What HGTV Editors Are Buying During Black Friday and Cyber Week
From tried-and-true products that we're buying as gifts to high-ticket items we know rarely go on sale, browse some of the best items worth buying during Cyber Week, according to HGTV editors.
The commerce editors and writers at HGTV.com spend the entire year discovering, testing, reviewing and writing about the best products in the home space, so when the big sale holidays roll around, we usually have a good idea of which deals are actually *good* deals. From items that rarely go on sale to high-ticket items to discounted holiday gifts, here's what we're adding to our online shopping carts during this year's Cyber Week sales. Plus, we're highlighting some on-sale items we already own and love that we think you'll want to own, too.
"I have one and love it. It’s a great space-saver for my small apartment, and it does everything I need it to — plus, the spoon holder on the handle is brilliant. It’s beautiful, too, so it’ll make a fantastic gift." — Alida Nugent, Senior Content Strategist
"Since it first launched about a year ago, I've been eyeing this vintage-inspired tile mat from Letterfolk, the same small business behind those trendy letter boards you see all over Instagram. Like a letter board, these mats are customizable so you can change up the message or design with the season using the flexible silicone hexagon tiles. If you're like me and want to shop small as much as possible this year, this fun Letterfolk tile mat would make an excellent gift!" — Laura James, Editor
"My mom has been dropping not-so-subtle hints that she’d like a cordless stick vacuum for Christmas. I’m thinking about going in on a Dyson with my siblings to really indulge her. The price is too good to pass up!" — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"I JUST tried out this robot vacuum, and if you have a small space and don’t want to splurge on a higher-end vacuum, this would make the perfect gift for somebody’s first apartment! It works excellently for the price." — Alida Nugent, Senior Content Strategist
"After reading my coworker’s review of Buffy’s Breeze Comforter, I’m convinced it’s the next thing my bed needs for that luxe, hotel-quality vibe. The temperature-regulating 100-percent eucalyptus fiber is worth the splurge, but you can’t beat a 20-percent discount!" — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"I stumbled across these tortoise chains for clipping on face masks on Etsy the other day and plan to order one as a holiday gift for my mom — no more digging through the bottom of her purse or pockets to find her mask. There are several styles to choose from, and I might even snag one for myself." — Laura James, Editor
"I really want to treat my sons’ teachers since this has been a year like no other. Williams Sonoma’s exclusive decadent hot chocolate will make for a divine teacher’s gift paired with a gift card or mug." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"I received a silk pillowcase as a gift last year, and now that I'm hooked (it does wonders for my hair and skin!), I'm going to pay it forward by gifting this top-rated mulberry silk pillowcase and eye mask bundle from Brooklinen." — Laura James, Editor
Silk pillowcases come with a lot of touted benefits like hydrated skin and fewer face creases, but are they really worth the money and maintenance? We tested silk pillowcases with a variety of fabric weights and price tags to come up with our tried-and-true picks.
"I already own this life-changing mandoline and plan on grabbing a second one to gift to my sister because it’s amazing. The safe-slice design prevents your hands from ever going near the built-in blades, so kids can even help food prep. Plus, it features 30 (!!) different preset cuts, so you can slice, dice, julienne and more." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"If you’re even THINKING of splurging on new sheets, buy the luxe set from Brooklinen. They get softer with each wash and are the best year-round sheets I own. I also give them as gifts as well to anyone who wants a good night’s sleep (don’t we all?)." — Alida Nugent, Senior Content Strategist
"We’ve gotten really into salt in my house. (Call it the Molly Baz effect?) I’d love to surprise my husband with a box of this premium salt in his stocking since he’s been perfecting his bread baking and pickling skills over the past several months." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
