Just because you may be working at home lately, that doesn’t mean time has stopped. Dinner still needs to be made. Kids still need to learn. You still need time for that run (or that bubble bath) you’ve been putting off. Walmart knows time is even more precious than ever these days, so why spend it making multiple trips to the store? With Walmart+, you can save up to 2.5 hours a week*, based on an average of 3 store trips per week. That’s 3 extra hours for family time, game time, or me time.

Free delivery from your store gets you groceries and more delivered as soon as today, at the low prices you love.* That can range from your spouse’s favorite soda to a new chew toy for the furriest member of the family. You can order every day or every week and enjoy contact-free deliveries and substitutions to ensure your order is always tailored to you, even when stock is low. When everything you need is taken care of, all you really need to worry about is how you’re going to spend those 3 extra hours a week. The possibilities are endless with Walmart+.

TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

Sennheiser Momentum Earbuds | $100 | Amazon

If you want to hear about a good deal on earbuds, listen up! Amazon currently has Sennheiser’s Momentum earbuds for $100. That’s $200 off the original price, which is music to my ears. Here’s the basic feature rundown. These are wireless Bluetooth buds that come with their own charging case, which add two extra charges to the buds. That brings the battery life up from four hours to 12. They have touch controls, so you can control music and calls with a tap of your finger. It’s a pretty complete feature set for a heavily discounted price, so consider shoving these in your ears if you’re in the market for a new pair.


Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Headphones | $158 | Amazon

As I said in my wireless earbud roundup, Sony WF-1000XM3's have amazing sound quality and are just $158, which is $72 lower than the original list price. But if you’re not convinced, here’s a rundown:

“All in all, the half-hour I spent really was worth it. The sound was so crisp. The mids were truly mid and the bass was banging. I could hear all the richness in Whitney Houston’s voice when I listened to “I Have Nothing” one time for the one time. The coolest thing about these is you can control the ambient sound by tapping the left earphone once and activate noise-canceling with two taps. You can also pause and skip songs by tapping on the right headphone.”

What are you waiting for? Grab a pair before they’re gone!

It can be very difficult to minimize screen time for kids right now, so why not try to maximize the educational value of some of that time? That’s where Osmo’s tablet-based learning kits come in handy, with interactive experiences that blend physical elements with digital play and deliver both fun and learning at the same time.

The Osmo Genius Starter Kit, for example, uses little puzzle pieces and number and letter tiles that let kits problem-solve their way through games, while the Creative Starter Kit includes a white board and drawing challenges. Osmo makes kits for the iPad and Amazon’s Fire Tablets, and right now Amazon has a handful of kits for both on sale for up to 33% off the list price apiece.


Marshall Uxbridge Smart Speaker | $150 | Best Buy
Marshall Uxbridge Smart Speaker | $150 | Best Buy

It’s no secret I love Marshall. Every product I’ve had from them I’ve fallen in love with and I’ve had many. The Uxbridge Smart Speaker is no different. Take $50 off of today at Best Buy.

I’ve had to pleasure of playing with this one during the lockdown and it’s now my go-to smart speaker. What I really like is through the Marshall app I can control how everything sounds with the fine-tuning feature. You can also do this with the rocker buttons on the top panel which is absolutely sleek and aesthetically gorgeous. But Marshall is known for really chic and cool looking speakers, the design is important to them and it shows. I’ve put it in my kitchen and both my roommate and I use it and all it’s Amazon Alexa features, especially while cooking. Alexa can even hear us in the dining room so the far-field microphone really does the job. It did take me a little bit of time to get it to connect properly but I’m not sure if it was my WiFi or just me having ‘user error,’ but once I was locked in it’s been perfect.

Up to 25% off Jaybirds Headphones | Huckberry
Up to 25% off Jaybirds Headphones | Huckberry

Designed with the outdoorsperson in mind, Jaybird prides itself in its creation of weatherproof, truly wireless alternatives to Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro, Sony’s WF-1000XM3, and Bose’s QuietComfort earbuds. Whether you’re stuck in a snowstorm as I am here in New York or a desert sandstorm in the dunes of the UAE halfway around the world, the $150 Jaybird Earthproof ‘phones are MIL-STD 810G-certified to not only ensure water and sweat resistance but can also handle exposure to all sorts of chaotic environments, including those rife with tropical humidity, hurricane-force water, and yes, desert sandstorms.

