My 10 yr son bought a bakugan set from walmart last night. Also for my dd she is doing a girl scout exchange and found a dog in a purse for $10 also at walmart. Gift cards for stores kids like is a general idea

That is a tough one.  At this age they really have very different tastes.  What about one of the Wimpy Kid books?  Or an iTunes gift card or gift card to Target or another store?  Or maybe movie passes?

I say go with a gift certificate. One can not go wrong with those.

I will probably end up getting a gift card unless I can find a decent game for $10. Thanks for the ideas!

Sorry I wasn't of much help,  but it's hard when the gift is not gender specific. Trying to buy a gift for 10 dollars is hard enough, add no gender to the mix and it's a heck of a lot tougher.

 That's hard because boys and girls like different things. I would go with a gift certificate.

Gift cards!! Kids love them. Maybe a $10 gift card to a fast food restaurant or even Walmart.

Go to Overstock.com and get an IPOD Nano arm band for $5. Free shipping too. Got a lot of great ideas there for under 10 and free shipping too. They ship fast. Otherwise, check out Wal Mart. They have a 10 section and so does Target. Good luck. I am done with Xmas thanks to Overstock.
