The U.S. Department of Labor defines Labor Day as a “national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” With that in mind, what better way to celebrate one’s hard work and contribute to prosperity than by indulging in a gift to celebrate the end of summer.

While many may look toward scented candles or plaid printed blankets as their treat of choice, we’ve rounded up some new and awesome items that might not have been on your radar before, ranging from carb-heavy coziness to celeb-heavy cookbooks. All items are currently available for under $25, and all items are also available with Prime shipping.

So, without further ado, here is a list of our top five odds gifts from Amazon for Labor Day.

1. “If You Can Read This, Bring Me Some Wine” Socks

For those hoping to have roommate or partner help with the latter, these cute socks are sure to get the message across. It is currently retailing for $9.95 via Amazon.

2. Kryone LEGO Build-On Brick Mug

4. Snoop Dogg’s Cookbook

No, this isn’t a joke. Snoop Dogg created his own cookbook, hilariously titled From Crook To Cook, and it’s earned over 4.5 stars on Amazon.

5. Ben & Jerry’s Euphori-Lock Ice Cream Pint Combination Lock Protector

One reviewer claimed that this Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream locked “saved” her relationship, and she might not be kidding.
