From laptops and fresh groceries to a pair of socks — or even a car — it seems like you can find pretty much anything on Amazon. The sheer breadth of products is one of the many benefits of shopping with the e-commerce giant, but it can also become one of the frustrations. With so many options to choose from, you can end up spending far too much time scanning the site for what you want, or in a shopping black hole for something you definitely didn't need in the first place.
In a sea of choices that nearly everyone has access to, you might not think of Amazon as a spot to find truly unique gifts. But if you're willing to do some digging (that's what we're here for), you can find some pretty cool things. Amazon handmade offers locally made and artisan products from small businesses around the country and Amazon has even curated gift lists and ideas catered to different hobbies, styles, and more.
If you want to get straight to the point, keep scrolling. We skimmed through the site and found lots of unique products that will make great gifts this season.
The top 5 best unique Amazon gifts:
- A cute bunny-shaped speaker ($24.99)
- A Homesick candle that smells like their favorite place ($29.95)
- A gift set of at-home spa products ($29)
- A set of flavorful honey ($49.99)
- A charging hub that'll charge their iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once ($24.99)
