Amazon has a list of its “Most Gifted” products, which can be super helpful for checking off names on your holiday shopping list (or, you know, giving you ideas of things to gift yourself).


Here are some of the coolest gift ideas from that list this week:



A pack of 120 gel pens so your friend who owns a hundred adult coloring books can create vibrant pictures with TONS of color options.


Promising review: “Im the first one to admit I hoard gel gens and markers : ) Out of all the sets I’ve purchased these are the best!! The colors are absolutely gorgeous. The ink flow is wonderful and no ink skipping. Well worth the money as I paid full price. I will be recommending this set to all of my adult coloring buddies. Thanks Shuttle Art for this BEAUTIFUL set of pens. You’ve outdone your selves!” —Sid C

Price: $23.99



A stainless steal Mixpresso electric coffee percolator guaranteed to impress a coffee snob. This percolator can brew two to 10 cups of rich, hot coffee. It features an easy-to-pour spout and removable coffee filter (including a filter basket and pump tube).


Promising review: If you enjoy strong, hot coffee then this product is perfect! It is nice to have a back up to a standard drip coffee maker, especially one that keeps coffee at peak drinking temperature (unlike my drip coffee maker).” —lschnese

Price: $38.99



An Echo Dot for the busybody who could really use a personal assistant. With this device, Alexa can tell them when their next appointment is, play their fave song, set alarms, and more.


This compact smart speaker can play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more.

Promising review: “I absolutely love it! Bought to use as a radio/ambient noise device as I fall asleep, but now realize the capabilities FAR exceeded what I initially purchased it for, so I also use it as an alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker for my iPad, personal assistant (‘Alexa, add milk to my shopping list’), Amazon Music speaker (which I never used until buying the Dot). The sound quality is really good, especially considering it’s small size and relatively ‘budget friendly’ price. I definitely recommend to anyone, and if you’re a Prime member…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Don’t even ‘add to cart’ just click ‘buy now’ and watch your life get simpler.” —Dave S

Price: $24.99 (available in four colors)



A Cards Against Humanity party game that you’ll definitely want to give to someone with a great sense of humor! Beware, the jokes are not G-rated, so maybe stick to gifting this to an adult on your list.


The new version of this popular party game has over 150 new cards.

I own this game and have played at more than a few parties. It’s hilarious, easy to understand, and definitely NSFW.

Promising review: “This game is so much fun. I played it with three generations of family last weekend. I’ve been fearful of us drifting apart. Usually the adult nephews are bored and ready to bolt. Everybody has to be ‘someplace.’ I had reservations about playing this game with my mom and her grandsons so I pulled maybe 30 of the most ‘horrible’ cards but after about 20 min I started shuffling them in. We as a family haven’t laughed and enjoyed each others’ company in a VERY long time. After two hours flashed past more than one face hurt from laughing. We like to think highly of ourselves but by the end the consensus was yup, we really are horrible people. Funny but THAT bonded us. Looking forward to Thanksgiving and I’m not the only one.” —Not Offended

Price: $25



A copy of HGTV-star Johanna Gaine’s recipe book, Magnolia Table, so the home chef in your life can whip you up some delicious meals down the line.


This cook book is filled with recipes inspired by dozens of Gaines family favorites and classic comfort selections, from grilled salmon to lemon pie.

Promising review: “I just got the cookbook last week but so far I’m impressed. It has a good variety of recipes with simple ingredients that are easy to find or you probably already have. I made banana bread this morning and it is delicious! It was easy to make and turned out exactly as I hoped. It’s nice when a cookbook has ingredients that are simple and not weird that you have to go to specialty stores to get. Looking forward to making more!!” —Molly E. Lippincott

Price: $16.59



A straight-forward Blue Sky planner that doesn’t have all the extra fluff, just the basic monthly and weekly layouts to help any Type-A person stay organized in the new year.


What it includes:

–Monthly view pages organized by tabs, with note sections and mini previous and next month reference calendars

–Roomy weekly view pages

–Contact pages

–Notes pages

Promising review: This is the absolute best ‘no frills’ planner. No visual distractions, and no times included (because how many of us are dentists planning our days in 15-minute increments, anyway?). I have been using this planner for at least five years and plan to continue using it.” —Against Bad Poetry

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sizes).



A set of cute little chapstick holder keychains for a great stocking stuffer that they’ll definitely put to good use, especially during the winter. You can gift these to multiple people and keep one for yourself!


