    1. This colourful, voice-activated smart light from LIFX that need only Wi-Fi to operate.

    LIFX

    Screws like any other light bulb, but changes the ambience in your home unlike any other. Simply download the complimentary app, connect to Wi-Fi and decide which of the 16 million colours you'd like to deck your house in. Dim, control lights individually or as groups, set timers...honestly, go nuts, there's no limit to what atmosphere you can create with these babies.

    2. This robot vacuum, so you no longer have to get on your hands and knees to reach the crevices under furniture.

    Amazon

    Originally $459 / Buy now for $335.50 from Amazon Australia.

    Honestly, bless the geniuses in Silicon Valley, inventing technology to make all our lives easier. If you've yet to invest in a robot vacuum, here's your sign, go get one – you won't regret it. This particular model is fitted with dual multi-surface brushes, designed to pick up everything from the smallest dust particles to larger debris. A host of sensors ensure your furniture remains unscuffed and that the vacuum doesn't drop off any stairs you might have.

    3. And while you're at it, this hand vacuum – because as great as a robot vacuum is, it still can't fly and get to your shelves.

    Amazon

    Originally $47 / Buy now for $36.75 from Amazon Australia.

    Valid only on Black Friday, 29 November.

    Compact and ergonomically designed (no hand cramps from ill-designed, bulky grips!), this bag-less hand-held vacuum is the ideal cleaning tool for those messes that are too wide-spread for a rag, too small for your broom.

    4. This Jamie Oliver triple pack of saucepans that every kitchen should not be without.

    Amazon

    Originally $249.95 / Buy now for $124.49 from Amazon Australia.

    So my knowledge of the culinary arts only goes so far — I kid you not, I once tried to save a dish with too much salt with even more sugar – but I do know this much. Your meals are only so good as the equipment you cook them with. Never have a terrible meal again with these three stainless steel saucepans, fitted with Thermo Spot technology, which informs you when your pan is at the ideal cooking temperature.

    5. This motion-activated floodlight and camera that will protect your safe haven, whether you're home or not.

    Amazon

    Fitted with infrared night vision, dual floodlights and streaming video and audio cameras, this little legend of a device is the security guard you always wanted but could never afford.

    6. This 6-port USB charger – to replace that bulky powerboard you've got running down the back of your desk.

    Amazon

    Originally $49.99 / Buy now for $37.49 from Amazon Australia.

    Only valid on Black Friday, 29 November.

    I have a massive, bulky powerboard that hurts my back to bend to and my eyes to look at. No more is this an issue with one of these babies – small enough to sit on table surfaces, it has six USB ports, so you can charge all the devices.

    7. This 65'' 4K Ultra HD LED television that would look real sweet at the foot of your bed.

    Amazon

    Originally $985 / Buy now for $749 from Amazon Australia.

    If, like me, your parents didn't allow screens in the bedroom, you might be biting at the bit to get a big-ass TV in your room now that you're big and grown. This pretty number's picture is built of 3840 x 2160 pixels (ie. the best of the best), and should you want, its flat panel construction means it's ideal for mounting on the wall.

    8. This manual garden lawn mower that is infinitely easier to move around than that bulky thing you currently have in the shed.

    Amazon

    Originally $129 / Buy now for $75 from Amazon Australia.

    Valid only on Black Friday, 29 November.

    This space-saver of a mower is fitted with a cylinder cut system – five curved steel blades cut your grass as you walk and a height-of-cut adjustment mechanism allows you to decide just how manicured you'd like your lawn.

    9. This projector that will make good use of that blank wall you never got around to hanging art on.

    Amazon

    Originally $1697 / Buy now for $884.50 from Amazon Australia.

    A combination of laser and LED , this projector is the energy efficient projector you've been hoping for – it saves power consumption by up to 40% and can function for up to 20,000 hours without replacing the lamp. Super sharp images and brilliant colour reproduction, you'll get the call up for hosting Friday night Netflix binges on the regular.

    10. This Philips All-In-One multi-cooker that will clear your countertops by replacing every one of your appliances.

    Amazon

    Originally $311.61 / Buy now for $154 from Amazon Australia.

    Valid only on Black Friday, 29 November.

    So, I was never really on-board with the idea of multi-cookers. But then I discovered this one appliance can cook all of my favourite foods – I'm talking yoghurt, stew, puddings, rice, roast dinners – and finally, I saw the light. Slow cook, pressure cook and multi-cook with the one machine – and for those who are hopeless around the kitchen like me, there are recommended settings and menus.

    11. This Breville Dose Control Pro Coffee Grinder which will ensure a consistent dose every time.

    Amazon

    Originally $169 / Buy now for $106.59 from Amazon Australia.

    Valid only on Black Friday, 29 November.

    Ah, coffee. Can't live with it, can't live without it. I desperately need caffeine to start the day — but a touch too much, and I'm too wired up. This coffee grinder is the perfect solution. With an adjustable amount dial and adjustable razor dosing tool, it will only ever give you exactly as much coffee as you need. Plus, with 60 grind settings to choose from, you can have your daily cup as coarse or fine as you like.

    12. And finally, this gaming chair that looks like it could solve every back problem I've ever had.

    Originally $439.31 / Buy now for $350 from Amazon Australia.

    So, if I'm completely honest, this chair does not go with my minimalist ~aesthetic~ – but with all that padding, ergonomic headrest pillow and lumbar support cushion, I'm willing to overlook that fact. Designed with longevity in mind, it leans further back then most other chairs – 180°, in fact. You almost won't mind working at your desk all day.
