What are the hottest gifts this holiday season?

Whether you take pride in being a great gift giver or require a bit of inspiration, shopping for the best holiday and wedding gifts is a particular skill unto itself. Unlike anniversary gifts and engagement gifts, wedding and holiday gifts are usually home-related—think practical appliances, vacuum cleaners, or something for their pets. Sure, a cutting board or new set of dishes might not sound like the most sentimental gift out there. But they're still helpful items that most families are thrilled to receive.

The Day After Thanksgiving (Friday) is known as Black Friday, an enormous-scale event throughout the US. This used to be unofficially or officially the start of the holiday shopping season. Almost all stores come out with Doorbuster Sales with the early bird special to attract consumers to their shop. In the last few years, we have witnessed a trend towards bringing those Black Friday Sales online before Friday. If you are a pet person, this is a godsend for you to pick the perfect gift for your friend's wedding or a family holiday.

Why should you choose a vacuum cleaner as a holiday gift?

That said, in my opinion, those are the best gifts they can use. If they are into pets (like myself), a budget-friendly pet-oriented vacuum cleaner is the way to go. To add a cherry on top, Black Friday is knocking on the door, and you can get amazing value for superb items during the sales.

After going through multiple pet accessories over the years, I found vacuum cleaners indispensable for a household with pets. As such, I will recommend one that won't break the bank without making any compromises. The one I use now is the Ofuzzi H8 Apex. It is a perfect bang for the buck pet and the one I recommend as my best pick up on a great sale during Black Friday. I must disclaim that I am indeed affiliated with Ofuzzi, but I will only present facts here. If there is any doubt about the veracity, I warmly welcome you to check out the Verified customer reviews on Amazon and the inter-webs (and the customer reviews section below).

Introduction to the Ofuzzi H8 Apex and what makes it so special?

Here is a brief rundown on an objective evaluation of why I am so feature-wise enamored by it and have bought it for multiple family members already.

- Handy Accessories: I can switch between four different accessories for the most effective cleaning. Includes a crevice nozzle for narrow spaces, two for surfaces like sofas which is a blessing for removing pet hair off my carpets, and one for general use alongside the car. Besides, the crevice nozzle can be used with other accessories.

- Ultra-Lightweight: At only 1.2lbs (540g), it's a single-handed gadget. The lock on the dust canister prevents accidental opening, so I can empty it seconds after cleaning. Moreover, dust and fur removal is a breeze.

- Powerful Suction: It uses an M1 brushless motor (which in layman's terms offers a longer lifespan) and delivers a surging 30Wa/12kPa of suction – which, if you are into engineering like me, you will know is a heavy suction power for this use case. It effortlessly picks up stubborn fur, dust, and fluff.

- Dual-Layer Filtration System: This is one of the primary reasons I picked it (besides the value for money). According to the literature, its stainless steel filter and HEPA filter are washable and reusable, and the combination can filter out 99.95% of particles.

- Easy Storage: As always, convenience is key: It comes with a handy storage bag ​which I can use to neatly store the gadget and its accessories away in a drawer. Moreover, it charges USB-C so that I can use any phone charger.

User Reviews

As is natural, there are hundreds of verified customer reviews on Amazon. I recommend you check them out though I am sharing a few excerpts here. Still, reading the complete ones make sense to be sure I am not cherry-picking here.

Verified user "My two cents" (must be their internet name) wrote, "Love this handheld vacuum! I use it in the laundry room to quickly clean up the dryer lint that manages to accumulate on the various surfaces & baseboards, as well as the kitty litter that my cat is constantly tracking out of her litter robot. The attachments are smart & useful, and the little storage bag makes it easy for me to store on the hooks I've got on the wall. This whole setup felt more expensive - the weight & feel of it seemed of a higher manufacturing standard than one might typically see with items like this. It's super easy to clean out the dust bin & filters, and it also goes a long time between charges! This has made my laundry room & floors so much cleaner. I highly recommend it!"

Signer Sean. wrote in their review, "Just got this today to get all the lil crevices in my semi truck that have filled up with dirt. Surprising power for this product, I must say. Nice attachments and extremely well made. My dog's hairs also are a breeze nowadays."

Pet-lover aquaholic wrote, "I use this daily as part of my bedtime routine. I have a cat and dog and OCD regarding clean sheets. I take this and it quickly sucks up all the hair, dirt from paws, and everything else. I use it to vacuum my desk, chair, and everything. It has powerful suction. I don't even use the brush attachment because it can pull the pet hair right out. I use it on high power, so it doesn't last as long but I don't need it to. It charges super fast. The best part is how easy it is to empty. You can push the bottom while holding over the trash bin, or you can easily twist it off and it'll release all the dirt and hair sucked into the filter. I also have the Ofuzzi cordless stick vacuum. They are very powerful machines."

“It is so nice to clean everywhere. I would like to buy one more.”, wrote Nasuo on Amazon briefly.

"This vacuum is perfect for me! My kitty tracks litter which this vac picks up very well. Now I don't have to drag my larger vac out just for light cleaning. It's great for cat hair, even on furniture. This has made my life so much easier. I can't believe how light it is and nice the power is. I'm thrilled! Highly recommend", wrote Amazon user sauci1 who seems to be a pet lover like myself.

As of writing, even though Black Friday is still several days away, that hasn't stopped a bunch of early sales from kicking off. Whether it's momentum from this fall's second Prime Day sale or retailers just trying to get ahead, there are plenty of early Black Friday deals to shop right now. Also, it gives a signal as to what is to come on the momentous Friday.

Concluding Thoughts

With the ubiquitous development in thoughtful engineering, value for money has skyrocketed. Now, you can get a handheld portable vacuum cleaner for your pets around the house or cars for around $100, which would have cost you tenfold even several years ago. The Ofuzzi H8 Apex is a prime example of this. I feel it is an excellent testament to the thoughtful engineers who made all the right decisions in making such a fantastic product while keeping the price within reach of American middle-class weddings and family gifts.

So, while I wait for the best deals on the shopping Friday after Thanksgiving, it's always great to stay ahead and if you see an insane deal now, grab it. Happy shopping for yourself and your friends this season, folks!
