I don’t know about you, but this dumpster fire of a year has also added a financial strain to the mix. Good times. Can 2020 be done now please?!
Anyway, it’s got me thinking (and stressing) about the upcoming holiday season and how we’re going to manage gift-giving.
I love giving gifts, it’s my love language. I want the people I love to know that I love them! But I have to do it on a budget.
Thankfully, Etsy is here to save the day. There are so many incredible handmade gifts out there and I managed to find 20 gifts under $10 that are perfect for kids.
I just think buying handmade really elevates the gift. And not just because I’m a maker. I’ve always loved buying handmade!
All but one of these gifts under $10 would be appropriate any time of year, not just for Christmas. But these are all awesome socking stuffer ideas that are also perfect for birthdays or other milestones and celebrations.
I tried to find as many gender neutral items as I could. There are a few hair clips and earrings but lots of ‘boy-ish’ ideas too. Plus most of these shops have multiple style and colour options when you click through to have a look, so you can definitely find something to suit your needs.
I think all of these gifts under $10 are suitable for kids aged 2-10 ish, give or take a little. 🙂
Since a large portion of my readership is based in the US, I decided to find items under $10 USD. So these gifts are under $13.50 CAD. Which is still an amazing price point for a handmade gift!
Gifts Under $10
This shop has lots of different kits, dinosaurs, narwhals, princesses and more. I love giving kits and creative artsy DIY stuff. Probably because I love getting those kinds of gifts too! haha
These are my little felt rose hair clips. 🙂 You can custom pick the colours you’d like.
These crayons are priced per letter. So the longer the name, the higher the cost. But you can’t beat personalization for amping up a Christmas gift!
Happy little hand-stitched starfish ornaments. Another one of my designs that can be custom-made in the colours of your choosing! The string can be very easily removed if you’d prefer to have a little pocket toy instead.
It fizzes all multicoloured! This is so fun. And this shop has lots of different bath bomb options if your gift recipient isn’t into unicorns.
6. Puppy Charm
I thought these were so cute! Again, the shop has lots of different options, some even have personalization available.
These puzzles are priced per letter. So a long name may put you over the $10 mark. These are probably more suited to a toddler aged child.
8. Citrus Slime
This shop has so many fun slime options. Bright and colourful and full of fun little extras. I really like the poison apple slime but this fuchsia citrus slime is my fave.
10. Shell Hair Clip
These are my design and are available either as a set or a single clip. They are so pretty and shimmery up close, the photo hardly does it justice!
This shop has some really cute little heart earrings too. I love how delicate and minimal they are.
12. Magnetic Letters
These beautiful letters can also be personalized with a name painted along the side.
13. Digital Print
This is a digital print that you’ll have to print yourself. It’s just such a lovely print I had to include it.
This is the only idea on this list that is a true Christmas-centred gift idea. Although everything here would make an awesome stocking stuffer.
15. Initial Studs
Simple and lovely initial stud earrings.
16. Wall Decals
Aren’t these wall decals gorgeous?! I kinda want them for my room! This shop has many different decal styles and colours available.
17. Octopus Keychain
This adorable crocheted octopus keychain can be personalized with a name too!
This shop has lots of DIY clay kits for making different little monsters.
Simple and stretching bow headbands to match any outfit!
Anything that gets sent to school should be personalized, and even that isn’t a guarantee the item won’t get lost! My son managed to lose his labeled mask pouch on the second day of school this year. lol
These 20 gifts under $10 are really just a sampling of what’s available on Etsy. You can find so many amazing gift ideas on Etsy, check out this guide of personalized ornaments!
