Story highlights

  • This year, it's all about Amazon gifts for the holidays
  • Right now, Amazon is selling tons of great holiday gifts, including pajama pants, slippers, journals, candles, record players, coffee makers, sweaters and more

If you haven't considered shopping Amazon for holiday gifts, now's the season to start. On top of the fact that Amazon Prime members get lightning-fast, two-day shipping (on select items), there are also way more fun items than ever to shop on Amazon. What that means is, not only will it be more likely that your gifts will arrive on time — but, it'll also be possible to find something your gift recipient either wants, needs or would like.

Here, we've got 40 items that are either new finds or highly rated so that you can give the gift that counts this year.
