For the first time ever, my dad has started online shopping for the holidays. Years prior, he poked fun at us for taking care of all of our shopping through Amazon.

In his eyes, some of the holiday magic was missing. He had a point. But having boxes arrive at your door is a lot easier than fighting for a parking space, waiting in line, and throwing a bunch of spontaneous purchases in your cart at the last minute that you don’t really need. Online shopping makes holidays less stressful. Plus, if it’s a store like Amazon, you have everything you need on one site.

Amazon is your one-stop shop for all of your holiday essentials.

Plenty of us remember when the site carried only books. Slowly but surely, it widened its web to include makeup, groceries, clothing, and even toys. The latter is extremely important, as big-box stores like Toys R Us — which used to be essential around the holiday season — are currently no more.

Since the site is so expansive, it’s key to know what types of deals will be offered for Black Friday ahead of time. With Amazon, it’s essential to keep a watchful eye on items you want. The online retailer has been known to pull out surprise sales at the last minute and often extend its deals so that everyone can partake. Amazon is also very sneaky, meaning that sometimes you might not know how long a deal will last.

Here are a few of the must-shop Amazon Black Friday deals that have been revealed in advance. Some are at their price point right now, meaning you may want to get an early start.

Insignia 32-Inch Fire TV


If you’re looking to replace your television, look no further than Amazon. This TV will be 41% off listing price on Black Friday. The best part? You don’t have to pick it up from the store yourself — it’ll arrive right at your door.

Kindle Paperwhite+

Kindle Paperwhite+

If you love to read but have minimal apartment space, a Kindle Paperwhite is the best. The visuals make it look like you’re reading a typical book, but it’s lightweight and easier to travel with than a bulky hardcover. The Paperwhite+ is also water-resistant.

23AndMe Ancestry and DNA Kit


Curious about where you came from? It’s possible that the cost of DNA kits has turned you away from figuring that out. This 23andMe kit is extra special since it can also tell you a little bit about your genetic traits. It’s fascinating to think about how much one little test can tell you about yourself.

Fitbit Versa 2


It’s crazy to think about how Fitbits have evolved over time. The Versa 2 is one of the coolest versions since it syncs up with Alexa. It can also track your heart rate and sleep as well as play music.

Hard-boiled eggs are a great and healthy treat (and a fantastic grab-and-go breakfast), but it’s way too easy to overcook them. This tiny appliance will make sure you have perfect eggs every time. This model is also currently listed as being 50% off.

Canon Wireless InkJet


Back in the day, printers were a must-have in every home. These days, they’re more of a “nice to have.” With a deal like this, you’ll want to consider adding a printer back into your home for last-minute copies and photo printing. Even though it’s nice that most files are digital these days, having hard copies of important documents may be a lifesaver.

Measuring Spoons

Measuring Spoons

Ideal as a stocking stuffer, nobody will turn down a new set of measuring spoons. Avid bakers try hard to take care of the ones they have, but they can easily get misplaced (or damaged, if they fall into the garbage disposal — yes, I know from experience). It’s also a good add-on for any other baking-inspired gift idea you may have.

If you have kids, you’re probably familiar with L.O.L Surprise. The toys are popular since plenty of them are limited edition. If you’re searching for a gift for a 5- to 8-year-old, this Winter Disco kit will likely be a hit.
