Now that you’ve unpacked all your presents, eaten Christmas lunch, and drank all the sherry and wine, it’s time to settle for a day on the couch and turn your attention to one of the biggest shopping events of the year: the Boxing Day sales.

“Alexa, what’s the best deal on the Amazon Echo dot?”
Well, let’s take Alexa’s place here and share the best deal we’ve discovered on Amazon’s Echo dot on the Amazon Boxing Day sale.
Amazon Echo dot 4th generation: Was £49.99, now £28.99, Amazon.co.uk
You’ve probably seen one of these Alexa devices in action – and that’s because they’re so good – so now’s the time to join the party. We can vouch for how well the 4G device performs as featured in our review of the best smart speakers. “If you’re an Alexa user, or just dip your toe into the world of smart speakers, the Echo dot is a great choice for a non-invasive speaker that produces great sound and slots well into the Amazon ecosystem,” our writer noted.

Trust us, this is a great deal from Elemis
Elemis Collagen Cleansing Balm 100g: used to be £44, now £32.93, Amazon.co.uk
Elemis Cleansing Balm is enriched with Rose Wax, Mimosa, Elderberry, Omega, Starflower Oil and an array of essential oils. It has a buttery texture that melts instantly upon contact with dry skin. When we tested it, our reviewer said, “Skin felt soft and smooth, with the subtle glow you often find after a facelift. From start to finish, the experience is a luxurious treat, and the generous 100g tub will last for months, because you only need a small amount., Wash off But since there’s a 25 percent off discount right now (and three for two across select Elemis products), we think it’s more than justified.

Amazon slashes price of Shark vacuum cleaners on Boxing Day
Shark IZ201UK Cordless Anti-Wrinkle Vacuum Cleaner: Was £349, now £179.99, Amazon.co.uk
While we haven’t reviewed this exact model, a similar Shark design won the best buy spot in our review of the best cordless vacuums. Our tester said, “One of the best features of the vacuum cleaner is its anti-roll function — if you have long hair, you’ll know cleaning your carpet — which cleverly removes hair from the brush roll as you clean.”
With these qualities and its reputation as a brand, Shark vacuums tend to sell out quickly during sale events, so we suggest acting quickly to secure this deal.

We found a bargain on Dior sauvage
Dior Sauvage Eau de Parfum, 60ml: Was £69, now £59, Boots.com
This scent is inspired by the fresh, clean punch you get from applying a classic cologne. It has notes of citrus and amber, making it an ideal choice for summer. Although there are no huge savings, £10 is better than nothing.

The best TV deal to grab right now
An entry-level 4K TV uses an LED display that, while not as rich as a high-end OLED or QLED screen, produces a vibrant color palette and dynamic contrast ratio. It has Alexa built in, so you can control your smart TV with just your voice which is a very useful feature.

Enjoy a peaceful sleep with these Boxing Day mattress deals
It’s safe to say that lumpy, bumpy mattresses don’t invite anyone to bed, no matter how pretty the bedspread, pillows, and sheets are. Typically costing anywhere from a few hundred to over a thousand pounds, this bedroom necessity isn’t the most wallet-friendly purchase.
But – thanks to Boxing Day Sale – you might be able to get more for your money and we’ve spotted some of our favorite mattress sellers dropping their prices by the hundreds.
With the likes of Emma, Simba, and Eve, to name a few, all joining the festive discount, we’ve handpicked our 2021 creme de la creme mattress deals:
