If we had to give anyone one piece of advice for holiday shopping this year, it would be this: Don’t wait until Black Friday! With shipping delays and popular items selling out non-stop, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to cross a majority of your picks off your list. And you don’t want a gift arriving in January — or even later!
We’re not telling you to buy everything at full price though. We would never. We just want you to take full advantage of all of the early Black Friday deals and offerings available this year online. Nordstrom, for example, has so many awesome picks already marked down to help you nab all of the gifts you need (plus a few treats for yourself) with time to spare. So let’s do this thing! We’ll start you off with our faves from the top gifting categories below!
Our Absolute Favorite: First off, we wanted to showcase our tippy-top pick for 2021. It’s designer — as great gifts often are. We’re talking about this gorgeous, burgundy McGraw Leather Satchel by Tory Burch. It’s the perfect size and a work-to-weekend essential!