The more substantially marked down Jaybird Tarah Pro, on the other hand, do not guarantee military-grade protection, but they can endure a little water and sweat. And while they’re not “true” wireless, they will pair with any of your devices that support Bluetooth, wirelessly despite being tethered to one another by a soft fabric cable. Plus, the battery life is much longer than the 6- to 10-hour ceiling offered by the Earthproof buds (10 hours with the case and 6 without). Both headphone models are compatible with the Jaybird app, where you can personalize EQ settings, listen to music from your Spotify account, and check out playlists and podcasts recommended by other Jaybird users.


Foolishly, I bought the 44mm Apple Watch Series 6 at full price—$529—back in September. For a limited time, however, you can snatch one up yourself in the smaller, 40mm form factor for just $350 in your choice of (PRODUCT)RED, Gold, or Space Gray. Meanwhile, the 44mm version I have is down to $380 in (PRODUCT)RED, Space Gray, and Silver. Keep in mind, these are all GPS-only models, so anyone hoping to stream music or receive text messages on the go without your phone nearby is out of luck. Another caveat is that only certain colors will arrive before Christmas, which could be a dealbreaker for some last-minute holiday shoppers. Still, it’s the biggest discount we’ve seen on the Apple Watch Series 6 since Black Friday.

So far, the Series 6 has been kind to me, what with its faster S6 dual-core processor, advanced fitness tracking capabilities, and most importantly to me, the ability to stream music without my phone in reach. That said, I almost regret buying the Series 6 knowing what I know now about the SE. The exclusive features aren’t for everyone, including myself. If you don’t need an ECG sensor or blood oxygen monitoring, the more affordable Apple Watch SE is the Apple Watch to buy this year. Though it does use the 1-year-older Series 5 chip, it’s still twice as fast as a Series 3 and honestly doesn’t cost much more at the current $250 to $300 sale price depending on the configuration.

But don’t take it from me. My wife, the wearables expert in our household had this to say in her review for Gizmodo:

Unless your top priority is future-proofed advanced health-monitoring, or you just really love an always-on display, you should get a Watch SE. I promise you won’t feel like you’ve been cheated. If you’re not sure if you like smartwatches enough to plop down $400, then absolutely the Watch SE is the way to go. Don’t even look at the $200 Series 3. Don’t even think about it for your children, as it doesn’t even support the Family Setup feature that the cheapest watch seems perfect for. While the Series 3 was a great smartwatch, its time has passed. We thank it for its service and wish it a happy afterlife.


SanDisk 512GB Ultra microSDXC | $60 | Amazon

As every year passes, memory cards become more expansive yet cheaper, and that’s further shown here with this amazing microSD card bargain. This SanDisk 512GB Ultra microSDXC card can be slotted into a Nintendo Switch, camera, or smartphone that supports this memory type, and you can store as many videos, photos, and games as the memory card can handle.

It’s $120 off the list price right now for a sizable chunk of storage. If that’s more than you need, Amazon also has a 256GB version for just $27.


Aukey EP-N5 ANC Earbuds | $36 | Amazon | Use Code IHN86JSC
Aukey EP-N5 ANC Earbuds | $36 | Amazon | Use Code IHN86JSC
Image: Sheilah Villari

Aukey has fast become my go-to earbuds and I’m pleasantly surprised by the sound quality and power of each one I test. Starting today the EP-N5 ANC Earbuds are the lowest they’ve ever been. Use the code IHN86JSC and take 25% off until December 21.

The noise cancelation for such tiny buds is pretty awesome and I often have to take them out to hear someone speak even with the sound off. You’ll get up to about thirty-five hours of total playtime with the charging case, which charges rather quickly in my experience. If you have the ANC on except about five hours of tunes and seven without it. There are dual microphones so each bud will deliver clear messages and the background-noise suppression definitely helps too. They pair quickly and easily as I’ve found with most Aukey audio products. Overall these are comfortable, reliable, and absolutely worth every penny.

Free shipping for Prime members and guaranteed to arrive before Christmas.


