Time for another fun contest We've got a $50 Amazon Gift Card to give away along with 10 Mystery Shirt Prize Packs.
 
To be entered to win, reply to this thread with a link to something on Amazon that you think would make a unique gift idea and post a sentence or two about what it is and what kind of person you think it would appeal to.

If you need ideas, Amazon released their Holiday Gift Guides and Holiday Toy List this week. Also, this contest will be running during Prime Day so finding deals on gift ideas should be very easy.

The contest will run through Thursday, October 15th at 11pm ET. At that point I'll randomly pick someone to win the $50 gift card and 10 more people to win Mystery Shirt Prize Packs. As always, if you've already won a prize pack you can't win another, but you can try for the $50 gift card.

Important: you can post & enter the contest once per day for up to 10 total entries. However to make things easier when picking winners, please do not post entries in the thread more than once per day. You can add additional items to your original post for that day if you'd like to post additional gift ideas.

 

For more info on the Mystery Shirt Prize Packs we're giving away this year, see this thread.

Good luck to everyone!

If you know someone ( :gdthankyou: ) who makes jerky, this is a great dehydrator.  You really cannot pour smoke out of a bottle.  

 

This is on MY wish list.

For those of us who haven't gotten used to the digital age yet and still like pen and paper, this would make a nice journal for holiday planning, gift ideas, etc.  And it's from a small business fullfilled by Amazon so that's an added bonus!

I know everyone probably has a voice assistant (I have one myself), but I saw a special a couple weeks ago that you could get 2 of the new Echo Dots for a special price. I already have one, but I've been wanting to get my dad one so I ordered 2 and figured I'd put the other one in my bedroom or kitchen. I just love the one I already have for listening to music. My dad listens to a lot of older music and can never find CDs with all the songs he wants so I thought this would be perfect for him since he can choose the songs he wants to listen to.

 

**Sorry, I don't know how to post pictures here.**

I shared this already in len_mullen's Gift Ideas thread, but I can't stress enough how beautiful this us for those in to astronomy. Since the astrophysicist Dr. Brian May is involved, it may also appeal to fans of the band Queen.

my grandson specifically asked for this, when he saw the commercial on tv.  This is the first year he has asked for anything specific, so you can bet he's getting it.  Praying for a sale! :)

I was thinking it might be fun to give my daughters an artsy experience. Maybe even invite a friend or two over and get creative. This tie die set looks perfect:

Everyone should have one of these in their car.  One time I got a flat and I could not loosen the lug nuts, so I inflated my tire three times on the way home.  Saved me a tow.  After soaking the nuts in liquid wrench overnight, I was able to loosen them with a four foot cheater bar.

This is a gift that every kid will love and every parent hates. It is that one toy you wish you never bought but the kids think your amazing just for making them feel like a star.

I’m going to shamelessly share this one...

My sweet friend Kimberly wrote a beautiful book about her family’s adoption journey and it came out yesterday.

Shark ION Robot Vacuum
 
I never thought I would like a robot vacuum, but received one as a gift (mine is an iRobot Roomba) and now don't want to be without it.   
It's so nice to start it up and I can be cleaning or doing other things while it's working away.   :coffeetim

Here's a gift for anyone, particularly anyone who may be housebound due to Rona...whether working from home, teaching, unemployed or frustrated with the kids trying to remote learn... A little aromatherapy may not resolve all their issues, but it can help to relieve some stress. This set comes with 10 different oils and a color changing diffuser...

I just can't bring myself to like vacuuming any part of my house so I have to admit that I already ordered a robotic vacuum as a gift to myself for Christmas. It isn't this exact one but very similar.
