Inspired by a friend's recent comment that you can't get a good gift for under $10 ("the only things I can think of below $10 are Garnier Fructis shampoo and a Tuesday matinee at the movies"), we decided to take that as a challenge, and dig up 50 great gifts which cost 10 bucks and under (and in one case, $10.21 -- damn you, Julie Klausner!). Enjoy, cheapskates!
