Small Budget, Big Impact

December 03, 2016

There are people on your gift-giving list that linger around through the season. You want to share something meaningful. Let’s not call them obligations—just not-so-close acquaintances that are hard-to-pick-for. That office Secret Santa name you picked from the bowl, your brother-in-law who you only see during this time of year, the hairstylist who makes you look fabulous—and you want to keep it that way. They all will appreciate something thoughtful, and it doesn’t have to be big or blow the budget. Head over to our blog for out “hard-to-buy-for gift guide” that will point you in the right direction. Or find more inspiration on our Gift Giving Pinterest board.

And then with those ideas fresh in mind, check out our $10 and under stocking stuffers and gifts collection. Include a handwritten note and be sure to tell them why your gift was such a good one—it supports human rights projects around the globe, like monitoring water contamination in Guatemala or building homes in Haiti. 

You’ve got this. Put a smile on their face without putting a strain on your budget with our under $10 gifts. To get you started, here are three of our favorites.

Ornament Shop
Ornaments make a great gift for those you don’t know well, but want to spread some cheer to. In a variety of materials and just the right price point, choose something special.

Chocolate Decadence
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Bundle a few different flavors together with a festive ribbon and you’re sure to put a smile on their faces. We’ve even got fair-trade Hanukkah gelt

Jams and Spreads
Let’s face it—the holidays are about eating. Choose a sumptuous spread, add a bow to the top of the jar and call it a day. They’ll thank you when their English muffin pops out of the toaster the next morning.
