Well, damn 2019. You flew by fast and and suddenly it’s the holiday season. I feel like this happens every year. I mind my own business and do my own thing and next thing you know, I find myself in a mad dash trying to lock down the best gifts I can find, but like, ideally with Amazon Prime shipping?
While I love the get togethers with friends and family, and many, many birthday celebrations (all of my close friends and family have birthdays in December, so hello double duty), that means there is shopping to be done. And not just any type of shopping. I take pride in gifting the perfect gift. That means something high-quality and thoughtful (and something I can get shipped to me ASAP). I don’t always find time to go shopping with my hectic schedule, but if I can sit comfortably on my couch and click away and then in a matter of no time my holiday shopping is done, that’s a win.
So with that in mind, I rounded up my favorite (super perfectionist) gifts for even hard-to-buy folks in your life, all with Prime shipping. Let’s go shopping!
Amazon Prime Holiday Gift Guide
For the amateur chef: In full disclosure, I’m obsessed with Bon Appétit’s YouTube channel. It makes people with minimal cooking skills (like me) feel like they know WTF they’re doing when they get in the kitchen. Carla Lalli Music is one of my favorite chefs on the channel, and her simple recipes are sure to inspire the most amateur of home chefs.
For the boss babe: Stylish and functional, count me in. Instead of leaving hairpins in random bags and pockets, Pretty Useful makes super chic keychains you can hide your gilded pins in.
For the minimalist: Y’all, this gift is fancy. But let’s call it minimal fancy. Who wouldn’t mind this design forward chess set on their coffee table?
For the Star Wars fan: Death Star ice mold. Need I say more?
For the fashionista: Suede jackets are a classic wardrobe staple. And if maroon isn’t your color, don’t fret. They have nine other colors to choose from!
For your homesick friend: When your friend (or family member) can’t make it home for the holidays, send them one of these state candles that embodies the scent of home.
For the nostalgist: Make #tbt happen IRL with a portable photo printer that can print your pics directly from your phone, no instant camera needed.
For the bougie picnicker: Companies have been making cooler backpacks for a long time, but are they all this pretty? Definitely not.
For the mini fashionista: Clogs are very in right now. Take it one step further with leopard print and you’ve got a winning combo. (Bonus points for buying from a womxn-owned company and friend of APW.)
For the homebody: When you’re not sure if they’d be into the idea of a weighted blanket, so you go for the warm and chic one instead.
For the beauty product obsessed: Sometimes you just need to gift the gold standard. In this case, the Oribe dry styling collection.
For the globe trotter: With a statement pattern like this, this isn’t your average weekender bag. One part fun and one part functional and you have the best of both worlds.
For the imaginative child (or adult): What happens when you take a classic toy and add glitter and mirrors? You get these awesome magnetic tiles to create any structure a kid could dream of. Parents in my life swear by this… and so do their kids.
For the unseasoned influencer: It seems like everyone these days is all about video series on YouTube (adults and kids included), and now it’s so easy to start your own. All you need is a cellphone and a tripod stand!
For the kitchen renovator: Your friend that’s remodeling their kitchen, this is for them. Have spice grinders ever looked so cool? I don’t think so.
For the plant parent: Indoor plants are all the rage right now, but the one thing no one talks about? How to care for all those different types of plants. Darryl Chang‘s new book is finally here and I’m sure your plant parent friend has been waiting to get their hands on this.
For the 80s Obsessed: They say everything comes back around, right? We’re loving this modern take on terrazzo print on these vases from Jonathan Adler.
For the nature enthusiast: Stick this acrylic bird feeder on any window at your house and bring nature closer than ever without bringing the outside in.
For the outdoor adventurer: Fun for kids and adults, this 3D kite is sure to bring back some fond childhood memories.
For the DIY-er: Hand lettering is all over the internet right now, and the final product is downright gorgeous. Give the gift of someone’s new favorite hobby or be the gateway to their new side hustle!
For the pasta purist: When The Proper Way means homemade and nothing else.
For the eco-friendly: Pack a reusable bag (or three), but make it fashion.
For those who like it hot: If you’re like me and there’s nothing you loathe more than room temperature coffee, Ember has an answer to your problem. A minimal temperature control mug that you can control with your phone.
What’s the gift your most excited to give this year? (Bonus points for fast shipping. It’s already December, y’all.)
