Treat Yo’Self: Gifts to Get for YOU This Black Friday

Are you on your own wish list?

Usually right around now, I start thinking about everything and everyone I have to be grateful for in my life —and begin the insane journey of picking out the perfect presents for all the people I love most. I always make sure to squeeze a little Black Friday treat yo self shopping time in, though.

One cannot expect Santa to handle everything, after all.

To offset the guilt (more on that here!), I reserve my “me” purchases for the high holiday of shopping: Black Friday. Lucky for you and me, we no longer live in a time when you have to wake up before the crack of dawn to land deals (thank you internet!), though planning is still key. Not sure what to give that special someone in the mirror the morning after Turkey Day? No worries, we’ve got some ideas…

Shop this Black Friday Treat Yo Self list:

1. Something Soft.

Chilly days mean one thing: it’s time to break out the cashmere. And cozy slippers. And fuzzy socks. And maybe steal your niece’s security blanket, the one she drags around on the floor all day but also makes the best pillow when you’re ready to take a nap.

You get where I’m going with this. On Black Friday, it’s time to bring a little more soft into your life..and I’m not just talking about your post-Thanksgiving, pie-filled belly. So go ahead: Treat. Yo. Self.

2. Something Striped.

There’s just something so winter-y about stripes. From throw blankets for your couch to socks for your feet, stripes make everything feel more…cozy (are you detecting a theme here?).

3. Something Smart.

I’m sure you guys already have the smart home thing on lock, but I’m just getting in on the fun. Someone opened the garage door? Let me check who it is on my phone! Need to know the recipe for vegan stuffing? Hey Google, get on it!

4. Something scented.

Not all of us are lucky enough to have a fireplace of our very own — but that doesn’t mean we don’t crave the scent of a crackling fire in the air. From incense (which is totes back! have you heard?) to candles perfect for cold weather, this year treat yo self to something scented on Black Friday.

5. Something seasonless.

Yes, it’s time to finally pull the trigger on those Steve McQueen-cool sunglasses you’ve always wanted, because the squint-inducing sun is still merry and bright during the day, even in December.
