  2. Have Alexa notify you of deals — just ask Alexa, “Remind me when Prime Day starts” to get alerted.

Birthday Gifts for the Fashionista

It can be intimidating buying clothing or accessories for that stylish friend who seems to already own it all, but we've got gifts for Coastal Grandma vibes and minimalist That Girl energy alike. Anyone would appreciate a customized canvas tote (very trendy) and you can't go wrong with classic gold hoops.

Birthday Gifts for the Jetsetter

Last call for boarding! If your bestie is taking to the skies anytime soon, they're going to want to travel in style. We're talking memory foam pillows, personalized luggage tags, and a passport cover with a little pocket for their vax card — oh, and a juicy book to devour on the plane.

Birthday Gifts for Pampering

It's a stressful world out there! Throw together a little self-care basket — this is the ultimate Gift for Her ™. Amazon's exfoliating bath gloves have over 18,500 ratings from loyal customers, and one reviewer described them as "shockingly perfect with sensitive skin."

Birthday Gifts for ✨You✨

As you should, queen. Who says that you can't buy yourself a birthday gift? After all, nobody knows exactly what you want to be gifted better than you. Save on a brand new perfume, restock your claw clip supply, or deck out your room with a record player and some vinyls.
