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 terrific 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 great gift for neighbors, newlyweds and anyone who has just moved into a new home? Glassware.

Everyone thinks of giving stemware in sets of six or eight. But for $10, you can bestow a beautiful pair of wine glasses, highball or lowball glasses. Or -- for anyone who enjoys a warm cup of tea, coffee or cocoa -- a beautiful pair of glass mugs.

Or you can opt for one mug and a half-pound of good coffee.
