GIFT GUIDE: Amazon for the WHOLE FAMILY!

Here comes Amazon, Here comes Amazon, right down my driveway! If you’re wanting to grab Amazon gifts for the whole family, today’s gift guide is for YOU. I shared Amazon gifts last year and it was a SMASH HIT with you, so we took this post and checked it twice to make sure everything was updated + relevant for some earlybird 2021 holiday shopping. Maybe it’s the fact that the year has been a hot mess express, but if you’re anything like me, you either a.) already have your Christmas shopping very much started, or b.) want to get it done STAT. For that running list of folks to shop for, this gift guide takes the cake since Amazon has everything and ships fast (thankyou Prime). Order ASAP to ensure fastest shipping (because ICYMI, the supply chain is a bit messed up right about now…).

SO, today we’re talking Amazon gifts for all! I’ve got four separate situations – for her, for him, for kids, AND for the whole fam (ie, more gender neutral gifts that would work for a few people on your list!). Everything is linked below its respective collage, and then I’ve got some callouts of specific highlights below that for any special notes/ideas to pass along! Here comes Amazon, Here comes Amazon, right down your driveway… πŸ˜‰

BEST AMAZON GIFTS FOR THE WHOLE FAM

  • Photo strip picture frame – is so unique – I haven’t found anything like it anywhere else. I was inspired to start hunting after seeing ALL THE PHOTO STRIPS from photo booths stuck to our fridge where, quite frankly, we ran out of magnets for them. HA. Comes in different colors/finishes – gift it empty or fill it with photostrips to gift already filled with memories!
  • Milk frother – is the best stocking stuffer for the coffee lover who craves a good at-home latte! It works SO well – I have one, my parents have one, my brother has one – the whole fam is stocked.
  • Brownie edges pan – would also be great for a Secret Santa or White Elephant exchange – if you’re like me, you’re really only here for the edges anyways. πŸ˜‰
  • Roomba – goes off at 5 am every single morning, and there’s really no greater feeling than coming downstairs to a freshly vacuumed floor.
  • Everything but the Bagel seasoning – An everything seasoning for every body!
  • Wireless ear buds – These are super highly rates and significantly cheaper than AirPods.
  • Dark chocolate Boom Chicka Pop – Soooooo yum.
  • Nest thermostat – We have Nests throughout our house and they’re easy to set and forget!
  • Keurig latte machine – We loveloveloooooove ours – it’s especially great being able to make a regular coffee or mix it up with a latte when you’re feeling fancy!
  • Dyson vacuum – SUCH A TREAT, Santa take notes. πŸ˜‰
  • Ancestry DNA kit – A DNA test is a surprisingly personal gift – and a neat way to learn more about yourself and/or your family history. J did one a few years back and was surprised at how much he took away from it!
  • Headphone cord organizer – For not even 6 bucks, this device eliminates all pesky headphone wires and cords – because ain’t nobody got time.
  • Shower/bath wine glass holder – I mean…totally clutch. πŸ˜‰ Also makes a great White Elephant option!
  • Heated massage pillow – I MEAN, ALSO CLUTCH. My dad borrowed mine before starting physical therapy because it gives great relief for back pain, etc.
  • 5lb bag of Sour Patch Kids – Who doesn’t need 5 pounds of blue Sour Patch kids?
  • Acrylic easel display – I lovelovelove this little easel; I got it as a chic, discreet helper by the stove to hold my phone if I’m FaceTiming while cooking. It also holds a tablet size device, though, or can prop up a book, and the little nobs are adjustable. A more unique gift idea to help the person always multitasking in the kitchen!
  • Nerd Gummy Clusters – These should really be in EVERYBODY’S stocking this year.
  • Simple Modern tumbler – THE CUP – only the best cup on Planet Earth. I won’t talk your ear off about it *yet again* because IYKYK. πŸ˜‰
  • 5lb bag of Gummy Bears – If 5 pounds of Sour Patch ain’t yo’ thang, maybe 5 pounds of gummy bears will do the trick?
  • Christmas rolling pin – A fun, unique idea for the baker – how fun is this rolling pin?!
  • Christmas candle – This soy candle smells like Christmas in a jar!
  • Phone/tablet stand – A super handy one for the always-connected person. Whether they’re FaceTiming or Zooming or Instagram storying they’ll be set with this handy dandy stand!

