1. Get our favorite weighted blanket for its lowest price ever

Stop whatever you’re doing, because this deal on the Gravity Blanket is one of the best early Black Friday sales that we’ve seen. Right now, you can get this incredible weighted blanket, which we named the best weighted blanket of 2019, for more than $85 off its usual price, which really is insane. Designed to make it feel like you’re being hugged or held, this weighted blanket was a hit with our testers because of how comfy and easy it is to wash, especially compared to other weighted blankets. This deal is only good for today, so you should absolutely take advantage of it while you can and do not wait.

2. Lowest price alert: Apple Airpods Pro

This holiday season, everyone’s obsessing over Apple AirPods. While you can get the Apple Airpods with a Wireless Charging Case for $34 off right now (which is such a steal!), we’re actually more excited over this deal that’s happening on the brand new Airpods Pro. We tested them and found that they had the same incredible battery life and connectivity that we loved about the originals, but they’ve been boosted with new features like active noise cancellation and water resistance.

Also good: they have silicone eartips for a tighter fit. Right now, they’re on sale for the first time for $14 off. It may not be much and they do take at least a month to ship, but any discount on AirPods is great, especially if you were planning to buy them anyway. We also recommend getting AppleCare+ for Headphones for just $29, so you’re covered when you inevitably lose a ‘bud.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and whether you’re doing all the cooking or you’re just prepping for that Friendsgiving celebration that’s coming up too, chances are you could probably use some new sheet pans. Nordic Ware makes our all-time favorite baking sheets and right now, you can snag a two-pack of Baker’s Quarter Sheets for their all-time lowest price ever, at just under $16. While we haven’t tested these sheets directly, our reviewers swear by Nordic Ware half sheets, and we think the Baker’s Quarter sheets are bound to be just as good, not to mention essential if you’ve got lots of baking to do for the holidays.

Wish you knew more about your family’s history? Now you can learn all about it with AncestryDNA. But here’s where it really gets good: right now, you can get an AncestryDNA kit for $59, which is $40 less than its usual price. Several of us here at Reviewed (including me) have used this kit and love it, since you not only get a look at your full heritage, but you can use the service to trace back generations and fill out your family tree. This is also a really good time to buy it, since while the price might drop to $49 on Black Friday (that’s what happened last year), if you get it now you can get your DNA analyzed before the holiday rush and get your results quicker.
