It can be incredibly expensive (and wasteful) replacing toner cartridges in your existing inkjet printer. With this $230 Canon Pixma MegaTank G7030 all-in-one printer, you can say goodbye to costly toner cartridges forever, without sacrificing print quality.

This all-in-one printer is able to print, photocopy, scan and fax. It prints at up to 13ppm (black) or 6.8ppm (color). The very best thing about the printer is that it relies on large ink tanks -- not cartridges. One set of ink bottles will cost you less than a typical set of toner cartridges, yet provide enough ink to last your household for up to two years.

The front-facing paper tray has a 350-sheet capacity.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch: $49 ($11 off)

5723304-sd.jpg
Best Buy

"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" is the perfect multi-player game that kids, teens and adults alike can enjoy together on a Nintendo Switch. It features 42 of the most popular characters from various Nintendo game franchises and places them in the driver's seat of go-karts that can whizz around 48 different courses. Each course is filled with colorful obstacles and non-stop fun.

Players can choose their character, customize their go-kart and then upgrade it as they win races. The trick, however, is not just to reach the finish line. Racers need to find and collect power-ups (there are 23 different types) to help them thwart the competition.

"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" can be played with up to four gamers on one Nintendo Switch (each player uses a separate controller), or it can be played online with up to 12 players via Nintendo Switch Online.

While we think this is one of the very best multiplayer Nintendo Switch games ever released, we're also huge fans of the newly released "Super Mario Bros. Wonder" ($60) game, a one-player, side-scrolling adventure suitable for gamers of all ages. It too is the perfect holiday gift for any Nintendo Switch gamer. If you're not convinced, be sure to check out our in-depth review.

Nanoleaf app panels can easily be programmed to display stagnant or animated lighting patterns that you design or select from the app. All Nanoleaf smart lighting products work together and be controlled from the same app.

Bose QuietComfort Ultra: $249 (Save $50)

Best Buy

Out of all the noise cancelling earbuds and headphones we've tested recently, one of our top picks are the Bose QuietComfort Ultra wireless earbuds. These are the newest generation from Bose, following in the footsteps of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II (which are also on sale at Best Buy for just $199, which is $100 off their regular price).

The redesigned QuietComfort Ultra earbuds are sleeker and lighter than their predecessors, offer up to a six hour battery life per charge and come with a wireless charging case (that with multiple in case charges, extends battery life up to 18 hours). These earbuds support Bluetooth 5.3 and offer multipoint connectivity. They're also water resistant.

What really set these earbuds apart, however, is the noise cancelling technology built into them and the quality of the audio they're able to generate. This is what Bose is really good at and the company has done an excellent job incorporating these technologies into its latest earbuds.

These earbuds sound great when listening to music, but they also make hands-free wireless calls sound crystal clear, even if you're outside or in a noisy environment. Especially now that they're on sale for $50 off (bringing their price down to just $249), the Bose QuietComfort Ultra earbuds make a great gift. And they work well regardless of which mobile device or computer they're paired with.
