    24 Products On Amazon That'll Make Perfect Gifts

    A book of pep talks from Lin-Manuel Miranda, an adorable instant camera, a compact air fryer, and more gifts for everyone on your list!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Amazon has a list of its "Most Gifted" products, so you can creep on the gift ideas of other users everywhere (or, you know, use them as inspiration for your own gifting needs).

    Here are some of the coolest products from that list this week:

    1. A Fujifilm Instax camera to help them capture special moments with a hint of nostalgia and a ton of instant gratification.

    Amazon

    Takes 2 AA batteries (included), and has a selfie mirror and macro lens adapter for close-ups. My friend has this and it's so fun to use!

    Promising review: "I got this for a Christmas gift and it was awesome. It's a great faded pink color. The quality/brightness of the picture is hard to predict at times, but overall I enjoy this so much! One of my friends took a picture with it and the picture came out dark and I did the same picture and it was perfect. Not sure if the picture was exposed to much before it developed, but that's my only complaint. It's not going to be a perfect digital quality, but it gives your picture an old fashion style. It also comes with batteries! I would watch a YouTube video after you get it to figure out how it works though." —Reviewer

    Price: $56 (available in five colors)

    Pssst! Or get them a kit with the camera and a ton of accessories for $118.95.

    2. A Marauder's Map tapestry blanket they can curl up underneath once all their mischief's managed.

    Amazon

    There are also versions of each Hogwarts house and the Tri Wizard cup in case their house is a Harry Potter house divided! Measures 48"x60" so it's perfect for wall hanging or draping on a full sized bed. Machine-washable.

    Promising review: "My niece nearly cried she was so excited. The Slytherin crest is beautiful. The quality of the throw is great and feels like it can take the abuse of a teenager using it on a daily basis. Awesome throw blanket for the price." —Amanda

    Price: $20.79+ (available in eight styles)

    3. A WATERPROOF Kindle — it'll keep your best-read friend busy with an endless supply of great reads, even on their next tropical vacay. Or just the tub!

    Amazon

    It's the thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet with a glare-free display that reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight. (Bye, eye strain!) A single battery charge lasts weeks. The built-in adjustable light lets you read indoors and outdoors, day and night. And let me reiterate, it's waterproof!

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for someone's birthday who loves to read and she travels a lot. Now she doesn't have to carry her books. She loves it when she can download any books she wants to read." —moondsb

    Price: $129.99

    4. Gmorning, Gnight!, a book packed with pep talks from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda (and charming illustrations) that could be *just* the thing for someone when they're feeling a bit blah.

    Amazon

    Yes I love him. No I will not apologize for it. Yes I am thrilled for the new Mary Poppins Returns with him in it!!! Someone plz buy me this for Christmas. Thanks!

    Promising review: "I expected nothing except delightful wordplay from Lin-Manuel Miranda, but between the genuine feeling of being seen and understood that these little pep-talks give the reader and the humorous, perfectly-suited illustrations by Jonny Sun, Gmorning, Gnight! is one of those books that I'll read over and over again. I pre-ordered and received my copy today...and I'm not ashamed or surprised that I finished it in one sitting. Please buy a copy for yourself, your friends, or whomever the heck in your life or on the subway who needs a smile. So happy." —Rachel

    Price: $10.08+

    5. A digital air fryer to help them cut down on the fat of fried foods (if they care about that), or just avoid the awful fried food smell that lingers around the house.

    Amazon

    Compact and lightweight design with five presets and one manual setting. Has a 2-quart setting that'll make 12 chicken wings, 1 lbs. of French fries, and even baked goods within minutes of setting the timer!

    Promising review: "I have always been afraid of deep fryers and hot oil cooking. I even returned a deep fryer I got one Christmas and got a pizza oven instead. Not to mention the smell that never seems to leave your home after using a deep fryer. This air fryer is a game changer for me. No hot oil, no permeating smells, compact, and easy to use. This definitely has a permanent spot on my counter. Healthy fried food? Yes please! The color is great and I'm not afraid to use this fryer." —Abs

    Price: $49.99+ (available in five colors)

    6. A weighted blanket — it can feel like a comforting embrace when you can't give them one IRL.

    Amazon

    Choose the blanket that weighs about 10% of your body weight plus one, 5 lbs. weight is intended for individuals weighing about 40 lbs., etc. It's supposed to go on the top of the mattress and should not go over the edges of bed; so if you give it to a children or senior, make sure the individual has enough strength to move the blanket off themselves if necessary.

    Promising review: "This is suuuuuch an amazing product! I got this for as a Christmas gift for someone who suffers from anxiety, and the occasional spell of insomnia. They had never heard of the benefits of a weighted blanket, and were so intrigued once they felt the weight draped over their body. It just feels like a very nice bear hug and really does seem to help calm down their overactive brain. Additionally this still breathes nicely, and doesn't make you feel over heated when you sleep under this at night. The blanket is slightly cumbersome at night if you're sleeping under sheets with this over it, as it doesn't allow for as much movement — but that really only takes a few days to get used to." —Tizzie

    Price: $62.90+ (available in several sizes and colors)

    7. A 16-pack of K-beauty sheet masks to give to one (v lucky) person, or split up amongst a group for some lazy pampering!

