Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers & Gifts Under $10

Here's a gift guide for our favorite items all for under $10. Perfect for stocking stuffers or when you just need to give a little something. Check out our website for even more recommendations. 1. Band-Aids       We are crazy for these Eric Carle band-aids that come in a retro metal collector's tin. They come in two different styles, featuring characters from Carle's Bug and Bear books. $5 each. 2. Bathtub Toys Move over rubber duckie! Bath time is made a whole lot more fun with these cute Eric Carle squirt toys. Comes as a set of five for $9.95. 3. Mini Sketch Books Encourage your budding artist or writer with these blank book sketch pads. They're made of recycled paper, each with a different Eric Carle character on the cover and are small enough to fit in your purse. $2.95 each - choose one or buy a complete set! 4. Mini Bead Rollercoaster We love wooden bead rollercoasters because not only are they fun, but also help stimulate brain activity and fine motor skills in young children. This colorful mini rollercoaster is small enough to bring along on car rides and is only $7.95. 5. Coloring Books While they may be too big to fit in a stocking, these Eric Carle coloring books are a steal at $5.99. They each tell the complete story of Eric Carle's familiar books, but give the chance for your child to be the artist and color the illustrations any way he or she likes! Choose from four styles. 6. Flip Books These are a winner with all ages. We especially love the mini Petit Cinema flip books that bring the art of the old silent movie to life. Choose from four styles. $4.99 each. 7. Sticker Packs     These super cute sticker packs include a blank collector's book and six sheets of Eric Carle stickers. The best part? They're on sale for $3.50 each! Choose from two styles. 8. Silly Bands Everyone is going crazy over these Mo Willems' Pigeon Bands! 20 colorful bands per package, perfect for sharing and trading among friends. $5.95 each. 9. Pin Badges Each set comes with 9 adorable pins, each with a different image from Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Gift the whole pack for a whole lot of flare or break open the set and divide among your friends. $4.95 per set. 10. Caterpillar Plush This lil' guy is super soft and the perfect size for little hands and is baby-safe. $9.95. For more stocking stuffer ideas, click here.
