Coffee Gear Deals
Read our Best Grinders and Best Espresso Machines guides for more.
The Skerton Pro is a robust hand grinder, but it’s still pretty small and light, making it a good pick for camping or business trips. Since it’s bigger than the Mini-Slim Plus (see below), it can hold 100 grams of coffee at a time, plenty for several cups or a whole pot.
One of our favorite manual grinders, the Hario Mini-Slim Plus is great for travel. It’s hand-powered, so you don’t need an outlet and, as its name suggests, it’s slim and small (with a capacity of 24 grams, enough for about two cups of coffee), so it can easily fit into a carry-on or backpack.
The Solis Grind and Infuse is an espresso machine that includes a built-in burr grinder. Having a built-in grinder isn’t always a good thing, especially if you’re particular about your grind, but it definitely saves on counter space and convenience.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is sort of like a playable Studio Ghibli movie, in part because the famed animation studio contributed to the animated cutscenes. The character and environment designs really draw you into a colorful and lively world filled with mystery and magic, and it’s a great way to just kick back and spend an afternoon.
The hotly anticipated follow-up to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Survivor puts you in the shoes of a more experienced and mature Cal Kestis while he and his posse take on a mysterious new power threatening the remaining Jedi who survived Order 66. This deal snags you a bonus $10 Target gift card that you can use in-store or online. The promotion is also available for Xbox Series X.
A classic and classically difficult platformer, Ori and the Blind Forest is a must-have for any Switch library. It features unrelenting difficulty, wrapped up in lavish environments and inspired art and level design. Plus you get to be an adorable little wisp, and who doesn’t want that?
This bundle includes two killer games: the Resident Evil 2 remake and the Resident Evil 3 remake. Though to call them remakes is almost a disservice. There are new story elements, totally revamped gameplay, and tons of all-new scares. They keep the vibes of the classic games and reimagine them for modern hardware and modern audiences.
Sex Toy Deals
Check out our Best Sex Toys and Best Vibrators guides for other picks.
Dame’s Com (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of our favorite wand vibrators. It features an angled neck, a body fully clad in soft silicone, and vibration settings that are as gentle or as intense as you want. The angled neck makes it super easy to reach anywhere on your body or your partner’s body, which is helpful because it’s actually a surprisingly effective body massager.
The Dame Pom is a palm-sized vibrator with a flexible silicone body that easily fits into the contour of your palm, and just about any contour of your body. It has a shaped little beak for delivering targeted stimulation, and it’s super small and discreet.
Lelo’s Sona Cruise is a classic suction toy, but this one also features some secondary vibration. The Cruise in the name of the toy means that as you press it against your body it’ll gradually increase the intensity of the suction, which makes for an intuitive and dynamic experience I highly recommend.
Lelo’s Lily 2 is a tiny little palm-sized vibrator. It’s a little stiffer than the Pom, a great choice if you want something that has more of a rigid structure. Its internal motor is small but powerful, delivering buzzy vibrations to any erogenous zone.