 

BEST AMAZON GIFTS FOR HER

for her

NOTE: All but 5 of the products in the collage are things I already own myself and just pulled favorites from my past orders as Amazon gift recommendations. So you know they’re tried + true!

  • Clear lipstick caps for MAC lipsticks – are great for the beauty lover who already owns half of Sephora but needs something new + useful in her stocking that’s not just another product with an expiration date.
  • Leopard beanie – is SO soft – it almost feels like the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic circle cardigans, but on your head and for under $20.
  • Pajama set – are favorites in my own jammies drawer – they feel JUST like a popular $50 pair from Nordstrom, but for half the price! Would also be great for new mamas who might be nursing since it’s button-down.
  • Human + Kind body lotion – is on Amazon – it’s vegan + cruelty-free + natural and smells DIVINE. I actually learned about it from YOU guys over on Instagram – I mentioned it being in my FabFitFun box and got SO many messages of people saying OMG that’s my favorite lotion!!! Well same y’all, same.
  • Microwaveable poochies – I gifted my mom these (aka slippers) a few years ago and she still loveloveloves ’em! Perfect random gift for the gal who gets cold feet at night and can’t sleep that way.
  • Light-up vanity mirror – is the perfect splurge when it comes to best Amazon gifts – it lets you see ALL THE THINGS, for better or worse. πŸ˜‰ Truly the best lighting for flawless makeup application! (I have mine on top of my IKEA vanity setup, with Alex drawers and a tabletop).
  • Lululemon lookalike leggings – an affordable, buttery-soft legging that’s functional, practical, + works for everyday. I own 4 pairs – buy her one, too! (FYI they’re my favorite alternative to Lululemon’s famous Align pant – under $30 versus $98. I own both so can speak to that firsthand – here’s a side-by-side comparison review!)
  • Acrylic jewelry tray – I’ve been going through a lot of my stuff to purge (bless up), and in doing so, came across – I loveloveLOVE. It’s been so good for reorganizing all of my daintier pieces in one place in a really simple, pretty way!
  • Barefoot Dreams socks -Perfect stocking stuffer. The BD feel without the bigger pricetag. Bless up.
  • Pearl hoop earrings – Always pretty in pearls! A classic gift for the classic gal.
  • Suede moto jacket – I’ve had this jacket for *years* and it still looks + feels brand new – it wears exceptionally well. A really, really high quality piece for her, and a true wardrobe staple!
  • Collapsible silicone coffee cup – A fun little stocking stuffer idea – aren’t you just suuuuper curious to see this thing in action??
  • Laneige lip mask – The absolute best overnight lip treatments. A little bit goes a long way, too, so they last awhile!
  • Mom Mode sweatshirt – For the mamas!
  • Airpod case cover – Refresh her tech for not even $7 – I have this case in light pink and it’s surprisingly durable for the price. 
  • Memory foam slippers – The best thing about these slippers is their sole. Memory foam!
  • Wrist key ring – A MUST for any woman with her hands full. I couldn’t function without mine.
  • Plush pullover – For not even $30, this pullover is such a cute gift idea. I lovelovelove mine and am always asked about it when I wear it – perfect for throwing on with leggings for a cozy winter day!
  • Yogalicious leggings – Another way to get the Lululemon legging look/feel for less – and another favorite pair of mine!
  • Oribe Texture spray – This stuff is GOOOOOD. It gives a great amount of volume + texture. Little did I know, it also apparently helps with oil like dry shampoo does…like what?! Game changer. I lovelovelove it and always have it on stock in my drawer.
  • RFID blocking wallet – The #1 bestselling wallet on Amazon with 35,000+ 5-star reviews! It’s got RFID blocking technology which prevents hackers or thiefs from stealing your credit card information in passing.
  • Blue light blocking glasses – Always on my face, always on the list. A great gift for the gal always on her phone or laptop!
  • Caffeinate Your Soul: 52 Monday Mantras – CYS is full of a year’s worth of encouragement to help make your Mondays more manageable + meaningful. It’s rooted in faith with real, tactical tips for starting your week strong and maintaining momentum all year long. If you’ve got some ladies on your list who lovelovelove ongoing personal development, care about growth, or just might appreciate a pickmeup amidst a crazy year as we head into a new one, I’d humbly recommend grabbing them a copy! Whether it’s girlfriends on your list, a sister, mother-in-law, kids’ teachers or the girls from Bible study, it’s written to uplift and energize, just like any good cuppa coffee should. πŸ˜‰

