We all want to make the best of our Amazon Prime membership. Amazon makes our lives easier, especially in quarantine.
Coming from a girl, this is what I would label the ultimate Amazon Gift List for any teenager or college student. Parents- this is what I would buy. Fellow colleagues- this is what I would ask for:
1. Amazon's Echo Dot Speaker (with Alexa).
This is a great gift option for girls of ANY age. The best part is it's only $18 for Black Friday! The Echo Dot works as a speaker to play music, an alarm clock for the morning, a timer, a voice-controlled remote control for turning on lights or other smart devices, and you can ask it anything just by saying "Alexa..." followed by a question. I know I'm going to take advantage of this sale since I don't have one yet (#FOMO). I'm sure the sale will continue through Cyber Monday, but that doesn't mean they won't run out.

2. Mini Projector
You cannot go wrong with a Mini Projector. (Quick side note: I told my mom if she's going to get me ANYTHING for Christmas, this has to be top priority). This is popular for guys and girls of any age. The Mini Projector is portable and connects to any TV Streaming Stick, laptop, computer, Phone, Tablet/iPad, USB thumb drive, Speaker systems, Gaming systems, and SD memory card. You can also adjust the clarity for high definition focus. It also has its own built-in cooling system, so you don't have to worry about the movie getting cut short because the projector is overheated! Since it's small, it's easy to transport between rooms, places, dorms, the living room and backyard. This is the perfect, ideal gift. Especially if you are self-isolating or quarantining.

3. TV Streaming Stick (goes with mini projector!)
Any TV/Streaming Stick will work, but I know most people would say they prefer the Amazon Fire Stick. There are many different models of the Fire Stick, all ranging low to high in price. Though there are less expensive models, I would personally choose this one for gifting. Unlike the less expensive models, this Fire Stick works as a TV remote. That way, you (or the person you are giving this to) don't need to worry about the hassle of navigating your TV (or projector) with two TV remotes.
4. The Nintendo Switch
Alas, this would not be the Ultimate 2020 Gift-Giving Christmas List if there was no Nintendo Switch listed. I didn't really understand the hype until my agent sent me a Campaign Brief for the Nintendo Switch. I remember shaking my head and asking "seriously?! This is the campaign for the month?" Well, my dear Santas, it was completely serious. Nintendo Switch was the campaign this month for the agency I'm signed with. My 17-year-old brother got one last year for Christmas, so I knew what it was. I just didn't understand why it's so popular. Maybe it's because I'm a girl. Regardless, it began to make more sense as I brought
up the campaign to people. Almost everyone I know at college has or wants one. From what I know, it does more than just video games. And guess what?!? It also works with the mini projector ;) Click on the image above for more details!
5. Silk Face Masks
I know, I know. We're all hoping that a vaccine comes out any day now so we don't have to buy any more reusable face masks. Unfortunately, I think we should all prepare for COVID-19 staying through the new year. This silk face mask is a great small gift or stocking stuffer. Silk face masks are a MUST right now because #maskne is a thing. Without a doubt, the silk does make a difference... Especially if you have to wear your mask for hours at work or school.
6. Pop Bubble Wrap Phone Case
I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory. It's a BUBBLE WRAP PHONE CASE! Phone cases don't get much cooler than this. Plus, it's kinda therapeutic. Probably not for the person sitting next to you in class or in the waiting room, but definitely for you.
7. The Christian Self-Help Book List
This is at the top of my reading list for Christmas break. I absolutely love Lysa, and her books have helped me so much. I dare say her books have taught me more about how to overcome anxiety than any counselor has. She also told Instagram Live that she believes this is "the best book out of the 27" that she has written and published. I don't know about you, but if this is what she thinks her best is, there's no doubt that there's life-changing tips inside. I thought her last book was her best, so I can hardly fathom how incredibly healing this book is.
"Didn't See That Coming: Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart" by Rachel Hollis is a close second. I love her writing style. It's so friendly, informal, welcoming, and present that I almost feel like she's reading the book to me. I'm embarrassed to say that I'm still reading "Girl, Wash Your Face", but what can you do? Finish the book, I guess. Well, trust me. I'm reading, and so far I'm loving every word.
I hope that you find something on this list that you want to gift or be given, and I hope you all stay safe this holiday season. God is with us, and he doesn't care if we have COVID.
All the Peace,
