We are officially in the holiday shopping mode. Everyone is looking through gift guides to pick out the perfect presents for their loved ones. Want to know what’s better than getting a good gift? Getting a good deal on it. Each and every day Amazon has great deals and price drops on some of our favorite products. We’ve been tracking these products all year so we know they’re actually a good deal and would make great gifts for anyone on your list.
1. An upgraded Instant Pot
Instant Pots make the best gifts for anyone. They love cooking? Get them an Instant Pot? They hate it? Get them an Instant Pot. This magical kitchen gadget makes cooking a breeze because it’s a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, and more, so you can quickly whip something up or try some new recipes.
Right now, the upgraded Instant Pot Duo is just $10 more than the lowest price we’ve ever seen, and we still think that it’s a great deal. If you want a few more features like an egg cooker and cake maker, the Duo Plus is on sale, too.
2. The best affordable robot vacuum for holiday cleaning
There’s a ton to do during the holidays. You’re baking, out shopping for presents, and making sure your RSVP’d to that holiday party. The last thing you want to worry about is if you vacuumed your home before your in-laws come over. That’s where a robot vacuum comes in. These bad boys will keep your home tidy in-between deep cleanings, leaving you with more time to do other chores.
The Eufy Robovac 11s is the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve ever tested and right now it’s just $20 more than its Black Friday price. We loved this vacuum because it has excellent suction and great navigation at a reasonable price. Plus, the slim design allows the 11s to fit under more nooks and crannies for a better clean. It also makes a great gift for anyone who loves a clean home or hates cleaning.
3. Our favorite affordable grill tongs
Whether you’re braving the winter weather to make dinner on the grill or just using a griddle on your stovetop, you’re going to want a solid pair of grill tongs for all of your flipping needs. After testing a variety of grill tongs, we gave these ones from Weber our Best Value award. We loved these tongs because they didn’t feel too heavy and although they’re better suited for larger foods, we think they’re still a great choice for their price point. Right now, they’re at the second lowest price we’ve ever seen.
4. Packing cubes for holiday travels
Traveling during the holidays can be a tad bit stressful. You’re rushing to catch your flight, dealing with delays, and packing for all sorts of weather. To make it easier to actually find what you’ve packed without digging through your entire suitcase, you’re going to want to use packing cubes for some extra organization. These ones from eBags are the best packing cubes we’ve ever tested because they’re durable and come in a variety of sizes for all your packing needs. Right now, they’re at their lowest price on Amazon. They also make a great gift for the avid (and disorganized) traveler.
5. The best affordable vacuum cleaner
A solid vacuum cleaner is essential in every home and apartment, but unfortunate some people will wait until their home is actually dirty to get one. That’s why a vacuum honestly makes a great gift to anyone who just moved to a new apartment or is still using their hand-me-down vacuum from college (hi!). The Bissell CleanView is the best affordable vacuum cleaner we’ve ever tested because it gets the job done, performs well for its price point, and has a good number of useful accessories. Right now, it’s even more affordable at the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
