You've survived Thanksgiving with your relatives, plundered Black Friday sales, and no one would blame you if you took a breather through the weekend. But don't rest too long – today is Cyber Monday and many of those sales and deals are live right now.

Our list of top Cyber Monday deals is heavily skewed towards tech, but we also tend to see some of the best deals of the year on apparel for women and menfurniture and home goodstravel and so much more.

P.S. If you did your Black Friday shopping at Kohl's last week, Cyber Monday week will deliver additional savings when you spend your Kohl's Cash.

HP 15t Touchscreen Laptop

Price: $499.99 (was $1,099.99)
Where: HP

HP's Cyber Monday sale is one of our favorites, and it's hard to argue with a touchscreen laptop that's sporting a discount that's better than 50% off. This model features 8 GB memory, a 1TB hard drive, 15.6" HD display, and comes in five colors.

Google Home

Price: $74.25 with Visa Checkout (was $129)
Where: Best Buy

Most Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers on Google Home mark this digital assistant down to $99.99, but you can grab yours for $74.25 at Best Buy when you use Visa Checkout to pay. Worth noting: Most tech reviews rate Google Home as smarter than Amazon Echo.

Swagtron T1/T3 Hoverboard

Price: from $349.99
Where: Target
Bonus: $100 Target Gift Card

Hoverboards continue to gain popularity this year, and the inclusion of a $100 Target gift card means that you're really only paying a net of $249.99.

Xbox One S 500GB Bundle + Your Choice of Blu-ray Movie

Price: $249
Where: Walmart
Bonus: $20 Walmart Gift Card

This deal from Walmart basically allows you to build your own Xbox One S bundle. Choose your Xbox bundle (Battlefield 1 Special Edition, Battlefield 1, or Minecraft), choose your movie (Deadpool, X-Men Apocalypse, Independence Day Resurgence, or Fantastic 4), and Walmart throws in a $20 gift card just because. The movies are listed at $19.96 right now, so it's basically a standard Black Friday gaming bundle with an extra $40 in freebies thrown in.

Fitbit Flex 2

Price: $59.46 (was $99.95)
Where: Amazon

Buy any model Fitbit as a Christmas gift and it shows up under the tree just in time for the inevitable New Years resolution to get back into shape. Amazon currently has the best price on the Fitbit Flex 2, just $7 above the all time lowest price we've ever seen.

Women's Boots

Price: Buy 1 Get 1 Free
Where: Macy's

Select women's boots get the BOGO treatment at Macy's for Black Friday. Time to stock up!

Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot

Price: $139.99 for Echo (was $179.99), or $39.99 for Echo Dot (was $49.99)
Where: B&H Photo

These Alexa-enabled digital assistants made our Black Friday list as well. We noted above that Google Home is generally smarter than Alexa, but Alexa has a larger list of skills and access to Amazon's vast music library.

Meccano Meccanoid G15 Personal Robot Building Set

Price: $79.99 (was $139.99)
Where: Toys R Us

Tech toys are always a hot pick. Toys R Us has the best Cyber Monday deal on the popular Meccano Meccanoid G15, which lets kids build their own robot.

15% off Sitewide at Target

Throughout Cyber Week, Southwest Vacation offers discounts ranging from $50 up to $250 on vacation packages, the best deal they offer all year long.

Microsoft Surface Book 256GB

Price: $1,499 (was $1,899)

Last year's model Surface Book is discounted $400 for Cyber Monday. For context on how good of a deal that is, the next best deal we've ever posted on any Surface Book was a $200 discount.

Beats by Dre Beats EP Headphones

Price: $99.99 (was $129.99)
Where: Best Buy

A $30 discount on these corded entry-level Beats headphones brings this popular brand under $100, making them a great budget option. Bonus: With corded headphones, you never need to worry about battery life.
