This year, Prime Day comes not once, but twice. Theoretically, these are all things that would make great holiday gifts… but whether they’re gifts for others or gifts for yourself, who’s to say? I’m sharing my personal favorite things in the Prime Day Early Access Sale, and a few things that are on my wishlist, too.
Furbo // Echo Show // Sony Headphones
FireStick // Airpod Pros // Echo Dot
iPad Mini // Apple Watch // Breville Espresso Machine
Miele Espresso Machine // The Frame TV
Prime Day Early Access has some great deals – lots of things that I use and love daily are on sale! It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Apple products, and this is a great chance to get them on sale, which is pretty rare. I wear my Apple Watch every single day – I actually picked it up over the summer during Prime Day – and it’s one of those things that I didn’t think I’d love as much as I do. The iPad Mini is another of my favorites – I use it as an eReader primarily, but love that I can also write e-mails, do shopping, and even make lists with it. The smaller size is actually perfect, in my opinion. And I love my Airpod Pros for daily noise cancelling headphones – I love how well they block out the background sounds of my house and yard.
If you’re looking for a step-up pair of noise cancelling headphones – something to use when traveling, or to get totally lost in music or an audiobook – I love my Sony over-the-ear headphones. I can wear them for hours comfortably, and they really do block out noise incredibly well. I can’t even head my dad’s 70s music on the car radio when I wear them on road trips!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Prime Day without deals on Amazon products. I have Echo devices all over my house – the Echo Show has a nice screen, which is especially great for using in the kitchen to look at recipes, and you can’t go wrong with a simple Echo Dot, either. And the FireStick is an easy-to-use, straightforward streaming stick.
Finally, a few things for the home (…and a few splurges). I love my Furbo, and Lily loves getting treats out of the Furbo! It’s also a great way to keep tabs on our cats at home when we’re traveling, and it is super giftable, too. The Frame TV is absolutely a splurge, but I love it so much! Being able to turn the TV into artwork is just so cool, and it looks so realistic, but doesn’t sacrifice picture or sound quality. And two more splurges that are on my personal wishlist… espresso machines! I don’t want to make an impulse purchase, because these are pricey, but after spending so much time at home (and being a coffee fanatic), these are inching higher and higher on my wishlist. The Breville is a great deal, and a good choice if you’re ok doing a little more of the work (steaming the milk, etc.). The Miele is definitely more expensive, but is super automated – you can even control in from your phone! It’s not on sale often, either – I’ve been keeping tabs on it. A great addition to any coffee lover’s kitchen.
