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 10-piece lavender spa gift set complete with everything the giftee will need for a relaxing evening of pampering at home. The products are formulated with natural ingredients such as sunflower seed oil and vitamin E to help them nourish and moisturize their skin.


Set includes: Two bath bombs, hand soap, hand cream, shower gel, body lotion, body butter, bubble bath, bath salt, bath puff, and a weaved gift bag.

Promising review: “This gift set is absolutely gorgeous!! I’m serious, I would expect to pay a lot more for everything you get!! First, the tote it comes in is beautiful. I want one in all colors!! Then the products, oh my, they smell sooo good!!! I LOVE the body lotion, hand cream, and the body butter! Let’s talk about the shower gel… it did not make my skin dry or itchy at all. I can imagine the bath salts, bath bombs and bubble bath would be the same (just haven’t got to them yet). I am totally getting more of these as gifts for my daughter-in-laws.” —Sherry Smith

Price: $23.62+ (also available in rose or vanilla)



A stainless steel insulated can cooler made for 12 oz. slim cans guaranteed to keep their beverages cold and refreshing for hours.,

Promising review: “If you like to drink the slim cans, you totally need to pick up one (or two or three!) of these. This was my first Brumate item, so I was very surprised at how durable it was and heavy (in a good way, not heavy in a bad way). It was SO effective here in Florida since it’s still hot here even in winter. I love the bright aqua color, and I’m already planning on grabbing a few more. I used these on my Smirnoff spiked watermelon seltzer drink cans.” —Sunny Sweet Days

Price: $19.99 (available in 24 colors)



A clip-on LED selfie light that’ll make the best stocking stuffer for anyone who is always trying to get the perfect pic for Instagram.


Promising review: “Right out of the box it was easy to use and I was taking amazing pictures with my iPhone like I never had before. A lot of power in a tiny package; it’s easy to slip into my purse or pocket and I take it with me everywhere my phone goes so I’m always ready to grab the perfect shot. Love it!” —Allison C.

Price: $13.99



A pack of acne patches made with hydrocolloid dressing, tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica for your friend who is obsessed with skin care. These will suck the gunk right out of zits and help them fade away overnight.,

Promising review: “Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY’RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is ideal because you can easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin.” —Caitlyn

Price: $8.50 (includes 40 round patches)



An aromatherapy diffuser and essential oil set to fill the giftee’s home or work space with relaxing scents. The diffuser includes seven light modes with two intensity settings, as well as four timer settings and an auto shutoff feature. And the natural oils have no added fillers or additives., Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve had many diffusers in my life and this one is my favorite! It really does a good job at diffusing the essential oils — and it’s a nice, neutral color. I was hesitant at first, because I didn’t know the quality of oils for this brand, but I’ve been very happy with it so far. Everyone in the office loves to stop by my desk because of this diffuser! I can’t believe I got this diffuser and all the oils for the price I paid! That is unheard of in the stores. Diffusers usually run anywhere from $20-$50 and then 12 essential oils can be as high at $75! Definitely a great buy!” —Olivia H.

Price: $39.95 (set includes the diffuser and 12 essential oils)



A 12 oz. bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey, because the foodie or hostess on your list will love to try this sweet-heat chili pepper-infused honey with their pizza, wings, tea, cocktails, and more! Plus, it’s gluten-free.


Promising review: “This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I’ll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked.” —Martha Ronemus

Price: $8.48



A natural men’s body scrub soap bar so your boyfriend, husband, brother, or friend can exfoliate and scrub away dryness for smooth, clean skin. Plus, it smells good, but not too strong as it’s lightly scented with agarwood, sandalwood, and musk.


Promising review: “I have probably tried about 10 different exfoliating soaps and this is the best by far. If you sweat a lot like I do, you need a soap that’s going to lather well and scrub off the caked on dirt. Other brands I’ve tried just couldn’t get the caked on dirt washed off. If you want a real effective exfoliating soap, I would give this a try. Some of the other ‘scented’ soaps smell like a bottle of Old Spice was dumped into the soap. Also, the price for a 7 oz. bar is about 40% less than other brands. Good price, great soap.” —Saul F

Price: $7.99



A compact electric air fryer that’ll make a perfect gift for a home chef. This innovative kitchen gadget uses AirCrisp technology (instead of oil) to help reduce added fat by 70-80% — while still giving them the great taste of yummy fried foods.,

Promising review: “This little gadget is awesome! I purchased it for my office at work, as I used to cook my sweet potato fries in a convection oven where I would have to go into the break room multiple times to flip my fries and reset the timer for additional cooking. This air fryer has made my life so much simpler and has eliminated all of that! My frozen sweet potato fries now only take 15 min to cook, I can keep the fryer in my office, and after about five uses, I can say it cooks very well and gives my fries (and tots) a delicious crisp fried taste. I have already encouraged several of my co-workers to purchase one, and I’ll probably buy a larger one for my house down the road. This size is ideal for one or two servings, so if you are feeding more people, I would recommend a larger air fryer. Clean-up also couldn’t be easier! It’s adorable and a simple tool, I am very happy with my purchase!” —Michelle My Bell ♥

