30 Ideal Birthday Gifts Ideas of 2022

There are so many different ways that birthdays get celebrated throughout various cultures, but most of them have one thing in common, birthday gifts. However, choosing perfect birthday gifts can feel exhausting, especially when we are searching for someone who is very picky. Amazon is really a great go-to site when looking for a present, but going through even one inquiry can be tiring and time-consuming.

That’s why we at Bright Side have created a list of products from Amazon that you can buy as a birthday gift for anyone, both men and women of any age.

1. Socks with funny text made into cupcake gift packaging.

Promising review:

  • Super product, quickly delivered, great quality. Very happy — I bought it for my wife as a late birthday present. The delivery was quick, and it arrived in perfect condition. The product itself was nicely presented in cupcake-style packaging. The item is quirky and neat. It was exactly as described, the quality seems good and as an ’in joke’ with my wife, she thought it was excellent. Overall a great item, with great service, and quick delivery. Can’t improve on that, really. Thank you! — Mr. Nigel Everett

2. The right birthday present for all dog lovers.

Promising review:

3. Wooden night light with 4 different engravings that will be a great present for men and women.

Promising review:

4. Tri-fold vanity makeup mirror with 3X/2X/1X magnification, with lights, a great present for makeup lovers.

Promising review:

  • Amazing mirror — Loved this product. Strong and durable without being big and chunky. Very modern and compact. It folds nicely away to save storage space. The shine from the lights is very bright, helping with close-up makeup.
    Battery life is good as long as you ensure the light isn’t always left on. Very good value for money, and I would buy this in the future for a friend or family member. The magnifying mirrors are strong and clear. And the stand has a small tray great for holding tweezers and little things like earrings. — C.

5. Awesome keychain, perfect as a birthday present for best friends.

6. Fart money bank as a hilarious birthday gift.

Promising review:

  • Well-made — This made a great tongue-in-cheek present. And at a reasonable price, I wasn’t too worried if the joke went down like a lead balloon! The tin is quite small, so if the recipient is windy you may have to empty it a lot. The tin is good quality and the print on it is well done and doesn’t scratch off easily, it even comes with a little padlock. Overall, it was a very good buy. — 2books

7. Scented candles as a magical gift set for anyone.

Promising review:

  • The perfect present — Brought as a present for a friend. Arrived beautifully packaged and in good condition. My friend is delighted with the present, loving the pretty ethnic design of each container and enjoying the scents. The only slight issue was some difficulty getting the lids off, as she has some arthritis in her hands. Once they have been removed the first time, this is much better. — Amazon Customer

8. Rose teddy bear birthday present that you can get for any age.

  • 18th birthday gift — Got this Beautiful rose bear for my niece for her 18th birthday! Its package was perfect too, not damaged. Really happy with it. — Amazon Customer

9. Handcrafted eternal rose, that was preserved for 5 years.

Promising review:

  • Absolutely beautiful, 100% real rose — I was skeptical about this as I had previously bought from another site and these are exactly the same just without a plaque at the bottom and a third of the price!!! My mum was over the moon with it, and it is 100% a genuine rose. — Becky

10. Suprise your loved ones with a sentimental blanket with 15 different messages to choose from.

Promising review:

  • I ordered this blanket for my mother — I live abroad and don’t get to see my mom very often, so I loved this blanket and knew she would too! The writing is quite large print, so my mom could read it great with her partial vision. She told me that it is nice and large and very soft. It washes well and folds up quite small. My mom loves it, and she said it reminds her of me every time she uses it...it’s like me sending her a big hug!
    It arrived very promptly and was reasonably priced. — Julie S.

  • So easy and accurate — I bought this for my son and 1 for myself. As a 60-something woman and not very good at DIY, this has been an amazing thing to use for laying tiles laminate flooring and carpets... I would highly recommend this product to anyone. — Mrs. B

Promising review:

  • Amazing! Wish we had found this sooner — Our newborn has terrible colic and constantly waking up, requiring soothing (holding and walking around the house) before going back to sleep. Now with this, we are able to leave her to soothe herself with the white noise, and 9 times out of 10 she manages to get back to sleep without us intervening. — D. BATTLE

15. Strawberry pop-it small purse, great for people who are into fidget toys.

Promising reviews:

  • Cool — I first saw this item advertised while looking through Amazon. My first thought was that it is a quality product. Then I realized that there were a few different colors on the item. This originally got me thinking, is the quality compromised? Not really. It’s nice. (Yes it is). — Ivan Mayer
  • Popping bag, great value for the money — I didn’t dislike this. I got it as a birthday present for my granddaughter, she is 6 years, she loved it. Very light to carry, she put her purse and hair clips in it. — Lesley powell

18. A sentimental and also budget-friendly bracelet made from titanium.

Promising review:

