Every year around this time, I have the same problem. I know what I want to gift to my friends and my family during the holidays, but when people ask me what’s on my list, I have no effing clue. If I find something I like, I tend to just buy it for myself without thinking that this might actually be something good to add to my wish list. Well, this year, I’m trying to hold off with the impulse purchases and actually leave some things on my list that I like or, even better, love.
Amazon is pure magic in the sense that if you can think of something, chances are you’ll find that special something on their website. And even better for last-minute shoppers like me, they have that magical Prime two-day shipping. But the options are literally limitless when it comes to gift options, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorites to add to our Amazon Prime Gift Guide this year.
These products run the gamut, so there’s probably something perfect for everyone. Or you can be like me, add this all to your Amazon wish list, and email it to your family. (In fact, do that today, if they’re still bugging you for a list.)
For the Go-Getter: Beautiful and functional, this bag is an upgrade from your typical schoolyard tote. Pack up all your daily must-haves while staying stylish when you hit the streets.
For the Apartment Gardener: Do you dream of fresh herbs within an arm’s reach, but that’s impossible because you live in a tiny apartment? I HEAR YOU. Bring the outside in with this hydroponic countertop planter. For those of you that might not have a green thumb, it will even remind you when to water your plants and automatically turns the growing light on and off when needed. Yay, technology!
For the Music Lover: I literally used to spend half of my morning commute untangling my damn headphones. With these pink Bluetooth headphones, that (thankfully) is no longer an issue. I can now get my groove on wirelessly!
For the Tastemaker: Move over boring bud vases! Liven up your mantelpiece by adding your favorite seasonal blooms to this stunning modern vessel.
For the Comedian: Who doesn’t love a good meme? Laugh your ass off with your party guests by playing an updated spin on your old favorite, Cards Against Humanity.
For the Tea Lover: No offense to grandma, *sips tea* but this is not your grandma’s teapot. Modern and luxe, this teapot was designed to be the center of attention and look great on the stovetop or the countertop.
For the host: You can make a kick-ass drink, but do you have the glassware to back it up? This gold tumbler will visually take your drinks to the next level and have your guests smiling with every sip. BONUS: They also come in black!
For the Entertainer: Toss those boring shot glasses to the side and throw these Himalayan salt ones into the mix. Beautiful and tasty, they get the job done and you won’t have to clean up all that pesky salt.
For the Quote Collector: Get your daily mantra or favorite Beyoncé lyric Instagram ready with the rectangle letter board’s cool cousin, the hexagon. If white isn’t your thing, it also comes in black for something a little more traditional.
