I used to enjoy going shopping in stores for Christmas gifts when I was younger. But it seems as I get older, the more irritated I have become at the crowded parking lots, low inventory, long lines, and only two open registers.
Thank goodness for online shopping and especially Amazon Prime!
PSST! Right now they are offering a FREE 30- day trial! Take advantage of prime shipping for the holidays!
Being able to order close to anything online while sitting in the comfort of my own home requires less stress on my part.
The only stress now is trying to figure out what to get people, especially when you don’t keep up with the things people enjoy all the time.
So instead of having to ask a million questions, I went ahead and created this list of over 100 trending products in various categories.
Feel free to browse or jump straight to a section that interests you the most using the links below.
Gifts for the cook
Crank Chop Food Chopper and Food Processor– As Seen On TV. Great for people who don’t want a giant food processor that wakes up the sleeping baby or the person who can’t cut veggies correctly lol.

Amazon Fire TV Stick – Pretty much what the cube can do, but with added benefits.
All New Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) – Take control of your electronics!
Ring Video Doorbell Pro – For the person who wants to keep an eye on their Amazon/UPS/FedEx packages that they never seem to put off to the side where it can be hidden from plain sight.

QBSM Men’s Leather Ratchet Click Dress Belt with Automatic Buckle Black. I like the matte finish on this one in particular, but they have tons of other color options.

Gifts for baby & toddler development
As a new parent of a baby, these are much more appreciated than clothing because development is important to us. However, not everyone has the time to find the items to support development.
One of these items is a gag gift. I mean I love to give people gift, so if there is a chance to have fun and get people to laugh, then it’s worth it.
The First Years Stack Cups – Practice numbers and color recognition with these brightly colored cups. They may not seem like much, but your baby is working on motor control, hand-eye coordination, and language development as he plays.
