If you've been good this year, you've already crossed all the names off your list and wrapped every last box. You can sit back, and enjoy your egg nog. Meanwhile, the procrastinators of the world (here, here!) are scrambling to find quality gifts that don't completely reveal exactly how long we waited to start our holiday shopping. And, with our wallets still feeling the blow from the first round of gifting, our strategy is all about efficiency — both in our time and funds.
Those last couple of names on the list are always the trickiest: the close friend you save until the end because it's so hard to find the perfect thing; the work bud you only recently became close with; and, of course, the acquaintance you got during an awkward Secret Santa draw. Whether you're tracking down gifts for friends, relatives, or other satellite individuals in your life, we're here to help you wrap up your holiday shopping without spending an arm and a leg. (After all, you want to save some for yourself for those post-holiday sales!) We found 30 under-$10 gifts that all feel special, so no one will know you waited until the very last minute. Don't worry, we won't tell.
