The 30 Best Last-Minute Gifts to Buy on Amazon (Starting at $15)

1. Daily Ritual Puffer Jacket

If you don't love your current winter coat, why not buy a new one? Cold weather ready and oversized to comfortably wear sweaters and hoodies underneath, this machine-washable puffer is made of polyester that's as snuggly as it looks. "This jacket is such a steal for the quality! I [wore it] on a trip to coastal Massachusetts. It ended up snowing just before we got there, but [it] kept me warm the whole time!" one Amazon reviewer raves.

Size range: XS to 4X

2. Crest 3D Whitestrips Glamorous White

Happy customers can't get enough of these Crest Whitestrips. The strips are reportedly coated with enamel-safe whitening ingredients that dentists use to brighten your smile. And thanks to their Advanced seal technology, they won't slip for the best results. One Amazon reviewer shares, "My teeth did not get sparkling white, but [were] a noticeably lighter shade after just two uses. [I plan on buying some] as a Christmas present."

3. Waterpik Cordless Advanced Water Flosser

PureWow's Assistant Sales and Deals Editor, Destinee Scott uses this cordless Waterpik daily. "I do not like flossing, so I like that the Waterpik uses combinations of water pressure to remove plaque (up to 99.9 percent!) from areas," Scott explains. In other words, it may be more effective than floss, and since this version is cordless, it's easy to travel with (it even comes with a travel bag and tip case to store everything). You can snag an additional $11 off when you apply the coupon.

4. Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De'Longhi

Coffee and espressos (in four sizes) at the touch of a button have never looked so good. Because the Nespresso makes your day feel just a tad more luxurious with a retro design featuring a 54-ounce water tank you won't have to refill continuously and a container that holds 17 used pods before they need to be dumped. As for the taste, one Amazon reviewer says it's the "best tasting home brewed coffee by far."

5. Chef's Path Store Food Storage Containers

You know you're going to want to get organized come New Year's, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to snag a BPA-free plastic container set now while it's under $40 when you apply the coupon for an additional $8 off. It comes with 14 food storages with a 4-hinge locking system in different sizes and labels to arrange them, among other things.

6. Bissell Little Green Pet Deluxe Carpet Cleaner

It's no secret that we're fans of the Bissell Little Green machine—this is the deluxe version that makes pet parents' lives a little easier by sucking up tough stains on carpets, upholstery and car interiors, like a pro with different attachments. And thanks to its 48-ounce tank, you can clean between refills.

7. iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum

For those that prefer to take a more hands-free approach to cleaning, opt for the iRobot Roomba 694 robot vacuum. It runs for 90 minutes lifting dirt, debris and dust from carpets and hard floors (shout out to its dual multi-surface brushes) in a three-stage cleaning system. You can even schedule cleanings on the iRobot Home app anytime (because yes, it also returns to its charging dock on its own to stay ready to go).

8. Fire TV Stick

Everyone you know owns one, and for a good reason. This clever device lets you get to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and more with just a button and call on Alexa to search for you. Access to more than 200,000 free shows is just a bonus.

9. Daily Ritual Jersey Crew

Our motto is you can never have enough basics, and this long-sleeve made from an acrylic, viscose and elastane blend is so soft and lightweight that you'll end up coming back for more. Take it from this one Amazon reviewer: "I absolutely love these shirts! They are extremely comfortable and flattering! I love that the neckline doesn't show bra straps, no matter what kind of bra I wear. No pilling with super soft material."

10. Kindle Paperwhite Kids

Win Christmas by gifting them this waterproof Kindle Paperwhite device which has 8 GB to store all the books they're going to read. Plus, it has an up to ten-week battery life and a black and white 6.8” 300 ppi glare-free display for sensitive eyes. Parents can also take advantage of a dashboard to adjust filters, view reading stats and add picks of their own.

11. Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Android Tablet

This Samsung tablet lets you do more, including playing games, reading books, watching videos, surfing the internet and keeping up with your ever-growing to-do list. It has up to 128 GB of storage, and the LCD screen is a generous size (it's 10.5 inches, to be exact) while the device weighs under 2 pounds.