Price: $39.99+ (available in five colors)



A jade roller and gua sha set to help the giftee massage and detox their skin. They can put these in the freezer for a relaxing cooling effect and use them with their favorite moisturizer or serum to help the product really soak in. Plus, these can help with circulation and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Promising review: “I am so in LOVE with this product!!! I have never had a jade roller before and I recently saw some YouTube videos of girls using this and I might say I have to agree with their positive insights. The outer and inner packaging is beautiful!!! Very giftable presentation — I could totally see myself giving this as a gift. The roller glides smoothly on my face. I washed it with some dish soap before using, let it dry, added some face serum to my face, and then began rolling. I was pleasantly surprised at how cooling the jade felt against my skin. It was pretty relaxing! I used the larger roller for my forehead, cheeks, and neck. The smaller side for right under my eyes and on the side of my nose. I haven’t used the smaller scrapping jade stone yet so I can’t comment on that. After I am done, I wash it again and let it dry until I’m ready to use it again.” —Diana55

Price: $17.95



A copy of Strange Planet by Nathan W Pyle, because it’s full of funny, lighthearted comics that’ll put a smile on almost anyone’s face.


Promising review: “A perfect Christmas present for everyone on your list! This book is so funny! While the illustrations are very basic, the text is just hilarious, taking the simple in life and making it complex while wringing humor out of it. My favorite are the comics with cats. Everyone in my house LOVED this book.” —DisneyDenizen

Price: $8.99



A pair of luxe faux fur Jessica Simpson slippers perfect for your bestie, mom, grandma, or anyone who would enjoy walking around in these cute and cozy house shoes.,

Promising review: “First review that I’ve ever done right away. Man, I love these slippers. So comfy. So plush…so fluffy. I wanna order more for Christmas and also as a backup pair for when these go out in three years. Man, I heart these so much. I had my husband try them on and at first he was like, ‘I ain’t putting on girl shoes,’ but then he did…and let’s just say he didn’t want to take them off. If I can find a black pair…I bet he would rock them around the house.” —Joni

Price: $25.86 (available in sizes S—XL and four colors)


Promising review: “I would highly recommend this item. The price is more than fair for the quality. I bought this as a birthday gift for my daughter in November. She is still wearing it today. She takes showers with it, she plays while wearing it, she sleeps wearing it. It is dainty looking, but it has lasted a few months on my daughter, and I am very pleased. There are no signs of rusting or breaking. It is so nice to have an inexpensive but quality piece available to the public.” —Barbie

Price: $12.99 (available in A—Z)



A three speed vinyl record player with stereo speakers for the person on your list who is obsessed with music. This vintage style turntable can wirelessly play music from their phone as well as play seven-inch, 10-inch, or 12-inch vinyl records.

Promising review: “This turntable is of great quality, not just for the price. Works with different record sizes and speeds. It is a great first player with a full warm sound no matter the genre of music you are playing. Anything from Sublime, to vampire weekend, to Bruce Springsteen, it all has sounded great. The player itself is esthetically pleasing to the eye with a mid century mod look which we prefer. Happy with our order!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $59.99 (available in three designs)



A pair of humorous novelty socks that’ll make a great gift for a bacon lover, wine lover, taco lover, and more. Basically, these are an adorable add-on or stocking stuffer for pretty much anyone on your list.


Promising review: “Funny and well made. Got these for my lady friend, who funny enough drinks tea and wears socks. She loved the colors, the graphics and the material. Extra soft and comfortable. Highly recommend.” —Rick Baird

Price: $9.95+ (available in 11 designs)



A set of five succulent plants for your loved one with a green thumb or someone who is ready to become a plant parent. Each unique set is hand picked and comes fully rooted in two-inch pots.,

Plus, every purchase helps find homes for pets at risk of euthanasia. The company, Plants for Pets, has a mission to make its home city of Indianapolis a no-kill city for homeless dogs and cats.

Promising review: “I received my succulents sooner than expected. They survived well during shipping. Great quality and selection. I received six plants instead of five, plus some air plants for free! I’ve never seen air plants before so these are very cool! I didn’t realize this company also supports and pays for adoption fees for dogs and cats in shelters. Even more of a reason to purchase these plants! I’m very happy with my order and I will definitely be purchasing more when I have the funds!” —Amber J.

Price: $15.25 (set of five)



A custom Airpod case that’ll totally impress anyone who always has their Airpods in (and it’ll be especially useful if they always seem to be losing them).

Promising review: “Simply design, sturdy fit, and stylish without compromising the look of the AirPods. Neat purchase.” —Lunar

Price: $13.99 (usually takes 2–3 days to create; available in black, pink, or yellow font)



A microwavable lavender scented plush sloth to be the best cuddle buddy for anyone who needs one. When heated, this little guy can help soothw aches and pains and the lavender scent just makes it that much more relaxing.,

Promising review: “Bought him to help with my Endometriosis cramping. I’m so happy with my purchase! Not only is he cute, he is very soothing. He is weighted so he feels slightly heavy. When heated he is warm and smells oh so lovely of lavender. He works wonderful for cramps. I would also recommend him for children. He would make a great soothing companion. For a stuffed animal he seems to have lots of character/personality. Kudos to whomever designed this guy!” —Marie May

Price: $21.49



A set of four decorative natural soy wax candles scented with essential oils (rose, lavender, lemon, and Mediterranean fig) that are sure to look and smell lovely in anyone’s home.

