The 12 days of Christmas might not start until December 25, but Amazon is busy running its own 12 days of deals. Today is day 5, and the theme is home. The products include everything you need for a happy holidays, like decor and puzzles, to new sheets and pillows for guest rooms (or just you room.)
You can see all the deals here, and read on to see our top picks. The deals run until midnight P.T.
If you need lights, ornaments, or even a whole (fake) tree, one of Amazon's deals is on holiday decor. The more decor-focused stuff isn't exactly design-forward, but some of the 300-count Christmas lights are a great deal, and considering how expensive convincing-look fake trees can run, we think this 7.5 ft frazier fur is worth snagging for $182.
eufy BoostIQ RoboVac, $196 (usually $280)
It's not a Roomba, but its one of the few robot vacs you can find for under $200 that also comes with smart home and app compatibility. (While iRobot frequently runs sales, their earlier models that can go for under $200 often wont offer these functionalities.) It has an estimated 100-min run time and the ability to re-dock and charge, as well as navigate from room to room.
If your family could use with a little less talking while they deal with a little more togetherness, why not grab a new puzzle to get everyone (silently) gathered in one place. The puzzles offered range from 1,000-piece puzzles to kid-friendly dinosaurs from Melissa & Doug, meaning everyone can find a way to pass the time. Most are under $10, and all are under $15.
If you're not ready to invest in a new mattress, a Tempur-Pedic mattress topper (now starting at $160 for a twin) can be a great way to give an old mattress new life. This is an especially great thing to do this time of year for the guest bedroom if you're having family visit.
Blueair Slim Air Purifier, $139 (usually $250)
Great for medium-sized rooms, it comes with three settings and is great to slip behind couch arms or beside a nightstand. The highest setting is the most noisy (though it could work as a white noise machine), and the lowest setting is meant to be almost undetectable. With many stand-up HEPA filters costing several hundred dollars, this is a good deal on one with a minimalist look that won't take up too much space.
Mayfair Linen Cotton Sheets, $44 for a full (usually $67)
With over 2,000 five-star reviews, and over 15 colors to choose from, this is another way to prep your home for guests. Made from 100% cotton, they have a sateen weave for a silky feel. Each set comes with two pillow cases, a fitted, and a top sheet. Standard and king matching pillow case sets can also be purchased for $20 if you have more than 2 pillows on a bed.
