I'm normally much more of an in-house shopper, but plant me in front of a screen and show me an array of cute merchandise and I'm a goner. Online shopping is really a whole 'nother realm, as I'm sure anyone who's clicked that button like there's no tomorrow can attest to.
While I'd never promote irresponsible spending habits, I will say Amazon is the biggest godsend for every kind of random thing you could want to get but are too lazy to drive over to the store for. There are so many things no millennial will be able to resist buying on Amazon, from cute mugs that make your morning coffee happier to versatile accessories for your home decor. I never knew I needed things like a shower beer holder until I saw them on Amazon. It's no wonder we're all "TAKE MY MONEY" when it comes to Prime.
For us normies out there curiously perusing the selection, try sections such as Amazon Hot Picks that are constantly being updated with new products every day. I'm personally a fan of the "Awww" and "OMG" section, but there's also ones for practical use like "Daily Carry" and "Kitchen." There's something for any sort of shopper on Amazon — here's a sampling of items below for you to get started.
