Black Friday U.S. – It’s a Big Deal
To say that Black Friday in the U.S. is a big shopping day is a BIG understatement.
Black Friday is the second biggest online shopping day of the entire year (the top spot goes to Cyber Monday).
In 2020, $9 billion was spent on online purchases on Black Friday.
And more than a third of Americans do most of their shopping on Black Friday (reference).
This is all very interesting, but enough of the statistics…let’s move on to the fun stuff and the Black Friday deals!

Black Friday Deals 2021
I rounded up the best Black Friday deals for 2021! You can relax with a cup of coffee, and do all your holiday shopping ahead of time, while saving a lot of money. That way you can enjoy December, knowing you got all your Christmas shopping already done. You amazing planner and savvy shopper you!
One small disclaimer: everything in the list below was on sale and available when I wrote this post. The deals on some of the products below are so good, and there are limited numbers of the items, that some could possibly be out of stock by the time you look at them. This shouldn’t be the case with most of the deals, but I want to give you a heads-up about that, especially if you wait!
Okay, let’s dive in to the best early Black Friday deals!
Early Black Friday Deals: Amazon Finds
Early Black Friday Deals on Toys and Games for Kids
I bought this princess dress-up shoes and accessories set for daughter about a year ago at full price. I still thought the set was worth it because she uses the pieces all the time still a year later, but I would have preferred to get the Black Friday deal on this.
This camera for kids was another gift I bought full price for my daughter. She loves taking pictures around the house, she takes lots of pictures of our cat (lol), and she likes snapping pics of trees and rocks when we go on nature walks.
They seem to alternate which color camera is on the Black Friday sale, so just check that out if you’re interested in the early Black Friday deal.
If you have space in your backyard, your kids will love this saucer swing. It’s big enough to fit 2 or 3 kids at once, and strong enough to hold adult weight, so you can get your kids to push you while you relax (ha!).
This wooden dollhouse would be a dream gift for any little girl (or little boy – this is Black Friday 2021 folks!).
What is it about kids and dirt? Encourage their dirt fascination with this shovel/digger toy that they can ride on. So much backyard fun!
Early Black Friday Deals: Kitchen and Household
I love anything copper, and these Moscow Mule Copper Mugs caught my eye. The copper mugs come in a set of 4, and include copper straws, and a copper shot glass. They come in a gift box and would make a great gift for husband or dad (or self or friend).
I feel like I am one of the last people to have a robot vacuum. Having a cat that sheds fur all over the house, this iRobot Roomba would make a great gift for myself.
If you hate vacuuming, or want to cut down on the amount you vacuum, and especially if you have a pet, a robot vacuum would be a really worthwhile purchase.
A good air purifier is not inexpensive. To filter out all the ickies (scientific term), you’ll want a high quality unit with a HEPA filter, and one that is the right power for your room size. I would keep my eyes open for early Black Friday sales on air purifiers to save a bunch of money.
We have three units – 2 bedroom units and one for the main living area. When you clean the filter, it’s amazing how much fluff and dust and cat fur it even pulls out of the air. I love my air purifiers! lol
I know people who use their air fryer every single day. It really cuts down on cooking time (ie 8 minutes instead of 20 minutes in the oven), and it’s fun to use too!
One year for Christmas, my dad bought my mom a vacuum.
Aaaand…they are still together! lol
She actually wasn’t mad at all about the vacuum – she had asked for a high quality cordless vac on her Christmas list. If you love a clean house too or clean for stress relief (my hand is up!), take a look at the early Black Friday deals on a cordless vacuum like this one.
Black Friday Deals on Electronics
These wireless earbuds are noise-canceling (great for working from home!), have a long battery life (up to 24 hours!), and come with a charging case.
This chromebook 11″ laptop is an Amazon bestseller, and it is 50% off for Black Friday!
Black Friday Deals on OtterBox Cell Phone Cases
I LOVE OtterBox cases and always buy them when I get a new cell phone. I am someone who needs to have the confidence that I can drop my phone and not have the screen shatter, and that’s what OtterBox does for me. There are Black Friday deals on a lot of OtterBox cases; I saw some for 50% off or even more.
Do you like the convenience of reading ebooks? This new Kindle is kind on the eyes, with a new adjustable warm light, faster page turns, and up to 10 weeks of battery life. This Kindle is even waterproof, perfect if you like to read in the bath!
For serious photographers only, this Sony camera lens gets rave reviews. If you are going to make a bigger purchase like this zoom lens, it’s awesome to get a good chunk of money off the price as a Black Friday deal.
Black Friday Deals on Gifts for Babies and Toddlers
Why do kids love spinning and getting dizzy? There is science behind that which I won’t get into, but give the gift of sensory stimulation with this very popular spinning toy for 18 months+.
Cute bath toys like this Octopus ring toss bath toy were a lifesaver when my toddler was going through a bath strike. Toys made all the difference!
If you are pregnant or are planning on getting pregnant, you need a body pillow. Don’t overthink it, they will change your life and you will never want to get rid of it (even after the baby is born).
Even living in a small house, I found a video baby monitor incredibly useful. I loved the peace of mind with being able to see her in her room, without having to peek in (and risk waking up a light sleeper!!)
This compact stroller is so cute, lightweight, and perfect for travel or just day-to-day strolling. You’ll get lots of years out of it as you can use it for kids from 6 months to 4 years+.
Hot Mom Baby Carriage
This gorgeous stroller comes with a lot of attachments: included are a stroller basket, rain cover, mosquito net, wrist band, cup holder, seat adapter, canopy, and more. It sells out fast!
I hope this post helps you save lots of money on the gifts for everyone in your life this holiday season!
