This week, Indians have been making the most of price-drops in many departments, especially the electronics and home improvement departments. So if you've got that Moto G or XBox One on your wishlist, now would be a great time to act. People who hate the monsoons will love the waterproof carry-case that goes with all phones, and dog lovers will be happy to know that there's something here for their little tykes as well. The list also includes other nifty gadgets and toys, as well as a bowl that...sings? Yeah, just checked again. It sings.

1. This straightening brush with two different settings that gives your hair a naturally straight look (₹1,455).

Most promising review: "I have thin, wavy hair, and this product works wonders for me. All I have to do is wait for my hair to dry about 50% and use it for ten minutes straight. It does not make it as straight as my hair is when I use a hair straightener, but it definitely reduces 90% of the frizz. I don't use a conditioner after shampoo. If you are like me, you would love what this product does to your hair." – D Usha DeepthiGet it here.
