Some of my favorite gifts to give are products that I personally love and can recommend with ease. While these gifts are some of the most rewarding to give, they can sometimes be the hardest to find—they may be from a past season, or are so popular that they already sold out in most stores. Time and time again, I’ve turned to eBay to find just what I’m looking for.

Especially if gift-giving is your love language like it is mine, holiday shopping is always exciting, but can be challenging just the same. It helps to have a few tricks up my sleeve to keep myself from spending endless hours searching, or from feeling discouraged if I have to settle for something less perfect than I had in mind. The more I’ve explored eBay, the more they’ve proved to be a great source for shoppers like me, who often have a very specific product in mind. Not everything on eBay is pre-owned or auctioned off. In fact, I’ve bought every item on my list below new and on the spot. Many products are available from multiple sellers, so instead of settling for just one, I can shop around within the site for different color options and models…not to mention, the best prices.

The vast selection is the very best feature—I’ve found everything from a chic neutral bag for my sister, to a gorgeous diffuser for my mom, to a classic bedtime book for Clementine, to a high-tech coffee mug for Thomas using eBay. See below for more of my favorite eBay gifting finds for your boyfriend/husband, mom, sisters/friends, and babies below!

Apple AirPods

If your significant other doesn’t own AirPods yet, consider gifting them a pair this year. They will never go back to regular headphones again! We love them for everything from taking calls at the office to listening to music when working out.

Ember Smart Mug

Thomas is the resident barista in our house (you may remember his coffee tips post), so I couldn’t wait to give him this sleek Ember mug. With temperature control settings in an app, it perfectly combines his loves for coffee and technology.

Mansur Gavriel Bag

Thanks to the bucket shape, subtle bow detail, and versatile color, this Mansur Gavriel bag goes with anything and everything. Treat someone who loves classic pieces to this elegant style.

Dyson Hair Dryer

I’ve gotten my sister hooked on my Dyson hair tools, like this Supersonic Dyson blow dryer–she uses it every time she visits. I’m getting her one of her own as a practical gift she’ll love reaching for regularly!

Vitruvi Oil Diffuser

For a mom (or anyone!) who loves diffusing essential oils, this blush pink Vitruvi Stone Diffuser makes a chic upgrade to the many diffusers out there that aren’t as aesthetically pleasing. It’s the perfect gift that includes both pretty decor and a gentle reminder to relax and unwind.

Smeg Kettle

My mom lives nearby, so she and I will often get together for a cup of tea. I picked up this retro-style Smeg Electric Kettle to give her, along with a box of her favorite tea and the promise to enjoy them both during our next visit.

Goodnight Moon

Reading to Clementine is one of our favorite things in the world to do! I’m always on the lookout for classic stories (especially in durable board book form) like this one to add to her growing library.
