The presents have been opened, the gift cards are burning a hole in your pocket and now it’s time to treat yo’self. It’s Boxing Day, which means many retailers across the country are offering mind-boggling sales on all of those items you’ve been secretly coveting the past 12 months. Act quickly though, because these hot deals are only around on Dec. 26, and they’re bound to go fast.
No two headphones are made alike, and so if you’re looking for a really good pair you’ll need to shell out some dough. Thankfully these particular noise-cancelling headphones are a whopping $120 off on Boxing Day. We’d say, “you’re welcome,” but we know you can’t even hear us with those things in.

Your own weighted blanket
If you’re anything like us you’ve been eyeing a weighted blanket for weeks now. Heck, maybe you even got one for someone else as a present over the holidays. Well now it’s your turn because Sport Chek is offering their 15-pound model at a whopping 70 per cent off, and we have a feeling it’s going to sell out fast.

The ultimate blender
If healthy smoothies, warming soups and homemade nut milks are calling you in the New Year, you’re going to need a pretty stellar machine to keep up. Enter the Vitamix, which is basically the Rolls Royce of kitchen blenders. With a 2.2 horsepower motor, 16 speeds and $250 off, the question is why wouldn’t you invest in one?

A personal assistant
Move over smart speakers because there’s a new hub in town, and we love that it pretty much does everything we need. The Echo Show streams series and music, calls your friends and family, helps you to organize your grocery list and can even connect to your thermostat, doorbell and more (depending on your accessories). And now, because it actually does everything, it’s also a whopping $80 off.
Echo Show, $220 at Amazon.
The best night’s sleep you’ll ever have
We know you’ve heard about Endy, a.k.a. the mattress in a box. We recently invested in one and it’s true—it really is the best night’s sleep you’ll ever have. If you’ve been on the fence about ordering from this Canadian company then now is the time to jump in—they’re having a 10 per cent storewide sale for Boxing Day, and we genuinely recommend all the things they have.

A smart thermostat
Have a home to heat or cool? In that case, why not take all the worry out of programming the temperature while also saving yourself a few bucks? The Nest Learning Thermostat remembers your preferred temperatures, takes note of your schedule, connects to your mobile devices and also programs itself to save energy. And now, with $150 off, it’s the best way to treat yo’self like an adult on Boxing Day—especially since this package also comes with a Google Mini.

A kids tablet
No matter where you stand on the idea of screen time, all parents could use a break. And given the educational capabilities of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet, we’re all-in. The device comes with a kid-friendly case and boasts a 10-hour battery life, plus it has twice the storage of the old model, which makes this one a saving grace for parents everywhere. Did we mention it’s also $40 off?!

Sparkling water all year long
The SodaStream really is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does it cut down on plastic waste and save you cash in the long run, but you can customize those bubbles and flavours to your exact tastes.
