Why do I need this list?

The very best and very trickiest part about Amazon Prime Day deals is that there are so many people shopping for the same thing! Things do sell out because the prices are that good. We rounded up all the items that we think pose the very highest sell out risk that will give you the most FOMO if they were on your shopping list. These are the top 12 things we're seeing so far that you should buy very first before they have a chance to sell out!

  1. Pebble Ice Machine 
  2. Air Fryer
  3. Instant Pot
  4. Apple Watch
  5. Apple Airpods
  6. Dyson Cordless Vacuum + MOOSOO Cordless Vacuum
  7. Frame TV
  8. Maxi Cosi Car Seat
  9. Ray-Ban Aviators
  10. Revlon Hair Brush
  11. Braun Electric Shaver
  12. Kindle

Not an Amazon Prime Member?

Amazon Prime Day deals are only available to Amazon Prime Members, but don't worry! If you haven't joined myself and a bazillion other people who are addicted to Amazon Prime, you can try it free for 30 days! Also, if you happen to be a business owner, you can get an Amazon business account here!

Pebble ice maker

I’m absolutely, completely, totally OBSESSED and in love with my nugget ice maker and it's definitely one you'll want to make sure you grab first today! This is not the exact version I have, but it's just as good and worth the money. With a sale price of $466.65 (reg $549) and the nation-wide obsession of pebble ice, it's sure to sell out super quick!

It's a bit of an investment yes, but ALL of the other built-in models nugget ice makers that I've ever looked into buying were literally thousands of dollars, not in the hundreds. Our nugget ice maker is not only MY favorite, but Neil's and both girls and neighbors and friends who drop by for a cup of nugget ice. Best purchase ever!! I've blogged about it in my last kitchen reveala gift guide and my third trimester pregnancy favorites.

Plus this one comes with a filter – something I WISH ours had! ALSO, the most FAQ I get about our pebble ice maker is if we've had any problems with it. We've had ours for more than 3 years and not a single problem. I'm currently chewing on some ice from it and it works just as perfectly as the day we got it!

Air Fryer

We've recently tried an Air Fryer and have been SO impressed! Honestly, we kinda thought Air Fryers were pointless before trying one. Like, do we really need ANOTHER appliance that takes up space in the kitchen? One word: YES! This thing reheats, crunchifies, melts, bakes and (duh) air fries! It's pretty much amazing and we don't want to cook without it anymore!

The best part? You can get our favorite Air Fryer today for ONLY $89.99 (reg $129.99)! Such an amazing deal and totally one that will sell out quick! Can you say Thanksgiving leftovers?

Instant Pot

If you don't already own an Instant Pot, it's a pressure cooker! So you can make crockpot type dishes but in a fraction of the time! Think an 8-hour slow cooker recipe in 35 minutes instead. Perfected mashed potatoes in 20 minutes. Chicken breasts from frozen to perfection in 12 minutes. I use my instant pot seriously at least 2-3 times a week now. It also works as a rice cooker, steamer, you can make soup or sauté meats, seriously this thing does it all! Every single one of my friends who have bought the Instant Pot has come to me after and said, “why did I wait so long?!”

You can get the Instant Pot today for Amazon Prime Day for 21% OFF! That's a $20.95 savings! These usually sell out fast, so grab one (or two!), to help you combat all of that holiday cooking that's coming up!

Apple Watch

Tons of people ask what the advantage is to having an Apple watch if you already have an iPhone. This is a super valid question, but it's kind of like that old apples and oranges argument. Both are fruit, but totally different! You can answer phone calls, track your steps, upload music, plus I LOVE the convenience of it on my wrist. No more digging for your phone in your purse!! For more reasons why I love my Apple watch, take a look at this post!

Apple watches are super popular to gift, which is why I think these will go FAST! Grab this for 15% off and save $30 during Amazon Prime Day!

Apple Airpods

There's a reason I've included Airpods in multiple gift guides, because you basically can't go wrong with buying a pair for someone or for yourself. Apple Airpods are a must for me! If I have downtime waiting for an appointment or getting my nails done, I like to pop these in and listen to podcasts, church talks, or audiobooks. You really can't beat the crisp sound!

SO excited that you can snag these today for ONLY $149.98, a whopping $49 savings!!! Airpods are super hard to find a deal on, so this is a steal! You can also grab the wired one for 28% off or the Apple Airpods pro for 20% off!

