IT’S BLACK FRIDAY BITCHES! (Note: That is declared with love and affection.) So whether you want to treat yourself or start your holiday shopping, it’s time to consider a wide array of gifts, products, treats, and anything to help keep you sane.

On that note, I have a confession: I’m mostly done with my holiday shopping. Why, you ask? I want to say that I’m concerned about the supply-chain crisis resulting from COVID-19 disruptions paired with a boom in demand.

However, it’s more that I love shopping (if it’s not obvious) and simply couldn’t wait to dive in. It’s also nice to have as much of your shopping done ahead of time. That way, come December 1st, you can kick up your feet, sip your peppermint mocha, binge-watch holiday movies and not worry about what in the holy hell you’re giving Aunt Jeanette.

So, in honor of Black Friday, I’m going to share a bevy of products that I think might make you or someone you know happy because, as Jon Snow once said, “SHOPPING SEASON IS COMING.” (Ok, he didn’t actually say that, but I think we can agree that some in-store Black Friday Sales feel a little Games of Thrones-ish, no?)

As always, here’s my little preamble: Some of these products were sent to me to try out. Others, I ordered solely on my own and loved them. No one has paid me to include any of these products in this piece, and I don’t work for or make a profit off of any of these companies in any shape or form. This is just one consumer speaking to another saying, “Hey there! These products don’t suck! Check them out!”

And with that, let’s dive into the Retail-Therapy Round-Up for Black Friday… and black is slimming, so we’re already off to a good start!
