Inevitably, there will be registry items left on your list that nobody has purchased. And yes, traditionally the holidays are a time to get gifts for others. But if you can get a great deal on something you’ve always wanted, why not get something for yourself, too? Black Friday deals have started earlier this year, so it’s time to take advantage of these great sales. Whether your wedding has passed and there are registry items you never received, or you’re still planning and just can’t pass up a deal, it’s time to take advantage of Black Friday Sales. So go ahead and gift yourself (or those you love) one of these practical items just in time for the holidays.
Registry Staple: The Stand Mixer
One of the most popular items to put on a wedding registry is the Kitchen Aid 5-Qt Artisan Mixer. Versatile, long-lasting, and practical. If you don’t have it yet, consider getting it with the Macy’s Black Friday Sales offer. Regularly $399.99, this season it is marked down to $229.99.
Registry Item: Le Creuset Cookware
Professional and amateur chefs alike appreciate Le Creuset cookware. Many couples put various Le Creuset items on their registry, and Williams-Sonoma’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotions include this deal: Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron Round Wide Dutch Oven, 6 3/4-Qt., $249.95. Normally suggested at $380, that is quite a deal!
Registry Item: Luggage
Yes, travel has taken a hit as of late, but eventually, like everything else, it will come back. And when it does, you’ll need some great luggage. A staple on many registry lists, luggage is often the item left for the couple to buy themselves. Away has some great pieces on sale you should know about if you’re looking to purchase your own luggage. Right now the Journey Set is $150 off, and it includes the Everywhere Bag in Navy, the Expandable Bigger Carry-On in Navy, and Insider Packing Cubes (Set of 4) in Coast.
Registry Item: Living Room Furniture
Williams-Sonoma’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals include up to 50% off select living room furniture, so check out their sale for items you registered for that will enhance your home.
Registry Item: Grill
The George Forman Atmosphere Smokeless Digital Smart Select Grill is usually over $150, and with select sales, it comes down to $129.99. But Macy’s Black Friday sales are slashing that price to $99.99, making this totally practical kitchen tool a necessity and bargain at the same time.
Black Friday Sales Already Started!
If you haven’t noticed, Target’s Black Friday deals have been going all month long. Check out their site regularly for weekly and daily specials, and look for great markdowns on vacuums, kitchen appliances and so many other great registry items.
Consider Less Conventional Items
