My Black Friday Deals (sort of a gift guide too!) this year are mostly housewares since we are moving into our new home sometime in January (fingers crossed!). It was suppose to be November, then December and now January. Anyone out there who has built a home, gets it. It is super stressful and I complain to my friends and family ALL THE TIME about it. Luckily they have all been very supportive and they are great at offering encouraging words and advice.
So that little tangent was just to explain why most of the stuff you’ll see on here is for the home. We have gotten rid of a ton housewares that we’ve had since we got married and avoided buying things that we need because we just kept saying “we’ll get it when we move”. Allen and I agree that Black Friday is the time to shop for things. Even some of the vendors we’ve using for house things have agreed and said… “Look for Black Friday deals”.
(1) Instant Pot
I have wanted to try one of these for while after seeing some many great recipes that can be done in record time using an Instant Pot. I hadn’t bought one before because honestly I didn’t need one more kitchen item to have move when the house is ready. But I’m not sure a can hold out much longer. Everyone I know who has one loves it and says it makes life so much easier. Who doesn’t need that? Regular Price is $99.95 but during the Black Friday Sale it will be $69.65 AND you’ll get a $10 Target gift card.
-Great Gift Idea for the person that has to cook but doesn’t really enjoy it or have the time.
(2) Weighted Blanket
I have been reading a lot about these and how they are good for all children especially ADHD and kids with anxiety. The normal price is $69.99 and it’ll be $50 starting Thursday night/ Friday.
-Great Gift Idea for kids of all ages
(3) Kitchen Aid Professional Stand Mixer
I have a regular Kitchen Aid mixer that I have had since we got married but I think it might be time for an upgrade. It’ll be over $219.99 and that’s over 50% off the regular price. Another great thing… it comes in a variety of colors. I think it will look great in our new kitchen.
-Great Gift for the baker in your life.
(4) Cordless Vacuum
2 of the cordless vacuums that I see talked about the most are going to be on sale. I, myself, haven’t decided which one I want yet. There are pros and cons for each. Regular price for the Shark is $299.99 but Black Friday it’ll be $149.99 (50% OFF).
-Great Gift for ANYONE
The Dyson is also regularly $299.99 and it will be on sale for $189.99 so you’ll save over $100 on this one.
(5) Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven
Allen and I received one of these as a wedding gift from a family member and it has been one of the most used pieces over the past 17 years. I use it at least once a week and in the fall and winter (aka soup season) I use it 2-3 times per week. It comes in a variety of colors although I’m partial to the white one, like our other one. This one is on sale for $129.96 but is usually priced right around $250. For that price you could get 2, one for you and one for a Christmas or wedding gift.
-Great Gift for a foodie or family chef.
(6) Oval Bakers
These oval ceramic casserole dishes are a must have for anyone around the holidays. First of all, there are 2 of them so at this great price you are basically getting one for free. If you saw my Holiday Sides post these would work for The Kicked-up Green Bean Casserole and the Sweet Potato Casserole. Any of your family favorite casserole would cook beautifully in these. Another plus is that handles that make these bakers portable and easy to take to someone else’s home. Also, I love the white but they come in black, red and blue too. These bakers run around $84.95 but are only $49.95.
-Great gift for newlyweds
(7) Fun Glasses
Glasses are sort of like coats to me. I don’t use them all the time but it’s one of my favorite things to buy. I have a ton of them but I’ll keep getting more when I find pretty ones. Anthropologie always has so many fun glasses. It was hard to choose my absolute favorite, so here’s a few that I wouldn’t mind displaying in my butler’s pantry. I can just envision a festive Pomegranate Gin Fizz in these. These will all be 30% off on Black Friday.
-Great Gift for the glam ladies in your life
(8) T & T Breadboard
The Twine & Twig breadboard are the perfect boards for your holiday entertaining. Anyone can build an amazing cheeseboard on these beautiful curated pieces. Last year they were my most used piece of serve ware in my kitchen. And now they come in 2 colors! If a cheese board isn’t your thing, you could cover it with different kids of breads and biscuits and add small bowls of jellies, jams, butters and spreads. I think doing all different kinds of sweet treats (cookies, candies, fruits etc) for the kids would be a hit at your next family gathering. Their sale is 30% off everything!
-Great Gift for anyone who loves to entertain at home.
(9) Faux Fur Throw Blanket
Have you ever said anyone say that they had too many throws or blankets? Probably not if you are anything like me and my family. There are 5 of us and we fight over the same 2 or 3 of the softest ones we have. It comes in 7 different colors and it sure to be everyone’s favorite! The reviews are all amazing and that many people can’t be wrong. I, personally, think it would be a great gift for your sister, bestie or mother-in-law. It would also be an easy secret Santa or White Elephant Gift because EVERYONE would love it. No re-gifting here! They are usually $98 but for Black Friday they will 30% off.
-Great Gift for ANYONE
(10) Nest Video Doorbell
I have wanted one of these for years! Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you were upstairs, in your bathroom, tending to your kids or resting and the doorbell rings and you could see who it was before you sprinted to the door only to find a salesperson? This allows you to check your door on your phone. Game- changer, right? This one will be only $179 for Black Friday instead of $230.
-Great Gift for new moms, busy moms, people who live alone