Promising review: “These are so cute and convenient! I like that it came with six so I can put one on my car keys, my handbag, my diaper bag, and have a few to give to my sister! So simple and fun! They feel well made too, and all the prints are adorable!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $9.53 (six in a pack)



A splurge-worthy Alexa-enabled AeroGarden Bounty, which is a fully contained in-home garden system, so anyone with a green thumb (or even a beginner) can grow some herbs, salads, tomatoes, peppers, and more 365 days a year!


The plants grow in water, so you don’t have to worry about making a mess in your home. Since the garden is wifi enabled and Alexa compatible, it allows you to keep your plants healthy with reminders and info on all the features.

Set includes: 9-Pod Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit with Genovese Basil (x2), Thai Basil, Curly Parsley, Italian Parsley, Thyme, Chives Dill, Mint, and Miracle-Gro liquid plant food (enough for a full season of growth). Everything is also natural and non-GMO.

Promising review: “We have really enjoyed growing our herbs with the AeroGarden bounty basic. Set up took ‘basil’-cally 5 minutes, and our herbs were sprouting in no ‘thyme.’ We have never had a garden of our own, so it has been a big ‘dill’ watching our herbs grow. The size is great for our medium size kitchen. It fits like it was ‘mint’ to be! In all seriousness, the AeroGarden has been a treat to have. It’s amazing how easy it was to set up, maintain with the digital reminders, and watch the herbs grow quickly! These photos were taken only 11 days after set up, and we already have substantial growth with no additional effort since set up. We can’t wait to start cooking with our homegrown herbs.” —JJ

Price: $279.99 (available in four colors and designs)



A pack of brunette spiral hair ties that’ll help prevent your friend or relative with long hair from having annoying ponytail bumps and hair headaches. Plus, these are waterproof and more hygienic than regular hair ties.


Promising review: “Love these! They hold up to the thickest hair without feeling too tight and causing headaches. They come out easily without snagging and they don’t leave that dent in your hair if you wear them a long time. I’m so glad they came out with these!!” —Melissa French

Price: $7.99 (pack of eight)



A set of Bear Paws shredder claws so the person who is always trying to have a BBQ can easily lift, handle, shred, and cut meats.


Promising review: “These work wonderfully! I originally purchased them because I was cooking for a group of 100+ on a trip. We made about 40lbs of shredded chicken thighs. Having made the same meal about a year prior, and spending a couple of hours shredding chicken with two kitchen forks, we knew there had to be an easier way! Using these shredding claws, we shredded 40lbs of thighs in about 45 minutes. There were two of us & we kept swapping, because shredding still hurts your back/shoulders. But these claws are so sharp & useful that it took less than half the time! I’ve since used them to make shredded pork at home & they also work wonderfully for that!” —H. L. Kern

Price: $12.95 (available in six colors)



An Adidas duffel bag that your friend, kid, or sibling can use for hitting the gym, road trips, practice, and more. It’s a convenient size for all the essentials and it has a stylish sporty look.,

Promising review: This bag is a great balance between being big enough to fit my gym equipment while still fitting comfortably in a typical gym locker. It comes with an optional plastic sheet that you can use on the bottom to keep the shape. There are no pockets, so if you need them, this isn’t the right bag for you. I got the Siesta Print and it looks great in person, the photos don’t do it justice.” —S P

Price: $25 (available in 45 colors)



A celestial solar powered garden light sure to make a beautiful gift for anyone who loves to spend time hanging out on their porch or in their backyard.


Promising review: “I ordered one of these and put it in my front yard, close to some bricks which form a garden. I like it so much, I ordered another. So easy to just put in the ground and let it charge. Gives my front yard a very charming and soft look. I so recommend this to everyone.” —Leeroy

Price: $23.99



A hide and seek squirrel toy, because it’ll keep your pup or your loved one’s busy for hours. There are also different sizes to choose from so you can gift one that works for the dog’s size., Amazon

Promising review: “I have a Goldendoodle puppy (11 weeks). My vet said they are an intelligent breed and recommended getting her ‘puzzle toys.’ She loves this one! She loves to pull the squirrels through the holes. Plus, they squeak and are a great size for playing fetch, which she also loves. She seems like a chew monster to me, but I’m guessing she’s not as bad as other dogs. She does chew on it some and drag around the plush log, but so far no damage to it. I’ve had this for a couple of weeks now and she uses it daily.” —Rebecca

Price: $6.79+ (available in three sizes and five designs)



A pair of knit touchscreen gloves with a soft lining and elastic cuff, compatible with everything from a phone to a tablet to a car. This handy gift can be used by anyone whether they’re shopping, ice skating, or just hanging out outside this winter. Plus, the gloves have an anti-slip design so they won’t drop their phone every two seconds.


