10 under £10: Birthday presents that won’t break the bank

It’s not always easy to buy your bestie a birthday present you know they’ll love, and it’s even tougher when you’re on a budget. You want something that’s a little bit special, thoughtful, and a little bit different. You definitely don’t want to get them a smellies gift set they’ll take one look at and shove in their bathroom cabinet.
