The holidays are here, and shipping deadlines are already starting to close in. We get it, you like to procrastinate and push things off until tomorrow, but one tomorrow too many may mean that you don’t get your gifts in time to give them. There are a lot of great deals that are available right now, some of which we’ve seen since Black Friday, others which have just reduced in price again. Take a look through this great roundup, and get your orders in now, before it’s too late.
Soundcore Liberty Lite Earbuds
Truly wireless headphones are taking over, and if you’re not interested in spending a ton of money to try a pair out, these are the ones to get. Anker normally sells these for over $60, and this is one of the best direct price drops we’ve ever seen on them.
Tiny but powerful
TP-Link Wi-Fi Mini Smart Plug
Smart plugs allow you to control things like your lamps, coffee maker, scent warmers, and more from just about anywhere in the world. You can automate them to turn on and off at specified times, and this small option from TP-Link lets you put two of them in the same receptacle. It usually sells for closer to $30, and hasn’t been this cheap before.
16 Million Color Options
Philips Hue 2-Bulb Color Starter Kit
When it comes to smart bulbs, Philips Hue usually ranks right up at the top. With this comes a price, but if you look around you can often find a nice little savings. This kit normally costs almost double this, and it comes with the required hub and two color bulbs to get your obsession going.
Let robots do the work
iRobot Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum
Robot vacuums are becoming far more popular, and it’s because they do a great job of cleaning your floor for you while you do something else.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd-Gen)
The Echo Dot isn’t as obvious a choice as some of the others, but many of these smart home and security devices integrate well with Amazon’s Alexa for voice control. If you want to future-proof your house even more, the Echo Dot is a great way to bring those smart home gadgets all together with ease.
NVIDIA Shield TV
The Shield TV has been out for quite a while at this point, but NVIDIA keeps updating it with new features, and it really just keeps getting better. It’s a great streaming video box, and a pretty good gaming box as well. Normally, it sells for closer to $180.

Eufy Smart Scale C1
Another great way to keep track of your progress next year is with a smart scale. It stores all your info and syncs with the free Eufy Life app so you can see progress, trends, and weights from specific times if you want. It regularly costs over $40, so don’t miss your chance to save.
Professional Grade Security
Ring Alarm System
You don’t need to lock into a contract or pay a huge lump sum of money to add some professional grade security to your home. Ring’s Alarm system is currently $90 off and you can install it yourself within minutes. For $10 a month or $100 a year, you get 24/7 professional monitoring and some extra peace of mind at home.
Time is winding down, and the closer we get to the holidays the higher the risk that something won’t arrive on time. You should stop delaying your purchases and make them now so you aren’t the one giving an IOU out in a few weeks.
