Halloween has come and gone, and it seems like overnight the holiday season is upon us. With the biggest gift-giving season less than two months away, it’s never too early to be looking for gifts and shopping for deals.

If you’re looking for gifts for the hard-to-buy-for, the tech-savvy, or the one-who-has-everything, or even looking to flesh out your want list, then head over to TNW Deals and take a look at the awesome deals available.

There are quite a few deals on the site, but I went looking through the site myself and found some pretty awesome deals on gifts that are sure to make your friends or family happy.

Striker Spy HD-Camera Drone


Know of a friend or family member that doesn’t have a drone, but have been drooling over them online? Here’s a great deal that will be sure to turn their drool from ‘want’ to ‘OMG.’

The Striker Spy Drone comes with a built-in HD camera capable of filming for up to 30 minutes or take up to 50,000 photos from way up in the sky. It’s light but hardly plastic shell encases an internal gyro that helps ensure the smoothest flight no matter what tricks you throw at it.

If you have a friend or family member that is really into photography, video, or simply just wants to fly a really cool-looking drone around, the Striker Spy HD-Camera Drone is a great option.

Holi SmartLamp


For the person who has everything, I bet they don’t have this. The Holi SmartLamp makes a great gift for someone who seems to have everything and you just aren’t sure what they want.

With the Holi SmartLamp, you can set the mood however you would like. It’s capable of producing millions of color combinations at a brightness of 500 lumens. Set it to help you sleep at night with sunrises and sunsets or sync it up with music via Bluetooth to create an awesome light show.
