My Favorite Black Friday 2023 Deals

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may earn a small commission if you click my link but does not change your price. See my affiliate policy here.

Here are all my favorite Black Friday deals available this year. They’re things we personally use frequently and really love, and have paid for with our own money. A lot of them are items where I stock up this time of year when they’re on sale – I hope it helps you save some money, as well!

I’ve also included a list at the bottom of my affiliate links for LOTS of different shops. I very much recommend not purchasing things you don’t need/want, because buying things you won’t use isn’t saving money! That said, if there are purchases you’re making, I truly appreciate you using my links. It’s a super kind and generous (and easy!) way to support my small business while shopping bigger businesses! Thank you!

Live Crude Skin Oil – 25% Off PLUS 20% Off

I’m very excited to stock up on my favorite cleansing oil. I love that it doesn’t dry out my skin and keeps it so clear and healthy. I’ve been using it as my cleanser for over two years and have had literally two zits in that time. TWO. It’s amazing and my skin feels so much better moisturized.

It’s pricey so I always like to get it when they have these super sales. It’s currently 25% off and my code PREETHI20 stacks for an extra 20% off.

Keen Footwear

Keen is having a huge blowout with 25% off literally everything on their site, with many items 40-50% off. If you’ve been considering getting something, now is the time. We absolutely love Keen for our kids summer sandals (they live in these for hiking, walking, pool, beach, literally everything), waterproof hiking boots for big kids and little kids, everyday sneakers, and lots more. A couple of my kids need new sneakers so I’m really excited to try out their new lightweight, waterproof trail to blacktop sneaker.

Dime Beauty Blue Facial Oil

I first tried this magic witchcraft facial oil a few months ago when I had a singular zit – my first in a very long time since my oil cleanser is so amazing. When it appeared, I put on this blue facial oil at night and it was gone by morning. And then it happened a second time. I don’t know what sorcery they use for this stuff, but it’s a great item to have on hand, especially if you’re acne-prone. And I love that the whole line is clean beauty!

AARP Membership for $9

Stick with me here – did you know AARP doesn’t have a minimum age for membership? It’s true. And they hav eall kinds of really fantastic discounts, especially if you like to travel. Amazing discounts on hotels, flights, car rentals, and lots more.

For Black Friday, membership is only $9 for an entire YEAR. You also get a free gift – my favorite is the car trunk organizer; we love these and they are SO helpful, especially on a road trip. Just the gift is worth at least double the price of membership so go grab it ASAP.


If you’ve been here a while, you know I’m NOT a big toy buyer. But I do love a few great basics that encourage open-ended, imaginative play that keep my kids occupied not just for hours, but for YEARS. I enjoy having a few things on hand that help them be creative, learn, and cooperate. Here are some favorites that are on sale:

  • Great deal on this kids’ microscope that was a gift from grandparents and that my kids love
  • Big sales on magnetic tiles. This brand is terrific and works with lots of others. This is probably our number one toy over the years so get these for your kids if you don’t have them already.
  • More than half off on our very favorite family game for ages 8+
  • Volcano science kit
  • Target is up to 50% off on lots of toys, and BOGO on many others
  • Stocking stuffer price point on our favorite card game
  • Carcassonne – such a fun game for ages 6+ and I paid almost double when I bought it
  • LOTS more game deals

Craftsy One Year of Craft Classes for $0.65

I’ve talked about Craftsy many times before because we love their online classes. There are so many options, from drawing to painting to cooking to woodworking to photography to cake decorating. They’re the best for my kids, too, especially in the middle of winter when it gets dark super early.

Right now, Craftsy is offering an entire YEAR of membership for only $0.65. That is bananas. I’ve never seen it that low. You can also cancel autorenew immediately after signing up, so there’s no risk of being charged beyond that. Go sign up right now and thank yourself over winter break.

Kids Hydration Backpacks – over 50% off!

I’ve talked about how much we love these kids hiking hydration backpacks about 8 million times and this is the best price I’ve seen on them. All 4 of my older kids have used and loved them. Absolutely get these if you’re at all interested in outdoor adventures as a family. Would make a great gift – we’ve given them to a couple of our kiddos for birthday gifts and they’ve always been a big hit and gotten tons of use.

Biossance Skincare – 30% off whole site with EXTRA30

The Biossance 30% off sale is here!! This is always when I stock up on what I need for the year. Plus, they’re giving away a 10-piece gift set with orders of $75+ – this is limited and sells out every year. (There is GOOD stuff in this gift set that always includes some of my favorites so I make sure to get it every year.) 30% off site wide with code GIVE30. I stocked up on my favorite items I use every day:

Piccolina Women Leaders & STEM Clothing – 50% or more off sitewide

I’ve long loved Piccolina and they’re having a sale of at least 50% off sitewide! My kiddos (and I!) especially love these trailblazer shirts. It’s a fantastic women-owned small business to support that also invests in equity and highlighting those from marginalized communities.

