The holiday season is a time to think of everyone else in your life — a drill for dad, toys for the kids, new self-care essentials for your spouse. And while the displays of gratitude and love are admirable, it's also okay to think of yourself and your own needs every once in a while, too. Walmart's Deals for Days is serving up sweet discounts on the things you want all month long — for everyone on your shopping list, yes, and also for yourself. From the practical — like a Shark cordless vacuum — to the indulgent — like a faux fur weighted blanket — think of it as a reward for all your hard work this year.
We've partnered with Walmart to bring you the best deals every day through the end of November to help you make your list and check it twice...and finish up holiday shopping before you even think about your Thanksgiving spread. Check back daily to see what incredible deals we've turned up.
This Shark vacuum is light on weight yet heavy on power. Weighing in at just under eight pounds, this cordless model is easy to bring to different areas and levels of your house, and the swivel steering enhances maneuverability. The brush roll has two settings — one for carpets and one for hardwood floors — and is a pro at picking up pet hair. The extra-large dust cup lets you get the job done in one go and the machine recharges to full power in just four hours.
Busy households will appreciate how easy this is to use from the jump: "This vacuum is super lightweight, easy to maneuver, powerful, and best of all cordless. We have two kids and a dog, our floors are always a mess. It is so convenient to grab this rechargeable vacuum and to keep our floors clean. Right out of the box, it is ready to go, one screw for the handle, the parts snap together, easy to assemble," said one reviewer.
Effortlessly giftable, the Laneige Lip Sleeping mask has a cult following and we're here to tell you, the hype is real. This little pot holds the secret to soft, moisturized lips all winter long. Hyaluronic acid and minerals combine to form the coveted "moisture wrap," a blanket of hydration that covers lips to keep them smooth, soft, and flake-free. While it's called a sleeping mask since it's meant to work while you snooze, you may want to stock up and keep one in your purse, one at your desk as well as one on your bedside table — it's that good.
A customer gave their review a one word title: Amazing. "If you live in a cold area where you get dry lips most of time or if you just want your lips to look healthy and shiny, then look no further. I've tried so many lip balms but they all end up drying up the lips. This one actually feels like you're putting on butter but in a good way!" they said.
When you hear "weighted blanket," do you think of a bulky, drab, likely dark-gray-colored sheet that prioritizes function over aesthetics? Us too, until we found this version at Walmart. The white, fluffy faux fur elevates the experience — it has a soft microfiber on the other side, if you prefer. And while it looks luxe, it clocks in at under $20 — an absolute steal. The cover is also removable and machine washable.
The 12-pound blanket offers calming pressure to deflate stress and help you get, and stay, asleep all night long. "I'm so incredibly happy with these weighted blankets. They're so comfortable and weighted perfectly; it's like a hug. My sleep quality has improved by using them," said one satisfied customer.
Your kids will have hours of fun sending the marbles down the ramps and through the tunnels with three different build combinations, from beginner to advanced. And you will love the fact that this toy gets the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) stamp of approval from the Toy Association. A win-win for all. (Recommended for ages 4 and up.)
But don't take our word for it — trust a verified purchaser: "This is a great toy and activity for little ones to challenge their thinking and building skills. Helps to create some good hand-eye coordination as you have to follow instructions and assemble. Then you can watch the motion of the marbles flow through the path and it is a proud accomplishment moment."
Add this drill — and some new house projects in 2023 — to your list. It's small in size and in price, but this compact drill is still able to deliver 1,750 RPM motor and 475 in-lbs of torque. The kit includes the drill/driver, 20V battery, battery charger and 2-inch Phillips driver bit. You can complete 250 drilled holes on a single charge and the LED light helps increase visibility while you're at it.
This is the perfect gift for any power tool novice: "I'm not super handy but have completed more than a few small projects around my home with this drill...The guide is pretty comprehensive and the included battery and charger had me up and running in no time. There is an indicator light, which is helpful for knowing the charge status of the battery," explains one reviewer.

A man is in custody after a double stabbing at a Toronto subway station on Thursday afternoon that left one woman dead and another woman injured. The injured woman is listed in stable condition in hospital, police told reporters at a news conference outside the station in the city's west end. Police said officers responded to calls about a person assaulting and stabbing people on the eastbound subway platform shortly after 2 p.m. They said two women were found with stab wounds and were taken to
Ottawa's former mayor says he takes full responsibility for the city's widely criticized Confederation Line project. In a public statement issued Friday afternoon — following a "long-planned" post-mayoral vacation — Jim Watson said the system the city purchased did not meet expectations. "For that I apologize wholeheartedly to the residents of Ottawa and to our transit users in particular," Watson wrote. In his damning 664-page report, Justice William Hourigan slammed Watson and former city mana
PERTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) — People are asking questions about a storm protection proposal for New York and New Jersey that would be among the most massive and costly flood control projects ever done in America. At a public hearing Wednesday night on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' proposed $52 billion project, some wanted to know where all the water that would be thwarted by storm gates would go instead. Others wanted to know why the plan doesn't solve more of the problem. And one had a pointed q
Windsor-Essex's top doctor is concerned about the rising rates of influenza in the region — especially among young people — as respiratory illness dominates hospitals locally and across Ontario. Acting medical officer of health, Dr. Shanker Nesathurai, says this flu season has been "atypical," with cases presenting in May, June and July — a season when the virus is typically not active. "We've had cases of influenza every month since March of 2022. Normally, in a normal influenza season, there's
There is limited supply left on P.E.I. of the high-dose influenza vaccine for those in the 65 plus age bracket, according to the Island's chief public health officer. Dr. Heather Morrison said 22,300 high-dose influenza vaccines arrived on P.E.I. this fall and some pharmacies have now exhausted their supply. No new supply has been ordered. "If it's not available, a standard dose vaccine is still important to get and is a very good vaccine," Morrison said. "I would be very happy with the regular
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The election for a seat on a typically obscure regulatory commission in Louisiana, a state with a front row seat to the effects of climate change, has gained national attention as major utility companies and outside political action committees pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into the race. Saturday's runoff election for a seat on Louisiana's Public Service Commission pits Davante Lewis, a 30-year-old progressive policy advocate who wants to require utilities to reac
Families, Children and Social Development Minister Karina Gould said Thursday that new legislation aimed at enshrining the Trudeau government’s child-care program into federal law would prevent Conservatives from dismantling the system. She said it would require them to “publicly tell Canadians they do not believe in affordable child-care.”
