Right now the Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is on sale for $25, so why wouldn’t you opt for the bundle that also includes a free smart bulb? It’s a colored light that can be automated using the Echo Dot, which is pretty sweet. Plus the Dot does much more, including helping you figure out the weather, do conversions and math. It can even play music.


Everyone loves Bluetooth speakers, especially ones that are durable, portable and waterproof. Whether you plan to take more vacations next year or spend more time outside by the pool, you don’t need to do it in silence. This speaker will be loud enough to entertain you and some friends and it offers up to 10 hours of playback per charge. It comes in four colors, but the black variant is currently the cheapest.

With the Roku Premiere you get 4K, HDR along with quick and easy access to Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus and tons of other streaming services so you can watch all of your favorite shows and movies without needing to upgrade to a smart TV.


If you’ve upgraded to a new 4K TV recently, you need a streaming stick that can match its resolution. The Fire TV Stick 4K comes with an Alexa Voice remote for easier navigation, and it’s much quicker overall than previous models. If you have an older Fire TV Stick to trade in, you can save an extra 20% as well.


This two-pack of color bulbs is great for your bedroom, porch, garage or any other place you may want some smart lights that aren’t super expensive. At $8 each, these can be used as colored bulbs or white, and you can even automate them from the free Kasa Home app to automatically turn on or off at designated times.

It’s hard to believe that such a small charger could be so powerful, but you’d be amazed at just how quickly this can charge up your phone or tablet. You can pick from one of four fun colors here, but only the black and white model has an additional discount to make it even more affordable.


If you prefer Google Assistant over Alexa, this is the bundle for you. It comes with the small, yet powerful Nest Mini and a free smart plug (which can be controlled by the smart speaker). Unfortunately, this bundle is only available in the lighter grey color, or you can get the dark grey Nest Mini for the same price with no smart plug.


Instead of buying a specific set, why not buy this kit? It comes with 442 pieces that can be used to build whatever you can come up with. Let your imagination soar and your creativity shine.

La Crosse

Whether you’re headed back to the office next year or you want to have your kids be a little more independent and wake up on their own, having a standalone alarm clock is a great way to do it. This one has a built-in USB port for charging your phone and the customizable LED panel gives it a more personalized look.


An electric kettle means that you can have nearly instant boiling water anywhere that there is an electrical outlet. Whether you want hot tea, instant coffee or any other warm drink, you won’t need to use stove space to get the water hot.

Mr. Coffee

Creating a cup of iced coffee at home doesn’t have to take a long time, nor does it have to be expensive. Stop getting Starbucks every morning and pick up an iced coffee maker for your house to save you time and money next year.