Kibou Diaper Belt Bag – 20% off Sitewide!

I’ve used this little belt diaper bag nonstop the last few months. It’s so so great for carrying diapers & snacks, and organizes the rest of my stuff so well in a tiny bag. There’s a built in wet wipes pocket, a fold out changing pad, credit card holders, and multiple zipper pockets. I’m as obsessed with it for a day out at at home as I am with it for travel – it’s perfect for keeping the essentials by my feet on a plane without taking over all the leg room.

Rumpl Blankets – 25% off Sitewide

We really love the Rumpl blankets – the original puffy blanket is so cozy and great for outdoor adventures. Lately, I’ve been using the kid size one ALL the time to wrap around baby S in the baby carrier – it’s so warm but not bulky so it’s perfect for her in there. And we absolutely adore the everywhere mats – they clean up so easily, are waterproof underneath, and fold up so small. They’re so great for any outdoor adventure or picnic. The entire site is currently running their biggest sale at 25% off!

Madewell – 50% Off Sitewide!

I’ve been anxiously waiting for Madewell to go on sale. I’ve been needing new jeans after passing along several postpartum pairs and Madewell has been my fave for almost a decade. The entire site is 50% off, which is huge.

REI – up to 40% off

REI has some really incredible deals happening right now. 40% off jackets, 25% off Hydroflask, great deals on basics and camping. A great time to purchase if you have outdoor needs or want to give the gift of adventure and connection in nature this season.

Kinfield Clean Deodorant, Sunscreen, Insect Repellent – 30% off with code LPF30

My favorite deodorant and sunscreen are clean and work super well. The deodorant has a slight fragrance and is great for sensitive skin, so it works awesome for my teens, but is a little pricey so I’m getting several now when on sale. The Sunglow sunscreen is my absolute favorite for it’s pretty rosiness and fantastic mineral coverage that doesn’t leave a white cast.

If you’re in a buggy area (or traveling to one, this deet-free insect repellent works so well and smells really good. The insect repellent wipes are perfect for travel (and to tuck into a stocking).

Thrive Causemetics – 20% Off Sitewide

I’ve loved Thrive Causemetics for years for their clean beauty products. Their mascara is the very very best – better than any I’ve ever used, including non-clean ones. I’m stocking up on this one – it’s a cult fave for a reason.

Art Supplies

I really love having our craft area well stocked with art supplies and always include a few fresh ones in my kids’ stockings. I rarely buy single-use extras, but we are almost always stocked with great basics. Here are some favorites for our whole family:

  • We got this art set for K’s 8th birthday and she still uses it almost daily
  • I never thought the type of colored pencil matters all that much but it turns out it does and my kids use these WAY more than the super cheap ones. But they’re pricey so now is the time to get them while on sale.
  • We love these scissors! They’re sharp and cut so well. Not for younger kiddos, but my older ones love them and so do I. We seem to have lost a couple of ours so I just ordered more!

Guardian Bikes – Up to 1/3 Off!

Our beloved Guardian Bikes almost never go on sale but they have one currently going! If you’ve been considering a new kids bike, now is the time. Guardian bikes have a patented brake system so they’re the safest on the market and all 3 of my older kids have them.

Here’s more about our family biking gear.

I’ve used this concealer for years and years and it’s the best for dark circles.

I wish we had a Sam’s Club by us because this is a super awesome deal as it’s essentially like getting a free membership. You can also split it with a friend and each pay $10. Sign up HERE.

Hanna Andersson 50% Off Sitewide

Hannas are our favorite for jammies and also just other cute, comfy, really well-made kid clothes. Baby S is currently wearing some jammies that N wore when he was tiny – they’re the ONLY jammies that have lasted literally through 6 kids and still look almost new! Great time to fill in any clothing needs with durable, quality kid clothing at really inexpensive prices.

Tubby Todd Bath & Skincare

Our favorite bath and skincare items are on sale! They are our favorites because they are super gentle (even safe for teeny babies), have clean ingredients, and smell amazing. They only have sitewide sales a couple times a year so that’s always when I stock up. Here are some of our favorites:

Ultra Repair Cream – 50% off

One of my kiddos has super dry skin and so I grabbed this cream on sale two Black Fridays ago. It has worked so well for him and also for me. But it’s quite pricey so I only get it when it’s discounted. This scent is on super sale and I think it smells really nice.

