In a world filled with tablets, it’s tricky to know which one to buy. Let us make it simple for you: this Galaxy tablet from Samsung does it all, with speed and style, and is on sale for $139. At just over a pound, this lightweight device fits easily in the hand and comes with a generous 32GB of storage. The front-facing, 5MP camera makes video calls super crisp, while the Dolby speakers are—wait for it—surround sound, bringing voices, music, and movies to life. Complete with a fingerprint reader, fast-charging USB C port and a battery that lasts for hours, this is a best in class tablet for an even better price. Take it from this guy: “Cheaper than every competitor.” Or this guy: “$120 less than a comparable iPad.” Or this guy: “Got a better price than Amazon or Best Buy.”
This Ninja system is the kind of gadget that gets better and better as you use it. You start with the basics: fresh fruit smoothies or warm blended soups. Then you realize, this thing is pretty great, why don’t I try hummus or salsa? Soon enough, you’ll be mixing cookie batter, chopping veggies for stir-fries and whipping up pizza dough with the one-handed pulse feature. Reviewers adore this system, which comes with everything you could want: two single serve blender cups for smoothies on the go, a 72-ounce blender with Ninja’s Total Crush Technology and a food processing bowl that delivers fast and even chopping. When you’re done, it all goes in the dishwasher. “I bought this as a gift for my mother, because I have one and love it! The capacity of the containers is big enough to create some amazing recipes and not so big that anything goes to waste. Cleanup is a dream.” This Ninja set goes for twice the price at other retailers so at $99, this baby is a real steal.
We’re in a golden age of stick vacuums, and this Tineco might be the smartest of them all. The sleek, cordless vacuum combines brain and brawn into one sweet package. The iLoop Smart Sensor Technology automatically adjusts the suction level depending on the mess, which in turn conserves your battery’s life. (There’s also a handy battery level screen that displays how much life is left.) The 4 stage HEPA filtration system traps 99.97% of allergens, then releases cleaner air back into your home. Finally, the stick easily converts to a handvac, which makes getting into those pesky spaces quite a bit less, well, pesky. Need more convincing? Just check out the reviews, where “obsessed” users are calling it “perfect,” “amazing,” and “hands down one of the best stick vacuums I have ever used.”
The fastest way to get cozy, holiday vibes is by lighting a candle that smells like the season. Might we suggest this Christmas cookie candle, which brings the magic of Grandma's kitchen right into your home? Sweet and buttery, this is the candle you’ll want to light over and over. (And you can: it lasts for 110 hours.) Yankee Candles are an icon, a household favorite for 50 years. They use paraffin-grade wax and a natural fiber wick that ensures an even, consistent burn. “The smell brings memories of Christmas and good times” writes a smitten customer. Looking for a stocking stuffer or a go-to hostess gift? At $10, you might want to get a few.
A hard-sided suitcase takes the guesswork out of carry-ons. It eliminates the bloat that comes with soft-sided bags, and ensures your luggage fits easily overhead. This classic roller from Protege is constructed from 100% ABS, an engineered plastic that can be dented in transit, then flex back into its original shape. Its four multi-directional spinner wheels makes maneuvering through a busy airport a breeze, while the telescoping aluminum handle adjusts to your height. This suitcase isn’t just built well, it looks terrific. Reviewers are impressed with the unique colors (it comes in four delightful hues) and the contemporary, streamlined design. “The hard shell is protective but also looks sleek and modern.” For the thrillingly low price of $35, here’s your excuse to plan a weekend getaway.
