Clicking around the internet the past few weeks, you might be wondering if the whole retail world has gone on sale — those who've been virtual-window shopping for gifts know damn well it has. And, as a shopper in the market for the good goods to give, it's not a bad thing to have major coin lopped off anything and everything you've ever considered purchasing. But, lordy lordt, is it overwhelming. To add to the frenzy of parsing through the internet's bevy of deals, there's also the whisper of unreliable shipping — which we get, sending stuff takes time and we're in the midst of a supply chain meltdown. (Editor's note: we're feeling frantic too.) That's why we decided to hunker down and do what we do best: scour the internet with a fine-tooth comb to find the best gifts on sale so you can rest easy.
To make this list, each gift needed to pass three checkpoints: it's on sale; it can be received by Christmas; it's a crowd-pleaser. From giftable deals on best-selling sheets they'd never splurge on themselves to a pair of comic-book-character clad socks and a deluxe bead kit, now's the time to treat your loved ones to a few special holiday surprises. You can tell them it was on sale or keep it to yourself because they'll never know the difference. So get gifting before these extra-extended Cyber Week promos come to an inevitable end, R29 friends, because who knows what tomorrow will bring. Actually, we do — it'll probably bring up the prices (aaagh!).
