We may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Gifting season is upon us and, while there’s nothing wrong with going the way of the gift card or the unexciting (but safe) pair of socks, they’ll hardly impress. And there are so many clever and cheap gifts on Amazon that will genuinely have your friends, family, or coworkers with their jaws on the floor. From meat-cleaving claws that make quick work for any griller to a genius bowl that keeps your cereal from getting soggy, there’s something here for everyone. Here are some of Amazon’s cheapest, and most clever gifts that will genuinely impress anyone in your life — you’ve got this.


A paracord handle for water bottles

Everyone has a stack of water bottles, at this point. What they don’t have is a great way to carry them through the day. This paracord handle solves that need. It attaches securely to the neck of wide-mouth bottles and adds a handle, compass, fire starter, and carabiner to your essential daily rig.


A cold-brewer in the form of a mason jar

Whip up a batch of cold-brew coffee in this mason jar iced coffee maker and enjoy that liquid energy without going to a cafe or spending too much money. A stainless steel filter fits perfectly into the jar and a pop-top lid makes it easy to pour yourself a cold one. “Makes an awesome gift because it doesn’t matter which they enjoy, coffee or tea,” said one reviewer. “Gift it with a bag of hibiscus or coffee beans ground for cold brew.”


This strange foot peel mask

Skip the gift card to the spa. This at-home pedicure — in the form of the strangest foot peel mask ever — will be more fun. It’s easy to use. Just wear the mask-soaked socks for an hour, then shower off the mask and wait. In about two weeks those feet will start peeling. The peeling is so dramatic and bizarre, that many reviewers post photos. It’s a strange journey. But the results, they say, are worth it. It comes in 11 scents. “So awesome and kinda gross/strange at the same time,” said one reviewer.


A leather & aluminum mouse pad

Skip the quick-to-get-dingy neoprene and upgrade someone’s mousing rig to this slick aluminum mouse pad. It looks high-tech and elegant on your desk, travels well, and cleans easily. And it’s great for mousing on a soft surface like a bed or couch. The underside is a leather-like surface that’s also a great mousing texture. It’s available in five colors.


The best way to snack on a road trip

When you are flying down the freeway, snacking on fries or nuggets, you don’t want to have to clamp the condiments between your legs. That will end badly. This dip clip attaches to the air vents, holds the condiment packs you get from most fast-food places, and keeps that tasty sauce within easy reach. “These were meant to be a gag gift,” said one reviewer. “But let’s just say more were bought by multiple people.”


A grill press for smashing burgers & panini

Elevate your grilled burgers by pressing them with this iron grill press and they cook to remove extra fats and deliver a delicious burger. The press is big and heavy and the wooden handle keeps hands safe. It’s perfect for pressing panini sandwiches, too. “[Gets the] burgers thin like Five Guys and it leaves such a beautiful crust on the patty every time,” said one reviewer. “He loves it!!!! Great gift!!!”


This insulated coffee mug for endless beverages

Whether you drink beer, Biergarten-stein-style, or sip a big, hot-for-hours cup of coffee out of them, these stainless steel insulated coffee mugs will make your beverage better. Don’t worry about forgetting to drink your drink because you got caught up in a task, it will be there — hot or cold — when you remember it.


A TP holder for the road

Just because you are camping, you don’t have to rough it. Carry your TP along in this clever toilet paper holder so you can one-handed dispense from anywhere you happen to be. Just hang the holder from a hook thread the paper through the delivery slot, and pull.


A better brown bag for lunches

If you like to brown bag your lunch, you can save a lot of paper, prevent leaks, and upgrade your style with this waxed lunch bag. It looks like a paper bag but is made of waxed canvas, which means you can use it for years. It wipes clean and the top stays rolled down if you hold it in a warm hand for a moment. “A gift for my boss who always packs his lunch in a plastic shopping bag,” said one reviewer. “It was meant to be funny but this bag is awesome. My husband asked for one!”


This clip-on hook for headphones

Don’t let your headphones litter up your desktop or get lost in the fray. This headset hook creates a place for them — within easy reach — so that they will be out of your way. An integrated cord clip keeps the charging cord (or wire) handy. Just clamp the hook to any shelf or your desktop.


The cure for tea bags falling in the hot water

If you know a devoted tea drinker, they likely have this pet peeve: The tea bag string falls into the hot water so they have to burn a finger to retrieve it. This tea bag holder solves that by holding the string while the tea steeps. Even better, when they lift it off of the cup, it brings the tea bag with it and serves as a drip tray for it.


A trash can for the car

Know someone with a perpetually messy car? Don’t judge. Buy them this car trash can. Once they have a place to put all that trash, it will seem like a miracle that the car doesn’t get messy. This bin holds 4 gallons of trash, comes with 20 liners (and works with grocery bags), and has pockets on the sides for sundries and spare bags. It’s waterproof, too.


These dry bags for people who love the water

Kayakers, divers, ocean rats, boaters, or anyone who can’t get enough water, are always want for handy dry bags to keep a dry towel, a change of clothes, or electronics from getting wet. This waterproof dry bag comes in three sizes and three colors so you can create a custom gift that they will take on all those watery outings.


A cuticle cream with hot spring minerals

This cuticle cream is transformative. A few drops work wonders on dry and cracking skin around the nails, and even promote nail growth. It soaks in, delivering Japanese hot spring minerals and seaweed as well as aloe and vitamin E to dry skin and weak nails while the rich emollients leave your skin hydrated and soft. “This cuticle serum made a big overnight improvement in my nails,” said one reviewer. “I ordered [more] to give away as a gift.”