Promising review: “Bought these gloves because I am a college student in Michigan. The winters are brutal and I usually talk on the phone while I walk to and from class. On really cold days (which are most days in the winter here) my hands ache while holding my phone as I walk to and from classes on campus. I couldn’t wear regular mittens because it defeated the purpose when I had to use my touch screen phone. I went on Amazon and found these gloves. They’re so cute and warm and work on my phone, I am thoroughly happy with my purchase.” —Clair

Price: $6.99+ (available in sizes M–XL and 10 colors)



A mini basketball hoop for the sports fanatics on your list to hang on their wall or door for endless hours of shooting hoops.,

Promising review: “Purchased this as an Amazon deal. It was a great price so I gave it to my son as a bday gift. I was surprised by the great quality of the product. Two months later and I’m blown away that he’s still playing with this daily. He said it was his favorite gift! Who knew?!” —GRA2B

Price: $14.99+ (available in four designs, including glow in the dark)



An adorable little sloth cosmetic bag that’ll no doubt be your friend’s new favorite way to carry around their makeup or other small essentials.


Promising review: “It fit in my purse perfect, keeps all my lipsticks and lotions all in one place, no more digging to the bottom to find everything.” —Sonja R

Price: $6.99 (available in 18 designs)



A Yeti vacuum insulated tumbler with a lid perfect for anyone who loves to travel, go camping, or just someone who always has some coffee in their hand. This stainless steel cup will keep their cold drinks cold and their hot drinks hot., Amazon

Promising review: “Great deal! I decorate these and use them as gifts, perfect for keeping your cup of coffee warm or your cocktail cool for hours!” —Marianne

Price: $19.99 (available in 13 colors)



A surreal laser projector with an LED nebula cloud that’ll fill the giftee’s room with a starry night sky. It’ll make an amazing night light or set the tone for some epic movie nights and house parties.


Promising review: “I am SO HAPPY with this little star show machine. It covers the entire ceiling and walls of my huge bedroom, the ‘stars’ move slowly, with some shooting stars mixed in, the ‘nebula cloud’ is beautiful, blue, and morphing. Not sure why some people said the motor is noisy because mine is super quiet and I can barely hear it. It’s super easy to move between the different settings to show the stars and nebula, just the stars, or just the nebula cloud. It’s kind of amazing that this tiny, little machine can put out this amazing light show. I HIGHLY recommend it!” —Richard J Pocaro

Price: $49.99



A gel UV LED nail lamp with a screen, smart sensors, and automatic lighting so your bestie can have gel nails as much as they want without spending a fortune at the nail salon every couple of weeks.


Promising review: “Works like one in the salon! I don’t have time to go get my nails done and don’t have time to wait for regular nail polish to dry (or to have to repaint them every two days with regular nail polish). I love being able to do my own gel manicure at home on my own time. Make sure to follow the gel polish manufacturer’s instructions for best results with the polish.” —LeaPeea

Price: $18.99



A copy of Dad Jokes guaranteed to give any father (and the family) a good chuckle.


Promising review: “A+. I gave this to my dad on Christmas and he didn’t stop reading it the entire evening. I believe dad jokes are in dads’ DNA everywhere so they will love this regardless. Every few seconds we would hear giggling and then “Okay, okay, I got another one, everyone listening??”…. If this is something you want your day filled with get it for your Dad. I recommend, with CAUTION. My dad hasn’t stop texting me jokes from it and it has been eight days since I’ve given it to him.” —Karen Doppel

Price: $5.99



And a makeup kit perfect for your kid or sibling who is always getting into your expensive makeup. This fun, pigmented set is so nice, you may want to play with it yourself!


Kit includes: 48 highly pigmented eyeshadows (mineral oil based), four blushes (mid orange to dark pink), six lip glosses (pink and orange shades), and

five double-sided applicators for blush and shadows

Promising review: “For the price, this is great. It is well made, well packaged. The pigments are strong, a little does go a long way. I bought it for my daughter to play with and I am considering getting a set for me and discarding my older makeup. She has been playing with it for a couple of months now and there is still plenty of color left.” —KT

Price: $13.99
