We’ve found five items that your loved ones might not know they want, but will surprise and delight them during the annual exchange. The best part?

Looking for a vacuum that does heavy-duty clean up without a heavy-duty price tag? This powerful Hoover sucks up pet hair, gets deep into carpets and leaves no crumb behind—all for $59. The bagless design makes it a breeze to empty, and the swivel steering helps you maneuver around furniture and in tight spaces. It also comes with every tool you’ll need: a telescoping extension wand, a crevice tool and a handy duster. Hoovers have a well-earned reputation for performance and durability, and they back it up with a 5-year limited warranty.
One pet owner reports: “This is the most powerful vacuum I think I have EVER owned. I've never seen a vacuum suck up so much from my floors… It has run circles around ANYTHING I have used before. Most vacuums that say they are for pets are usually just blowing smoke. Not Hoover. Bravo Hoover!!” Regularly $119, this half off deal is one to jump on, stat.
A soundbar is a perfect gift for the music or movie lover in your life. This sleek little speaker system expands sound upward and sideways to create a rich and immersive audio experience. “On the TV, it sounds similar to a movie theater…powerful enough to make you feel the drama, or excitement of what is going on in the movie,” writes an impressed reviewer. It creates the same magic with music from a phone, or sound effects from a video game, projecting sound that’s “amazingly crisp and clean.” The soundbar connects to a wireless subwoofer that, as one reviewer put it, is a “game changer.” Sensing a trend? People can't say enough about this soundbar. With a special price of just $99 (you'll see this bundle for well over $100 elsewhere), this is a slam-dunk gift for anyone with ears.
I’ve been using a Google Nest Mini for years: it tells me the morning’s weather and headlines, plays any song I can think of, sets timers for boiling pasta and reminds me to remove that bottle of wine I stashed in the freezer twenty minutes ago. The audio quality is impressive for such a small device and its clean, unobtrusive design blends in to any room. While music may be its most obvious skill, the Google Nest Mini connects to essentially any smart device, which means the sky is the limit when it comes to functionality. Reviewers report using it to add tasks to their calendar, groceries to their shopping list and to play meditations right before bedtime. If you want to get extra techy, it can also control your thermostat, TV and lights. Did we mention it’s on sale for $18? Take a piece of advice from the over 2,500 five-star reviewers and buy a few.
Even if you know nothing about Pokemon, you can rest assured that this is a serious deal. Surprise the Pokemon player in your life with this premium collection. The set comes with two foil etched versions of the rare Darkrai VSTAR card, one playable size and one jumbo. Beyond that, it has eight booster packs, which is enough to make the $20 price tag a steal. (A single booster pack goes for $4). All packed up in a holiday-ready box, this set was made to be gifted. You may not know why these cards are so exciting, but trust us, they certainly will.
Every year, there’s a sneaky gift that provides more entertainment than you imagined possible. This year, it might be this snacking Baby Yoda. Already the cutest Yoda in town, this action figure gets even cuter when you put a snack in his hand and watch him eat. Grogu (Baby Yoda’s official name) makes yum and yuck sounds to let you know if the snack was good. He also raises his arms and asks to be picked up, which is endless fun for young Star Wars fans—or even kids who just love cuteness. One happy parent writes, “It is so realistic and cute, great quality and love all the accessories that are included for him to interact with. My kids love to feed and play with him and his cute voice, all around a wonderful toy for all ages to enjoy!” Currently discounted from $79 to $15, we say every house should have a snacking Baby Yoda.

A photo circulating on social media purports to show a screenshot of a tweet from Apple CEO Tim Cook telling Elon Musk to "pay 30%" after the Twitter owner complained about Apple's business practices. But the image is altered; live and archived versions of Cook's page show he published no such post, and the user who created the picture told AFP it was meant as a joke."Your feedback is appreciated, now pay 30%," says the supposed tweet from Cook to Musk, who claimed in a series of November 28, 20

Actor Yeo Yann Yann has played many roles in her 25-year career, and each character has helped her — little by little — become the all-rounded person she is today. The resolute character of Gao Shi Qin in the 2009 TV Series The Iron Lady left a vivid impression — it was the first time I saw Yeo Yann Yann on television. Her portrayal of a pragmatic hard-headed matriarch of a traditional Chinese family was so stellar that meeting her for the first time gave me butterflies. The fact is, Yann Yann h
Even if you’re not a fan of Vincent Van Gogh, you have no doubt seen his iconic painting “The Starry Night” somewhere at least once in your life. And if you’re a fan, then better put this on your calendar! From December 17 until March 16, 2023, the public will be able to catch a…
A video has been viewed hundreds of times in social media posts that falsely claim it shows a new airport in Arunachal Pradesh, a state in northeastern India. While a new airport was genuinely inaugurated in Arunachal Pradesh on November 19, 2022, the clip was filmed at Bengaluru airport in Karnataka, a state in southern India."Arunachal pradesh added this Airport to the state mostly made from BAMBU, Wow... Can't believe it... They are doing it here in India. Amazing Bharat," reads a tweet poste
People have long been fascinated by zombies. After all, it’s not a coincidence that content centred on the undead dominates our pop culture. Don’t get us wrong, we too are intrigued by them, but we prefer seeing our zombies in TV shows like The Walking Dead, movies like Army of the Dead, and video games like Resident Evil — you know, in fiction. A real life zombie apocalypse, however, isn’t something we’d wish for, or on our worst enemy. So it’s probably safe to say that the Internet wasn’t amus
With election fever ramping up in Nigeria, candidates are holding rallies in major cities and looking to celebrities for public backing. One video circulating on social media purportedly shows Hollywood stars declaring their support for the Labour Party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi. But this claim is false: AFP Fact Check found that the clip is a doctored mash-up of episodes from a US online series, in which celebrities answer the internet’s most searched questions about them. Obi does no
