One of the greatest perks of being a Shop Your Way member (in my book, anyway)? Getting to shop the Black Friday deals a week early. Not only does it mean I get to dodge the mall crowds, but I get most of my holiday shopping done before Thanksgiving. This year, the deals were amazing! I shopped for five people, all for under $100—plus a few dollars I’d accumulated in points. (Perk alert!) Planning to head out later this week? You won’t be sorry. See what I bought.
For My Always-on-the-Go Sister: The Covington Studded Hobo ($24.99)
She has two kids under the age of three, which keeps her busy—to say the least. Still, she keeps up with the trends and dresses to the hilt—which is why this handbag had her name all over it. It’s the color of the season and features of-the-moment studs, plus it’s sized for the essentials—like diapers and snacks.
For My Ultra-Trendy Friend: Kardashian Kollection Premium Denim ($24.99)
It seems she knows what everyone’s wearing, from runway models to reality stars—so I have a hunch she’s heard about Kardashian Kollection Premium Denim. One of the latest lines by the ever-evolving Kardashians, it features ultra-flattering stretch and new shades and prints. I picked up the army-green Kim style, as—skinny and “military”—it’s two trends in one.
For Me: The BONGO Faux-Leather Jacket ($19.99)
I am constantly distracted while holiday shopping; while I set out on a mission for great gifts, mega-sales on trends always make me take notice. This year? I was all about the BONGO faux-leather jacket. It was marked way down and fit like a glove, so I reasoned I needed it. No regrets so far.
For My Ruggedly-Handsome BF: An Outdoor Life Flannel + Henley ($12.99 + $9.99)
Warm, classic and a perfect match for denim, this take on his go-to flannel had us at hello. It’s a no-brainer pick he’ll want to wear everywhere. As for the henley? We’re not so sure. We’re hoping it will ease him into the idea of layering. At just $9.99? It’s worth a shot.
For My Perfectly-Predictable Mom: BONGO Moccasin-Inspired Slippers ($11.20)
She always claims she’ll love anything, which never fails to make shopping difficult. But, this year, I was quick to find just the thing: a pair of comfy-classic slippers that fit her style to a T. She’ll throw them on time and time again—to fetch the paper, snuggle by the fire, for seasons.
