Gift-buying season is in full swing, but there’s no reason to bust your budget. We see a lot of deals around the web over on Kinja Deals, but these were our ten favorites today.
Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
Anker’s PowerCore line of battery packs have been our readers’ favorites since they debuted, and now you can save on two different sizes of its sequel, the PowerCore II.
Cosmetically, the PowerCore IIs look very similar to the original PowerCores, but with more precise eight-dot charge indicators so you know how much juice you have left. But inside, they’ve been upgraded with Anker’s new PowerIQ 2.0 charging technology, which delivers the fastest possible charging speed to your devices, including Quick Charge-compatible phones. That speed works both ways, as the entire battery will recharge in four or five hours (for the 10,000 and 20,000mAh models, respectively) if you plug them into a QC wall charger.
Buying ornaments to hang on your tree or around the house is a tradition, but sometimes those decorations are just...really old. Amazon can help you bring your decor into 2017 with this one-day sale on ornaments, LED lights, candles, and more. Whats a holiday without new decorations that you’ll see for three weeks and then not again for another 12 months?
As part of its 12 Days of Deals, Amazon’s running a big sale today on a variety of hand and power tools from a variety of manufacturers. It’s worth checking out the whole sale, but I think the two most noteworthy deals are both DEWALT bundles:
This $99 bundle includes a drill/driver kit and an area light for the price of the drill kit alone.
You can also spend $229 for a drill/driver, an impact driver, a circular saw, and a reciprocating saw. The drill/driver and impact driver kit costs $149 on its own, and the two saws cost $99 each, so we’re talking about some serious savings here.
It’s not actually part of this sale, but you can also save a ton on a pancake compressor and a brad nail gun to go with it. The bundle is priced at $110 today, while the compressor by itself costs $125, so you’re saving on that, and getting the $49 nailer for free.
If you’re just looking for some inexpensive gifts and stocking stuffers, there’s no shortage of them in this Gold Box, but here are a few highlights.
Every year around the holidays, Amazon offers a limited edition teddy bear when you order gift cards of certain denominations, and it never lasts long. 2017's bear just went live on gift cards ranging from $100-$500, so lock in your order before they’re all adopted.
Hiking can be fun, really, but only if you have the proper gear (which, a lot of times, no one has unless you’re really into hiking). These Ridgepass boots from Merrell are unoffensive, fully waterproof with removable footbeds, and they’re all 50% off. A quality hiking boot for under $65? Yeah, you’re welcome.
For one day only, Amazon’s discounting the Nebia to $500 from its usual $650, the first discount we’ve ever seen on the system. The gist of this thing is that it atomizes the water into millions of tiny droplets, and propels them at twice the speed of a regular shower stream, forming full wall of water coverage that can blast the soap right off your body. It’ll feel great, and it uses up to 70% less water than a regular shower, so in theory at least, this will pay for itself eventually.
Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $16. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,500 customers, so get it while it’s on sale today!
We posted a deal on these best-selling 33' string lights last week for $8, but today’s deal at $10 (with code XMASLIT2) includes the remote, which allows you adjust the brightness, set the twinkling speed, or simply turn off and on. So grab a couple of strands before this deals burns out.
If you don’t need the remote, the $8 deal is still going strong.
Cross off all the future engineers, architects, and LEGO lovers on your gift list with this one-day-only building set sale. It includes discounted LEGO sets, K’NEX, and Magformers, so you can be sure to get something for all ages and skills levels. Some of these, especially the LEGO sets, could sell out so grab what you need before this deal falls apart.
A really good Lightning cable is a great stocking stuffer for any iPhone owner, and two of the best are on sale right now.
Your options are a 6' nylon-braided PowerLine+ cable for $13 (no code needed), or a 3' PowerLine II cable for $10 with promo code KINJA843. The braided shell of the PowerLine+ will feel nicer, but the PowerLine II comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can’t go wrong either way. Both are offshoots of Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine product line, and either one will make Apple’s first party cables feel like cheap toys.
USB-C device owners, there’s a deal here for you too.
For the rest of Monday best deals, don’t miss our main post.
