One of my favorite work-related tasks each October is creating my holiday gift guides. I put together specific gift idea lists for different categories: gifts for moms/grandmothers/sisters + yourself, gifts for guys (the hardest to shop for!), and gifts for the littles in your life. Then I get even more specific and create guides for different interests like running or beauty. And today, I’m creating a retailer-specific guide since I know so many of us prefer to order things from the same place when we can.
What is that one place? Amazon, of course! There’s nothing better than free shipping on something that arrives the next day. And since Amazon carries many my favorite retailers and items, I love that I am able to find so many great gifts for people in my life in one place. And it doesn’t hurt that they have such competitive pricing.
Today I’m rounding up my favorite gift ideas from our favorite one-stop-shop. I’m breaking this post up into His and Hers so that you can easily scroll and find ideas for those you’re shopping for. I have all of my gift ideas for kids linked in a separate post (and since they’re all from Amazon, I’m not linking them here). If there’s something I should add to the list, just drop a comment below this post so we can check it out.
My go-to gift in the $30 range is this Simple Modern water bottle. It’s better than the Stanley (yes, I said it), and every woman I know loves it. It’s lighter than the Stanley tumbler and doesn’t leak. And it’s also cheaper. I’ve gifted many of these in the last year. If you want to spend a bit more, pair the water bottle with a gift card, a candle, some LMNT electrolytes, or a lipgloss.
I use my Ember mug every single day. It re-heats your coffee so you never have to take a cold sip. Those of you with busy kids know that you rarely get to drink your coffee while it’s hot, and this mug changes that. I gift one of these to my new-mom friends, often paired with a LAKE robe (here’s my full review of LAKE pajamas and loungewear).
This coffee table book is a mix of beautiful images and devotionals written by Tara-Leigh Cobble, who hosts The Bible Recap. I love looking through this book as I read the Bible. It’s so cool to see photos of the places I’m reading about, and I love that this book is decor on it’s own. I gifted one to my MIL for Mother’s Day and she loves it.
It’s always fun to receive fun beauty products you wouldn’t buy for yourself, like this dry brush. Dry brushing is a trend the beauty world I can get behind, so if you’re looking for a small gift to give someone who keeps up with beauty and wellness trends, this Goop Dry Brush is just the thing.
If you’re looking for a nice hostess gift to take to someone you’re staying with this holiday season, the Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash is a perfect gift. Luxurious hand soap is one of those things that people don’t like to buy for themselves but LOVE to have in their powder bathroom. The Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash smells clean and expensive. It’s not floral or super sweet, but rather the scent you’d expect in a luxury hotel. I love the packaging too.
I’ve been wearing this knit pullover non-stop for weeks since I bought it (I’m wearing mine as I type this). I love that it covers my bum and fits very oversized, and since the sizing is so forgiving, it would make a great gift! I have a size small.
This silk pillowcase was a best-seller during the Prime Big Deal Days and for good reason. It’s very hard to find real silk at such an affordable price! I love that these come in many colors and sizes, and have a hidden zipper making them very streamlined for the rest of your bedding. I ordered a handful of these to gift for Chrismtas this year.
I gifted these wine glasses to my content manager for her birthday and then my nanny got me a set for my birthday and I love them! They come in a set of 2, are made of the best thick/substantial blown glass material, and look so chic. And for only $30, you could gift two sets if you wanted to make a more full set!
As someone who is a real-book lover, I was hesitant to get an e-reader, but I honestly love mine mine! It’s so convenient, especially because I can leave it in my purse all day and read whenever I have to wait for an appointment. It’s also more comfortable to read in bed since I can read one handed and anything to be more comfortable while pregnant, I’ll take. The books are cheaper on Kindle too.
We own and love our deep tissue massage gun, but it’s pretty expensive. We own the one that our sports massage team uses (and yes, I do think it’s worth the price), but if you’re looking for an affordable option, this budget-friendly massage gun by OLsky has incredible reviews. What guy doesn’t want a tool to help them loosen those sore muscles and knots in their back!? Saves you from giving back rubs too. Win win.
I really love the idea of gifting a record player + some special records. It’s so fun to find old records at local stores, and you could begin a collection together. You can find some VERY expensive record players on the market, but this one for $40 on Amazon is too good to pass up. It also has bluetooth and AUX cord capabilities, so you’re not limited to vinyl.
This portable charging bank is not a boys-only gift by any means, but it’s definitely a great option for the guys in your life if they’re complaining about their phone’s lack of charge all the time. I bought two of these for myself over Prime Big Deal Days so that I could keep one in my purse and one in my office. I love that you can keep using your phone while it’s charging your battery and that it doesn’t have any cords. If you keep it charged so that you can use it whenever you need, it’s such a blessing. No more excuses of phones dying while on the golf course. 😉
This Oral-B Pro is the toothbrush both Tommy and I have and love. A toothbrush may not be the most “fun” gift you could think of this season, but many guys like practical things.
I’ve been seeing people talk about these back and neck foam rollers on Instagram and I think Tommy would LOVE them. If your husband or boyfriend complains about back pain all the time, these Chirp Wheel Foam Rollers would make a great gift. You lay on them and they help release the tension in your back and neck. Sounds heavenly.
I’m getting Tommy a Solo Stove for Christmas so we can use it as a family. We’ve never had a fire pit in our new backyard and I think Thomas would have a blast making smores!
These eye massagers make me giggle, but SO many people rave about them! They would be a great gift for any husband or dad who loves tech things (or is just overworked). I would honestly love to try them myself.
A portable bluetooth speaker is always a great gift, but I LOVE that this one has a clip! It’s perfect to attaching to a golf bag. Think of all the ways they could use this — even just clipping it to their belt loop while they do house projects!
I’ll continue to add to my Amazon Storefront whenever I find more gift ideas for Him or Her. Make sure you’re following me there! And I always send out Amazon finds every Sunday to my email list, so be sure to join the list here.
