Finding a gift on a budget can be tricky. Outside of a reasonably priced bottle of wine (which, let’s face it, requires little to no thought), your options can seem… limited, at best. As it turns out, there’s at least one retailer that’s stocked with quite a selection of budget-friendly finds, plenty of which are only $10 or less. Yep, we’re talking about Amazon: The same site you rely on for sensible household buys like spring cleaning products and top-rated humidifiers is actually flush with affordable gift choices that won’t make you look like a cheapskate. In fact, some of these picks are so cute, you’ll want to keep them for yourself! And why not? At these prices, you can actually afford to get two. Happy gifting!
