I have to buy a gift for a 17yrs old and another for a 15 yrs old. Both are church oriented ppl. The issue is I don't know them and budget is $5 - $10 each.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Itune gift cards, Barnes and Noble gift cards if they like to read (or have a Nook/Kindle), movie gift certificates, gift certificates from local christian bookstore or clothing store.

What about a little basket with shower gel, lotion, nail polish, nail clippers, lip gloss?

You can always go with lighter colors or something with glitter.

Prety girly stationary from Tuesday Morning -under $5, bath and body shop -Sweet Pea Lotion or antibacterial small bottles to hang from their backpacks, small Caboodle plastic boxes(they hold stuff like hair accersories, earrings, nail polishes), frozen yoghurt gift cards like yoghurt zone, get a long strip  pack of 4 or 5 nail polishes from girls or teens section at Marshalls or Ross-$5.99, go to Big Lots, go to Michaels for Jewelry making kits and use the 40% off coupon from newspapers or print on line, cute fashionable slap on wrist watches from Target for $8.99. Good Luck I am sure you will find something they will like. Oh and almost forgot maybe a frame from World Market under $6 or set of bangle bracelets. Look for online printable coupons.
