Black Friday Round-Up & Fave Simplified Gift Ideas!

November 23, 2018

 

Hi friends! Happy Black Friday! I'm not an in-person shopper on Black Friday (no thank you, crowds), but I do a lot of my Christmas shopping online today! I pulled together a list of some of my favorite stores and their sales today:

Julie Vos - I love JV so much. Their jewelry is simple, but really different. Shout out to my friend Annie for turning me onto them. I wear my bee earrings nearly every day! These earrings are a super cute gift idea too (and under $60 for the small pair!) Shop their tiered Black Friday sale here.

Draper James - I won't tell if you do a little shopping for yourself too. I LOVE (!!) DJ. And not just because Reese Witherspoon is so amazing. Their dresses are some of my absolute favorites. Because they are pricy, I shop their sales. The quality is literally unmatched and they fit on the looser side (which I really like a lot). This is my Christmas dress (red is sold out, but the blue is dreamy!) and I may have added this one to my Christmas list today (ahem, Bryan, heyyy!). Save 25% with code GATHERROUND.

Madewell - If you follow me on Instagram, you know I went on a high-waisted jeans hunt this summer. My favorite pair of jeans is from Banana Republic (low-rise legging jeans) and I've had them for ten years. But they've been discontinued. A TON of people told me about Madewell Roadtrippers and I went to Nordstrom to give them a shot. I was VERY skeptical, but they really do hit your waist in just the right spot and look GREAT. They're 25% off today with code DEALWITHIT.

Minted - I adore Minted. I love the idea of gifting personalized stationery to friends for Christmas. Anytime you can personalize something, it's extra special. I also have these stickers for my kids' water bottles, lunch boxes, etc and they hold up GREAT. Their sale is 20% off holiday cards and gifts, 15% off everything else + free shipping! Use code BF2018.

Beaufort Bonnet - one of my favorite places to shop for my littlests. I shop local stores for their line and their online shop. They're having a giant 40% off sale today! Caroline is going to LOVE the dresses I got her for Christmas. We LOVE all their Polly Play dresses. They're so soft and so comfy and a great price! Use code PINKFRIDAY for 40% off plus free shipping.

Hanna Andersson - I always get my kids some pajamas for Christmas. They're always outgrowing them and I swear we've tried every brand to find some that will LAST. Hanna PJs are my absolute favorite and they're $25 today (a steal!!) plus 30% off the rest of their site. I got my kiddos some play clothes to find under our Christmas tree too.

Target - When you shop at Target this weekend, you'll get a 20% off coupon to use on a future purchase. I've never seen them do this before. This is great!! Tyler wants this and it looks like some toys are buy one get one 50% off!

JCrew - Everything is 50% off! That's a big one! I got this for Tyler and these for Bryan. Use code TGIF.

And now, a few favorite gift ideas from the Simplified shop! I've shared some of these in recent FB Lives and you've loved them, so I thought I'd gather them here as well.

An extra special (fully stocked) Recipe Binder (on sale for $30) - Print your favorite recipes (or hand write them), punch holes in them, and slip them into our Recipe Binder. You could even gather favorite recipes from friends and family of the recipient to make it extra special. What a way to gift someone something useful but really make it extra special.

A 2019 Signature Simplified Planner with special dates noted (on sale for $40-50) - Give the gift of a fresh start and also add a personal touch by noting a special time you and the recipient will share together. Perhaps you put a post-it note on a special getaway weekend or date night. Or you could put together a special gift basket with a planner and accessories!

A Pineapple Pen Cup filled with fun (on sale for $20) - This is such a cute idea for favorite teachers, helpers, and friends. Tie a ribbon around our Pineapple Pen Cup and fill it with candy, a gift card, personalized pencils, or beautiful pens (also on sale!).

A heartfelt message tucked inside the pages of a special set of books (get both Grace, Not Perfection and A Simplified Life for $15!) - A husband reached out to me last year and told me he wanted to purchase GNP so that he could write his wife a special note on the pages about mommy guilt -- about how she is perfect just as she is, about how special she is, and about how appreciated she is. I cried at the thought of it! What a special way to bless a spouse, a friend, or a family member.

Happy Black Friday shopping! Our entire shop is on sale up to 50% off through Monday! 

xo,

Emily
