Sometimes, the best gifts are the things your loved ones need, rather than what they want. During Amazon’s “12 Days of Deals,” you can find plenty of housewares, craft supplies and stocking stuffers. Here are just a few big bargains to help get you started.
All of these items get at least four stars from reviewers, and many are 50 percent off or more. But first, be sure you’ve compared prices with other sites on the web, so you know you’re getting the best.
And remember, these don’t have to be gifts for others — why not treat yourself this holiday season?
Don’t forget, if you’re not getting cash back every time you shop online, you’re leaving money on the table. A site like Ebates makes it easy. Just provide an email address, and you can get up to 40 percent cash back at more than 2,500 retailers. Learn more here.
