From $10 stocking stuffers to money-is-no-object splurges, the gifts that are sure to be a hit no matter what your budget

It's that time of year again. The holidays are just around the corner, so there's no more putting off your Christmas shopping. And while we may all have different amounts of cash to splash over the holiday season, the one thing we can all agree on is that we don't want our presents to end up on the re-gifting pile come December 26th. So whether you're counting out your cents or your wallet is bulging at the seams, we've complied a list that will help you be a little more imaginative with your gifting this year.

Under $10

Whether it’s for your Secret Santa or a couple of stocking stuffers for the kids, we often need to snap up a couple of affordable gifts. But while you won't want to shell out much for these, you'll want the money you do spend to go far. So we've gathered together a few ideas for perfect small presents - and you won't need much more than pocket change to get your hands on them.
