Did we miss any of your favorite frequent fixtures on Kinja Deals? Got great gift ideas of your own? Looking for recommendations in categories we didn’t cover? Head for the comments and sound off.
For Their Entertainment
Amazon made your holiday shopping easy this year with a $50 tablet that’s probably all the tablet your family and friends need.
Anker’s latest bluetooth speaker offers a killer combination of great sound, long battery life, small form factor, and low impact price tag.
In the crowded streaming device space, we still recommend buying the cheapest current Roku that comes with a headphone port on the remote. If Mom and Dad already have a steamer or their needs only include a few TV channels, kill their cable bill with our reader favorite Mohu Leaf.
For an everyday pair of earbuds, get your friends Amazon’s excellent magnetic offering. Speaking of magnets, if they’d prefer wireless, get them the magnetic version of our ridiculously popular series of budget bluetooth headphones. If they’re a really good friend, you can’t go wrong with a pair of ATH-M50Xs.
For Keeping Their Gear Powered
Anker makes the best external batteries money can buy, and their PowerCore+ series is keeping thousands of your phones, cameras, and even MacBooks topped off.
Your traveling friends will love the Anker PowerPort 2, while those that spend a lot of time at desk will get a ton of use out of the PowerPort 6. If (you’re aware that) their phone supports it, they’ll love you for upgrading them to the faster charging with Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0. If they’re likely to need extra AC outlets on their travel, go with this reader-loved option from Belkin.
For Their Kitchen
There are a ton of tea steepers out there. We like this FORLIFE Tea Infuser because its stainless steel and has more room for the leaves than most small steepers. If you really love the giftee in question, the Breville One-Touch is the ultimate tea maker and as close to perfect as appliances get.
If they don’t already own one at this point, SodaStream remains an easy and universal gift idea.
Victorinox’s chef’s knives are one of the best values in cooking, and one of your choices for best knife. If you really like your recipient, get them this set that includes all the knives they’ll ever need.
Save your lover’s bad cooking with science. A Sous Vide will give them perfect meat, eggs, and more every time.
For Their Health and Grooming
Upgrade the humans in your life who shave away from their Gillette and save them money in the process with Dorco’s new 7-bladed razor, or introduce them to a better way to shave with a Merkur safety razor and blade sampler.
If you get the kids (or yourself) a tool that makes flossing less miserable, they’ll (you’ll) actually start flossing.
For Their Car
This Aukey charger fills up two of your devices at full speed, but sits nearly flush in your cigarette outlet.
