Procrastinators, you have maybe one day of gift shopping left. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Thursday.
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: charging devices
Whether you know someone who just bought an iPhone X or 8, or if you need a gift for someone who’s been an Android user for years, wireless charging pads are one of the hottest gifts of the year.
This RAVPower fast charging pad is actually The Verge’s pick for best one you can buy. Even at today’s all-time low $33, it’s more expensive than others we’ve seen, but that’s largely due to the fact that it includes a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger, ensuring all Qi-compatible phones will receive the fastest possible charge. Just note that iPhones won’t be able to take full advantage of that speed.
As part of the same Amazon Gold Box deal, you can also snag a massive 26,800mAh battery pack for the same price. It doesn’t have advanced features like Quick Charge or USB-C, but that’s a great price-per-mAh ratio.
#2: last minute toys
If you have any kids (or large adult Nerf gun lovers) left on your holiday shopping list, Amazon’s pushing out one last big toy sale for the holidays, with discounts on action figures, board games, and more. Just remember that these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
The Nespresso Essenza Mini still achieves 19 bars of pressure, well above the 15 you really need for decent espresso, and it does it while only taking up a small sliver of counter space. This model (designed by Breville) usually sells for over $100, and $60 is easily an all-time low. We briefly saw it for $75 on Black Friday, and we thought that was a great deal.
#4: playstation vr
Black Friday’s most popular PlayStation VR bundle is finally back in stock for the same $349 we saw during Deals Week. That gets you the headset, the camera, two Move controllers, and a copy of Skyrim. Just remember that if you take an arrow to the knee, it’s not actually real.
#5: breville mini
Typically selling around $150, you can start cooking in the small-kitchen-friendly model of our readers’ favorite toaster oven, the Breville Mini Smart Oven for $125. It’s at the cheapest price it’s been since October, so if you’ve been thinking about it, today is a good day to pull the trigger.
I bought a similar model on Black Friday and am obsessed with it. But, you don’t have to take my word for it, here’s what our readers love about it:
Simply the best toaster oven you can get without buying a commercial convection oven. Since buying it we only use the big oven for Thanksgiving. Heats up quick, and 100 times more even than that POS you had in college. - SteveG
Whether you need a small card for a dash cam, or a ton of space for Nintendo Switch games and 4K GoPro footage, these Samsung microSD cards down to their lowest prices in all four of the capacities listed below.
The TRX Suspension Trainer kit can give you a full body workout in your house without the space commitment of an actual home gym, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $100, today only. If you have any fitness-focused new year’s resolutions starting soon, this will give you a fighting chance to actually achieve them.
Funny story: The last time it was this cheap? 12/21/16.
#8: mattress & Mattress pads
In addition to the toppers, Amazon has double discounted the mattresses included in the Gold Box when you clip the 15% off coupon. Those start at just $66 and 6-inch thick, to a plush 14-inch thick mattress, starting at $238. Just remember, you won’t be able to see the 15% off until checkout.
#9: philips hue
If you need a last minute gift for anyone who already owns Philips Hue lights, you could do a lot worse than a spare Hue bulb for $40, or $10 less than usual. These were available for $32 around Black Friday for a few days, but otherwise, $40 is about as cheap as they ever get.
Look, I’m not judging you on the fact that you’re buying gifts less than a week before Christmas, but here we are. Amazon has a great watch sale, with brands like Casio, Nixon, Daniel Wellington, Timex, and more for to help you not have an “Oh shit” moment come the night of the 24th. But time’s a-tickin’ on this deal and these prices only last until the end of the day.
