Now that the Christmas holidays are over, the shopping commences. Many retailers capitalize on this post-Christmas shopping frenzy, taking advantage of those people in store and online who return the things they were gifted that they didn’t like in favor of the things they want. In fact, shoppers across the United Kingdom (as well as international online stores) populated shopping centers to take advantage of Boxing Day Sales over the post-holiday weekend, reported the Financial Times. Boxing Day is December 26, and although the U.S. doesn’t technically celebrate, we celebrate in our own way with day-after-Christmas sales that continue well into the new year.

To help you navigate this post-holiday shopping frenzy, we’ve picked out 10 of our favorite items that you’re going to love even more thanks to their heavily discounted prices.
