Didn’t have the energy to brave the crowds on Black Friday? Forgot to check out the sales on Cyber Monday?

Don’t worry about it.

For us, shopping online—even without the incentive of crazy Cyber Monday discounts—is the preferred way to pick up holiday presents. The benefits are obvious: You can shop any time of the day or night, and you can comparison shop with a simple click of a button.

Of course, even online-shopping connoisseurs like us can fall into a digital rut, surfing the same sites time and again. So we’ve compiled a list of 20 must-browse online shopping destinations with thoughtful–not to mention affordable–gifts for everyone on your list.

1. Zara Home

The popular Spanish fashion retailer recently launched online shopping in the United States for its home line. We can’t get enough of the beautifully crafted accessories, including photo frames, vases and trays–especially the metallic and reptile-print designs.

2. Chloe and Isabel

This retailer’s on-trend jewelry designs are perfect for female friends and relatives. We particularly love the glitzy pieces adorned with pave crystals, and the mixed-material wrap bracelets. Plus, you can easily search by price range–and there are plenty of under-$25 options.

3. Flight 001

This site has an impressive array of fun, useful and well-designed items for the frequent travelers in your life. We’re especially fond of these cheeky luggage tags for stocking stuffers.

4. Think Geek

This site–with its “Stuff for Smart Masses” tag line–is pretty self-explanatory. Got someone on your list who loves Star Wars” or gadgets and gizmos? Think Geek will undoubtedly have the perfect gift. (We think that the “Game of Thrones” board game doesn’t sound like a bad way to pass the time on chilly winter nights.)

5. Lomography

Although smartphones have made photography easier than ever, film cameras that produce interesting, offbeat pics are making a comeback–and we love the lightweight, colorful plastic camera designs from Lomography.
