Black Friday: Amazon Gift Guide

When it comes to Black Friday shopping, I immediately think of Amazon. That’s because they are going to have some of the best deals on tech, especially their own Echo line (“Alexa, do all my Black Friday shopping for me, please!”)

I’m creating my wish list for Amazon items, but when all else fails, you can always check their “Early Black Friday Deals” page to get some good deals on various items before the Black Friday shopping madness begins!

For the Tech minded :

For obvious reasons, if you’ve been deciding whether or not you’re going to get yourself an Echo dot (Alexa), then now is definitely the time to do so! Amazon always has huge deals on their own products! If you’re interested in getting yourself a Kindle Paperwhite (what I have!) or a Fire tablet, there’s going to be no better time! It’s also an easy time to snag yourself a fun little screen protector or carrying case for your tablet!

Another popular item that I snagged last year during Black Friday was my favorite Roomba! It’s been a great addition to our family and I can honestly say I’ve NEVER seen it as cheap as I did on Black Friday! There are various levels of Roombas that you can get, but the 690 works from your phone and with Alexa, meaning that you can turn on your Roomba from anywhere! I’ve even set up a schedule for ours so that it turns on when no one is home!

For the Food Lover:



Black Friday is another time to find yourself some great deals on expensive kitchen gadgets or as a great gift idea for the foodie in your life! A popular gift idea during the Prime Day sale was the Instapot and it immediately sold out! There are three different sizes, depending on your needs. You can always consider getting a cookbook as a stocking stuffer gift idea to go along with your main gift!

Another big gift idea from the Prime Day sales were the sous vide makers! Who doesn’t love making amazing food from the comfort of their home?! These are another great gift idea for the food lover in your life - marked down especially for Black Friday!

For the coffee lover:

Black Friday is a great time to step up your coffee game, too! Pour over or Aeropress methods are a great way to add flavor to your coffee! Think about adding a nice grinder or a designer bag of coffee beans to the mix for the perfect gift for a coffee lover! You can also grab a reusable coffee filter to help cut down on environmental waste!

For the fitness buff:

So, I fall into this category more often than not, but Amazon is a great place to check for a variety of fitness gear, including shoes, athletic apparel (sports bras!!), and also fitness trackers. The big ticket items usually are always on great sale during Black Friday so those are usually the first things I go for!

What other items are you excited about for this season?
