I have to admit I am not a big in-store Black Friday shopper…like, AT ALL (one, because I hate fighting through hoards of people to save a few bucks, and two, I want to soak up every bit of holiday time with my family that I can), so I really bank on some good online sales all holiday season long. These retailers had some pretty great Black Friday sales in the past, and I’m hoping to see them again!
(Psst…for a peek at our other wishlists and keep an eye on our upcoming posts, head over to Black Friday/Cyber Monday central here.)
Pretty, Chic & Useful: Tori’s Black Friday Shopping Wishlist
1 // Anthropologie Teddy Sherpa Tote Bag – At this stage in my life, I need practical handbags. I carry snacks, diapers, wipes, toys, etc… with me everywhere I go, so size matters. But I’m also not a huge fan of the typical diaper bag. Instead, I’m always on the hunt for cute, oversized totes. This Teddy Sherpa Tote Bag from Anthropologie is a great price, super-cozy for the winter and totally practical!
2 // MAC Wish Upon Stars Mini Lipstick Set – I am really hoping to see this item on sale at Nordstrom, though I’ll definitely buy it for myself as a little stocking stuffer regardless. I am a lipstick gal, and I love to have a wide assortment of colors to choose from. MAC lipsticks have always been a favorite of mine, and I love the colors in this set. Even not on sale, this set is a great deal!
3 // Kendra Scott Vanessa Slider Bracelet – I’m a big Kendra Scott fan, particularly because I love the dainty look and feel of her jewelry. Plus, it’s such a great price point for quality jewelry! This bracelet really caught my eye. I’m hoping to either snag it myself or slyly put it on my husband’s radar for Christmas. I love the black braided cord and blue is my favorite color, so I would wear this piece A LOT! I’m loving the rose gold/peach option too, so if Nordstrom is so kind as to throw these on sale, I’ll definitely be going for both!
4 // Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro – If you told me ten years ago that I’d be putting a vacuum at the top of my Christmas list, I would have laughed out loud. But here I am today, pining for a Bissell. I have three small kids (soon to be four) and two very hairy pets, so anything that helps me save time while keeping my house clean is going to be a high priority for me. I absolutely love that this is a wet and dry vacuum cleaner/mop all-in-one product, and I’m reallllllly hoping to see it included in some kind of Black Friday sale somewhere. But let’s be honest, I’d happily pay full price and call it a day, because this bad boy can clean 4,000 square feet of hardwood floors, tile and carpets. SOLD.
5 // Express Long Moto Jacket – I love a good moto jacket, but to be honest, this winter I am looking strictly for jackets that will cover my behind while I happily pack on the pregnancy pounds. I love that this jacket gives me the style and the look of the moto jacket, but in a more comfortable way!
6 // J.Crew Balloon-Sleeve Turtleneck – I wear balloon sleeves all year round, whether it’s short or long-sleeved — I just find them so flattering. I think a balloon sleeve takes what might be a very basic looking shirt or sweater, and just kicks it up a few notches to make it super-fashionable. This turtleneck sweater comes in some stunning color options and is on sale now for a great price!
7 // J.Crew Tie-Neck Silk Top – The only thing you’ll find me wearing just as much, if not more than a good balloon sleeve top, is a tie-neck top. This is on sale now, and I don’t think I’m even going to wait until Black Friday — I’m afraid it might sell out before then — it’s already running really low in stock in some of the other color options, so hop on it!
8 // KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker – OK, so I know most of you have switched over to hot coffee by this time of year, but I have terrible heartburn/acid reflux, so hot coffee is no longer an option for me. I have found, however, that I can tolerate cold brew, so this KitchenAid is super-high on my list of want it/need it/gottahaveit Christmas items this year. It’s actually on sale right now on Amazon for a great price ($59.99), which is what it was priced on PrimeDay, so I may just go ahead and pull the trigger on this guy rather than wait!
9 // Algenist Secrets of Algae Kit – I live by this skincare product. Since I started using the Genius line by Algenist, my skin has been clearer, smoother, more even-toned, and way more hydrated. Sadly, I am almost out of my Liquid Collagen, so I am definitely looking to snag some more on Black Friday weekend! Even not on sale, this kit is a $200 value for $115!
10 // Sperry Saltwater Waterproof Rain Boot – I know these are categorized as a rainboot, but I truly wear my Sperry boots all fall and winter long — through rain, snow, sleet, whatever. I’m hoping to see these go on sale, but I’ll be buying them regardless because I get too much wear out of them not to. They hold up great, and I love having ALL the colors (how cute is the buffalo plaid?!)
