Know someone who deserves to take it easy? Give them the gift of gleaming floors with a sleek, smart robot vacuum for just $99.

Well, 1,700-plus five-star reviews say the brand’s budget robovac gives you the cleaning power of bigger name competitors at a much tidier price, especially with this deal (available through November 7).
Even better: It’s got features that make it ideal for picking up pet hair, something not all vac makers can claim. “I love my Eufy Robovac!” exclaims one shopper (and self-professed meticulous housekeeper) who points out that its edge cleaning feature enables it to skim walls and furniture, leaving no spec behind. “Everyone in my family is getting one for Christmas this year!” Says another who owns seven (yes, seven) pets: “I’m amazed at how much pet hair it picks up!” At under $100, it’s a clean sweep for your whole list.

Get your coffee on anywhere. (Photo: Walmart)
When it comes to pod coffee makers, 6,000-plus reviewers agree Keurig is the only sensible choice. “BUY ONLY THIS BRAND, NO OTHER!!!” says one java-loving shopper who experimented with other machines. This mini machine fits easily on a desktop or crowded countertop since it’s just eight inches wide — about a quarter of the size of a standard machine. Small but mighty, you might say: It still holds 36 oz. of water at a time, enough to make multiple cups of what enthusiasts describe as strong, flavorful coffee, and fast.
“How have I gone so long without this machine?” exclaims another shopper. “It took less than 45 seconds for my cup to fill with coffee. The coffee was hot, smelled amazing, and tasted excellent.” The coffee lovers in your life will thank you every time they press “Brew.” At just $35 during this week’s Deals for Days sale, you can order one for yourself, too.

Behold Ceramic Shield: It makes this iPhone’s screen the strongest ever. Apple says its iPhone 12 Mini delivers four times better drop performance and industry-leading water resistance. That makes it the ideal upgrade for accident prone folks — not to mention parents of toddlers. Add to that a high-quality 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display, ultra-fast movie and streaming speeds and an advanced dual camera system, and you’ve got a gift literally anyone would love to receive.
Shoppers tout its anti-crack and anti-water superpowers as well as its longer charge. “Not kidding about toughness,” says one happy shopper. “Feels bigger on screen but I can do it all with just one hand. I’ve dropped it repeatedly and also got it wet. Such an improved battery.” “The screen is amazing,” says another. “It might be tiny, but it’s great.” At $299 (with activation) through November 7, buy one for everybody and call it a wrap.

From bacon for breakfast to cobblers for dessert and the best ever grilled cheese in between, a cast-iron skillet is one pan no home cook should go without. Really love somebody on your list? Gift them three — for under $15. This sturdy Ozark Trail set (beloved by more than 1,000 five-star reviewers) includes three versatile pieces.

“Best pans in town,” says one shopper. “They are perfect in every way. Food cooks even.” Says another: “Excellent Value!! We purchased this set a couple of months ago, and we love them.

The strips of LED lighting at either side ensure they always find their light. “I got this for Christmas last year, and I use it all the time,” says another shopper. “I have been through so many makeup mirrors trying to find one bright enough, and this one actually does the job perfectly! I can do my makeup in the dark and it’ll still turn out good because of the amount of light this thing puts out!…If you are looking for a good lighted mirror for someone who loves to do their makeup, this is the perfect gift!” At $65, this gift shines.

Everything a newbie cook could want. (Photo: Walmart)
Add few plates and cups and they’ll be dinner party pros in no time — you’ve just given them a whole kitchen. This comprehensive T-fal assortment, which comes in classic gray or cheery red, includes everything from a pot big enough for pasta and stews to a skillet ideal for one egg (plus four in-between saucepans and skillets), as well as a baking sheet and all the essential utensils. Novice cooks will love how T-fal’s Therma-Spot technology tells them when the pans are hot enough to cook on. And here’s the kicker: They’re all dishwasher safe.
Says one shopper: “I recently purchased the 12 piece Expert Pro set to replace my very first T-Fal cookware set that I bought in 1982. That’s right, 1982. That’s how long I’ve had and used my T-Fal cookware to prepare daily meals for my family. My granddaughter is now living on her own and was in need of some new cookware, so of course I purchased a set of T-Fal for her. I love the look of this 20-piece set. The nonstick surface and the Therma-Spot heat indicator makes cooking a breeze. These pots and pans are dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 350 degrees. Taken care of properly, I expect her new T-Fal set to last equally as long as my first set.” There you have it: grandma endorsed, granddaughter approved. Get it all for just $69.
