    24 Products On Amazon That'll Make Perfect Gifts

    From a nostalgic board game to cozy slippers to microfiber bedsheets, Amazon has 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, which can be super helpful for checking off names on your holiday shopping list (or, you know, giving you ideas of things to gift yourself).

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

    1. A pair of silicone face mask brushes for your friend who is a self-care queen and lives for a good face mask. These will help spread the mask evenly and minimize the mess.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, it was so messy and got in my nails too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I'm no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!" —Wells Family

    Price: $3.98

    2. An essential oil diffuser bracelet, which comes with eight different colored oil pads, that your friend or relative can add a few drops of their fave scent to and wear daily for some aromatherapy on-the-go.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is MUCH higher quality than I was expecting and it looks great! To spite several complaints I saw posted, I had no trouble opening the bracelet (easily unscrews), and the scent diminishes to a subtle fragrance almost instantly, that you almost don't notice but still appreciate throughout the day. I've been getting loads of compliments and I have three friends that already want to order theirs! A piece of jewelry that I can wear with ANY outfit and ALWAYS reflects my mood — priceless! I could not be happier." —Kimberly T.

    Price: $13.59+ (available in four designs)

    3. A Harry Potter-inspired cookbook so the Potterhead on your list can properly dine like a witch/wizard at Hogwarts.

    Amazon

    This ~magical~ cookbook includes more than 150 easy-to-make recipes, tips, and techniques. It'll teach them how to make everything from treacle tart (Harry's favorite dessert), to Molly Weasley's meat pies, to pumpkin pasties (from the Hogwarts Express cart).

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS. I'm no master chef, but this cookbook might change that: I might even become a master wizard chef! Anyways, the recipes are phenomenal. The book has a bunch of cute references, and my younger siblings go crazy whenever I make something from this book. I most recently made the meat and potato pies, which can be found on page 44." —Tigerlily

    Price: $10.95

    4. A makeup brush cleansing shampoo that'll be much appreciated by your beauty guru bestie. It'll make their collection of brushes look brand new again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out." —Kryssy

    Price: $4.99

    5. A pair of fleece-lined memory foam slippers to give to your parent, grandparent, or anyone who just loves to be cozy. They'll probably never want to take these things off.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really love these cozy, cute slippers! I read lots of slipper reviews before choosing these, and I'm glad I picked them. They feel really soft and warm on my feet, they stay on well, and they look nice. You might want to order the next size up if you're between sizes. The customer service for this was also excellent — super helpful and quick. If you need slippers, I highly recommend these!" —Elizabeth O'Brien

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes 5—12 and five colors)

    6. A Burt's Bees essentials gift set that includes five travel-size products: a deep cleansing cream, hand salve, body lotion, foot cream, and lip balm. Gift it to someone who travels a lot or someone who just loves Burt's Bees products (because same).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my best friend's baby shower. She asked for all Burt's Bees baby products, and since we are both obsessed I figured I would get her this little kit to bring to the hospital when it was time. She was so grateful and it had pretty much everything she needed and was small enough to pack in her bag." —Jillian Fae

    Price: $9.98

    7. A very therapeutic adult coloring book and pack of 30 fine tip marker pens so your friend or coworker who always gets worked up easily can take out their aggression in a calm, soothing (and punny) way.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this for my Secret Santa gift swap at work. The person I bought it for loves to color, but tends to get frustrated sometimes. This was a great find — to color in the pictures of how you are feeling. Nice that it comes with a set of markers and that you can take the pages out too!" —Tim kwiatkowski

    Price: $21.99

    8. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks for anyone on your list obsessed with skincare. The scents of these cult-favorite masks vary, but they each contain vitamin E and collagen to help make skin healthier, clearer, and more elastic (plus, they're mess-free).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" —Shaun

    Price: $9.99

    9. A Philips Norelco electric shaver the giftee can use to comfortably shave wet or dry. It comes with a pop-up trimmer and cleaning brush and is great for anyone who loves a practical gift.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have never been a fan of electric shavers. All my life I've shaved with a blade. I recently shaved my head. (thinning hair) and I was having difficulty shaving my head with a blade — I always cut myself. so I had to walk around with tissue on my head (not a good look at all). So I decided to take a chance with this shaver and was I shocked!! It shaves my head with no shaver burn, it's very close, and I don't cut myself. I recommend wet, with shaving cream. I'll NEVER go back to blade shaving. Norelco you hit the ball out of the park with this shaver!!!" —kell

    Price: $59.99

    10. A guided daily journal that only takes five minutes to fill out for a positive and thoughtful gift that will work for almost anyone you're shopping for. (We could probably all use a few extra minutes of daily gratitude.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this journal! It helps me contemplate the good parts of my life and the things I need to appreciate. I feel much more positive and willing to look on the bright side." —katleon03

    Price: $22.95

    11. A complete set of The Office on DVD for your friend who never stops quoting Michael Scott.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don’t regret this at all. Although I have Netflix and can watch the office on there anytime, I thought it would be a great idea to own all of the office on DVD as well. I was debating buying this or buying all of the seasons separately because I was worried I would lose some content. I did not lose any content! It comes with so many extras, and not to mention, it looks so cool. If you’re a huge office fan I guarantee you won’t regret this." —Office lover

    Price: $49.96

    12. A Conair hair dryer that'll probably improve the giftee's morning routine so much that they'll be thanking you for years to come.

It has a five-foot power cord and comes with a concentrator attachment for more focused airflow.

    Promising review: "Wow. Just wow. I have long hair down to the middle of my back and it's wavy and thick. I have, for years, either allowed my hair to air dry up in a ponytail or I would blow dry it and then flat iron it. It took FOREVER. I used this dryer for the first time today and my hair was silky, smooth, and pin straight with no flat iron. I can't believe it. Love it!!!" —ajmets

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve bought a couple of these 60ct family boxes and I’m never going back. As somebody who kind of consistently uses their instant camera pretty frequently it’s nice to have multiple packs at home without having to run to the store every 20 shots. Also if you do the math, this is one of the best deals in Instax Mini Film that you will find around." —Torres

    16. A plaid scarf, because it's warm and stylish and you won't even have to worry about sizing. Great gift idea for your mom, sibling, cousin, or friend who loves to accessorize.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My new favorite scarf! It is lightweight but doesn’t look too thin. It is triangle-shaped so it is not as bulky as other blanket scarves. As soon as I wore it the first time, I immediately ordered another color. It does shed, but that is to be expected. Love it!" —conoad

    Promising review: "I foster kittens, so I bought this hoping they could learn to play with these toys. I’m reporting total success. I didn’t think my kitten would like the tube, but he loves it. The green tube and the cheetah streamer are his favorite toys. He’s way calmer now that he has these to play with, and the bell on the tube is surprisingly not very annoying at all. These were the very first toys that he was good playing with, starting at four weeks. They built his confidence up and now he’s significantly more comfortable with all of his toys." —28187
