Summer is finally upon us, which means you’ll probably be taking trips or spending time with friends quite often. Whether you’re taking a trip to the beach or having a staycation, you’re going to want music to keep you entertained. This speaker from Anker is small enough to throw into a suitcase, has 15 hours of playtime, and is waterproof for poolside jams. Right now, you can get it for 20% off by clipping the coupon button below the price on Amazon. If you want louder sound, you can get two and connect them, which you might as well do at this price anyway.

4. A machine that makes “nugget ice” at one of its lowest prices
Let’s be honest: Nugget ice is superior to regular ice. I’m talking about those small, easy-to-chew ice cubes that were made iconic by Sonic. Their small shape evenly cools down drinks and makes cocktails look super sophisticated. Right now, you can make your own at home with a discounted Opal Nugget Ice Maker. Currently, you can get it for $50, which brings the price down to $415. It’s still pretty pricey, but after testing this ice maker, we were blown away by how perfectly shaped the ice was and how easy it was to use. But if you consider yourself a mixologist or are just obsessed with the nugget ice served at Sonic, we think this purchase is completely worth it.

5. Our favorite kids’ headphones at their lowest price ever
With kids constantly listening to “Baby Shark” on repeat to watching Jojo Siwa’s latest music video, you probably want to give them a good set of headphones so don’t have to deal with the pain of listening to these sounds too. But before you give them a set of hand-me-downs, you should keep in mind that kids’ developing ears need headphones that offer volume control and won’t damage their ears. The best headphones for kids that we’ve ever tried, the Puro Sound Labs PuroQuiet Wireless Kids Headphones, offer volume control, noise cancellation, and are completely wireless—plus, they come in fun colors.
Right now, they’re just $79.99 directly from Puro and Amazon in the color pink, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for them. Our runner-ups—the Puro Sound Labs BT2200s—are also a great option and they’re on sale for just $59.99 at Puro and Amazon, too, in the colors purple or hot pink. Both options are at great prices, making it the perfect time to pick up a new set of headphones for the kids before your next road trip.

6. An adorable waffle maker at its lowest price
I currently own the Dash mini waffle maker, and let me tell you it’s completely changed my breakfast game. It’s small enough to fit in my small, cramped kitchen and it produces the cutest, little waffles in no time. Right now, you can save on this extra-adorable heart-shaped one. It’s already cheap to begin with, but right now you can save an extra $3 on it. In my humble opinion heart-shaped waffles are superior to the circular ones. Not only do they have a better aesthetic, but they’re shaped in a way that’s easy to fold, so you can get the ultimate syrup dunkage.

7. An essential oil diffuser back down to its lowest price
Essential oil diffusers not only help make your home smell incredible, but they also don’t pose the risk of burning your house down if you leave it running—unlike a candle. Innogear makes the best essential oil diffuser we’ve ever tested, and right now you can the slightly smaller 150ml model for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. It can run longer—up to 9 hours continuously or 11 hours on the intermittent setting, meaning you can have good scents in your home all day long.
The small size, slim design, and multi-color light options make it even more eye-catching. Plus, a lot of our readers have also been snapping up this set of six essential oils to enjoy with their diffusers, which is also at its lowest price (just $10!). It includes lemongrass, peppermint, orange, eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree scents.
