If you have little ones to shop for, don’t think everything you buy has to be overly expensive. As I sit down at the beginning of the season to fill out my holiday gift list, I set a spending limit for each person on the list. Without a budget, I would overspend and our budget would go flying out the window. After purchasing the one big ticket item on the list, I am always looking for those last minute gifts that are under $10 so I can maximize the number of gifts under the tree. Here are five great kid gifts that are under $10 that you can pick up at most retailers today.
Last Minute Kids Gift Ideas Under $10
If you really like the thought of introducing those old spooky characters like Dracula, Frankenstein, and Wolf-man to your children (especially little girls), don’t pass up this opportunity to buy them Monster High Dolls, which are the daughters of these and other iconic boogeymen. There are plenty to choose from and some are as low as $8 at select retailers.
But if your child isn’t into this type of doll, you can always find any Barbie, Bratz doll, and other such feminine figures for under $10 this year. You can’t go wrong with a new doll!
Ninja Turtle Action Figures
Did you love the Ninja Turtles as a kid? Kids today love them, too, especially thanks to the new cartoon about them. The foursome also have new action figures, action play sets, and even full-length dress up costumes. Any of the figures and action sets come in under $10, making them a great find for the child who loves Turtle-Power!
Candy Land was just on sale for $5 at Target. Chutes and Ladders was found for $4.88 at Wal-Mart. Monopoly can be purchased for less than $10 in most places. Board games are a great way to bond with your kids and have fun at the same time. At these prices, you can pick up more than one and package them as a fun gift, or give multiple kids a different board game each. Many board games can also be purchased online at Amazon and shipped directly to your home by Christmas to this day for these low prices if your local retailers do not have them at these greatly discounted prices anymore.
Slippers and Pajamas
This may seem boring, but after all the gifts have been opened and everyone is settling down to watch a new movie or play that new game, what do you think your kids will be wearing? That’s right…Slippers and PJs!! You can pick up a nice, warm pajama set and slippers both for less than $10, making it a comfy gift no kid will turn down.
Children’s classic movies are on sale all over for $5 or less right now and so are classic books. Pick up a movie, a book, and a bag of your child’s favorite candy or treat and package them together to make a great “entertainment” gift. It will give them something to watch, read, and snack on in the coming weeks.
