It’s that time of year again! The love/hate relationship with Black Friday is finally here. Do we go? Do we stay home? Do we wait until Cyber Monday? If a deal presents itself and you’re not being trampled to grab that children’s toy – the answer is go! I know many people are partial to going Black Friday shopping, but I think it’s a great way to grab your Christmas presents early. And depending on how well you deal with large crowds of people, you can get a pretty good deal on most of the items sitting on your Christmas list.

Although I haven’t actually been a serious Black Friday shopper, I do go from year-to-year to just pop in to a few stores and see what’s actually discounted. Sometimes I find myself wanting the item that’s not on sale, and unless it’s a necessity I urge myself not to buy it. This is the time of year for giving and a special time for saving!

I think everybody loves when you can shop early and get presents for the WHOLE fambam at just a few stores. In the past, I used Black Friday as a way to stock up on stuff my family needed, but this year, I’m definitely using it to get ahead on my Christmas shopping so that I can enjoy the holidays and soak in Christmas time without being stressed to the MAX. And let me tell you, I already feel better about Christmas this year.

So here are the best Black Friday deals I found that you can cross off your Christmas list for the entire family!

The Best Black Friday Deals | Christmas Shopping for the WHOLE Family - 2017 black friday shopping deals and tips that save money |

For Mom:

LinenSpa Reversible Comforter (In all sizes) – Because one can never have enough blankets, comforters, duvets, or throws. It’s not a thing. Plus, reversible comforters are just that much more convenient. (There I go again preaching convenience!) The Queen-sized comforter is only $17.99!! Now that’s a deal!

Kindle Paperwhite E-reader – This kindle is the perfect gift for your mom, mother-in-law or special lady in your life. It has a built-in adjustable light, wifi, glare-free and a single charge lasts weeks, not hours or days! This is the best time of year to snag one of these bad boys up.

iRobot Roomba Wi-Fi Connected Robotic Vacuum – You’ll be the favorite child after giving this gift. Your sweet mom will never have to sweep or vacuum again. The iRobot uses a 3-step cleaning system to loosen, lift and suction everything, managed by your phone. This Black Friday you can get it for $279.99 – $100 less than it’s original price!

For Dad:

Vizio Sound Bar System – We all know the guys of our family are glued to the TV, like 24/7. There’s usually some game on, whether they’re a fan of the team or not. This would be a great gift for your dad, hubby, or brother. And I’m sure they’ll appreciate you for enhancing the sound of their game. Grab it now while it’s down almost HALF it’s original price – From $79 to $49!

Hanes Men’s Boxers (5 pack or 10 pack) – Alright, we know you can’t go wrong with buying your dad boxers. Like, do they ever buy new essentials? I swear every guy keeps them until there’s no crotch left in them. I recently just had to buy my husband new undies because he claims his are “still good.” They are all ripped and have holes in them. These Hanes men’s boxers come in packs of 5 or 10 and you can get them for as low as $10.49!

For Boyfriend/Hubby:

TCL 49-Inch HDR Roku Smart TV – Okay wifeys, I know you don’t want to fill your house with 10 TVs, but your hubby could use an upgrade from his huge box TV in his man cave. It probably doesn’t even have a brand name on it, that’s how old it is. So, get this Smart TV, that’s $40 less than the listed price!

Apple iWatch Series 1 – My husband has been begging for an iWatch, so I’m seriously considering this deal. If you purchase the Apple iWatch Series 1 during the Black Friday sale at Target, you’ll save about $70 so the watch will be $179! Otherwise if your man is the innovator of the fam, the new Series 3 Apple iWatch starts as low as 329.99 (original price $429.99), you can see that here.

Men’s Woven Flannel Pajama Pants – They can never have too many pajama/sweat pants, trust me. I swear they can be seen in pajama pants more than jeans and that’s not an exaggeration. These are on sale for $12 down from $16.99 and they’ll most likely last through all of those days spent lounging on the couch watching ESPN.

For Young Kids:

The Original PlasmaCar – Apparently this car is the coolest toy on the block for toddlers 3 years old and up.

Fisher Price Little People Sit N’ Stand – I love this idea for keeping the little ones busy on a cold, snowy day. The Black Friday sale has this fun toy for just $19.99, down from $34.99 – 50% off!!

Melissa & Doug Wooden Double-Sided Tabletop Easel – I LOVE Melissa & Doug toys. The entire company makes toys that are fun, yet educational for children. Most of these toys do not include batteries, either. This Tabletop Easel can be found at Target on Black Friday for $19.99 AND when you buy ONE Melissa & Doug toy, you get the second one 50% off.

For Older Kids:

Amazon Echo Dot – My 11 year-old sister has an Echo Dot and absolutely loves it. It’s a hands-free, voice controlled device that plays music, makes calls, sends and receives text messages, reads audiobooks or the news, sets alarms, and controls Fire TV. It’s pretty cool, to say the least and every kid would be happy to have one.

UrBeats Headphones – Kids are prone to losing headphones and whenever they need them, they’re long gone and can never be found again. These headphones are perfect for the older kids that are gaining responsibility and frequently use headphones. This UrBeats are originally $99, but for Black Friday, they will be marked down $50!! That’s $49.99 for a pair of good quality headphones.

Jetson Beam Electric Scooter – The Black Friday sale on this electric scooter is a steal! It will be on sale for $199.99, when the original price is listed for $299.99. So, if you get the scooter on Black Friday, you’ll essentially save around $100! And you’ll have some happy kiddos scootin’ through the neighborhood.

XBOX One S 500GB – I’m totally not for kids playing video games day and night, but this is one heck of a deal (a $90 save to be exact!) if you’re going to buy them one eventually. Who knows, right? 🙂 Plus, it will keep them busy during these winter months when it’s too cold to be outside every night. It’s on sale for $189.99 down from it’s original 279.99! When you buy the XBOX, you’ll also receive a $25 Target gift card.

For Baby:

$19.99 Fisher Price Kick & Play Piano Gym – This play mat will keep your baby busy and entertained for hours. There are 4 ways to play: tummy time, lay & play, sit & play or take-along. Super fun for your little babe!

ezpz Happy Mat – It’s an all-in-one place mat + plate that capture’s all of your baby’s messes. It suctions directly to the table, making it nearly impossible for your little one to grab and throw it. Let’s face it – it basically saves you from losing your mind during meal times. They also have bowls that are the same concept!

Gymboree Clothing – What makes this sale especially good is that you get 50% off everything, plus $25 off every $100 you spend, PLUS they usually have a doorbuster going on that includes items up to 75% off! $7 tees, $8 leggings, $10 pajamas and $8 cold weather accessories. THEN, if you sign up for their emails, you’ll get an additional 20% off your entire purchase. If you’re baby is growing like crazy OR you’re an expecting mom wanting to stock up on clothing, this is the deal for you.

For Friends:

Holiday Sherpa Throw Blanket – For Christmas, I’m all about getting my friends small gifts that mean the most. Every year, we’re already buying gifts for our families including our parents and siblings, so for our friends we like to keep it simple, yet classy. These throws are on sale for just $10! And they’re SUPER warm and fuzzy for around the holidays.

VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser – These diffusers usually run $99.99, but for Black Friday they’re dropping that price by nearly $65! Catch them while they’re on sale for $34! And I’m sure your friends will love it.

Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Expresso System with Milk Frother – I don’t know about you, but almost ALL of my friends are as obsessed with coffee as I am, so how cool would it be to surprise them with their own expresso machine? These machines are normally $88, but during this special holiday, they are on sale for… wait for it… $33.99! Ahh – grab them while you can. I might even get myself one. 🙂
