Holiday Gifts Under $10
In place of traditional holiday gift guides, that feature multiple products by multiple brands, I’m doing something a little different. I’ll be rounding up my favourite presents for the season, but each day I’ll be showcasing a different company. Make sure to check back daily as I’ll have a new brand with my must-have holiday gifts for the season.

Most of the gift sets are under $10 and can be found at your local Wal-Mart. Everything comes beautifully packaged in cute, playful and girly designs.
