We’re approaching President’s Day in the US, and while it was originally established as a holiday to celebrate the birthday of George Washington, the passage of time has transformed it into a day when we distract ourselves from the foibles of our democratically elected leadership by treating ourselves to some of the best deals of the yea.

Whether you’re planning to get a little something for yourself or shopping for someone else, there are plenty of great promotions and sales to take advantage of this weekend. Many products — including the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, LG’s C1 OLED, and Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini — are currently matching their lowest prices ever, while others are just shy of it.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best President’s Day deals we could find. More promotions and sales are sure to pop up between now and the actual holiday, too, so check back here and subscribe to the Verge Deals newsletter for all the highlights later this week.
