Missing the relaxing weekend vibes? Retail therapy might help. We scoured the web for the best deals on products we think you'll love. Whether you're in the market for something specific or you just want to treat yourself, check out what we found:
1. Smart home: A digital personal assistant for under $50
Amazon's smart assistant, Alexa, is amazing. You can have it play music from Spotify, set reminders, re-order paper towels, tell you the weather, and so much more. The Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker is the cheapest way to get Alexa in your home, and it's down to just $39.99 today (usually $49.99). I have one in my kitchen and we use it every day for things like setting a timer to remember to take out cookies and playing the "Moana" soundtrack for my daughter during lunchtime. -TJ Donegan, Editor-in-Chief, Imaging and Electronics
2. Kitchen: The perfect cheeseboard for your holiday parties
Stop serving your appetizers on regular, old plates. This best-selling bamboo cheese board, typically $60-$75, is designed to make you the host/hostess with the most/mostest. Not only are there groozes specially designed to keep crackers organized, but the board has a built-in cutlery set so you don't have to scramble to find the right cheese knives.
3. Home: Indulge in a new set of towels
If you've been using the same towels for so long they are better at moving water around your body that drying you off, it's time to get a fresh set. Right now, the #1 best selling bath towel set on Amazon is marked down to $22.94 for the gray set, down from the usual price range of $25-$40. This set gives you two bath towels, two hand towels, and four wash clothes—all 100% cotton.
4. Home: Online-only discounts from Target for around the home

Yes, you can mix and match between board and video games.
6 & 7. Beauty: Put your best face forward with these Sephora deals
With almost 3k reviews and a 4-star average rating, this insane concealer is highly-pigmented, full-coverage, transfer- and water-resistant. While it's heavy enough to cover tattoos (really!), it's light and buildable enough for stubborn dark circles, too. Best of all? It won't budge until you take it off. -Jessica Teich, Staff Writer and Beauty Expert
Oh hello, perfect highlighter, nice to see you on sale. Becca is everyone's favorite highlighter brand (including Chrissy Teigen). This cream formula is fingertip-friendly so that you can get gorgeous, buildable shimmer that looks dewy and more natural than its powder counterpart. -Jessica Teich, Staff Writer and Beauty Expert
8, 9, & 10. Fashion: Boots are in season and on sale at Nordstrom
Frye boots were one of the best investments I've ever made. I bought a pair of Veronica Slouchy Boots over six years ago and they are still in perfect condition. Actually, they're in better condition now because the more worn out they are, the better they look and the better they feel. Frye boots will help you achieve true vintage style sans blisters, and some of the most popular styles are on sale at Nordstrom right now. All are highly rated, but I personally recommend the Veronica style. -Samantha Matt, Manager, Audience Development
