When it comes to holiday shopping, Black Friday the day we all eagerly await... even if we're skipping the craziness in stores and just shopping online. It's a great chance to save on items that you would otherwise splurge on any other time of the year.
Looking for some ideas for what to buy next week? I have a few suggestions. Check out my Black Friday picks below:
1. Haute Headphones
If you're in the mood to splurge on a special someone (or yourself), you can use these stylish over-the-ear headphones for music or to simply talk on the phone. And when you're out and about you can easily collapse them into your clutch.
I love these headphones because they stay comfortable even when you have earrings on and they're customizable - you can change the oil slick caps to match any mood or outfit.
If you're loving this must-have gold, leather and rainbow accented design or simply want to gift it to a friend, wait until Black Friday. FRENDS will host an amazing sale from November 19 through the 25th with 25% off their collections along with free overnight shipping for all U.S. orders! Also sign up to the FRENDS mailing list to catch their surprise one-hour flash sale every day with 40% off one item at a time.
2. Printed Planners
Know someone who loves to stay organized? Help them keep their social schedule in order and in style with this fabulous agenda. (See our post on why we love Lilly agendas for more reasons to buy this!) I adore the elephant print on this one.
Lilly Pulitzer has some great Black Friday deals going on, if you want to pick up this agenda and more. From November 26 through November 30, they will offer a selection of gifts with purchase. You can receive a tote with any order. Score a bracelet and a tote when you spend $75. They've got a triple treat when you spend $250 - you'll get a travel journal, bracelet, and tote. Top it all off with a travel cosmetics case if you spend $500.
3. Designer Bags
Black Friday is an amazing time to score a designer bag for less. Give the gift of chic style with a Michael Kors Fulton crossbody bag imprinted with the signature MK logo. Grab the bag from Macy's and add a luxe accent to any ensemble for a great price.
Besides hosting the nationally acclaimed Thanksgiving Day Parade, Macy's is also the queen of sales especially on Black Friday. From Thursday, November 26 through Saturday, November 28, Macy's will be offering some amazing doorbusters. My favorite? Macy's is offering an extra 25% off clearance designer handbags. We all like to splurge sometimes, so why not save a little while you splurge? You can also find select boots for only $19.99!
4. Stylish Sneakers
Do you know a sporty someone that loves to take morning jogs by the river? Give them the gift of this style statement. These classic running shoes are super stylish thanks to their suede texture and maroon color. Not loving this shade? They come in all colors, shapes and sizes, perfect for a casual, relaxed, or semi-dressy day.
You might want to run to New Balance's Black Friday sale because from November 26 through November 29, you can save on all your sporty must-haves from bags to jackets and hoodies to sports bras. But if you're planning to splurge on these sneakers, New Balance will be offering 15% off your order along with free shipping! You know what's better? Select items will be 20% off.
