Sometimes, gift-giving can get a little boring, especially if you have those people on your list for whom you purchase the same thing year after year. This holiday season, why not try something a little different.
This list features a ton of fun gift ideas that start with the letter ‘E’, just in case you want to try an ‘E’-themed gift exchange this year. No matter your budget or the types/ages/genders of the people for whom you’re buying, this list has something for everyone.
30 Gifts That Begin With The Letter E
‘E’ is for Earrings: SWAROVSKI Women’s Sunshine Floral Rhodium Finish Earrings
One of the most obvious ‘E’-themed gifts you can give to someone you love is a pair of earrings, and these are absolutely stunning. Made by Swarovski, a leader in fine jewelry, these earrings feature rose-gold-plated stems and gorgeous Swarovski crystals done in a lovely sun pattern.
Although the company markets them as mother/daughter earrings, they’re lovely for anyone on any occasion, and there’s nothing that requires them to be given specifically to or from either mother or daughter.
They’re built to last and aren’t easy to damage, and they come in a gorgeous gift box for an easy and attractive gift-giving experience.
The Gift of Limitless Books: E-Reader – Kindle Paperwhite
An e-reader is another great gift for just about anyone on your gift list who enjoys reading books, magazines, listening to audio books, etc. If you have a bibliophile in your life, the Kindle Paperwhite is an unbeatable gift.
There are four colors from which to choose, and you can select either eight gigs of internal memory or 32 gigs. You can also buy the device with or without ads, which is super odd, but it’s convenient if you’re looking for a way to save a little money and still give a great gift.
This is the thinnest version of the Kindle yet, and it’s waterproof, so your friend can take it with him in the bath, to the pool or sitting at the beach. If you want to add a little extra oomph to the gift, you can also order it with three months of Kindle Unlimited.
Electronics Just Make Life Easier: Echo Dot 4th Generation + Amazon Smart Plug
It’s just a simple fact that electronics make life easier, and if you’re doing an ‘E’-themed gift exchange, you could make a valid argument as to why any electronic could fit the theme. Luckily, with the Echo Dot, you don’t even have to argue because the ‘E’ is right there in the name.
This is the fourth generation of the Echo Dot, and it’s the best one yet. It looks a little different than all the generations that came before, but it features all the same great stuff and a whole lot more.
You can choose from white, blue or black and you can get one with or without an LED clock. There’s even a really cute one for kids that limits the content that can be streamed to kids-safe stuff only.
Whether your loved one wants to listen to music, check out the news, call a friend, control her smart devices from her bed or shop simply by talking, she can do it all with the Echo Dot.
Music is Magic: Epiphone SG Special VE Electric Guitar
Electric guitars are awesome, and whether you’re buying for a man, woman or child, this Epiphone with a heritage cherry sunburst finish is even more awesome than the rest. It’s Epiphone’s class SG style; it features open humbuckers with ceramic magnets and premium machine heads.
The neck is done in the 1960s SlimTaper style, and the sound that comes out of this beast is simply magical. It has a warm, rich, full-bodied sound that just can’t be beaten. It’s great for beginners or experienced players, and it’s not as heavy as a lot of other electric guitars, so it’s even a good choice for younger players.
Easel for the Artist: Artist Easel Ohuhu 66″ Aluminum Field Easel Stand with Bag
If the artist in your family is more of a visual artist than a musical artist, he might prefer this nice easel instead. It’s a 66-inch field easel that’s perfect for full-sized adults to use while standing, but it’s also adjustable, so it can be used by children as well.
If adjusted to its smallest size of 21 inches, it can also be used as a tabletop easel. It features a spring clamp to hold his canvas in place, and each individual leg is adjustable, so he can make it work even on uneven ground.
When not in use, it can be folded up and stored inside the included carrying bag, which features a shoulder strap for easy handling.
Make Cleaning Easier: Eureka Power Speed Turbo Vacuum
Research over the last several years has shown that many people (approximately half) would rather have practical, useful gifts as opposed to sweet, sentimental or romantic gifts that serve no practical purpose.
This Eureka vacuum totally fits the bill there. It has five height adjustment settings that’ll allow your friend to switch between her carpet, hardwood and rugs without trouble. It also has an LED headlight, so she can see what she’s vacuuming, even in dark areas like under the bed or behind a cabinet.
It features an extra-large dust cup that requires less frequent emptying, and it’s extremely lightweight. Accessories that come with the vacuum include a detachable handle, a pet turbo brush, a flexible telescoping crevice tool and a two-in-one upholstery tool.
A New Part of Her Beauty Routine: Epilator – Braun Epilator Silk-épil Facial Hair Removal
If you’ve never heard of an epilator, you need to look it up right away because it’s an awesome little tool that’ll help your loved one get rid of all of her unwanted body hair and provide her with weeks of smooth, silky skin.
It features a wide head that pivots for easy use and an ergonomic handle that’ll allow her to get to any area she wants. It’s entirely waterproof, so she can use it in the bath or shower, and there’s an included smart-light in the handle of the epilator that she can use to see the finest, tiniest hairs and get rid of them.
An Attractive Piece: Entertainment Center by Walker Edison Furniture Company
If you’re looking for a really nice “main” gift for someone this holiday season, check out this gorgeous entertainment center from Walker Edison Furniture Company. Pictured here is the 58-inch TV entertainment stand done in grey wash, but there are all kinds of great options to suit your friend’s space, color and purpose needs.
There’s a buffet-style or a fireplace-style stand, along with an extra tall TV stand and one with glass doors. There’s even an accent stand that’s quite a bit smaller in case your friend only has a small area in which to put his television.
Whatever his needs, the Walker Edison Furniture Company has him covered. These entertainment stands are made of high-grade certified MDF that looks like real wood. They’re super durable and have adjustable shelves.
They’re definitely high-quality pieces that can be bought for reasonable prices.
High-Quality Cleaning Supplies: EVERSPROUT Foot Flexible Microfiber Feather Duster

