Amazon takes all the guesswork out of gift-giving. Though it may seem like there are almost too many presents on the e-tailer, I’m here to tell you that these best-selling gifts that are most added to wish lists are guaranteed successes.

The tight close and silicone handle help avoid spills and leaks by giving you better control over every pour.

02

A pack of shower steamers that are made with calming essential oils

As these shower steamers melt away when placed near water (both hot and cold), they release a calming steam with the scent of an essential oil. This six-pack comes with menthol and eucalyptus, lemongrass and coconut, grapefruit, and other fragrances that transform your space into a spa. They’ll encourage you to unwind after a long day without damaging plumbing or leaving any stains on your bathroom glass or tiles.

The beautiful glow can last for up to 12 hours before being recharged.
