Christmas is a month away so I thought I would share some gift ideas that are under $10. These would be great for your friends. I did a manicure/pedicure jar, a stationary jar and the classic lolly/chocolate jars. I'm sure you could think of a lot more. I bought the jars at Big W - they were six for $6.
Manicure/pedicure jar - Total cost $8
Jar - $1 from Big W
Nail polish - $1 each from K-Mart (I bought a pack of eight for $8)
Hand cream and nail file and buff set - $4 on sale from Priceline
Nail polish remover wipes - $1 from K-Mart
Stationery jar - Total cost $9
Jar - $1 from Big W
Sticky notes - $2 from K-Mart
Highlighters - $2 from K-Mart
Coloured pens - $2 from K-Mart
Chocolate or lolly jar
The price varies depending on your candy or chocolate of choice.

If you don't like these vouchers, you can find other designs at The Spruce Crafts website. Here are some examples of favours:
I made this cute Mother's Day gift with a $2 photo frame from K-Mart. I took out the glass and put in some black card then attached some string and wooden pegs (also from K-Mart). You can either handwrite your own quote or print it out on the computer. I cheated and used Word to print mine on some scrap paper from K-Mart.
