Hold on to your socks because our collection of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday gadget deals will probably blow them clean off:

*Don’t forget, you can cover your precious gadgets in under two minutes online with Protect Your Bubble. We're an award-winning insurance provider! 🏆😃👍

Game consoles

The Nintendo Switch will be in super-high demand this festive season. If you head on over to Amazon, you can find this versatile console going for £249 (and you can download Fortnight for free, so it’s *technically* a bundle).

If you’re a Microsoft devotee, ShopTo is offering the Xbox One S 1TB with the latest first-person-shooter ‘Battlefield 5’ for £179.86.

If you’re looking for a PS4 bundle, check out Currys. They’re doing a 500GB console with cowboy-epic Red Dead Redemption 2 for £219.99. Yee-haw.

Android Phones

Fonehouse.co.uk is offering the Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB for a double-take-inducing £499.00. THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE STEAL. AND I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING, I’M JUST SO EXCITED ABOUT THE BARGAINS.

After something slightly more wallet/purse-friendly? The OnePlus 6 was recently dubbed the ‘Flagship killer’ due to its agreeable price-tag and great performance compared to other leading handsets (TL;DR: it’s the Jamie Lannister of smartphones).

OnePlus has knocked £70 off the total price (down from £469 to £399), which, by all accounts, is pretty decent of them. They're also doing a bunch of bundle deals for the new Oneplus 6T today (check out their homepage for more details).

Apple Phones

It's rare to see a substantial price-dip for recent-gen iPhones, so the John Lewis deal for a Sim Free iPhone X 64GB (down from £899 to £779) looks pretty appealing right about now.

If you’re looking for a more affordable Apple handset, Mobiles.co.uk is offering the iPhone 8 64GB for £589 (down from £739). Tidy.

Macbooks

If you’ve been waiting patiently for the opportunity to upgrade to a Macbook, NOW IS THE TIME TO STRIKE MY CALCULATING FRIEND.

There's a wide range of MacBooks available, so have a shop around - but on Laptops Direct, the Apple MacBook Pro Core i7 is down from £2289.97 to £1699.97. Huge saving!

Also check out John Lewis for their Apple Macbook Pro Core i5 offer – down from £1799 to £1599.

Apple Watch

Very.co.uk had a great deal for the Apple Watch Series 3 live yesterday (down to £199 with a code). Unfortunately that deal isn't available anymore. 😔

Do not dismay: John Lewis is now offering a similar discount (down from £279 to £219). Not quite as tasty, but still a big reduction. 😃
