Some people may scoff at the idea of splurging on a vacuum as a holiday gift. Those people have never fought tumbleweeds of wiry pet hair lodged under their sofas, and they've clearly never wielded a Dyson vac. It makes for a great gift for yourself—to prepare for the holiday season ahead—or as a surprise to lighten someone else's household chores. And right now, it's the most steeply discounted we've seen it all year (a whopping $220 off), as part the of the 2022 Dyson Black Friday sale.

What sets the Dyson V8 Absolute apart from the pack is how easy it is to assemble—no matter which attachment you're using or if you convert it to a handheld vac—and how effortless it is to maneuver around the house (whether you're scouring under cabinets or trying to reach cobwebs near the ceiling), thanks to its cordless, bagless, slim stick design and low-profile cleaner head. On top of that, it lasts up to 40 minutes per charge with at least seven minutes of max power, which uses higher suction for spots that need extra work. Although buyers say you may not even use it since the general suction power is so good.

"How I ever lived without this vacuum is beyond me," one reviewer from Wisconsin shared. "I love the ease [with] which I can clean everything. Yes it’s pricey but it’s worth every penny." (Two other reviewers both commented on how it's the ideal vac for keeping up with all the hair their German Shepherds shed.)

More impressively, Dyson says the V8 Absolute traps 99.99 percent of microscopic particles inside the machine vs. expelling them out (a bonus for folks with allergies). When you buy it during Black Friday, you'll get a whole arsenal of cleaning tools: the vacuum itself, of course, as well as two cleaner heads (one fluffy, for hardwood floors; one with detangling bristles, for carpets), a hair screw tool for removing pet hair, a crevice tool, a mattress/fabric tool, stubborn dirt brush, combo tool (so you can easily switch between a wide-nozzle vac and a brush vac), the docking base and a charger. All the makings of a dust- and pet-hair-free home.