    Amazon

    I have these masks at home and they're easy to use. They're papery thin but soaked with vitamin E and collagen for moisturizing effects and a cool, refreshign feel.

    Promising review: "God I absolutely love these face masks. They’re so cheap and work just as well as something I could get at Sephora or Ulta." —That sparkly thing

    Price: 16 for $10.99 (available in other number combos)

    8. Pet grooming gloves that'll give your fur bb a nice love *and* deshedding session. Win-win for adults and animals alike!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I bought these for my mom for Christmas last year because she swears our family dog Hank sheds everywhere. (He's also the same color as our furniture so I can't tell but she swears he does!)

    Promising review: "We love it and so does Cat! We were brushing him almost every day with a mitt that looks similar to these gloves but we wouldn't get much off of him. So impressed. As long as Cat is on a thin carpet he can hang onto we can go to town on him and he loves it. We show him a glove and he'll run to the carpet to get brushed. He'll even go lay down and rub his face on them. Having two gloves that have adjustable straps at the wrist to keep them on makes it easy to brush him everywhere and use a good amount of pressure." —Gina Anderson

    Price: $13.86+ (available in three colors)

    9. A soft squeaker duck that the biggest and teeniest of dogs are sure to adore.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this duck, and so does my sweet old pitty, Tito. He likes it so much, that he has managed to hide it from his dog bros and sis very well. He has access to a not-so-very-huge backyard, which I have thoroughly searched, to no avail. So I ordered another duck, and tried to keep an eye on where he was taking it. Within 2 days, the replacement duck was also MIA. Another long search by both me and my bf. No duck(s). Ditto Duck #3. So. I have just ordered a fourth. I reckon at some point there will be such a large pile of big yellow ducks that hiding them will be impossible. I will win this battle. The only question is how many ducks I will have to buy before Tito's super secret hiding place is exposed...." —L. Wierenga

    Price: $8.66 or two for $14.99

    10. A colorful Dutch oven — it'll come in handy for so many picturesque meals you can help them eat. Naturally.

    Amazon

    Made of heavy-duty cast iron for thorough, even heating and optimal cooking performance. Hand-wash only.

    Promising review: "Excellent value... I have Le Creuset and Staub pieces... this is so close it's hard to think about buying a much more expensive options simply for making stock, braising, etc. Looks very nice, too." —knb53

    Price: $35.28+ (available in four colors and three sizes)

    11. An Instant Pot cookbook in case the recipient has every last kitchen thing ever. Surely they could use a few more ideas for using their Instant Pot?!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The book is set up very logically. Having the table of contents organized by main ingredient (grains, rice, beef, pork, turkey, egg, fish, potato etc.) makes it easy to see what options are available based on what the reader has on hand. There are many vegetarian recipes too!

    I had no idea my IP was so versatile and had only cooked pork and chicken in it previously. When reviewing the book, I've tried at least 9 recipes: cinnamon steel cut oats, polenta with honey and pine nuts, herb turkey breast, lamb curry, shrimp curry, seafood paella, easy beef stew, ham and egg casserole, ratatouille. All dishes came out beautifully cooked and moist" —Scott

    Price: $10.87

    12. A Burt's Bees gift set with lip balm, aftershave, and some other skin essentials that'll satisfy anyone who asked for "face stuff" and left you to figure out what the heck they meant.

    Amazon

    Includes shave cream, aftershave, body wash, hand salve and original beeswax lip balm. FYI, my dad looooves their lip balm, so he'd probably be thrilled to receive this ;).

    Promising review: "Bought this as a Christmas gift for my Dad, he loved and appreciated it! He works outside a lot, but is very masculine and likes to smell nice and clean! He really likes the smell." —Melodie Joy

    Price: $25

    13. Family tree posters they can fill out with all the family members they've discovered from the DNA testing kit you gave them last year.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Two pages came in a tube. The quality seems good — I'm not an expert, but it met my expectations! It can be tough to fit info in the smaller boxes but I did it. This is a very nice print with the details all around the tree. I filled it out and took it to FedEx where I had it laminated for a low cost. It turned out really well and I am very pleased with the purchase. Note that the chart is not in a standard frame size." —LM

    Price: two for $22.35

    14. Anti-skid house slippers that'll feel like a cozy hug while they're *safely* scooting around from room to room.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought for my 87-year-old mother. She loves them. They're soft, comfortable, and easy to slip on." —Terri Jarvis

    Price: $19.99 (available in five colors and four sizes)

    15. A funny mug for the friend who always texts you about their movements even though you'd prefer *not* to know those deets.

    Amazon

    If you don't have that friend, then maybe you're that friend.

