Think all the great holiday sales are already over? Think again.

Even though Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, many retailers have continued their sales through the week - including Amazon! Tech gifts are great but for a limited time, save up to 30% on AmazonBasics in a number of other departments, including Home, Kitchen & Dining, Sports & Outdoor and Home Improvement & Automotive.

I've combed through those sections so you don't have to, and picked potential gifts, from practical to fun. Check out the list below for a few ideas on great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers!

Gift ideas for the home

Amazon currently has a number of sales going on in the Home department. Here are some highlights.

AmazonBasics 34-Inch Natural Stone Fire Pit with Copper Accents, $109.99

AmazonBasics 34-Inc Natural Stone Fire Pit with Copper AccentsThis 34- by 24-inch outdoor fire pit might be hard to wrap, but will surely bring out a smile. It's small enough to be portable, but warm enough for those cool nights. Pick one up this week while they're still 20% off!


Bonus: Practical and boring tech gifts people will use time and time again

AmazonBasics Zero Gravity Chair - Beige, $31.49

AmazonBasics Zero Gravity Chair - Beige

Great on its own or as a bonus gift to go with the fire pit, the zero-gravity outdoor chair is made for relaxation with a weightless feel. You can snag the beige variety of the chair for 30% off regular price, but prices on other colors vary.


Stocking stuffers for the home

Although some gifts can be considered stocking stuffers in spirit, they might be a little too big to actually fit in the stocking. Keeping that in mind, check out these ideas:

AmazonBasics Micromink Sherpa Blanket - Smoke Blue, $18.69

It's warm. It's reversible. It's interchangeable as a bedspread or throw, and good for all seasons. Who wouldn't want such a versatile present? The smoke blue variety of this Micromink Sherpa blanket is 15% off. It also comes in eight other colors, although prices vary.

Home improvement & automotive gift ideas

Admittedly, the following ideas from the Home Improvement & Automotive department are probably going to be the most practical of the bunch. Although you might need a replacement refrigerator water filter, I'm going to guess you still wouldn't be too excited to open it on Christmas. But there are quite a few useful items.

AmazonBasics Biometric Fingerprint Safe, $69.99

Amazon Biometric Fingerprint Safe

Let me start by saying this is a great deal because it's very difficult to find a biometric safe under the $100 mark (what this one usually retails for). This steel 0.5-cubic-foot safe is opened with your fingerprint and is a great solution for storing documents and some of your smaller valuables. During Cyber Monday Deals Week, order this safe for 30% off normal price.


AmazonBasics Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2-inch Receivers, $85.39

AmazonBasics Hitch Cargo Carrier

If you know someone who loves to travel but lacks some interior vehicle space, this might just be the gift. This hitch-mounted cargo carrier is ideal for camping, road-tripping and even tailgating. It's 30% off, but keep in mind - the cargo carrier bag is sold separately.


Some useful stocking stuffers from Home Improvement & Automotive

Check out some of these useful and inexpensive products to keep around the house.

AmazonBasics Magnetic Wristband, $5.96

AmazonBasics Magnetic Wristband

I can't tell you how many drill bits and screwdriver bits I've lost over the years, only to accidentally rediscover them much later with my bare feet. This handy wristband will hold those, along with nails, bolts and screws while you're working around the house - and it's nearly half price right now.


AmazonBasics Smartphone Repair Kit, $7.58

Amazon smartphone repair kit

Maybe you know someone who likes to tinker with old phones. Or maybe they just like to void warranties. Either way, this set will not only work for smartphones, but also other mobile devices, game systems, wristwatches and eyeglasses. It even comes in a convenient zip-up case and is over 30% off during Amazon's Cyber Monday Deals Week.


And about those stocking stuffers ...

As I mentioned, some of these stocking stuffers listed here won't exactly fit into a regular stocking. But if you're serious about making sure they're presented that way, Amazon's got you covered for that, too. You can thank me later.