12. Original Peloton Bike

"If you've ever been to a cycling class, the Peloton experience is just like that (super fun and engaging), but also with the added benefit of being able to sweat your butt off in peace and stop at literally any moment," Scott explains. The perks include easy-to-use delta-compatible pedals, a resistance knob to push yourself, a 2-channel and rear-facing stereo speaker system to blast your workout classes (BTW, there are thousands), a 10-point multitouch touchscreen to get in the zone with the help of famous instructors (assuming you have the $44 All-Access monthly membership) and a built-in microphone to actively participate in virtual classes to start.

13. Samsonite Winfield 2 Luggage

Whether you reach your fitness goals on your new Peloton bike or not, you deserve to treat yourself to a trip in 2023 (even if it's to visit your parents). Buy this lightweight carry-on now while it's under $150. It meets most airline requirements to fit on the overhead and features a TSA lock to keep your things secured throughout your travel. The full-zip interior divider to keep your items organized and the four 360-degree spinner wheels to move quickly are a nice touch.

14. Oral-B Pro 3000 Smartseries Electric Toothbrush

Is it time to replace your current toothbrush? This upgrade has three cleaning modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care and Sensitive to get the job done. More impressively, its pressure sensor alerts you when you're brushing too hard to protect gums, and its two-minute timer ensures a thorough cleaning each time.

15. 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service

One Amazon customer shares, "This was a great investment for me. I learned a lot about where my ancestors originated, and I learned a lot about what various diseases I am at risk of developing in the future...[Basically,] you will learn a lot about yourself and where your ancestors once lived if you buy this product. [You'll] also have the option of participating in genetic research, which could eventually help to lead to cures for many diseases that cause a lot of needless suffering in the world." That's what really makes it priceless if you ask us.

16. Ring Video Doorbell 3

The built-in motion sensors detect when someone is at your door and alerts you in real time so that you can see, hear and speak to them from your phone, PC or tablet (whichever is more convenient for you). "The system was so easy to set up and is very user-friendly in operating," one Amazon reviewer adds.

17. DASH Tasti-Crisp Electric Air Fryer

Cook with less oil and at lightning speed with this neat air fryer featuring a six-quart basket that can cook two pounds of fries at a time. The adjustable temperature control also heats your food how you want, the auto-shut-off helps prevent overcooking and the cool touch handle keeps you from burning yourself.

18. House Ur Home Store Cheese Board

Charcuterie boards are nice to have on hand, especially during the holiday season when you've got hungry guests. This eco-friendly option is made from beautiful bamboo that's easy to clean, but you'll be most impressed with the slide-out trays (one of which holds four knives) to expand for more light bites. It also comes with two ceramic bowls, two ceramic plates and more goodies for $65 when you apply the $5 off coupon.

19. Stasher Reusable Storage Bag

The beauty of a reusable Stasher silicone bag is that its dishwasher, microwave and oven safe for up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and plastic bags could never. One Amazon buyer agrees, "These work really well. Seals easily and keeps contents nice and dry. Well worth the cost since they clean right up and can be reused again and again."

20. Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

It's about time you bought a Vitamix if you haven't already. Buyers swear you won't regret it since it makes chopping and blending a breeze with ten variable speeds. The 48-ounce container also comes in handy for getting bigger tasks done. "[It's] one hell of an engine and easy to operate. I would buy again at this pricetag," one Amazon reviewer adds.

21. Cricut Explore Air 2

Your DIY dreams will be answered with this Cricut machine that creates custom designs for T-shirts, home decor and more with cardstock, vinyl decal and HTV iron-on, to name a few. It's also compact, so you can store it just about anywhere, although you may use it more than you think since it's easy to function, according to buyers.

22. Instant Pot Pro Pressure Cooker

A pressure cooker, slow cooker, sous vide, sauté pan, rice, sterilizer, yogurt maker, food warmer, cake baker and steamer is what you get with this Instant Pot Pro. It's one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can buy thanks to five programmable settings and easy temperature control. You can also cook more in less time with its 6-quart capacity.

23. Eufy by Anker RoboVac

Besides vacuuming for up to 100 minutes on hardwood floors, this slim robot vacuum also uses BoostIQ technology, which automatically increases suction power (of up to 1300 Pa) for a deeper cleaning when needed. Buyers have also mentioned that it's quieter than most robot vacuums. "Our previous Roomba was insanely loud and distracting. This is silent and just purely amazing," one Amazon reviewer raves.
