Don't let the holidays sneak up on you this year! Get a head start with your shopping by perusing Amazon's new holiday gift guides.

While there are some category-specific lists (we're partial to the home guide, naturally), we're loving the quirkier lists, like the one specifically for white elephant gift swaps, or the collections designed to make a social impact, like one dedicated to small businesses. There are also lists sorted by price and the demographic of your gift recipient.

In short, you now have no excuse to fall behind! Check out some of our favorite picks from Amazon's holiday gift guides.
