1. For the home entertainer: Capri Blue Volcano Jar Candle
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Capri Blue candles (Photo: Anthropologie)
If you’re shopping for someone who loves home decor, you can never go wrong with a trendy candle as a gift. My favorite candle is Capri Blue’s Volcano scent. Not only do they smell amazing, but they come in chic jars. Anthropologie sells tons of styles for Capri Blue candles, but my go-to’s are the jar candles in blue and white. I have them all over my home.
Get the Capri Blue Volcano Jar Candle at Anthropologie for $22.40 (Save $9.60)
2. For the classic one: Kate Spade Pendant Necklace

If the person you’re shopping for is into something simple and timeless, this Kate Spade pendant necklace could be the perfect gift. It can be dressed up or down and is personalized with the initial of their first name displayed in the pendant. This necklace has hundreds of reviews from multiple retailers like Nordstrom, Amazon, and Bloomingdale’s—and right now, it’s on sale at Macy’s. However, the letters are selling out quick—both at retailers where the necklace isn’t on sale and at Macy’s. If you want to purchase one as a gift, we recommend buying ASAP.
3. For the one who loves their couch: A cozy throw blanket
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Throw Blankets (Photo: Anthropologie)
Doubling as home decor and personal comfort, throw blankets are truly a great gift for everyone—especially when they’re on sale. Right now, everything at Anthropologie is 30% off, meaning you can get the popular Sophie Faux Fur Throw Blanket, which has a 4.9 star rating from over 280 reviewers, for a discount. For a less expensive option, the Bliss Plush Throw at Nordstrom is a wonderful option. It has a 5-star rating from over 1,800 reviews—and it’s on sale, too.
4. For the bag lady: Madewell Zip Top Transport Leather Tote
I have owned Madewell’s zip-top leather tote for a few years now and recommend it as a gift for any woman who is always on-the-go. The classic tote is big enough to hold belongings for work and long weekends, and it’s stylish enough to use even when there’s not a lot in it. It’s especially great for traveling because of the zip top, and honestly, it fits way more than you would think. The bag comes in a few different colors, but I recommend the English Saddle color.
5. For the one who loves being cozy: Lou & Grey Signature Softblend Sweats
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Lou & Grey sweats (Photo: Loft)
Lou & Grey sweats are crazy popular and crazy comfy. I purchased a matching set back in March and have since ordered two more. While they are fantastic together, both the sweatshirt and sweatpants are great on their own, too. The fleece lining is comfortable and has remained that way after countless times in the wash. If you’re looking for a gift that screams comfort in 2020, seriously look no further than a Lou & Grey set. Perfect for all ages and simple for all styles, you can’t go wrong here.
6. For the one still using wired headphones: Apple AirPods Pro
Apple’s AirPods Pro are the best true wireless earbuds our experts tested this year. If you’re shopping for a lover of all things Apple, they would adore a pair of these—even if they already own the original AirPods. Who wouldn’t love an upgrade? For Zoom meetings, working out and even listening to podcasts while loading and unloading the dishwasher, AirPods make a great gift in 2020. Better grab them while they’re on sale!
Get the Apple AirPods Pro at Staples for $199 (Save $50)
7. For the artsy one: Jiggy for Anthropologie Puzzle and Glue Set

Not only have puzzles become a trendy activity, but so have the options of puzzles to buy. Jiggy’s puzzles are works of art—literally. After you complete them, they become pieces of wall art you can proudly display in your home. For anyone who has been occupying time spent at home with puzzles, a Jiggy puzzle would be a welcome gift. For Cyber Monday, you can get Anthropologie’s awesome and adorable Jiggy puzzles for 30% off.
8. For the one always in yoga pants: Zella Live In High Waist Leggings
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Zella Live-In Leggings (Photo: Nordstrom)
Nordstrom’s fitness brand, Zella, sells quality athleisure that is a bit more affordable than the likes of Lululemon and Athleta. The Live-In High Waist Leggings have over 7,000 rave reviews and have been loved by shoppers for years, myself included. I own a few pairs of Zella leggings, and while they are not as comfortable as Lululemon Aligns, they are great for the price—especially when they’re on sale. If you’re shopping for someone who wears yoga pants, these would be a welcomed addition to their collection.
9. For the girl who has everything: La Mer Créme de la Mer
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: La Mer Moisturizing Cream (Photo: Sephora)
La Mer is an expensive moisturizer with a cult following—and also a perfect gift if you want to ball out on someone. This year, you can get it on sale at Bloomingdale’s for Cyber Monday, which is quite rare. La Mer moisturizing cream has over 60,000 hearts at Sephora and over 1,900 reviews at Nordstrom with a 5-star rating. That is a lot of love. Why not spread it? (Pun not intended.)
10. For the one still wearing jeans: Madewell Jeans
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Madewell Jeans (Photo: Madewell)
I thought I hated jeans until I discovered Madewell jeans. They’re comfortable, they’re slimming, they never rip, and they’re a great price. Madewell also has sizes for all—petite, tall, curvy, etc. If you’re not sure what kind to get, I recommend a classic 10-inch (not too low-waisted, but not too high, either) in a solid color dark wash, like Hayes Wash. I also highly recommend the curvy jeans for anyone who has a curvy build. Read more about why I’m obsessed with Madewell jeans here. Right now, everything at Madewell is 40% off (or more), making this one of the best times (if not the best time) to buy jeans from the retailer.
11. For the one who loves getting their hair done: Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Revlon Hair Dryer (Photo: Reviewed / Betsey Goldwasser)
The Revlon hair dryer brush is arguably the most popular product of 2020. With over 116,000 rave reviews on Amazon, it has achieved cult status in the world of beauty products—and it’s approved by our own experts. Reviewed’s beauty writer, Jessica Kasparian, tested the hairdryer and found that it absolutely does live up to the hype. As for gifting it, I purchased one for my mom as a gift earlier this year, and she is obsessed. What would be even better? Buying it on sale!

