Be sure to check our deals from earlier in the month, many of which are still on sale, including discounted Prana apparel, plus robot vacuums and smartwatches. And speaking of self-love, we have a separate story on Valentine’s Day Sex Tech Deals for your viewing pleasure.

Updated February 8, 2024: We’ve added several new deals on phones, flowers, and gift cards.

Tech and Toy Deals

Sony WH-1000XM5

Of all the wireless headphones we’ve tested (and that’s a lot!), these are the very best for most people. The WH-1000XM5 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) have 30 hours of battery life and excellent sound quality, plus the noise canceling is some of the best in the business. This price matches the lowest we’ve tracked.

These earbuds were $20 cheaper during the 2023 holiday shopping season, but this is still a great deal. They have a closed-ear design and active noise cancellation, and they’re comfy. Get more recommendations in our Best Wireless Earbuds guide.

The JBL Authentics 200 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is a spectacular smart speaker. It works with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa—most speakers only have one or the other. It’s compact and it looks polished, and the sound is glorious.

This charger was discontinued by Apple, but it’s a solid option if you’re still using Lightning cables to charge your devices. It can top off your iPhone and your Apple Watch simultaneously, and it folds into a neat little package once the job is done. Woot is owned by Amazon; if you’re a Prime member, you can pay with Amazon during checkout to get free shipping.

Skylight Digital Picture Frame

This is an honorable mention in our Best Digital Picture Frames guide.We don’t love the MSRP, but this discount makes it more appealing, and it’s the lowest we tend to see for the 10-inch version. Some other sizes are also on sale, but the prices aren’t as enticing based on historical data. You can read more about it here.

This price matches what we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year. If you watch a lot of Amazon Prime Video, the Fire TV Stick is the streaming device you need. You can stream from virtually any of the top services, but the operating system is heavily skewed toward the company’s content.

This 630-piece building set is a great gift for any Marvel fan. Build an evil-looking Baby Groot, complete with sharp teeth and tentacles. The figure stands nearly a foot tall, so it’ll make a good display once the construction is complete. It was slightly less expensive earlier in the week, but this is still a killer deal.

Nintendo Switch OLED

The Nintendo Switch OLED (8/10, WIRED Recommends) usually costs $350, so the real steal here is the $50 Dell gift card. It’ll be delivered to your email address and can be used on anything your heart desires … so long as it’s available from Dell’s store. That includes accessories and games, which we have guides for here and here. The gift card expires 90 days after you receive it—use it or lose it!

This is one of our favorite gaming controllers. It’s compatible with Apple, PC, Android, and Steam. This price is the best we’ve seen—it’s even cheaper than we saw during the holiday shopping season last year. Battery life is solid, and there are a bunch of customization options as well.

We like the Google Pixel 7A (8/10, WIRED Recommends). We’ve rated it the best Pixel phone for most people, the best cheap phone, and the best Android phone for your money. It last fell to this price during Black Friday. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better phone for the money, and if your sweetie has a cracked screen or a potato camera, they might love this gift for Valentine’s Day.

The Motorola Razr+ (7/10, WIRED Review) goes on sale for this price every so often, but we don’t typically see it drop any lower. It has some quirks, but for a folding phone, it’s hard to find much better. If you miss the feeling of snapping your phone shut to end a call, this deal might be worth your while.

Garmin Venu 3

The Garmin Venu 3 is a great Apple Watch alternative. It’s one of our favorite Garmin watches thanks to its nice build quality, excellent battery life, and snazzy software features. Aside from the usual spate of health tracking capabilities, like ECG readings and oxygen monitoring, there’s sleep coaching (with nap detection) and Morning Report (which gives you relevant information when you wake up). It’s a good option for Android owners in the market for a fitness tracker.

This is the larger version of the best MacBook you can buy. The 2022 Apple MacBook Air (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is great, but it’s expensive. This price is one of the best we have seen for it. There are rumors of a new MacBook Air coming in March, but good Apple products tend to stay relevant even after new versions are released.

Deals on Coffee, Candy, and Everything Else

This is a great gift for coffee lovers, but it’s also an easy way to save $10 on a three-bag subscription if you’ve been wanting to try Trade Coffee. It doesn’t save you a ton of cash, but a deal is a deal. Trade is our favorite coffee subscription service.

Forget the chalky praline-filled chocolates or roulette-style assortments. This is a solid deal on something sweet. You can use Subscribe & Save for an even lower price—just be sure to cancel your subscription afterward if you aren’t interested in subsequent deliveries.

We like a lot of Buffy’s bedding and bedding-adjacent products, and many of them are on sale right now with free shipping. Some standouts include the Wiggle Pillow for $93 ($16 off), the Breeze Sheet Set for $166 ($29 off), and the Cloud Comforter for $124 ($21 off). The Breeze Sheets are some of our very favorite bedsheets, and I sleep with the Cloud Comforter every night. It rocks. Some of these prices are matched at Amazon, where you’ll need to clip the on-page coupons to get the discounts.

We haven’t put these in a guide yet, but I’ve been testing Klaw’s walking sneakers and I love them. They’re extremely comfortable—I’m currently in a walking boot due to an ankle injury, so I’ve been relying heavily on my Klaws on the other foot, and it’s supremely comfortable. The footbed is cushioned and supportive, the shoe’s design helps you walk naturally, and the tops are even rainproof.

Cricut Joy

The Cricut Joy (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a cute and compact crafting machine. It goes on sale during every shopping holiday, but these prices are good based on historical data. One gripe I had with the Cricut Joy was that there were too many projects I could do, and I didn’t know how to get started. I’ve linked to the starter kit that includes a few different bits and pieces to test out the Cricut Joy’s capabilities, but other bundles are also on sale. The only limit is your creativity. You can make greeting cards, vinyl cutouts and stickers, monogrammed goods, or wedding invitations. This bundle also includes a free month of Cricut Access, which is a library of designs and templates. Make sure to cancel it if you aren’t interested in paying $10 per month after the trial is over.

The Bouqs

I’ve used The Bouqs for many years. I like its visually distinctive flower arrangements, which also tend to be affordable compared to similar bouquets from other companies. This is a solid deal if you want to get flowers delivered to your Valentine. Just make sure you order earlier than later, lest you end up paying exorbitant shipping fees.

If your sweetheart is a tough nut to crack, or they’re just addicted to scented candles from Bath and Body Works, this gift card sale may be worth browsing. Some are discounted, and some will get you Amazon credits back. There are options from all sorts of brands, from Instacart to Victoria’s Secret. Each of these gift cards is on sale with a unique coupon code, so be sure to enter that during checkout to get your discount. There’s a limit of one card per brand per customer.
