Join Hafta-Ichi to Research the article “8 Prime Day Deals Under $25”
On Amazon Prime Day, it’s often the big ticket items that get the most hype, like 4K TVs and laptops. But there are also plenty of deals on cheaper goods, whether you’re thinking ahead for holiday gifts or simply shopping for yourself. Here we’ve rounded up the best deals we’ve found that cost less than $25.
Good-bye quarantine fuzz
If you’ve finally gotten sick of your pandemic beard (up above or down below) a strong, durable beard trimmer will hack through it without nicking the skin. One of our favorites for both facial hair and your pubic hair is the Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 Trimmer. Because it’s mostly made from plastic, rather than stainless steel, it’s lighter and more practical for travel than most budget trimmers. The 3000 includes seven guide combs, a detail trimmer head, and a nose hair trimmer.

Salad, featuring centrifugal force
If you eat salads and you’re not using a salad spinner you are living in the vegetable stone age. Unlike handwashing, a salad spinner cleans greens by actually removing the dirty water, instead of letting it sit on the leaves. It also dries your greens more efficiently, which is crucial unless you like soggy, wet leaves. The best one we’ve found for the job is the Oxo Good Grips: its pump makes it the easiest to use and it also stores better than similarly sized spinners.

Listen, we could probably all use something to help de-stress these days. For that, we recommend the Urpower essential oil diffuser. We tested several, and thanks to its sleek look (which complements any home), easy-to-use functions, and customizable colored lights it was our favorite. Paired with a nice-smelling essential oil, this diffuser easily creates a spa-like environment with nearly no effort, which is all the more delightful at this time when spas are out of the question for many people.

OXO 4-Piece Reusable Straw and Brush Set with Case
Deal price: $10; street price: $13
If you don’t already know, plastic straws are really wasteful, and also they can hurt turtles (!!!). Both are good reasons to invest in a reusable straw that you can clean and carry with you. Our top pick, after testing several, is the Oxo 4-piece set, which has a durable metal base topped with an extendable silicone tip that’s comfortable (and safe) to drink from, and they come with a case and a brush.

About time for an Alexa
If you’re looking to extend Alexa to other parts of your home, the Echo Dot speaker is the best option for people who don’t want to spend a lot. The Dot doesn’t sound nearly as good as the Echo, but it works just fine for playing the radio or for music when you don’t need to fill an entire room. It’ll also connect to a Bluetooth speaker or larger audio system if you want better sound quality. It listens just as well as the full-size Echo and comes in several fun colors.

If you’ve ever rushed home panicking to check whether you closed the garage door, then no. 1 you are a human, and no. 2 you should get a smart garage-door opener controller. These small devices connect to your existing garage-door opener and let you open or close it (or just check on its status remotely) from anywhere, using an app or even a voice assistant like Alexa. The Chamberlain was our second-favorite pick, and of those we tested it was the simplest to set up and it’s compatible with all garage doors made by Craftsman, Chamberlain, and LiftMaster manufactured after 1993.

Easy as pie
If you weren’t a baker before the pandemic, you probably are now (and if not, there’s still…ample time to pick it up). The right pie plate will make your culinary creations look good and taste good, preventing slumping crusts and soggy bottoms. We’ve tested 19 pie plates since 2013, and the best for the job is the Oxo Good Grips plate. It’s just the right size for a sweet lemon meringue or a savory quiche, it bakes evenly, and the clear glass allows you to check if the bottom of your pie is browned.

We all now basically live on our laptops. If you’re in need of a new charger, or if you’d just like to have two in the house so you don’t keep needing to pause your Zoom meetings to sprint around looking for the one you do have (just me?) now is a good time to invest. The AUKEY Omnia is not one of our top picks, but it performs well for its price (especially now when the price is this low). It has one USB-C port at 60 to 65 watts, and a USB-A port supporting 12- or 18-watt charging.
