It’s Black Friday!! Yes, Black Friday! Never heard of it??! No, neither had I, until this year…here’s my quick overview.

As you may have seen in the press, yesterday was Thanksgiving in America. Traditionally, the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) marks the unofficial start of Christmas shopping. Retailers slash prices for a short period, anything from 24hours to 3 days, where they heavily discount their regular stock. Historically, this has been retailers most profitable weekend of the year. Hence the term ‘Black Friday’, meaning ‘in the black’ as opposed to ‘in the red’…still with me??! This tradition has now moved over to the UK in a big way with retailers such as Asda, Amazon & John Lewis participating in this marketing frenzy. Luckily, some of the smaller ones are too so here is my rundown of their discounts and my pick of what to buy.

I think this is a great time to get some staple items at a great price. So although I’ve included some gift ideas I’ve also tried to hunt down some great wardrobe staples that you can get at a great price.

I love this Green Contrast Stitch Card Holder for a splash of colour in an otherwise brown world of men’s leather goods.

25% OFF all full price orders (excluding Whistles and Sale). Use code FRIENDS25. Valid until midnight 1st December.

This Little Leo scarf by BeckSondergaard, the Scandinavian designers who specialise in quirky but wearable accessories is a great gift.

I love this navy parker too by Des Petites Hauts. Definite wardrobe staple.

When I wrote this, John Lewis hadn’t published their discounts so I’m unsure of the deal although I do know that it’s only for one day, Friday. What better time to buy a Nespresso coffee machine like this one?!

Nespresso Pixie Automatic Coffee Machine by Magimix, John Lewis, £122.24 (original price).
