The parade may have come and gone, but Macy’s Black Friday sale is very much here. Lots of the best deals are on home goods — like a KitchenAid stand mixer, a very giftable Nespresso machine, and a well-priced Instant Pot. But there are some nice, seasonally appropriate women’s, men’s, and kids’ clothes on sale too, including cashmere sweaters for less than $50, three-in-one North Face Jackets, and celebrity (and mom) approved UGGs. You can also find deeply discounted beauty products from popular brands, including Mario Badescu and Strategist-favorite Sunday Riley. A bunch of the deals last until November 30 — as in tomorrow, the day after Black Friday — and some even extend through December 7. Note: Some deals require using the code BLKFRI; we’ve noted which below.

This egg cooker can make eggs in a variety of ways, but it gets top marks from Amazon reviewers for making perfect boiled eggs.

Travel blogger Alyssa Ramos of My Life’s a Travel Movie calls this her “all-time favorite” suitcase because, even though it has a rigid, protective hard shell, it still manages to fit all the stuff she tends to overpack.

If you don’t need a completely new mattress, this is a good opportunity to upgrade your existing one with a memory-foam topper.

Haley Boyd can’t live (sustainably) without Stasher bags, which she uses instead of Ziplocks and brings to grocery stores to avoid single-use plastics.

This fitness tracker, which comes with more than 15 exercise modes, doubles as a smart watch that can receive notifications from your phone.

For the price of one deeply discounted appliance, you’re really getting two with this air fryer and toaster oven combo.

A similar pair of Beats made our list of the best-rated wireless headphones on Amazon because of their strong bluetooth connection. This upgrade has that same feature plus noise-cancelling technology.

Strategist managing editor Maxine Builder says the Coravin, which lets you pour a single glass of wine without actually uncorking it, would be a great gift for “someone who just bought their first wine atlas and is trying to taste and learn about wine on their own, or a friend who has a single glass of red with dinner one night and then likes to switch to white the next.”

Pet owners know a good vacuum is priceless — and that $79 is a pretty good deal on one specifically designed to tidy up after pets.

Personal blenders are already convenient, but this model is completely automatic, making life that much easier.

A coil-and-foam hybrid mattress from a name brand for more than 60 percent off.

A very good price for a 5-foot-tall bath sheet you can practically wrap your whole body in.

This all-in-one fan, heater, and air purifier is certified asthma and allergy friendly and comes highly recommended.

This is one of the cheapest Dyson vacuums we’ve seen on sale for Black Friday so far.

A shiny, stainless-steel KitchenAid stand mixer, just in time for holiday baking.

For more manual control, this top-rated KitchenAid hand mixer is also deeply discounted.


High-waisted, tummy-shaping Spanx that come highly recommended by celebrity stylist Ali Levine.

A very giftable pair of diamond earrings at more than 75 percent off.

Lauren Stephens, the CEO and co-founder of fleece-apparel line Dudley Stephens who formerly worked in PR at Calvin Klein, told us that this bra “checks all the boxes and is my go-to for a smooth foundation.”

A three-pack of neutral-colored underwear.

If you have been wanting to add a pair of Tevas to your closet, this almost neutral pair is a good place to start.

Jen Romanelli, the co-owner of Trooper Fitness, called this sports bra the “black dress of sports bras.”

This packable puffer makes traveling in cold-weather easy. Also: it’s more than 70 percent off.

Junior writer Jenna Milliner-Waddell has these jeans in black and says they are “probably the closest I’ll ever get to love at first sight.”

Managing Editor Maxine Builder says Wedgie jeans make her butt look good. Here they are, on sale, in a plus-size style.

A good price if you want to dip your toe into the snakeskin-boot trend.

These are still expensive, but a great price for tall Frye boots.

Sleek winter boots that you can also expect to be appropriately sturdy, because they’re from Sorel.

A puffer coat in a trendy style and color at half the price.

For a fleece jacket from the North Face, this is a really good price.

You can wear just the weatherproof shell, or just the insulated liner jacket, or both together, meaning you get three North Face jackets for the (discounted) price of one.

Cashmere sweaters make excellent gifts — and for just $40, why not buy a cashmere sweater to give her, and another one for yourself?

$59 at Macy's
with code: FRIEND

There’s also a turtleneck version of this cashmere sweater.

This deal on cashmere extends to plus sizes, too.

This is also on sale in Berry Jam and Huntress Green.

This leather tote (for under $100) would make a great work bag.

As temperatures continue to dip, you’ll be happy you ordered this parka.

You can now try out the square-neck trend for half the price.


If you’re a fan of #celebsinturtlenecks, this $10 turtleneck will make you look that much more like one.

At this price, you can afford to try out a Chris Black–approved mock neck in a few different colors.

A slightly larger version of the watch that James Stacey, a watch expert and senior writer at Hodinkee, recommended to us. He says Seikos are “simple, robust, super-reliable watches that are easy to get repaired.”

A good deal on New Balance, a brand trusted by runner and writer Steven John, who has logged “well over 6,000 miles in the past ten years.”

Writer David Notis likes these for their fit, but also “for their strong hardware and because they’re 100 percent cotton.”

This three-in-one North Face jacket is also on sale in black and green.

We think this parka kind of looks like the men’s version of the Amazon coat.
