Latest Finds for the Holidays

For those who still need to pick up a few holiday gifts… I’ve got some fun ideas today, including this festive knit coat. This list is full of the best gifts from Amazon for the holidays.


I love the weight of this knit sweater coat. It comes in lots of colors, mine is burgundy…which looks red to my eye. I am very impressed with the quality of the sweater jackets I’m trying from Amazon and the prices are fabulous.

Many of the gift ideas on this list are inspired by Oprah’s Favorite Things List for 2023, which is always a great source of inspiration for finding the perfect gift. If you’re looking for additional gift guide ideas, you can find all of my recent holiday posts here.

Best Gifts from Amazon for the Holidays

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Socks

If you don’t know someone’s size and want to play it safe, I’d recommend gifting a pair of Barefoot Dreams socks. These are ultra cozy, budget-friendly, and would make a great stocking stuffer. I’ve given them to my daughter over the years, and they are always a hit.

Bucket Style Towel Warmer

I love a spa day as much as anyone, but there’s no reason you have to save spa-like luxuries for spa days anymore when there are items like this towel warmer on the market. This convenient device will keep your towels and robes warm and toasty, giving you that luxurious feeling of wrapping yourself in a freshly warmed towel after a relaxing bath or shower.

Scrabble, Monopoly, and Clue Vintage Bookshelf Edition Set

If you’re looking for a unique and classic gift for the game-lover in your life, the Scrabble, Monopoly, and Clue Vintage Bookshelf Edition Set is an excellent choice. This set includes three of the most beloved and iconic board games of all time, each housed in a beautifully designed bookshelf-style box that looks great on display. Not only is this set aesthetically pleasing, but it also can provide hours of entertainment for both kids and adults alike!

Touch Screen Winter Gloves

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve slowly started transitioning all of my gloves over to ones that I can use with my smartphone. It can be so aggravating to have to slip off your glove every time you need to answer a call or read a text message. Oprah shared these black checkered gloves, and I thought they were both darling and functional.

Peepers By PeeperSpecs Blue Light Blocking Reading Glasses

I shared a pair of reading glasses from the PeeperSpecs brand when I shared my Gift Guide for Book Lovers, but they have so many great options that I wanted to share these as well. A pair of reading glasses can make for a highly practical gift, one that your friend or loved one can make use of every single day, and it never hurts to have an extra pair on hand. They also have built-in blue light-blocking abilities to help reduce eye strain when using digital devices.

Lollia Bubble Bath

This bubble bath not only smells divine, with scents like lavender, honey, and white tea, but it also creates a rich lather that leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized. I thought the packaging was so beautiful and elegant, and it would look so nice nestled in a gift basket with other self-care items.

Beekman 1802 Goat Milk Body Soap Bar, 8 ct.

These Beekman 1802 body soap bars are made with natural ingredients, including goat milk, which is known for its moisturizing and soothing properties. Plus, they are free from harsh chemicals and fragrances. You could gift the entire set to one loved one, use them as stocking stuffers, or gift them to eight different friends on your list.

Oral-B IO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush

A toothbrush might be one of those functional and practical gifts that seem boring, but I’m a big fan of gifts that my recipients can use daily. This toothbrush has all of the bells and whistles, making it a fantastic gift for those who want to take their oral hygiene to the next level. It provides a deep and thorough clean, removing more plaque than a manual toothbrush, and it’s equipped with advanced features like artificial intelligence that tracks your brushing progress and provides real-time feedback.

Battery Organizer Storage Case

Are all of your batteries rolling around in your junk drawers, too? Maybe it’s just a universal pain we all share, but wouldn’t it be nice if they were all organized in the garage in one of these instead! It also includes a small battery tester so you can discard the used ones. I thought this would be a great gift for a husband to take to a Dirty Santa or White Elephant gift exchange.

Shinery Jewelry Cleaner and Brush Duo

The Shinery Radiance Wash Luxury Jewelry Cleaner and Brush Duo is an excellent gift for anyone who wants to keep their jewelry looking like new, and apparently, it’s Oprah’s favorite way to clean her own jewelry. It works to remove dirt, grime, and other buildups from jewelry, revealing its natural shine. I like that they include a brush, which makes it easy to clean hard-to-reach areas.

Jewelry Box with Glass Lid

If you love accessories as much as I do, you know that they begin to take up a lot of real estate in your dresser or on your vanity, and they can get unorganized and tangled very quickly. This chic and simple jewelry box is a stylish way to store and display your favorite necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, etc. Add this to your own Christmas wishlist, or grab it for your daughter, sister, mother, or another jewelry lover in your life.

Softies Lounge Set

This outfit looks like it would be perfectly paired with a new book and a pair of house slippers for the ultimate cozy gift! I tend to stay in warm, comfortable clothes a lot throughout the winter months, so I think I need to add this lounge set from Softies to my own wish list. It also comes in gray, black, blue, blush, and green.