The Amazon Fire HD family is getting some love right now, with all tablets across the line discounted for the holidays. The sweet spot is arguably the Amazon Fire HD 8 w/ offers, with the discount bringing your final total down to $65. Upgrade to a 64GB model for just $30 more.

This 8" tablet plays games, feeds you videos, puts words on the screen, and sends sweet music through your ears. Plus, you’ll always find more to do in the Amazon Appstore. It might not be as robust or powerful as an iPad, but for $65, it’s perfectly priced as a gift for someone who could use a portable screen.


Anker Nebula Solar Projector | $442 | Amazon

With every Warner Bros. movie coming to HBO Max in 2021, it seems highly unlikely we’ll be returning to theaters anytime soon, at least for those of us making an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In the meantime, the only thing standing between you and a theatrical movie-watching experience is the proper projector. Anker has something of a reputation for good quality hardware that doesn’t cost a fortune to buy. That doesn’t end with its Nebula projectors, two of which are currently on sale starting at $442 on Amazon.

For that price, you can snag a full HD, 1080p projector with 400 ANSI lumens, and HDR10 support, along with Dolby Digital Plus sound by way of a pair of 3-watt speakers. In fact, Anker is so confident in its sound system that it’s given you the option to pair your other devices to it via Bluetooth to blast your tunes at a higher volume. Built-in is Google’s Android TV 9 smart TV software, so casual viewers will never have to worry about occupying the projector’s HDMI-out port. That said, Android TV isn’t for everyone, but you can rest assured the ability to plug in an Apple TV, Fire TV, or Roku streaming device is always there if you need it. You can also cast video content from your phone, tablet, or laptop using the integrated Chromecast functionality.

The Anker Nebula Solar Portable projector is also on sale today for $510, for a limited time only. Packing all the same features as the standard Nebula Solar, the Solar Portable adds a rechargeable battery that promises 3 hours of consecutive streaming with no external power source attached. While that won’t be enough to handle Justice League’s “Synder Cut” when it hits HBO next summer, you can always schedule an intermission partway through for bathroom and snack breaks while it charges, and resume your watch later. Or, better yet, refrain from watching it at all.


Beats Powerbeats Pro Earphones | $150 | Amazon
Beats Powerbeats Pro Earphones | $150 | Amazon

If you’re looking for a sale on some Beats, boy do I have the deal for you. The Powerbeats Pro earphones are down to $150 in red, 40% off the original list price and the lowest price we’ve ever seen them new. That’s even lower than Amazon had them during Prime Day. However, as of this writing, it looks like they won’t arrive until after Christmas.

You’ll be able to wirelessly connect these bad boys to any device and you’ll be able to get up to nine hours of listening time, and can control the volume and audio controls from the actual earphones. Amazon has other colors for a bit more cash, $170 or 32% off the list price, and they’ll ship sooner than red.

Looking for a new smartphone? TCL may not be a name you’re familiar with in this realm, but much like its rise to fame in the TV world, the company’s value-packed smartphones have been turning heads these past few years. The TCL 10 series phones pack mid-range Snapdragon octa-core chipsets, 6GB of RAM, quad cameras, and big beautiful 6-inch-plus displays, and two of them get a pretty nice discount today.

The TCL 10 Pro, which has a beefy processor, an AMOLED display, and ample base storage (128GB) is $337 following a 25% discount when you clip the coupon. It’s unlocked and certified for use on Verizon’s LTE network, plus it has all the usual GSM radios for use on T-Mobile, AT&T, and more networks worldwide. Budget buyers will appreciate saving over $60 on the TCL 10L, another unlocked Android device featuring a larger 6.53" LCD screen, a 48MP quad rear camera system, 64GB of storage, and 6GB of RAM. Along with a physical Smart Key button you can program to quick-launch any app you want, both have microSD card slots and headphone jacks. Bless.


Marshall Minor II | $60 | Amazon

I love Marshall. Every product I’ve had from them becomes my favorite and these Minor II in-ear headphones are at the top. Amazon is currently discounting these by 53% which is an amazing deal on a quality product. These are usually $129 but worth every penny.

I’ve run with these a lot this year and can vouch that they not only stay in place but have a great sound and block out a lot of excess noise. I love how compact these are. They’re easy to toss in your bag or even pocket. I’ve even fallen asleep with these, that’s how comfortable they are. They charge quickly, pair with anything, and the mic is clear for phone calls or even recording a podcast (which I do twice a month). I can’t recommend these enough. All three colors are included in this sale.

