As “Stuff People,” we on the WIRED Gear team are obsessed with things—what do you need, how much should it cost, and where should you get it? As the Covid-19 pandemic took hold earlier this year, we watched in amazement as the rest of you became Stuff People too. You need to wear a mask at all times in public—where do you find one? Do air purifiers or fans help ward off infection? How about a humidifier?
In the course of our ceaseless searches, we've come across quite a few Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on stuff you just might need. Don't see anything here you like? Don't forget to check out our other guides, including the Best Air Purifiers, Best Face Masks, and Everything You Need to Work From Home.
We strike through items that sell out or are no longer at their deal price as of publishing. Discounts sometimes return, so check for yourself.
