10 Inexpensive (Yet, Cool) Christmas or Hanukkah Gifts (Most are Under $10)

By LMayes |

‘Tis the season to have a long list of presents to purchase. Teachers. Mailmen. Third Cousins Twice Removed. The long list goes on and on. So, it makes sense that we’d all be looking for thoughtful gifts that cost less than more. Because being thoughtful can be expensive, y’all. You know what I’m talking about. So here are 10 things I found (mostly under $10) that I would be happy to give you. Or my Mailman. To check out my top 10 inexpensive (yet, cool) Christmas or Hanukkah gifts, keep reading…

Leafing Town Necklace from ModCloth

It’s pretty. It’s cool.

Awkward Family Photos book from Three Rivers Press

(Is your family in there? Wouldn’t that be weird?)

Japanese Black Pine Bonsai Tree Kit from HerbKits

Your friend will be the only person on his/her block growing a Bonsai tree. (Unless your friend lives in Brooklyn.)

Solar Powered Lanterns from ModCloth

I want someone to give these to me so I can hang them in my bathroom as a nightlight. (I’m not even kidding.)

Bacon Lip Balm from Think Geek.

You know you totally want this. (And at that price you can get a few and scatter them around the house.)

Verbena-scented Sachet from L’Occitane

You would never buy this for yourself. But you’d love it if someone gave it to you. Because you love Verbena. Admit it.

Elvis Coco from McSteven’s

Aaaanndd, I just ordered this for my dad.

Lounge Bowl and Server from CB2

Also, am I the only one thinking Catapult?

Carnival Umbrella from Fishs Eddy.

It’s cute. It’s happy. It’s yellow!

And finally…

Canned Unicorn Meat from Think Geek

You know you’ll be the only one giving this.

(And no, it’s not edible…as advertised: “Okay, for real: you can’t eat this. It’s a dismembered stuffed unicorn in a can.”)