Free shipping if you are a Prime member.


Apple Watch SE (GPS, 44mm) - Space Gray | $250 | Amazon
Apple Watch SE (GPS, 44mm) - Space Gray | $250 | Amazon
Image: Gabe Carey

As my lovely wife elegantly put it in her review for Gizmodo, “the Watch SE performs like a high-end smartwatch without the high-end price tag.” With the processor of a Series 5 and the optical heart rate sensor of a Series 6, some would argue the Apple Watch SE is the one to buy this year if you’re still sporting an Apple Watch 3 or older. Although for some reason Apple still sells the Series 3 (but not the Series 4 or Series 5), tech experts speculate it won’t be supported for much longer. And with the 44mm Apple Watch SE now on sale for $250 in Space Gray—marked down from $309—the choice is clear for those on the fence about which model to buy. In comparison, the “bigger” Series 3 model is 2mm smaller and costs only $30 less.

For $179 less than the comparably sized Series 6, you can secure Apple’s other Watch released this year and remain confident it’ll get the latest software updates for years to come. Be that as it may, there is one caveat to this offer. Only the Space Gray 44mm option is marked down $59, meaning if you’re hoping to rock the Silver aluminum case, you’ll have to pay a still-discounted $280, though the Gold model is not on sale. As a Space Gray Apple Watch haver myself, I have to say, there’s nothing it won’t match, and unlike some colors (looking at you, Rose Gold), historical evidence suggests Space Gray is here for the long haul. Silver and Gold Apple Watch SE models are also available for $250 in the smaller 40mm form factor. Tiny wrists rise up!

As Victoria puts it, the Apple Watch SE is the one to buy over the dead-in-the-water Series 3, and even the Series 6, which I foolishly pre-ordered on a whim back in September:

Unless your top priority is future-proofed advanced health-monitoring, or you just really love an always-on display, you should get a Watch SE. I promise you won’t feel like you’ve been cheated. If you’re not sure if you like smartwatches enough to plop down $400, then absolutely the Watch SE is the way to go. Don’t even look at the $200 Series 3. Don’t even think about it for your children, as it doesn’t even support the Family Setup feature that the cheapest watch seems perfect for. While the Series 3 was a great smartwatch, its time has passed. We thank it for its service and wish it a happy afterlife.

TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS

Been waiting for the right moment to grab Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? Today might be the perfect time. Amazon currently has the game down to $45, which is the lowest price we’ve seen it yet since its launch one month ago. It’s been a very busy month considering all the hubbub with new consoles and now Cyberpunk 2077, but Valhalla is definitely worth checking out. The latest installment of the Assassin’s Creed series casts you in the role of a Eivor, a ruthless Viking who’s all about chopping heads off. Seriously, you will chop like a thousand heads off in this game. It’s a lot of heads. If that sounds exciting, then this is the game for you.

It’s time to get back into Pokémon cards in a big way. Amazon is currently running a buy one, get one 50% off sale on Pokémon card V boxes, which is a perfect way to get back into the trading card game. The sets come with four packs of cards, a foil card, and one big oversized card. Plus, you’ll get a code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Amazon has three boxes to choose from, which feature Polteageist, Copperajah, and Orbeetle. Pick your two favorites of the litter and get ready to dive into some 90's nostalgia. Or, if you’re a diehard who never stopped playing, add a whole mess of new cards to your collection.


Gears 5 | $5 | Best Buy
Gears 5 | $5 | Best Buy

In perhaps the most fitting price-to-title match ever, Gears 5 is currently $5. For those that base their game buying decisions on a price/content ratio, that’s $1 per gear. Perfect value. Frankly, $5 is a genuine steal for this game. Gears 5 is an excellent installment of the long-running Gears of War series that’s jam-packed with memorable action and a memorable lead character. It also has characters that are just too large. The biggest human beings you’ll ever see. What’s fun about the Gears series is that it’s a game about very big people being sad. It’s a big melodrama that’s almost a parody of soap operas. Gears is basically wrestling, but for video games. You love to see it.


Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Xbox) | $13 | Best Buy

I hope you’re ready for a good cry, because Ori and the Will of the Wisps is $13 right now. Okay, that’s not the part that’s going to make you cry, unless you just love deals a lot. The game itself is extremely emotional with some genuinely tear-jerking story beats. If you’re not familiar with the original, Ori is a 2D platformer about a little creature frolicking through the woods (there’s a lot more lore than that, but I don’t have the time or space to get into it here). The sequel gives you a precious owl baby and proceeds to tear your heart out of your chest Mortal Kombat style in a quest to protect it. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a gorgeous and slick platformer with satisfying mobility and a deeply affecting story, so don’t forget it when you put together your 2020 catch-up backlog.


John Wick Hex (Switch) | $17 | Amazon

It is a monumental month for gamers and Keanu Reeves fans alike. Those who have always dreamed of seeing him in a video game can finally do so. That’s right folks: John Wick Hex is on sale for $17 at Amazon. You’ve all been waiting for this moment since the clever strategy game launched last year. Mike Bithell’s spin on the John Wick movies might not be what you expect, trading in fast-paced gun-fu for turn-based combat, but it works surprisingly well. If you’ve been seeing Twitter going crazy over the past year talking about Keanu Reeves’ foray into the game world, this is the game everyone is talking about. Remember: there’s nothing more punk than supporting games by indie developers.


Gears Tactics | $20 | Amazon
Gears Tactics | $20 | Amazon

Here we are at the end of 2020. What a ride it’s been folks. I would like to get off now. As always, it’s now the part of the year where we try to remember all the things that happened in gaming during 12 months of news. One thing that’s easy to forget is how big a year 2020 was for tactics games. Earlier this Spring, the niche genre had a huge moment with multiple high-profile releases coming out just as games like The Last of Us Part II were getting delayed. If you’re looking to revisit that brief trend, the digital version of Gears Tactics is $20 right now. The tactics game may be turn-based, but it’s still as action-packed as you might expect from a Gears game. Characters can do a lot more in one turn, making the game feel faster and more fluid than your average strategy game. For fans of the genre, it’s an exciting twist on an old classic filled with extremely large guns.


Halo 5: Guardians | $10 | Best Buy

Well folks, Halo Infinite isn’t coming any time soon. After getting delayed earlier this year, Microsoft now says the anticipated first-person shooter is coming fall 2021. While we’re glad that Microsoft is taking its time and not rushing out an unfinished game, it’s a bit of a bummer for Series X owners who were hoping to get some next-gen Halo going soon. As a remedy to your heartache, Best Buy currently has Halo 5: Guardians on sale for $10. Sure, it’s not the flashy, next-gen game we’re all waiting for, but if you just absolutely need that Halo fix, this is a very cheap way to jump into a deathmatch. $10 is what you’d pay for a month of Game Pass, so it’s a rare instance where this is as good a value as just subscribing to the service to play a game.


Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise | $43 | Amazon

There were so many games in 2020 that I don’t blame you if you forgot about some of the more niche ones. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot? Serious Sam 4? Hyper Scape? It’s hard to keep track of everything. But one game you probably shouldn’t forget is Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise. It’s not that the survival horror game about an FBI agent investigating a mystery is good. It’s that it’s weird. We’re talking like The Room weird, where the line between good and bad starts to blur. It’s an experience, even if it’s not going to change your world. If you’re curious, Amazon currently has the game on sale for $43, so check it out if you dare.


3 Months of Xbox Game Pass for PC | $20 | Best Buy
3 Months of Xbox Game Pass for PC | $20 | Best Buy

Microsoft loves to run crazy deals on Xbox Game Pass, allowing new subscribers to get a few months for $1. Unfortunately, current subscribers are left out in the cold during those deals. Fortunately, here’s a deal current subscribers can use. Best Buy is selling three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC for $20. That’ll save subscribers a bit of money on their next few months. The deal is pretty well-timed considering that Among Us was just added to the service this week. Here’s another recommendation though: check out Monster Train. The deck-building game takes the basic idea of Slay the Spire and adds in a a tower defense component and a dash of Magic the Gathering. It’s one of this year’s best hidden gems, so don’t miss out on it.


