From a 17-piece knife set, to a still-in-stock laptop, to cozy loungewear (his and hers), there’s truly something for everyone in today’s sweep of early Black Friday sales — many of which, we think, would make excellent gifts. And if you’re looking for even more early Black Friday deals, check out our roundup of all the best ones here.
We found lots of cold-weather-friendly pieces in Uniqlo’s sale section today, like this fuzzy fleece that’s still in stock in a wide range of colors and sizes.
Complete with all of the basics like a chef’s knife, paring knife, and serrated knife, any home cook (or recent college grad) would appreciate this 17-piece knife set this holiday season.
Some seasonally appropriate cords from Everlane (whose cords recently came recommended to us by several stylish women) in a surprisingly neutral yellow.
Target is already taking 30 percent off all puffer jackets for Black Friday, so you can snag this faux-leather puffer, still available in sizes small to extra-extra large, before the temperatures really start to drop.
And this lightweight puffer, fit for chilly morning runs or layering under a vintage coat, for a scant $28.
Electric toothbrushes outperform manual ones when it comes to reducing plaque, so here’s one from Quip that has a built-in timer and travel cover (that also makes for a practical stocking stuffer).
If his home office isn’t quite as warm as his actual office, gift him these thermal joggers, which are made from a cozy cotton blend.
For the little one on your holiday list (or an in-law you despise), here’s an educational piggy bank that introduces babies to counting and colors through over 40 sing-along songs and phrases.
A similar model to this Lenovo laptop made our list of best laptops for college students, but we think this one, with a 14-inch display and 8 GB storage, would be perfect for younger kids who are learning from home, or for those looking for a no-frills laptop for browsing and streaming.
And for the friend who loves a good loaf but doesn’t always have the time to bake one, gift them this programmable bread-maker that’ll do all of the kneading, rising, and baking for them.
