Happy Thanksgiving! We try to spend time acknowledging what we are thankful for every day, but we love that there is a whole day dedicated gratitude. There is so much that we are thankful for, but at the top of that list is: each other, our families, our health, the travels we’ve been fortunate enough to experience, our new home, and every single one of you. It’s been so amazing getting to know you all through our conversations here and on social media. We want you to know how much we appreciate your support as we pursue this little dream of ours!
We will be spending today and tomorrow spending time with family and doing lots and lots of eating! As far as Black Friday- the sales are GOOD this year! We typically prefer to spend Friday Opting Outside, so we get all our Black Friday shopping done online. The selection is better, it’s less stressful, and we can spend more time with our loved ones.
We know shopping these sales can be overwhelming, so we did our best to create an ultimate shopping guide for you. Down below you’ll find our favorite sales in alphabetical order. If you click any of the retailer names, it’ll take you to our full guide for that site. On here we just included our absolute fave picks. If you click any of the photos, it’ll take you directly to the product.
The Ultimate Black Friday Shopping Guide

Amazon has a giant sale page full of discounts and they are continuously adding to it. We’ll be adding to our Amazon page as we find more deals. For now, our favorites are: this travel backpack marked down 59%, this essential oil diffuser marked down 40%, and these fairy lights. The fairy lights are pretty amazing, they are under $6 for a 9 foot pack- we’ve never seen it that cheap and we use fairy lights ALL over the house. If you’ve been looking for an Instapot, we found it 31% off.
My favorite of all the sales! I always use this time to buy items I’ve had my eye on and home items that I know I’m going to love using daily. This sale is a bit shorter than the others, so keep checking until you see it come up. I’ve been obsessed with these mugs and they’d make a perfect gift! I always get compliments on these geode coasters. And we use these mini bowls daily. This personalized cheese board would make the perfect hostess gift!
Bassam’s absolute favorite place to shop! Literally his whole closet is from here. Here are some of his absolute faves that he wears on repeat: this blazer, these sweaters (he has them in multiple colors), these button downs (has them in multiple colors and styles), and these jeans (he says they are the most comfortable). I don’t shop at Banana too often, but I am crushing on this jacket, this sweater, and this dress. I also love picking up jewelry pieces during their sale times, like this necklace.
Here’s where I pulled together some of the best deals I was finding that I wasn’t doing a full post for. Things like the best price on Hunter Boots I’ve seen (several options, depending exactly what you are looking for, so check the post). A $150 blanket marked down to $35 – fantastic gift idea!! Under $90 for a Ninja coffee bar. And more! This page will be continuously updated, so keep checking it! Let me know if there is anything specific you are looking for and I’ll try to find it for you!
The best sale for J Crew all year! I’ve had my eye on a few coats for some time now, so I jumped at the chance to purchase them with this sale! Both are made with Italian wool so they are extremely warm and high quality. I purchased this one, which I feel is slightly dressier. And this one, which is more everyday. If you are going to get one, I suggest this one. Some really great gift ideas on here, like these super luxe leather and cashmere gloves. And this cozy scarf – $30! Their men’s selection is also fantastic. I know Bassam would love to receive: these rocks for whiskey, this sweater, and this vest.
Kate Spade – 30% off entire purchase with code: GIVEJOY
(Please note: there is not a full guide for this retailer)
I’m always lusting after Kate Spade items but I never purchase them because they are so pricey. This is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself or a loved one to her whimsical and pretty products. I’m really lusting after this wallet. I’ve had my eye on this beanie. I have and LOVE this book, perfect gift idea! This bracelet is an adorable gift and under $50. I also love this bracelet. This necklace is such a great gift idea.
hurry it ends 11/23 at 11pm! will probably go to 40% after that
So much great stuff on here! Perfect for yourself or for a gift. I’ll be picking up: this sweater (so cute for the winter season!), this sweater (love the open back!), this adorable cardigan, and this pretty dress. I have and love: this long cardigan in green and white and this cozy vest,
So many amazing deals! I’ve had my eye on these boots and they are 50% off. I have this dress and have worn it SO much. I’ve also had my eye on these thigh high boots. I have these wedges and they are SO comfy and SO cute! These are the softest and comfiest flats I own. These earrings under $10 would be a great gift idea. Finally, these waterproof booties are a must! Lots of great finds on the men’s end as well. Bassam is absolutely obsessed with these shoes. He is so extremely picky and he says these are so comfortable. He’s been wearing them constantly for the past two years. This coat is so classy. And this set of skin care products (under $20!) would make a great gift.
I love buying investment pieces that I will wear for years to come. The Tory Burch Black Friday sale is perfect for this! This pair of flats is a classic that can be worn for years and I’m really loving the blush color of this tote. I’ve had this bag in black for years and all the new colors are so pretty.
So many great sweaters and dresses! I have my eye on this cozy sweater, this cozy thermal, and this pretty dress. These pretty glasses would make a great gift as well as this shot glass tic tac toe board.
