Christmas is (almost) upon us, and if you haven’t already sent gifts to those on your list, you might want to get to it. If you’re still looking for a little guidance, we’ve rounded up the best gifts for all kinds of recipients — including teenage boys, moms, and babies — though you may need to pay for expedited shipping (or you can always give them a virtual gift or gift card). If your recipient doesn’t mind receiving their present a few days after the holidays, there are sales aplenty on worthy gifts for them (or for you). Here, we’ve rounded up an assortment of actually good deals on everything from a cozy striped Madewell sweater to a remote-controlled humidifier.

Whether you like listening to podcasts while vacuuming or you’re interested in livening up your next stoop hang, a portable speaker always comes in handy. This sightly retro-looking gold and black Marshall number is now a third less at Best Buy (and is even water resistant, should that stoop hang become a bit damp).

For the art lover (or just the person who likes to be especially cozy on the couch): an Albers-inspired throw blanket that conveniently taps into this year’s checkerboard trend.

It’s no secret that we love a Hydro Flask (it’s the preferred water bottle of our deputy editor) — and even more so when it’s on sale. It, we suspect, would appeal to your mom who always forgets to drink water and your teenage cousin who wants something that looks good on Instagram.
