The deals are returning, nature is healing. Or something like that. At any rate, Amazon and other retailers appear to be perking up a bit after a bargain dry spell and there are decent savings surfacing at the moment.
This week we've collated some of the best online bargains we can find. Including the usual booze savings, a brilliant deal on a feature packed watch and a great discount on an e-scooter that we're finding impossible to resist.
Remember that these deals are for products we rate and these deals are the ones that we're genuinely interested in.
Casio G-Shock watch with Bluetooth
Old school style meets new(ish) tech, with the Casio G-Shock Bluetooth watch. It might look like an eighties throwback, but make no mistake, this watch is tough as nails and packed full of features. It’s waterproof, shockproof, water-resistant, runs for about 2 years on a full charge (but has solar power, too) and even offers a phone finder tool via an app. At half price from Argos, we reckon this is the smartest watch you can buy today.Buy now from Argos

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Switch)
For those who have splurged on a Switch to keep you company during lockdown, or own one already, this is the perfect time to get stuck into Link’s Awakening. This remastered is almost a perfect recreation of the classic, so don’t expect many changes, but do expect fantasticaly cute updated graphics and the same old brilliant puzzles. Use code PRICE8 to get it at this price, the cheapest we’ve seen it yet.Buy now on eBay
Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, 50 cl
Irish gin! Yep, it’s a good ‘un too. This bottle has been slow distilled from 11 botanicals, including green tea (called gunpowder tea). It has a spicy nature to it and it’s recommended that you drink it with a pink grapefruit style tonic. The reviews on Amazon for this one are pretty glowing, so with this healthy discount, we think this is definitely worth a punt.Buy now from Amazon
Highland Park Viking Tribe Single Malt Scotch
30% off, in a lockdown? We can't think of anything more tempting right now. This whisky is exclusive to Amazon and has an air of peatiness but there’s not too much smoke as it's mellowed by vanilla and citrus. The interesting thing about this whisky? It's distilled at 46%, a touch harsher than the ‘normal’ 40% whiskies out there. This price is just £2 off the Black Friday deal we saw on this bottle last year.Buy now for amazon
Ninebot Segway ES2 Electric Scooter
There's a good chance you're planning on reducing your use of public transport for the foreseeable, so this electric scooter could be just what you need. To be clear, while e-scooters are widely used on the continent, they aren’t currently allowed on UK roads, but legislation is being reviewed and it’s likely a matter of time before the rules are relaxed and you can zip along without fear of legal consequences. This model has a top speed of 15mph and will get your 2 miles in about 8 minutes.Ninebot Segway ES2 Electric Scooter
Hugo Boss Hugo Man Eau De Toilette
One of those aftershaves that's a must for any bathroom cabinet, this bottle of Hugo Boss is a steal at half price right now. It’s all about sea breezes, the scent of apples and a touch of wood in the way it smells - it’s an everyday aftershave that will almost certainly disguise that ‘I’ve been indoors for seven weeks now’ smell. And goodness me, don't we all need that right now. If Hugo Boss isn't for you, there are a number of other fragrances on sale right now from Paul Smith, Dolce & Gabanna and Tom Ford, all with pretty solid discounts.Buy now from Amazon
Maker's Mark Bourbon Whisky, 1L
When it comes to bourbon, Maker’s Mark is one of our solid favourites. It’s currently sixth in our best Bourbon list and tastes a lot mellower than other bourbons, because it uses wheat instead of rye in the distilling process. This gives it more of a fruity punch that’s countered with wood and caramel notes. £32 for a litre of this stuff is very good indeed - in fact, we are probably going to nab a bottle for ourselves.Buy now from Amazon
toyuugo Air Purifier
Air Purifiers are selling like the proverbial hot-cakes at the moment, for obvious reasons. Staying indoors all the time really makes you aware of the quality of air in your home. That’s why this purifier caught our eye. It’s got very good reviews and is a decent 15% off for a limited time. It’s great for getting rid of pet dander, smoke, and other stinky stuff, and also has a timer function and a sleep mode, so you can leave it running overnight and wake up to a lung full of fresh air.Buy now from Amazon
