The Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is packed with deals and discounts in just about every category, but tech, home, and gifts are definitely dominating the site for the next two days. If you're just dipping your toes in and want to browse, start here. If you're looking for a bit of everything, this is still a great place to peruse your options.

Want to totally spoil someone for under 20 bucks? Easy. This bundle includes both a pair of fully adjustable smart bulbs and a tiny device to voice control them to ideal brightness and color. If there's an easy, no-brainer gift out there for the burgeoning smart home enthusiast, it's this.

For the tech-savvy minimalist to the aesthetic futurist, this combination alarm clock, touch light, and wireless charging station is a beautifully elegant tech pick. Not only does the light feature three brightness settings, you can set it to turn on just before the alarm goes off for a visual wake-up as well as an auditory one.

This year, these work-from-home must-haves will go flying. An under desk treadmill might seem like a splurge, but with how much time we all spend at home these days, it's both an investment in your fitness and an excuse to finally cancel that rarely used gym membership.

If there is a kid-friendly gift you should absolutely never overlook, it's a LEGO set. This assortment of bricks is particularly fun for young builders who love starting from scratch, but there are tons of sets on sale right now, so be sure to grab them while prices are low!

How adorable is this sweet little camera? For the future YouTuber in your life, this easy to handle and even easier to shoot Creator Cam supports fun features like animated backgrounds and time-lapse videos. Endless hours of creative entertainment for less than $50? Yes, please.

Quick, compact, and way too cute, the K-Mini Keurig suits practially any room - though its especially great to keep in home offices when cup number one grows cold. We love these as gifts for college students moving into their first dorm room or space-saving, caffeine-generating solutions for small kitchens.

Whether for kids, teens, or adults, a good portable device has become almost essential in a work-from-home world. This useful, handheld laptop-meets-tablet Chromebook checks every box while still remaining super affordable. Pro tip: the Acer Spin is an excellent pick for students!

When any Amazon device drops to anywhere below $30, our ears perk up. The Fire Stick 4K easily transforms any standard television into a smart TV, making this an incredibly clever contribution to a white elephant or Secret Santa gift exchange.

We love a good Kindle, and it's original intended purpose was for reading. Well, Amazon's keen love of books has only grown, and its devices have only gotten more brilliant. The Paperwhite avoids all of that headache-inducing blue light and uses an auto-adjusting display to read just like real paper.

JBL offers up an array of great Bluetooth headphones, but this pair gets special attention. Aside from its many thousand exceptional reviews, the Tune 125TWS earbuds boast an uber-quick charging time of just 15 minutes and wear-all-day comfort along with Dual Connect, a marvelous feature that allows you to use either or both buds for music, phone calls, or both at any given time!

For the latte lover who isn't up for shelling out for a full-scale espresso machine, a stovetop moka pot is a truly indispensable addition to the kitchen. Make a full pot for after-dinner cappuccinos to share or a smaller amount for your morning shot of caffeine.

Ahh, the joys of not having to vacuum yourself. So relaxing. So clean. An iRobot Roomba travels from room to room, keeping your floors dust-free at all times, and it learns over time to avoid obstacles like furniture. We particularly love this pick for pet owners constantly dealing with fur and dander!

An air purifier makes a world of difference for anyone with allergies or households with lots of dander and dust. Place this uber helpful machine in common areas like a living room or a den to effectively filter out germ-carrying particles in the air - a great find for the colder months when folks start catching colds.

The moment you learn to make your own pizza is like a sacred experience, and a great pizza stone is crucial. Keep one for yourself as you learn or gift one to a culinary-inclined friend who already has just about everything else!

Real talk: it's time to get yourself a matching set of towels. Random one-off washcloths come in handy and all, but wouldn't you love to have a full set of the same color for a change? It makes everything feel so much more polished and decorated, and these ones are soooooo very soft.

Less than $100 for one of these beauties? Seriously? Grab one (or a few) while you can! A good massage gun is perfect for the fitness enthusiast in your life.
