This is not a drill: Amazon has officially kicked off the holiday shopping chaos—and the savings are out of this world. In anticipation for November 24, the company just launched their Countdown to Black Friday hub, where they’ll be featuring a handful of unheard of sales, “deal of the day” items, and other early access deals for Prime members. Basically, Amazon is our BF strategy this holiday season—and it should be yours, too.

From travel essentials to kitchen accessories to the best in tech, you won’t feel guilty about gifting these products this season—or even keeping them for yourself.
