Here Are the Top 9 Gifts To Nab From Amazon's Cyber Monday Sale
Amazon is easily one of our fave places to shop for gifts (hello, Prime shipping). And while we're generally guilty of waiting until the week before Christmas to place our orders, this year we're getting ahead of things because Amazon's Cyber Monday deals are just too good to pass up. We're talking AirPods at their absolute cheapest, and Amazon Fire Sticks for 50% off. Here are the 9 best gifts to pick up from Amazon's Cyber Monday sale before they sell out.
1. Apple AirPods with Charging Case (Was $159; Now $140)
We can pretty much guarantee that at least one person in your life wants AirPods this holiday season, so you might as well stock up now. Normally $159 from Apple, you can score these wireless bluetooth headphones for just $140 on Amazon. Get ready to win Christmas.
2. Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Streaming Device (Was $50; Now $25)
Move over, Apple TV. The Amazon Fire Stick does pretty much the same thing, for a fraction of the price. This particular 4K version allows you to stream Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV and more in Ultra HD. And did we mention it has Alexa built in?
3. Clarisonic Mia Smart (Was $169; Now $118)
The day has finally arrived: You can now connect your facial cleansing device to your phone to set skincare goals and track your progress. When you get the Clarisonic Mia Smart, you can download its companion app and use the device's Smart mode for a guided cleansing routine.
4. Dyson V11 Torque Drive Cordless Vacuum Cleaner (Was $700; Now $499)
A vacuum isn't exactly an exciting Christmas gift. That is, unless it's a Dyson vacuum.

6. Fitbit Versa 2 Health & Fitness Smart Watch (Was $200; Now $130)
In all honesty, it'd be easier to tell you what this smart watch doesn't do, but here are some of its most exciting features: it tracks your heart rate, steps, distance walked, calories burned, active minutes and floors climbed throughout the day. It also gives you a daily Sleep Score based on your heart rate, time asleep and restlessness so you can better understand your sleep quality over time. Plus, you can get calls, texts and app notifications when your smartphone is nearby. What more could you want?
