Black Friday: it’s always a blessing and a curse. The deals are always tempting, but the early morning start, the aggressive, pointy-elbowed shoppers, and the stressed out staff is absolutely not. Fortunately, online retailers also offer Black Friday deals, so you get to do your shopping without leaving the warm, safe confines of your Thanksgiving Snuggie. While there are so many good deals, it’s not necessarily super easy to find them. Lucky for you, we've done the digging for you.  We’ve hunted down the crème de la crème of Black Friday deals online. Whether you're looking for the perfect gift for your mother-in-law who makes a famous pecan pie, or for your latte-addicted cousin, or your lean, mean, smoothie-drinking machine of a little brother, these Black Friday finds will have you covered. 

And just between us—we certainly won't tell if you're looking to reward yourself for just how thoughtful and on top of things you've been this year. You deserve it.
