Gift-buying season is in full swing, but there’s no reason to bust your budget. We see a lot of deals around the web over on Kinja Deals, but these were our ten favorites today.
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: Mesh routers
Mesh routers have, uh, routed the rest of the Wi-Fi industry over the last couple of years, and the popular Luma system is on sale for an all-time low $150 for a pack of three routers with promo code 20OFFLUM.
Rather than relying on a single base station to fill your entire home with Wi-Fi, Luma uses three of them to create a dense mesh of connectivity, making dead zones a thing of the past. Plus, they include some neat software for parents like automatic content filtering and daily time limits for specific devices.
#2: yamaha gold box
Need some gear to start the next hit band? Amazon’s running a Gold Box deal on keyboards, guitars, speakers, and more from Yamaha, today only.
Now is the time to get the hell outside, mainly because the weather is mild, but also because our president is hellbent on getting rid of public lands and you may not be able to hike anywhere by next year. So, REI is helping you get outside with an extra 25% off all their sale items, no code needed.
#4: the versatile griddler
With the ability to transform into a grill, an electric griddle, or a sandwich press, Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $45, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
Why stop there though? Add the optional waffle iron plates to your cart, and get even more use out of your new toy.
#5: RTIC CHILL
RTIC’s top-selling 30 ounce vacuum insulated tumbler just got a design refresh, and the new model is down to an all-time low $8 on Amazon right now. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who didn’t love these things, so it’d make a great little gift.
RTIC also makes our readers’ favorite coolers, and all three sizes are on sale for about $18-$25 less than usual, in a variety of new colorways. I have the 20-can model, and yes, it really does keep ice frozen for days on end.
#6: zelda encylopedias
Have any Nintendo fans that you need to cross off your shopping list? Both the Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia and Art & Artifacts hardcover books are down to their best prices in months right now. Both are less than $20, and include hundreds of pages of exclusive Zelda art, lore, and fan service.
#7: indestructible umbrellas
You could buy a $5 umbrella every time you get caught in a storm, only to watch it disintegrate before you get to safety, or you could invest in a Blunt umbrella for 20% off.
Blunt umbrellas feature rounded safety tips to avoid poking anyone in the eye, include a special pocket for a Tile device tracker, and most importantly, can withstand winds of up to 72 mph (in the case of the standard model, others are lower). For reference, tropical storms become hurricanes at 74 mph, so if your Blunt ever succumbs to the wind, you probably have bigger things to worry about. You can see it in action in the video above, which personally left me slack-jawed.
Note: Make sure you’re buying from the BLUNT USA listing, not the Amazon.com listing, or else the code won’t work. You’ll still get Prime shipping.
These umbrellas hardly ever go on sale, but this week only, you can save 20% on either size, and in any color, with promo code 97CBRENE. The most popular models are the Classic and the smaller Metro:
#8: indoor & outdoor games
Instead of listing a bunch of products here, see the highlights in our breakout post.
#9: Card games
You know the guy that makes The Oatmeal webcomic? He does card games too, and two of them are cheaper than ever on Amazon right now.
The newer Bears vs. Babies is probably worth $21 just for the furry box, but once you open it up, you’ll find a family-friendly monster-building game that you can get through in just 20 minutes.
For an adults-only experience, Exploding Kittens NSFW Edition is down to an all-time low $16 as well. This once broke Kickstarter records, and boasts a 4.3 star review average from nearly 4,000 customers.
#10: toys & collectibles
If your kid or someone else on your gift list can’t get enough of Frozen, Moana, or Mickey Mouse, sift through Amazon’s favorite character Gold Box and pick up discounts on all kinds of dolls, action figures, and puppets.
They even have some items targeted to collectors, like these Game of Thrones Funko Pop Game of Thrones figurines and Star Trek collectibles. These deals will only last through the end of the day or until the products sell out, so hop to it!
