The best Amazon Christmas gift ideas include must-have electronics, cult-favorite beauty products, and stocking stuffers your giftee didn't know they needed. And the best part? Every product on our edit offers next-day delivery.

Christmas is right around the corner, and standard shipping from most retailers may not be in your favor, but thanks to our dear friends at Amazon, you can get the best Christmas gifts to your home as soon as tomorrow or even today on select items. 

Amazon hasn't shared a specific cut-off date for guaranteed Christmas delivery. Still, based on the retailer's regular shipping timeline, we know Prime members can enjoy same-day and next-day delivery on select items. And these items aren't just any old items. Our edit features the best Christmas gifts for dad, trendy Christmas gifts for teenagers, and some nice Christmas gifts for mom

And although there's one-day delivery, we recommend finishing your Christmas shopping now while items are still in stock and before the delivery window closes on Dec 23, since Amazon Prime does deliver on Christmas Eve, but not Christmas day.

Although we've carefully selected items that offer next-day delivery at time of writing, always check the delivery date on Amazon before ordering as things can change quickly.
