The best Christmas gift, in my humble opinion.

‘Tis the season of $25 Target and Amazon gift cards from relatives we haven’t spoken to since last Christmas!

But, what do we spend them on?

I compiled a list of some of my favorite Amazon and Target finds.

Can’t let our gift cards sit there collecting dust!

First, Amazon offers the best knock-off Lululemon pieces. Lululemon is best known for its chic gym and loungewear, as well as its hefty prices. However, getting those cute outfits doesn’t have to be that expensive. Amazon offers plenty of dupes on shorts, tank tops, and jackets that look and feel like iconic Lululemon pieces. A definite must-have!

Lately, the chilly weather has been a little brutal. Luckily, Amazon offers a variety of inexpensive and cute puffer jackets and vests to add to your winter outfits. This is an essential winter outfit piece.

If studying more is one of your New Year’s resolutions, this one is for you. Amazon offers small, desk vacuums. Have leftover eraser pieces? The desk vacuum can pick it up. Crumbs from study snacks? The mini vacuum has you covered. To be honest, this was not something I knew I needed until now.

Don’t want to wait for your Amazon packages? Don’t worry, Target has lots of must-haves.

First, and arguably one of my favorites, the Stanley cup. You have probably seen this new water bottle that is dethroning the iconic Hydroflask. Cali Gomez ’23, a passionate Stanley Cup owner, says it best, “I LOVE my Stanley Cup! It also serves as a mini table because the top is so big. 10/10 recommend.” I think it is time to trade in the dented Hydro flasks for the Stanley Cup!

But with the Stanley cup taking most of the space up in your hands, you will most likely need a bag to carry everything else. Fortunately, Target has it all. Target offers a variety of purses and cute bags in multiple colors and sizes. The best part, they are super inexpensive.

I know I said the Stanley cup my be my favorite, this one is a close second and one of my best-kept secrets. For around $20, you could give the perfect birthday or holiday gift: a mini waffle maker. I have to admit, I have given a solid number of people this gift because who would not want a mini waffle maker? I can confidently say it is one of my favorite things I own.

The holidays are the best times, mainly because who doesn’t want to go shopping for free with their gift cards? I hope you found something you liked! And if you ever need a gift idea, gift cards are always the best, or, of course, a waffle maker.
