We know you’re probably busy basting, buttering and baking today. But we’re busting in for just a minute to share deals so great you’ll want to take a bit of a break. We've teamed up with Walmart for our 30 Days of Savings event to share the very best bets—at the very best prices—for everyone on your gift list. We’re here to help you get all your holiday errands crossed off before December even begins.

Want to score free shipping and early sale access? This year, for the first time, Walmart+ paying members will receive exclusive four-hour early access to all online Black Friday events throughout November! Plus, you'll get free shipping (on everything — there's no order minimum!) and unlimited free delivery on groceries. That’ll make your life easier through the holidays and beyond. Sign up for your free 15-day trial here (note that you need a paid membership to get early access to the deals), and a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)

1. Samsung has the perfect first smartphone for — wait for it — $40!

A Samsung Galaxy is the smartphone every influencer wants to snag. This sleek A02s model is the ideal starter version. It has a triple lens rear camera setup and 32GB built-in memory to store all their snaps (they can add more when they need to) — plus an all-day 5,000 mAh battery with a Fast Charging feature to keep them powered up. The 6.5-inch HD screen is made of scratch-resistant Panda Glass, so they’ll always have a crisp view whether they’re taking pictures, streaming a TV show or video chatting. (And you won't have to get cracks fixed anytime soon.)

Says one shopper: “Pictures are sharp. Speed is excellent. Memory is more than adequate. Hotspot blazes along.” Adds another: “My son really likes his phone. Loves the camera and screen size, not too big for putting in his pocket.” The best part? It’s prepaid — that means no bill.

2. $100 off Eureka’s magic-wand vacuum

Wood floors, carpet, tile, stairs, blinds, car seats: this ultra-light Eureka cordless stick vacuum with a detachable hand vac can handle them all. It weighs just 6.5 pounds, so it won’t weigh your lucky recipient down. And it won’t frustrate them either because it can handle a 30-minute cleaning sesh on a single charge. True clean queens will appreciate the Max Power button, which whisks away big messes in a flash, and the motorized pet tool for grabbing pet hair from corners and crevices. The LED headlights are an upscale touch usually only found on fancier models.

One shopper noted that it’s “easy to maneuver via its swivel steering, such as when vacuuming between dining room chairs, underneath the dining table, etc.” In other words, it won’t miss a spot. Another called it “Empowering!” and added: “It has changed the way I clean!” — for the better. It’s a gift that’ll keep on giving.

3. Maximum muscle relaxation for only $35

Pro athletes and trainers swear by percussive massage therapy guns for relieving sore shoulders, aching necks and bad backs. The handheld devices vibrate powerfully to loosen up those knots and leave you feeling better. But they can cost $400 or more. That’s why we did a double take when we saw this FitRx muscle massage gun for just $35 — how could it possibly compare?

Well, we’re here to tell you that it does and then some. The pro-style tool has five unique attachments to target aching legs, arms, backs and necks. (Hot tip: The attachments are freezer safe, so chill them for even deeper relief.) It also has six speed settings and is portable, so take it to the gym or on a business trip or vacation. Says one satisfied shopper: “I took it to work and ended up using it on my coworkers who mostly work 12-hour shifts...and half the staff just ordered it!” Enough said. Scoop it up for the hardest worker on your list.

4. The “best beard trimmer on the market” for under $20

The bearded babes in your life always look sharp. Make their maintenance routine a little easier to pull off with this amazingly priced Wahl trimmer, which really lets them fine-tune their length. It comes with eight color-coded guard attachments to make it foolproof. It also addresses all the gripes these little shavers typically get: The self-sharpening blades won’t snag, it can work cordless and charged up or plugged into the wall (no need to wait for it to charge) and it delivers a clean cut in a single pass.

“I charged this trimmer the day I got it and it’s been two weeks of daily use with no dead battery!” raves one smooth shopper. We bet you know somebody who's got groom for improvement.

5. A music streaming shower head for half off

Know someone who loves belting out their favorite tunes in the shower? They’ll go wild for this Atomi Bluetooth showerhead, which lets them stream their favorite songs while they suds up. Just request a tune, and it’ll automatically play. (That’s a real upgrade from reaching out of the shower and drying off an arm to adjust your iPhone or yelling for Alexa, eh?) It holds a charge for six hours, so intermissions will be few and far between; when it does need to charge, it’s magnetic, so they can just snap it off and plug it in.

Plus, the water pressure is fantastic. “I was doubtful on how the water pressure would be for this shower head,” says one shopper. “It’s amazing! Good sound quality and the water pressure is so good that we decided to buy more to replace the other shower heads in our home.” Now that’s a mic drop.

Create an undersea world that’s neon-bright. This durable three-gallon desktop tank has a special LED light system that can cast either a moonlight or sunlight shimmer on their scaly pets and across their desk or bookshelf. Parents will be happy to hear that the kit includes a three-stage filtration system so it won’t be a pain to clean.

One satisfied shopper says, “We have gone through a few desktop-sized aquariums, and this one is by far our favorite. It’s glass, so it has a premium look...And the filtration is great.” Just add a few GloFish fluorescent accessories (like starfish and anemone figurines or grasses) and a betta fish buddy. They’ll love being part of this world.

Treat their tootsies to these wintry Dearfoams delights for just $15 (that's over 50 percent off!). These cozy chenille slippers are affordable and absolutely divine. Underneath all that fluff there’s a cushioned memory foam insole for all-day support and a scuff sole so they can step outside to grab the paper if they need to. 

Best of all? The slippers are machine washable, so the pink fabric will always look this pretty. If pink isn't her shade, they also come in a lovely shade of blue.
