Spread some love today. 💝
If you’re doing whatever you can to stay in touch with loved ones, we thought up some cheap under $10 gifts to send as a fun and unexpected way to let someone know you’re thinking of them during this difficult time.❤️
The Coronavirus pandemic may be able to put life and socializing to a screeching halt, but it doesn’t mean you can’t spread love in other ways.
Check out these thoughtful ideas for gifts priced at $10 or less, including delivery!
1. Send a yummy box of Cheryl’s Cookies.
At Cheryl’s Cookies, you can grab this Birthday Cookie Sampler AND a free $10 Reward Card for only $9.99 shipped! The best part… there is no coupon needed for this deal. You can read more about this promo here.
“I sent some Cheryl’s Cookies to my dad and he was so excited to get cookies unexpectedly – he seemed happier to get those than he was with his Christmas gift which was 10x more expensive.” – Jessica
2. Send a succulent.
You don’t need to know everything about succulents in order to care for them, which ultimately makes them a great gift idea for anyone. As an idea, you could purchase a 5-pack of starter succulents that’s just $17.95. If you gift one to each of your closest friends, you’ll be spending just $3.59 on each gift.
Here are two other places that I’d recommend ordering online:
- Fat Plants San Diego Succulent Plant. This California licensed nursery and grower guarantees fully rooted plants and always has a great variety.
- The Home Depot. A tried and true home improvement store that always has a great selection of succulent species.
Hip Tip: We shared some of our favorite succulent planters here and Lina also shares how she built a beautiful succulent plant holder on her patio here! 😍 If you’re still needing more greenery in your life, here are 15 other types of plants that don’t require a green thumb.
3. Send an amazing 3D LovePop card.
If you like to keep things old school and send meaningful, handwritten cards via snail mail, this company offers incredibly designed 3D cards that be treasured by anyone that receives them.
When you buy 5 cards for $50 from our link, you’ll spend just $10 on each card (normally $13 EACH), so although you have to buy a few to spend just $10 on each card, it’s more than worth it if you have a few people in mind.
And with Mother’s Day coming up, surely you can send a few to mom, your stepmom, grandma, and maybe even just some mom friends to tell them they’re doing a great job!
“These cards are so amazing and high quality. I first saw them on display at my local UPS store and thought they were so beautiful. I would be totally blown away if someone sent me a card like this, and I’ll definitely be sending some to people I love soon!” – Sara
4. Send a fun activity book to a kid who’s not in school.
Make your little girl’s unicorn dreams come true for less than $4!

An important message to our readers:
In light of this post, we realize that ordering any of these gifts and sending them to someone will require the essential jobs of factory workers and mailmen to make what may be considered a non-essential order & delivery. We are forever grateful for their courage and unwavering efforts. That said, we want to make sure we’re keeping somewhat of a sense of normalcy with our posts and letting our readers know all of the services available to them, even if they may not be a top priority at the moment.
Our first priority here at Hip2Save is to ensure the safety of everyone and to do our best to encourage people to stay home, order online, and do what is best for their own families. Additionally, we are also making sure our online deals, especially on essentials, are loud and clear on the site.
Thank you for your support and good vibes to all,
We’re sharing fun and safe ways you can celebrate a birthday during social distancing.