CAFFEINATE YOUR SOUL: 52 Monday Mantras - inspiring new personal development book

  • The cup that’s better than a Yeti – It’s THE CURowd cup at this point, folks – a weekly bestseller amongst readers for good reason. It’s also the #1 Bestselling travel mug/tumbler on Amazon, which speaks volumes. Comes with TWO leak-free interchangeable lids (one for hot drinks, one with a straw for cold), and legit keeps your ice frozen ALL. DANG. DAY. They constantly sell out so add to cart ASAP!

  • A scalp massager for shampoo day – Seriously. Coming to a Cool Sh*t I Lovelovelove post near you soon. WHAT A TREAT. Might seem like a weird stocking stuffer at first, but I now can’t live without mine. So just thank me later. πŸ˜‰
  • 9-square picture frame – I framed a handful of selects from our family photos in this and it turned out BEAUTIFUL!
  • Amazon’s #1 bestselling mascara – It’s not even 5 bucks! This is the one I’ve showed + shared side-by-side to a $27 “designer” mascara and it’s just as good if not BETTER (better according to your votes on it on Instagram Stories!).

  • Brazilian Bum Bum cream – What a TREAT for her bum bum…and really, everywhere else. This stuff smells *incredible* and I put it all over my body hahaha. Beyond being a hydrating lotion, it works to tighten your skin, so it’s great anywhere she wants to “firm up” a bit more. A true treat!
  • Skincare fridge – Another one for the skincare lover – grab her the ice roller, too, and put it inside the fridge to gift!
  • Blueberry scrub – Because this just sounds yummy.
  • At-home gel polish kit – For the girl who doesn’t always have time to hit the salon – bring the salon look to her!

  • GPS drone -HOW COOL is this tho?! I lowkey want one for myself justbecause.
  • Luxury gel pillows – We just got these ourselves and WOW, SO GOOD. They’re the #1 bestselling pillows on Amazon. I’m SO picky with bed pillows and J is reasonably picky with them, too, and we both lovelovelove these. No neck pain, perfectly molds to your body – so good!

  • Old Fashioned glass set – If he likes his whiskey neat…I have no idea how that technically correlates to this, but it sounds about right.
  • Putting green – Luckily, I’m doubting J will read this far down the list. πŸ˜‰ Got this for his office this year so that he can practice his put put while on conference calls. 
  • Simple Modern team tumbler – It’s THE CUP, but in tumbler form with the ability to get his team on it. I mean, a man no brainer.

You can use on your feet or have it up on your calves, and it’s a legit massage. No weird vibrations or less-than-comfortable pulsations. J wasn’t sold at first but I convinced him to try and now we have to take turns while watching our shows together – ha!

 

BEST AMAZON GIFTS FOR KIDS

NOTE: I was specifically looking for around Olivia’s age and younger – it’s like the baby/toddler/preschool-age selection of Amazon gifts, although some definitely will be used for years to come!