Promising review: “This is the third time I have bought these candles and I will keep buying them. They smell great and I love the colors and the quality containers they come in. They are packaged in a box that is perfect for gift giving. I give them for birthday gifts, teacher gifts, and get well gifts. They are really good to give for any occasion. They burn really clean also which is what I also love about them. Just a really great candle for the price.” —Megan M. DeMeo

Price: $16.99 (available in seven set designs)



A collapsible microwave popcorn popper bowl guaranteed to improve anyone’s at-home movie night with a hassle-free popcorn experience.


Promising review: “I was REALLY skeptical about this thing when I first saw it on Amazon and read all the positive reviews. I thought there was just no way it could deliver perfectly popped and delicious popcorn from the microwave. I figured I would give it a try for myself since the price was very reasonable. I was shocked at how well this thing actually works. I just dump a half cup of popcorn into it without any oil at all, throw it in the microwave for a few minutes, and presto! I have perfectly popped and delicious popcorn. I would point out that you need to be very careful about not letting it pop for too long though. I’ve found that if you leave it cooking for even a few seconds too long, it will very quickly start to burn the popcorn.” —Master Obi Wan

Price: $15.90 (available in 17 colors)



A thoughtful fill-in-the-blank book to help you express all the little things you love about your mom. If you want a gift that’ll make her tear up, this is it! There are also options for your dad, bestie, grandparents, and more.


Promising review: “Great quality! Mom LOOOOVED it! I used this with those Sharpie pens so it wouldn’t smudge. Not sure how regular pen ink would fare. This book, once filled, melted my moms heart. If you want to make your mom really happy and feel loved, get her one of these!!!” —Anon

Price: $10 (available in 14 options)



A folding lap desk with storage for anyone who is always working on their computer, drawing, coloring, doing homework, and more. This handy gift can be used for many, MANY different needs, from breakfast in bed to doing work from their couch.


Promising review: “I bought these for my college age girls to use for studying at home. I love the storage space underneath the top, I added some surprise school supplies for them when I gave it to them. This lap desk is sturdy and folds up nicely for storage. I am seriously giving thought to purchasing a third one for my youngest daughter to do her homework on as well.” —Heather Burns

Price: $21.97



A fluffy vegan fur donut bed sure to make your pup or a loved ones’ fall fast asleep. Plus, it’ll actually look nice in the house.,

Promising review: “I have to say, I’m incredibly happy with this bed. I have a 6 month old beagle/hound mix and he absolutely loves it. Keeping him off the couch when we’re not in the living room was a bit of a challenge, but with this bed he has zero interest in going on any of the furniture unless it’s to lay with us. He sleeps in it all the time — he’s sleeping in it as I write this! Also, the bed is way more durable than I had expected. The pup loves to chew on soft things and he eats through his plush toys like they’re snacks. This bed has been super resistant to any tearing whatsoever — we’ve had it about a month now and it doesn’t have a single rip in it, though he has certainly tried. One last thing — so far we’ve had to wash it one time due to an accident. Not only was the mess contained in the bed, but it washed right out without wearing the bed at all. Cold water, gentle cycle and a low heat tumble dry — it came out just like new! I’d highly recommend this bed for anyone looking to get their pooch something comfy that will last.” —phillip sims

Price: $31.99+ (available in two colors and seven sizes and designs)



A pair of high-waisted leggings for the friend or sibling who lives in leggings. Trust me, they can never have too many!


Promising review: “THESE ARE THE BEST LEGGINGS EVERRR! Keep in mind these are thin so not recommended for winter, but not the bad cheap kind of thin. These are QUALITY AF! they make my butt look amazing, they feel great and I’ve never been more confident in leggings. GREAT for working out. I was afraid that since they were thinner they would show sweat, but they didn’t at all!” —Victoria munoz

Price: $12.98+ (available in sizes 2—12, 12—24, or 24—32 and 30 varieties of colors and quantities)



And a huge set of 24 organic bath bombs made with essential oil, shea butter, coconut oil, and grape seed oil that come in four lovely boxes of six and are individually wrapped so you can give the gift of a relaxing bath night to multiple people.,

Promising review: “These bath bombs are a great deal for the price. They smell amazing, come in attractive packaging (four boxes of six bath bombs that could be used as four gifts), and are very fizzy. The bath bombs are individually wrapped and the smell is not too strong through the packaging (you could store them somewhere or pack them in a suitcase without everything smelling like the bath bomb). The wrapping is easy to remove as they come with a little gold colored strip around them that makes peeling the plastic off easy. My household goes through a lot of bath bombs and these are by far the best we’ve used. They compete with expensive larger ones (like the ones at lush or Bath and Body Works) but are a much better price. I’ll continue purchasing these.” —Shawkins

Price: $24.69


Get excited, because you’re about to win at Christmas.
