      I like your ideas. Gifts are always difficult to buy if more than $10.

      Great hub! I need some ideas for our Book Club as we have a £10 Christmas Santa at our December meeting (when each spends £10 and wraps up the gift, for the others to choose at random). You've given me a few to choose from, thank you.

      Some of the cheapest gifts can be the most fun too. The children are always easy to buy for but adults....!

      Great list, Linda!
