The holidays are just around the corner and Amazon is starting the shopping season off stronger than ever this year with the best Prime Day deals for the second time this year.
That’s right, welcome to Prime Day part two, folks.
Amazon is calling this second Prime Day their Prime Early Access Sale, a brand-new two-day event lasting from October 11 to October 12 where Prime users can purchase goods across the board at some of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. This post-Prime Day pre-Black Friday event is taking the world of shopping by storm right now with insane Prime Day deals on OLED TVs, kitchen appliances, video games, athleisure and much more. That means, yes, you can start your hunt for the best Christmas gift earlier than ever this year.
We’ve been eyeing deals like hawks during the Prime Early Access Sale so far and have found a number of items that will make the best Prime Day Christmas gifts of 2022. From the famous Ninja Indoor Grill to inexpensive Dewalt drills to, of course, Crocs, check out every Christmas gift we’re purchasing this year during Amazon’s second Prime Day.
Remember, you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these discounts, so don’t forget to start your free trial if you’re not already a member!
We recently named the 101 Best Christmas Gifts of 2022 as well as the Top Gifting Trends of the Year, and we’re something of an authority on gifts in general. A lot of our top holiday gift ideas are currently on sale during the Prime Early Access Sale (that was pretty much the whole point of the sale, so, no surprise), and so this is the perfect time to start crossing items off your holiday shopping list. All of the items below are sure to be popular gifts, and as of this writing, they’re all on sale.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
No, your eyes aren’t fooling you. The newest AirPods Pro model is currently on sale for Prime Day right now, making for one of the best Prime Day Christmas gifts of the year. Okay, so it’s not a huge discount, but it still beats the price at the Apple store. These earbuds are complete with improved noise-cancellation and overall sound, and they’re a surefire winner for Christmas.
National Geographic STEM Toys
In 2021, we named several National Geographic STEM toys to our list of the Top Toys of 2021, and the National Geographic Slime Kit made our list of the top Christmas gifts of 2022. Both of our selections — plus tons more National Geographic kits — are discounted as part of the Prime Early Access Sale.
Orastone Electric Hand Warmer
We love this electric hand warmer. It’s SPY-tested and approved and comes in a few different cute designs, making it a great Christmas gift for women. It’s also at the lowest price we’ve ever seen. This is your chance to pick up one of the year’s top stocking stuffers for under $25.
