If going to the mall during the holidays drove you nuts before 2021, then Amazon Prime will save your soul now more than ever. 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 picks on Amazon Prime to add to your cart now.
Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case
Few tech gadgets, if any, look as suave as AirPods. Of all the headphones carried on Amazon, these remain the #1 best-selling pair (no exaggeration), and for a limited time only, they’re currently on sale.
Classic Greek Pythian Apollo Bust Statue
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 with eclectic taste won’t see this gift coming, but they’ll love it.
7/8 Jogger Travel Pants
Editor’s note: I own these joggers and am in love with them. What first sold me on these was that reviewers mentioned how similar these are to Lululemon’s On The Fly jogger, which cost about three times more. Fast forward to me owning 4 pairs and recently FaceTiming with my grandma who was rocking her own pair as well. A great gift for any woman who likes comfortable, flattering pants.
SOKO Women’s Fanned Stacking Rings
Women-founded and sustainably sourced, SOKO makes some of the coolest, vintage-feeling costume jewelry around. Their pieces are handcrafted by artisans Kenya who use recycled brass, upcycled horns and traditional techniques.

14k Gold Three Diamond Amigos Curve Post Earrings
If these diamond curve post earrings look familiar, it’s because Meghan Markle wears them on repeat. To give you a sense of just how versatile these beauties are, the Duchess wore these to Commonwealth Day 2018, throughout her and Harry’s Royal Tour of Australia, and numerous royal engagements in London.
Polaroid Pop Instant 3×4 Photo Printer & Digital Camera
Being able to hold photos of special moments hits different. Polaroid’s wireless Pop Instant camera is a game-changer for making it possible to take, preview, edit and print 3.5 x 4.25 photos. The easily transportable device also offers WiFi connectivity, so users can upload their pictures straight to the ‘gram if they please.
June’s Boy Smells Candle
Capturing the joy of strolling around Austin’s South Congress Avenue and late nights spent in the city’s famed June’s Wine Bar, this Boy Smells candle is a cozy choice. Scent notes include bergamot, cassis, anise, coriander, daffodils and tonka.

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.
14k Yellow Gold 2mm Tube Polished Round Hoop Earrings, 25mm (1 inch Diameter)
Ocean Mist & Sea Salt Candle
With notes of sea salt, white tea, and coconut, this ocean mist-scented candle is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. (Something that can’t be said for most candles out there.)
Sherpa and Fleece Throw Blanket
Sherpa on one side and plush on the other, this reviewer-loved throw blanket measures 50×60 inches, which means it’s large enough for two to comfortably snuggle during Netflix nights.

Serving sleek looks, crystal clear sound quality and long battery life (13 hours!), Bose’s Revolve speaker is certain to enhance any audio experience. Portable and waterproof, your loved one will be able to enjoy their 360 degree sound wherever they please.

Moleskine Limited Collection Denim Notebook
There’s something inherently thoughtful about gifting someone a notebook. Moleskin’s leather options are a classic choice, but if you’re after something a bit more fun and more affordable, look to their limited edition denim collection.
Microwave Heating Pad for Back and Shoulder Comfort
If you can’t give your loved one a hug IRL this holiday, send them a microwavable heating pad that feels like a warm hug. Wrapped in a soft, machine-washable fleece, this multi-use heating pad can be used to soothe tired and aching muscles (making it a gift that’ll keep on giving!).

Eberjey is practically synonymous with great pajamas. Made from modal and spandex jersey (no polyester!), these PJs are breathable, ridiculously soft and hot sleeper-friendly. Unlike cheaper options out there, you can be sure these will last for years to come.
Power Workout Leggings in Black
To give you a sense of how beloved British brand Sweaty Betty’s power leggings are, one pair has sold every 90 seconds this year. (Editor’s note: I own these and don’t stop talking about how I think they’re the most comfortable and flattering leggings of all time.) New to Amazon Prime, these are still in stock in every size at the time of publication.

This dark and milk chocolate gift set from Whole Foods-carried brand Chuao Chocolatier contains innovative flavors the chocolate lover in your life won’t be expecting. Think: potato chip, honeycomb, salted chocolate crunch and more.
Flex Wireless Earphones
I obtained a pair of the latest Beats (the brand’s most affordable headphones to date) for testing a few months back and haven’t stopped using them since. Delivering crystal clear sound, 12 hours of battery life, and a rapid fast charge, these bluetooth wireless headphones are overall better than headphones I’ve spent at least 4x more on over the years.
Le Specs. Air Heart Sunglasses
If these glamorous and slightly oversized sunnies look familiar it’s because Meghan Markle sported this exact pair during her 2019 baby shower. Shoppers, note that these fan-favorite shades have a track record for selling out fast.
