It’s here! The day we’ve all been waiting for: Black Friday. But there’s no need to put on real clothes, crank on the car and go fight the crowds to get down to some serious shopping. We’ve teamed up with Walmart for our 30 Days of Savings event to bring the best sales right to you at home. Just scroll down to find unbelievable savings and ideas for everyone on your list. Hey, after all this hard work, you deserve to get something for yourself, too (wink wink).

Want to score free shipping and early sale access? This year, for the first time, Walmart+ paying members will receive exclusive four-hour early access to all online Black Friday events throughout November! Plus, you’ll get free shipping (on everything — there’s no order minimum!) and unlimited free delivery on groceries. That’ll make your life easier through the holidays and beyond. Sign up for your free 15-day trial here (note that you need a paid membership to get early access to the deals), and a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)

1. Get the fan-favorite Instant Pot for $89

If you have one, you know. The Instant Pot really is everything it claims to be: a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer and more in one convenient package. Whether you gift this beloved multi-cooker to your newlywed niece, your grandson who just got his own apartment or your grandma, it’s bound to get used for something. And once they see how fast and easy it makes cooking, they’ll be hooked.

“I love to slow cook meals and use my electric slow cooker a lot, but there are times when I want slow cooker flavor and tenderness but don’t have six to eight hours to cook a meal,” says one. “This is where I felt the Instant Pot would shine, but after a couple weeks of use I realize that there is so much more to it.” Says another: “We made our first meal in the Instant Pot the other day, which was ribs, and what would normally take four to six hours in a slow cooker took only 35 minutes using the meats/stew button…and the ribs fell off the bone! I couldn’t believe I could have dinner done that quickly!” That’s better than a gift card to their favorite restaurant for sure.

Pets, kids — bring on the sloppiest, gloppiest messes. This live-saving Bissell CrossWave cleaner can tackle them all.

Pet owners will love that it has a special feature to filter out pet hair and debris for easy emptying. And here’s a bonus: Every purchase supports the Bissell Pet Foundation to help homeless pets. Over 2,000 shoppers award it five stars. “Where have you been all my life?” says one shopper, summing up all the pros. “I was looking for a rug and furniture cleaner and came across the Bissell CrossWave…and decided to purchase it. I’m so amazed! It’s light and easy to handle and use. I love the way the head swirls to get into corners. My floors are cleaner—no more sponge mop and pulling out the big vacuum.” This time (and back) saver is a true gift.

9. Chill out with this stainless steel party fridge

To quote the immortal Chris Farley in Tommy Boy, “You could put six packs of bee—soda in here, milk, yogurt… anything you want to keep cool.” A mini fridge just might be the perfect unexpected present. This Midea model is classy enough for the home bar, but affordable enough for the pool cabana or man cave. As one savvy shopper says, “This fridge gets colder than most others on the market, which usually have a min of 40 degrees.” It also has a solid stainless steel frame with a glass door (so guests can see inside), and the glass shelves (not plastic) are durable and easy to clean. More signs of good quality: the LED lights illuminating the interior and the leveling legs that make steady installation a breeze.

“We have four grown children and nine grands, plus great nieces and nephews that use our pool and enjoy our *Fun Fridge* that’s in the garage,” says another shopper. It’s a cool bargain.

Trust us, they’ll be stoked. (Photo: Walmart)

Nothing’s cozier than a fireplace in the winter. Know somebody who’d love to snuggle up in front of one? You don’t need to surprise them with a new house — just this ultra charming ChimneyFree heater. It puts out enough warmth to keep 1,000 square feet of space toasty, and the glowing logs look as realistic as it gets. It’s powered by infrared quartz, so it won’t dry out their place (or their skin), and they can adjust the temperature ’til it’s perfect via the built-in thermostat. Unlike gas logs, these don’t put out any unhealthy fumes into your home, either. Rest assured it’s safe to use around kids and pets.

Over 1,000 shoppers agree it will make the season bright. “It’s adorable and puts out good heat and the fire image is remarkably realistic,” says one. “I love this heater, so much so I bought two of them,” says another. BYO chestnuts and enjoy this open fire.

Smooth move, you. (Photo: Walmart)

For the one you call sweet cheeks, the ultimate shave. This razor and shaver has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for three weeks of run time on one charge (yep, they can take it in the car) and smart technology that auto-detects beard density. In other words, it’ll make quick work of any length or texture of hair. Plus, it’s waterproof, so they can use it wet or dry, and multitask in the shower when they’re hustling.

“This has been the best shaver I have ever used,” says one satisfied shopper. “The attachment was great to use for clean lines and didn’t irritate my skin. The cleaning system is what’s been missing in my life.” Perfect stubble and no razor burn — thank you, Santa.

If you’ve been working from home and missing your office printer, this Canon beauty’s about to make your life a whole lot easier. Of course, anyone you gift it to will appreciate it — whether for presentations, briefs, or Instagram photos they want to frame. It prints in color and black-and-white, holds up to 60 sheets of paper at once, and can accommodate XL ink cartridges so they won’t have to swap it as often.

Most printers get lavished with four-letter words, not five-star reviews. One reviewer says, “This one machine does everything: copy, print, and scan. Besides regular paper, you can print envelopes or pics on glossy paper that look like photos that were professionally printed.” Can’t beat that for $40!
