I like small gifts under $10. They are a great way to say Thank You or Happy Birthday, and make great gifts to take as housewarming or hostess gifts. Or even just as a token of friendship.
Small gifts for the kitchen are my favorite kind.
Kitchen Hand Soap is fabulous.
I like this Kitchen Lemon from Bath and Body Works, 3 for $10!
Other great hand soaps and lotions can be found at Williams-Sonoma
(There are a bunch of darling magnets for sale on Etsy.)
LOVE Crate and Barrel dishtowels. They are pretty and funky and cool. They are inexpensive. And they are good quality.
A few favorites–
I also love this adorable kitchen timer–
(add a bag of lemons and limes–great to take to as a gift for the hostess of a summer BBQ)
Wooden spoons tied with a ribbon
A jar of gourmet jams, jellies, mustard, or other condiments
Places to go for great gifts under $10–
*Etsy under $10–can’t say enough good about it–although you may have to do some searching
*Barnes and Noble or Borders–great little cookbooks for around $10 in their clearance section, sometimes you can get really lucky (and sometimes there are some real duds)
*Crate and Barrel–great dish towels and gadgets, great sales
*IKEA–pretty much everything in their kitchen section is a great deal (downside–not really available online)
*Anthropologie–the sales are awesome and I heart anything from Anthropologie (again, in store you will find more than online)
Any other great gifts you’ve given or received?
I love the idea for a lemon reamer with a bag of lemons. That is a unique gift. Thanks for all the great ideas!!
These are great gift ideas, but I think I need that timer for myself!
I love all those ideas.. I’m big time into fridge magnets! My fridge is a big mess… :)
I’ve only met you once when I was in NY visiting my best friend Wendy and you were nice enough to come watch the kids while we went to see the Rockettes, but I just have to tell you how much I LOVE your blog. Your recipes are divine and I plan on trying some of them. Wendy is very lucky to have such great friends in NY. Happy Birthday!
