Holiday weekend sales, including Presidents’ Day, can be lackluster. A discounted price that’s already been available for months isn’t really a deal. And don’t get me started on prices that get marked up right before a sale begins. We sorted through the fluff to find the stuff—truly good Presidents’ Day deals on WIRED-recommended gear. From excellent headphones to budget-friendly bedding, these discounts won’t waste your time.
Updated February 20: We’ve added seven new deals, including a standing desk, Chromebook, mesh Wi-Fi system, and a USB-C microphone.

While this photo frame has sold for its MSRP of $210 recently, it’s usually around $180. The deal price is the best we have tracked. This is the fancier, remote-free version of the Nixplay frame that received an honorable mention in our digital picture frames guide.
We really like this weighted blanket, and the deal price makes it even more enticing. It has different textures on each side to help you feel as comfy as possible, and it’s big enough for two people to cuddle under. Every weight capacity is…
