Sony WH1000MX5 headphones

Of all the pairs we’ve tested, these are the best wireless headphones. (We’ve tested a lot!) The WH-1000XM5 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) have 30 hours of battery life and excellent sound quality, plus the noise canceling is some of the best in the business. This price matches the lowest we’ve tracked.

The JBL Authentics 200 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is a spectacular smart speaker. It works with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa—most speakers only have one or the other. It’s compact and it looks polished, and the sound quality is glorious.

This charger was discontinued by Apple, but it’s a solid option if you’re still using Lightning cables to charge your devices. It can top off your iPhone and your Apple Watch simultaneously, and it folds into a neat little package once the job is done. Woot is owned by Amazon; if you’re a Prime member, you can pay with Amazon during checkout to get free shipping.

2022 MacBook Air

This is the larger version of the Best MacBook you can buy. The 2022 Apple MacBook Air (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is great, but it’s expensive. This price is one of the best we have seen for it. There are rumors of a new MacBook Air coming in March, but good Apple products tend to stay relevant even after new versions are released.

This price matches what we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year. If you watch a lot of Amazon Prime Video, the Fire TV Stick is the streaming device you need. You can stream from virtually any of the top services, but the operating system is heavily skewed toward the company’s content.

This 630-piece building set is a great gift for any Marvel fan. Build an evil-looking Baby Groot, complete with sharp teeth and tentacles. The figure stands nearly a foot tall, so it’ll make a good display once the construction is complete.

Nintendo Switch OLED

The Nintendo Switch OLED (8/10, WIRED Recommends) usually costs $350, so the real steal here is the $50 Dell gift card. It’ll be delivered to your email address and can be used on anything your heart desires … so long as it’s available from Dell’s store. That includes accessories and games, which we have guides for here and here. The gift card expires 90 days after you receive it—use it or lose it!

Forget the chalky praline-filled chocolates or roulette-style assortments. This is a solid deal on something sweet. You can use Subscribe & Save for an even lower price—just be sure to cancel your subscription afterward if you aren’t interested in subsequent deliveries.
