Cyber Monday might be officially over, but many of the best Cyber Monday deals are still lingering, meaning it isn't too late to bag yourself a bargain – for yourself or for your Christmas shopping.

This year's biggest items so far have included the Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds, which are down from £250 to £159 at Amazon (opens in new tab); the LG C2 OLED TV range, which is down to its lowest-ever price at Sevenoaks (opens in new tab); and some bargain over-ear Sony wireless headphones, yours for just £69 at John Lewis (opens in new tab). And guess what? All three – and plenty more – are still live.

These are the very best Cyber Monday deals still on offer...
