The holidays tend to come at us fast. There’s always so much planning that goes into Thanksgiving, and then once we polish off those last few plates of leftovers, it seems like the winter holidays are already kicking off. And with all the planning that goes into the holidays, it can be easy to feel too caught up to think about much else.
That’s why it’s smart to go into Black Friday or Cyber Monday with a plan in place, so we can take advantage of deals while we check off items on our personal wish lists or get ahead on our holiday shopping lists. Read on for a list of the best items to buy on Cyber Monday, so you can focus on the other planning you have going on without missing out on these essential shopping days.
As Thanksgiving comes to a close, winter's ready to come in full swing. And for most of us, winter can feel extra wintery once the temperatures start to drop. That’s why investing in a nice new coat is a great move for Cyber Monday.
New outerwear can make all of the difference for the colder season. If you’re not feeling excited about the cold-weather layers in your closet, then taking advantage of Cyber Monday deals is the best time to treat yourself to a new and improved women's winter coat. Take stock of the outerwear you already have and use this as an opportunity to fill in any gaps or to finally upgrade that go-to winter coat that you’ve worn forever.
This is also the perfect time of year to donate old coats or jackets to a local coat drive or donation center as you refresh your outerwear options.
Speaking of a refresh, Cyber Monday is also the best time of year to upgrade the linens in your home. Perhaps you’ve been eyeing a certain set of bed sheets for your own room, or you’ve been meaning to have some more on hand for the guest room for visitors—especially if you’re planning on hosting family or friends over the holiday season.
Outside of bed sheets and standard linens you need, you can also take this as a chance to buy some cozy touches you want. As it gets colder, you’ll likely want to spend more time than usual nesting at home. So, treat yourself and your family (plus any visitors) to comfy touches like a cashmere throw blanket or some new comfy throw pillows when prices are lower than usual.
Just as it’s important to upgrade your bedding from time to time, that’s also the case for bathroom linens. From bath towels to hand towels or face towels for your bathroom or your guest bathroom, fresh linens can do wonders for your space.
Whether you’re looking to switch up the design aesthetic in your home and need new towels to fit the vibe, or you feel like you never have enough of your “good towels” when guests come to visit, this is perhaps the best day of the year to refresh and upgrade your linen closet.
While Cyber Monday is a great time to treat yourself (you deserve it) and upgrade your home, it’s also the best time to start checking off items on your holiday shopping list. Taking advantage of online shopping—and all of the price drops—is a great way to take some of the stress out of gift buying.
Before Cyber Monday, make a quick list of everyone you want to buy gifts for this year. Perhaps you’ll want to snag some home décor gifts for your friend who just moved into a new home or some Christmas décor for your in-laws who always like to outdo themselves with holiday decorations each year. No matter who or what is on your list, you can make some serious headway on your holiday gift list without going over budget if you tackle your shopping on Cyber Monday.
One area of our wardrobes that is all too easy to overlook is our sleepwear. It can be hard to shop for ourselves sometimes, so investing in new pajamas might not always be the top priority. But having comfy, cute, and cozy pajama sets on hand can seriously improve your winter season and any lingering chilly weather beyond.
So, treat yourself without going over budget with a new set of fleece pajamas. These soft and warm PJs will become your new must-have for cold-weather lounging or sleeping. Plus, new pajamas also make great gifts if you’re still undecided on what to get for a few of the folks on your list.
By having a plan in place for your Cyber Monday shopping, you can focus on the rest of your holiday planning without missing out on deals. Take this as an opportunity to treat yourself, upgrade your home just in time for winter, or make some headway on your holiday gift list.
