The recent market flood of CBD-infused products can create an overwhelming sense of analysis paralysis when you decide to sample what’s on offer. That’s kind of ironic, though, since CBD is intended to help you relax. Holiday understands this and believes vacation is a state of mind, and its CBD-infused Gummies can get you there. The brand’s premium CBD Gummies contain 10mg of hemp CBD per piece, as well as a small amount of MCT oil, a form of saturated fatty acid typically derived from coconuts. These gummies are guaranteed and lab-tested to be free of THC for a 100 percent non-psychoactive experience — all chill, no high, with three delicious flavors to choose from. Take $10 off your first order from Holiday when you use the discount code GP10 and find your own vacation state of mind.
Bulova Accu-Swiss Murren Automatic Watch
Save 74%: Among historic brand Bulova‘s various notable collections, Accu-Swiss-branded watches contain Swiss mechanical movements and often have a retro styling. This currently deeply discounted Murren is a great example, and it is particularly handsome with that bracelet which recalls the brand’s past. It contains a Swiss automatic movement — probably a Sellita SW 200 with 38 hours of power reserve. With an easy-wearing 40mm-wide, 11mm thick steel case topped with sapphire crystal, this is a great deal for just $375, or 74% off its retail price of $1,450. — Zen Love

Hario V60 Pour-Over Coffee Brew Set
Save 20%: Baristas will argue to the moon and back over pour-over coffee — the best grind size, the best water temperature, the best pouring pattern and other brewing dark arts. But the most consistent argument of them all is that of the brew device itself, a discussion dominated by the Kalita Wave, Chemex and Hario V60. The latter is most-prized by coffee professionals and is very, very cheap today.
The V60 is a cone-shaped brewer with a single hole in the base and grooves running down the inside. It specializes in bringing out the lighter, more floral notes you see on bags of coffee, but there is a small learning curve. Because the water you pour over it runs straight through the bed of beans and into a mug or carafe, any water that lands on the side of the brewer can run right under the filter without touching the grounds, making for a very watery cup. Specialty roaster Intelligentsia has a concise, definitive guide on the subject of V60 brewing. Plus, the V60 is also small enough to fit in a carry-on, unlike its rival Chemex brewer.
Today on Drop, the glass V60 brewer, a carafe to brew into, a scoop and 100 filters is just $16. If you want to try pour-over coffee, this is about as low an investment as you could hope for. — Will Price
Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 60-Liter
Save 30%: If you’ve never heard of Patagonia’s Black Hole duffel bags, you’ve likely spotted one in an airport, foreign train station or strapped to the roof of an overlander. Patagonia built the weather-resistant and sturdy bags to last decades with a rugged TPU-laminated ripstop nylon. They also include removable backpack straps that make carrying one a breeze, even when it’s fully loaded.
The 60-liter version is arguably the most versatile size; it’s big enough to pack everything you’ll need for a weekend or a week, and it still fits into the overhead bins on planes. We’ve put this bag through its paces on all kinds of adventures, from a ski weekend in Vermont to a month-long trip to Ecuador. It’s one of the best rugged duffel bags available, and right now it’s also 30 percent off at Backcountry. — Tanner Bowden
Kryptonite Bike Lock Sale
Save $30:The Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Mini heavy Duty Bicycle lock is under $100 today. Originally $114, you can pick up this steel shackle u-lock for $82 on Amazon. Biking around a city makes life easier, but it’s infinitely more complicated when your bike gets stolen. A hardcore bike lock is a necessity if you ride your bike and leave it outside while you run errands, grab a bite or log hours at the office. This max performance lock has a double deadbolt with a protective vinyl coating and comes with three keys. The hardened steel eliminates bolt cutters as a threat, and the small size helps to keep pros with levers away. Keep one at home, another at the office and the third on your person at all times. Pro tip: Register your five-pound lock as soon as you get it and get a secondary cable to protect your wheels.

Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush
Save $40: Last year, I splurged on a Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean toothbrush. It was the best thing I bought all year.
The Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean is a weighty brush that uses vibration and water movement to shake plaque and other gross substances off your teeth and gums. The electric brush has five power levels — clean, white, sensitive, gum care and deep clean — and charges via conduction in a small glass cup that comes with it.
Beyond that, it’s the electric toothbrush that made me realize the value of electric toothbrushes. Morning and night, every brushing ends in that indescribably smooth post-dentist gum and teeth feel — a feeling nigh impossible to achieve with a manual brush.
Today on Amazon, the $200 Diamond Clean is $160. It’s worth every penny. — Will Price