    Promising review: "This is now my husband's favorite mug. He has taken to narrating which step he is on in the morning now, and I run for cover and a gas mask on step 3." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $16.99

    16. An egg cooker to help them get the hang of poaching eggs without all the work so you can DIY some eggs Benedict at home. Yummmm.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is NO JOKE the easiest thing I've ever used in my life. Pretty sure it's idiot proof. And I'm an idiot in the kitchen. I love hard-boiled eggs, but I'm the kind of cooking-illiterate person who can't even boil water right. So I bought this puppy, read the directions carefully, got 6 eggs, and in 15 minutes, the buzzer went off and VOILA! Hard boiled eggs! I put them all in a bowl of ice water right after the buzzer went off, just for a minute or two (That was a tip in the instructions). That really made the shells come off easily. In one piece even! It was a joy to make these! They were perfectly cooked, nice and yellow in the centers, tasted awesome. I'm gonna make a bunch more and use them as quick snacks. This appliance is so great and cheap! I couldn't believe how well it worked. It's really small and all the pieces are plastic or metal, but it works like a charm, so who cares! A+++++ Highly recommended." —Emily

    Price: $15.19+ (available in five colors)

    17. A ferocious 3-in-1 Lego dinosaur ready to prowl the living room and cause havoc on the soles of your bare feet! I'm kidding. Sorta.

    Amazon

    Builds into a T-Rex, Triceratops, or Pterodactyl.

    Promising review: "One of the best Lego sets of its size. Sturdy enough to actually play with without it falling to pieces (and that's saying a lot when it's a T-Rex). Sure, a claw or foot might pop off, but nothing catastrophic. I am buying another set to keep for the next time one of my daughter's friends has a birthday party. Any kid who likes dinosaurs and Legos (which is all of them, right?) should love this set." —CJ Kelton

    Price: $11.99

    18. A vacuum-insulated Yeti tumbler that my dad thought was the NICEST gift a friend had ever given him and wouldn't stop talking about it last year. Maybe someone in your life will feel the same way?

    Amazon

    It's true! The cowboy in the product pic is not the only cowboy who likes these things! On to more important things, it's BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, and has a no-sweat design.

    Promising review: "Fantastic design and functionality in a Yeti mug that fits in my car's cup-holder. The lid is a piece of design genius — simple to use and easy to clean. Beverages stay warm much longer than they did in other insulated mugs I've owned. Now, I only own Yeti mugs. Highly recommended." —Rustyboy10

    Price: $29.99 (available in a variety of colors)

    19. A 140-piece Crayola art set for anyone who's always doodling or seems to go through coloring books at a breakneck speed.

    Amazon

    Includes 64 Crayola crayons, 20 short colored pencils, 40 washable markers, 1 storage case, and 15 large sheets of paper.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 5-year-old for Christmas last year. For under $20, this was hands-down his favorite gift. My child loses everything that is of no interest to him like socks, shoes, homework, etc. But he has not lost a single crayon, colored pencil, or marker out of this set of over 100 pieces, as he treasures this set beyond words. This will def be re-purchased in the future for gifts, or to replace ours when the box falls apart from the havoc of being hauled around everywhere my child goes lol." —carolinachic78

    Price: $16 (also available in Mickey Mouse and Incredibles 2 versions)

    20. A new Joanna Gaines home book in which she'll walk them through figuring out their own style preferences, blending them at home, and lending a general Fixer Upper "after" air to their digs.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have browsed lots of design books and this one stands out! It is not just a gathering of pictures. It is a tool to help you identify your own tastes and how to incorporate them into your home. Far exceeded my expectations! I have already bought more as gifts!" —Michelle L. Sullivan

    Price: $19.99+

    21. A cozy plaid scarf available in several color combos, which would make it the perfect group gift for people who can't get the same thing. They just can't, OK?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for a friend as a gift a couple of years ago. She loved it so much she told me I should get one for myself! I finally did. It’s very soft and warm. It does not bother my sensitive skin. And it’s so pretty! She uses hers as a shawl. I use mine as a scarf." —Elizabeth Haynes

    Price: $11.99 (available in nine colors)

    22. Bossy socks for the wine (or chocolate or coffee) lover in your life who's rarely opposed to a refill.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought four of these for my colleagues in my department. As members of IT, they drink LOTS of coffee so they made great stocking stuffers." —Vincent DeSimone

    Price: $10.99+ (available in three styles)

    23. A ~personalized~ Hogwarts acceptance letter any Harry Potter fan would adore. (Including this one, ahem.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my 21-year-old daughter and she absolutely loves it! I was so impressed with how quickly it got here. The quality of the letter was better than expected!" —Danielle Shrieve

    Price: $14.70

    24. Incredibles 2 in a variety of formats so they'll have something family-friendly to watch when everyone's grown bored of their new gifts.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This movie is great!! Fun and funny. I've watched it many times and never even notice the 'language' people are so worried about. If I can't, I doubt kids will. It's smart and really hits home with people my age who were in their 20s when the first one came out and are now parents trying to make it all work. Love this movie!! And as for people complaining there's no bonus content, it's after the movie!! Just fast forward to the end!! Also, we had no issues with sound." —Momma B.

    Price: $19.96+
