Usually a pretty hefty investment, these sleek buds from Apple are reduced to £185, courtesy of John Lewis’s pre-Black Friday sale. In our Apple AirPods pro review, our tester was impressed with their level of comfort and noise cancellation, calling them “a high-end pair of earphones that are difficult to find much fault in”.

The only thing hotter than coffee right now is this deluxe appliance. With almost £180 off and Nespresso products selling out fast at John Lewis & Partners, now could be the best time to invest in the cafe-quality coffee machine. Sage claims it can whip up two cappuccinos in 65 seconds, while the fully-automated steam wand means you can perfect your latte art at home. In our review of another Nespresso machine, our tester loved how quiet it was. Since this machine is a quiet mark-awarded product, we think it’ll be just as good. Another thing we love about Nespresso machines is how easy to use they are – and this one is no exception. Adjusting the coffee volume, milk texture or temperature seems like a simple task with the creatista pro.
