Yahoo Life's editors are committed to independently selecting wonderful products at great prices for you. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.

Public service announcement: Amazon Prime Day lands on 12-13 July. Amazon's annual equivalent of Black Friday is back and we're braced to expect some of the biggest discounts yet.

This year, Amazon is encouraging us to support small businesses by adding more independent stores than ever before to its discounts.

And, as if we needed more encouragement, when you shop small, you'll be entered into a prize draw to win all sorts of prizes.

Many of the independent sellers that Amazon have picked have thousands of five-star reviews on their best-selling products and, to save you time, we've picked our must-buys.

From bamboo toilet paper to a weekly planner to stick on your fridge, this list is awash with all the things you never knew you needed, but now can't live without.

Although the official Amazon Prime event is on 12-13 July, deals are starting as early as 21 June with 55% off of selected Amazon devices.

If you'd rather stick to shopping small this Amazon Prime Day, you just need to look for the new small business badge on products on Amazon's storefront. The idea behind the new badge is to make it as easy as possible for us to find independent and artisan sellers to buy from.

Amazon's UK country manager John Boumphrey said: "Our Prime members across the UK will find the widest selection and best deals yet this Prime Day.

"From thousands of local British small businesses our members love, to the national brands and popular products they trust, Prime Day will help people save money, have fun, and also shop small.

"But that's not all – don't forget, Amazon donates to the charity of each customer's choice when they shop with AmazonSmile."