The smart way to microwave bacon

Who doesn’t love bacon? Though no one loves cleaning the stove after cooking it. This bacon grill is a game-changer. Just line the bacon strips on the ridged surface and microwave it. As the bacon cooks, the grease drips into the tray below. The bacon comes out perfectly and the grease pours easily into a container for later use. Best yet, the grill goes into the dishwasher.


A ring light for looking better on camera

Anyone who spends any time on camera — taking selfies or videos or participating in video calls — needs this ring light. On camera, good lighting is your friend. And this is the easy way to get it without changing the room. Just clip it over the camera and choose the light, daylight, white, or warm, that looks best. No more harsh shadows or backlighting that makes the camera struggle and refocus.


These hooks for carrying bags in the car

Instead of dropping bags onto the bag seat or listening as they fly around in the trunk, attach these headrest hooks to the back of the front seats and hook all your bags there. They give you a place in the car for your purse, grocery bags, backpacks, and whatever else you need to transport. They come in lots of colors and this is a pack of four.


These giant claws that tear through meat

Anyone who grills or is a master of the art of shredded meats will love this upgrade to their tool kit. These metal meat claws are so much better at shredding meat than two standard forks that you will be gifting them time, energy, and hands that don’t hurt. “Instead of fighting with the lump of meaty deliciousness and burning the crap out of yourself, get a set of these and make it a nothing burger!” said one reviewer.


A ping-pong game for any table

This ping-pong set turns any table into a game table. Clamp the net onto the table. Hand your partner a paddle. And play. It comes in a zip-up case to keep all the parts together and includes four balls. “The net stays nice and tight and it clamped perfectly onto the dining table,” said one reviewer. “The only problem is I can no longer use our dining room table for actually eating!”


A great pair of gardening gloves

Everyone who gardens — indoors or out — needs gardening gloves. And these bamboo ones with rubber-reinforced palms are the pair they want. They are stretchy and form-fitting. They breathe so your hands don’t sweat yet they keep your fingers and palms safe from all the sharp and biting things.


This bottle that infuses your water with flavor

Staying hydrated does not mean you have to down boring water all day. This water bottle makes it easy to infuse your water with herbs or fruits. The internal filter keeps the infusions separate from the water so it’s easy to dump and replace it as you go through life.

These unbreakable wine glasses

Not only are these wine glasses pretty and pleasant to hold but they are also unbreakable so you can take them to outdoor events, the pool, the beach, and camping. They come in 16 colors in packs of four. “[They] hold a nice amount of wine and are easy to wash,” said one reviewer. “They look very expensive and make an excellent gift.”


A wireless phone charger

Once you go wireless you will never go back, which is why this wireless charger makes an excellent gift. No one wants to struggle to find a tiny plug on their phone and fit a minuscule plug into it. With this on the bedside table, they never have to do that again. It lights up, briefly, so you know it is connected, then goes dark while it charges your phone. It comes in six colors.


The ladle that’s also a sea monster

Schedule a Nessie sighting in the kitchen by bringing this Nessie Ladle Spoon into your tool kit. It stands quietly on the counter or swims mysteriously through your soup or stew, depending on the day’s kitchen events. “I got this as a gift and I love it,” said one reviewer. “I would buy this as a gift for someone.”

Make cutting through all the toppings and crisp crust of your bake-at-home pizza super easy with this slicer knife. It’s long enough that you get a straight line through the pie. Rock it back and forth to get a perfectly sliced pizza. It comes with a blade cover so you can store it in a drawer.


A sweater collection for your beer

And they are microfiber so they also dry quickly. The set includes a hand towel, hair towel, and bath sheet, all packed into a mesh bag. It comes in eight colors.


These clever cable ties you will use for everything

These magnetic twist ties are billed as a way to keep cords organized. And they are great at that. They wrap around wires and grab together magnetically to keep them bundled. But they also stick to the fridge to hold a pen or other items there. They can be used as curtain holdbacks, plant ties, and more. Once you have them in hand, you will find a million other uses for them.


A small speaker with big sound

Is it possible to have too many handy, wireless Bluetooth speakers? Not when they are as small and colorful as this one. It is the perfect gift. “[Got] this as a thank you gift,” said one reviewer. “He totally loves it!!! Good sound… pretty loud… cheap…. cute…. I will definitely be buying a few more just to have around as an “uh-oh I forgot to get a gift” gift.”

All you do is shake the mess into the trash and put away your gear.


A better meat thermometer

A good meat thermometer is a kitchen essential but, oddly, few people own one that is reliable and easy to use. This one will remedy that situation. Open the probe, insert it into the food, and the big, digital readout accurately tells you the internet temperature. An internal magnet makes it easy to store on the fridge and a hold button lets you bring the screen to your eyes rather than putting your face close to the heat.


This pocket that fixes that seat gap

Ever dropped your phone or keys in the gap between your car seat and the console? That can turn into a lengthy and annoying search into the black hole down there. Save your friends from a similar fate by giving them these car seat gap organizers. They fill the gap with a handy pocket for keeping sunglasses or spare change handy.

This neck light that’s like 2 hands-free flashlights

A magnifying desk lamp

This clever way to carry your phone while running

The eternal dilemma of where to stash keys, phone, and a credit card while out for a run is finally solved by this buddy pouch. Stick one side into a waistband and let the other hang on your hip.