BioShock: The Collection (Switch) | $20 | Best Buy

It’s been quite a while since the last BioShock game came out. BioShock Infinite came out seven years ago and everyone wants to know where the series will go next. We went underwater. We flew up to the sky. What’s next? Prey is already BioShock in space. Maybe we could go to the center of the Earth, like the movie The Core. While you all think on that million dollar idea, BioShock: The Collection is $20 on Nintendo Switch over at Best Buy. The package features BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, so you can revisit all of your favorite philosophical questions and decide if they’re very outdated now. Would you kindly grab a copy?

Today is a beautiful day and you can become a horrible goose. GameStop has the physical edition of Untitled Goose Game on PlayStation 4 down to $20 today, and it’s worth grabbing if you’re a big goose fan. The package comes with a bunch of goodies, including a full map of the game’s town, a goosey sticker, an illustrated booklet (just like the good old days) and more. You can pull all of it out of the game case and scatter it around your apartment to feel more like a goose. Of course, you also get the game itself, which is a delightful stealth puzzle game about terrorizing a small town as a goose. Untitled Goose Game is one of the most wildly creative concepts to hit gaming in recent years so it’s worth picking up if you haven’t had a chance to play yet. HONK.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons + Tom Nook Stocking | $60 | Best Buy
Animal Crossing: New Horizons + Tom Nook Stocking | $60 | Best Buy

Is Tom Nook a bad guy? That was a major debate when Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out earlier this year. Some cited his predatory loans as evidence that he’s the true villain of Animal Crossing, while others pointed out that he is incredibly flexible about said loans and doesn’t even charge interest. I’m not here to dredge up that discourse, but I am here to bring us all together. Best Buy is currently selling an Animal Crossing: New Horizons bundle for $60 that includes a holiday stocking for Tom Nook. Presumably, you would fill it with bells or fish. Whether or not Nook is a crook, doesn’t he deserve to have a nice holiday season like the rest of us? Don’t be a Toy Day Grinch.


We saw Ubisoft slash the price on games like Watch Dogs: Legion, Just Dance 2021, and even Assassin’s Creed Valhalla this Blyber Weekend, but the studio just took things to another level. You can now grab Immortals: Fenyx Rising for $40 at Amazon. The game is quite literally brand new, so that’s about as fast a price cut as you can expect. Ubisoft’s latest open world game looks like it takes many cues from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with free climbing, gliding, and rune-like abilities that can be used to solve puzzle shrines. Except it’s about Gods. If that sounds up your alley, you can grab the PS5, PS4, Xbox, and Switch versions at a discount now.

I don’t know about you, but even pre-pandemic, I hated to go to the grocery store. I would either go up and down the aisles and get nothing or get everything—especially if I didn’t eat lunch or breakfast before my journey.

Luckily, because of a cute little sale at Best Buy, you can get your hands on a $100 Instacart Gift Card for $80, which is $20 off the original list price. So stock up on ginger ale, liquor, and all other essentials to bunker in until we can all get vaccinated later. Yes, we, unfortunately, have to outsource to keep safe, but you know, capitalism is the real villain here. Grab it before it’s gone!

For those who bother to know the writers behind these deal posts every morning, you’d know that I, Ignacia Fulcher, am a proud Afro-Latina. Along with that part of my heritage, I belong to a cute little subset of African Americans called the Gullah/Geechee. It’s a people with a rich history, and that history usually revolves around rice and community.

I’ve had to learn how to cook rice because if I didn’t? I’d be dragged within an inch of my life. That’s where this Zojirushi Induction Heating Rice Cooker comes into play. It’s $268, but it’s about $150 off the original list price of $420 and cooks 1.8 liters of all kinds of rice PERFECTLY every. Damn. Time.

If you’re tired of slaving over a hot pot each year for the holidays, I’d suggest you’d invest in this bad gadget. It’s powered with an induction heater that will cook and keep your rice warm from the bottom, sides, and lid, which means you can open it up and see a steaming Carolina blend, or black-eyed peas and rice staring at you beautifully. It’s truly the chef’s kiss of small kitchen appliances, and as a seasoned rice maker? It’s worth the money.

Of course, you can choose the intensity of the coffee and can pick from 4-, 8-, 10-, and 12-ounce cups. This is a great deal, and I would hop on it before it’s gone!

