    1. A pair of Apple Airpods for 20% off with a wireless charging case if they've been on your list (or a loved one's holiday wishlist) for a while.

    Amazon

    Get them for $159.98 (originally $199), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "The sound quality is good for such small devices. The battery life on these are awesome. If you happen to run low, toss them in the charging case for five or ten minutes and you are good to go. I love that they charge so fast!! You can even charge one while you are wearing one if you don’t want to miss that streaming show you are watching. I had the original AirPods for two years with no complaints, but these seem even better battery wise and sound wise. Not to mention it is nice to have the choice of charging wirelessly or with the connector." —Happy camper

    2. A Takeya cold brew maker (my personal favorite) for 31% off to get that iced coffee fix right at home whenever you need it.

    Add the coffee to the filter, brew, and enjoy
    Amazon

    Get it for $23.99 (originally $34.99; also available in a smaller size), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "This coffee maker is my BEST FRIEND! I use this everyday, it's so easy to use! My coffee comes out perfect every time. I'm a cold coffee drinker and I put about 8-10 scoops of freshly ground coffee into the filter. I let it sit overnight and the next morning, I remove the filter and dump the grounds. It makes 4 days worth of coffee and I love that it's ready to go for me, especially since I wake up at 4:50 am and I need to make my coffee quickly! It's very easy to clean as well. Make sure to remove the rubber linings inside the caps so that you can clean in the crevices. I would recommend rinsing the filter thoroughly as soon as you remove the coffee grounds. If you don't, the gentle filter will begin to "stain" and be hard to wash by hand. If that happens, just throw it in the dishwasher and it comes out good as new!" —Panda

    3. A pair of Sony noise-cancelling headphones for 50% off with 30 hours of playback time on a single charge, ~extra bass~, and easy touch sensor controls so you can enjoy your tunes (or just block out your noisy roommate) as much as you'd like.

    Amazon

    Get them for $123 (originally $248; also available in black), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "The Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless noise canceling headphones are the most incredible headphones I have ever used! Not only are they supremely comfortable to wear, but the sound quality and active noise canceling are far superior to any other premium headsets that I have used. Super lightweight and excellent sound from these Sony over the ear headphones. All day battery life and comfort. Ears stayed cool during full day use while connected to my windows 10 desktop. The headphones ship with a great carrying case, a USB-C fast charging cable, an audio cable for wired connection and instructions/paperwork. The headphones fold up perfectly to fit in the case which is a good size for traveling. The came fully charged and ready to go, so all you need to do is (optional really, as they headphones will connect to your bluetooth device anyway) download the Sony Connect app and set up the earphones. So far, after using it for 10 days, i had no problem either with connecting them to my laptop or cell phone or sound quality. I like the adaptive mode, it adjusts the noise cancelling while you are walking or running." —J. Edward Baker

    Get it for $27.99 (originally $39.99), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner. This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️" —Greg

    6. A Calvin Klein bralette for 30% off for wear-all-day (and all night comfort) you might even forget you have something on at all.

    Amazon

    Get it for $19.60 (originally $28; available in women's sizes XS–3X and 32 colors/styles), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "I love these bralettes. They’re breathable cotton, which is super important to my hyperreactive skin, especially on hot days. They’re comfortable, racerback means no straps falling down. They’re stretchy in all the right ways, ways that avoid bulging over or under edges. The bralette also provides coverage! Does it lift and separate like an underwire bra? No. But I’m wearing them at home, and for walks, and for gardening and yardwork (most of my life), not out to dinner or with business dress clothing. I had to buy another, and will probably be buying a third. Yes, they’re that great!" —LAS

    7. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 for 40% off, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to wash and exfoliate, scrubbing every drop of makeup, dirt, and oil from your face with each vibrating pulse. No replacement heads (a la Clarisonic), and the charge lasts for a looong time.

    Get it for $71.40 (originally $119; available in seven colors), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it." —hine0108

    It'll totally remove your makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know). ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth Foreo Luna Mini 2 review for all the deets!

