Let them hand off their cleaning duties to this "small but mighty" Shark robot, as one happy shopper described it. Not only does it accurately map and vacuum the entire house, but it also hits hard floors with 100-scrub-per-minute mopping power simultaneously. It's easy to program this machine to run while you're out, so you always come home to carpets and rugs with those satisfying vacuum lines and hardwoods or tile that shine like new. If your giftee isn't a tech aficionado, they also have the option to operate it by pushing the button on top—easy! We love that this particular model has a deep cleaning mode that works extra hard on high-traffic zones, like near pet bowls or litter boxes. Another reason pet owners will love it: It has a self-cleaning brush head, so they never have to open it up and de-tuft it.
"I didn't think that this small vacuum was capable of so much!" says one reviewer. "I was a little intimidated when I opened it up, but after getting the quick start guide out, everything was very understandable and didn't take long at all to set up. You can download the app to maximize all options, or you can just use the clean button on the vacuum. Being able to vacuum and mop via a robot has saved me a lot of time. Five kids makes for a dirty floor, and this little guy handles it! I run mine at night while everyone is asleep. Very surprised at how much it had picked up, in a short amount of time, the first time I ran it."
Nothing reheats french fries or pizza—or, um, crisps up healthy sides like Brussels sprouts—the way an air fryer can. If you know someone who's looking to eat better or just more deliciously in the new year, they'll love this 14-quart machine. It does so much more than just air fry, since it's an easy-to-use toaster oven, rotisserie and dehydrator too. This model is a true gift for two more reasons: It takes up barely a square foot of space and all of its cooking trays and accessories can go in the dishwasher.
It's a rare item with five-star reviews only. Take this one: "I love the size of this cooker," says one happy shopper. "It’s amazing to be able to bake, air fry, roast, and rotisserie all in one. I promise you’ll find way more uses for this than you’ll ever imagine. It has a beautiful stainless finish that goes with any kitchen or home decor."
Is there someone in your family who always sends you home with Thanksgiving leftovers in their best storage containers? Replenish the cook's supply with these durable, classic Anchor Hocking vessels. We love the visibility you get from the high-quality glass and the way they're perfectly sized to store everything from prepped vegetables to full-on meals. This 30-piece set—right now just $20—will set them up for the new year and beyond. Says one loyal fan, "I have used Anchor Hocking for years and have always loved it. This set in particular is a good deal. The colors of the tops are not too bright and seem very sturdy. Very pleased indeed."
All kids need their castle. This one, designed for ages three and up, lets them live it up right in their own backyard. Kids will love pulling it out for every birthday, picnic and family get-together in the future; adults will appreciate that this energy burner comes with an easy-to-use blower that inflates it in two minutes flat plus eight safety stakes to hold it securely in the ground. Also included are a repair kit and patches, to avert a crisis. Mesh sides give parents a clear view to manage the mayhem inside. It really is easy to use: Says one happy shopper, "Once you open the package all you have to do is attach the tube to the blower and plug it in. I was amazed at how quick it went. Our little man climbed in there and started bouncing right away. He had so much fun. We had to carry him out when it was time to go in to eat...Once done for the day it is easy to pack away. Turn the blower off and it deflates on its own. I would also like to mention this bounce house is not made from thin material, so you don't have to worry about it popping easily." Start to finish, it's a fun time for everyone—and it just might be the best $99 you'll ever spend.
No other headphones can beat Beats. The sound quality is legendary—and they just look cool. Whether your loved one listens at the gym, on the way to school or in their bedroom, they'll love the upgrade to this sweet sounding pair. A single charge lasts for up to 40 hours, and when they don't have time for a full power-up, just five minutes of charging will keep them going for three more hours. Not to mention, they come fully charged for listening right out of the package.
"This is my second time owning a product by Beats and their quality is just unreal!!" raves one happy shopper. "I've never heard sound so clear/crisp. You can hear the different levels/instruments of a song when listening to music. It doesn't blend into each other like it does when using other headphones I've had. Has the right amount of bass. They're really comfortable and sleek/gorgeous looking. I'm mad I had to pay what I did for them lol but I knew it would be worth every cent. Beats don't disappoint." The only thing left to pick is which color: black, red or rose gold.
