This is probably your final four days of Christmas shopping, so let’s finish off that gift list. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Monday.
Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
#1: shockingly-great $14 shower head
The shower head that came preinstalled in your home or apartment is probably terrible, but if you don’t have the cash to upgrade it to a Delta In2ition, the Delta 75152 is a fantastic option for just $14, an all-time low.
Aside from a single switch that toggles between 2.5 and 1.85 gallons per minute, this showerhead doesn’t have any notable features to speak of. But I can tell you from years of experience that its water coverage is beyond excellent. Each of the four valves uses Delta’s H2Okinetic system to agitate the water and create a full, perfectly dispersed wall of water, rather than four individual streams. It’s a difficult sensation to describe, but I absolutely recommend you try it for yourself, especially at this price.
#2: instant pot mini
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that. The newest,
pint-sized 3Qt Instant Pot Mini wants a permanent home on your kitchen counter, and it’s $10 off once again, if you missed out on a bevy of Black Friday discounts.
Perfectly sized for any apartment, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts, so this is a great deal for procrastinators.
#3: Reader’s favorite lightning cable
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:
- PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.
- PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.
- PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.
That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because they’ve combined the best of all of their cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 6' Lightning version today for the first time ever. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last Lightning cable you’ll ever have to buy. Get it in black or red today for $12, or about $6 less than usual, no promo code required.
#4: uniqulo outerwear
Get your winter apparel in order with down for $60 and under at Uniqlo. Pick up their down vest for just $40, for men and women, or opt for a full outerwear with their classic Ultra Light Down Jacket for $60, both men and women as well.
#5: battery pack
There are precious few battery packs out there with USB-C power delivery, and this 26,500mAh model from Aukey is one of the most affordable we’ve seen.
In addition to the two standard USB output ports, the USB-C port works as both an input and high-speed output port that can charge a 12" MacBook at full speed, or charge your Nintendo Switch’s battery level while playing it at full brightness. It’s pretty huge, but 26,500mAh should be enough juice to power your devices for hours or days on end. Just be sure to use promo code AUXMAS15 at checkout to get it for $56.
It doesn’t come with a USB-C power brick to recharge itself at full speed, but that’s also on sale today for $28. You can, of course, recharge the battery with any USB charger, but this will be significantly faster.
#6: up to 94% off nordstrom rack
It ain’t Clear the Rack, but it’ll do. Nordstrom Rack is taking huge discounts off almost 500 items, for both men and women. Last minute gifts, things for yourself, holiday party outfits, you name it and this sale has something. Things start at just $5, but they’re already selling out, so you might want to head over there now.
#7: tuft & needle
If you were caught sleeping on Amazon’s Casper mattress deal yesterday, you can rest easy, as they’re running a similar Gold Box deal today on similar mattresses from Tuft & Needle.
The concept here is basically the same as any other bed-in-a-box company. The mattress is made of foam, and thus can be vacuum sealed into a relatively small shipping box. You can try it for up to 100 days, and if you decide it’s not for you, they’ll come pick it up from your house and refund all of your money. If you’re currently using an inner spring mattress though, I think you’re going to be very, very happy.
Tuft & Needle’s mattresses are somewhat less expensive than Casper’s even at their regular MSRP, but Amazon’s taking an extra 20%+ off today, which is far more than you’d ever save when buying from Tuft & Needle directly. Prices range from $250-$550, with queens checking in at $450, down from their usual $575.
I can’t say I’ve ever given much thought to where I keep my ketchup and sauce packets while I eat in the car, but there’s basically no good option, right? If you put it on top of your dashboard, it could fly off and make a mess. Keep it at the bottom of your console, and you’ll have to blindly stab at it with your fries if you want to keep your eyes on the road. But my favorite Kickstarter project of all time gives us a third option: Your air vent.
The DipClip is basically one of those air vent smartphone mounts, but for sauce. It’s a little plastic frame that’s perfectly sized to hold those little plastic tubs from most restaurants. And if your fast food joint of choice only offers packets, it comes with a ramekin too that you can clean out once you get home. They sent me a demo unit, and I was impressed how sturdy it felt attached to my vents, though obviously, that might vary depending on your car.
It’s such a stupidly simple idea, but it solves an actual problem—albeit a first world one—and solves it brilliantly. The DipClip is already fully funded, but you can still preorder some and save on the MSRP. Prices start at just $15 for two complete sets, with larger discounts when you order more.
We sort through the noise of Kickstarter to find you preorder discounts worth taking advantage of. Someone on our team has tested a prototype (or final version) of every Kickstarter we cover.
#9: air mattress
That’s more than you’d pay for most air mattresses, but this one includes a built-in never-flat pump which silently trickles more air into the mattress overnight, meaning it’ll still be fully inflated come morning. If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is.
It’s been cheaper before, but this is the best price Amazon’s listed in a few months, if you have any use for it coming up in the near future.
Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with four black and four white packs from Amazon for just $11, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
