The holidays bring the joy of giving—but sometimes, also the jitters of choosing the right gift.
To make shopping for your loved ones easier, as well as let them know what you would like to receive, here are our top tips for how to pick presents, score the best deals, and get organised about gift shopping.
#1 Check out the Christmas Store
To make gift buying a breeze, Amazon.com.au has launched a Christmas Store that includes budget-friendly recommendations, dedicated guides for popular categories such as Electronics, Home & Kitchen, and Entertainment.
There's even a curation of Secret Santa ‘must-haves’ for those who are tricky to shop for. You can also conveniently filter products via the recipient's age, and how much you want to spend.
#2 Leave the toy testing to us
For those shopping for little ones, we've released our annual Top 100 Toy List to help you choose a winner. The list—created in partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation, with the help of the Playmakers, Amazon’s official toy-testers—features a range of toys with reduced prices over Black Friday and the holiday season.
#3 Become an Amazon Prime member
Prime membership offers great value from day one with access to exclusive shopping events, free shipping on eligible items and a suite of entertainment benefits.
New customers in Australia can join Prime at amazon.com.au/prime with a 30-day free trial, then pay AU$9.99 per month, or $79 for an annual membership.
#4 Download the Amazon app to track the best prices
Did you know: You can browse, search and shop millions of items from your fingertips, track your orders in real time, and even get alerts when your saved items go on sale by using the Amazon app!
#5 Create an Amazon Wishlist to organise your shopping
Try creating an Amazon Wishlist to map out what you need, or share your gift list with others to let them know what you want this holiday season. You can also turn on deal notifications to be notified if a product from your Wishlist goes on deal.
#6 Use Alexa to shop and track deals
To hear some of the specials available during Black Friday, just say, “Alexa, what are my deals?”
Know what you want? Ask Alexa to add it to your cart! Alexa can also track your deliveries to ensure you don’t miss those precious goods. Just say: “Alexa, where’s my stuff?”
