Our team of writers has created several roundups of what we think will be the best deals in weather and science gifts this holiday season. As we said earlier, we’ll update these beyond Black Friday as we find more deals. Bookmark this page, and check back every week for updates!

Before You Shop

Before you dive into our deals, make sure you’re an Amazon Prime member! Some holiday deals are Prime Exclusives, so joining now gets you a 30-day free trial which will still be active for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Not sure what to get? Let them pick. Amazon also offers Prime gift memberships for as little as $39. It’s even a good stocking stuffer, too. (We know from personal experience as weather geeks that once you start weather watching, you’ll be buying much more!)

Featured Black Friday Deals

Here are our five current picks for the best deals. Unlike some other product categories, sales on weather gadgets aren’t as frequent (or as good) as in other categories. Thus, we’ve picked our favorites based on being at or near their lowest prices over the past year. Expect to save between 20-30%. This is not to say we won’t uncover better — we’re currently sifting through hundreds if not thousands of products to find some hidden gems!

Note: Prices are delivered automatically through Amazon. In some cases, they don’t provide us with the actual sale price. In that case, we’ve placed the savings in the banner. The savings in the banner reflects the savings as of the last check, and may be outdated. Amazon may change the price at any time.

How to Shop Black Friday 2021

Shopping this Black Friday is undoubtedly going to be different than in previous years. With the supply chain issues most manufacturers are experiencing, we fully expect the great deals to be a lot harder to find than they typically are. As a result, “Black Friday prices” appear much earlier this year, with retailers like Amazon and others hoping that spreading out the sales will help them avoid things running out of stock during Black Friday.

Our recommendation is to start your shopping earlier than Black Friday or Cyber Monday. We’re watching out for early sales on a host of products, and as soon as they appear, we’re updating our guides continuously throughout the holidays with the best sales we can find. But act quickly: the best deals are likely to sell out quickly because there’s not a lot of stock available (and even in a normal year, stock is limited — so it’s just going to be worse).

Will the sales be as good as last year?

This is the question that everyone seems to be asking. While there will still be some outstanding sales, there likely won’t be as many as usual. Of course, we’re still weeks away from Black Friday — so we’ll have to wait and see.
