It was the deep discounts and surprise steals that caught Domino readers’ attention the most throughout November—aka Cyber Month. Whether that was a mini tabletop firepit or a rip-proof neoprene tech organizer, the 13 best-selling products over the past 30 days all have one thing in common: They also make great gifts. If you didn’t happen to scoop up the deals last month, now may be your last chance to score several at an affordable price point—nearly half are still on sale, up to 33% off.
Domino readers loved Graza’s squeezable EVOO as much in November as they did in October—and we’re not surprised. Not only does it make for a quintessential host gift, it’s a kitchen staple that’ll be put to good use, no matter if you’re gifting it to an amateur chef or the “defrosts veg from the freezer aisle” cook in your life. We’ve been obsessed since the tasteful duo first appeared on the scene earlier this year, quickly thereafter becoming the It olive oil brand (we’ve spotted it in the kitchens of all sorts of influencers). Part of that is thanks to the playful retro packaging and nozzle design that minimizes messes (no slick hands or counters to deal with). It’s now in permanent rotation at associate commerce editor Morgan Bulman’s home; she can attest to the taste being just as delicious as a few of the more expensive tins in her cupboard.
As seen in: A Running List of the Best Gifts on Sale for Black Friday (40 and Counting); The Best Tabletop Firepits Include a Mini Wood-Burning Solo Stove for Under $100; 21 Great Gifts for Men, and Not a Leather Wallet Among Them
Of all Solo Stove’s smokeless offerings, the miniature Mesa was sought by Domino readers the most last month. And although it’s normally already affordably priced, it’s an even more budget-friendly $90 this holiday season. We imagine shoppers prefer the pint-size version for the same reasons we do—it takes both pellets and wood for fuel; comes in five fun colors aside from the classic stainless steel; is lightweight and small enough to bring along on adventures (it even comes with its own carrying case); and takes up next to no room, making it a great addition to a balcony or terrace. Though, a word to the wise if you do have the room: For a limited time, if you purchase a bigger bundle, you can use the code FREEMESA to get the tabletop pit for $0 (no, not a mistake).
According to Bulman, finding a White Elephant gift is all about balancing the ridiculous with the useful. And of all her recommendations, this particular book emerged as the clear favorite among Domino readers. It’s fun yet funny and as interesting as it is hilarious, humorously presenting a slew of bird facts and lovely hand-drawn illustrations. We think pretty much anyone would enjoy flipping through it, but if you happen to have an aviary-adoring friend or family member, then this one really ups the gifting ante.
We were eager to score some of Matilda Goad’s homewares at a fraction of the usual cost during one of Anthropologie’s many sales throughout Cyber Month. It looks like Domino readers cashed in, too; this sweet set of cocktail napkins sporting the London-based designer’s signature scallops were scooped up by the dozens throughout November. Made with organic cotton and featuring four different cottagecore-esque patterns, they’re a stocking stuffer in the making.
In November, Domino readers were all in on an Oprah Winfrey–approved product that banishes wrinkles and is small enough to fit in your carry-on. “At first glance, the thing looks like a hair straightener,” our style editor, Julia Stevens, writes, who also gave the Nori her official stamp of approval. “But like most traditional irons, the Nori has steamer capabilities. You just press the corresponding button and fill up the small opening with either water or the company’s enticing Fabric Facial solution (available for purchase separately for $15), which deodorizes and sanitizes clothing.” Instead of having to deal with a bulky ironing board, this gadget smooths out collars, cuffs, hems, and pleats in a flash.
Once again, Pura’s sleek smart diffuser—an elevated plug-in wall freshener, if you will—is a monthly best-seller. Aside from being an ideal alternative to candles (ever let one burn too long?), it won readers over with customizable controls. From the Wi-Fi-connected app on your phone, you can manage quite a lot: determine how strong one of its 100-plus fragrances emits; set how long and when you want it to run; and control the color and brightness of the hidden LED light. It was on sale twice in November, which is also when the brand released a limited-edition all-black version that will be available only as long as supplies last. Most readers stocked up on new scents for winter, like Earl Grey Bitters, when they were BOGO and 20% off.
