We’re always game for a good sale, but there are a dizzying amount of deals to comb through when it comes to Amazon Prime Day, happening July 16 and 17 this year. To give you a running start on the discounts, we polled Domino editors about everything they’re keeping an eye on during the 48-hour event. A couple ways to prepare: If you own an Alexa, you can add products to your Wish List, Cart, or Save for Later to get a notification about a deal. You can also request to be added to an invite-only list for exclusive pricing on a product page (near the Add to Cart button). And last but not least, if you’d prefer to steer clear of Amazon altogether (we get it!), we’ll be gathering all of the Prime Day alternative sales worth shopping over the same dates—stay tuned.

Domino Editors’ Amazon Prime Day Wish List

Fun Memories Picture Frames

Fun Memories Picture Frame, 11'"x 14"

Amazon
$23

We have so much unframed art lurking in corners and closets, and I’m determined to get it all hung this summer. While I often prefer to have pieces professionally framed, it’s not always the most economical, so I’m in the market for several different sizes this July. I like that this brand makes its frames from solid wood in a variety of finishes and sizes, and that there’s tempered glass instead of plexiglass. I wish it had a white version! (I also like the frames on these from Haus & Hues.) —Samantha Weiss-Hills, managing editor

Tosmo 100% Linen Pillow Shams, Set of 2

Tosmo 100% Linen Pillow Shams, Set of 2

Amazon
$40

My husband and I don’t have an upholstered bed, so I use two European-size pillows as a backrest and to prop up the pillows we actually sleep with. They’re covered in a pattern I’m ready to swap out, and I’m searching for something more neutral. These 100% French linen shams will absolutely do the trick; I like the sage and taupe hues. Bonus is that they’re certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and under $50 for a set of two even at full price. —S.W.-H.

Mila Smart Home Air Purifier

Mila Smart Home Air Purifier

Amazon
$440 $350

As far as I’m concerned, this is the only air purifier that matters. After scrapping my last one because of bad reviews, I upgraded to the Mila, which comes with a filter that has a trustworthy name: Overreactor. I mean, come on! It protects from air pollution (hello, Brooklyn), cooking smells, VOCs, and germs. I swear it even made this year’s allergy season more tolerable. The only downside I can think of is that it’s on the pricier side (normally $349 with a filter), but for Prime Day, single units are 25 percent off, and filter bundles are discounted 30 percent, too. Mine lives in our bedroom, but I’m considering a second for our living room. —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor

Marimekko Unikko Terry Cotton Bath Towel

Marimekko Unikko Terry Cotton Bath Towel

Amazon
$62

Marimekko’s iconic Unniko pattern just turned 60, and I want it everywhere in my home, even in my bathroom, where these cheery towels would brighten up every morning. And if red’s not your thing, they come in more neutral colors, too: beige, charcoal, and navy. —J.V.

Ruggable Modern Outdoor Rug

Ruggable Modern Outdoor Rug, 8' x 10'

Amazon
$509

I’m in full summer mode, which means decking out my deck. I’d love to upgrade to a large, durable rug that can stay outside for this season and many more to come. This Ruggable option is made from chenille and has perfect reviews so far, and is even machine washable. I appreciate the lighter base color to avoid attracting the sun, and the modern stripes help it pair perfectly with my wood furniture set. —Andie Diemer, photography director 

Giantex Raised Garden Beds With Trellis & Roof

Giantex Raised Garden Beds With Trellis & Roof

Amazon
$290

Since successfully planting a bean arch in my backyard, I’ve been on the hunt for ways to grow more vertically. I’d use one of these raised beds to plant herbs in the front and morning glories and moonflowers in the back to climb up the trellis, and turn the other into a cut flower garden with hanging baskets. A planter that allows us more privacy, garden space, and fresh florals in one purchase? That’s my dream deal. —A.D. 

Haden Dorset 2 Slice Retro Toaster

Haden Dorset 2 Slice Retro Toaster

Amazon
$70

I am guilty of going off registry when it comes to getting wedding gifts for friends (as a design editor, I can’t help myself!). I think a chic toaster is an underrated present, and I’ll be getting one for a friend’s upcoming nuptials. Not only will they use it almost every day, but it’s pretty enough to leave out on the counter, meaning they won’t have to fuss around with hiding it in a drawer or appliance garage when they don’t want to look at it. —Lydia Geisel, home editor

Malin+Goetz Cannabis Candle

Malin+Goetz Cannabis Candle

Amazon
$64

I was at Mel’s Pizzeria in New York the other night, and the restaurant had Malin+Goetz’s popular scent burning in the bathrooms. I was reminded just how amazing this candle smells. (For clarification: It’s not jointlike at all but rather full of notes of black pepper and bergamot.) —L.G.

Loftie Smart Lamp

Loftie Lamp

Amazon
$250

For the last three weeks, I’ve been experiencing borderline insomnia. It goes like this: Up until 3 a.m. Awake again at 4:30 a.m. Drift off around 6 a.m. Barely functioning when my alarm goes off. I’d try just about anything to get some shut-eye, and Loftie’s smart lamp might be my solution. It was designed with physicians and sleep specialists to help establish regular snoozing and waking habits, something I struggle with even when I’m in my “normal” routine. There’s a wide range of light modes and customizable color settings for different needs, too. Night mode, for instance, strips blue light from your space, whereas red light mode helps increase natural melatonin production. But it’s the sunset wind-down feature—meant to lull you to sleep by easing your surroundings from day to night—that’s got me ready to add it to my cart. —Lindsey DeSimone, senior marketing manager

Bayue Bamboo Roller Blinds

Bayue Bamboo Roller Blinds, 31" x 72"

Amazon
$37

When Kate Berry tells you that your sunroom could use the warmth of bamboo blinds, you buy bamboo blinds. I took a total gamble on these—they have less than 500 reviews and what seemed like a too-good-to-be-true price—but they blew past my expectations. The blinds came on time, neatly packaged, and matching the color advertised online. I got the 31-by-72-inch option for our living room (our old windows are notoriously narrow) and hung them pretty easily with just a couple of screws. I’m hoping they’re on sale so I can outfit the rest of our house with them. —Lindsey Mather, digital director