Three teens have been charged after stabbings at an Oakville high school, Halton police say, while an arrest warrant has gone out for an adult also wanted in connection to the incident. Officers were initially called to Garth Webb Secondary School at about 4 p.m. Wednesday after a fight erupted between a "group of youths" in the building's foyer, police said in a news release Thursday. They found three 15-year-olds with injuries. Two had stab wounds to their bodies, while a third had a bloody no
The Quebec coroner's office has opened an investigation into the death of an 84-year-old woman at the Jewish General Hospital's emergency room in Montreal last month. The coroner confirms the woman was taken to the ER Nov. 26 where she died, as first reported by Global News. The coroner's office refused to comment or give details, as the investigation is ongoing, but said a detailed report shedding light on the causes and circumstances of the death will be made public once the investigation is c
HALIFAX — An emailed letter to staff of a Halifax-area hospital says that the pressure on the emergency room has risen to the point where there's no space to assess patients and one in 10 people aren't seen before they give up and leave. Two managers at the Dartmouth General Hospital say in the statement obtained by The Canadian Press that influenza and respiratory syncytial virus are combining with other factors to block the flow of patients through the ER. The email was sent Thursday to a long
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that he will not block Mississippi from carrying out with next week’s scheduled execution of an inmate who is suing the state over its use of three drugs for lethal injections. Thomas Edwin Loden Jr., 58, faces a Dec. 14 execution date, which was recently set by the Mississippi Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate handed down a ruling late Wednesday, saying Loden’s execution can happen even while the lawsuit is pending. Loden has been o
The family of an American detained in Russia for nearly four years said Thursday that the Biden administration “made the right decision” in agreeing to a prisoner exchange that freed WNBA star Brittney Griner but they are “devastated” that Paul Whelan remains behind. “As the family member of a Russian hostage, I can literally only imagine the joy she will have, being reunited with her loved ones, and in time for the holidays,” David Whelan, Paul's brother, said in a statement. “There is no great
OTTAWA — Families Minister Karina Gould introduced legislation Thursday in an attempt to secure a long-term role for Ottawa in daycare and future-proof the Liberal vision of a national child-care system. The proposed legislation, Bill C-35, sets out the federal government's commitment to long-term funding for provinces and Indigenous Peoples, as well as the principles that will guide those funds. It does not make any specific financial promises. The Liberal government has brought in a national c
LONDON (Reuters) -Britain said the human rights situation in China worsened last year and announced sanctions on Friday against 30 people worldwide, including officials from Russia, Iran and Myanmar who it deems responsible for human rights abuses or corruption. France had on Thursday announced plans for new European Union sanctions against Iran over human rights abuses in its security crackdown on popular unrest there as well as its supply of drones to Russia before Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.
TORONTO — In the first episode of the new season of "Little America" director Deepa Mehta guides a story that touches on the pressures some children of immigrant families feel to fit into traditional definitions of success. It's a topic she's excited to tackle in her return to the eight-part Apple TV Plus series for Season 2, she says, adding that as an Indian-Canadian immigrant herself she can relate to the show's exploration of those “universal questions” she’s had since becoming a Canadian ci
CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) — Two Moldovan oligarchs who are allegedly implicated in a one-billion-dollar bank fraud and other illicit schemes have been added to a new U.K. sanctions list, Britain's foreign secretary said Friday. The two men, Ilan Shor, and Vladimir Plahotniuc, fled Moldova in 2019 as they faced a series of corruption charges. They were among 30 people around the world sanctioned Friday by the U.K., Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said in a statement. Moldovan authorities allege tha
BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — Lawmakers in Slovakia began to debate a parliamentary no-confidence vote against the country's coalition government on Thursday in a move that could threaten Prime Minister Eduard Heger’s minority Cabinet. The opposition liberal Freedom and Solidarity party, which requested the vote, withdrew from the coalition government in September. Freedom and Solidarity head Richard Sulik accused the government of incompetence and losing its anti-corruption drive. The opposition
PARIS (AP) — France will make condoms free in pharmacies for anyone up to age 25 in the new year, President Emmanuel Macron announced Friday. The move comes as the government says sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise among young people, and as this year’s exceptional inflation is cutting especially deeply into the budgets of France’s poorest. Girls and women 25 and under already can get free birth control in France as part of government efforts to ensure that young people of all incomes