This feather duster can extend to a length of up to 14 feet, so your loved one will be able to clean his ceilings, ceiling fans, high corners and more without even having to stretch to his tip-toes.
It’s made of microfiber, which will attract even the smallest, most minute specs of dust thanks to the tiny positive charge of the material. The end of the duster is covered in a soft rubber tip, so he won’t scratch anything accidentally.
It can also be bent to any shape he needs to make cleaning easier.

Everyone Needs a Lift Sometime: E-HEELP Electric Car Jack
While no one ever wants to be in a situation where his tire blows out and he’s stuck on the side of the road, it’s always nice to have everything he needs when that does inevitably happen. Make sure your friend has exactly that by buying him this E-HEELP electric car jack.
It comes with everything he’ll need to lift cars up to three tons to heights of about 16.5 inches in only two minutes. It’s a full electric jack, so he doesn’t have to worry about nearly breaking his arm trying to pump the handle enough times to get it jacked up to change a tire.
The remote is fully waterproof, as well, so he doesn’t have to worry about tearing it up if he’s changing a tire in the rain.
A Soft, Luxurious Bath Set: Everplush Diamond Jacquard Bath Towel Set
While towels may not be the most exciting gift ever, this six-piece set by Everplush is the exception to that rule. The set comes with two large bath towels, two hand towels and two washcloths, and the company picked a very appropriate name because these towels are definitely ever plush.
They’re the softest, warmest and most luxurious towels a person can buy, and your friend will love how soft they feel against her skin. They’re made of soft cotton and microfiber, so they’ll dry her off quickly and can absorb up to eight times their own weight in water! This is truly a high-quality, premium bath set.

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced gift that’s both practical and lovely, you can’t beat this pink electric toothbrush from Hanasco. It utilizes sonic technology for a superior cleaning experience that gets between teeth and into the gum line.
The brush comes with three removable heads and features four different cleaning modes: clean, whiten, polish and gum-care. With this brush, your friend will be able to feel up to 38,000 brush strokes per minute, and she can use the other modes to help polish, remove stains and take care of her gums.
It’s completely safe for use by people with braces, crowns or other dental work, and it’s rechargeable. After one full, six-hour charging session, the toothbrush can last up to four weeks without needing to be recharged again.
For Keeping the Edges Trim: Edger and Trencher by BLACK+DECKER
If there’s one thing anyone can tell you about yard work, it’s that you have to keep your edges clean. With this edger and trencher by Black and Decker, your friend will be able to do just that. He can control the cut easily with the three-position blade depth adjustment, and by using the pull-up edge guide, he can convert the machine from an edger into a trencher in a matter of moments.
It has a 12 amp, high-torque motor, which is perfect for tackling tangled, thick overgrowth, and at a little over seven and a half inches long, the hardened steel blade can cut through practically anything.
Green with Envy: Emerald and Diamond Ring in 10K White Gold
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but emeralds will make them green with envy. This gorgeous ring features both. The band of the ring is done in ten-karat white gold. The 6×4-millimetre emerald is beautifully centered right in the middle of six stunning white diamonds.
It’s an absolutely resplendent ring that’ll make your loved one feel like royalty every time she wears it. It looks best with evening wear, but it’s also casually elegant, so she could wear it on a daily basis if she chooses to do so.

(The night light option can be turned off if she doesn’t like it.) The clock and the light are controlled with a four-level dimming control so that the light isn’t too bright, and the clock features both a snooze feature and a gradual wake alarm for easy, less abrupt waking up in the mornings.
An Oldie but a Goodie: Classic Red Drawing Toy with Magic Screen

If you’re buying for an adult, she’ll still love it because it will give her all kinds of nostalgia for her own childhood when she probably spent hours drawing squares on the Etch-A-Sketch because she didn’t know how in the world to draw anything else.
Seriously, though, the Etch-A-Sketch is a classic, and you definitely need to buy one for at least one person on your list this year.
