5 Inexpensive Holiday Gifts You Can Find On Amazon

Amazon gifts are by far the way to go this holiday season.

5 Inexpensive Holiday Gifts You Can Find On Amazon

Are you finding yourself panicked about shopping inside of your local mall during the COVID-19 pandemic? Is your heart racing at the thought of driving to six different stores to finally find a gift that's perfect for your best friend? Do you prefer to shop online? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions like I did, you've come to the right place. Oh, how I would love for Amazon to sponsor me right about now. Listen up, folks. On Amazon, a simple search of "Holiday gifts" will prompt you to a page where you can click "Holiday gifts: Shop now, wrap later" on the top. DO IT! From there, you will be able to peruse through either "gift deals" or "gift guides." Amazon's "gift guide" page will allow you to see different gift categories ranging from electronics to stocking stuffers. "Gift Deals" will bring you to a page where you will find, well, deals on potential gifts. For example, a heated throw blanket for $45 instead of $60. Let's take a look at what gift deals I managed to find on my hunt for inexpensive, yet perfect holiday gifts.

Echo Dot


The list price for this Echo Dot 3rd Gen Smart Speaker was $39.99. Now, it is $24.99. I have one of these, and let me tell you, Alexa may be listening to our every word, but she executes her commands diligently. Alexa, the, "assistant living within the speaker," will answer your questions like: "What's the weather today?" or "Can you play Taylor Swift's new song 'evermore?'" or "Can you turn on the news?" This is a wonderful gift for someone who wants a little company from Alexa and a little more convenience and entertainment in their life.

LED fairy string lights


How cute are these string lights? These make a great gift for any age! College students can put these on their wall in their dorm, or families can reap in joy while wrapping them around the Christmas tree. Originally $10.99, now $7.19. With eight modes and it being USB powered with a remote control, these string lights are easy to use and trendy. Throw the string lights in a gift bag with some of the reciever's favorite candy and, voila, holiday gift giving gone right.

LETSCOM smart watch


Could this be an Apple Watch dupe? Not could be, darling, it is! This unisex touch screen smart watch tracks your steps, heart rate, calorie intake, sleep, allows you to control your music and sends call/message alerts. Similar to the Apple Watch, there are features like breathing and sedentary alerts that remind you to either relax or get up and stretch. Who wouldn't want to buy this as a gift for a whopping deal of $30.59, down from the non-holiday price of $35.99?

TYMO handheld back massager


Common. A cordless back massager? Count me in. If my family is reading this, please and thank you. Now that that is settled, this bad boy was originally $69.99, and now it is only $39.99. This is a gift ideal for someone who has back or neck pain, or someone who just likes to relax with some heat therapy.

Lenox holiday salt & pepper set


Of course, I had to throw this one in here. This is a classic holiday salt and pepper shaker set. Originally $29.95, now it is $22.80. Put this in a box with a bow on top, and it makes for a beautiful and practical holiday gift. Grandma and grandpa will love it.

Well, there you have it. It has been quite the year, and the last thing anyone needs right now is more stress, especially at an already chaotic time of the year with the holidays approaching. Just hop on over to Amazon and search through the holiday gift deals and guides. I bet, even besides the options I listed, that you will find some awesome gifts this year. And there's one more thing: you can have the gifts wrapped and delivered right to someone's doorstep, avoiding all contact completely if your family chooses to forgo a holiday gathering this year. Happy shopping! It's addictive, FYI.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
