Urm, what can 't you get at Amazon? We all know (and love) it for its mahoosive capacity as a one-stop-shop for everything and anything we could possibly ever need, but when it comes to gifts, many of us are so spoilt for choice that we opt for smaller shops with a more niche selection; particularly in the frantic lead up to Christmas.

So, as we understand it can be a bit of a palaver wading through everything Amazon has to offer, we've done the hard work for you and come up with an edit of Amazon's best Christmas gifts. Whether you're shopping for foodies or fitness fanatics, techies or travellers, you'll find something for everyone on Amazon. The best bit? You can shop it all from the comfort of your own home. 

1. Give Ottolenghi's best selling recipe book to foodie friends

A number one best seller described as 'everything you love about Ottolenghi, made simple', Ottolenghi Simple is a must for every foodie's recipe book collection. With each dish comprising of just 10 ingredients or less, Ottolenghi's latest selection of dishes is easy to make, without compromising that distinct set of flavours we all know and love him for.

Ten ingredients sound like too many? Jamie Oliver's 5 Ingredients – Quick and Easy Food is an even simpler book that's worth a look.
