Holiday 2009 Gift Guide: Gifts Under $10

I must admit that finding fun gifts to give (or receive) under $10 (and mind you, I was strict about it being under $10… so nothing that was even $10 would do!), but I managed to find a few items to my liking!  Not too surprising, but I found Bath & Body Works to be the best bet for finding cute gifts under $10.  What are your favorite beauty gifts to give under $10?

Bath & Body Works Deep Cleansing Soap ($4.50 for 8 fl. oz.) are extremely affordable at-home-with-beauty options that work well in just about every household. B&BW has a whole slew of scents to choose from, but one of my favorites to keep in the household is Kitchen Lemon. I just love me a fresh lemon citrus smell in the kitchen!

C.O. Bigelow Mini Mentha Frosty Trio Set ($8.00) includes three mini-sized Mentha Lip Shines in Original, Cinnamint, and Spearmint.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 ($6.50) is a 0.5 oz. tube lip balm that helps combat the cool winter winds and keep lips looking their best. One of my favorite lip balms when you’re not looking for color but just moisture.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine ($7.50) are available in several different scents, but my personal holiday favorite is Warm Spiced Cider! There’s also Hot Buttered Rum, Triple Hot Chocolate, and Vanilla Cream Eggnog for the holiday season.

Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Lotion ($4.00) are travel-sized and easy to take with you wherever you spend the holidays or make a lightweight addition to your purse.

TanTowel Beauty Puck Deodorant Towelettes ($6.50) includes thirty disposable deodorant towelettes for on-the-go freshening. Hey, give it to someone you’re comfortable with, but they seem so handy. Keep one in your purse for those days where you’re rushed and totally forget to use your deodorant!

Bath & Body Works PocketBac Deep Cleansing Hand Gel ($1.50) are purse-sized (or… pocket-sized!) anti-bacterial hand gel for on-the-go cleansing. These are easy to add to any gift you’re giving! (And since I’ve had two separate flus in the past two months… let me tell you, I am well-stocked on these myself!)

Bath & Body Works Double Layer Shea Socks ($7.50) are cute, winter-themed socks with shea butter inside. You can wash these and get up to twenty-five usages. (These are just similar to the much pricier Bliss Spa socks!) I’ll be getting a pair for my Mom, but I’ll probably send a pair to my grandma, too!

  1. I completely agree on and advocate Kiehl’s lip balm. It does wonders for the lips during winter or if you live in a place with dry weather, so it’s a great gift whether or not your friend(s) wear much make-up.

    Love the Shea Socks idea! I’ve never tried them before though. Does the shea get on surfaces like the sofa or bed sheets? Or if you walk around in them, on the floor? Thanks for the info!
