Which kind of holiday shopper are you? The type who starts thinking about options at the first hint of crisp weather, searching high and low for just-right presents that you know will wow? Or do you jet to the store two hours before closing time on December 24?
Whichever camp you fall into, we’ve got you covered. If you’re a planner, we’ve got a slew of gifts to consider for all those different characters in your life. If you like to fly by the seat of your holiday pants, we’re going to make it super-easy for you to shop—and save your Christmas Eve.
Fair warning: Holiday season is shorter this year. With Thanksgiving falling so late in the month, there are six fewer shopping days between Black Friday and Christmas. Just more reason to get in the game pronto.
To help you out, we’ve partnered with Walmart.com for a fabulous 30 Days of Savings event, running all through November.
One of today’s incredible deals? Perhaps the best vacuum ever. Perfect for the clean freak on your list—or the person who needs some help in the cleaning department—this lightweight vacuum is so fun to drive, it makes sucking up dirt and debris a pleasure. We particularly love that the entire handle lifts up and out of the machine to clean high corners, drapes and ceiling fans.
LED lights on the nozzle guide the way like Rudolph (and make those dust bunnies easier to spot), and the HEPA filter eradicates allergens from pets and more.
And it’s so easy to maneuver, you’ll have to hold on tight! “It's very, very powerful,” says one happy reviewer. “So much so, it almost seems to ‘take off.’ It actually pulls slightly forward as though it's trying to take flight! It cleans the carpet so well. I was kind of grossed out how much it pulled up!”

Sure, a freezer might seem like an unusual present. But hear us out: Imagine giving this to the Costco lover on your list, for all those family-size chicken packs and bags of French fries. Oh, who are we kidding—you’ll want this baby for yourself. That way, when you spot a good sale, you can go crazy and stock up.
It’s just the right height for kids to help themselves to frozen treats, too.
The 7-cubic-foot freezer is lightweight, with recessed handles for easy toting, and has a handy removable basket for organizing your goodies.
Use it in the kitchen as a second freezer, or put it in the basement, laundry room or anywhere it makes sense: “Fits perfectly in my mud room,” says a freezer fan. “I have two refrigerator/freezers and neither of them fits boxed frozen pizza. This is a great size that fits everything that I need when my grandkids come over: popsicles, extra bags of ice, frozen mac and cheese... you name it! Highly recommend! Lightweight and easy to set up...just plug in!”

Got a little one in your life? Especially one that wants to be held constantly to the point where even doing the dishes becomes a chore? Babies (best for ages six to 12 months) will jump for joy when they see this cheer station, complete with lights, sounds and 12 fun toys that’ll keep their attention like no TV show could.
A swivel seat rotates 360 degrees for around-the-world action. “This was a gift from grandma and my daughter loves it,” says a pleased parent. “It buys me at least 30 minutes so I can cook dinner while keeping an eye on her. I like that she can’t travel around the house in it but can still jump and turn herself around in it to play with all sides.”
Shop it: Bright Starts Disney Baby Minnie Mouse PeekABoo Activity Jumper, $79 (was $84), walmart.com
Ok, now this is getting ridiculous: A TV for 100 bucks? It’s true. Why spend the money on a silk scarf for your mother-in-law or a winter coat for your son when you can buy an entire boob tube!
Complete with Roku, for access to 450,000 TV shows and movies (seriously), it gets rave reviews for everything from its super-sharp picture to great sound that stays crisp even when blasted.
And yes, you can gift it to your tech-challenged friend—it’s easy to set up and use. We swear. And at 32 inches, it’s an ideal size for a guest bedroom, play room or teenager’s hideaway. Or yours—as this reviewer says: “Perfect size for my bedroom. Very nice picture and sound.....I can even enjoy YouTube music videos that I love right from the comfort of my bedroom since my husband doesn't care for my videos.”
Shop it: RCA 32" Class HD 720P Roku Smart LED TV RTR3260-W, $100 (was $180), walmart.com
Getting someone a laptop (yes, you’ll win the gift-giver of the year award) doesn’t have to cost you a thousand bucks. In fact, with this crazy deal, you won’t even need to shell out $250! This super-lightweight, super-thin laptop is packed with awesome features.
The keyboard lifts up for more comfortable typing and heat dissipation, and the backlit keyboard is perfect for typing by moonlight. It’s even got a fingerprint reader so you can log in quickly and safely (and feel like James Bond).
“Boy did this machine exceed my expectations,” says a satisfied customer. “My last two laptops have been Macs but I think this purchase officially converted me to PC. The build quality is slick, with thin bezels and a high resolution display. The performance is quick—it loads webpages, movies and games in a flash. I also love that it comes with all the necessary ports (USB, HDMI and USB-C) unlike my last Mac which only had a USB-C port and required converters for just about everything.”

No wrapping necessary—put a big red bow on this baby and watch your lucky recipient ride into the sunset. Designed for on and off-road adventures, the bike has 29-inch wheels, 21 speeds and a steel frame that can handle rocky roads.
The dual colors are cool enough to suit that teenager in your life too (it’s recommended for ages 14 and up).
And it’s easy to share the love: a quick-release seat adjustor lets you change the height for different riders. “A great quality bike for getting around town,” one thrilled reviewer reports. “My bike IS my car, and I use it for everything (groceries, laundry, etc.). Haven't been on trails yet, but she performs like a champ so far.”
