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.