Sidenote: I also really love these silicone cases to easily differentiate between mine and Neil's Airpods.

Dyson Cordless Vacuum

This Dyson Cordless vacuum is the EASIEST and most convenient thing in my house. You can carry it everywhere, and it makes vacuuming a cinch. I know the reservation with cord-free vacuums is the power; will it work as well as my traditional vacuum? The answer is a resounding YES!! I am so impressed with how powerful this lightweight vacuum is.

The cleaning head is designed for all surfaces, it converts to handheld AND boasts a HEPA filtration system. And perhaps the best thing about it? The current Amazon Prime Day price! You can get this Dyson vacuum for ONLY $269.98 today (orig $329.99)!!!

Also I still think THIS deal that we featured a few days ago is an incredible savings – $499 for a $730 vacuum (the nicest stick vacuum that Dyson makes!).

This MOOSOO vacuum is seriously the greatest dupe on the market for the Dyson vacuum. And it's a fraction of the price! In researching this totally amazing and under the radar vacuum, I discovered that it has earned thousands and thousands of really amazing, super positive four and five-star reviews. People really love this vacuum and after giving it a whirl, I do too!

If you aren't quite ready to take the plunge on the Dyson, THIS is the next best choice! For only $111.99 (orig $179.99) during Amazon Prime Day, it's a no-brainer!

Frame TV

These frame TVs are wildly popular because you can display art when you’re not using the TV! I’ve been dying to get one for a couple years now and this is the best deal I’ve EVER seen on them.

Maxi Cosi Pria

AH! So excited to see this Maxi Cosi Pria car seat on sale again this year! We're obsessed with the Maxi Cosi Pria 85 because of these reasons:
– It's super plush and easy for kiddos to fall asleep in
– The cover is completely removable and machine washable AND dryable, such a lifesaver for accidents and spills!
– It's super high weight limit (85 lbs) forward-facing
– It's the best car seat on the market for the person sitting IN FRONT of a rear-facing car seat, it offers the front-seat passenger the most legroom of any convertible car seat on the market
– It has a cup holder

This car seat will definitely go fast at just $188.99 orig $269.99), so buy this first so you don't miss out!

Ray-Ban Aviators

The ultimate classic in sunglasses is a Ray-Ban aviator, am I right?! They'll just never go out of style! I really, really love these sunnies because they’re so lightweight, and you can wear them all day without getting a headache. These are one of my favorite closet staples, because you can wear them with your dressiest outfits or running errands in yoga pants and a tee!

These are usually really hard to find on sale + in stock for long, so grab these soon while they are ONLY $163.20 (orig $204.00) for Amazon Prime Day!

Revlon Hair Brush

I LOVE this Revlon hair tool. I am not even exaggerating, this Revlon hair tool gives me the same type of blowout that I've ONLY been able to get from a professional in the past. Round brush blow-outs have been a total bust for me every time I've tried them myself! It seems like they require at least three hands, and in addition to not having three hands I also don't possess the coordination required for said blow-out! This tool makes it SO INSANELY EASY because it dries and straightens my hair in one simple step.

This miracle tool is only $41.99 right now (reg $59.99) and is truly the best money I've spent! That's WAY less money than one single salon blowout here in CA!

Braun Electric Razor

A ton of women always ask me to find a deal on the best men's electric shaver, or even just recommend the best one out there! Neil has used a million different shavers and these Braun shavers are hands down his very VERY favorite. And I love them because they are the only shavers that don't leave a million little tiny hairs all over the bathroom sink.

I'm so excited because these Braun Electric Razors are on sale for up to 53% off today for Amazon Prime Day! Please please don't miss this if you have a man on your list who wants or needs a new electric shaver!

I am a HUGE fan of Kindles, especially the Kindle Paperwhite! I'm obsessed with how easy it is to pack and take everywhere, but I'm ever more obsessed with how easy it is to read! It seriously reads just like a book. It's sooooo easy to see the text on the screen and you can see the screen clearly in the dark or in the bright sun! Did I mention how great it is to have all your books in one tiny tablet? And a single battery charge lasts WEEKS! This new waterproof version is so awesome! Read at the beach or by the pool stress-free.

Get this Kindle on sale today for just $79.99 (orig $129.99)! Such a great deal and the perfect gift for the bookworms in your life!
