Without question, Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. In spite of the addition of the online-only “Cyber Monday” in recent years — along with pandemic-related shipping woes facilitating a seemingly-record number of early Black Friday deals this year — the day after Thanksgiving remains America’s favorite time to seek out the best deals on their gifts for the upcoming holiday season. But Black Friday in 2021 looks a lot different than in the past. The prospect of getting trampled in the early morning hours at your local mall never had much appeal if you ask us, and the prospect is even less attractive during a pandemic. Lucky for us (and you), most brands also offer their exclusive Black Friday deals online as well as in-store, meaning you won’t have to brave any potentially dangerous crowds to save money this Black Friday. We’ve scoured the internet to round up 25 of the best Black Friday deals we could find from brands we love, so pull out your credit card and have a look below.
