Headphones, earbuds and audio gear
Over-the-ear headphones have long stopped being the choice of nostalgia-philes and ironic hipsters. Nay, many people find them better performing and more comfortable than earbuds. (Are your really meant to walk around with a knob of hard plastic lodged in your eardrum?) And when your choice of cans is Beats Studio3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones, you get the added benefit of showing the world your good taste. About that performance, though: These Studio 3s feature adaptive noise cancelation to keep the outside world at bay; real-time audio calibration; Bluetooth technology; compatibility with Apple and Android phones; and they'll keep the tunes (or podcasts or e-book-ing) going for up to 22 hours on a single charge. Another impressive number? They're over 40 percent off right now in Matte Black and Shadow Gray (above).

Let's keep the particularly-ridonculous-deal theme going, shall we? How 'bout a Facebook Portal with 10” Touch Screen Display for over $100 off?

Whether you do your tete-a-tetes, hangs and biz meetings on WhatsApp, Zoom or Messenger, you'll appreciate the clarity and adaptability. Our fave feature? Its Smart Camera, which automatically pans to keep everyone on the other end in frame; and Smart Sound, which enhances your voice while minimizing background noise.

The good news? On December 23, our days started getting longer again and we began our march back to springtime. The bad news? It's still pretty %@#%!ing cold out there and bound to get frostier.

It's got a drop tail (translation: extra tushy protection), water-resistant fabric and down-style baffling. Speaking of baffling: How is this ultra-toasty, stylish, goes-with-anything, imported garment just $120?
