MY GUIDE TO BLACK FRIDAY

I've never done the Black Friday shopping thing, but I'm not opposed to picking up a good deal online. Sad as it is, I tend to pick up a lot of things for myself on Black Friday and Cyber Monday because the deals are so good that it's a great time to stock up on staples. So here's a roundup of some of the best Black Friday deals I could find. Oh, and don't forget to use Ebates for extra savings (go to a store through the Ebates website or use the browser extension to get a percent cash back at participating stores.

Some links below may be affiliate links.

All calendars, including this Rifle Paper Co. Paradise Gardens beauty, are 25% off at Paper Source. (3.5% cash back through Ebates.)





A whole bunch of gardening books are 30% off or more on Amazon, including the very hefty Dirr's Encyclopedia of Trees & Shrubs, which is a great reference book any gardener would love to have.



If you have people on your list who are impossible to buy for, The Grommet is a great place to look for unusual gifts. They are offering 20% orders over $100 and free shipping on order over $25, which means you could pick up these gorgeous goatskin gardening gloves and a few other things for a song. (2.5% cash back through Ebates.)




Buffalo check is the pattern of the moment and you could pick up this shirt (or anything else) from J. Crew while they have a whopping 40% off with the code HOLIDAY. (10% cash back through Ebates.)




My Garden School, an online British garden school, is offering good discounts on its classes. Definitely a great gift for the gardener who has everything. I've been eyeing up the "Planting the Piet Oudolf Way," taught by Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury, for awhile and it's on sale for 50% off—about $155 during their Black Friday sale.




Everything at Crate & Barrel is 15% and shipping is free on purchases over $49 with the code SAVE15. This marble lazy susan is a stunner that any frequent entertainer would like. (1% cash back through Ebates.)


Speaking of gifts for the home, everything at Williams-Sonoma is 20% off with free shipping using code THANKS. The best kitchen towels in the world are the classic striped towels. If you've never tried them, you should. You'll never go back to using anything else.



A few months ago we got a Sonos Playbar and a Play 3 speaker and we absolutely love it. Amazon has the Play 1 speaker on sale for $50 off, and it's the first time I've seen a sale on Sonos products.




All of the prints at Our Fairfield Garden are on sale for just $10 with free shipping. Frame these up and you have an amazing gift.





Wisteria is offering 25% off everything, including these adorable shell stocking holders, with code OURFAMILY.



Serena and Lily is also offering 25% off of everything (use code 25EARLY). Be careful checking it out because it's easy to fall in love at Serena and Lily. Try that 25% off code, but if that doesn't work, you can still get 20% off with the code THANKYOU. It's not hard to pick something I'd love, but today this inlaid bone lamp caught my eye. Sadly the discount does not apply to art (which, apparently is what the asterisk by the "everything" on their website refers to), which is a shame because they have an amazing collection.




I always get the urge to clean and organize this time of year so the 30% off a single item at The Container Store can come in handy. I'd try to use it on something a little more expensive, like this pantry starter kit, to make the most of that deal. (8% cash back through Ebates.)


Shipping is free on the beautiful handmade and delectable skin care products at the Gardenchick store on Etsy. Check out the Snowflake Shea Lotion Bar. Can you say teacher gifts? (2% cash back through Ebates.)




It's not exactly exciting, but Sephora has crazy deals for Black Friday on all kinds of gift sets and some products, including my favorite facial cleanser, Purity Made Simple. I usually stock up during this big sale. But go early because everything sells out quickly. (4% cash back through Ebates.)




Don't get me wrong, I love a good old-fashioned book. But you can't beat a Kindle when you're traveling or reading in bed at night with someone sleeping next to you. I love my Paperwhite. Big discounts happening on Amazon on Kindles, but they often sell out too, so don't mess around and snatch one up.




CB2 is giving 15% off through November 28 with code SAVE15 and free shipping on orders over $49. It's another good place to pick up something for a difficult-to-shop-for friend. Like these flashy gold wire bowls, which would also make great holiday decorations. (1% cash back through Ebates.)

I'll be honest, I'm miffed about this one. The Emily Ley Simplified Daily Planner, which I bought for the first time last year, changed my life. I loved it so much that I ordered this year's more than a month ago. And now it's on a big sale for Black Friday. My loss is your gain. I love this thing and you or someone you know will too.



I discover Antipodes products a couple years ago. They are organic and free of all the bad stuff and I love them. But they are not sold in a lot of stores and they never go on sale. Except, apparently, for on Black Friday, when everything is 25% off with the code HOLIDAY16. I love their serums and oil, but use their face moisturizers too.




Anthropologie has 30% off everything with the code LETSGO, which is a great deal. I think this cup and saucer set, which is gorgeous but priced at a level that few people would buy it for themselves, would be a lovely gift for someone who loves collecting beautiful cups. (1% cash back through Ebates.)


I love me some Kendra Scott earrings and so does just about everyone else. Use the code SALE20 for 20% off everything and free shipping on all orders. They even have a design-your-own area so you can get exactly what you like. My faves are the smaller Lee earrings.




One of the splurges I made in the downstairs bathroom was the scalloped mirror, but it was so worth it. Scenario Home, which seems to never have sales, is offering 20% off everything through Monday with the code CYBERDEAL20.




One Kings Lane is offering 20% off of everything. This one hurts because there is a lot of stuff I'd like to snatch up for myself there, but I told myself I was only going to buy things I needed for myself, not just pretty stuff I've had my eye on. If I were going to pick something up I think I'd go for some of the art I've been considering. I'm loving Teil Duncan's figure studies (although I like some of her other work better and I keep hoping it will show up on OKL) and T.S. Harris' beach scenes.

Now get out there and snatch up those deals!

  1. Love those Anthropologie dishes. I tend to buy their housewares and books but not the clothes.

  2. I just got my shipment of towels yesterday (and it turned out I still had a gift card so they were basically free!) and they are so so so nice. They are almost twice as big as my last dishtowels and super absorbent. I recently decided on a color for my kitchen decorating plans and the black ones fit right in. Thanks for the recommendation!