These fish-shaped tawashi dishcloths have topped our list of best-sellers two months in a row, and we get why. They are made from 100 percent cotton; can be used to scrub plates, pots, and pans clean; are soft enough to tackle nonstick surfaces; and, oh, are absolutely adorable. If you’re looking for a practical, budget-friendly gift, this duo is a crazy-affordable $10. We love that they can be hung up by the loop at their mouths, and multiple reviewers confirm the crocheted construction is incredibly durable, standing up wash after wash. “Supercute at a great price,” one purchaser comments. “Sent as a gift, and she loved them.”
Dealing with leaky plastic containers when traveling is a serious drag. We’re betting numerous Domino readers could sympathize, considering Cadence’s seal-tight, TSA-approved storage capsules were a top seller. Our deputy editor, Julie Vadnal, has been singing the brand’s praises ever since she took a set on a press trip and not a single ounce of hair product was spilled. Typically priced at $84, the six-pack was 20% off for a good while; last we checked, it’s still 10% off. Reviewers love the magnetic feature and the fact that the rounded bottom means you can get to every last bit of that hair mask. The fact that they’re mostly made from recycled materials (20% of ocean-bound plastics and 30% manufacturing waste) just adds to their appeal.
Siesta Co. delivers on affordable tinned fish that’s as delicious as its packaging is appetizing. We couldn’t help but include the new-to-market conservas in multiple gift guides, and this five-pack certainly resonated with readers. Aside from the colorful branding, gifting a sample of seafood sustainably harvested in Spain (the sardines and mussels are true standouts) is an ideal present for the entertainers in your life.
Described by our deputy commerce editor, Samantha Weiss-Hills, as mini suitcases for your cords and cables, Domino readers got behind Dagne Dover’s Arlo tech organizers. “These thoughtfully designed products make clever gifts for anyone who travels regularly or just needs a little help in the organization department. They’ll never have to go fishing (for an earbud-charging cord) again,” writes Weiss-Hills. “Constructed of the same rip-proof neoprene and soft mesh as the rest of the Dagne line, they balance structure with softness.” For a limited time, readers can still snag this and more of the brand’s accessories at 25% off.
Hear us out: Fancy laundry detergent is a great gift. And Domino readers definitely agree. Spring—a combination of incense, lavender, moss, and bergamot—is our indisputable favorite blend from cult scent factory DedCool. Cool utilitarian packaging means you can skip the wrapping paper on this one, too: The 32-ounce aluminum canister features a few minimalist illustrations and lablike labeling. The L.A.-made formula is also 100% biodegradable; environmentally conscious; and safe to use on all fabrics, including sheets, intimates, and delicates. According to our tester, it shouldn’t irritate sensitive skin; previous purchasers confirm this in the reviews. One comments, “For 30 years I’ve been on the hunt to find a detergent that doesn’t make me want to claw my skin (thanks, eczema) and smells bomb diggity and is vegan and nontoxic.”
If you added up every product listed in Goop’s holiday gift guide this year, it would total roughly $900,000—a number as over the top as some of the brand’s own products. But after we combed through everything, we were pleasantly surprised to uncover more than a few home goods that didn’t actually cost a fortune. Of all our under-$40 finds, David Chang’s Momofuku soy sauce was a favorite (it’s also eligible for Prime shipping over at Amazon, where it’s rated 4.6 stars). You’ll be regularly reaching for this well-packaged pantry staple for more than just its looks. “Until you try Momofuku’s restaurant-quality soy sauce, you may find it hard to imagine that such a humble ingredient can make so much difference to your food. Trust me—even with supermarket sushi, the flavor boost is amazing! It’s expensive but (so far) worth it,” one reviewer writes.
This viral desk chair first spotted on TikTok quickly became a Domino reader must-buy. The main draw: Since it’s devoid of any bulky arms, you can comfortably sit “crisscross applesauce” (aka cross-legged) in it while you’re WFH. That and the seat cushion is a roomy 25.5 inches wide. Its one downfall may be the fact that it doesn’t sport wheels for easy transport, but otherwise it’s currently amassing a backing that deems it one of the most comfortable chairs on the Internet. If you’re sitting on the sofa or typing from bed these days, this is the sort of chair that may finally draw you to your desk.