Give the gift of our favorite smartwatch (on sale!) so they can have all of their notifications, music, and texts at their fingertips all the time.

Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Always Pan (Photo: Reviewed / Betsey Goldwasser)
You heard it from Reviewed’s cooking writer, Valerie Li Stack, first: The Always Pan might just be the hottest gift of the 2020 holiday season. The influencer-approved kitchen item is not only stylish, but it does the job of eight pieces of cookware. It’s a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. Perfect for those who live in small spaces and those who love cookware and kitchen tools, the Always Pan is an ideal gift this year. Get it while it’s on sale, as this deal won’t last.

Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Gravity Blanket (Photo: Gravity)
People love weighted blankets. They’re warm, they can help you relax, they look great on a couch or bed, the list goes on. According to our tests, the best weighted blanket is the ultra-popular Gravity Blanket. Gravity claims its blanket is like wearing a hug, and I can confirm this is true. What better gift than a giant hug for the holidays? Especially during a year where you probably cannot likely give one in person. The Gravity Blanket is hugely discounted right now, but it won’t last, so be sure to buy before the price increases.

Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Philips Airfryer (Photo: Philips)
Air fryers have been one of the trendiest kitchen gadgets for a while now, as they offer a way to make home-cooked fried food that’s healthier than deep-fried food. The Phillips Airfryer XXL is the best air fryer we tested and would make a great gift for anyone who likes to cook and eat semi-healthy, and of course, has extra kitchen counter space.
Get the Philips Airfryer XXL at Williams-Sonoma for $249.95 (Save $250)

When we tested dutch ovens at Reviewed, our favorite overall was not Le Creuset, as you might assume—it was Staub! We’re not the only ones who love this brand, either. The cookware is all over food blogs and Instagram. If you’re shopping for someone who loves to cook, a Staub would make an excellent gift. Right now, only certain colors are in stock—and some are on sale for a lower price than others.

If you’re shopping for someone who loves listening to music or podcasts, consider giving the gift of our favorite portable Bluetooth speaker, the JBL Flip 5 speaker. It’s the best portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve tested, and it’s even dunkable, so it can be used anywhere, rain or shine. A portable speaker is always great to have, whether to bring on hikes, use at home, or use outside (it’s especially great for outdoor, socially distant gatherings!).

If you want to splurge, look no further than a Dyson stick vacuum. Best for people who keep a clean home, or at least try to (whether they like doing it or not), our favorite vacuum—the Dyson V11 Torque—would make for the ultimate gift. I got a Dyson vacuum as a wedding gift, and owning one has been a game-changer. Both because it’s really good at cleaning, and because I feel extremely sophisticated owning a coveted Dyson product.
Get the Dyson V11 Torque Drive Cordless Vacuum at Dyson for $549.99 (Save $150)
23. For the lazy neat freak: Robot Vacuum
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Robot vacuum (Photo: Eufy)
We love robot vacuums at Reviewed and so do our readers. In fact, they’re among the products our readers continue to buy over and over and over and over. The Eufy RoboVac 11s is the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve ever tested and would make a great gift for anyone, whether they enjoy cleaning or not. While the Eufy is certainly not cheap, the price of the best robot vacuum we’ve ever tested makes it look far less pricey, even while both have sale tags. For $799 (a $300 discount), you can give the gift of our favorite robot vacuum—the iRobot Roomba i7+. No matter what your budget is, a robot vacuum is always a good choice.
24. For the trendy one: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
Best gifts on sale for Cyber Monday: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings (Photo: Spanx)
Spanx leggings are a classic closet staple. They are the perfect in-between of jeans and yoga pants, as the faux leather material makes them appear a bit fancier than your standard leggings. Like the thousands of reviewers who swear by Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, I also wear these all the time, and they have served me well during the course of the pandemic, as I have only put on jeans maybe four times. If you’re shopping for anyone who loves comfort and style, these are an excellent gift. Not to mention, they’re on sale for Cyber Monday.
25. For the beauty lover: GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand
