Books or glassware
Think you can't find a book for $10? Check out your bookstore's bargain table and you'll likely find some great selections for just about every age and interest, including food, pets, sports and science.
If your giftee prefers e-books, don't forget Amazon's "KindleUnlimited," where you pay a monthly fee for unlimited Kindle reading, and Barnes & Noble's "Nook Books Free Friday" books.
Another terrific gift for neighbors, newlyweds and anyone who has just moved into a new home? Glassware.
Everyone thinks of giving stemware in sets of 6 or 8. But for $10, you can bestow a lovely pair of wine glasses, highball or lowball glasses. Or -- for anyone who loves a warm cup of tea, coffee or cocoa -- a handy pair of glass mugs.
Or you can opt for one mug and a half-pound of good coffee.
