11 Things On Sale You’ll Actually Want To Buy: From Tamagotchi to Coach

Just to state the obvious: Christmas is on Friday, so if you haven’t already secured all your gifts, perhaps you should jump on it. We know the hard-to-shop for dad, too-cool-for-you teenage sister, or very picky mom are a pain to buy for, but they still deserve something nice. So might we suggest some on-sale items? There’s a bunch of stuff that will still arrive in time — with the caveat that some might require paying for expedited shipping — but what you save on the item itself allows you to splurge a little on shipping. And in case you’ve already bought all your gifts, these would still make a nice gift for yourself as a job-well-done present.

A very fun stocking stuffer for the nostalgic millennial that will arrive before Christmas if you order today.

Speaking of nostalgic games, a Gen X-er who misses the arcade will be sure to appreciate this one

This refurbished Roomba won’t ship until after Christmas, but order it now and start the new year with a cleaner apartment without doing any of the work.

Lots of bags and wallets are half-off at Coach, including this charming wallet for the teen girl in your life. (We suggest using their express shipping option in order to get it on time for Christmas.)

For the younger sister who swears that fanny packs are cool now. (It’s also available in black, for something a touch more subtle.)
