Though Thanksgiving is still nearly three weeks away, retailers are starting to promote their early Black Friday deals. But the real surprise is that many of the discounts are quite good — and there are lots of things that’ll make nice gifts, as well as some gadgets to help you make Thanksgiving dinner.

Bras, underwear, shapewear, and more are up to 60 percent off at Knix during their warehouse sale. We recently named this the best soft-cup wireless bra, so if you’ve been wanting to give it a try, it’s 35 percent off in two pastel hues.

With Thanksgiving just weeks away, you’re going to want a powerhouse like Breville’s smart oven in your arsenal. Food writer and editor Alyse Whitney calls this her “ride or die” and uses it six out of seven days of the week. It has 13 preset functions, two levels, and cleanup is easy with just a lining of aluminum foil.

Over at REI, a few Black Diamond headlamps are up to 34 percent off. I love mine for camping trips but have also found that it’s helpful for household chores like rolling out trash bins at night.

This shawl-slash-cardigan from Barefoot Dreams is super-cozy and up to 40 percent off, depending on the color.

Here’s a gift idea for the home gardener and modern-design lover.

And another nice-looking addition to any indoor jungle: These mid-century-inspired planters. There are four different sizes and five different pot colors to choose from.

This puffy Adidas bag is just $25 and would be great for hikes, going to concerts, or just walking around town.

Jambys were a big hit with our team when shelter-in-place orders had us hunkering down at home. Their loungewear is made from a proprietary micromodal fabric that is “soft, stretchy, light, and more breathable than cotton,” says associate editor Louis Cheslaw. Everything is 25 percent off until November 17 with the code EARLYBLACKFRIDAY.

I’ve been a Roku user for years, but recently made the switch to a Chromecast. It can be set up in minutes and has an easy-to-understand home screen to access all your apps and provides suggestions on what you should watch next.

This chunky-soled sneaker from Fila was made for tromping — and now they’re just $63. Plenty of women’s sizes 5 through 10 are still in stock.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