  • Otitis – One of my very best friends wrote this children’s book about her own special needs cat – it’s the sweetest story, the cat is the funniest in real life, + I lovelovelove supporting her so pick up a copy for any kid on your list! It’s the sweetest story about inclusion + finding your family in life. πŸ™‚
  • Mega blocks – Olivia has these and loveloveloves building with them – will last them for years, from first practicing with fine motor skills to intentionally building princess castle!
  • Musical toy –  was a hand-me-down to her from our neighbor’s kid and she’s SO into it – she bounces up and down to Mozart like she’s at the club. It’s hilarious – but I like that it’s classical music and not just the rinky tink stereotypical “baby music,” if that makes sense! It’s the #1 Best Sellers on Amazon for musical baby toys and has over 11,000 4.5+ star reviews if that tells you anything, and it’s under 10 bucks!
  • Ball popper toy – A #1 bestseller with tons of 5-star reviews!
  • Science board book set – Because “quantum physics for babies” LOL
  • Activity center – EVERY baby needs a jumper like this – they get so much use out of them AND it keeps them from crawling off a cliff! Bless up!
  • Sit ‘n Spin – A Sit n’ Spin is always a win.
  • Wooden block sorting toy – Great for building dexterity, shape and color identification, etc.
  • Star projector – Fun for the older toddlers as they get into space, stars, etc.
  • Baby’s First Bible Stories gift set – Another #1 bestseller! Liv has always loveloveloved this set – we rotate each book in and out of our church bag for her!
  • Learning splash pad – Aaaaaand another #1 bestseller! This is a cute little inflatable splash pad for the yard that connects to your hose. It’s got cute animals + numbers on it and we kicked off two summers ago with it – Liv had a ball.
  • Mold-free bathtub boat toy – After you hear of the horrors that can (+ do) grow inside those cute little bath toys that squirt water since they can (+ do) end up harboring water inside of them and then…growing mold. Nasty. This is dishwasher safe + mold-free and great for motor skills during tubby time!
  • Play makeup – Gifted this to Liv last year! It’s a great play set.
  • 12 pack of little girl bracelets – Great especially if you have a few little girls on your list and want to break them up as stocking stuffers! I have been gifting Liv a set of three once in awhile as a fun little treat and she’s SO into accessorizing now.
  • Absolutely loveloveLOVE this Montessori alphabet-learning game/tool – It holds Olivia’s attention so well! You can match letters or numbers into slightly indented/pegged cards that have a corresponding animal on them. Great colors, great feel.
  • Wand – My fairy godmother prop from our Cinderella family costume this Halloween – which just so happens to make a great magic wand for the OG now. πŸ˜‰
  • Pointer – Inspired by Liv’s preschool “calendar helper” game, which she likes to re-enact whenever possible.
  • Little girl rings – Did you SEE how Liv reacted to these on my Instagram Stories?!? I mean, the girl’s obsessed with accessorizing. This is such a cute multi-pack!
  • Cutie Fruities and the Fruits of the Spirit – This book is ADORABLE. It’s got great illustrations, great message, and scratch-and-sniff, so basically the trifecta for little girls.
  • Flower sunglasses – 8 fun sunnies for not even $18 – a steal. These are SO cute – they’re the ones Liv is always wearing!
  • See & Spell – I cannot recommend this enough for learning sight words and early spelling. I kid you not, the OG is SPELLING WORDS at three years old thanks to this thing! We cover up any pictures, too, to really make sure she’s learning sight words and not just relying on the pictures, and it WORKS!
  • Goodtimer – Just got her this, too – it’s a positive reinforcement and time management tool for 3-10 year olds.
  • Baby doll – HOW CUTE IS SHE THOUGH?!
  • Pogo stick – OK SO Liv got a pogo stick for her birthday…her hand eye coordination is getting there. LOL. I have a feeling when she masters it, WATCH OUT WORLD.
  • Crocs – Truly a lifesaver to avoid soggy wocks or muddy shoes…crocs are our go-to for spring/summer especially since they’re so easy on/off and so easy to clean!
  • Slippers – HOW PRECIOUS?! I want these in my size! Another top seller from Amazon with sooo many color/print options and great no-slip functionality.
  • Stick-on earrings – Going in Liv’s stocking this year…sssh, don’t tell. πŸ˜‰
  • Makeup – For the 4-5 year olds begging for makeup like mommy’s…
  • Flower garden – This will keep their attention and inspire collaboration between siblings, too. Or so they say – ha! Liv got one for her birthday! Spans age ranges nicely.
