when the limit on the present is just 10$ In the past, it always seem to be the lower-priced gifts that people cherish the most. Thank you for sharing these wonderful finds!

  4. Danijel says:

    I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. A great choice as always, I already bought some of the products you recommended under $5 and now I also see some gifts I could prepare for my closest ones. Thanks for sharing it, I can’t wait to see more of gifts! Cheers, Daniel

  5. Anthony Hu says:

    Thank you for your post. It is a timely article. Soon is the party season. I know there are several parties we are going to have secret Santa. As usual, I do the purchases during Black Friday.

    Thanks to your suggestions, I have a strong list this year. It is going to be an easy shopping season for me. I find that Catch Phrase Game is nice. My grand son is 10 years old and this could be one of the perfect gift for him. Right now it is half price and I may buy it now, instead of waiting till Black Friday.

    It is kind of you spending time summarizing the information and sharing it with us.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Anthony, Shopping on Black Friday is a bit of a hassle but you can usually find some great deals if you are willing to navigate through the crowds. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season this year!!

  6. Bella says:

    How unimaginable it is to have a secret that any gift I would be giving out this Christmas period would be strictly a product from the selection up here. The options are just too massive and great. As massive as the list is, though it is running me down, I read evey bit of information on each gift and I know exactly what value they all have. Tha ks for being there with all these cost-saving ideas. Thumbs up to you

  7. Rose says:

    Yeah I did this best rewards program last year christmas and this is where i got my home gifts with a free shipping price wow! Isn’t  this amazing I dont belived with such small amount money I could got those kind of gifts then the Christmas was one of a kind for me and my family and also I have a friend who got travelling gifts  also she enjoyed it alot this platform it’s so nice to be on thanks for the post .

  8. Shifts says:

    Hi there. $10 seems like a little amount of money to get a gift of high quality, a gift that will be accepted and one that will be appreciated.

    Considering the game gifts under $10 with free Prime shipping, I really love the Catch Phrase Game. I have not used it before but from what I read I love it. Good for the brains. It’s such a perfect gift for 9 USD and 99 Cents.

    • Alyce says:

      That Catch Phrase games has a lot of positive reviews which makes me think it appeals to a wide variety of people. That is definitely a great deal on a gift!

  9. Rodarrick says:

    The idea of craft gifts make sense to me. Since craft would not be easily forgotten or let go due to the fact that get are not like any kind if disposables. They are well made and also very valuable to see here. Thank you so much for sharing all these here. I really appreciate this and also would love to get the zodiac signs craft to gift out. Thsnks

  10. JAX says:

    This is great! I am worried about what gifts I want to buy for my daughter. There are a lot of things here that I need. You have put a lot of links, which is really convenient to buy. The list is very rich and you must spend a lot of time to prepare it. Thank you very much!

  11. Son says:

    There’s so many different options for gifts it’s kind of hard to decide. Maybe instead of getting someone a single $10 gift I could get them 2 different things for $20. If you think about it that would be even better because usually people just get one thing, now they’re getting two. The scented candles and foot warmers are both interesting and my wife would like that, they were much cheaper than I expected. No wonder people shop on Amazon all the time. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Son, Amazon definitely makes it easy to buy gifts from them with their low prices and fast shipping (great for last minute shoppers!).

  12. Kara says:

    I am so incredibly happy that I came across your post today. I have always been a huge bargain Christmas shopper due to lack of funds. Well, this year, I have the funds to spend a little more but I am still wanting to be smart about it and not go overboard. So, I have been doing a lot of research on the best lesser-priced gift items and this was exactly what I needed!! I can’t wait to come back on payday and get my Christmas shopping completely wiped out!

    Thank you for taking the time to create this post, I am thankful you shared it!

  13. Luiz says:

    Wow, that is an amazing list, thanks a lot for preparing this!

    It helped me a lot on picking couple of choices not only for secret santa, or family xmas gifts, but even for myself! Stuff that I had in mind sometimes to buy but I always keep forgetting about them! 

    Some of the items listed I have, and I can tell you, they are AMAZING, like the glowy flash for selfies in the dark, so useful and awesome!

    Keep up the good work, I will keep reading them! 

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks so much Luiz – these items work great both as gifts for other people and as items that are an affordable way to treat yourself!

  14. John says:

    Oh, well, this is very good because I have a sister who wants to get some gifts to some of her students who would be graduating very soon but she doesn’t want to make any serious financial commitments. It will be very nice for her to see this posts with the cheap gift ideas that also come with prime delivery. Nice one!