  • Amazing — Aside from the high-quality product, I am so so impressed with the packaging !!!! It makes the bracelet look so posh and expensive. My dad felt bad about me spending all my money on it, so I had to tell him it wasn’t as expensive as he’d thought. One of the best gifts for any loved dad. Thank you so much! — Abby Kimberley

20. Get this LED telescopic magnetic pickup tool for someone who loves to work around the house.

Promising review:

  • Great gadget — Bought as a present for my son, who is extremely impressed. My husband was also so impressed, bought one for him too. It has already paid for itself by retrieving the end of a socket set that had fallen within the bodywork of the car. Good strong magnet with the ability to see what you are doing. Definitely recommend. — Pumpkin

Promising review:

  • Great gift for a golfer with a sense of humor — Good quality golf balls with some “unusual” branding! Great for a recent trip out to Portugal for a golfing holiday/birthday present. There are at least two of these in a lake on the course we played — so if you find them, they’re mine! —

Promising review:

  • 100% recommend, beautiful mug & excellent service! — Ordered & received this mug all in one day, wow! I 100% recommend this beautiful mug and the excellent service from this company. The words on the front are beautiful and have come at the right time for me... I love the added bonus of the extra special words appearing at the bottom of the mug once you have finished drinking your tea! — Lino&Maria

24. Long-lasting scented candles birthday gift set

Promising review:

  • Really nice, and fantastic value too. — These can make a nice gift, being presented in a lovely box, and the candles themselves being attractive.
    The fragrances are all lovely, and surprisingly strong when burning. More often than not, candles can smell nice, but burn with a barely distinguishable fragrance. These ones are much more effective, definitely better than average. When lit, they quite quickly liquify, so not center-bit only liquid, and are left solid all around the outside.
    Overall, these are lovely candles, really nice, with a delightful design and decent threaded lids to cap off after use for peace of mind. Absolutely superb value for 4, and in a nice gift box. Highly recommended. — Albert O.

25. Give this organic bath bombs gift set for a unique spa experience

Promising review:

  • Nice quality bath bombs with vibrant, strong scents. — Purchased for a present. They were on offer, so I was very pleased with the price. And after receiving them, I would happily pay full price for them too. They come in a cello wrap. The gift box is lovely. The bath bombs smell amazing and there is a nice variety of scents. Bright color but tasteful looking. One of the greatest gifts or just a treat for yourself. — Twisted Angel

26. A spa set birthday gift that looks luxurious.

Promising review:

  • Just beautiful — I ordered this for a birthday present, so I have no idea what it smells like, but if it smells as good as it looks it will be wonderful. The packaging was just lovely and how the way the items are displayed is really lovely. It looks a lot more expensive than it was. I will be ordering again for Christmas. — twinkle

27. Elegant pen with personalized engravings, a great sentimental present.

Promising review:

  • Good quality and looked lovely — This engraved pen was a “Thank You” present to someone who had shown kindness to my elderly father. We wanted to give her something to not only show our appreciation, but to give her something that she could keep forever and would be a constant reminder of us.
    I chose a Parker pen, as I knew that the quality would be there and when it arrived, it did look lovely in the presentation box, plus the engraving was clear and professional. The only thing was, we would have liked to have been able to have more words, but this amount was more than a lot of companies offered. She was delighted with her pen, as we were. Thanks. — Hilary Roach

28. Smart planner notebook, the best birthday gift for those who love to organize their time.

Promising review:

  • Brilliant and useful planner — Hard-backed, and with a handy pen holder and ribbons to keep your place, this planner is well-designed and easy to use. Having looked at lots of different planners (many of which were a lot more expensive) this has everything.
    The planner has pages dedicated to months at a glance, birthdays, and financial plans as well as pages for your to-do list, not completed tasks, and notes. There’s also a handy envelope at the back for receipts or pictures. The lovely quotes which are on the planning pages are a nice touch. I would highly recommend it. — NC

29. Blanket hoodie, practical birthday gift for men and women who enjoy some quality time at home.

Promising review:

  • Nice oversized hoodie for snuggling in front of TV — I got this as a surprise gift after looking at the very expensive Oodie, seems very much the same thing for about a quarter of the price, I doubt it’s a quarter of the value, but I don’t know that for sure.
    I really like it, but’s warm at times being summer but nice to grab when there’s a chill, and you want to snuggle up in front of the TV. Gonna get a couple more for family. Values great, quality is very very good for the price, I like an oversized hoodie, this is that and more. — Carrie

30. Karaoke Bluetooth wireless microphone, a gift for those who love to sing.

Promising review:

  • Hours of fun and simple to use — Daughter is having so much fun with this microphone. Very good quality and simple to use. You can stream music from your phone or tablet, YouTube, Spotify, etc. and set karaoke mode on, and sing along with your favorite music. There are few voice effects that can be set in karaoke mode.
    So far battery life is good, it takes approx 2h to full charge. Overall, very happy with the purchase! — reader
