When is Black Friday again? Considering all the leaks, drops, and noise this month, you'd be forgiven for asking that question. Though it doesn't technically start until November 29th, tons of retailers have already announced their planned deals (or just outright made them live). This means that you, dear reader, have a big opportunity to take advantage of sales that a bunch of people—the kind that just expect to camp out in front of Best Buy—might not know are happening.
There are a lot of things you can do with this opportunity, for example, buy a ton of stuff for yourself. Some of these sales are actually very good. You probably need (and deserve) new clothes and new tech as much as anyone. But these early deals are also an excellent chance do something for all the other people in your life. Your parents, your partners, your friends, your very-hard-working-editors deserve thoughtful gifts as much as you do. We've spent a bunch of time here at GQ compiling some of our favorite luxury, design, and fashion gift ideas, but we've also seen a bunch of things we love pop up on the virtual Black Friday sales racks. Everything from enormous TVs, to super soft sheets, to minimalist furniture is available at a big discount right now. So, when is Black Friday? Might as well be right now.
Black Friday Tech Gift Ideas
The biggest Black Friday sales tend to be on tech. If the people on your list are looking for new headphones, TVs, or a Kindle, you're in luck. Those are among the many devices that have already gotten some decent discounts from Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.
$350.00, Best Buy
$100.00, Best Buy
$1200.00, Best Buy
$800.00, Best Buy
Black Friday Bedding and Textile Gift Ideas
Everyone likes high-quality sheets and towels, but they can also be a hard thing to buy for yourself. It feels like a needless luxury to get something great from one of our favorite companies rather than just getting the cheapest thing from your local Dillard's. Your giftee deserves better! And thanks to the Brooklinen sale that's already active, they can.
Black Friday Kitchen and Cooking Gift Ideas
The biggest kitchen and cooking deals are still to come, but if you're trying to get as much of your shopping done early as possible, there are a few you should definitely consider.
$19.00, Sunday Scaries
Black Friday Furniture Gift Ideas
Big discounts on furniture are rare, which is why these discounts on items from the sale section at Urban Outfitters are such a big deal. You probably can't count on these things to last a lifetime, but considering their simplicity, they'll certainly stay with you for your next few apartments.
$250.00, Urban Outfitters
$150.00, Urban Outfitters
Black Friday Menswear Gift Ideas
It's cold outside! Everyone could use some extra winter accessories.
$50.00, Banana Republic
$118.00, Hugo Boss
