18 Eleventh-Hour Holiday Deals on Games, Headphones, and More

It’s the weekend before you-know-what, and that means lots of last-minute shopping. Or, if you’ve actually planned things, that means kicking back and watching everyone else do their last-minute shopping. I’m firmly in the first category. Is it really the holiday season if you’re not doing all your shopping just days before?

Shipping times were already inflated due to y’know, the pandemic, but now every retailer is even more backlogged than ever before. That means some of the items on this list won’t arrive until after Christmas, so double-check expected shipping times before confirming your purchases. You should also peruse through our Last-Minute Gifts Ideas guide as we’ve curated a few items that purportedly will arrive before December 25. With that said, here are our favorite weekend deals on games, home appliances, and Baby Yoda socks.
