Black Friday gifts sold like hotcakes last November – and with the shopping bonanza less than two weeks away, you don’t have long to wait to pick up the very best Christmas gifts for less. You have it on good authority: this year’s Black Friday gifts offering is plentiful, with discounts to be found on luxury gifts for women, gifts for teenage girls, hard-to-find gifts for men and birthday gifts for parents.
Of course, the plethora of Black Friday deals that extend through ‘til Cyber Monday can sometimes feel too good to be true. So, we’re here to help you distinguish the good from the bad; the epic from the ugly. We’ve spoken to retailers, monitored what GLAMOUR readers have been buying since the dawn of the year and tirelessly monitored sale prices to curate an edit of Cyber Monday and Black Friday gifts that are perfect for people with expensive taste. (Read: they have hefty full-prices but won’t break the bank because cost of living crisis and all that).
The trick when it comes to Christmas shopping on Black Friday? Make a list of everyone you need to buy for, research the products they’d love the most, make a wishlist and set a firm budget. Perhaps the best Black Friday beauty deals, fashion deals and homeware deals will make it stretch further. We’d also recommended researching the sales returns policies for the brands you shop from, just in case you want to send your great gifts back.
Despite Black Friday being a little way off, there are tonnes of early Black Friday deals happening – and with them, lots of very luxe gifts you can buy for less already. Ahead, you’ll find our tightly-edited curation – including treats from Dyson, NARS, The Row, Daily Sleeper, H&M, Benefit and Clinique.
Ahead, our full edit of the best Black Friday Christmas gift ideas.
Whether you’re shopping for your wife, girlfriend, mum, best friend, sister, auntie, mother-in-law, or grandma this Christmas, the best gifts for women are never an afterthought. Rather, a considered purchase which you’ve taken some time to mull-over.
For the loved one who forever looks perfectly put-together, taking advantage of the Sephora Black Friday sale – and shopping for the Dyson Corrale while it has £100 (!) off – is highly recommended. It’s usually £399, but is on sale for £299 at Sephora right now: a rare chance to give the gift of beautifully-blow dried hair for less. It boasts innovative flexing plates that will allow her to style her hair with less heat than her average hair straighteners (and avoid kinks), and the cord-free technology means she won’t be tied to her mirror while she styles. Genius.
If it’s a luxury gift you’re after, you might consider treating her to the Hunza G swimsuit she has always lusted after (but never been able to justify herself). ICYMI, Hunza G is a swimwear brand which has been around since the ’80s (they were behind the iconic dress worn by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman), making a name for crinkle swimwear which flatters and stretches to all body shapes.