  15. Igor says:

    Hi Alyce!

    Congrats! Very nice site and compilation of Amazon’s very affordable products. There are some that I like a lot. It is interesting to see that it is possible to get some really useful products for a very good price!

    Wish you much success with it.

    I think that the only issue could be the transportation and delivery cost for the overseas orders due to high delivery costs. However, the choice is there!

    Thanks for the info.

    Best regards,

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Igor, This list is focused on the US market, but with any luck you can find similar vendors and deals in your location as well. 

  16. Henderson says:

In my home, we have so much on our budget this end of the year and we have become so accustomed to getting gifts for people every year. You have given a range of gifts that will fit in our budget perfectly. I will very much like to make use of the information here to get the best cheap gifts. I will show this to the rest of the family. Thank you!

Getting something reasonable at a reasonable and cheap price is really a good idea, thank you for posting this article.

  18. KingAndrea says:

    It’s really true that limited cash can make it really difficult to decide what gifts to get doe our loved ones, but with this list that contains of about 63 best gifts under $10, it’ll be easy to choose a preferred gift and also be able to get it at a very pocket friendly price. This will be of immense help to me, its getting really close to Christmas and I’ll need to get gifts for my relatives, I guess I won’t spend much now. Thanks.

    • Alyce says:

      I happy to learn that you found some great cheap Christmas gift ideas in this post. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season!

  19. Stanley says:

    Yes, it is that time of the year. Exchanging gifts parties. I must say kudos for a fantastic lists and there are so many choices, you will find something here for sure. My choice is either something evergreen, meaning useful for everyone or has a novelty effect so it is a nice surprise. I like the foldable purse hook, the origami mind bender puzzle, double wall French press, Himalayan salt lamp and Tetris heat changing coffee mug. You can probably guess I am a coffee person…

  20. Christine says:

    I have to ask, what’s a white elephant gift exchange? I have never heard of that 😉 

    Folding purse hooks are a great gift idea, for me! I am paranoid about my purse in public places and I always keep it close to me. In a restaurant it is always on my lap. So, a purse hook would be a nice thing to have. And I can’t think of anything better for the winter than thick padded socks! And at such a great price!

    The gourmet gifts also look wonderful, I like the silicone tea infusers and the run cake. Perhaps I should pass on your site to y colleagues, and hope they get me some of these things for the Christmas party 😉 I have never seen a Himalayan salt lamp for under 10 dollars, so I’m really happy I found all these amazing deals on your website! Maybe I’ll get the Himalaya Salt lamp. The bag of reindeer farts cotton candy made me laugh, what a great idea! Kids would love that! And foot warming heated slippers … oh my, I’m going to bookmark your site, to take another look later on. 

    Awesome gift ideas!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Christine, Thanks for the bookmark. The “white elephant” party is just as described where people take turns selecting unopened gifts or stealing the opened gifts. It’s a fun game but requires everyone to bring a wrapped gift that is kind of generic in nature (not too feminine or masculine for instance). 

  21. Scott Hinkle says:

    Thank you for this great list of affordable gifts.

    I have to admit, I’m not a big spender during the holidays, not because I’m cheap but because I don’t buy much for people.  Call me busy, lazy, whatever; I just don’t do it.

    This list may have me gifting a bit more this year.  I already know about 4 people that can use the purse hangers and I’m loving the Tortuga cakes, although I’ll probably end up buying a couple just for me, LOL.

    My mother-in-law keeps taking my scissors so maybe I’ll get her a couple of pairs of the Fiskers scissors as a subtle hint.  The folding step-stool would be good for getting her in and out of our truck too.

    Thanks again for providing this list of practical and affordable gifts.


    • Alyce says:

      Hi Scott, I’m so glad to read that you found so many affordable gifts that will be perfect for your family and friends!

  22. Jannette says:

    This is a good list of gift ideas all under $10. The gifts listed can be stocking stuffers that are my favorite part of Christmas holiday and its fun. Kids think Christmas is about all the big presents under the tree when you can pack a stocking with more smaller gifts that are fun and excited. Hope you get potential shoppers looking for lower cost gifts this season.

  23. Travis says:

    I am so glad I came across this site! We have a white elephant party every year at work and I’m always stressing about what to get and stay within the budget. There are so many ideas here, I’m sure anybody could fund what they are looking for here. I am going to share this with my friends and family, I know I’m not the only one that struggles with gift giving ideas this time of year. Thank you for the help!
