We’re just a week away from Black Friday, but several retailers have already revealed deep discounts ahead of the impending craze. There are a few larger merchants in the mix — like Target and Nordstrom — but we were surprised to find indie brands like nonalcoholic-aperitif maker Ghia. Plus we secured a Strategist-exclusive early-access pass to Tatcha’s sitewide sale, so scroll on to get the 411.

This is a newer version of a Bose speaker that comes recommended by actress-singer Dove Cameron. “It’s really small and really portable, but the bass is super intense,” she told former Strategist writer Chloe Anello.

Tatcha’s Black Friday sale officially starts on November 21, but Strategist readers get early access to the sale with code “NYMAG.” This gentle exfoliator is made from finely milled rice bran and papaya enzymes. When mixed with water, it turns into a gentle foaming lather that won’t strip your skin.

Adult Grogu fans will be green with envy that this adorable zip-up doesn’t come in their size.

In case you need to stock up on leggings now that winter weather has arrived, a lot of Zella athletic wear is on sale as part if Nordstrom’s Holiday Deals Event.

We crowned this soft-cup wireless bra from True & Co. as best in class for both smaller and larger breasts. Writer Brodie Lancaster says that the brand’s scoop lift bras “straddle that middle ground between classic T-shirt bra — with subtly molded cups — and sports bra but without any of the heft.”

Several Strategist staffers keep their home bars stocked with bottles of alcohol-free Ghia, a bitter-tasting aperitif made with elderflower, yuzu, fig, rosemary, and ginger. Everything on the site is 20 percent off — in case you’d like to pick up a spritz or a hazelnut spread too.

Everything at Madewell is 40 percent off with code “OHJOY” for the brand’s early Black Friday sale. That discount applies to some already discounted pieces like this chunky cardigan, which is down to $57.

A well-made flannel always makes for a thoughtful gift. This one’s available in seven earthy colors and plaids, but a few of them have limited sizes.

Here’s a set of colorful meal-prep storage containers for every day of the work week. They are safe to put in the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer.

If you’ve got an Encanto fan at home, know that a lot of toys inspired by the Disney movie are on sale at Target. Shaped like a book — and equipped with a working lock — this 114-piece set features three micro-dolls and décor from Isabela’s room as well as a sticker sheet to customize everything.

This Nutribullet blender is an irreplaceable sous-chef that can blend everything from smoothies and soups to sauces and nut butters.

A gift that works for kids and adults alike, this Bluetooth karaoke microphone that former Strategist writer David Schwartz described as “the way through which you vocalize your inner truth” is 64 percent off.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
