Gift Guide 2012:12 Sweet Stocking Stuffers For Under $10 (PHOTOS)

Trying to come up with useful and unique stocking stuffers can be next to impossible; throw in a tight budget and things start to get really scary. Although the idea of getting a few small gifts seems exciting, it is a challenge to find items that make an impact and don't end up in the garbage (or stuffed in a closet).

December is a perfect time of year to scour the discount section and find amazing gifts (many great sales actually start before Christmas). Beauty products are always a smart place to start as their price points tend to be lower than clothes. Costume jewelry, lingerie and hoisery are other departments you should hit up when trying to find interesting (and stylish) items for the holiday season.

Click through the slideshow below for some awesome stocking stuffers for under $10. Happy shopping!
