When November When combining this, plan for the holidays that you and your family will celebrate, and most importantly, make sure that any gift shopping you need is done before it’s too late. With shipping delays and shortages, your best bet is to get there early. The target is to sell early in the holidays, and a ton of our favorite gadgets, from gaming gear and kitchen gadgets to headphones, are being discounted. Some of these deals ended this past weekend, but some of the best are still circulating, such as the Dyson V8 Stick Vacuum.

Updated November 9: We’ve added some gaming and headphone deals and removed the expired ones.
Home and kitchen deals
Having a cordless stick vacuum around is a game-changer for everyday work, and one of the best prices we’ve tracked in this classic. There is something so easy-air about picking a light and cordless vacuum and cleaning a carpet or a house quickly. No need to turn out a large wired vacuum wheel. Read our best Dyson Vacs guide for more.
A pressure cooker or rice cooker is a life-changing addition to the kitchen, and both instant pots and then anything. This is a 6-quart version, a great size for two to three people (or one person with plenty left over). This is a worthy investment even if you only use it to cook rice.
Having a robot vacuum is great for keeping your floor nice and clean – especially if you have pets. You’ll still need a standard vacuum for deep or spot cleaning, but Robot Vacks are easy to get around and iRobot makes some of our favorites. For more information, see our Best Robot Vacuum Guide for more recommendations.
This is the easiest way to enter the smart home world. Plug in this smart speaker and you can ask Google Assistant something you would normally search on Google (and the results are often quite satisfactory). Once you start connecting more smart devices like smart plugs and bulbs in your home, you can talk to Nest Mini and control them with your voice. There is a physical mute switch for some peace of mind.
Plug this streaming stick into the back of your TV and you’ll find a whole new interface with almost every streaming service out there. It’s a voice remote, so you can press the mic button and tell Roku to navigate to your favorite show without looking for it in the menu. It supports 4K HDR TV. You can read more in our guide to buying Roku devices.
The Razer’s Viper series is worrisome, which is great for left-handed gamers, but it also fits perfectly for the right. The razor is smaller in standard viper profile than other rats, so it’s great for small hands. The switches are nice and touching, and the RGB lights are always fun.
Gaming mice don’t have to be expensive to be good. The HyperX Pulsfire Core proves that – it’s tough all around. You get good performance, a comfortable size and low price for boots To learn more, check out our Best Gaming Mice Roundup.
There are lots of great searches to choose from, but Target Sales has a number of new releases, fan favorites and indie games. Also a huge list of activity books, novels and board games for all ages This is a great way to try things out that you wouldn’t otherwise take — or pick a few extra gifts for loved ones.
Phones, headphones, and TV deals
These earphones are extremely secure thanks to an extra little gripy arm wrapped around your ear, and they have some incredible battery life আমরা we’ve had about nine hours of use on a single charge during testing. After all, they have the killer sound quality we’ve come to expect from Beats headphones. Just be aware that Beats has launched a new model for just $ 50 more.
Over-the-ear noise-canceling headphones are a great way to eliminate scattering, take a break from the earth, or hear the sound of rain while sleeping. The Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear features a comfortable fit, stylish finish and quite good active noise cancellation.
Slightly more basic than the fully-kitted-out Studio3, Solo3 headphones still pack rich, velvet sound in a super comfortable (and easy to wallet) package. There’s no active sound cancellation here, but they’re a great pair of headphones for everyday wear.
The holiday season is definitely the time to upgrade your TV. As we approach Black Friday and Cyber Monday, prices tend to get lower and lower. LG’s 55-inch NanoCell TV features 4K, HDR, and LG’s super-slick smart TV with UI motion-tracking remote.
TCL makes the most affordable and well-made TVs on the market. Its 6-Series is our best choice for most people. We recommend the 5-Series for anyone on a budget, but this 4-Series is quite affordable. Its HDR performance isn’t quite as good as the 6-Series, but you’re saving hundreds of dollars. There are many more great TVs for sale and we have collected them here
If you don’t want to spend too much on a smartphone, this is your best bet. The camera system isn’t amazing, but the performance is good enough to run most apps and games, and the three-day battery life will impress. You can read more about Moto G in our review.
