You don’t really need a reminder, but here goes anyway: It’s almost Christmas! A lot of us wait until the very last minute to get shopping done, and we don’t blame you. There’s so much other stuff going on (working from home, kids’ school, your teens’ finals, just making it through the day, etc.) that shopping for holiday presents may have fallen to the wayside. But that’s okay! Because Amazon is here to the rescue with their speedy shipping. For gifts your loved ones and family REALLY want this year, here’s a list of Amazon’s hottest products that are ON SALE RIGHT NOW. Yes I just threw all caps in your face because they’re actually good deals you shouldn’t pass up on. I mean, it’s your life. I’m just putting this out there.
Here are the best last-minute gifts from Amazon that are perfect for everyone you know.
The Echo is the perfect gift to give someone because it’s the one thing they *want* but wouldn’t get themselves. The Echo 4th gen has the ability to sync with all your music platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.), play audiobooks and SiriusXM, check the weather (or answer any other questions you have), control the lights in the house, as well as security, and you can use it for hands-free calls. And that’s only some of the awesome capabilities. Literally everyone will love this gift — it’s like having a little helper in the house.

Do you know someone who is having trouble keeping up with all their shows?

This pet camera has day *and* night vision, and you can even have it give your fur baby treats while you’re away!

If you know someone with a TV that doesn’t automatically provide you with seamless streaming platform options, you need something like a Fire TV Cube, which makes streaming Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV, YouTube, Disney+, HBO, Sling (you catch my drift) as easy as 1-2-3. Because without this, streaming can be a complicated, time-consuming pain. Give the gift of convenience and ultimate entertainment.
