Want to know what the coolest, most interesting and best-value gear is at Amazon Australia right now? You've come to the right place. We've scoured the marketplace for the bees knees of deals and products - and we've found some crackers!
In no particular order, here is some of the gear we're loving right now at Amazon Australia:
The Echo Spot is the latest in Amazon's buffet of smart home assistants, and this one comes in a spherical shape and looks like a very cool alarm clock. Echo Spot connects to Alexa, and can handle a host of demands: it can play music, write lists, tell you the weather, make hands-free video calls, control compatible smart devices around the house - even order dinner. It's a handy friend to have. Amazon price: $199 + free shipping.
You've got to love a handy gadget, especially when it's cheap. This Clip-On Book Light is perfect for any bookworm, and also a very useful device for your camping kit. It can clip onto books, tablets, you name it, distributing an adjustable LED light to help you see what you're doing. The light is charged via USB, can bend 360 degrees, and it doubles as a bookmark. Amazon price: $15.99.
For the unicorn-loving kids in your life, this bed tent is perfect. It fits almost all single beds, even bunks and can be set up in seconds. The curtains mean kids can make their own little cubbies and ready nooks, without leaving their beds. Folds down flat for seriously easy storage. Amazon price: $14.99 + free shipping.
This nifty little tray table not only gets your laptop off your lap and onto a stable surface, but it has a drawer for your USBs, a tilting mechanism (great for tablet use), and it has proper ventilation - because we all know how toasty laptops can get. Bamboo is environmentally sustainable too - so it's a great choice of material that will last yonks. Amazon price: $33.99 + free shipping.
She's got awesome hair, metallic beach accents, she can breathe under water and she'll hold your wine bottle for you. This spectacular mermaid is going to make your next dinner party. (Holds standard wine bottles.) Amazon price: $59.99 + free shipping.
No, it's not armour, but you would be forgiven for thinking it. It's actually a stainless steel cast iron cleaner, and apparently a must-have item for caring for heavy iron pots and pans. Using harsh chemicals can destroy both the seasoning and surface of cast iron cookware, which is why this handy little cleaner has become something of a kitchen staple. Amazon price: $14.99.
If your car is starting to resemble a rumpus room, you probably need one of these. It hooks onto the front passenger seat and provides loads of storage for things like tablets, drink bottles, books and documents. It also protects upholstery against foot (and paw) scuffing. Amazon price: $8.99 + free shipping.
Nowhere to put your phone when you go to the loo? Problem solved! This wall-mountable toiler roll holder will come in so handy, and given that it's polished chrome, it should fit right into any colour scheme you've got going on. You could also use it as a hand towel rack. Amazon price: $10.99 + free shipping.
Because delicious bevvies deserve diamonds. Especially if it's Baileys. This silicon ice tray is a low-cost way to jazz up drinks for you and the kids. There are four moulds included in the tray, and it's both oven and freezer safe, so you can use to whip up other delights as well. Gem-shaped chocolates, perhaps? Amazon price: $6.57 + free shipping.
Removable vinyl stickers are an awesome way to decorate kids' rooms and play areas, but these chalkboard versions are even better because they double as mini chalkboards. You can write names and messages on them, and use them for organising all those kiddie supplies. In this set you get 18 stickers; each one is about six centimetres long. Amazon price: $3.12.
Loving this for the littlest of pets. It's stuffed extra thick for lots of warmth and comfort, and will make even the most placid of pets look like toughies. It's suitable for pets up to four kilograms, and it measures 43 x 40 x 40 centimetres. Amazon price: $13.76 + free shipping.
Have you heard about this? It's been called "the world's most powerful facial", and it's comprised of 100 per cent natural calcium bentonite clay. This clay has become a sizzling hot product in skincare owing to the results on acne and problem skin, but it's also being used for other parts of the body like feet and knees. Apparently Cleopatra swore by the stuff. Amazon price: $26.95 + free shipping.
Microdermabrasion is something of a buzz word in the beauty world right now, and despite its name sounding mildly terrifying, it's actually one of the most painless, non-evasive anti-ageing treatments around - and is much like exfoliating. If you don't want to shell our a small fortune at a salon, check out this Angel Kiss Derma Roller, it's one of the bestselling beauty items on Amazon Australia right now and it's a bargain. Amazon price: $9.99.
This is a cracking price for a truly professional set of brushes, and it includes all the essentials, including contouring, eyeshadow, blush and blending. All brushes in the set are made of non-shedding, premium synthetic fibres (no animal hair), and have wooden handles. This set even comes with a money-back guarantee, so you really can't go wrong. Amazon price: $15.99.
For the beauty lover always on the go, this is a must. It's a similar concept to the toy storage pouch that LEGO fans rave about, except it's more compact and better suited to cosmetics. When spread out flat, it measures around 22 centimetres, big enough for all your essentials and then some. Pull the drawstring and secure with the Velcro tab and you've got a portable pouch, ready to go. There's an internal zip pocket for important things like jewellery, and it's waterproof too - lest your toner leaks! Amazon price: $4.99 + free shipping.
This set is a fabulous gift idea for the beard-wearing friend or partner in your life, and given the value for something that includes organic ingredients, it's little wonder people are loving it. The kit includes an unscented and conditioning beard oil, a natural wooden comb and a rustic cotton bag - ready for gifting. Amazon price: $11.59 + free shipping.
It's Friends! And board games! Could we BE any more excited? Not a chance - especially given that Amazon is selling both the pre-order Monopoly Friends edition and the pre-order Friends Trivial Pursuit game together. (Because friends stick together.) The release date for these games is June, 2018. Amazon price (both games): $89.95 + free shipping.
Because who doesn't LOVE gigantic teddy bears?! This IKASA teddy is soft, floppy and completely lovable, it even has an easy-clean surface. At 200 centimetres tall, this one might need its own room - but just imagine the hugs. The same seller also has the bear in different sizes, so if you're worried about fitting this guy through your front door, there are other options. Amazon price: $179.99 + free shipping.
There's a little bit of singing, a little bit of acting and a whole lot of imagination required for this one, and if Disney is life in your family, you need this in your games collection. Like now. Suitable for ages 10 and up, I'd say this one will be particularly popular when the wine is flowing. Amazon price: $39.99.
Whether you're mad about My Little Pony or not, you have to admit this is pretty adorable - and it's guaranteed to garner smiles from your guests. It's fully licensed, has a 100 per cent rubber back, and is constructed from long-lasting materials that should see you through many years. Use it inside or out. Amazon price: $29.95.