    Promising review: "At $250, it’s not a cheap pill to swallow, but damn it. These things feel great. They don’t move. No wires. I take one headphone out and they pause. Controls on both sides. Hey Siri support. Great battery life. I can work out with just one in. Doesn’t matter which ear. Speaking of working out, how many times have you deadlifted and snagged a wire? Not anymore satan! Handstand push-ups? Easy day! They’re just awesome. I pull them out of the case and my iPhone just connects." —Devin T. McFall

    Amazon

    Get it for $89.99 (originally $129.95), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "I have had the Instant Pot for just over a week now. I love it. it has made cooking fun and although it is not always quicker, it IS easier. I don't have to stand over the stove to make sure my food won't burn, it simply cooks and tells me when it's done. Everything i've made in it so far has been a success including perfect hard boiled eggs that peel very easily EVERY time, oatmeal, delicious yogurt from a gallon of milk, the BEST rice i've ever made, and some terrific soups and even a pot roast. I really like my new appliance and will be using it frequently. One hint though, do buy extra sealing rings, especially if you are going to be cooking sweet and savory items. the ring will retain odors and you don't want your yogurt or oatmeal tasting like last night's minestrone!" —Goldjay

    Get it for $339.99 (originally $399.99), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    Promising review: "This is a really great stationary bike. It was easy really to assemble and came with a really detailed instruction; it only took me about 30 minutes to assemble the entire thing. This stationary bike has a really solid frame. It looks really heavy, but it was surprisingly light to lift. It only took me to lift it. It's great that bike rides really quiet; I usually exercise in the morning and don’t want to wake the kids. I really like the display it comes with. It almost needs no power to operate just a few AAA batteries to power the entire stationary bike, no loose wire that you can tip over. The display counts your time, distance, speed, and calories I really liked it. Next, it has a really nice fast-acting brakes, perfect when you want to stop in a short amount of time it also doubles as the thing to add resistance to your bikes to add challenges while riding the bike. I really like the customizations this the bike has. You can lift the seat up and down to adjust to your height. Also you and adjust the entire handlebar assembly up and down to your preferred height. I really like working out with this stationary bike!" —Arvin

    Promising review: "I have curly hair that is thick, coarse and I have a lot of it! For years if I tried to blow my hair straight it looked horrible. Not nearly as good as when I go to the salon. I can't stress enough how amazing this product is at achieving straight hair. It is SO lightweight and the swivel cord makes it so easy to use. I have pin straight soft hair within 20 minutes. It used to take me almost an hour to do this and with bad results. By far the best product I have ever spent money on!" —NYCurl401

    Promising review: "I have literally been watching this chair for years and always seemed to miss it when it was on deep discount. I love the mesh chairs. They give so much more support than most of the fake leather chairs that you see. This is also the most adjustable chair that Office Depot sells. I just ordered it today on the early black friday deal and can't wait to get it. Thank you Depot for this chair." —Dodge343

    Here's what she has to say: "Random canvas totes may come and go, but nothing beats having a permanent, go-to bag. I've had this since college when I used it to carry my heavy load of books, my laptop, and other English major paraphernalia, but it's transitioned flawlessly into my adult life where — OK — I still use it to carry books and my computer. The leather is getting a lovely patina and the structure of the bag is as strong as the day I got it. It has one zippered interior pocket which is perfect for keys, cards, or any other tiny necessities. I received this as a gift, so I can confirm that it makes a good one! My bag is even monogrammed, which made the gift all the more special. (You can add monogramming to almost any Madewell leather or denim item for $10 or for free if you're a Madewell Insider!) If you can't spring for this wondrous tote now, I absolutely recommend putting it on your wishlist."

    Promising review: "This vac exceeded my expectations. It's lightweight and easy to grab off the docking station for a fast cleanup, but also great for extended cleaning of large areas. It also is so flexible reaching into places my big upright can't reach. The suction is wonderful. I'm amazed every time I empty the reservoir. Never had a problem with not enough battery power. Just love this vac." —pj shopper

    I have a Tineco vacuum and I LOVE IT! The battery length is surprising (esp after using my parents' Dyson).

They are warm, they fit and feel great, the leather looks great, and they are cute to wear around the house. I also noticed that when wearing these slippers, even for long periods, they don’t make my feet feel sweaty which was a problem in some moccasins from another brand. Great find and I hope they keep these around for years because I’ll be back for more." —troll22

    Promising review: "I first got the 'essential' model and thought it was nice, but I wanted a little more loft so I got this... This is perfect! When you consider how much time you spend sleeping, you really shouldn't skimp on a pillow... It is sooooo comfortable. I usually sleep on my stomach, but also on my side and sometimes i start off on my back. All are equally comfortable. No negatives except I have to hide it from my cats because if they find it i'll never get it back!!!" —bruce