Make fun of UGG if you want but they’re having a bit of a moment and a resurgence. Maybe Tom Brady was on to something? I’ve been a fan for years and I actually wear my classic II short boots just around my apartment because they are so warm. It’s like walking on a snuggly cloud. That same quality and coziness translates to all of UGG’s line including their Classic Sherpa Throw Blankets.

Chris Evans may think he cornered the market when he wore that cream-colored cable knit sweater in Knives Out but I say nay! Yes, he did look amazing but the sweater did a lot of the work. (I know that’s not true but stay with me.) Cable-Knit Sweaters are a classic look that’s sharp and cozy. These Club Room ones are 60% off and are perfect warm winter wear for the season. This sale will run until Sunday. And FYI the one he wore in the movie is $178 so this is a much better deal.

These are soft, sleek, and all cotton. Stay chic and snug in a versatile sweater in a very recognizable style. This s a traditional crew neck and can be dressed up or down with simple layering. These were made just for Macy’s and come in nine colors.

Buy One, Get One 50% off Soap & Glory | Ulta Beauty
Image: Sheilah Villari

While visiting the UK in 2007 I ran into Boots (an awesome drug store chain) because I was looking for lotion. The flat I was staying in made my skin so dry but lucky for me I discovered The Righteous Butter from Soap & Glory and we’ve been together since. From now until December 24 grab two of your faves and get 50% off one. from one of the best brands I’ve ever tried.

Another old favorite that we can all use right now is Hand Food ($8). If you’re compulsively washing your hands and noticing they’re going through the wringer treat them to some silky soft relief. It’s non-greasy and is made with shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow. It’s slightly scented but in no way overwhelming. I usually have a travel size of this in my bag.

Exfoliating is important to achieving soft skin. Cleaning away dead skin, dirt, and grim is the way to get there. I use Scrub Of Your Life ($12) when I want something a little more heavy-duty. This is usually when I plan on using a tattoo balm and the only way to make those pieces sing is by really scrubbing them first. This buffs each tattoo, but also scrubs dry elbows in winter, and deep cleans my pores when needed. It has as the classic “pink fragrance,” again not too much but just a hit of floral and fruit. This will leave your skin in the perfect spot for ultimate moisturizing.

Say hello to my new favorite product. My face has never been so soft in my life. The Glow Your Mind Nourishing Cleansing Balm ($14) far exceeded my expectations. It’s velvety and gentle but still finds away to get rid of makeup remnants. Whatever Soap & Glory is doing with this product, keep doing it. I actually get excited to use this every day. They call it a balm-to-milk formula that’s got vitamin C and 4 loving oils: marula, avocado, apricot, and jojoba. This one is virtually scentless but total perfection.

Free shipping on all orders over $35.

There’s an old beauty trick of wearing bright red lipstick to make your teeth look whiter. This was a cheaper option than buying a usually very expensive whitening kit. Well, today is your lucky day.

On the east coast, we finally got our first snowfall, and it has reminded me that everyone should have a pair of warm slippers to avoid cold, hardwood floors. If you have carpet, this isn’t the post for you. You can grab a pair of women’s moccasin slippers (weird appropriation of Native American culture, but go off), or a pair of men’s clog slippers for $100 at Macy’s. You know the deal—Uggs are made out of real sheep’s fur and skin, so it’ll keep your feet insulated and happy whenever you wear them. What are you waiting for?

I’m becoming a big fan of these novelty marital aids. Yes, these are completely functional and this one really gets the job done but it’s stupid cute. The Satisfyer Pro Penguin is back in stock at Ella Paradis so they took 41% off for the holidays. To celebrate spend this cold day snowed-in with something that knows how to handle it all and you. Let this adorable little vibe warm you up.

The Satisfyer collection across the board is incredibly elite especially their clitoral stimulators. I was married to their Pro 2 for most of the lockdown. The Pro Penguin is basically the same except a dressed-up version, literally. It’s sweet, petite, and in that classic tux complete with a bowtie. Each of these has a lot of power for their size and are relatively quiet too, which is surprising given said power. There are eleven intensity settings if needed but in all honesty, you’re satisfied so quick you rarely need to take it...all the way to eleven. They live up to the name for sure.

People like to make fun of cubic zirconia, but it makes great costume jewelry and is excellent as a starter piece for younger members of the family.
