Some people love the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping in person but more than half of all shoppers plan to use online shopping this season –it’s shopping made easy.
All you have to do is check out all the options, find what you want, and click “Buy Now.” You don’t even have to carry anything home. An also, you can order a lot of these items at the last minute.
What could be better?!
This holiday gift guide features some of the advicesisters.com’s favorite online outlets and picks from Amazon.com, Ulta.com. Etsy.com and Sephora.
Amazon, seemingly, can supply just about anything you desire in the entire world!
Order up a big holiday pine tree (yes, really) and everything you want and need from beauty products to tasty gourmet treats or everything for your next party (from Whole Foods).
Ask your Amazon Alexa to order for you or order online through Amazon.
You can order items pretty much at the last minute and they’ll still get there as long as you follow the shipping advice to see when delivery is estimated.
Amazon is offering lots of deals and free shipping even to non-Amazon Prime members. More than 3 million items will be available for same-day delivery during the holiday season.
Amazon Alexa Devices:
There are many versions of Amazon Alexa, but one of the newer items is the Amazon Show ($230). I loved the petite but powerful Amazon Echo Spot ($130) However the Amazon Show has a screen large enough to watch moves on without straining your eyes.
The new @amazon_Alexa #EchoShow allows you to personalize your experience with it, beginning on the home screen (I added a photo of my cat Nike) and I crafted a “good morning Alison” greeting to start my day off right.
My Alexa Show tells me the weather, and even if there is going to be traffic or transit issues. It’s a reliable alarm to wake me, or a way for me to relax with music or a podcast.
This is going to make a great holiday gift idea for young and old. Check out all the Amazon Alexa Devices!
Game of Thrones Candles:
Game of Thrones is so hot! Game of Thrones candles from available on Amazon.com from Insight Editions (pop culture publishers) can be ordered up from amazon, easily and close to the last minute.

Smaller but less pricey at just under $13 is the Game of Thrones Fire and Blood votive with a decal version ofthe House Targaryen insignia.
