Consumer Reports gives these gift ideas the stamp of approval for your holiday shopping lists.

Some of the best gifts for the people on your holiday shopping list are on deep discount in December.

Here are the five things you'll want to buy right now:

Headphones

Over the ear, in the ear or wireless, there are so many options for listening to your media. The Consumer Reports pick is 1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones (Earphones/Earbuds) which are selling for $89 on Amazon right now.

Wireless Speakers

Giving loved ones the ability to hear their music on the go makes wireless speakers a must-have item for a lot of people. Many of the options can really break the bank, but there are some budget-friendly options. This year's pick is the Altec Lansing Mini H20. You can cross this off your shopping list for just $40.
Fitness Trackers

You can't hit the road without being able to track your steps, distance and heart rate. Consumer Reports gives the Garmin Forerunner 35 high marks for excellent real-time heart rate monitoring and steps.
Smart Watches

Smart watches offer similar features like fitness trackers, but some models can perform many advanced tasks without being paired to a nearby phone. The Apple Watch Series 1 sells for around $250 and is rated the best budget-friendly option.

Cordless Drills

Do you have a do-it-yourselfer on your list? Cordless drills are always a great gift. The Black and Decker GCO is a great pick. It sells for around $35.
