With loved ones to shop for, holiday parties to plan and a house that still needs to be prepped for the winter ahead (so relatable), you probably feel like you've got your hands full this month. And we totally get it! This is an exciting time of year, but also overwhelming when all of our "to-dos" start piling up on one another.

Amazon's 12 Days of Deals could not come at a better time. It's our go-to when we need both last-minute gifts and boring home essentials, like paper towels. With huge discounts across all departments, we can kill two metaphorical birds with one stone and pick up gifts like TVs and tablets, as well as smart vacuum cleaners and bedding sets for the guest room, all in the same "trip."

Amazon is also offering about ten new "Deals of the Day" every day, so you can snag highly coveted items like the Instant Pot and cast iron skillets for even less than usual, just in time for hosting holiday crowds and finishing up gift shopping.

The sale lasts until Saturday, December 14, so technically you still have plenty of time to shop. But if it were up to us? We'd go ahead and throw the items below in our carts.
