It's common to have a small collection of go-to gift ideas that you rely on whenever special occasions or holidays roll around. But there comes a time when you need to refresh that list, because — let's be honest — you can't gift a delicious-smelling lotion every
single year. That's why I've been on the lookout for unique gifts on Amazon Prime that are a little more, well, original.
And when I say "original," I really mean it. I'm willing to bet that most of these out-of-the-box products haven't crossed your mind as gifts yet. In fact, you might not have even known that some of them existed — like a pair of gloves with built-in lights for the bicyclist in your life, and an innovative device that chills wine from the inside the bottle. That's OK, though — I have you covered.
Since I know that gift-giving can leave you feeling frazzled (and low on cash), I've made sure that all of these products are available on Amazon Prime. That means there are no shipping fees or wondering if your gift will
actually show up in time, because it probably will. Without further ado, take a look at the following Prime products and choose your favorite ones.
A Pair Of Gloves With Built-In LED Lights
Illuminate nighttime bike rides with a pair of these
flashlight cycling gloves. Flexible and completely waterproof, each of these mitts are outfitted with two LED lights (one on the index finger and one on the thumb).
