There are an infinite number of items I patiently wait for to go on sale. But no time of the year speaks to my coupon-cutting soul more than December. Some people argue that discount sales have ruined the spirit of holidays, with sales occupying our minds and email inboxes. I counter that argument with the idea that some people wait all year to show their love through gifts. A grand display of affection showcased in the form of a $400 hair dryer. So, what am I hoping goes on sale this month? I thought you would never ask.

Apple AirPods Pro
Originally, we all laughed in unison when Apple unveiled wireless earbuds in 2016. However, three years later and I have yet to enter a room where at least one person is not wearing a pair. The line “why fit in when you were born to stand out” passes through my mind every time I think about buying a pair. But now that the new pro version offers noise-canceling features, fitting in does not sound so bad after all.
Dyson Airwrap Styler
Over the years, Dyson’s hair tools have magnified in popularity the same way swooped bangs did the summer before seventh grade. The Airwrap is pretty expensive, but for the number of things it does without extreme heat — curl, wave, smooth, dry — you save over time. Kiss your blow dry membership goodbye with this easy-to-use tool.
SLIP Beauty Sleep Collection
It is almost 2020 and you are still sleeping on cotton? Could not be me. Shouldn’t be you either once you purchase this. This high-grade mulberry silk pillowcase and eye mask duo guarantees healthier hair and skin because the silk helps reduce friction that causes frizz and breakage.
Barefoot Dreams The Cozychic Throw
Any avid Kardashian fan knows that this is the throw to end all throws. Softer than clouds, this 100 percent polyester microfiber throw is the key to a cozy winter night in. Sip on something sweet, cuddle up with a good book and let this throw envelop you in warmth.
Thinx Period-Proof Underwear
I would bet my paycheck that a pair of Thinx would change your life. The reusable period-proof underwear can absorb anywhere from one to four tampons worth depending on which style you spring for. The signature technology is moisture-wicking, leak-resistant and fights odors, making the entire experience more bearable.
Every time I see a Roomba, I feel as though I am living in a dystopian novel. This robot vacuums your floor through an app and the newer versions can be paired with voice assistant Alexa. No one really needs a Roomba, but if it goes on sale, I will be sure to never vacuum myself again.
Aquis Rapid Dry Waffle Hair Turban
This hair towel is a guaranteed game changer. It speeds up drying time, is super absorbent and more importantly, it lasts forever. When it comes to beauty purchases, I like to look at the ROI. How silky will my hair be afterward? How much will I save on hair care products? The numbers stack in your favor with this microfiber towel.
I have wanted this FDA-cleared facial toning device for as long as I can remember. The NuFACE works to improve facial tone and contour and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in less than five minutes. Knowing that I am one online sale away from at-home facials gives me goosebumps.
Sunday Riley Good Genes
Some would say this product is youth in a bottle. It is me. I am some. This lactic acid treatment works to fight signs of visible aging and exfoliate the skin. Lemongrass and aloe tag team to soothe the skin and emit radiance. Good Genes for those of us whose genes may have failed us in the skin department.
ReFa CARAT Face Roller
Nirvana is possible when an esthetician is kneading your skin during a facial. Bring that feeling home and add it to your everyday routine with this waterproof roller that helps stimulate the lymphatic system. In my eyes, noticeably contoured skin is worth every penny.
Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume
A beauty queen once told me that her beauty secret is that she sprays perfume on her hair to smell great all day long. The only issue is that the alcohol in most perfume damages hair. This is why I need to get my hands on Sachajuan’s hair perfume, which was designed specifically for hair use. It moisturizes, reduces static, adds UV protection and the sophisticated floral scent screams “oh, she has her life together!”
Artis Oval Brush
I am really hoping to perfect my makeup look this holiday season. The Artis oval brushes use proprietary CosmeFibre to seamlessly blend your favorite face makeup products. The handle mimics the way your fingers move across your face. No more cake face thanks to Artis.
WelleCo The Super Elixir
Australian model Elle Macpherson started WelleCo to share how the body can heal and thrive naturally if given the right nutrients. Her super elixir is a daily dietary supplement that contains over 40 plant-based nutrients and can be found on a member of the Sunday Edit’s desk at any moment. We swear by it for glowing skin, healthy hair, gut health and a strong immune system.
