Valentine’s Day is a few short weeks away, which means it’s time to think about presents — for your partner, your gal pals, and of course, for yourself.

Amazon is treating us this weekend with massive discounts on just about everything you’d want to give or receive for the big day, be it a stunning new TV, noise-canceling headphones, and even a Shiatsu neck massager for the times you just want to kick back and relax. Even if you’re not celebrating V-Day, these deals are way too big to ignore — and discounts this big rarely last long, either.

Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV—Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100! The TV delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality—both of which are rare in this price range. It really stands out. The audio, too, is top notch. Plus, Alexa is included in its remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles (and who is), you can just say, “Alexa, play Knives Out,” and she’ll make your wish come true.

“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” reports a satisfied Amazon shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size.”

Wait, what? The new eighth-generation Apple iPad is already discounted? Yes, dear ones, your eyes do not deceive you. Although it was just released last month, the newest Apple iPad is currently on sale. Amazon has slashed $30 off the price, bringing it down from $329 to just $299.

With up to 10 hours of battery life, the latest iPad iteration (32GB/Wi-Fi model) has the same impressive 10.2-inch display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3GB of memory as the last version, but it features a speedier processor. You’ll notice—and appreciate—the speed with any videos, web sites, or games. (For tech nerds playing from home, the speed comes from Apple’s A12 Bionic chip).

“I love it! It’s fast and easy to use plus it’s super affordable compared to the other models,” wrote a thrilled Amazon shopper. “The display is beautiful and picture quality is great...It’s working great, the multitasking is amazing and it’s like I have a mini laptop everywhere I go. Perfect for students, the screen quality is amazing and the battery lasts all day long.”

“These Sony headphones are perfect. They sync easily and the sound is clear,” raved a five-star Amazon reviewer. “The noise-canceling feature is great and often annoys my wife and kids when I can't hear them. These are very comfortable....The charging is quick and the battery life is very good.”

On sale from $250 to just $160, the Beats Powerbeats Pro in Lava Red and Spring Yellow have everything a great pair of wireless headphones should have: a compact build, a nine-hour battery life, stylish and functional ear hooks that provide a secure fit and, most important, top-notch sound with rich bass. They also feature the brand’s ‘Fast Fuel’ technology that gives about an hour-and-a-half of battery life on a five-minute charge. Now that’s fast.

“First, I need to start with the fact that I’m extremely picky when it comes to headphones and I’ve bought over 20 pairs from Amazon from brands to no brands,” one enthusiastic reviewer shared. “These are the first pair of headphones that I’ve worn to the gym that have not needed a single adjustment! The seal is great and it just doesn’t move!”

On sale for $137 (was $260), the Deenkee Robot Vacuum—which comes with a handy remote control—is a hidden gem on Amazon, thanks to its powerful suction with multiple cleaning modes. Say goodbye to pet hair, dander, dust, dirt, crumbs and other icky things. The machine has smart object detection, so it’ll successfully avoid bumping into tables and chairs, and it’s smart enough to stay away from stairs, too.

“I am simply loving it. It has exceeded my expectations for the price I paid. Suction power on this vacuum is just right and the battery lasts quite a while,” shared a five-star Amazon reviewer. “It came with an extra spin brush and filter. I love the fact there is no app on this unit and you control it with a remote control. At first I was paranoid it might not detect the stairs, but it did turn around just in time.”

A powerful blender doesn’t need to cost a fortune. This one by Ninja is so much more than just a blender — it’s an entire system. The set comes with a 72-ounce pitcher with a two horsepower blade that pulverizes ice, veggies, fruits and more, plus an included eight-cup food processor can make up to two pounds of dough in just 30 seconds. It even comes with two to-go cups!

“I LOVE my Ninja,” writes one of 12,600 five-star reviewers. “This speeds up prep time in the kitchen so much, and it is incredibly powerful. I wanted to make homemade frozen yogurt with frozen fruit and almond milk yogurt, and this does the job magnificently. Smoothies, soups, sauces, doughs, salsas, vegan cheesecake, vegan cheese, shredded chicken... I've made a ton in it already and have only had it for two weeks.”

There’s a time and a place for bold prints — and for the other days, there’s the LBD of face masks. Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling surgical mask features three-ply coverage with a melt-blown cloth surrounded by two non-woven layers for ultimate protection. Bonus: They come in elegant black or your choice of nine other fun colors.

“This product has improved my impression on wearing masks through this pandemic. This mask I can tolerate and wear all day at work, keeping my clients and self safe. I am a caregiver, so there is no break from covering my face. Me and this mask are married for 12 hours all day every day, haha. I have shared this product with my family members and other caregivers and workers that come out and visit the clients’ homes and they were able to tell a huge difference between their original mask and this product,” writes a rave reviewer.

“I have three cats and three kittens and they ALL love the cat tree!” one shopper shared. “Even my big fat cat climbs to the very top and doesn't seem to mind his sides rolling off - because it's not made for a cat his size. But it works for a cat his size. My kittens will pile on top of each other sharing a space. The love the boxes and they love the spires. They use the scratching post parts too!”
