Looking for a vacuum that does heavy-duty clean up without a heavy-duty price tag? This powerful Hoover sucks up pet hair, gets deep into carpets and leaves no crumb behind—all for $59. The bagless design makes it a breeze to empty, and the swivel steering helps you maneuver around furniture and in tight spaces. It also comes with every tool you’ll need: a telescoping extension wand, a crevice tool and a handy duster. Hoovers have a well-earned reputation for performance and durability, and they back it up with a 5-year limited warranty. One pet owner reports: “This is the most powerful vacuum I think I have EVER owned. I've never seen a vacuum suck up so much from my floors… It has run circles around ANYTHING I have used before. Most vacuums that say they are for pets are usually just blowing smoke. Not Hoover. Bravo Hoover!!” Regularly $119, this half off deal is one to jump on, stat.
A soundbar is a perfect gift for the music or movie lover in your life. This sleek little speaker system expands sound upward and sideways to create a rich and immersive audio experience. “On the TV, it sounds similar to a movie theater…powerful enough to make you feel the drama, or excitement of what is going on in the movie,” writes an impressed reviewer. It creates the same magic with music from a phone, or sound effects from a video game, projecting sound that’s “amazingly crisp and clean.” The soundbar connects to a wireless subwoofer that, as one reviewer put it, is a “game changer.” Sensing a trend? People can't say enough about this soundbar. With a special price of just $99 (you'll see this bundle for well over $100 elsewhere), this is a slam-dunk gift for anyone with ears.
I’ve been using a Google Nest Mini for years: it tells me the morning’s weather and headlines, plays any song I can think of, sets timers for boiling pasta and reminds me to remove that bottle of wine I stashed in the freezer twenty minutes ago. The audio quality is impressive for such a small device and its clean, unobtrusive design blends in to any room. While music may be its most obvious skill, the Google Nest Mini connects to essentially any smart device, which means the sky is the limit when it comes to functionality. Reviewers report using it to add tasks to their calendar, groceries to their shopping list and to play meditations right before bedtime. If you want to get extra techy, it can also control your thermostat, TV and lights. Did we mention it’s on sale for $18? Take a piece of advice from the over 2,500 five-star reviewers and buy a few.
Even if you know nothing about Pokemon, you can rest assured that this is a serious deal. Surprise the Pokemon player in your life with this premium collection. The set comes with two foil etched versions of the rare Darkrai VSTAR card, one playable size and one jumbo. Beyond that, it has eight booster packs, which is enough to make the $20 price tag a steal. (A single booster pack goes for $4). All packed up in a holiday-ready box, this set was made to be gifted. You may not know why these cards are so exciting, but trust us, they certainly will.
Every year, there’s a sneaky gift that provides more entertainment than you imagined possible. This year, it might be this snacking Baby Yoda. Already the cutest Yoda in town, this action figure gets even cuter when you put a snack in his hand and watch him eat. Grogu (Baby Yoda’s official name) makes yum and yuck sounds to let you know if the snack was good. He also raises his arms and asks to be picked up, which is endless fun for young Star Wars fans—or even kids who just love cuteness. One happy parent writes, “It is so realistic and cute, great quality and love all the accessories that are included for him to interact with. My kids love to feed and play with him and his cute voice, all around a wonderful toy for all ages to enjoy!” Currently discounted from $79 to $15, we say every house should have a snacking Baby Yoda.

TORONTO — Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe was already in his office. Toronto goaltender Joseph Woll had entered the locker room to begin peeling off his equipment.

Gregor scored the shootout clincher Tuesday after Florida appeared to win the game with an Evan Rodrigues effort on the previous attempt — one that was eventually overturned by vi
The slow-motion car crash that has been Justin Trudeau’s time as prime minister of Canada appears to be nearing its merciful conclusion. It is difficult to see how he can go on much longer, lurching from one controversy to the next, vacuously mugging for the camera as he muddles through another awkward press conference with his deer-in-the-headlights gaze, repeating himself in French translation to take up more time, ensuring that he says as little as possible to a country that has stopped liste
