We’re one week out from Black Friday, but the beauty of shopping online is that sales are nearly infinite and checkout lines are nonexistent.

And if you’re still on the hunt for some gifts (or gifts to yourself, we won’t judge!), we’ve rounded up many more of the best early Black Friday sales, gift guides for everyone from teenage girls to teachers.
