Christmas is in the rear-view mirror, but there are still sales and deals to be had. The good news is that much of Amazon's best stuff remains on sale through New Year's Eve, so if you've got gift cards at the ready, here are some of your best options that are still discounted. And plenty of other retailers are having solid after-Christmas sales, too.

Update: Check out even better deals here: Get an Echo Dot for $15, a Fire TV Stick 4K for $30 or a Propel Star Wars drone for $40

PlayStation Classic for $60 (save $40)

OK, we didn't love the PlayStation Classic, to put it mildly. And neither did anyone else. But a 40 percent price cut — and noting that it's apparently easy to hack — is a good excuse to reevaluate things.

JBL Clip 3 for $40 (save $20)

One of our favorite travel speakers is currently on sale for a price lower than its Black Friday best. Get the JBL Clip 3 for just $40, down from its usual price of $60 (and its Black Friday price of $50). It's fully waterproof and sounds great, too.

Amazon Echo for $70 (save $30)

Prefer a more robust sound to your smart speaker? Step up to the standard Echo. Like the Dot, you can pair two together for stereo sound — and it's now compatible with Apple Music, in addition to Spotify and most other big subscription services.

Fire HD 8 tablet for $50 (save $30)

Our favorite discount tablet is still marked down by almost 40 percent. That means you get this great 8-inch travel companion for the same price that the 7-inch model usually sells for. Note that the Kids Edition — with cushioned case, two-year replacement warranty and included year of FreeTime Unlimited service — is also available for $50 off.

Roku Streaming Stick Plus for $50 (save $10)

Sarah Tew/CNET

Want to convert an older HDTV to a smart TV? Or do you want to add some apps that your Samsung, LG or Sony TV never seems to have built in? The Roku Streaming Stick Plus has them all (except iTunes), it delivers up to full 4K resolution and it's got power and volume control for your TV on the remote, too. Don't need 4K? The $34 Roku Streaming Stick is otherwise pretty much identical.
