If going to the mall during the holidays drove you nuts before 2020, then Amazon Prime will save your soul now more than ever before. Where else can you buy a wool Mackage coat, a sculpted bust of a greek god, a cardboard turntable for cats, and toilet paper? From the comfort of your couch. Naked.

Because there are millions of choices on Amazon and going through the results for even a single inquiry can be exhausting, we went through tens of thousands of items and put together a definitive list of the best gifts you can shop this year with Prime. Our non-negotiable criteria? Items had to be unique, high-quality, practical or chic, because nobody has time for anything else these days. Below, our top 49 picks on Amazon Prime to add to your cart now.

Scented Candle, France



Transport the Francophile you love to the promise land of baguettes, cobblestoned roads and boutiques through this France-scented candle. The scent profile is vanilla with subtle notes of tobacco and lavender.

14k Yellow Gold Hoop Earrings

Tilo Jewelry


Gold hoops go with everything and somehow always feel cool wearing. Here, a 14k gold pair made in the US that won’t slim down your holiday shopping budget. 

Reversible Grey Zebra Bathmat

Jonathan Adler


$60.12 (32% off)

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side… Not when you’re getting out of the tub though. That’s dangerous in an ER-kind of way. Anyway, here’s a cute, dryer-friendly bathmat. 

Sherpa Trucker Jacket



Levi’s sherpa jackets have been worn by every fashion girl from Gigi Hadid to Zendaya. The denim staple is not only a godsend for complicated transitional temps, but a cozy piece to throw on at home.

Apollo Bust Sculpture

Good Buy Gifts

Nothing subtly says ‘I’m an Intellectual’ louder than having a decorative bust of a Greek god on display in one’s home. Your loved one won’t see this gift coming, but they’ll love it all the same.

Sally Mock Neck Pointelle Sweater

ASTR the label


A daydream of a sweater. The ruffled mock neck details will make any outfit look more Danish. 

Leather Touchscreen Texting and Driving Gloves



If you’re bougie on a budget, check out these Italian cashmere-lined leather gloves which boast over 1.7k ratings. As one reviewer put it: “They are great, and actually fit very well. Beautifully packaged. Could be a gift but I am keeping them!” 

10k Gold Swarovski Crystal Pearl Birthstone Ring

Amazon Collection


To my left, a 10k gold birthstone ring with certified Swarovski crystals. Not only does this gift look far more expensive than its price tag, its birthstone element adds a personalized touch. 

990 V5 Sneaker

New Balance


Few dad sneakers are more iconic or podiatrist-loved than New Balance’s 990 V5 sneaker. (Yes, this is the sneaker you’ve been seeing all over Instagram since quarantine.) Zoe Kravitz, Kaia Gerber and Rosie Huntington-Whitely are just a few of the celebs who’ve been photographed by the ‘paps wearing the chunky anti-It shoe this year. 

Women’s Natural Lace Trim Vest

Iris & Lilly


White tank tops have defined Tik Tok-era fashion more than any other article of clothing. Gift a set for the culture. 

Foil Printed Tall Band Leggings



Editor’s note: I’m normally not one to drop $100 on leggings, or anything really, but I have to say these are the most comfy and flattering leggings I’ve ever owned. Their camo design and foiled texture simply look (and feel) more pulled together than regular black leggings. 

Esplar Low Sneakers



White leather sneakers defined the last decade in fashion and aren’t going away anytime soon. Gift her the pair from Teja, the sustainable brand she’s been trying to track down in her size these last few months.

Vague Shoulder Bag



They say the best gifts are the ones you’d want for yourself. Elleme’s 90s-feeling shoulder bag is proof in leather form.

Nori-K Coat



Kindly sidestep the puddle of drool that formed while I gazed at this wool coat. That leather waist belt! The removable bib (!!!). The feminine silhouette that doesn’t sacrifice warmth! She’ll love this because how could anybody not?

Tie Dye Sweatpants



Don’t knock yourself if your quarantine tie-dye project didn’t turn out this cool. These sweats make for a cozy, practical gift that she won’t want to exchange.

Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker

House of Marley


Made from bamboo with House of Marley’s signature Rewind fabric (a blend of hemp, recycled bottles and organic cotton), these eco-friendly bluetooth speakers deliver equally impressive sound and style. As one reviewer wrote: ”I’m a music major and I use this to practice with orchestra backing… Sound quality is amazing across the board. You can hear every voice in the orchestra, but is not too bass heavy for Drake and Post Malone.”

Kitty Espresso Coffee Maker



$47.52 (21% off)

Stainless steel espresso coffee makers don’t get any chicer than the Bialetti Kitty.  

Enameled Cast Iron Signature Dutch Oven

Le Creuset


Le Creuset is the gold standard of cookware and their dutch ovens are the lightest on the market. Here, the legendary brand’s signature enameled cast iron Dutch Oven in a gradient motif that brings to mind sunsets and Prada’s fall-winter 2018 collection.

Pom Pom Apron

Royal Jelly Harlem


This apron is so fashionable, the chef in your life might be tempted to wear it even when they’re not cooking up a feast. 

The Original Mini Maker

BoostIQ RoboVac 15C MAX

eufy by Anker


It’s hard to come by a list of best robot vacuums online (written by experts who actually tested hundreds of models) where eufy’s RoboVac 15C MAX isn’t included as a budget-friendly mention. The RoboVac 15C MAX has wifi and Alexa voice connectivity, which makes it easy breezy to set up and use. Reviewers love how it delivers an impressive clean with strong suction and self-charges after a clean. 

Table Tiles



There’s no such thing as too many coasters, though there is such thing as really tacky coasters. Trust me, I went through over 200 before finding this cool geometric set. These have a cork-lined base which further helps to protect furniture.

Speechless Polarized Sunglasses

Le Specs


For $71, this flattering polarized pair of sunnies is a steal.

The Rihanna Book

Phaidon Press

Men’s Figaro Chain Necklace


In case you’re still thinking about how hot Connell’s chain was in Normal People. Same.

Grand Court Sneaker



If you’re shopping for a boyfriend who’s an amazing person but just not the best dresser, start with his shoes. Prince Harry has been photographed in a similar pair (Sdidas’s Gazelle trainer) in a similar grey, suede color on countless occasions. This color looks sharp with everything.

Scuff Slipper



Gift a good man in your life the slippers he’d never treat himself to that will change his life. (Or at the very least, keep his toes warm for all winter long.) 

Sierra Peak Jacket



Despite being lightweight and easily packable, this jacket’s detailed sleeves and tailored fit render it a sharp and timeless piece.

Peppermint Foot Cream



Footnanny was one of Oprah’s Favorite Things  back in 2018, though the foot-care brand is loved by many, many more. This travel-sized cream helps with repairing and soothing feet, which isn’t sexy, but important and too often neglected.

DiamondClean Classic Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

Philips Sonicare

Pet Cardboard Turntable & DJ Mixer

Suck UK


$26.92 (23% off)

For the cat person who loves a good RAC remix. To quote an epic review on Amazon: “By 9pm, DJ Kitty was in beast mode as the rave kicked off in the living room. As the sun came up, DJ Kitty refused to part with the deck… Yes, a bit expensive for [sic]carboard, but we are considering selling tickets to the next show to make up the difference.”

Foam Roller

Trigger Point Performance
