While shopping for products online (and more specifically, gifts) might have one felt like a relatively risky move, today, you can rely on firsthand reviews from your fellow shoppers to help guide your purchasing decisions. This is especially useful when it comes to shopping on Amazon, since the selection is basically endless. That's where this guide to the highest-rated gifts under $50 on Amazon Prime comes in; it's full of great ideas for everyone on your list, whether you're in the midst of holiday shopping or looking for the perfect birthday present.

You'll find ideas for everyone, from your trend-obsessed BFF to the parent who claims they don't want anything.
