5 Favorite Purchases from Amazon this Year

This year was a very busy year for me and there is no way I could have gotten through it without Amazon. Being a Prime member has come in handy more times than I can count!

I wanted to post a list of my favorite Amazon purchases this year. And since it’s the gift-giving season you may be looking for one of these items! There is no particular order on this list, I was just going down my orders.

I’ll be sure to include any issues or shortcomings I have found with these products.

Grip Replacement Shell for Nintendo Switch eXtremeRate $34.59

This was an extremely fun purchase. I bought this replacement shell in the Sakura Pink and I’m in love with it’s soft appearance. This doesn’t just snap on like I thought though, you actually have to take the Switch apart right down to the circuit boards in the joy cons. It was scary and exciting all at the same time. I’m proud to say that I was able to get through it with the help of a demonstrational video (suggested by the merchant). When all was said and done I had successfully changed the casing and all the buttons work like a charm.

Cons

I couldn’t love this purchase more, but I do see a few issues one may have with it. The installation was honestly hell. The only reason I didn’t throw in the towel and ask my boyfriend to do it was out of pure stubbornness. This isn’t a product for everyone but if you have prior experience with electronics, tiny tools, and the ability to follow long and precise instructions, then I think this is really worth your time.

Travel Jewelry Organizer Storage Case ENZO $23.99

This is the most convenient travel case for jewelry I have seen yet. It has a variety of compartments for every type of jewelry I own and the Pink color is to die for. It is very soft and the zipper ultra smooth like, it’s satisfying just zipping the thing! I haven’t been able to take a big trip to use this yet, but it is currently holding my jewelry and I’m itching to take it on the road.

Cons

The only downside I can think of is the size of the bag with dimensions of: 9.8″H x 6.1″L x 1.9″W, it may be too large for someone just taking a short trip. Honestly, this isn’t a problem for me since I live for larger bags and totes, so it fits within all of my bags.

12-Month Coiled, Life Planner Erin Condren $48.99

This planner is a game changer! While it’s the most expensive planner I have ever bought, it is also the most used. I have this with me everyday and I am constantly writing in it. I bought this in the In Bloom color with a rose gold coil and I have the horizontal colorful layout. I’m planning on gifting another one of these to a family member so of course I would recommend it to fellow busy-bodies!

Cons

Size is once again a con because this planner is 9 x 9 x 1.8 in and weighs a bit over a pound, which makes a real difference in a purse or bag.

Felt Purse & Tote Organizer Insert Pelikus $22

Earlier this year I bought a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM and I didn’t want to get the inside dirty. I bought this in the Large Blush Pink and it fits perfectly in my bag! I really like the felt and it keeps everything from sliding all over the inside. There are a bunch of pockets and everything has its own place.

Cons

I don’t have any cons for this item. The insert is made well, still has room to spare, and does exactly what I needed it to do!

USB C to HDMI 2.0 Cable Adapter LENTION $18.99

This little guy really came in handy and I love how portable it is. I bought it in the rose gold color and it works like a charm with my Macbook Pro. It connects fast and doesn’t have any issues when the cord is moved or bent.

Cons

Again, I don’t have any complaints about the item. It works awesome and that’s that! I’m actually using this right now to edit this post.


I’m a constant Amazon shopper and it was a bit hard to narrow my purchases down to just five. Ultimately I went with the products that I use on a daily basis. Looking through my purchases I definitely see a trend with the color pink though.

Have you gotten any of these products? Did you agree with what I said or did you find any other cons? Let me know!

Until next time, happy shopping!
