Fact: There’s nothing worse than realizing an important birthday, holiday, anniversary, or milestone snuck up on you. Like, it’s a mere few days away and you haven’t given it an ounce of thought. Not cute. But don’t be too hard on yourself — we’ve all been there. Instead, learn from it by shopping for future-proof gifts while they’re on sale during Prime Day (so you’ll be prepped and ready with birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, and more for those dates that always seem to creep up).
Our trusty friend Amazon is always here to help when you’re in a pinch, and ICYMI, Amazon Prime Day is coming up. Tons of early Prime Day deals have already started, so not only can you go from zero to hero in less than 48 hours’ time, you can also save some major cash while you’re at it (we love our besties and SO’s but let’s be honest, gift shopping can get v expensive v fast). This is a win-win scenario if we’ve ever seen one.
From some of our fave Amazon fashion and beauty deals to a treasure trove of cute home deals and kitchen must-haves (think: air fryers and Le Creuset cookware), plus things they never knew they needed like exfoliating mittens or a plant propagation station, there’s something for literally anyone on your shopping list on sale for Prime Day right now. For the forward planners out there (can’t relate), there are also tons of Amazon Christmas gifts if you want to truly over-achieve during Prime Day. Ahead, shop all of these and more of our favorite Prime Day gifts.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is an annual shopping holiday that started in 2015 to commemorate Amazon’s 20th anniversary. Since then, the event has become Amazon’s biggest sale of the year, even bigger than Black Friday, with major discounts across all product categories. In other words, if you’ve got something on your shopping list, Amazon is probably selling it at a major discount during Prime Day.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Drum roll, please! Last week, Amazon announced in a press release that this year’s Prime Day will officially take place on Tuesday, July 12, and Wednesday, July 13. Tons of early Prime Day deals — like those listed here — have already started. In the release, Amazon Prime Vice President Jamil Ghani said the 48-hour savings event is set to include some of the best Prime Day deals ever (!!!!). So yeah, the countdown starts now. Keep scrolling to shop our picks, and bookmark this page to stay up to date on all things Prime Day 2022.
