A quality electric toothbrush is always a smart purchase. It's an even smarter purchase when Oprah swears by it, and the media queen counts herself as a fan of this highly rated Philips One by Sonicare Toothbrush. "Sometimes something practical is the perfect present," she says. "I've long been a Sonicare user, and I'm excited about this travel-friendly version, complete with a sleek case." It happens to be on sale at Amazon as part of their massive Cyber Monday sale, so get your "Add to Cart" finger ready! It's time to save big on this oral hygiene essential, perfect for toting along wherever your holiday travels take you.
When Oprah says she approves of something, we listen. And while we might not always have the budget to afford her more luxurious faves, paying $17 for a brand-name toothbrush we'll use multiple times a day seems pretty doable.
Why do I need this?
Using an electric toothbrush is typically far more effective than manual brushing, and this model uses micro-vibrations and gentle nylon tapered bristles to polish teeth and remove plaque. A two-minute timer with 30-second notifications allows you to brush those pearly whites for the appropriate amount of time, while the three-month battery life means you won't have to replace the battery very often at all (it comes with one so you can start using it out of the box!).
It's also super portable for bringing on trips and comes with a compact travel case, ideal for stowing safely away as you move from one family gathering to the next this holiday season. And can we talk about those gorgeous color options? There's light blue, navy, coral and yellow for anyone who likes a bright pop, but neutrals like black and white are available in rechargeable models as well.
One five-star reviewer said it's simply the best: "This Sonic Electric Toothbrush far exceeded my expectations," they wrote. "The size is great because it fits my toothbrush holder. This is so terrific that I purchased two. ... Do not hesitate to buy this one."
Reviewers also rave over how great this is for travel. "I love how compact this toothbrush is. I have a regular Sonicare that I use at home. I have taken that one on trips, but as much as I loved it ... it took up too much space. This one is compact, light and fits perfectly into my overnight bag," one shared. "Buy it — you will not regret it :)"
"My dental hygienist has been hounding me to get an electric toothbrush, so I got this one," explained a final fan. "Two weeks after getting it, I left for Iceland. I loved how easy it was to pack this up and take it with me and to be able to travel without disrupting my normal teeth-cleaning routine. I also like that it takes a standard AAA battery rather than some obscure battery size. ... I've had it for almost three months now ... and I have yet to change the battery. I do wish the timer was adjustable, as I feel like I need another 30 seconds to finish cleaning my mouth, so sometimes let it go for another partial round."

With over 44,000 rave reviews from verified shoppers, this formula has a massive fan base — many of whom rave about how hydrated and bright their skin feels after use.
Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left. The top number shows how much juice is in the case, while the two smaller indicators show readings for each bud. Pretty smart! But that's not their only innovative feature: These buds have everything you'd expect in a quality pair. On-ear controls let you answer calls, skip songs and activate Siri. They also have multiple sound modes to pick from. Nearly 8,000 five-star fans can't be wrong, right?
The a.m. "grind" doesn't have to be taken so literally, as in, having to grind your own coffee beans. Mornings are hectic enough as it is! With this compact Keurig, you'll be able to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of joe, no filters or coffee grinders required. Simply fill the reservoir with water, pop in the K-Cup of your choice, select the size of your cup and — presto — java will appear in your mug in under a minute. True to its name, this slim model also won't take up much counter space. We rarely see this model dip below $50, and if you're someone who enjoys a hot bev (or two) on a daily basis, it'll pay for itself with all the time it'll save you. We recommend snagging it while it's 50% off!

Don't be surprised if you start using this more than your actual oven!
This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. Plus, it comes with a self-cleaning hose tool and a bottle of Bissell's Spot & Stain with Febreeze. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.

The durable metal rod extends as far as 32 inches for easy reaching and folds down for space-saving storage when not in use. Its rubber claws ensure a secure hold, and its grips are also equipped with magnets for lifting metallic items small and large.
With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much space on your counter. Its patent-pending TurboCrisp technology helps ensure quick, even cooking with that crunch factor we all crave (though you'll be able to cook with as much as 75% less fat than deep-frying). The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.
If you get stressed when you're out and about and notice your phone's battery is at 13%, this portable charger duo is a must. They're slim and compact enough to keep stashed in your bag at all times, and each one has two USB ports for charging multiple devices at a time.

"When my kids were little (and we were very poor), we went on trips to the pet store to look at the animals. It was like a mini trip to the zoo. We would always buy a treat for the dog while we were there. An hour of entertainment for a few bucks."
NEW YORK (AP) — Something is different on the comics pages this week. In the panels of “Mutts,” there's the long-delayed sight of freedom. Patrick McDonnell, the cartoonist who draws the popular strip, is freeing his character Guard Dog, liberating an animal who has become for decades a symbol of the cruelty of dog chaining. “I think it just hit me that I can’t do it forever and that it has to happen,” McDonnell told The Associated Press ahead of the publication of Thursday's panel showing Earl'
New data suggests Canadian consumers are falling into the 'lipstick index,' spending more on cosmetics when financial times are tough. Several Canadian beauty retailers say they're stocking up on products, expecting to build on last year's holiday boom.
