Christmas 2015: Getting the best deals

There are a few days in the run up to Christmas that let you get get bargains galore from major retailers.

The first to put on your calendar is Black Friday on 27 November 2015.

Traditionally, Black Friday is the day of the year that shops start making a profit and has become the time to get great Christmas gift deals.

These days it’s a time for people to get whipped up into a shopping frenzy – just make sure you check our reviews before you buy. There’s bad deals as well as good – a rubbish product is still a rubbish product even when it’s 20% off.

We will be regularly updating all the best deals as they come out and will be letting you know which are worth going for and which you should avoid.

We can help you get the best deals and prices without resorting to waiting in line all night, elbowing fellow shoppers out of the way and watching the fear set into the eyes of security guards.

If you miss out on Black Friday, don’t worry. Many online retailers promote loads of great deals just after the weekend. Called Cyber Monday, this is the day to grab a bargain on the Web before Christmas.

That’s all well and good when you know what to get people, but what about when you need ideas?

We can help with that too.

Christmas 2015: Gift Guides and Best ofs

We’re currently putting together a whole host of great Christmas content that will help guide you towards the perfect present.

Whether you’re looking to spend £10 or £100,000 (you might win the lottery between now and then, you never know) we’ll have something that fits every budget.

For now, though, you should check out our ‘Best of’ lists. These pull together the very best, and best value, products from some of the most popular Christmas categories in a clear and concise way. We’ve done all the legwork for you.

Rest assured that whatever your loved one wants – a great set of headphones, the perfect bean to cup coffee machine or a great laptop that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg – you will find the right gift here.

The rule of thumb is that if it’s not on the list, it’s not the best at that price point.

TV and Audio

Best Headphones: There are plenty of overpriced, poor quality headphones out there. This is a list of the best ranging from £40 to more than £500.

Best Portable Speakers: Bluetooth wireless speakers are a great gift but there are so many to choose from. The ones in this list are sure to bring a smile.

Best TVs: If you’re feeling flush with cash then getting a brand new 4K TV is a great Christmas gift for the whole family.

Best Value TVs: You don’t have to spend a bomb, though. This is a list of great TVs at an affordable price.

Best Running Headphones: Headphones for running are totally different from the ones you might use on a plane or in your house. These are perfect for the fitness fanatic.


Best Fitness Trackers: Alternatively fitness trackers are a way to help people get into shape or give that extra push for competitive types. TrustedReviews experts have reviewed the lot and picked the best.

Best Smartwatch: The Apple Watch may be the most popular smartwatch out there but there are a lot more to choose from, particularly if you’re an Android user.

Computing and Mobile

Best Tablet: Always a Christmas favourite, tablets come in many forms and prices.

Best Tablet for Kids: If you really don’t want your five year old cracking your iPad Air 2 screen then there are plenty of great, and reasonably cheap, tablets that are perfect for them.

Best Laptop: With Windows 10 released recently there’s been a wealth of new laptops. They don’t all cost a fortune, though. Our list ranges from £200 to over £1000.

Best Smartphone: If you want to become a favourite auntie or uncle this Christmas then a brand new high-end phone will do the job.

Best Cheap Mobile Phones: Alternatively if you want to be second favourite you can opt for one of these phones that cost less than £200, but are still great.


Best Gaming Headset: Immersion is an important part of gaming. So is not having to hear every explosion, gunshot or coin collected when someone else is playing. Gamers love a good headset and we’ve got one’s for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Best Graphics Card: PC gamers love to upgrade their desktop PCs and a graphics card is one of the best ways of doing it. Ranging from £100 to £800 there’s something for every budget this Christmas.

Best Gaming Laptops: Gaming laptops are a big purchase so getting it right is important. They are expensive and vary greatly in performance, screen quality and design.


Best Coffee Machine: We’ve got a range of brilliant coffee machines for the tweakers in your life including the best pod machines.

Best Spiralizer: Making pretty designs out of vegetables is fun and nutritious so spiralizers are a great gift for kitchen geeks.

Best Kitchen Gadgets: Not sure what to get for the cook in your life? Here are some great ideas.

Best Bread Makers: Mmmm the smell of freshly baked bread, nothing beats it. These bread makers can make cakes and jams too.

And finally...

Best Vacuum Cleaner: Are you passive aggressive? Do you like Christmas Day to be fraught with tension and thinly veiled contempt? Then buy your loved one a vacuum cleaner from our list and be safe in the knowledge that, at least, you’ll be getting them a great one.

We’ll be updating these lists with all the new products that we review in the runup to the holidays so bookmark this page to make Christmas 2015 one of your best yet.
