What HGTV Editors Are Buying During 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 love, love, love this pillow. It's instantly comfortable and cooling, and it feels like it's made for you. It's the best pillow I own — so buy one for yourself and get one half off to gift, or just keep both!" — Alida Nugent, Senior Commerce Strategist
"As a side sleeper, this is one of my favorite pillows I've tried! Thanks to the ability to add and remove fill, this is also one of the best pillows to give as a gift, which I did last year and plan to do again this year. Made with a revolutionary blend of memory foam and microfiber, The Original pillow from Coop Home is designed for both immediate and lasting comfort and support that won't fall flat over time and comes with an extra half-pound of fill so the recipient can make the pillow more or less firm to their liking. Plus, it's on sale for Cyber Week!" — Laura James, Editor
"I got into gardening and plants quite a bit during the pandemic but don't have much room in my home for all the houseplants I wish I could have (also, my cats like to eat them all). I'm asking Santa for an AeroGarden Harvest Elite this year because I really want fresh herbs during the winter and a low-maintenance way to add some greenery into my home that won't take up much real estate — or entice my cats." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
The popular non-toxic ceramic cookware brand Caraway is offering a tiered discount with 10 percent off orders of $95 or more, 15 percent off orders of $395 or more and 20 percent off orders of $595 or more. Several of our editors plan to shop this rare sale.
"I have heard so so many things about how great this pan is, so this is the gift I'm planning on giving myself this year! Everyone I know who has tried it swears by it, and I love that it's nontoxic." — Alida Nugent, Senior Commerce Strategist
"My dad gave my mom this cookware set last year and it is beautiful. I get a little bit jealous every time I visit and see my dad whipping up a batch of fried eggs without any sticking, crusting mess. If you want to upgrade your pots and pans (or treat someone else to a nice new set), I cannot recommend Caraway enough. They're sleek, non-toxic and come with their own genius storage system." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"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 tell myself I'm going to try to knock out all of my gift shopping by Cyber Monday most years, but this year, I actually mean it because I want to avoid shipping delays (and stress). I recently bought a couple of these custom name puzzles (that are 20 percent off right now!) for my niece and nephew from the New York-based Etsy shop Bloom Owl and received them in less than a week! You can choose from several different color schemes and designs and add a display stand if you want. A custom puzzle is such an easy, thoughtful gift for any baby or toddler, especially if you want to shop small but still get fast shipping." — Laura James, Editor
"I know I'm not alone in being a huge fan of Rifle Paper Co. With the entire site being 30 percent off, I feel like this is a sale you cannot miss. I'm eyeing this very European umbrella to replace an old rusted and bent one I've had for years. Not an exciting purchase, but a necessary one for upcoming winter weather. Hot Tip: If you're looking for a gift for your mom or mother-in-law, you can't go wrong with something from RPC." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"Minted holiday cards are my absolute favorite. I've used the site for five years now to create unique, high-quality Christmas cards to send to family and friends. I love shopping their Black Friday sale because their prices are usually a bit higher than other online card-making sites, but the sale makes it much more affordable. Right now, Minted is offering 25 percent off everything and free shipping with code CM2021." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"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 Commerce Strategist
"My husband gave me this silk pillowcase last year, and I absolutely despise any other kind of pillowcase now. It feels like heaven. My hair never frizzes anymore and sleep marks are a thing of the past. If you haven't splurged on this beauty essential yet, now is the time, especially if you're a new or expectant mom, because it's 30 percent off at Anthropologie and it rarely gets marked down that much. (Or just drop a not-so-subtle hint to your S.O. by sending them this link. 😘)" — 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
"I tested Boll & Branch sheets and a duvet cover for our Best Sheets and Best Duvet Covers buying guides this year and wow, this bedding is legit – totally worth the hype. Score a set for yourself while they're 25 percent off and then warn everyone that they'll be hearing about how luxe these sheets are for the next couple of months." — Molly Miller, Assistant 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 Commerce Strategist
"I didn't realize the life-changing power of soft, plush bath towels until I was gifted these Brooklinen towels to replace my very old IKEA ones that, to be frank, lost all softness after the first few washes. Even my husband has been asking when we're getting more, so it's time to invest in the full Brooklinen towel collection and make bathtime even more relaxing and luxurious, especially since the brand is having a 20 percent off sale right now." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"Sniffles, sneezes and coughs have officially entered the chat. I keep this Levoit humidifier running pretty much from November through February in my boys' room. It helps break up congestion to let them breathe easier at night. It's also whisper-quiet and super easy to clean and refill." — Molly Miller, Assistant Editor
"If you've been thinking about getting a home security system like I have, SimpliSafe, one of the most popular and easy-to-install DIY systems, is having an incredible sale where all systems are 50 percent off, plus you get a free SimpliCam indoor camera ($99 value) through Nov. 29! This Essentials Kit, one of the brand's best-sellers, is even 60 percent off right now!" — Laura James, Editor
"Away's carry-on suitcase has always has been my favorite suitcase to travel with, and now that I have some more travel plans, I can't wait to use it again. Away is offering up to 40 percent off select items, so it's the perfect time to buy a gift for anyone in your life who loves to travel." — Alida Nugent, Senior Commerce Strategist
