It’s time to get ready for the most important holiday of the year: Black Friday. I mean, how better to get through all of the family drama and mediocre food at Thanksgiving than with arguably the best retail therapy of the entire year?
Of course, Amazon is already rolling out all the stops ahead of this weekend—and since you know we just can’t resist a good deal, we rounded up our favs for you here. Now you can go back to the more important things, like planning where you’re going out for Thanksgiving Eve or prepping your response to when Aunt Susan asks if there are any nice “fellows” back in the city. Cringe.
Let’s get to it.
What’s better than a good pair of jeans? A good pair of jeans with a 40% off discount. Levi’s jeans are a timeless cult-classic for a reason: they’re comfortable, they’re durable, and they’re always in style. They come in a variety of colors and sizes, and there are several other denim styles on sale for those who prefer a different look. You really can never go wrong with a pair of Levi’s, especially when they’re on sale.
With fast fashion trends constantly changing (looking at you, Shein and Zara), it’s important to have good basics that you can wear no matter the hottest viral item. And these aren’t just any pair of black leggings, they’re Alo.
Recognized as the “official wellness partner” of New York Fashion Week, and a current celeb-favorite, it’s no wonder everyone is obsessed with Alo Yoga right now. Whether you’re wearing these leggings to the gym, on the plane, to WFH, or to brunch friends, you can dress a pair of Alo leggings up or down. Not to mention, they feel like butter. Investing in durable and versatile wardrobe staples and Black Friday is the day to do it.
This Nespresso machine is another Amazon Black Friday steal—seriously, if you don’t have a Nespresso machine yet, WTF are you waiting for? The Vertuo machine comes in different colors and with different accessory sets, so there are options for everyone. Dare we say it puts Starbucks to shame, just don’t forget to order some of your fav pods to go with it (we’re partial to the Melozio flavor).
For reasons we’re not entirely sure about, chunky headphones are back in style. Definitely didn’t have that one on our 2022 bingo card, but alas.
So if you’re looking to stay on trend without dropping $500 on the AirPods Max, these Beats headphones are perfect. The Bluetooth headphones connect to all types of technology, has 40 hours of battery life, and charge in minutes. Best of all, these headphones actually stay on your ears. We all know that feeling when AirPods or other earbud headphones fall out of your ears when pretending to workout or attempting to sleep on a plane.
If you don’t have an air fryer at this point, then what are you doing? It’s truly such a game-changer and can make you feel like you have your sh*t together even though all you did was press a few buttons. We love how fast this one preheats and cooks all types of foods. From salmon to fries to cookie dough, you can make anything and have chef=bragging rights.
Is it just us, or can we not even go a day without seeing a walking pad come across our FYP on TikTok? It’s all over for a reason, after all. If you’ve realized that WFH might be more than a pandemic thing, this is a great way to up your game. Sending emails are guaranteed to be better when hitting 10k steps at the same time. After all, was Queen Elle Woods once said, “exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy.”
Once you have the Revlon hair dryer, we have a feeling it’s going to be a staple in your bathroom—you won’t want to use anything else. You can dry, straighten, and even lightly curl your hair with one tool, making it perfect for traveling. Best of all, it’s so fast (aka you can do a blowout in less than 15 minutes). If there’s one item on this list to get, we’d say it’s this one.
A good speaker is something you never appreciate until you’re the person without one. Whether you’re a college student, the MOH in an upcoming wedding, or something in between, this is pretty much the best portable speaker you can get. Summer 2023 will be here before you know it, and take it from us—you’re going to wish you had this speaker the second the weather gets nice out. Oh, and did we mention it’s waterproof? This is the ultimate Black Friday steal.
