For those still in need of some last-minute gift ideas that are affordable for broke college students, fear no more.

Here is a list of gift ideas for the different personalities that one might encounter this Christmas season – all of which can be found on Amazon.

A gift for that one person who “doesn’t want anything”:

We all know that one person who has nothing on their Christmas list and constantly claims that they “don’t need or want anything.” This person can be especially hard to shop for. A phone case is a perfect solution. Most everyone has a phone these days and could use a new phone case. A new phone gets very expensive, but a new phone case can usually be found on Amazon for less than $20.

More ideas:

  • Bluetooth speaker
  • Portable charger power bank

A gift for a parent who wants more family time:

The best way to shop for this person is to buy them a gift that they can share with the entire family. With a monthly subscription to a murder mystery box, you can have a box shipped to your house every month and the whole family can work together to solve an intriguing mystery that will bring some family fun to the home.

A gift for the person who already has everything:

When shopping for someone who just buys what they want when they see it, it can be difficult to buy something that they don’t already have. The simplest way to get around this without pulling your hair out is to personalize a gift just for them. There are many things that can be personalized easily such as tumblrs, coffee mugs, t-shirts, etc. You could also personalize a calendar with a collection of their favorite pictures of you; how thoughtful.

If you find the right website, many of these gift-giving options will not hurt your wallet.

A gift for the sports fanatic:

If you can think of someone in your family who loves sports, then finding a gift for them may be much easier than you are making it. Odds are, you already know their ride-or-die favorite team, so now all you have to do is get them some gear to support their team. Getting them tickets to their fav sports team’s game may be a bit pricey. The next best thing is getting them a beanie, blanket, etc. so they can rep their team’s logo. Amazon has a wide range of apparel for all different sports teams.

A gift for the baker:

Whether it’s your mom, grandma, brother or uncle, we all know the one person in our family who loves to bake.

There is no better way to celebrate their love for baking than to get them a gift that will make their time in the kitchen a little bit easier. Instant Pots are all the rage right now and even come with a whole recipe book.

These are a bit more on the expensive side though.

If you are looking for a more affordable gift for the kitchen lover, a cookbook or a new spice rack might be better for this Christmas season.

A gift for the artsy:

A pack of new paintbrushes or watercolor pencils may not seem like a lot, but for the artistic person in your family, it could be the best gift they could have asked for.

Paired with a blank canvas or some inspiration, this small gift could turn out to be very useful for the right person.

Amazon carries huge packs of 72 count watercolor pencils for $30 or less that could be at your house within a week of ordering.

A gift for the easily stressed:

For those in your life that always find something to stress out about, it could be a good idea to get them a gift to help them destress at the end of the day.

Eucalyptus scent is proven to help destress, so essential oils, lotion or candles could be a perfect gift.

Amazon also has a variety of different pillow mists that can be sprayed on the pillow at the end of the day to promote relaxation and calming. Bath bombs and sugar scrubs are also a must.

A gift for the everything DIY family member

Amazon has a range of DIY kits for everyone in your family of all different ages.

From DIY slime and lip balm kits to making your own jewelry or ukulele, there is something for everyone. DIY kits can be a fun way to keep the kids occupied or an opportunity to allow an older one’s creativity to flourish.