Gabb Phones & Watches

I’ve talked about our kid-safe Gabb phones and watches many times because we love them.

This weekend, they’re offering a free device and 55% off other devices with the code PASSPORT. Full review of our experience is here.

Takeya Water Bottles

These are my kids’ favorite water bottles that they take every day to school and bring on travel. Keep things hot or cold for soooo long. My older daughter lost hers a month or so ago so I’m grabbing a new one for her.

Purple Mattress – up to $300 Off a Mattress

We got a Purple mattress about a couple years ago and love it SO much. It’s so comfortable and great for sleep. Big sale on them.


Rifle Paper Company – 35% off Sitewide

I love Rifle Paper Company prints so much and this is their biggest sale of the year. Last year, I got tea towels (this one and this one) and this very pretty puzzle to do as a family on Christmas Day. I also love their candles and I’m stocking up on their wrapping paper.

Board Games

Some of our favorite board games are on big sale! These are perfect for gifts or stocking stuffers. We always love having a new game or two around the holidays to play together!

Hello Bello Diaper Bundle

I’ve heard about Hello Bello for quite some time now, but have never tried it myself. They’re offering $40 off a bundle for Black Friday, which makes these diapers cheaper than brand name ones. They’re darling with tons of adorable prints, and you even get a free gift (I signed up and got coconut oil kids body wash). I’m especially excited for the Nutcracker print diapers – sign up here and use the code DIAPERS. (And be sure to cancel your subscription if you don’t want to be charged again).

Hulu – Only $0.99/month for 12 months!

We’re not giant movie watchers, but we do like catching up on some TV shows. I especially like watching old and familiar shows while getting fairly mindless things done in the evenings.

Hulu has a great deal for Black Friday – only $0.99/month!! This is the cheapest they’ve ever done. It’s definitely worthwhile for access to tons of TV shows and movies.

AirPods – $189

I use my AirPods every single day and love them so much for exercising, while cleaning/cooking/etc. This is a great deal on them.

Virtu.Academy Online Music Lessons – Julliard, etc. trained teachers – 15% off all lessons!

Before we moved, we used Virtu Academy for online violin lessons for my older 2 kids for about 2 years and LOVED their teachers. All the teachers are incredibly trained both in performance and teaching (I’m talking international performers and Julliard graduates) and it’s so convenient to do it right from home. My kids have improved so much in that time.

The rates are already really reasonable ($29 for a 30 minute individual lesson) but they’re currently having a Black Friday sale of 15% off all lessons! They’re also raising their rates next year but you can still use any credits purchased at this price so it’s a great time to buy. I purchased the full allotment of 24 lessons in advance for our family to use.

They have teachers in all kinds of different instruments and teachers for adults, kids, and anyone in between. Such a wonderful opportunity and would make a fantastic gift for a musical child.

Brooklinen Bedding – 25% off Sitewide

We absolutely adore Brooklinen sheets and I’m grabbing a fresh set during this sale. They’re so soft and crisp and just really lovely. Plus, I love the story of the founders, too.


I get tons of my kids’ clothes (and my own) from H&M. I love the Euro cuts, cute prints, and reasonable prices. This is a big sale on stuff that’s already inexpensive so it’s a good time to get wardrobe staples that you need.

Kohl’s – extra 15% off

I don’t often purchase items from Kohl’s, but we love these Cuddl Duds robes. They’re SO cozy and cute. I got M the unicorn one last year and she still wears it almost every night.

Lots of pretty jewelry and more. I love this set of two pairs of wintry stud earrings and am getting it for my older girlie.. This purse is so pretty and is an incredible deal.

shimmy tote

Boden – up to 40% off

I love the Boden style both for me and for my girls but it’s a bit pricey normally. But they currently have some huge discounts. I love this beautiful dress for me, and this absolutely darling one for my little girls and this coordinating one for my older daughter. It’s just over $40 with the discount, which feels very reasonable for such lovely quality. There are tons of other beautiful styles available.

Bubbsi – Natural Coconut Oil Skincare

We absolutely love all the Bubbsi products, but this amazing coconut oil balm is my very favorite. I love it on my babies and little kiddos, but also use it all the time on myself. Super moisturizing and smells amazing. And this is the lowest price they’ve done. And is an Indian-American woman-owned small business!

Audible 4 months for $5.95/month

I’ve done Audible a few times but am not a current subscriber, so I was really excited to get this offer for 4 months for $5.95/month. This is a smoking deal and allows you one audiobook credit each month (and you can keep that audiobook forever even if you cancel after the 4 months), plus access to thousands via Audible Plus. Perfect for car rides or at home for me or the kids.
