Let’s be honest here, thin fabric koozies are mostly useful for decoration; they don’t really keep a can cold for very long. This imposing metal Thermos contraption though? It’s the real deal.

Thermos’s stainless steel can insulator uses vacuum insulation and thick walls to actually provide a barrier between your beverage and the outside world. They go so far as to claim that it will keep a can cold for up to 3 hours, and even if that’s a little bit of marketing hyperbole, what could possibly be in that can that takes more than an hour to drink?

Over 1,200 Amazon reviewers have given the Thermos a 4.7 star review average, and you can get one (or more!) for just $10 right now, an all-time low. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the holidays, so check out before they sell out. [Thermos Stainless Steel Beverage Can Insulator for 12 Ounce Can, $10]

Your pets need a holiday gift too, and Amazon’s here to help with great deals on Greenies pet treats, today only. They’ll love the taste, and you’ll love that they clean your pet’s teeth, or trick your cat into swallowing a pill. [Greenies Pet Treats are On Sale at Amazon]

Timbuk2’s durable, lifetime-warrantied bags have been incredibly popular among our readers, and their iconic Commute 13” messenger bag is marked down to $40 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.

In addition to all the pockets and buckles you’d expect, this bag actually opens up completely flat to go through airport security without removing your laptop. That’s one less minor indignity to suffer every time you travel! [Timbuk2 13” Messenger Bag, $40]

Remember the Lytro Illum? The professional-grade light field camera that could refocus and shift perspective on photos after you took them? It was undoubtedly cool, but a tough sell at its original $1600 price. But could you be tempted at $395? [LYTRO ILLUM 40 Megaray Light Field Camera, $395]

We’ve seen several deals lately on Philips’ life-changing wake-up lights, but if you’re not among the 20,000+ Gawker media readers who have already pulled the trigger, the entry level model just dropped to its lowest price ever.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, it will still nudge you awake with a gentle beep when it’s really time to get out of bed. It also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned this thing for nearly a year, and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm. [Philips HF3500/60 Wake-Up Light, $48. Clip the $10 coupon]

Wireless speakers and headphones are so affordable these days, you can give them away as crowd-pleasing stocking stuffers for the holidays.

The Capresso Infinity is the cheapest electric coffee grinder I’d normally recommend to someone who wants to get more serious about coffee, but it’s never been cheaper than $66.
