Just say, “Alexa, show me gifts for foodies!”
You may have a lot of your holiday shopping done, but there’s probably still one hard-to-buy-for friend or family member on your list where you’re looking for the perfect gift.
Just say “Alexa show me gifts for teens,” or another category that you’d like to see, and Alexa will send you some ideas.
On an Echo Show, you’ll see an image of the gift and a description, and you can tap or follow the prompts to learn more—or say, “Alexa, next” so she’ll show you another idea.
On Echo speakers (or if you ask via Alexa in the app), she’ll send a list of 9 options to your cart in the Amazon app for you to take a look at.
Don’t worry, Alexa doesn’t have expensive taste! All of her gift suggestions are under $100, and most are in the $25 range.
Try asking Alexa “show me…”
- Gifts for foodies (which featured a cool sea-salt sampler and a Chinese soup dumpling kit)
- Secret Santa gifts (lots of great gifts under $20 for an office or book club exchange, including a cozy shawl and scented candles)
- Stocking stuffers (fun mini-sized goodies to fill those stockings!)
- Funny gifts (very weird and wild ideas, including an old-fashioned dial telephone and a back scratcher)
