Black Friday Gift Guide!

I'm not going to lie, y'all- I'm definitely a big fan of Black Friday. Although I really do wish that they would just let it start on, y'know, FRIDAY. I feel like they should leave Thanksgiving alone. It's a day to be thankful, not to shove people over a stupid TV set or phone! That's so silly. So, I never do any Black Friday stuff on Thanksgiving. I like to go out early on Friday morning- everyone's tired from being out all night, and so the stores are so much quieter, it's great.

But I really like Black Friday, because it's a great chance to be able to grab some Christmas gifts for friends! And no, I'm not advocating obsessing over Christmas before Thanksgiving has even happened. I just don't think it hurts to be prepared! Another great thing is that the online shopping around Black Friday is amazing, and the introvert in me can't help but love the idea of being able to get my shopping done without leaving the house. So today, for all of you beautiful introverts out there, I decided to put together a list of some great gift ideas to grab on Black Friday, from the comfort of your own house. So grab some chocolate, a list of those people you still need to find gifts for, and settle in- I've got you covered!

I tend to like to do most of my online shopping on Amazon. They have sales going on constantly this weekend, so honestly you can probably find a new sale every time that you log on. The only problem with the way that they do this is that it's kind of difficult to predict what is going to be on sale when. So since I can't really point out specific sales that are going on, I thought I'd just put together a gift guide full of ideas- I can almost guarantee they'll be on sale at some point!



Y'all know that I absolutely love books, of any kind. Books just make the world a better place! They're a perfect gift for pretty much anyone- after all, there are endless possibilities to choose from. There has to be something that the person you're buying for would enjoy reading! Some of my personal favorites for this holiday season are All the Light We Cannot See, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the Hamiltome


I'm fully convinced of the fact that the world runs on soundtracks. ALL THE SOUNDTRACKS!!! And if your friend claims that they aren't a friend of soundtracks? Well, it looks like you have a whole new world to introduce them to. ; ) Some of my personal favorites at the moment are Hamilton (naturally), Waitress, and Jane Eyre. 

I raved about these last year, when I got one for Christmas, and my obsession still hasn't died. Almost a full year later, and I'm still filling it in nearly every single day without fail. It's just the best way to record memories, without having to take more than five minutes of your day. 

Polaroid Cameras

Polaroids are super popular right now, and it's easy to see why- they're adorable! 

Adult Coloring Books

I swear, these things are amazing stress relievers. They're so intricate, and really fun to work on while you watch TV or before bed to relax. There are so many cute ones, too- I've seen them all over town! Barnes and Noble has some super adorable ones, and I also really like this one as well. 


Gold bar necklaces have been all over Instagram lately, and I have to say that I'm definitely a fan. They're so cute, super minimalistic, and literally look good with anything. 

Pom Pom Key Chain

I admit, at first, I was kind of dubious, but these key chains are honestly really cute. I have a white one, and I love it!

Gel Nail Topcoat

You guys. This topcoat is my new holy grail. I'm not even kidding. Whenever I paint my nails, they seem to chip horribly, but when I use this topcoat, I can go an entire week before I have to redo my nails. It's crazy! You don't have to use UV lights, either. I swear, this stuff is magical. 


So- are you going Black Friday shopping? Any gift ideas in mind? Let me know! Heaven knows I need more ideas- I'm so behind on planning out Christmas gifts, it's not even funny! I hope that you all have a wonderful, safe weekend. ♥

      I only go out when the crowds are low- otherwise it scares me. XD

  5. I just finished some Black Friday planning (mostly online stuff, you know :) )

    Great list, though! You really covered all of the bases! I'm also after some nice sweaters and chokers. And you can never go wrong with a nice makeup set from Ulta or Sephora!

    1. Black Friday is so much fun!! Online shopping is my favorite, hahaha. SO much less stressful!!

      Thank you! Ooh, I've loved the sweater and choker trends that has been going around lately! And makeup is always a fantastic option- I didn't get to go makeup shopping this year, but I'm hoping to hit some after-Christmas clearance sales for sure!


    I never go Black Friday shopping, lol. My mom hates it! Which I can see why. Last year was my first time going and she only took me because I begged *laughing emojis* I WANTED THE EXPERIENCE. But I don't think I have ever been so completely exhausted in all my life, lol!!

    1. EEP THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! <3<3<3

      Ahahaha, I can't quite blame her- IT CAN BE SO SCARY! I try to go when it's not going to be crowded, so I don't get trampled. XD It's exhausting, though!!
