Whether you're looking to get a small gift for a woman in your family or just a friend, $10 is not a lot of money to work with. However, you can stretch every dollar and still show you care if you get creative with your ideas. Women typically care more about the thought behind the gift, which helps when you have a tight budget. Think small but classy when you're browsing for that perfect $10 item.
Burt's Bees is a cosmetic brand that specializes in all-natural grooming products such as shampoo, lotion and lip balm. While some products have a hefty price tag, small gift kits are available for $10 and under as well. These items are especially fitting if your gift receiver has sensitive skin or allergies to products with harsh chemicals. The best part about the Burt's Bees line is it's typically sold at local drug stores, making it easy to pick up in a hurry.
Typically, an unwritten rules of gift card giving is to put an ample amount of cash on the card for the recipient to splurge with. However, there are several types of vendors where small amounts are perfectly acceptable. If your family member or friend is a coffee drinker, she will appreciate $10 to spend at Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts. Ice cream parlors, fast food restaurants and big-box retail stores are all options. The important part is knowing what she likes and where she frequents.
Jewelry doesn't always have to be expensive for a woman to want to wear it. Look at the jewelry section of stores such as Target or Walmart for a pair of earrings or a casual necklace for under $10. Be mindful of the labels--make sure the jewelry says "nickel-free" or "for sensitive ears" to avoid turning the woman's finger green or causing an allergic reaction. There's nothing wrong with diamonds, but there's also nothing wrong with a set of casual earrings that a girl can wear every day.
