Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Socks for Animals
No, these aren’t kitten mittens. It’s a sock subscription service with patterns of different (threatened) animals each month, with 10% of the profits going toward  research on saving that specific creature (that’s the “for” part). Narwhals, polar bears, macaws, etc. They’re fun, cute and subscriptions range from $14-$48 (or $2-$16 off the regular price).

Google WiFi System
This set of three “router replacements” will cover 4,500 square-feet of your home with high-speed wifi, and the whole system takes only a few minutes to set up. Plus, the devices have a clean, minimalist look. Currently $249 ($50 off), their lowest price ever.

Sennheiser Headphones
A great day for wireless noise-canceling headsets … Anker’s Soundcore unit is now under $100 and Sennheiser’s slightly elevated pair is just $130, or 35% off (also its lowest price ever).

Sales of note:

  • J.Crew: Take an extra 48% off a curated selection with the code 48HOURS. Ends today.
  • Live Nation: The limited-edition “Lawn Pass” will get you one lawn ticket to every concert at your selected venue (even sold-out ones) for $99-$399 per year. Sale ends Dec. 18.
