10 Gifts for $10 or less

Each year when the holidays roll around, my husband and I establish a little spending budget that we use to splurge on each other's gifts so we don't get too out of hand. I read an article the other day that the average American family goes into over $1500 in credit card debt during the holidays. Uggh. :( So... in the effort to provide a few gift ideas with various price points, here is gift guide numero uno. You really don't have to spend a lot (or anything at all) to give something meaningful and beautiful. Put these gifts in a stocking, a wooden shoe, or wrap them up real fancy.

1: Monogrammed Mugs from Anthropologie $6.00
2: Wooden Lemon Reamer from Williams-Sonoma $8.50
3: Royal Treatment Egg Cups from Uncommon Goods $10
4: Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 from Kiehl's $8.50
5: Moleskine Pocket Journal from Amazon $7.50
6: Kolo Vineyard 5 x 7 Album from Kolo $8
7: Mini Digital Keychain Camera from Buy $10
8: 101 Things You Need to Know from Urban Outfitters $9.95
9: Art Set for the Jet Set Colored Pencils from Vickerey $8
10: Yesterday's News Colored Pencils from Fred Flare $9

I have the Anthro mug and i love it! It's really big and deep, and great for hot chocolate in the winter!

I have gone through many moleskin travel journals. They are the best, I love the pocket in the back. Great for hiding treasures! The colored pencils would go nicely with it!

Excellent choice in gifts, I believe that the guy who did the documentry "Supersize Me" is doing another one about people values when it comes to christams shopping, something along the lines of we should stop equating our show of love with material goods. Sounds very interesting...my long winded point is I think he would approve of your gift list :)
