Amazon shoppers know that Prime Day is the closest thing to Black Friday that summer has to offer, and with sales running from July 11-12, the biggest name in e-commerce is offering two days of epic deals.

The following is a look at 10 of the hottest Prime Day discounts for yourself or people on your gift list for under $25, with sale prices bringing many of them to less than $20.

When you think of Prime Day, you probably think of stuff — but some of the biggest discounts are on things that don’t need to be shipped.

Amazon is also offering a selection of movies and series to rent or buy at a discount.
